I too recommend Dr Gonsulin. He delivered Jeff and we had a wonderful experience. Midwife Kathy Acree also attended the birth, and she is now at Gentle Choices birth center. She too was wonderful.

I'm looking around at the trainers that are readily available. Jeff is in 3-6 month pants, but weighs 19 pounds. Small size pants say they fit 20 pounds. Would that fit Jeff's tiny butt?

Ben was horrified that Jeff peed in his "unnerwear" when I brought him home.
