Hi all! So my 8 month old LO is constantly flipping onto his belly while in the crib. He sleeps with his arm and legs tucked under him. We have learned to just let him be as that is how he wants to sleep, but the constant wetness in the morning is killing me. What we think is happening is he fills his diaper but the weight of his body is squishing the pee and leaking out the top of his diaper.... More
My 10mo daughter stays home all day with her nanny from 8-5:30 every day five days a week. The only outing is an hour at the playground. I am wondering what other nannies/parents are doing with their babies around my daughter’s age. I am just worried that I am dumming down my daughter or something by having her just stay with her nanny at home all day. Are there any classes to suggest taki... More
Our LO is 13 months and has turned into what I can only describe as a tiny demon lately when we change her diaper. She used to sit quietly and not mind anything at all. As she got bigger we *might* need to sing a song or hand her a toy, but generally she never even attempt to roll over. FF to now? She is literally trying to climb us to avoid putting on the fresh diaper. She hasn’t had any ... More
My MIL triggered me during my maternity leave when I asked to hold my baby (I let her/she took my baby from me as soon as I was done nursing) and the look on her face said it all. Her face said “wait, what? You want to hold your own child? How dare you ask that”. Before I even married my husband, she said multiple times “I’m going to spoil your child so much they won’t want to go home with you... More
My 9 month old started full time daycare mid-May. Since then I've seen some worrying things when I've come to pick him up. There were the scratches on his face a few times when I picked him up from daycare - nothing huge, but the scratches were almost touching his eye, that's how close they got. Another time there was an ink stain on his pants. The staff said nothing at every instan... More
So tonight my husband went to his dads house to have dinner, i ended up staying home since i wasn’t feeling too great. I told him to take our daughter with him since I know my FIL loves to see her. So about an hour and a half they come back home and i ask him how dinner was. He says it was great! And that his grandma was there as well. He also mentioned that they gave our daughter those yogurt ... More
I was induced so that I could have my baby early due to my SO being diagnosed with cancer. I wanted to make sure that he was there for the delivery of our baby girl. But my milk supply hasn’t produced much yet and my baby girl isn’t eating a lot. Is there anything I can take or eat so that I can produce more milk?
My LO turns 1 the end of the month!! Right now our feeding schedule is as follows: 730am breakfast 930am 8oz bottle formula 12pm lunch 2/230pm 8oz bottle formula 430/5pm dinner 730pm 8oz bottle formula Maybe 1 or 2 small snacks in there somewhere Should I continue this same pattern when she turns one but instead of an 8oz bottle of formula make it 5oz bottle of cows milk? Thanks!
My very well sleep trained baby got sick last month and was sick on and off for the entire month. He wouldn’t sleep in his own bed so he just slept with us for a month. For the last two weeks or so he will go down for the night, but wake up around 5 and be hungry and then not want to go back in his crib. Does anyone have any advice on how to get him sleeping in his own crib through the night ag... More
Has anyone else’s child done this? Normally she’ll just yell or growl when she’s playing but lately she’s just been doing this ear deafening scream/shriek. She’s too little to understand ‘inside voices’ so I’m at a loss, she’ll get so loud to the point where it gives me a migraine and I have no clue what to do. I’m hoping it’s just a phase but it’s been going on for over a month now.
We’re about a week and a half into sleep training our almost 5 month old. By the second night she was sleeping all night except waking up once or twice to eat. Now suddenly the last two nights she’s waking up constantly wanting to eat and after she eats a couple ounces and I lay her back down she’s awake again in a few minutes screaming. I have to feed her more to get her to settle and stay asl... More
My son who is couple days shy of being 11 months, is going into surgery tomorrow morning at 8am to get ear tubes. I know it is a simple procedure but I’m still a mom and my stress/anxiety have been off the charts! More so I’m worried about night feedings. He is not allowed to have anything after 12am. He’s a big boy and food is no joke to him so I pray to God it goes well and he isn’t so hungry... More
