Reagan had her 4 month appointment today - she is growing well and everything looks good. Ok - I'm probably going to get part of this wrong - but he had to separate her labia opening(where the urine comes out) as it looks like it was starting to grow together?!? But he said its common in little girls and he's not worried. We have to stretch it every night for the next few months. So weird!?!

He also said that the Academy of Pediatrics is going to be announcing in the next 6 months a new study that says you DO not have to introduce foods in any certain order (ie: rice/wheats, green veggies, etc.). So he gave me the green light - said she could have any baby foods and even water.

I'm going to do some more research and decide for myself...but just thought I would share.

My niece had the same problem with her labia being adhesive and closing together. They did the same stretching technique but it seem to keep closing so they also prescribed her a hormonal cream to rub on there. It worked great! We would have to use it on her every so often if it started to close again but after awhile it stopped completely.

Kayla had the same thing when she was little. They prescribed a hormone rx to help open it along with us opening it at changings. Worked fine and she's never had a problem since.

Also, When Kayla was little and when I was little for that matter, there wasn't any order for foods either. You just fed them! I'm glad to hear things aren't so complicated now, as they were just a few years ago.
I think people try to make to much of a science out of parenting instead of just enjoying it.

Glad to hear about the order of solids. It was always confusing to me.

Hadn't heard of the little girl issue but it sounds like it's pretty common. Glad it's not something to worry about.

I'm glad she's doing so well. I still can't believe that she's 4months. What are you going to give her to try first?

my dd had a labial adhesion, nothing to worry about, very common...

I think the only reason they put the foods in an "order" is so they don't get a taste for the fruits, because they are sweet, and don't want to eat anything else, I think thats really the only reason, well allergies too I suppose but that is one of the big reason to do cereal, then veggies/meats, then fruits lastly...although I had a friend who did it this way and she only wanted veggies because that is what she started off with, it took my friend forever to get her daughter to eat fruit, she would have to feed her a bite of fruit and then before Kaylee could start crying, she would have to shove a bite of veggies in her mouth! It was the weirdest thing! She loves fruit now though...

Yea - I thought about the preference for fruit, since its so sweet and yummy. I think I'm probably going to start off with a green veggie, but not sure which one! I'm also going to *try* to make some of her food and freeze it.

My son's circ is still readhesing, I know its common for boys and girls to have their parts start growing together since they are cramped in the diaper all the time.

as for the food. I always did rice, then fruits, yellow veggies then green, and lastly meats. and both my boys (2 and 4) totally prefer veggies over fruits and meat over both.. I dont think it matters each child totally has his or her own preference and I think it has alot to do with what you eat in utero, I have always eaten tons of meats and veggies and now my boys do, and my sister is a huge fruit eater, especially when she was prego and her son will devour fruit, will eat veggies if theres no fruit, and wont eat meat
