We knew that newborns didn't sleep for long periods of time, but we were concerned about how much pain our son seemed to have. He was diagnosed with reflux and a dairy intolerance when he was about 7 weeks old.

Tween Nutritional Requirements

Fact

You cannot know how much your tween needs to eat on any given day because growth patterns differ tremendously from child to child and from one day to the next. While some tweens grow in a slow-but-steady fashion, others alternate between long lulls and dramatic spurts. If you think your child has grown overnight, you may be right.

Before Breakfast

"Where's Papa going with that ax?" said Fern to her mother as they were setting the table for breakfast.

"Out to the hoghouse," replied Mrs. Arable. "Some pigs were born last night."

"I don't see why he needs an ax," continued Fern, who was only eight. "Well," said her mother, "one of the pigs is a runt. It's very small and weak, and it will never amount to anything. So your father has decided to do away with it."
