  1. Your pictures remind me that I will definitely need a wrap for my next child. Wish I would have had one with Evan. What do you recommend or do you have any hand-me-downs??? :)

  2. On breastfeeding causing cavities: My current nursling is nearly two and has had 4 of her teeth come in with some amount of enamel missing. Her other teeth have come in just fine. We have been scrupulous about keeping those teeth clean. After her teeth are brushed at night, she is not allowed to have anything by mouth except for breast milk or water. While she did experience a small amount of decay in the damaged molars, the front teeth have remained healthy - even with night nursing.

    To me this seems like a huge testament to the safety of night nursing for baby's teeth.
