Babywearing blogger & raspberries

My blog is officially now on the blogroll of babywearers - you can also see the widget at the side of my blog. Thanks to Stephanie @ Adventures in Babywearing. It is nice to connect with other people who have similar views to yourself in child rearing ad so share experiences as well as info. In fact I got some questions which I hope someone can help me with.





My 3 and a half month young man has as of 3 days ago, started wanting my breast as a pacifier to sleep, refuses the bottle (had been giving him breastmilk in a bottle once a day for over a month with no problems) and sometimes he cries non stop when I leave him in the care of my husband or other family member. Any help on what I can do to remedy these situations? Just in case it does make a difference, he is already teething and although hasn't had much pain in the last week, his saliva faucet is on big time! Could the first two be due to his teething and is there something I can do? Also read about stranger anxiety, which I thought could be what is also happening but they say that happens aroung 6-7 months.....your views are most appreciated.

About 2 days ago I said I'd post a raspberry tart recipe....well I didn't do the tart, I did a cake which tastes great so here is how to make it and a pic.



1/3 Cup butter
1 Cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 Cup flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 Cup milk
2 Cup fresh raspberries ( used frozen variety but thawed)
Cream butter and sugar. Add well beaten egg and vanilla( I didn't have vanilla but the taste came very good anyway). Add dry ingredients alternating with milk, beating just enough to keep batter smooth. Pour into greased and floured 7 1/2 x 11 inch pan and spread or sprinkle raspberries on top. Bake at 375°F. 35 to 40 minutes. Drizzle with vanilla icing while warm(which I didn't do either)

Icing: 2 Cups of icing sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, enough milk to make a thin icing. Mix icing sugar and vanilla and mix in enough milk to make a thin icing.
