I'm a bad mom:P
I gave Nolan his first sucker today. He loved it. The older kids had one and I felt so bad that he was left out. Now to clean up the mess!

BTW I'm just having a proud mommy moment he finally was able to use he straw sippy cup and he really likes it. It makes him feel so grown up I think. He has used the other sippies but he can't figure out how to tip it up for a drink so this works out perfect as he can do it on his own. He is getting so big. *sigh*

I t is so hard when the other kids can eat what they want. When he is older he will know what makes him sick and it will be easier.

Mom (Danie) to Adam (9-4-03) & Nate (3-7-07) Nate was diagnosed with silent AR at 2 months old. He was on neocate, prevacid 30mg per day and couldn't start solids till he was almost 8 months old. He started cow's milk at 14 months and is currently off all meds!! So far so good :) PIC: Disney trip 2008. Nate didn't know Piglet was there, he didn't like the characters too much.
NAte had his first sucker and it was messy!! He loved it. I remember Adam having one around Nolan's age. I think it is so fun to watch them eat it...they are so "into" it, lol

I gave Elyse her first sucker about a month ago. They give them out at the bank and I took one for her because we were going to the grocery store and I thought it could keep her occupied....well, she didn't eat it after the first couple licks and proceeded to wipe it all over her cart cover, then threw it on the floor. Yet she will eat sand and drink bathwater!
Check with your
doctor first!
