My 10.5 m-o DD just started eating bread and cheese last week (in addition to pureed fruits and veggies, and oatmeal). Went from gagging on thick oatmeal to shoveling bread into her mouth 4 pieces at a time within a day. You might try that----I think all the whole grains and carbs really fill her up (and make her poop more solid, which is a plus!) and she loves some organic american cheese in little nickel-sized pieces. They're both soft and easily dissolved and easy to...
Great thread! Question: Can you use just baking soda and water, or is there anything harmful to babies about baking soda?

Thanks all!

Typical modern-day dramatization of pain and crime, ala Oprah and Law and Order SVU. Sick. Wow, I found it to be completely the opposite. I felt it helped to put most men in the clear by teaching you how to distinguish *actual* warning signs from those behaviors that are not, in...

That's really interesting---may I ask what culture this is? I'd love to learn more about the origins of this.
We have a fireplace that has no doors---they must have gotten broken off at some point, and the fireplace is probably 20 years old so it will be a while before we can find doors that fit (I think----unless they're all standard?). Probably will have to have them custom made. Until then, does anyone have any ideas on how to block it up decoratively with something that's relatively easy to get out when we want to use it? Something to discourage DD from getting into...

"Mama bear instinct" isn't an excuse for making unsupported, potentially devastating accusations. We can protect our children without calling every male who likes children a child molester. I get your point, and it is a very serious thing. I just don't think that agreeing...
Define singing? My DD (10 m) vocalizes along with her favorite songs, but can't carry a tune and no words. Just babbling in a singsong way.

Not only are warning bells going off in your head, but this man is paying way too much attention to your dd. The touchy feely behavior and taking your dd out of your presence is a HUGE red flag. Trust your instincts that this is not normal. I would in no uncertain terms make it very clear to this...
