I really enjoy sharing with you all of the articles that I’ve read during the week. I feel like it gives you another glimpse into my mind.
First up is the New Carseat Recommendations from the AAP. Children should ride rear-facing until age 2, and in a booster until age 8.
I turned Kiah way too early. It was right around her first birthday. Ava stayed forward facing until she was about 2.3yrs old. Samuel will stay rear-facing as long as possible.
What do you think of these new guidelines? How long did you leave your child(ren) rear-facing?
Check out this very thourough blog post about preparing an older sibling for a new birth from Hobo Mama over at PhD in Parenting. It’s packed with a wide variety of books to read with your children about welcoming a new baby into the family. Ideas on a birth plan for your other children in case they do not wish to attend the birth. Go. Read. Share.
Also this sweet post from Small Things about The Wilson Oak.
This article on Patch about how breastfeeding is leaving this mom tired and she’s tired of it. Her son is 4 months old. I remember that 4 month mark well. Growth spurts, possible teething, they are changing so much and they nurse constantly.
A great post on Breastfeeding in Ghana from Silent, yet Leading
