As a new gramma, I have noticed a return to natural - meaning, no soothers (unless they absolutely have to) as they seem to be looked at like a failure for not nurturing your child enough. Cloth diapers are making a big come back, but not like ours that we had to fold, they are so wonderful! No store bought baby foods, only homemade. I also was asked to make them homemade wipes out of flannel, they don't like the chemicals used in the store bought ones.

"No tv for my kid" is another - which I think is great. (I confess, I put mine in front of the tv so I could have some peace and quiet now and then.)

I wish the new parents all the best!
We all get heavier as we get older,
because there's a lot more information in our heads.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Don't get your knickers in a knot It makes you walk funny!
