Now that H has two teeth, she needs a baby toothbrush. Unfortunately, I can never find one that isn't packaged with baby tooth and gum cleanser. I always throw the baby toothpaste away and use the brush by itself. Why? Look at the ingredients in Gerber Giggles and Grins Tooth and Gum Cleanser:
Glycerin , Xylitol, Sorbitol, Propylene Glycol, Pectin, Xanthan Gum, Colloidal Silicon Dioxide, Natural Apple Flavor, Natural Banana Flavor, Calcium Lactate, Lactoferrin - from Milk, Lysozyme - from Egg, Lactoperoxidase - from Milk
Egg? Milk? In a product labeled "for babies 3 months and older"? Nice, Gerber.
We watched Firewall last night. Three children = three years behind in movies. There's a really disturbing scene where the villain intentionally feeds the peanut-allergic son of the hero a cookie with peanuts in it. On the one hand, while it was hard to watch, I was glad to see a depiction of how serious an allergic reaction can be and to see the parents and sister frantically searching for one of the boy's EpiPens (the villain hid them). On the other hand, the son was supposed to be eight years old, but he let the villain (who was holding them hostage) read the package label to him, and he didn't refuse the cookie or ask to see the label himself. No dramatic scene if he did that, I guess.
