It’s not easy to sift through all the wishy-washy advice from the pediatrician, the Internet, and your in-laws on what your kid needs.
Until you gain the gift of baby telepathy, try local astrologer Dabney Oliver. Just tell her the time and place of your child’s birth, and she’ll give you a glimpse into the little one’s gifts and talents.
Carrying around Cancers? Baby slings help them feel more at ease. Got a few Geminis? Books and games keep them out of trouble.
Mom and baby feel like their match is made in heaven.
Or at least in the stars.
