Re : Weight and Car seats

<t>Bethanie was only 13 pounds at 1 year old. I don't remember how old she was when we quit using the infant carrier but it was becasue of her length NOT her weight. I agree with D'Arcy, check your manual or with the manufacturer (or even the side of your carrier may say) what the length requirement...

Re : Family practice vs Pediatrician

<t>My girls see a family practice/internal medicine doctor. He also has training in pediatrics though but doesn't see alot of kids. When Bethanie was first coming home from the hospital I wanted him as her doctor because I was comfortable with him but my mom and dad both thought it was a bad idea si...

Re : How contagious in pneuomnia?

<t>Well Elianna was diagnosed on Monday with an upper respritory infection and a mild case of pneumonia (I would have FREAKED out if Bethanie, my preemie, had been any where near this sick at her age). This is the way I understand it...<br/> A virus is contagious but cannot be "killed" with antibiot...

The scariest moment of my entire life!!!

<r>We had a very, VERY scary thing happen on Saturday evening. We were down cleaning our church, Bethanie put a piece of hard candy in her mouth, started coughing and sucked the candy down her throat. She could just barely get any air at all. I patted her on the back, then beat her on the back, lean...

Re : How long did it take your preemie to hit 30lbs?

Bethanie is 5 and only weighs 33 pounds, 2 of which she has gained since starting school in August. She was almost 5 when she finally hit the 30 pound mark. She weighed 13 pounds on her first birthday, and 18 on her second. Caitlyn sounds like she is doing great to me!
