My 10mo old seems to be fighting her morning nap which is usually at 9:30/10. If I go any later she wont have time for her second nap to fit in and still be tired for bedtime at 7:30/8pm. Is it too soon to try one nap?
At what age did you introduce your baby to a “lovey”? Im thinking of giving my daughter one but is it a suffocation risk? How did you introduce it?
Starting to think about transitioning my almost 4mo old to the crib in her bedroom. Right now she naps swaddled in a rock and play in my bedroom and sleeps in a bassinet in my bedroom too. I started leaving her arms out of the swaddle at night for two nights now since shes been sucking on her hands a lot. Any tips to transition to her crib? Should I start w naps, night time or both?

I have “mom thumb” 👍 aka tendonitis that I read half of new moms get! For those who have had it- what did you do to heal it? Im making an appt to see my doctor next week but in the meantime would like to get a headstart on healing it.

How did you get thru the first few days back to work after maternity leave? I think Im going to be a complete mess!! Im going back to work on Wed after 12 weeks off. My employer is taking me back part-time 3 days a week and my mom will watch my daughter. Im so thankful and fortunate that everything is working out this way but am SO nervous and will miss her SO much while Im gone.
Any tricks to get my newborn to nap in her bassinet/ rock and play for more than 30 minutes? Her eyes pop open almost 30 mins on the dot just about every time! I try once or twice a day and then I have her in the carrier on me for her other naps bc I know she’ll sleep 1-2.5 hours on me. I dont want her to get overtired! Will she be able to fall back asleep on her own with age or is there so... More
I am returning to work from maternity leave in 3 weeks and my mom will be watching my daughter. Right now I exclusively breastfeed and my husband gives her one bottle at night which she takes reluctently. I want to get her used to taking a bottle easier and also not be so dependent on comfort feeding on me since I will not be around while at work. I need my mom to be able to soothe her too a... More
Whats the deal with cluster feeding? I have a 16day old baby who last night wanted to breastfeed every 20-30mins for 2-10mins at a time. This went on from 8pm- midnight. She would feed then pull away and fall asleep on me. I would put her down and shortly after she would get fussy and have signs she wanted to eat (opening mouth, rooting). This is cluster feeding, right? Forgive me if it see... More
