This is from a baby newsletter emailed to me at week 26. Azalea is almost 6 months old.<br><br>
On solids:<br><br>
If you haven't started Azalea on solid foods, you should start soon - her iron and calorie requirements increase around six months of age and exceed what your breast milk or formula alone can provide. .... It's best to start with rice cereal, which is gluten-free and less allergenic than other foods. .... Your baby should be able to eat about half a cup of cereal a day before you add other baby foods.<br><br>
Bizarre advice: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br>
Girdles are not just for giving you an hourglass shape; they can also help to support your back when you are carrying Azalea. Strengthening your back muscles through exercise and lifting weights can also help relieve some of the pain. She is only going to get bigger and heavier before you are relieved of your carrying duties. Try one if your back hurts - you may even like the way it makes you look too!<br><br>
No, I don't plan to give my DD solids any time soon (certainly not half a cup of cereal <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: ) and I can not for the life of me imagine buying and wearing a girdle.

What's the copyright on the newletter? 1965? Do they give you advice how to keep the house tidy and please your husband too?

The girdle - too funny. Do they even make girdles any more? I think my grandmother (age 92) stopped wearing them about 25 years ago.....<br><br>
A 1/2 cup of cereal! Goodness. I don't think an adult could choke down a 1/2 cup of rice cereal.<br><br>
Where did this newsletter come from?

Sadly, this was intended as current info from a weekly newsletter... I don't think I'm allowed to name the site here. I haven't unsubscribed mostly because they're amusing and keep me aware of the advice the masses seem to hear. This one just takes the cake however. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Hmm...the solids thing...Thats a bit much! Dd only ate about a tbsp or 2, for a couple of months! She didn't work up to 1/2C till only about age 18mo!<br><br>
As for the girdle thing... Actually a girlfriend of mine did that. Her son was HUGE and she and her Dh actually hurt their backs carrying him. They ended up buying a weightlifter's girdle (one for each of them because they come in different sizes), and it helped tremendously.
