Jun 13th 2012 8:42AM I love this idea! I can't tell you how many times on vacation my son, when he was little, left something precious behind (although never on a plane). One time on a road trip to Canada we had to have his teddy bear shipped overnight from one hotel where he had left it behind to the next hotel on our itinerary. So look at the great lenghts parents will go to! Although a teenager now, my son still has his favorite teddy bear.
Apr 17th 2010 6:07PM Breast feeding your baby is a personal choice. The debate on breastfeeding benefits aside, I can tell you from personal experience it is one of the most bonding and loving experiences a woman (and women alone) can have with their baby. If a woman made an effort to breast feed and it didn't work out (for whatever reason), I applaude you for trying. For those women who choose not to (for whatever reason), it's their choice; it doesn't make them bad moms!
I have two children (17 & 12 now); both were breastfed. Neither children have gotten sick very often (maybe a handful of times in their lives) and neither of them have any allergies. Breastfeeding, good genetics, or what, who knows?
For those of you women out there struggling with the decision, I encourage you to at least try it; (if successful) it will be one of the best experience in your lives!
