chicken for babies

My baby is no longer a vegetarian…boo hoo! Really I am not sure why I am sad because my husband and I are not vegetarians…but something about it means he’s growing up I guess? My pediatrician recommended waiting until 9 months to introduce meats to baby boy. But I have to say it…check with your

Bedtime is one of the great mysteries of childhood. Sleep schedules? Sleep training? Huh?? We have been fortunate (knock on wood) to have a little one who is such a good sleeper. The first 9.5 months have been smooth sailing, so we will see what happens from here, but so far so good!
