    Re: Taking the LO outside

    Is your LO old enough for an umbrella stroller? If so, perhaps you could leave it downstairs in the morning and bring it up at night so your daycare provider doesn't have to carry it. (If you buy...

    "preparing" tofu

    I want to give DS tofu, but I've never prepared it before. Does it need to be cooked? Heated? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Re: Starting "O"'s

    We started DS on Cheerios at about 8 mos. He had two teeth at the time. At first he put them in his mouth and spit them out -- he really didn't like them. He really enjoys eating his "O"s now,...

    Re: When can I start meats?

    I've read that you're supposed to start meats around 8-9 mos. As for juice, our ped does not recommend it (due to empty calories as pp stated). She recommends DS has water in a sippy cup, which he...
  11. Re: Recommendations for soy products?

    DS is allergic to cow's dairy, and our ped allergist recommended we use the Stage 2 soy formula when he turns 1 year (instead of whole milk or regular soy milk).

    We use the regular soy formula now...

    Pasta for babies?

    DS is 9 mo and I'm wondering what type of pasta is considered safe to give him. Are certain types less likely to make LOs choke?
