Starting Solids

Remembering Childhood

I have a love/hate relationship with all the well-wishers who give me advice when I’m pregnant or when I’m wandering the aisles of Target with my little ones. I love that they take the time to stop and offer words of encouragement or advice that made their lives easier. What I dislike is the reminder, though kind and coming from a positive place, that this phase, this age is fleeting and time goes fast.

Raising Bilingual Babies

As the world becomes more accessible through technology and globalization, today’s children have more opportunities than ever to interact with a variety of cultures and languages.

Five Tips for Choosing a Pediatrician

After your baby is born, you will visit the pediatrician often. In the first year, your baby will have seven well visits. Studies show that first-time parents may visit their child’s pediatrician up to 16 times before Baby’s first birthday.

Bringing Home Baby

Whether you’re expanding the brood from one to two or three to five, the family dynamic will change. While you may not be able to quash completely the sibling rivalry that may occur, you can alleviate possible tensions along the way.

Giving Up Naps

From birth, a child progresses at an individual pace on a continuum of sleep, moving from many hours of sleep to naps and then to only nighttime sleeping. A child’s sleep patterns change and develop just as fast as he does, and deciphering what is best for a child regarding sleep and naps can be difficult.
