The Parents Guide to baby-led weaning By Jennifer House Review


Answers all the “whys” and “hows” when it comes to baby-led weaning.

Baby-led weaning means starting your baby on real table food from the start (at about 6 months old, depending on your baby) and skipping the purée stage completely. This means offering babies a selection of nutritious finger foods so they feel like they’re joining in on family meals. Baby-led weaning is especially popular with second children and beyond, because they’re so keen to mimic their older siblings.

Baby-led weaning supports a baby’s motor development skills at an earlier age and can lead to healthier eating habits and body weights. Often, finger foods are more nutritious than purées.
Jennifer addresses all the questions hesitant parents may have and provides 125 nutritious recipes that will be enjoyed by baby and the entire family.

Topics include:

• Tips for getting started with baby-led weaning, including signs of readiness
• Information on safe foods and progressing food sizes as your baby develops
• Strategies for dealing with food allergies
• Advice for vegetarian families
• Guidelines for modifying family meals
All the information a parent needs is right here in this indispensable how-to guide.

Celebrate your Grandpa September 10th with Dove Men+Care


This Sunday, September 10th marks National Grandparents Day, a day to acknowledge and celebrate the care and love that all grandparents in our lives have passed down to us and our kids.
 To demonstrate how a grandparent’s care truly makes an impact on future generations, Dove Men+Care is unveiling new research that shines a light on the emotional impacts grooming has on men today.

According to the new research, men today feel nostalgic when talking to their kids about grooming and hygiene habits, as it reminds them of when their parents taught them – and furthermore, dads see having a good grooming routine as a way to be a good role model.


8 in 10 dads feel when they talk to their kids about grooming, they are reminded of when their parents passed down personal care advice

9 in 10 (92%) dads see maintaining good hygiene and grooming as a way to be a good role model for their children.

Dove Men+Care is a great way to give care back to grandpa this year and it is very affordable.

  Perfectly You by Robin Daniels Ivy Nixon is the student body Vice President at Franklin High School. Each year, the school holds a date auction to raise funds for the senior class graduation party, and this year, Ivy’s in charge. Planning the event is a huge task and Ivy is determined to prove she can get the job done right. Unfortunately, she’s still one participant short and her deadline is looming. Andy Walker, her cute but socially reclusive art class table mate, is her last resort. He may not be popular, but he’s funny, talented, and full of surprises. With a makeover and some major social marketing, Ivy is sure he could fetch a decent price at the auction. Andy reluctantly agrees to help, but the more time Ivy spends with him, the more her feelings shift from professional to romantic in nature. To top it off, she’s done her marketing so well, that other girls are starting to notice Andy too. Come auction time, will Ivy be able to let him go to the highest bidder? Or will she find a way to keep him for herself…

 Content Description: This is a stand-alone YA contemporary romance with companion novels set at the same high school. It contains minor language, innuendo, and crude humor, some steamy kissing, a party scene where underage drinking is taking place, and a brief but tasteful conversation about sex. The author has attempted to write characters who make good choices in questionable situations, in effort to keep the content appropriate for teens. This book contains no sex, written or implied, and no explicit language. Recommended for ages 14 and up. Author Robin Daniels Robin Daniels is a wife, mother of five and avid consumer of books. She loves reading SO much that she was actually grounded from it as a twelve year old. No Joking! Her mom caught her reading when she was supposed to be cleaning, which was a common occurrence. At that point mom took the books and instructed her to go watch TV or play outside like a normal kid. Robin is a sucker for home design shows and magazines, watches way too much Netflix and has a very codependent relationship with with a certain diet soda who’s brand shall not be named. (Though anyone with a similar problem could probably guess which one.)
