I want to buy some sort of test/monitor/indicator to help figuring out my ovulation days. Could someone please recommend me one?   Thanks Sophie
My 2.5mo is tilting her head to one side for the last 3 days. Is it normal? She is also more irritable, and I am thinking that she might have an ear infection and the head tilting a part of the ear infection thing. But I am really just guessing. Should I take her to a chiropractor for a neck issue or to the pediatrician to check for an ear infection? I prefer not to take her anywhere, so will go only if its really necessary (I don't like my ped and the insurance...
My 2.5mo DD seems to have an ear infection. Can someone please recommend natural treatments? I have garlic drops, but don't know if its safe for such a little baby. Thanks Sophie

This will make the campaign of "I did it for my baby" totally misleading. However, some claim that the vaccine actually...

I want to take my 2.5 yo to a pool for the first time and have no idea what gear (except the swimsuit) do I need for her. Can you please advise? Thanks Sophie
I keep hearing how wonderful is Rescue Remedy. But is it safe to use for infants? If yes, what is the way to use it? My 6wo DD2 has episodes of colic once in a while, and I am willing to trying whatever at this point Thanks Sophie
