Q: How can I make sure I'm getting enough calcium in my diet?

A: To help promote healthy bones and teeth, it's a great idea to get your RDA of calcium (1,000 mg). Dairy products like milk, cheese, and yogurt are a solid start, but to guarantee you reach your goal, it's best to seek out other calcium-rich foods, too. Good sources include green leafy vegetables, beans, tofu, figs, and almonds. Or try calcium-fortified orange juice and cereals, as well as canned fish with bones, such as sardines and salmon. In addition, some of these foods also contain vitamin D, which helps promote calcium absorption.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
