I would like no screen time for my current 16 month old. However we do show her videos and photos of herself on our phones, sometimes she watches us on our phones, sometimes we turn on the news/Netflix in the background while we play/lie in bed waiting for her to fall asleep. I am really strict with screen time. Especially involving other people that aren’t her parents. I don’t want them bein... More
My 2-year-old daughter loves going outside. Today, when it started snowing, she got really excited to go out, but the minute I went to get dressed for it, she got upset. I let her go out in sneakers and fleece jacket, but she refused to wear a hat and kept pulling my hat off of me. I brought her inside and told her she needed to wear boots and a hat. She's been melting down since. All shoes... More
Is there a product that helps with diaper rash pain, maybe a diaper rash cream that also soothes or reduces the pain? Or a technique to change diapers while minimizing pain associated with diaper rash? When my son’s diaper rash gets really bad, changing diapers is a traumatic experience for him. At its worst there can be deep redness and bleeding. Opening the used diaper and using wipes sends... More
My 10 month old daughter always seems cold at night. I dress her in a fleece pajama with covered feet and the temp says 77 in her room. Her hands and cheeks and ears are chilly when I check her before bed. But If I add a small blanket it seems to make her very warm. Anyone struggling with this?
We are expecting our second daughter in December and we will be trying to make our tiny two bedroom apartment work until we can buy a house. We’re pretty minimalist and don’t have a lot of clutter or unnecessary stuff, but I’m desperately looking for some kitchen organization hacks. I think I spend a good deal of my life these days frantically hunting for Tupperware lids and I might lose my ... More
My son(2years old) likes to dump all of his toys all over his floor everyday and "play with them". I have him help me clean up and sometimes it goes well and other it goes horribly wrong like today. I will give him 2 toys, legos and blocks, to put away and today he literally threw a major fit. I never know when to give up trying or how long to let him throw a fit. Sometimes I try to m... More
I'm a working mom who doesn’t always have time to wash clothes right away. So when my child has stained clothes I can’t always throw them in the washer, since I live in an apartment and the laundry room is always busy! My question is: what laundry soap is best to use on kid’s clothes to get old stains off?
I have twin 3yr olds and I’m look for a new “Parenting Bag.” We’ve kind of outgrown the diaper bag, but still need room for their water bottles, snacks and a change of clothes. It wouldn’t hurt if it was halfway stylish. 😂 Any ideas, suggestions on bags you love.
I have a 2 year old daughter and we’re thinking of getting her front facing car seat. I’m thinking of buying her the one4life which is coming out this October but it’s too pricey ($400-$600 I think). One4life car seat is for infant to big kid. It says it grows with your child up to 10 years. If I buy that car seat I already missed out the 2 years of the car seat. Do you think it’s worth it? A...

I’m about 4 weeks away from having baby #3 and on the hunt for a stroller that will accommodate a tall toddler (32 lbs) and a Graco car seat. I’d really like to find an option where the two year old can sit in front. I’ve been looking at Graco (some seem too small) Baby Jogger, Joovy, but the challenge is finding them on sale in person so we can test them out. Any recommendations are appreciated!
