My "babies" are all grown up, but it will be interesting to read about the answers so I can share it with friends with babies or who are expecting. :-)

I would have had a ton of questions when my baby was a newborn. I'll check in to read some of the questions & answers so I can share with others.

My babies are grown up too, but there will be more grandbabies, I'm sure. Why does there seem to be such an increase in the number of babies with swallowing difficulties? I know several who are having to use thickeners. Is it really an increase, or are we just able to identify it better? Also GERD in babies?

if the mom or dad have certain food allergies does that mean we should avoid feeding those to baby when they can have solids?
