I know I'm going to get a variety of responses here - but, did anyone experience upper back pain (between the shoulder blades) and/or weakness or aches in the knees and legs (like, when you bend down or get up from being in one position for a while) weeks after delivery? Do I just chalk it up to my body trying to snap back to its pre-pregnancy state? Just need to know if this is normal or if I should make an appointment with a chiropractor.
my five month old has this rash on her forehead. any ideas on what it could be??? looks pretty threatening to me. I'm worried it could be herpes from ppl touching her face :( it's been there a week. it's pretty much remained unchanged all this time until this morning. now it appears a bit more red and covering a bit more area. tiny white and flesh colored bumps. I'm so worried. I put a thin layer of aveeno hydrocortisone on it this morning. this evening she keeps touching her forehead like it's itching her. I haven't applied anything else.
Okay new mommy here, my baby boy is about to be 5 months old and he’s 20 lbs lol. So I need a new car seat for him because his shoulders are getting squished together and his feet are just about to hang over. Do y’all have any recommendations for me? I really have no idea I have no mom friends lol thank you!!
My 14 month old has been an incredibly picky eater lately (1 month or so) with solid food, especially the HEALTHY things. He won’t even TRY them before swatting it away, closing his mouth and shaking his head. He will only eat snacks and carbs willingly - cheerios, puffs, animal crackers, bread, waffles, etc. He eats the puréed pouches but it’s been so tough trying to get him to anything remotely good for him. We’ve tried meatballs, pasta, chicken nuggets, veggie burgers, steamed veggies, you name it. At one point in time he has eaten these things but a second or third time around he won’t even attempt them. He does okay with fruit but just the simple banana or melon, which it okay with me for now. I am not sure how else to approach getting him to even TASTE the food before swatting it ... More

My baby boy has to start school next week at 16weeksold. Unfortunately, that's the latest start date due to the ending of my maternity leave and no family members who can take care of him. An advice for those who started their babies this young? How did their sleeping patterns change?
Please keep any negative or harsh comments to yourself. My almost two year old will NOT drink milk out of a cup or a sippy, at all!! He says it's "eww" or "hot" (which everything that he's absolutely not touching is "hot"). Butttt bc I know milk is good for him and I want him to have it, I still put milk in a bottle for him. I know this is not good but I've tried everything!! Tricking him, explaining it to him, pouring it from the bottle to a cup so he can see it's the same. He's just not having it, any advice?
Why is my two week old always wide awake at night? I was told that she’s supposed to be sleeping most of the time. Though this is the case during the day, she wakes up for a feeding at around 9pm and stay up sometimes till 12am. That’s almost 3 hours! She’s not crying or anything just wide awake! Can anyone relate to this??? Is this normal???
My 8 month old has just declared war on solids. He had a bad cough and so started detesting solids. Now the cough is gone but he refuses to eat. I know breastmilk is enough but there will come a day when it isn't and what will I do then? It wasn't like he was eating burgers and noodles. He was eating pureed avacado, sweet potato, carrots and oats. I don't know what to do. I keep offering, he keeps denying. I tried baby led weaning. He takes each piece of his meal and systematically drops it on the floor while looking at me. HELP!
Any twin parents on here? I have boy/girl twins that are 19 days old today! Any tips, suggestions, fun facts? Everyone said get them on the same feeding schedule it will make life easier. But so far it seems harder. Especially at night. I don’t make dad stay up with us because they’re exclusively breast fed. No sense in us both being dead tired. I guess I was cocky when I was pregnant saying I wasn’t scared for the infant stage... I was scared for when they were toddlers and into everything. lol welllll boy was I wrong. This is a whole new level...
