Daycare & preschool search (San Francisco only)

I have a 2 and 4 year old and am tired of it being so hard to figure out my child care options. So my partner & I researched and indexed 800+ child care providers in SF, including the impossible-to-find in-home daycares. (Other cities are coming, but I started here because I live here.)

Breastfeeding & pumping helper app for iPhone

I had a baby this year, and we had a LOT of trouble with breastfeeding and pumping. I used basically every baby app I could find and found most to be frustratingly bad. So I made my own, and after 6 months of development (during naps no less) it went up on the App Store today. It works for nursing, pumping, or bottle-feeding moms, and even supports twins/multiples. And it is designed to be used one-handed. [more inside]

Decorated lunch bags for my two kids

For the past year and change, I've been sending my two sons two school with custom lunch bags that I make for them every day that they're at my house (i.e., half of the time). I've painted, drawn, collaged, cut, and stenciled. Sometimes I make an image based on a historical event that happened on that date; sometimes the boys request a particular illustration; and sometimes I just go with my muse. I guess there are a handful of parents doing this in various ways, so it's not the most revolutionary thing ever, but I'm pretty pleased with how a lot of the bags have come out, so I thought I'd share.

A daddy blogger project for children that ask too many questions

Prompted by my own fears of ignorance, I've started a daddy blog devotes to answering difficult questions such as 'how deep is the sea?'. If you have any suggestions for questions, please hit me up.

We Think He Might Be a Boy: Raising a Transgender Child

You may recognize me from my many comments in trans-related MetaFilter threads as both the partner and the parent of transgendered people. I was recently asked to contribute an essay about my five-year-old son's gender history to Friends Journal, a national Quaker magazine. Here it is!

Special Needs Parenting Blog

I've been keeping a blog that details my experiences as a parent of a child with multiple disabilities. In 2012, I started interspersing a series of articles that are a set of simple projects that any parent can do to help their child with Down syndrome (or any child with gross or fine motor issues). Finally, in a bout of craziness, I have signed up to run the Falmouth Road Race in order to raise money for the Massachusetts Down Syndrome Congress, an organization that has been immeasurably helpful to our family and so many others.

The How Not To Kill Your Baby Official Growth Chart Of Doom

Have you ever read a parenting book that left you feeling inadequate and/or terrified? In other words, have you ever read any parenting book whatsoever? Then you might enjoy my new book How Not To Kill Your Baby, a parody of all those crazy-making pregnancy and parenting manuals. It comes complete with a poster-size detachable Growth Chart of Doom, which will tell you if your baby is big enough to survive an encounter with an angry capybara. For the story of why I decided to write the book, you can read my guest post at the New York Times Motherlode blog. [more inside]

Elevator Madness

In our latest improv short, my wife, Adria Dawn and I explore what happens when a pregnant woman gets trapped with a self-proclaimed pregnancy expert. This is a slightly twisted take on how soon-to-be parents really feel sometimes. We hope you enjoy it.

The Good Men Project

“The Good Men Project is a glimpse of what enlightened masculinity might look like in the 21st century,” the press raved when we launched, and that was exactly what we were hoping for. Finally, “a cerebral, new media alternative” to glossy men’s magazines was born. In fact, The Good Men Project is not so much a magazine as a social movement; an ongoing in-depth discussion that has by now involved millions of people, all getting back to a core question of “what does it mean to be a good man in these modern times?”.
