Hello ladies! I have a question and I have been waiting for hours to hear back from my ped office...If an adult has strep and is around my 1.5 year old, can my son get it? I heard that kids under 2 can not catch it due to the glands not being fully formed, but I could be misinformed. Also, about how long before he could show signs of having it if he did catch it? Thanks for your help.View Thread
Also, he loves different types of fruits and veggies, but he still would rather have them puree or mashed up instead of as small pieces or whole pieces. I am crossing my fingers that this changes after his teething situation calms down alittle. I just get really upset and worried when he gags on his food.View Thread
I am in the same position. I have been trying to introduce "big people" food to my son and he does not seem to eat much. I also have noticed that with his teething that he just hoardes his food in his cheek like a squirrel and ends up gagging on his food. I am also trying to see about switching to regular milk, but do not know how much to start him out on, or if it should be slowly introduced, or which type of milk to start on (whole or reduced). My parents make fun of me for doing things "by the book" as they call it, but I just want to keep my little monkey man happy and healthy. Any advise would be greatly appreciated!! View Thread
