Hi there,
Just wanted to chime in that I did indeed take Women's Precious right up until I got a positive pregnancy test with my son. So I guess I actually took it for the first two weeks or so of...

Hi there,
We are using Dr. Gordon's method right now (more on that in a bit)! From the description of your DS's reaction, it sounds like you do need to wait and give it another try in a few months....

I worried so much about mobility when DS was little! He didn't even like *rolling* and hardly ever did it until he was very close to crawling. DS also never scooted - he didn't crawl until he could...
