It can be an exciting and messy time when it comes to introducing solid foods to young infants. With all the foods that are located on the market, it can be hard to figure out what your baby should be receiving. It also can be difficult to think about when [...]

I wrote a blog about my experience with the premature birth of my son and his time at Winnie Palmer (not specifically named in the blog as I don't have permission to do so).

Are there any other moms here who exclusively breast feed their babies? My little one is almost four months old and she only seems to be having bowel movements once every 5-6 days. She seems happy and not in any distress at all so I haven't wanted to take her [...]

Hello again. I am returning to my part time job soon and have been working on transitioning my breast feed baby to a bottle for a couple of feedings a day and I am having no luck. He refuses to take the bottle at all and is constantly trying to [...]

I found that letting someone else feed my baby with a bottle first really helped. The first time or two I even had to leave the house because if she smelled me she would want to nurse instead! But, it really was helpful to start with someone else, and eventually […]

One of the most challenging aspects of caring for young children is simply not knowing if and when something is wrong with them. Infants and toddlers can't communicate what they're feeling or what may be bothering them, so it often becomes a guessing game when parents sense something isn't right.
