Of course, our journey into parenthood started rather abruptly with the premature birth of my daughter when I was 29 weeks 6 days along in my pregnancy. Needless to say, I was scared, overwhelmed and nervous about how this little peanut (she was 4lb 3.5oz born and at her smallest, 3lb 7oz) would thrive and grow. We were blessed with tons of support from friends and family, including my mom, who is a Registered Nurse, with experience in NICU care (thank you Lord!). One resource that I relied on heavily during both my pregnancies was Baby Center Canada
BabyCenter Canada is a wealth of information for expectant moms and their families. Whether you are in the process of trying to conceive, are pregnant (in any stage) or a parent already you will find information to make your life a little easier.
One of the things I used BabyCenter Canada for was to become aware of when to start feeding my daughter solid foods. Although a 10 week preemie, she was able to start foods at the normal 6 month mark, although we took things very slowly to ensure there were no issues. The only problems we encountered were with milk products. Babycenter was a huge help when dealing with this. Here is one article that I recently found that deals with milk intolerance versus milk allergy. Although this was not written when I was needing it, I am sure it will benefit many parents today.
A new feature to the BabyCenter Canada website is called Cheerios First Foods and it will be an invaluable resource for all you parents at this stage in your child's development. Along with great articles, there is also a few downloadable tools to track baby's first foods, as well as a couple other tools. You can check out Cheerios First Foods here.
