The first minute after birth our physician wanted to give our baby a shot of vitamin K. We declined. Supposedly all babies (in Sweden) get that. During the first year they will give several shots of vaccine. Our baby got her first shots and cried... (more)

Somehow training babies not to cry when parents aren't around doesn't seem very Paleo. Thoughts? Any insight on what the implications of this practice might be?

bi-phasic is common among humans (http://www.marksdailyapple.com/biphasic-sleep/) but it has to be natural for it to be beneficial. Get the sleep while you can, in 6-98 weeks you will be past this stage!

I don't know that it makes a huge difference, so I would make that decision based on which you have more readily available to you at the highest quality. This is of course assuming that your baby tolerates cow dairy, and it may be worth it to get... (more)

As long as the bone is safe like a knuckle bone and not sharp or too small I think a bone is a good 'teething ring' with great flavour. I'd just monitor the baby while the bone was being chewed.
