My babies aren't quite one yet, and they've eaten baked goods, egg whites, and peanut butter. (That last one was an accident, I assure you).
If I know they are well-fed and have a clean diaper, and it's nap time, I will let them whine in their cribs. At least for a little while.
I let them play with the phone. The fake phone won't do. They've already placed two calls.
If Gavin fusses in the middle of the night, but he's still mostly asleep, and his diaper has only leaked a little, I won't change it until he really wakes up.
I let the babies chew on tubes of creams and lotions (with a watchful eye). They love this, but my mother-in-law thinks it's beyond disgusting.
