If it is for your daughter....go onto Gerber's website and go under toddler and then nutrition and development then you should see a link for interactive menu planner. You type in her info and it will give you a nice menu for 7 days. I use it....I don't follow to the exact but it helps with portion size and such.View Thread
Thanks sooo much for your help!!! I really appreciate hearing what other people's experience have been like. I am hoping we have an easy time of it like we did with DS as far as pregnancy and getting pregnant! I will keep you posted on what happens!View Thread
Thank you sooo very much for your help! This was very helpful! I should have rephrased the "I do everything for him" line....meaning my husband isn't much help. But my DS does help with laundry he puts his own clothes in the hamper. Helps me put dishes in the dishwasher and helps clean up his toys. So he does help me with stuff. And will not let me feed him he wants to totally feed himself. So that part is good. It is just that him and I do everything together my DH doesn't do alot with us. It is good to know that if all goes well and we are able to have a 2nd baby that after the newborn stage it does get easier. I really appreciate your advice and time!!View Thread
Hey All! Looking for a little advice or to vent not sure what lol! I really want to start trying for a second baby in the fall and I along with my DH have some fears! The biggest is can we afford another child??? How do you mommies do it with a second child to feed, cloth and put in daycare? The other biggie is my DS is extremely attached to me. He doesn't like when I pay attention to other children or hold another baby. Plus I do everything with him and for him and I know he loves me very much cause he constantly gives me hugs my fear is how do I divide me attention and love so that DS won't feel neglected and resent a new baby? Also my son is 15 months right now we wouldn't start trying for a couple more months. Is it easier or harder when they are close in age?View Thread
I know sometimes Antibotics can make them very gasy. When my LO was one them he would all of sudden stop playing a cry in pain. The doc said it is gas built up you can try gas drops. But I would still call your doc cause of the vomitting. He might be allergic to the antibotic?View Thread
I have a 14 month old. And I was glad that Olivetre shared how she potty trained. I plan on starting the process in November when he is 18 months old. And I am totally stealing your idea. I love it. Thanks for the advice!View Thread
I know around here (PA) what we have going around is Hoof and Mouth disease. And The way you describe it that is what is sounds like. I don't want to scare you tho so many check with your doc. Another if it is extremely hot where you are which I think most of the US is extremely hot right now maybe prickley heat? Good Luck!View Thread
Hi All! I have a question. I was wondering is it possible for LOs to stop teething for a long period of time? My little guy cut his 1st two teeth at 5 months and he pretty much cut a tooth every month until he was 10 months old. He has six teeth and now has completely stopped cutting teeth. He has not had a new tooth come thru since he was 10 mos old. He will be 13 months on Sunday. Should I be concerned?View Thread
I know it is fustrating and then to top it off it takes forever for them to eat lol! Well my little guy just started this past week to eat everything I put down in front of him before that I would give him green beans one day he would gobble them up next day push them away and refuse to eat them. I was told it takes a awhile for them to figure out there taste buds and consistency of the food is hard for them too. It does take some serious patience tho lol! All I can say is the doctor told me that no child will starve themself when they are hunger they will eat. So I would recommend to you try to make sure he is awake for at least 15 mins or more before eating, try not to give him milk or juice before letting him eat and make sure he is sitting in a high chair at the table watching you eat as well. Also take bits off his tray and put it in your mouth and see YUM!!!! This works great with my little guy to get him to eat.View Thread
