Never leave movers unattended. You'll be amazed just how far they can get in just a few seconds.

nipples: sterilize and keep them clean and make sure you are using the right stage nipple to avoid frustration or choking.
night time routines: keep them consistent or look out for a world of hurt when they get older (my moms advice lol)
nightgowns: (pj's) make sure that it isn't highly flammable, too restricting, too loose, or too warm. Also make sure it is not too big of a hassle to change the diapers... ie too many buttons.

I second that... my kids love jack's big music show... so I let them watch that sometimes. I try not letting the tv be on because my son and daughter both have demonstrated addiction tendencies lol.... they just stare non-stop like it was the best invention in the world.

Never assume your baby can't roll over. There's a first time for everything and most milestones are averages which means someone's baby does it early. You could be that lucky somebody.
