Introducing Dairy: revising my view on weaning to cow’s milk

This week, I have begun to introduce dairy products to Jonah. His formula is soy based, so he has never had anything made with milk that comes from another animal. I was nervous about introducing dairy to Jonah too early, as I’ve read that immature digestive tract lacks the ability to keep allergens out of…

Our New Carrier

I recently bought a Baby Bjorn carrier from a children’s consignment store. I love going to this particular consignment store called Once Upon a Child. They are a chain, and I had a couple that I went to in Cleveland. When we moved here to Toledo, one of the first things I did was find…

Baby Signing!

The Signing Queen

Gabi has really taken off with signing. They all can do “all done” but she seems to be the one that really uses signing to communicate. She uses “more” and “milk” on a regular basis and has been adding words to her signing vocabulary such as “mama”, “dada”, and “baby”. I’ve been trying to capture…

Today was Fletcher’s first taste of solid food and my first attempt at making baby food.  We bought a Beaba baby Cook after reading all of the amazing reviews.  I knew I was going to make my own food and this seemed to be the easiest way for me to do so.  The price is…
