  • Baby's First Thanksgiving. What's On The Menu?

    Thanksgiving is just around the corner. While you and your family are chowing down on turkey and all the fixings what will your new baby be eating for his or her very first Thanksgiving?

    Turns out, the Thanksgiving menu lends itself to some great, healthy food options for babies.

    The folks over at Parenting.com have put together list of baby food menu items for Thanksgiving that makes even our mouths water.

    Here are the highlights:

    Pureed sweet potatoes for babies as young as 6 months. Keep the milk and butter out, but instead add a dash of cinnamon or nutmeg. Older babies who are used to solid foods can have slices of steamed sweet potatoes. Same goes for russet potatoes, butternut squash and pumpkin.

    String beans cooked and cut into bite sized pieces are a tasty and healthy Thanksgiving option for babies.

    For babies who are eating solid foods, small bits of turkey are the perfect introduction to their first Thanksgiving holiday.

    While we suggest holding off on the pumpkin pie for a few years, a great sweet for ending baby’s first Thanksgiving meal is apples. Boiling apples to make them soft before running through a processor for a sweet, homemade apple sauce makes the perfect ending to the meal.

    Then, just wait for the tryptophan to set in and baby's first Thanksgiving will end in a blissful nap that will have mom and dad extremely thankful.

  • Winter Baby On the Way? Get Ready for an Early Crawler

    Despite winter officially being another month away, it’s getting darker earlier and the snow has already started to fly in certain parts of the country. All signs, winter is coming.

    If you are one of those who dreads the winter, there is a bit of good news for moms who are expecting to have winter babies.

    A new study out from the Journal of Reproductive and Infant Psychology reports that babies born in the winter start crawling, on average, five weeks sooner than babies who are born in the summer months.

    The reason? Their wardrobe. That’s right. According to authors of the report, the ability to crawl earlier than their counterparts has nothing to do with athletic ability or smarts, it simply boils down to seasonal outfits.

    The journal article says that babies born in the winter are ready to start crawling in the summer months and have the advantage of wearing less layers and less restrictive clothing. They also spend more time on the ground which gives them extra strength in their limbs and muscles. Summer days are also longer, making way for more time to play.

    Babies born in the summer months, by contrast, are often heavily bundled and found in the arms of caregivers at the 7 to 10 month-mark when most babies typically start crawling.

    The study classified “winter babies” as those born between December and May and “summer babies” as those between June and November.

    The winter or spring babies began crawling in an average of 30 weeks while the babies born in summer and fall began crawling at 35 weeks.

    So if you are due in the next few months, get ready to start baby proofing your house by early summer.
