Now that our DD is almost 8 months - and getting into tons of the stage 2's and advancing to stage 3... with SO many items in them, when can you stop introducing as "a new"? Like there's Macaroni and cheese, spinach lasagna, chicken and something, spaghetti, blah blah blah? you know? when is it okay to just feed and go?

Hey there! I pretty much stopped introducing. I usually still buy 4 jars of the new food, and give her the 4 before I move on to a next one. Just easier for me that way. I don't stick too much to the first foods guidelines anymore.

My experience is, that ANY TIME you are introducing a new ingredient, you should treat it like a new item and introduce it. If she has a reaction, it is obvious what caused the problem.

Jewelry for yourself, or for a friend. Breastfeeding aides, beautiful bracelets, earings and more.

Justmommies predictions for your labor and childbirth:

Just about the time you think you can't handle hearing one more "when is that baby going to pop?", your baby will decide to make it's appearance. We predict your baby will be born 3-7 days before your due date. Your baby will most likely be born in the evening. Justmommies predicts that your baby will weigh approximately 8.8 pounds and that your labor will be about 11 hours long.
