Trip to New Orleans with toddler and baby

We are joining my husband on a business trip to New Orleans and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what I can do with a 2yo toddler and an 8mo baby while dad is in business meetings.

Bedtime routine for a 5mo and a 21mo

My son’s bedtime routine starts with a bottle then bath, pjs, a book or two, lullabies and put him in his crib awake so that he would fall asleep 7:30 - 8:00, this was working just fine but a couple of weeks ago he started waking up and screaming for mommy or daddy non stop till we go and hold him, sometimes he even asks for his sister. The other problem is that sometimes I’m alone with the 2 b... More

How long should I wait to carry my 16 month old after c-section??

I had my second c-section almost 3 weeks ago and I am feeling much better than after the first one. I have a 16 month old that weighs about 21 pounds. We are both suffering because I was told not to lift anything heavier than the new baby. I don’t want to tear or hurt myself but I just can’t wait to have my baby in my arms again. Does anyone know exercises that might help to gain back strength?

Has anyone had a baby with complete heart block??

I’m devastated, a few days ago my sister had an ultrasound and they discovered her little girl has bradycardia, then did some other studies and she’s been diagnosed with a complete heart block. My sister has lupus and got a cold a couple of weeks ago so she thinks her antibodies might have raised and damaged baby’s heart, she’s blaming herself for what is happening and saying she shouldn’t have...

Room sharing

My little boy will be a year and four months old when his sister is born and we are not sure about having them in the same bedroom or separate. We had the LO sleeping on his bassinet for the first 5 months and planning to do the same with the next one, then we moved him to the nursery which is right across from our bedroom (very convenient for those night wake ups). The other rooms are not as n... More

We will be spending 3-4 days in Chicago next month, it’s our first trip there and we are taking our 9 mo boy. We aren’t sure which would be the most convenient way to move around the city, should we take the car seat and stroller? Should we rent? Cab Uber train? I would also love to hear ideas on where to go with a baby and what we must see, where to stay, etc

My 9 month old baby is sleeping through the night but the last couple of days he has been waking up because he is all wet 😣 and it’s hard to get him back to sleep after changing diaper, jammies and some times even sheets. He sleeps either on his side or on his tummy and even the “night” diapers are leaking. I’m pregnant and desperately need some sleep!

My 7 month old baby has been sleeping only at nighttime in a sleep suit since he was 3-4 months old. Today For the first time he turned to the side and then to his tummy during one of his naps, should I stop using the sleep suit? If so, how do I do it? Use a sleep sack or not?

Is it normal for a 4month old OBF to nurse only for 2 min????!!! He has being doing that the last month, doesn’t nurse more often or seem to be hungrier.
