First Time Mom Help

Okay moms, my BF Shanna needs help planning for her new little guy who is coming soon.

Here on her personal blog she pleads for help. She wants to know what a FIRST TIME MOM needs. (We all remember how it felt to become a mom-so pitch in ladies.)

I know that we did this question before but I'm sure you've thought of things to add to our list.

HERE is the link to the last time I posted this question.

Hitting, Bottles, and Walking?

Darling and may I say nearly perfect Lindsey needs your advice with three questions.

#1- My daughter likes to swing her arms and hit us. Sometimes she does it when she doesn't like something but sometimes I know she doesn't mean it. I feel like she is so young to be doing this. How do I teach my 14 month old not to hit?

#2- I know I don't need to take her off a bottle completely yet because she is 14 months and was a preemie. She usually has 3 bottles a day and takes about 4-5oz with each bottle. And all of them are before naps and bedtime. She likes using a sippy cup but she loves her bottle. I asked her doctor at her 1yr appointment and she said not to worry about it yet. When should I worry about it and start transitiong from 3 bottles to 2 and so on and how do I transition?

#3- My daughter was 8 weeks premature and so there are some things that have taken her a little bit longer to do. I haven't worried at all about it because she is very active and happy. She will walk across furniture and with the help of a little toy train will walk across the room. All of the walking usually is done on her tippy toes. We try to get her to walk from dad to me (a very very short distance) but she just sort of falls and seems to have no desire to walk on her own yet. I guess I just want to know if anyone has been in the same boat or any advice on the matter?. How do I help my daughter feel comfortable walking on her own and how can I make it easier for her?

Tricks To Get Your Child To Eat Veggies

How do you get your toddler to eat VEGETABLES?

Hallie refuses to eat any veggies. We try to sneak a little bit in but she just spits it out. Is this a normal stage for toddlers? What do you do to make sure your baby is getting the proper nutrition?
