Eatting Solid Food

My 14 month daughter does't care about eatting solid food. When I bring food to feed her, she never be happy. I have to play her favorite DVD, she will opens her mouth sometime.

Is This a Food Allergy

My daughter is 6 weeks old and has a "rash" on her face. It seems to come and go. After she feeds (Similac Advanced w/ Iron) it gets red. About 20 min later it's just bumpy. It started on her cheeks and is now on her eyebrows and ears and a little on the back of her neck. It is really rough feeling. My doctor said to put Aquaphor on it and keep a food diary to see if it's a food allergy. It's really not workng. We have a 8 week appointment in a week and a half. It's just bugging me.

Cereal or No Cereal?

Hello Ladies. Ok here's my problem...My new born son is 3 months old now. At birth he weighed 10lbs 3 oz, and he was last weighed in at 2 months at 12lbs.

He sleeps through the night misses his during the night feeding, so he is really good on that right now. He sits up with support and is rolling over.

When Is It Okay to Introduce Nuts, Eggs, Berries, Honey, Etc...

My husband and I have been very careful to not introduce high allergy-prone foods to our son. He was breast fed until 12 months. We started introducing some solids after six months. Now, at 14 months, I would like to introduce some foods such as berries and eggs, but am concerned that it might be too soon. Looking for advice or resource referrals from moms who have read up on food allergies. Thanks in advance!

What Was Your Major or Career?

I am 3 classes from getting my associates degree in general studies. Then, I will have to declare a major when I apply to a university. I know what I don't want to do (I am horrible at anything math related), but have no clue what I do want to do. I will get career counseling and take a personality test (myers briggs) to help me narrow it down. But I wanted to know *real world* experiences in the job field and if it relates to your major at all to give me some ideas, because I am stumped. So, if you feel like sharing. What did you major...

What Do I Feed Her?

Hello. My only child is turning 1 in a couple of weeks and I'm totally panicing about taking her off the bottle. I don't think actually taking her off is going to be a problem because she's deffinately not attached; but I have no idea what to feed her. She only has 5 teeth, all in the front of course, and I feel like I can only feed her so much yogurt and applesauce. I need to make sure she's getting the proper nutrience. Please someone, give me some ideas.

When to Begin Table Foods

My son is almost 9-months-old and I'm not sure when the best age to introduce table foods is and what foods to start with. He doesn't seem to even like the texture of the 3rd foods, let alone soft table foods. He eventually gets frustrated and cries. I end up giving him the baby foods that he will eat b/c I don't want him to go w/o eating for the night. I know it takes persistence, but I'm afraid he won't ever begin to like the foods that we eat. Any suggestions as to what age they should be eating more table foods and what are the best...
