  • What?!? infant nutrition...

    "Children as young as four weeks old are being fed a poor diet of biscuits, ice-cream and soft drinks, according to new Australian research."
    What are babies made of?

    that's completely nuts. poor kiddos.

    my guy was breast milk only until he started eating food on his own at 8 months, at which point he was breast milk and food. his first food was apple, and then asparagus, broccoli, cucumbers, and so on. he preferred veggies. after age 1, he started eating in earnest, and then "chasing" each meal with breast milk. now he's nursing 3 times a day for comfort/rest. i had to impose a schedule, or he was overdoing it (on my end. ouch!).

    babies need real food.

      my poor firstborn was fed rice cereal at 4.5 months. baby #2 started off well except for that homemade chocolate chip cookie her older brother fed her at around 5-6 months. #3 has had nothing but a little mashed fruit (bananas, avocadoes), apple slices, little bits of meat, coconut oil, and sweet potato. it's possible that a tiny bit of butter made its way from my food to his since we usually share a plate, but nothing else. and of course they were all nursed more or less until they wanted to stop.

            not everyone is as blessed as Romulus and Remus.

            my little guy, btw, shares a name with this famous guy. DS's middle name! first name is a norse word, in reference to a particularly spectacular creature, which comes from an older version in a north germanic root that means "To seize!"

            unfortunately, i am not a wolf, nor did we have access to any, but i bet it would have served him well. although, i suppose, looking to my personal genetic history, i could shape shift.

              My first baby had rice cereal as her first food. My second, bison meat. Guess which one hates bread and loves meat?
              Calm the f**k down.

                Totally! I use it on all sorts of cuts (anti-bacterial properties), and used it in ds' ears when he had an ear infection, and to clean out his eyes after he's gotten a spec of dirt in them, etc...

                Magic stuff!

                  Studies show breast milk cures pinkeye as well as antibiotics do, as I recall. Good stuff.

                    Well, if you don't have access to breast milk the coconut oil is the next best thing. The only thing that has more lauric acid than coconut oil is breast milk.

                      I remember a moment at a friends house when it really struck me just how crappy so many people are to their kids without ever realizing it. So let me set the scene:
                      Mom and dad both smoke, practically chain smoking. Indoors. Baby is 2 years old and has 'another cold'. Baby is sitting in dads lap while dad smokes. Baby is eating twizzlers and oreo cookies. And mom makes some comment along the lines of 'Poor kid has another cold, I don't know where he keeps getting them'........

                      Really? Really? NO clues? Sheesh.

                          my guy got sweets after age 1. his cupcakes for his birthday, which were low sugar but still had sugar, was the first, and then occasionally over the past year when we have it. he has dark chocolate (half a square) about once a month, and ice cream even less. that's really about it.

                          i'm not as extreme as a lot of kiwis, who do not let "children" have sweets, which can be any number of ages depending upon the parent. personally, i don't think sugar is *so* evil as to keep him from it, but i also know that when i give it to him, i have to be aware of what our plans are, time of day, etc, because he needs to be able to "run" it off.

                            my husband did not have sugar until he was 5 or 6.
                            i was raised more closely to noctiluca's sad story, though i probably didn't have that much junk food.

                              My mother-in-law actually tried to give my daughter a sip of diet coke - I don't think she was even 2 years old yet at the time. I swear she was fantasizing about feeding my daughter candy/cookies/ice cream from the moment she was born - perhaps not too surprising considering she is an overweight diabetic who eats one of the most carb-heavy diets I've ever seen...
