I think it's because the Baby-Boomer generation was really pushed into formula feeding! It was relatively new and really strongly marketed back in their day. It was supposed to give Mom all this freedom not having to have her baby attached to her boob 24/7, and many doctors actually believed it was better than BM because they were packed with known nutrients, whereas the nutritional content of BM was mostly a mystery.

Elena- Your daughter could be ready to potty train. The girl that watches David her daughter is about to turn 2 and she is fully potty trained (except at night sometimes but I heard that can take years ). I was actually surprised that she was potty trained that early as most people I know their kids are at least 2.5 before they are. I am pretty sure David will be later as I heard it takes boys longer unless that is a myth but we will see. I am not going to even start trying probably until he is at least 18 months closer to 2 unless he shows an indication he is ready before then.

Mari - Barrett pretty much refused to walk on his own until 16 months (a little after 15 months he would take 5-10 steps across a room from one person to another as long as there was much cheering going on for his accomplishment!).

Liz--I'm glad that you and the LC were able to come up with such a great plan.

Some personals... My apologies for those I didn't answer to!

CASSIE- I'm on the same boat about the NPP thing... I suppose deep down it's just that we want another one, you know?
SANDY- I'm so glad your DH is on the same page as you about the second child!
BRITA- I'm sorry about barret's infections... Is he better now??
CHRISTINE- Selin sounds os cute! Fede is also talking a lot in his own "language"... He points and asks and makes loud exclamations... he's just not forming words yet
RUBY- How was the trip??? I'm so jealous!!!
LIZ- Oh... my... gosh.... Your MIL is a demon!!!! Seriously we all have issues with our in-laws now and again, but she is absolutely crazy!!!!! I agree with Ruby, I would have totally lost it by now!!!! BTW... awesome about the KY jelly!!! LOL!!!! I agree with what one of the ladies in the other board said... It could be good if she went with you to the LC and asked all those stupid questions herself. I guess if someone other than her son and DIL tell her, she'll have no viable reasons to keep her position. I'm glad you have a plan for the supply issues.
CHERYL- 31 weeks!!! it's so fast!!

Well, you certainly have a great point!
I suppose that since everyone keeps asking "does he walk yet?" I'm starting to think that there is something wrong and he should be walking by now!!
But it's rtue that it would be exhausting to be running after him when he still doesn't understand some od the stuff I tell him.

Ray was a "late" walker as well. And it does get tiresome hearing people ask "does he, why isn't he, etc walking yet". He had this little cart thingy that he used to walk/push around all over the place... we got it for his 1st birthday and he loved it. He took his first independent steps around 15/16 months... actually he more broke into a run than anything.

I always saw it as part of his temperament and still do... he's just not a kid who takes risks. His bike riding skills are also behind his peers, but not so much for a lack of trying or skill, but more because he just doesn't want to get hurt.

(He also never climbed on things, etc.)

Fede will be walking in no time... when you lease expect it.

Just have to pop in and say that I don't think there is anything wrong with Fede not walking yet!! I mean clearly he will and a few months of him not being able to get into as much trouble can't be a bad thing:D

I have to say I wouldn't mind if Teddy would be a bit more cautious like Kate said Ray was/is. I mean right now he has three bruises on his head and a faded black eye!! He constantly is trying to do things which are beyond his abilities- tried to climb up onto all of our dressers/chairs/kitchen counters- and is constantly falling and hitting his head in multiple ways (one of his favs is slamming dresser drawers open and closed and I would say his face gets in the way about 30% of the time -sigh- the worst is even if it hurts enough for him to cry which is barely never, he takes a 30 second break and then wants to go right back to it!!) it is nerve wracking and frustrating. On the one hand we feel terrible when he falls but he seems to be only interested in trying to do the most dangerous things possible!

I have heard that "late" walkers are much better at it and are able to walk well from the begining which would be a big plus:)
