I am looking for a good first walking shoe for DS. He is only 10m old (has been walking for a month), and I know it's winter (now he has boots for outside and slippers indoors), but I want to be prepared for spring. They should be flexible (he doesn't do well in bulky shoes), but substantially warm. Any suggestions? When I worked with kids years before I had DS, I seem to remember mothers were all into these shoes where the sole comes out and the bottom is clear so that...
Maybe I am overreacting, but I really have a problem with this african safari toy. I hate that two lily white people are being chaffeured through Africa by a black man while what? destroying the animals' natural habitat? http://www.nubiusorganics.com/ImagiP...set-P1774.aspx who makes this garbage? What next? A plantation with slaves?

It is totally possible to get them from sheets, although I would hope that a B&B would be washing the linens between guests so that this would not be an issue. I don't know what you have, mama, but it really does not...

The mites can't survive too long off the body, so people rarely get it from the environment. Yes,...

So far only on my lower stomach/hip. Maybe they don't like my fingers because tey're so cold and dry these days...Just went out and...
I was eating some (we are dairy free due to a sensitivity) of this stuff: http://www.soydelicious.com/products...t_Reviews.html and he hijacked it and went nuts for it. I don't eat it too often, and I want to keep him away from the sugar, so he won't always have it, but can he have it sometimes?

She had to wash all her bedding, clothes she had worn, her carpeting, etc. She got a cream from her doctor. I just can't think of how I would have gotten it. I only spend time with DH and DS and it seems like it's almost impossible to get it from sheets...

He got a medicated cream and had to put it on overnight....

Quote: Originally Posted by Bea Your bites sound more like bed bugs than scabies, espescially the bites being in a line. WIKI BED BUGS I thought that too at first, but they're still pretty itchy after 3 nights and no new bites...If it was bed bugs, wouldn't I have new bites and wouldn't they be all over and my son as well?
