I've done it, although it does require extra precautions. In addition to the those that you've already listed, I'd also keep in mind that the sand is reflective so baby may still be getting sun even if she's in the shade. Also, talk to your doctor but if I remember correctly sunscreen is not generally recommended for babies under 6 months of age because of the chemicals they contain.
Terms are endearment are fine with me, but I do think it is somewhat rude to nickname someone else's child without asking the permission of the parents and receiving their approval.
In my own life, I know people who do this because of their own upbringing. As children, they were fed convenience/non-nutritious/non-organic/etc. foods and they are okay with that. So, they chose to feed their children the same way and may think to themselves "Well, I was raised on these types of foods and I turned okay, so why shouldn't I feed my child (ren) the same way." It's an interesting type of logic, for sure.
Hi Mamas, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a yoga studio on Long Island. The summer class schedule at the studio that I attend is changing for the summer and will no longer work for me. I suppose I could look up a replacement studio in the phone book, but I'd much prefer to go on recommendations. Thank you!
