haven't read the links yet about feeding. wanted to say that i wasn't suggesting replacing breastmilk with solids. i was talking about formula vs. solids. i don't consider formula anywhere close to being in the same category (not the right word but i can't think of it) as breastmilk. just from what i know about the ingredients in formula, i don't see that it's any better than solids as long as baby is getting a well-rounded diet of solids.
never quilted so can't help with that.
i have a bedrail that folds down. i only fold it when i change the sheets. otherwise, it stays up all the time. it's too noisy to fold and set up after putting D down. i read once about wrapping the sheet or blanket around baby and tucking it underneath to keep baby in place in bed. the thing i read swore it was safe but it didn't seem like it would be to me. they also make long pillow things that tie to the bed but they take up a lot of bed space.
carrie ~ that's the exact same thing D did yesterday during his naps. he slept so long after that initial waking that i checked on him 3 times.
groceries wth 3: what kat said. park next to a cart thing with a cart in it. put kids in straight from the car. if you have to carry older child, baby in sling, older child piggy back.
happy boys and big boys! E was 19+ at 5 months.
did i mention ryan's dad? i don't remember. haha! we are not in touch but i do have him on FB. he's the same idiot, just older and uglier. to give you an idea, he just recently got out of prison and is now working as a supposedly professional boxer. but we don't talk or ever see each other.
