I know this is a very old post but to the benefit of people looking at this post for advice of course deli meat would be fine occasionally. Like a couple times a month. (My opinion). As for a realistic meal plan by 15 months baby should be eating what you eat (cut up appropriately) as often as possible. I think this is a good opportunity to have the whole ...

In addition to the methods already mentioned, here are things we've done with success: Using a cool mist humidifier that has some Vicks VapoRub (although we buy a generic brand) dissolved inside the water. You can also purchase dissolvable tablets for humidifiers, such as eucalyptus tablets. We run a small HEPA air purifier inside his room The air ...

We've consulted our choice of shoes with an orthopedist. He explained to us that human feet were "designed" to be walked on soft surfaces like mud, grass, sand, etc. A child can safely walk bare-foot on such surfaces, and also on carpets or all sorts of soft surfaces one can imagine. Shoes are not needed in such cases. However, if your floor is hard - ...

Actually, my LO does this burrowing frantically and refuses to nurse. She has to have her face buried and me standing and walking around to soothe her alot. I was told they do this for reflux. (Even silent reflux) which also makes sense because she was recently diagnosed and is on Zantac. Rooting is completely different than what you're describing. If you ...

What a great question! Congratulations on your first baby and your decision to try breastfeeding. It's much harder than you think, but don't give up because it is very rewarding. Anyway, some ways your husband can help are: Before feeding, dad can change the baby and get her undressed. It'll give him some skin time, and some face time. My kids used to ...

Its still a great challenge for us to figure out our baby's needs. Our baby is 10 months old and now its winter, which naturally is making her appetite go high and naturally making her sleep longer at nights, but it still varies every single night. But be assured, you and the baby will get used to and get accommodated with the surroundings pretty well pretty ...

Just for completeness - you also need to see if it's just the speech, or many other developmental markers. The reason is that - as I was told by many pediatricians - twins tend to exibit major developmental delays specifically in their speech because of the existence of the twin - the communicate non-verbally and thus experience less need to learn to talk. ...

As a parent of children who are 4 and 6, I've been amazed at what things they seem to have retained from a time when I would have thought they were too young to understand it. My son, in particular, seems to keep things at the back of his memory until such time as he gains the mental tools to actually wrestle with them. It sounds as though your husband's ...
