    The one suggestion I have for you is to...

    Re: never thought it would come to this...

    MAybe he's trying to pick his own schedule. Just a thought. I wonder if for a day or so, you throw your original schedule out the window and see when he's hungry and asking for food or the breast. ...

    Re: never thought it would come to this...

    The insurance company is Liberty Mutual. And I agree that the cholesterol thing, while it annoys me, can be something that could not be considered, but extra weight gain during pregnancy is...
  15. Re: Introducing cow's milk without weaning

    I had to do something similar with DS who is 14 months. And he doesn't like cows milk, plus it gives him gas, making us think he has a possible lactose intolerance, but I decided to give him soy...

    So I finally heard from our life insurance rep and because of the elevated cholesterol levels I do not qualify for the "elite" plan and only the "premium" plan. When I questioned this I was told...
