While I won't blame you for failing to know that you can, in fact, let your baby sleep in a cardboard box, there's something I have to tell you: it's been happening in Finland since the 1930s. Every mother-to-be who went in for her standard prenatal checkup left with a free box filled with baby things which, when emptied, could also be used as for baby's bed. It's all the rage now, which begs the question: how long can a baby sleep in a baby box? Turns out, the answer is as complicated as it seems.
My youngest is growing up way too fast. He's quickly approaching his sixth birthday and, no, I'm not ready. A lot of parents brag about their kids and talk how adorable they are, but that's not what I'm doing. You guys, this is the truth: my son is the sweetest human on the planet. Sure, I'm biased, but others tend to agree. So, honestly, the fact that there are more than a few toddler moments I wish I could relive over and over again is anything but a surprise.
Planning every last details of your new baby's life is a time-consuming endeavor. Not only are there sleep training guidelines and uncertainties, but there's feeding and sleepwear worries, safety concerns, and the trial and error of actually living life as a parent. There's always something to think or worry about, and your baby's ability to sleep soundly is no exception. With so many factors involved, it's worthing asking: does the color of your baby's nursery affect their sleep?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
