Marvel's BLACK PANTHER - Now Playing in Theaters Everywhere

The wait is over and I am so excited to say that Marvel’s BLACK PANTHER is now playing in theatres everywhere! Trust me when I say that you don’t want to be left out of the conversation so go see this movie!


Marvel Studios’ BLACK PANTHER follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.

In celebration of Marvel’s BLACK PANTHER opening, check out this awesome clip from the film:

Keeping Track of a Breastfed Baby's Weight with EatSmart Scales

My son was diagnosed borderline anemic when he was about a year old. You would have never guessed it because he was such a chunky baby, but he was actually always in the 25 percentile for baby boys the same age. When my daughter was a baby, she was in the same percentile, but was never diagnosed with any issues. They both had lip tie.


My son was always so hungry. I had to start supplementing with formula when he was about eight months old. He had no interest in baby food and he would choke on many table foods we offered, so nursing was his main source of nutrition. My doctor's advice to combat his anemia was to just feed him whenever/whatever he wanted (which of course I was already doing) and then he was prescribed iron supplements. His anemia was an issue for a while and so I started keeping track of his weight to make sure he wasn't losing any.
