What is the best way to share custody if parents live on different coasts?

Shared but unequal: Equality and fairness is not the goal. The best interest of the children must be the guiding principle. With that, the parents can work out the details, such as where kids should live, go to school, and vacation. Geographic distance makes travel more challenging. However, the fundamental challenges remain the same. Child rearing requires coordination between parents. Divorce does not change this. ...Read more

Any tricks to getting your baby to accept chunkier foods ?

Any tricks to getting your baby to accept chunkier foods ?

Why?: There is no need to rush foods that aren't smooth. Ensure that all foods are cut into easily managed, small pieces. Allow the baby to explore the food, and to feed him/herself under supervision. Babies explore by putting things in their mouths , and will eventually "get it". If they're too small for that, they're too small to be eating chunks anyway. Watch closely for choking hazards. ...Read more

It can be exciting and suspenseful, not knowing the baby's sex until the birth. Remember that prenatal ultrasounds were only started in the 1960's. For thousands of years, a baby's sex has been a wonderful surprise at birth! ...Read more

I'm 28 male, want to know how to increase the chances of getting a baby boy? Any solution? thank you!

No: About 6,000 women conceive baby boys in the U.S. every day. That's a big number, so one should not worry, and just give it a try. In normal couples, there's a 50% chance of having a boy with each pregnancy. Nature plans it this way to avoid excess males. China has a 15%, and India a 13%, excess in young males. There are not enough wives nor male-male couples to absorb the excess single males. ...Read more
