• Lisa Belkin, Lost And Found

    The New York Times Original Founding Motherlode Blogger Now Shares Her Parenting Wisdom At The Huffington Post

    By Eric Messinger

    [Two Editor's Notes]   

    1. New York Family & The Plaza Hotel are giving away a
    two-night Babymoon to new and expectant parents (with infants or
    toddlers.  Sign Up Here.  We’re also giving away two sets of Skip Hop’s new and wonderful 4-piece crib bedding line. More Here.

    2.  New York Family has just established a wonderful (and free)
    weekly e-newsletter for expectant and new parents (up to toddler). 
    Check it out and sign up  here. — 

    And now for the post on Lisa Belkin and nanny-care:  

    In that haphazard Facebook kind of way, we recently
    caught the enticing headline to a post by Lisa Belkin about child care. It
    said, simply, “Is A More Expensive Nanny Really Better?” Great question,
    right? And Belkin delivers an excellent exploration of it
    here
    .

    As the original New York Times Motherlode blogger,
    Belkin thoughtfully explored the parenting life from just about every angle you
    could think of.  

    In case you’ve been looking for her (and you should be),
    or in case your not familiar with her, she left the Times a few months ago and
    is now sharing the wisdom as a Life/Work/Family columnist at the Huffington
    Post. 

    You can follow her blog here.

    And no, more expensive nannies are not necessarily
    better!
