Babies R' Us Taking Back BPA Bottles

I was just over at Fina' Drea and she returned 5 Avent bottles to Babies R' Us today (and yes they were worn and old) and she got $25.00 for them! I am KICKING myself right now for throwing out all my old BPA bottles. I would love to take advantage of this and replace them with some BPA-free sippy cups for my little man.

Well maybe some of you will be able to take advantage of this GREAT opportunity. If you are not sure if your bottles contain BPA check out the Z-Report on BPA at ZRecommends; this is a very thorough listing of most if not all bottle companies. If you do take advantage of this leave a comment and let us know how it turned out :-)

Sorry About All the Changes

Sorry about all the changes lately, I have been looking for a template background that I like and the blue one with flowers just wasn't working. It was difficult to see some of the fonts and I just wasn't "feeling" it. So what do all you think, even those of you who are lurking out there *grin*.

I would love to hear from those of you who read this blog, is there anything you would like me to do or questions you have that I can try to answer or get the answers to. I am in the middle of developing a new series on babywearing and there will be more to come soon.

Food Introductions

It appears that, in general, far less significance is placed on systematic food introductions for children. This seems to be a lost practice; some of my friends look at me like I am crazy when I say that I didn't give Allie peanut butter until she was three or that I just give Jack egg yolks (until he turns one). Perhaps there is a reason we have so many food allergies in children today. I can not remember even one friend growing up that was allergic to anything, however, this year in my first grade class I had two students with numerous food allergies, some of which are life threatening. I am not suggesting that anyone caused an allergy; I just think that we need to be more conservative in our food introductions. has a great chart that shows when foods should be introduced by the babies age. This is a great list to print out and take with you to your pediatrician for discussion.
