So your Doctor gave you the go-ahead to start solid food, now what? At 4 months the Wee Baby T started on Solids. We had literally minutes of enjoyment as he spit his baby oatmeal all over himself. He was a complete mess, but each time we fed him he got a little better. After […]
We can bicker and argue about who brought this cold into the house from their subway commutes all day, but until we get through it, the blame doesn’t really matter.
When i told my boss that the Wee Baby T was on his way, he offered some great advice as well as a warning about how much time I would spend cleaning and getting bottles sterilized. Having no previous experience I took him at his word, but I think my wife and I have a much […]

While I think your primary source of information about anything medical should […]

Furthermore I am not a psychologist and I can not explain the emotional trauma delivered to children who aren’t breastfed. I am, however, a dad who cares deeply for the well being of […]
