This flour baby project has enlightnened me on adult life and parenting itself. Teaching me that having a baby is way more than just dressing him/her upon in cute clothes and playing around with the baby. I learned about the patience one has to have to take care of another human being. The expenses dedication and responsibilities one has to have and give up in order to raise a child. All the more reasons why teen pregnancy isn’t the best idea.
“He doesn’t know about this one or the one before.” Celia talking to Minny in the bathroom, after having a miscarriage.

As mothers, especially for the first time, our life are turned completely upside down. It can cause us to go through extreme crisis change. If is not treated the proper way, it can cause major problem on how our baby can develop cognitively and emotionally.

I generally don't recommend giving a newborn a pacifier, however, until nursing or bottle feeding is firmly established (which is approximately six weeks). If you give your baby a pacifier before then, it can often present nipple confusion and inhibit the baby's ability to suckle the breast or bottle properly. Also keep in mind that it should never be used as a "plug" to simply stick in your baby's mouth every time he whimpers. Crying is how babies communicate with us to say, "I'm hungry, tired or something is bothering me!" Pacifiers are a personal choice and if you choose to use one for your baby, there is nothing wrong with it.
