Re: mini pill vent!!

Whoooaaahhh, 2-3 nursing sessions a day for a 9 month old is NOT enough at all. All three of mine have been nursing at least 6 times during the day and 2-3 times through the night at 9 months. They...

Re: Interesting article about the Duggar family.

I believe they simply NTNP. They leave babies coming along up to God.

Also, because they homeschool they have an extra 6-8 hours on most families for time they can spend with their individual...

Re: what do you consider talking?

I don't count it until they use the word purposefully. So like she says water "yadah" and Mummy "Mumum" and Elias "Lala"... she TOTALLY means it, and so I count it. Similarly, she'll sign milk and...

Re: what do you think a child can learn

I would do songs, stories, crafts, and physical activity. IMO no children's church program should involve videos.

Re: Bottle/breast weaning

I figure she will wean when she's good and ready. I have nursed my other two until they were 2 or older, so I imagine we will get at least that far with Esther as well.

Re: Food Pouches

We don't buy them for any of our kids, let alone Esther. :) I wonder, honestly, how clean they are, knowing that capri sun pouches can grow molds before a kid opens it (plus we can't afford them).
