    Re: 1 Year old - Still refusing solids!

    This might work, but be very cautious when giving dairy to a baby under 12 months, generally babies' digestive systems arent ready to handle dairy much before a year and it can set up an allergy.

    Re: To leave or not to leave

    Wow, that's a tough choice.
    I know, for me, there's no way I would have left my dd for so long at 7 mo.
    but, of course, everyone must find the best solution that works for them, and so must you.

    "Normal" is actually quite a ride range.
