It's the simple things

I use it almost every day.

I got this great tip from a family friend who is a nurse, before the Girl was born.

Maybe it is intuitive, but because someone told me about it, I'm not sure if I would have done it by instinct or not ...

Just in case ....

When you blow in a baby's face it triggers a swallowing reflex. The Girl chokes while she is feeding at least once a day (she is an eager little thing). Works like a charm.

It also works when you put medicine in their mouth to get them to swallow. Now ... if I could just get the whole dropper in there to begin with we might be on to something.
