    Thanks for these links. I’m expecting my 3rd baby next month and I’ve been reading up on all areas of baby care… seriously, there is so much I’ve forgotten in 3 years! I’d also like to share a resource that I have recently found to be helpful: this Mom’s Guide to caring for little teeth. Good info from infancy through teenager years.
