I posted this on the Baby's First Year board but thought I might get a response here too.
I have a 6 month old son who's quickly outgrowing his car seat. As of Jan. 17 he's 20 lbs & 27 1/8 inches long. His car seat maxes out at 22 lbs & 29 inches. Just wondering what the next step is for a car seat? We've been thinking about the convertible car seat & will be looking a new ones this weekend. When is it safe to turn him around to facing forward??
My 6 month old son has his first tooth coming in!! At his 4 month appointment the pedi told us he was cutting 6 teeth at one time-4 on top & 2 on bottom-all in the front. I just happen to glance at his gums earlier today and noticed a front tooth on the bottom is actually breaking the skin & coming in!! He's been acting normal so it must not be bothering him too much. Guess that means the others are not far behind!!
Thanks for letting me share the news!! Hope everyone has a good day!View Thread
