Food Ideas for My 11 Month Old

I am not much of a cook and since becoming a new mom, I am slowly learning. Unfortunately I think I've repeated a lot of food to my son and I think he's become bored with him. I really think especially with breakfast. I used to do pancakes and cereal but I don't think he's interested that much in it. So I was hoping people would share their ideas for breakfast, lunch and even dinner ideas with me. Even if there's a book you think I should check out, I'd love to hear it. I am really open to just about anything just so that I can expand...

He doesn't seem to have problems digesting dairy, and he drinks his milk much better at day care since its what all the other kids are doing. He loves cheese, but has constipation issues, so supplementing with cheese alone is out. We mix Carnation Instant Breakfast in with...

3 Year Old Boy Is Afraid of Animals and Characters

My three-year-old boy is terrified of most animals and anyone dressed up as a character. He's never been bitten, scratched, growled at, or jumped on by any animal. We have a cat that he does pet, but he runs screaming from my sister's. We had two shelties when he was born, which have since passed from old-age, but he was even scared of them. We did keep them behind a gate inside and in a kennel when outside to eliminate any risk of accidental toe stepping. Even our neighbor's tiny pug sends him screaming for the door. We have tried to...
