My husband wants a big family - he makes jokes about wanting 10 kids. Sometimes I don’t think he’s kidding. We have a 6 month old and I know he wants to get going with baby #2. We’ve been fortunate that our first is pretty easy going. However, she’s pretty dependent on sleeping with us - which we are actually okay with right now. I’ve heard that the first always tricks the parents into having m... More
So my LO is 15 months. He is a GREAT sleeper...on the regular he sleeps from 9:30p-9:30a. However...he’s teething right now with molars. Chewing on hands, drool everywhere & soaking bibs...& he’s been waking up early (between 4a-6a) for the past week. I give him Motrin before bed & seems to give relief for a bit. When he wakes up he won’t lay back in crib...I will let him sleep on m... More
I just had my LO three weeks ago, and for the last 3 days I’ve had some pain and sensitivity on my left ear and left side of the head. I read headaches are common postpartum, but I don’t know if this is normal. I’d hate to deal with arranging a doc appt and taking my baby to the doc where other people may be sick to only be told it’s just a common postpartum issue and to take Tylenol. Any one e... More
I recently purchased 4 Infant formula cans from amazon. Three of them came dented. I assume they were dented during shipment as there was no packing materials inside. Amazon sent me replacements cans and NOW THESE ARE DENTED TOO! I now have a collection or dented formula cans they are the 28+ oz size. I hate to see so much formula go to waste. Is there any harm is giving this to my baby? This f... More
I’m 26 weeks pregnant with #2 and already freaking out! The kiddos will be 21 months apart (I never planned to have kids this close in age). My daughter is such a pleasure I’m terrified about #2. I’m kinda freaking out about the adjustment of having 2 kids and could really use some ENCOURAGING words or advice in making the adjustment. Everything I read is horrifying 😫
Please shine some light for me. I seem to be losing it wondering how I’ll be able to take care of a toddler and a newborn. I’m exhausted. Does it get better, and when? I’ve seen other moms do this effortlessly. And I am amazed, and baffled. Tell me how to make this work.
LO is 6 mo. I’ve been BF since birth, she ended up hating bottles after 3mo. Of course I love that my baby is getting the benefits of my milk and it’s free. Win. I have great supply. Double win. Buuuut I hate... well hate is a strong word but I just don’t like that I have someone at my boob everyday multiple times a day. We’ve introduced solids but she’s ehhh about it. I try but don’t force her... More
He hasn’t had a REAL poop in 4 days. Just little hard nuggets a couple times a day. He’s super grumpy and uncomfortable and unbearable to take care of all day. For his comfort and my sanity PLEASE tell me what I can do. I’ve given him some white grape juice with every feeding and some constipation ease. It’s the weekend so we can’t go to the doc. HELP!!
My 6 month old is in a phase (hopefully) where he needs to be constantly entertained. He cries anytime I’m not paying attention to him, making it impossible to get anything done. I’ve tried just letting him cry and self sooth but nothing is working. Any advice? Or is this something I’m just going to have to wait out?
My son just turned 6 months old and at his check up his pediatrician suggested we start sleep training. A little back story- my baby has been a horrible sleeper since he was born. He’s wakes every 1-2 hours, he only falls asleep if my husband or I hold him, and sleeps in his pack n play next to our bed. I really don’t know how I feel moving him into his own room. I know eventually we have to do... More
