    Apples

    Anyone have trouble with LO eating apples? My LO is 7 months and has recently eaten apples. She has a terrible red rash on her bum. I'm wondering if apples are too acidic for her at this point.
  2. Re: LC stressing me about baby's weight gain

    You're LO is absolutely fine! Your doctor is right - 1/2 oz to 1 oz per day is average and normal. There are tons of sources out there that say so, including my trusted Dr. Sears...
