3.5 months is a HARD baby age, my least favorite age actually. They're aware enough of the world around them to want to interact with it, but they don't have the motor skills to do so, so they want to be held all the time. A baby carrier will help a lot - DD was in the Bjorn and Sling a lot at that age. Once she was able to move around and sit up on her own, it was 100x easier because she could finally entertain herself. AP is worth it .
Maybe Buy Buy Baby?

6 year olds shouldn't have a 'big bear belly' with no weight gain to show for it - I would take him to the dr. and get him checked out.
Have you actively taught him about self-regulation? Because otherwise he's going to take his cues from what he sees around him in terms of relationship with food. I've started teaching DS about listening to his body, does it say 'full' or 'hungry', he doesn't have to eat all the food he has on his plate, just until he's 'full'. We read serving size portions on nutrition labels for our snacks and he knows how to find it and count out how much it says to have (whether a...
I believe Dr. Federici is closed to new patients currently (but their office is AWESOME, love their practice and their nurses, we've received excellent care from them over the past two years since they opened! We've never had to wait for an appointment, the office is new and clean, and I really like the computerized medical records all on computer not paper charts). Are you wanting a dr. who is ok with a non-vax patient but might give some pressure to do it, or one who...

I was palpitated by the OB and CNM hospital midwife with pg #1 and the homebirth midwife with pg#2. The Ob was actually the most gentle about it and made a point to teach me the baby's parts and position so I could figure it out on my own too.
