As soon as my daughter seemed comfortable on the stairs, I let her play in another room/floor. Of course, it's easier if you are up and they are playing down, as there's not such a great chance of falling on the stairs. :) We took off the gate when we realized we were never using it, and that it was only serving to narrow the staircase!  
gorgeous. and natural and creative and wow.  
One of my dearest friends is a longer-term Waldorf parent of three girls (I'm new to this!), and while she's very very Waldorf, she said that Legos are one of two plastic toys (perler beads is the other) that are so so good for kids, and don't really have a corresponding Waldorfian counterpart. hth.
I just ordered a Peppa doll from amazon -- it's a fair trade waldorf doll for your younger set (my dd is 13 months), and it's way less $ than bamboletta or other waldorf options. I figure I'll lure myself in with this one, and then when she's older, I'll make the bigger commitment.
Just reviving this oldish thread to agree -- my daughter just turned one, and I love that book. It got great reviews on amazon, and I think the biggest thing I've learned is to do one piece at a time. I happened to see different-colored bean bags in a montessori catalog, so I sewed my DD 6 bean bags, each a different color, and put them in a basket. Then got a bookshelf (Ikea Expedit) so I could separate different materials. Right now, I'm focusing on a few different...
another vote for women's health in wellesley. I used the mwives there and had a great experience. also, being new to boston, I appreciated that it was easy to get to and had parking. delivered at newton-wellesley hospital, same, and loved it. hoping to do it again!

Any recent information and/or success stories? (or words to the wise?) I just did my first (BFN) FET last month; my DD is 12 months. I have one frozen blast for another FET (if it makes the thaw; in the first thaw, one made it, one did not), and then it's on to IVF again. I am working on weaning my DD a bit for the FET -- but she's not liking cow's milk nor drinking water quite enough for my liking, plus she's completely interested in bf (as am I, alas!)... We're down...
good point. since I'm old/lesbian/working on my second child, I forget to think about this as infertility. I just think of IVF etc as the way to get pregnant! (I forget that there are other ways...) thanks!

Oy, so confused -- a friend who is a hospital-based MW at W&I just recommended that I see Cynthia Siegel at Ob-Gyn Associates. I told her that my ideal was an unmedicated home waterbirth, but that I was in all likelihood going to go to a hospital -- and she said that CS at OB-GYN was the closest I would get to that. In the moment (i.e. on my cell phone while grocery shopping!), I forgot to ask her about MMH at Memorial. In the meantime, I'd love if others have...
