I'm concerned about my daughter and the approaching flu season. At my local mothers and infants group, there was an infectious diseases specialist who said that cases of the flu are much higher and starting much earlier this season than is typical. And i have heard some people say that the swine flu is mild, but i've also heard that it has killed a couple of otherwise healthy people without preexisting conditions. My main concern, though, is the age of my child. Can a...
Hi!! I have been driving myself crazy looking for a floor covering for a playroom that is non-toxic and does not offgas. It's for my 9 month old daughter who has just begun to crawl. I want a floor surface that is soft and cushiony so that as she crawls and later walks, she will be protected. I am not looking to cover the entire surface area of the room. (I already have a nice wood floor in the room) I am, though, looking to cover a large area of the room. Those...
They are made from "nontoxic" EVC foam and they are often used in playrooms or daycare centers to provide padding on the floor underneath children. It says that they are nontoxic, but I need reassurance that there is no off gassing of any kind. Does anyone have any experience with this product or one like it? I have a 9 month old baby and I'm thinking about purchasing these tiles for her. You can view them here: www.softtiles.com If you have a moment, I'd really...
I haven't tried bathing in the kitchen sink yet. I'm not sure if it's big enough, actually, for my little porker!
Thanks so much for your reply!! I do have a very basic bouncy seat (no vibration or anything), but she hasn't loved it up until now. I really like the idea of getting one of those seats that you suspend from the door jam which allows the baby to jump up and down off the floor. Is that a jumperoo? And I'm not opposed to the idea of a baby gym. I'm just not crazy about the garrish circusy looking ones, if you know what i mean. Which of those products are your favorites?
I would recommend the book The Secrets of the Babywhisperer. It is not an attachment parenting book, but if you are an attachment parenting parent, maybe you could take from it the ideas that you like. The author's approach is not at all harsh, and her ideas have really worked for me so far. I have a 12week old daughter, and getting her to nap has been a struggle, but it's gotten better and better since I've been using the Babywhisperer's techniques. If you decide to read...
I'm just wondering how you all entertain your babies that are 3 to 5 months old in age. I don't much like the looks of those baby gyms, etc, but I need ideas for making my baby's awake time interesting. I read to her, I hold her and we sway to music together, I have her do a little bit of tummy time, I do some physical activity with her like having her stand up on her legs while I support her and doing bicycle motions with her legs. But I'm wondering if I'm missing...
Hi Honeydee, Can you tell me a little bit more about your friend's farm? Is it organic? Are the cows grassfed? I live in western CT so it would be a bit of a haul for me but maybe I could stock up and freeze the milk that I don't need right away. Thank you!! Katherine
Hi, I'm writing for a friend of mine who doesn't have easy access to the internet. Her 2 year old daughter has a really bad case of eczema, and she doesn't know where to start with treatment options. Her regular doctor is of no help, and she is hoping to get to the source of the problem versus treating the symptoms. Can anyone please help me guide her on where to start? Should she eliminate dairy from her daughter's diet. If so, what are some good dairy subsitutes...
Thank you for your thoughts!! I will definitely post again!
