...my great grandmother told me that back in the day they browned flour in a pan then cooled it off,stored it in a can for diaper rash...alittle messy...but it sure works...for thrush in the mouth or yeast rashes on the bum...rub with plain yogurt a couple times a day...i love home remedies!!...always take bottles/soothers away before a year old and it is much easier because any older than that they start to get more attached & don't forget as quickly...for soothers and bottles just cut the nipples off about half way and tell them it is broken...then it doesn't seem like you have taken it...they will just not enjoy it anymore ...(this worked for all 4 of my children) what are some of yours??

This is not advice, persay, but it's defiantly the best. My husband and I were out eating dinner and a woman came up and told us this: "You spend the first year of their life teaching them to walk and talk, and then spend the rest of your life telling them to sit down and shut up." This is very true.

maybe this is out of topic but i still remember an advice from my father which i think i will definitely pass to my son/daughter. one day, while driving me to school for my final examination, he said this just before he leave - 'if you can't do the best, just do what you can'. it's a simple advice but it's effected me a lot. it has teaches me that life isn't that difficult.
