Solids...when to start?
Hi all...

I have a three month old little boy (actually he's three months and two weeks - born 10/13) and he's currently formula feeding exclusively. Wondering when would be a good time to start trying the rice cereal diluted with formula.

He's gotten a handle on sitting up on his own and loves to do it. Just not sure if I'd be doing something wrong by trying now with introducing rice cereal once a day to get him used to a spoon. I would still be feeding him his formula on a normal feeding schedule, but I'd add this in once a day for now to see how it goes.

I was hoping other moms could give me some insight on how they introduced solids to their babies and when. I understand that all babies are different and I'll take that into consideration. =)

Any suggestions/advice would be much appreciated.

Breastfeeding mommies
what does everyone think of starting a fall mothers breastfeeding community? I know there is a breastfeeding community in general that's great but I thought it'd be nice to have one for moms with babies in the same age group for support and advice.

Baby Treyvan's Here!!!
Hello everybody!

Erinn's still at the hospital, so I thought I'd jump on here and let everyone know the great news!
Treyvan Jay Starnes McDonald was born @ 12:51pm on Tuesday October 3rd. He weighed 7lbs 11oz and was 19 1/2in. Erinn'll post a full Birth Story after the weekend but here's the short version. Went into labor about 9pm on Monday Night. After 16 hours of labor & NO DRUGS!!!! Treyvan was born. Great labor & I have the most amazing wife in the whole world! He's breastfeeding fairly well for how long he's been at it & is the calmest most well behaved (and adorable) kiddo Ever!

We'll keep everyone informed & have pictures soon, promise!

I'm 36 weeks today. We're still breech, and I'm not (or at least trying not to be) concerned about it. If this is the way the baby needs to come out, then so be it.

We received TONS of hand-me-downs! On top of the clothing I had from my first child (I kept some of it, donated most of it), we also have clothing from my friend who has two girls, and clothing from my grandmother- baby girl clothes from the 50s! She suggested that I sell some of it on ebay because she has seen some outfits (from that era) selling for as much as $50 a piece! We have so much clothing already that I'm considering selling at least some of it. Speaking of ebay, it turns out that my grandma also has a doll that was appraised at $22K. Wow. It's funny, because I grew up seeing that doll, and it's just sitting in her living room. But to think what $22K could buy...

Anyway, so I really enjoyed washing all of these outfits and putting them in the little dresser that we bought for the wee one. My son helped to pick out the baby's washcloths and also her blankets- I think he really enjoyed that. He picked out a gorgeous, very soft blanket with a cute little giraffe on it. I made sure to emphasize that these were for the baby, because I'd hate to have issues with it down the road (I bought blankets specifically because I didn't want to make him share his).

I'm thinking of dropping the midwife. She's really pushing an ECV for the breech presentation. I just don't feel right about that, and after reading someone's summary of her ECV, I'm even less comfortable with the idea. So, we'll see if the baby turns (we are doing the Webster technique weekly, as well as maintaining good posture, and I'd consider moxibustion but I have to look into it further) and if she doesn't, I guess she'll come out "right" side up! Either way, I'm not sure how I'll explain it to the midwife. In her eyes, it's an ECV or a c-section.

Hi all...I'm currently working on building my baby registry and was wondering if there are items that you register for which you never used or used but didn't like? I want to avoid registering for items that seem useful but don't do the trick. Some items I'm on the fence about are:

1. Wipes Warmer
2. Bottles...there are so many types...Ventaire or Avent?
3. Bottle Warmer
4. Sterilizer

Any and all advice are much appreciated! :)

Looks like this community is pretty quiet so far. ;)
I just joined today, and I thought that I'd introduce myself. My name is Rachel, I am married, and have one son and obviously a baby in October (as well as having a few pets and an organic garden). My due date is three months prior to my son's third birthday, and I'm pretty happy with that spacing. We plan to find out the sex of the baby in May, mostly for hubby's sake, as I could wait until the birth. I'm teetering between a homebirth (unassisted or assisted) and a hospital birth with a lovely midwife.
I just ordered a pregnancy workout video, which I thought I'd share with all of you. It's called The Perfect Pregnancy Workout (a litte pretentious, I know). I've used The Perfect Postnatal Workout after the birth of my first child, and I was very pleased with it, so I imagine I'll like this too.
Anyway, wanted to introduce myself and say "hi".
