When is the right time to cut your baby's hair for the first time?
I've heard from a Nun that you have to wait until after one year because if you don't the magic that is inside a baby's head will be deactivated. I've also heard from our fantastic Hairdresser, who has already trimmed Rory's hair twice, that it doesn't really matter because your hair will be what it is no matter what you do. She also says that in some Asian cultures babies get their heads shaved at 4 months and they still have full thick hair. So what do you think?
How Much Blood is Too Much Blood:
When is it appropriate to freak out when your baby's lip is gushing blood?
"Oh my gosh!" I scream. "Did you see that?"
"Yes," Kim says calmly as the baby literally screams bloody murder! Well, murder of the lip.
"He just fell over like a freaking tree! OH MY GOSH! HIS LIP IS GUSHING BLOOD!"
"Umm, settle down," Kim says. "It's barely any blood."
"IT'S SOAKING THE WHOLE PAPER TOWEL! IT'S ON HIS FACE! IT'S ON HIS CHEEK! IT'S ON MY HAND! WILL YOU STOP STANDING THERE AND HELP ME!"
"I am helping! But settle! People bump their lips. It's not a big deal."
"AHHH! IT WON'T STOP!"
So what would you do if you saw all that blood? Freak out or remain calm?
Will The Baby Be Riding Dirty:
Will the baby cry the whole time on our massive road trip?
So we're taking a big road trip this summer and we just have no clue how it's going to go. Rory's 10 months, going on 11. He is a good baby and usually goes right into Zen mode in the car, but we are talking thousands after thousands of miles. Can a baby really handle the drive and chill out or will he be screaming his head off? When should we leave? Bed time? Break of day? So many questions? What are your experiences?
When does your dog and your baby start working together against you?
I've heard so many differing theories on babies and dogs but so far Rory and Bella are the best of friends, just like the classic Disney Duo, Tod and Copper. (Am I watching too much Disney these days? I doubt it.) Anyway some people just don't think babies and dogs mix. Others say there's nothing better. Now Rory has been known to feed some of his puffs to the dog and the dog does an excellent job cleaning his face after meals. At times it seems the two of them seem to have conversations together. Should I be worried with this symbiotic relationship or will it all work out for the best?
He's a Shoe In:
Do babies really need to wear shoes when they learn to walk so they don't become clubfooted?
My mother thinks that Rory is going to be a clubfoot because we let him walk around without shoes. She swears that only shoes will save his sole! I stand firm that only Jesus can do that. So we don't make him wear shoes. But, I do suppose there will be a time that he has to learn how to walk in shoes because I mean he has to go to school someday and or walk around at Disney World, so what's your take? Please don't let the cat get you're tongue. What do you think?
Seriously Where Are The Rabbits Hiding:
How many times can a baby rabbit poop in a day?
That's pretty much it. I just want to know how many rabbits are in your baby's diaper? The other day I had to change 8 rabbit poops. I think one an hour. Really was annoying, mostly because they reek.
When is the right time to take the Binky away? IE, pacifier, paci, plug, monkeybutt, froglegger, plastic shish-kabob.
As you know, my wife thinks he NEVER should have been allowed to have a binky but I think its great. But if you've read any of my other entries you already know my take on binkies. I want to know what you think. When is the right time to take it away?
