    I agree there's nothing wrong with formula feeding, but as breastfeeding is definitely healthier, I would strongly weigh the pros and cons.

    I called my grandparents Mimi and Pop. I only had one set.

    My daughter has three sets of grandparents. She doesn't speak yet, so this is what we refer to everyone:

    One suggest might be to lightly swaddle her in just a diaper, and then when you go to sleep, at midnight or so, tuck a lightweight blanket over her (being careful it can't go over her face).

    All your combos are lovely, but I'd avoid Acacia Lilac as it's heavy on the botanical names!

    I don't think so...the story isn't as well known as, say, Romeo and Juliet, and you won't always use the middle in daily life, anyway!

    I did feel that during pregnancy, but not until a bit later (maybe 15-20 weeks? I can't remember!)
