Congratulations Mom! Your beautiful baby is one year old! You've made it through the trials and tribulations of conception, 40 or so weeks of pregnancy, birth and 52 weeks watching your beautiful baby grow and learn as he explores his world.
Perhaps you've nursed exclusively for a period of time. Some of you may have nursed exclusively for 6 months before you began introducing foods. Others may have continued for longer. If you have exclusively breast fed for the first year, you may be wondering what to do now that it's time for birthday cake. Will you have a cake made using breast milk? Will you go all organic? Will you skip the frosting and go with a carrot cake? Or will you just let him at it with the video camera ready to record all the messy, goopy happy times?
