Welcome Emma! Was just coming over here to welcome you and intro you and here you are! Ladies it was my pleasure being here with you, now it's Emma's turn! She's wonderful and has a 1 year old herself as she's said!
It' most likely is normal. When he goes to hit you, you might want to take his hand gently and say "nice, do nice" and show him how to gently touch your face or arm with his hand. You might want to talk to his pediatrician about the babbling but that seems pretty normal too. Don't forget at 1 year old, they are growing fast and learning lots and taking it all it. Paying attention to one thing is difficult. But do talk to his doc about all this, you'll feel better knowing it's all normal.View Thread
With the new law that car seats have to be facing the rear now, I can't help but wonder if you had already had baby facing forward and if your little one was enjoying the view.
If they are still facing the rear I imagine they won't care, but having that forward view and as they age, I can't help but think they would love the stimulation of looking at Mommy and out the window and starting to take it all in. Now they have made new safety rules, what are your thoughts about that?View Thread
Make sure you talk to your baby's doctor about this. Don't introduce salt as a fix just yet. Make sure you know how much she may need and if that's what the doctor would recommend for this. Ask questions, call the docs office and share your concerns. Let us know how things go please!View Thread
