30% off Threadless Simpsons Shirts
Those of you who don’t already know, I am a HUGE Simpsons fan. I own pretty much every 6-inch vinyl figure Kidrobot has created from the series and I can quote pretty much any episode from Seasons 7 or 8, so it kind of sucks seeing a deal like this when you’ve got absolutely no cash in your bank account.
But for those who do have money for the holidays: Threadless is having a 30% off sale on all their shirts that aren’t already $10, which includes this huge batch of Simpsons tees. Personally, I’m a huge fan of Homer’s muumuu design, from the episode “King-Size Homer," in which homer makes himself fat to claim disability so he could work from home.
Cop a shirt today. Threadless' 30% off sale ends on December 6.

The first time a baby eats solids is a milestone both for the mother and child. I would like to believe that it is a milestone more for the mother than the child because it the beginning of getting your baby to wean off breast milk. It means a lot more sleep in the nights and fewer feeds during the day.
But what to feed the baby as first food is a question that boggles many mothers and Facebook groups are rife with questions on baby’s first food.
Before your start any food you must be sure your baby is ready for solids. Your baby should be able to hold up her head and sit upright at least with support. World-over doctors recommend exclusive breast feeding up to 6 months.
But if your doctor recommends that your baby needs more nutrition please go as per the doctor’s consultation. If in doubt don’t hesitate to take a second opinion too.
Some quick tips when feeding your baby for the first time
Be patient: This is the first time your baby is eating anything apart from milk. So give the baby time to adjust. Some babies take to solids quickly, others are slow to adopt
Morning time: Give your baby his first food in the mornings, so it is easy to observe reactions to the food and take action during the day. Evening time feeds can be done after he gets acquainted with the food and isn't showing any particular reaction to the food introduced.
Clean vessels: Make sure the vessels you use for your baby are properly cleaned and are free of sediments and deposits or even washing soap.
Always supervise: Make sure your baby is eating under adult supervision.
Most people feed rice meal as the baby’s first food but hey not all babies are rice eaters. My son, Aiden, did not approve of rice as his first food. I tried giving him rice in a diluted portion of breast milk and he did not like it.
So the next best thing that I knew that is easily digestible for babies is the avocado and that worked like a charm with Aiden.
The great thing about avocado is that it can be given to babies raw, no cooking required. Avocados are rich in omega-3s which are great for the brain. They have a mild flavor and texture which are ideal for babies. And they are almost not sweet, but at the same time tasty enough for babies to like.
Avocado isn't easily available with your corner fruit or vegetable vendor and you might need to go look for it. However it is worth the search.
Picking the right avocado
Look for those that have a firm texture but slightly ripe to touch. The color can be green or dark purple but that doesn't indicate ripeness. One part of avocado mixed with breast milk or formula can make about 250 ml of puree.
Wash and cut open the Avocado
Slice the avocado in the middle lengthwise around the seed or the pit. Use a spoon the remove the seed. Scoop the flesh out of each of the side with a spoon.
Mash the avocado
Mash the avocado with a fork in a bowl for older babies. For a six month old blend it smooth in a food processor. Use water or breast milk/ formula to achieve the right consistency.
Serve Avocado Puree
Babies like avocados alone. But when mixed with a banana it packs in all the goodness of omega 3 and potassium. Try not to refrigerate the avocado puree. Use it all at once.
For storing avocado, keep the seed pit in the fruit and place it in an air tight container or a cling wrap. Whole avocados aren't ideal for storing.
If the fruit is unripe, cut open, sprinkle a little lime, place the two halves back together and cover tightly with clear cling wrap before placing in the refrigerator. Cut, mashed or sliced avocados are best stored after sprinkling a little lime on it in an air tight container for up to a day.
When the baby gets older you might want to add honey to cow’s milk and avocado. This makes a very healthy dessert for the baby. Avocado is a great food to mix with egg yellows, ripe mangoes, bananas and orange juice. My son who is 14 months old now, enjoys it with honey and ripe mangoes.
