Hi there everyone. Like most of the families here we are in quarentine and the little one’s are having a different routine now. My 3 1/2 yr old boy sleeps late and wakes up late.He always throws a trantum during naps and night time. He hits and kicks and bites and gets all high at night. I am looking for some suggestions on night calming items to help him calm down and sleep better at night. Th... More
With most schools closed right now due to COVID-19, I’m wondering if anyone has recommendations for educational/learning apps for kids of various ages? I know that Duolingo is a great second language learning app for older kids, but are there any foreign language learning apps for younger kids? What about apps that teach STEM/STEAM/coding lessons?
I’m looking for a bassinet that I could also use to have by my bedside but don’t know how safe they are when it comes to overnight sleep. During the day I’d be up so baby could sleep there and I’d be aware but is it built to handle all night sleep?
Hi, does anyone know if they make a bigger size puddle jumper? My son is 4.5 and about 50 lbs and we love his puddle jumper, but afraid he’s getting to big to use it this summer. I really don’t like traditional life jackets as they ride up and cover his neck and chin. He is going to be in swim lessons soon but I want to have something for spring break and this summer just in case we need it for... More
I’ll be having my 2nd baby soon and I’m debating on whether to get an infant car seat or a convertible. Are infant seats safer than convertible seats for infants or something? I’m just trying to think ahead budget wise and where money will be best used on the long run BUT I also don’t want to compromise safety. Any tips would be appreciated!. Tia!
Hello everyone, I'm a little depressed as I'm planning my second child first birthday here. I brought the pictures and videos from my first child first bday and watched them. I feel like there was so much attention to her on that day. Everybody dressed up, so many gifts and decorations, balloons and bday cups and tissues. There was a big cake with her name on it and she was the princess... More

Where can I trade in my baby jogger stroller? It’s still in great condition. I’ve been wanting to jog/start running but I’m a SAHM. I don’t have anybody to leave my daughter. I’m not comfortable with daycare. She also loves outdoor so I want my toddler to be cruising while I exercise. I don’t wanna pay for a running stroller since I have an umbrella stroller as well. I don’t need three strolle... More
My children absolutely don't respect their things, no matter how cheap or expensive. My 11 year old sons tablet has an absolutely smashed screen and I have told him that if he wants nicer things to take care of and cherish them. But to no avail he still destroys his things along with his 8 year old brother. And it's rubbing off to their 4 year old sister. None of them care for their things.
When did you remove the infant seat? Like the little crotch area thing, and just let toddler sit on it like a normal chair? I have removed the straps already because she hated it... so the infant thing is the only thing holding her haha Thanks!

What are you doing with money gifts given to young children? Mine is too young to “save or spend” his own money Sometimes I put it in his 529 account but this year the amount was very minimal.... sometimes I’ve used it to buy kid supplies and needs. Wondering what others do with cash given to kids 5 and under.
Ok I give Up.

“The car seat broke into pieces in a 30 mph crash test commissioned by CNN, failing to meet the basic standards set by US regulators.” Some sellers are copying popular products like the Doona carseat/stroller and selling unsafe versions for a discount. https://apple.news/AC8k9ePq8Ssu7LxgrXvaAzg
I’ve been thinking about getting our 2 year old a tablet for Christmas. We are due with twins in January and I was thinking it’d be something special for him to focus on and do/play when we have our hands full, especially at first. My husband isn’t as convinced, says he’s too little and it’s unnecessary.... of course I’d control what’s on it and when he can use it, and even try and do some educ... More
What is a good gift for preschool teachers plus assistants. It’s quite a few of them which is why I’m leaning towards a group gift. Was thinking cookies but they just had a bake sale at the school so I’m assuming they may be cookie’d out. Any other good group gifts to give?? Tia
