  • It's been almost 23 yrs and I guess I would have to say to trust your instincts when it comes to your baby. If you feel something is not right, listen to your instinct, because more often than not, you will be right on target.

  • opinions are like buttholes.....everybody has one. Some of those opinions can even be backed up by some article found online or a book in the bookstore. What is most important is to do what works for your baby, you, and your family.
