The book "Smart Medicine for a Healthier Child" has just such a list. If you don't have it, it is a great book. It lists treatment methods (conventional, homeopathic, herbal, acupressure) for illnesses. Hope that helps.
after 20 months of motherhood I finally got to read a book, that was not raising my child related, and to see a movie. Thought I would pass along how much I enjoyed the book "the Da Vinci Code" and the movie 21 grams. As far as the movie goes, if you don't like intense & depressing movies DO NOT go see this one. It was the heaviest movie I have ever seen but I loved the way the movie developed, the acting, etc. Anyone else have any good book or movie...
You might also want to look at Garnet Hill. I think it is www.Garnethill.com. THey are a great natural fibers catalog. We bought a cover for our king from them. Have never used it. We just ended up using all the "chucks" pads we gently lifted (and it was a lot of them) from the hospital.
However, we'll still let her go nuts at our house. Truth be told, we do not have any high furniture-book cases, etc. We have sofas and chairs and a tricycle on which she loves to balance standing up on the seat! I think she has a future in trick horseback riding Personally, I love the aspect of climbing because it challenges and helps kids to learn their physical limits. I also don't want to instill a lot of fear in my daughter. I want her to...
It's never been an issue with our dd climbing in others homes or restaurants, etc. She just doesn't. We never had to teach her. I think kids pick up an amazing amount of stuff and know when they can do what. So, our house is generally a free for all as I said above when we go to others homes she acts just fine. Also, as with everything, climbing is a good phase they go through, I believe. As she gets older we will move her into the climbing gym,...
well, both my husband and I are climbers (rock and ice) and when our dd started to climb all over the place we loved it! She climbs everything-of course we don't have any book cases for her to climb but nothing is off limits at our house. Believe it or not she has incredible balance, has never fallen, and we are always there to "spot" her. I love letting her test her limits. It's amazing. So, I say just be there with loving hands to catch. I know some might not agree...
Hi I am from vermont also. We do have a philosophical exemption. Try not to worry. I know soooo many mamma's who do not vaccinate. Personally, I think CPS would not pursue this especially in Vermont where people are fiercely protective about their legal rights. where in vermont are you from?
I am on a quest to locate a waldorf style wooden sliding board. Any ideas? We have friends who found one at a garage sale and my dd loves it. I am thinking it would be the perfect gift to ask the inlaws to purchase for Christmas. If anyone has one they are willing to sell just let me know. I know I shouldn't start a thread about the commercialism of christmas but this is one gift that would be used and last forever
we cosleep but when we travel to MIL's house we have to use a full size bed and for a family of three it just doesn't work out. So, dd uses a pack n play. We have never had any issues and she sleeps really well in it. Granted, I am up all the time bc I miss her and have to check on her-even though she is still right next to us in the same room. My thoughts, the pack n play is harder on me than it is on her:
My dd is in a daycare with children who are atleast 6 months older than her so she is the baby at 17 months. The other kids are constantly telling her "No" or trying to tell her what to do. She seems to let their comments go in one ear and out the other and just does what she wants anyway. But still, I worry. I have no choice but to use daycare at this point and really love the setting and provider. It's an in home with only 4 other kids who happen to be...
