When your baby can sit up, steady and upright, it’s time for solid food, starting with rice cereal. What a good sign he’s growing! What a milestone!
Happy Holidays, Mom! The holidays are always draped with things to do and food preparation, but this holiday season create your own family tradition.

You will find your own way to create a holiday tradition and it will be forever remembered.
