Have you done research on soymilk? It may not be the best alternative.

comment Kindergarten Teacher teaching in Spanish, should I be concerned?
@TorbenGundtofte-Bruun - the US doesn't have an official language, although English is the unofficial offical language in most areas.

comment Arguments for/against same birthday for siblings?
I'm exactly 9 years younger than my brother, so we shared a birthday but had little in common because of the large age difference. And you're right, it really wasn't a big deal. Of course, we didn't make a huge deal out of birthdays either, shared a cake and had presents, and grew up to think it was cool.

comment When should I allow a child to swear?
@Shantali - You can only express frustration and anger using four letter words? Why would you want your children to be so limited?

comment What are the alternatives for a lactose intolerant baby?
The pediatrition suggested trying the Similac sensitive for 3 days and see how it worked, and if that didn't do it, switch to the Similac Alimentum. That's what she is doing, but it's nice to get additional information, such as the answers below. I've seen pages pushing goat milk and others saying to avoid it, and they almost never even mention if it is raw or pasturized. I've heard bad things about soy formula too -- but there's so much information, all over the place, it's hard to tell the bad from the good.

comment Changing a child's name
Corporate email requires legal name? That's funny! I've known fortune 500 corporations to use nicknames, and US government email accounts too. It often uses the name you use, unless their policies are different. And policies are always different.
