Your kid on a food strike? Try this

Babe was going through some things. Something. No idea what. 4.5 and she was feeling all the things. Tantrums, which had seemed to have disappeared, returned with a vengeance. And started to become pickier with food. I guess she’s still going through some of these things, but the picky eating, we “fixed.” As a couple, […]

We spontaneously gave her a taste while we were sharing watermelon with our friends at a barbecue. Poor […]

Baby Choking: What do we do?

Baby Choking: What do we do?

What could be more terrifying than watching your baby choke? Not knowing what to do…Standing there helplessly panicking or digging to try to get the food/object out. I started thinking about these terrifying things now that our baby is eating food, is becoming more mobile and has better dexterity. She puts everything in her mouth! […]
