Mommy Loves Thrifting

This past Thursday, Mommy and Daddy went thrifting for toys. We found some great toys at great prices. I think my favorite score is giant bags of Mega Blox for three dollars. Man, I never knew how expensive those things are.

The Gelatin Experiment

While I was still pregnant with Maddy, I bought a book on games to play with babies. The other day, I was thumbing through it and came upon a game to play with jello. It is supposed to enhance their exploration skills. Now the book says the game is appropriate for three to six months; however, I was still concerned whether or not it was safe for her, because she is strictly breastfed and I will not introduce solids for at least another month. So I searched the internet for any information and yielded very disappointing results. In other words, I could not find a definitive answer on whether or not it was okay for her to play with this stuff. The next thing I did was to check out my books on infant nutrition. Yet again I was met with no information.

To be safe, I called my pediatrician's office and spoke to a nurse. She'd never heard of anything like it. The main concern she expressed was the sugar content of the jello. I told her that I was using unflavored gelatin (I am aware that one shouldn't give their baby any sweets/fruits until seven to eight months of age). The conclusion was it is okay as long as there was sugar.

Tim filmed the gelatin experiment and provided his profound wit as usual. Enjoy.
