I think you are doing just fine Our youngest DD is 10 months old and eating very little solids. She will try one bite of anything and then turns her head away. She still bf's on demand (often) and is over 24 lbs so I'm not worried at all. She will drink water from an open cup but will not drink bm from a cup, bottle, or sippy. Our older kids are great eaters so it does not concern me when solids get off to a slow start. Every child is different. Some will be picky...
Agree w/PP that you need an Rx for an Epi-Pen Jr. I would also suggest that you discuss an emergency action plan with your allergist http://www.foodallergy.org/files/FAAP.pdf so you are prepared to address specific symptoms when they occur instead using a "wait and see" approach. http://www.kidswithfoodallergies.org/ is a great resource, as well as The Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network at http://www.foodallergy.org
Thanks to all for sharing. DH agreed to have one earlier this year and has yet to make an appointment. We both feel like four children is just right for us and yet neither of us is pushing him to make the appointment. It helps to read about other's experiences.
My 7.5 and 9.5 yr-olds are both still in boosters. None of their friends are even though the law is 8 here.
Yep, move up a size or two. Babylegs are great too.
A few resources for you to take a look at Schools and Food Allergies http://www.suite101.com/content/food...nt-act-a105379
I've never looked at one of my four children and thought, "I wish you weren't here so your sister could take dance class!" That just seems like such an odd thing to worry about. Sure, at times it might seem like life might be a bit easier with just one but you don't have just one. You have to make the best with what you do have and stop comparing your family to anyone else.
My DD is 9.5 months old and is standing on her own and almost walking. Cruises along furniture, walls, etc. She started crawling around six months. I don't think CDs are slowing my daughter down at all. I wish they would! I like late walkers Maybe try more naked time and see how that goes.
I imagine it is a lot easier on a teacher to learn one name for each child rather than their given name AND their nickname Tom for Thomas is one thing but if Tom wants to be called Buddy it gets to be a lot to learn so many names
Nope. We recently added eggs back into our diet so I stopped letting the kids lick the beaters. It actually solved the problem of three kids wanting to lick but only two lick-able beaters
