Breaking the Rulz!

*Disclaimer, I'm not suggesting that you try my broken rules with your own children!* I thought it might be fun if we posted the 'parenting rules' that we break. I'll go first:
1) Children under the age of 2 should not have peanut butter.
DS (20 mo) lives on pb+h. He even licks the pb off the the bread and asks me to spread more on.

2) Young children should not eat grapes; they are a chocking hazard.
DS would be constipated if he didn't eat grapes and raisins. I do cut them in half to reduce the risk of choking.

*DD has slept on her tummy since 6 or 8 weeks old, and she slept much better because of it (until 5 months, then nothing has worked!!)

"Kids need whole milk after they stop breastfeeding or formula-feeding."

DD has not had one drop of any type of milk (cow, goat, soy, rice, etc). She is without a doubt the healthiest of my 3 kids. Go figure.

Me too! DS has slept on his tummy since he learned to roll over. And he loves popcorn.

Re: Breaking the Rulz!

lets see....I had 2 tummy sleepers, started PB early with all 3 (12-13 months) Shellfish and strawberries are favorites even before 1. I dont think I have ever cut a grape.

Re: Breaking the Rulz!

Oh this makes me feel so much better!

DD also has the pringle addiction. And drinks way too much apple juice.

DS sleeps on his tummy also.
