4 month old baby and rice cereal?
Health experts and breastfeeding experts agree that it's best to wait until your baby is around six months old before offering solid foods. There has been a large amount of research on this in the recent past, and most health organizations have updated their recommendations to agree with current research. Unfortunately, many health care providers are not up to date in what they're telling parents, and many, many books are not up to date.
The following organizations recommend that all babies be exclusively breastfed (no cereal, juice or any other foods) or formula fed if need be for the first 6 months of life (notthe first 4-6 months):
World Health Organization
US Department of Health & Human Services
American Academy of Pediatrics
American Academy of Family Physicians
American Dietetic Association
Australian National Health and Medical Research Council
Royal Australian College of General Practitioners
Most babies will become developmentally and physiologically ready to eat solids by 6-9 months of age. For some babies, delaying solids longer than six months can be a good thing; for example, some doctors may recommend delaying solids for 12 months if there is a family history of allergies.
Delaying solids gives baby greater protection from illness.
Delaying solids gives baby's digestive system time to mature.
Delaying solids decreases the risk of food allergies.
'Delaying solids helps to protect baby from future obesity.
Delaying solids makes starting solids easier.
Babies who start solids later can feed themselves and are not as likely to have allergic reactions to foods.
Where can I use online printed coupons?
I'll give everyone some "REALISTIC" couponing tips, but first... a "WHAT the @#$%^&*" MOMENT... I was in the grocery line the other day in front a young gal with 2 kids. She had a basket- full, (healthy food choices + diapers.) As we chatted she told me how embarrassed she was to ave to use Food Stamps while she was putting her life back together as a single Mom. She saw all my coupons, I told her how much I calculated I'd save on my 2 baskets, (including diapers for the Grand kids.) I was SHOCKED when she told me she couldn't use coupons or her store savings card with Food Stamps???!!! I don't get that at all!! Has anyone else heard that?! My Retail Total: $629.72. After coupons, savings card, extra-bucks from last trip, Final Total: $229.46. I had 3x as much, waited to see her, Food Stamp Total: $489.26. Anyway, back to your question. Some couponing depends on your location. Manufacturer's newspaper coupons are National & can be used at most Grocery/ Box Stores. Some stores don't take online printed coupons. Never had a problem in Houston. Some stores limit the number of coupons for same item per visit, ie; can't use 40 coupons for 40 jars of pasta sauce thus clearing the entire shelf in one swoop. I've been a successful couponer for a long time, (worked, raised 2 kids, fed their teenage entourage, now help with Grand kids.) I don't have 70 extra hrs. a week, don't get $650. in groceries for $5.99 or have a converted "stockpile" garage. I do consistently save about 60%, have 2 shelf units in my utility room, have extra to give to the church and military before expiration. Here's my "Common Sense" Tips everyone can do:
1. ALWAYS look at the items' "unit price." Between name-brands it's often more expensive even with the coupon.
2. Never buy anything w/ a coupon you'd not normally buy. Many are designed to try introductory products & have a less expensive alternative w/out coupon.
3. In turn try not to buy retail if there's a coupon for items you buy regularly.
4. Dollar store "per unit" pricing isn't always the best deal./ Warehouse store "per unit" pricing isn't always the best deal. Do your math.
5. 10 for $10 doesn't mean you have to buy 10. Buy 1 get one free depends on price of first item. Sometimes it's less to buy 2 of a similar item. Generic isn't always the best price, but will always be the worst quality. Look at VALUE for the dollar. I feed $1 bread to my ducks.
6. Do one major shop month end, exceptt perishables,) you'll have 4 weeks of coupons saved. Plan out menus, to avoid impulse buys. Buy Value packs of meat divide into single servings @ home & freeze.
7. ALWAYS usein-storee savings card. Most now have online digital coupons you load directly on card that combine w/ paper coupons @ checkout. Go on double or triple coupon day. Checkin-storee circular for extra coupons & freebies. Kroger gives a $25.00 gift card (1per week) to transfer a prescription & they price match.
8. Only stockpile items w/ a LONG shelf life, (canned goods,TP, Paper towels, cleaning..) Expired food is $ in the trash.
9. E-mail manufacturers, tell them how like their products, give your address and they'll start mailing you coupons, samples & freebies.
Know this was long but hope it helps. Happy Hunting & Good Luck! Let me know how you make out!
