Ground up and mixed in water, I think it was used in Eastern Europe for inflammation. Wearing it... is a money maker for the person selling it, cute on a baby, and maybe a choking hazard. I've seen...

My daughter (13 months) doesn't tolerate cow or goat's milk. I weaned her at a year so that we could do an IVF cycle next month (we're in a hurry, because of my age). She will drink hemp milk and...

We found a sitter when my daughter was about 8 months. I really thought only I (and my magic booby) could put her to sleep. I was wrong. The sitter did just fine, as does my husband.

Like the OP, I was fully vaxxed as a child and have had boosters due to foreign travel. I'm one of the healthiest people I know, so, no, no worries. I rarely even catch a cold.

By 9 months, we had established a 7 pm bedtime, give or take an hour. She seemed to always get up around 7 am, so I used that as the starting point. She did drop the third nap, and I temporarily...

How about a clamp on chair? That's what we use when we travel, and as long as your counter isn't more than 2 inches thick, it should work. If you philandteds.com has one, for instance.

Actually, I do know someone who co-slept as a child, and who has terrible sleep issues today. But I doubt the two are connected.

As it turns out, I will have to wean. I had looked up the drugs already, but the issue is more prolactin, which makes pregnancy less likely. At my age, I have a 5% chance of success with IVF; to...
