My baby recently got diarrhea and now she has redness and rawness on her bum. It hurts when we change her diaper and I usually just wash her bum on the sink because it seems like the baby wipes (Kirkland brand) would hurt more. I’m starting to really apply a large amount of Desitin on her bum hoping it would help soothe her as well as have diaper free time as much as we can. Any advice on how t... More
I used to be able to just place my 1 YO in her crib at night after nursing her and rocking her to sleep. Recently she’s teething and has a small cold that she’s getting over with. Could it just be that she’s attached to me? Because my husband and my sister have been able to just transfer her to her crib when she falls asleep. My husband is guessing that it’s because she feels safe with me and l... More
Nursing my daughter is getting much harder and uncomfortable as I’m getting bigger during my 2nd pregnancy. I nurse her about 3-4 times a day to take her naps and before she goes to bed at night. Any tips to stop nursing her?
What is considered too much TV for a baby? My LO is 12mo next week. I don't have the TV on often as she kind of gets zoned out when she watches Super Simple Songs. It worried me a bit so stopped turning on the TV so much. I only turn on the TV when she is super grumpy and there is nothing else that she wants to do. What do ya'll think?
My LO has 4 teeth and can feed herself just with her hands. When I would hand her her plastic spoons, she'd just throw them around and she seems to do something similar with plates so we just put bits of food on her highchair and have her pick up the food to eat. I was thinking of suction plates to avoid having her throw the plates on the floor and what is the difference between purchasing ... More
The past few days, my 9mo has been waking up almost every hour and a half or two hours to nurse back to sleep. Then she’s been fighting naps during the day and they have been really short lately, only 30-40 minutes. Her second set of teeth on the top center has popped out already and they’re still growing. She also been grouchy lately. I don’t know what to do I’m getting really exhausted and i... More
I’m trying to incorporate more protein and fat to my baby’s diet. Has anyone tried adding olive oil to their baby’s food as a healthy fat? Also tips for adding cheese? She’s 9 months and her second set of teeth are starting to come out. It sure if that is relevant but just something I wanted to share! 😁
When my baby was younger she used to wake up happy from her naps and sometimes from sleeping at night. But now, she cries every time she wakes up. Even when she wake up not crying, once she sees me, then she starts crying. But when she sees someone else like my sister for instance, she’d be happy. She sees my sister as someone who often brings her joy and laughter because every time they’re tog... More
My 7mo will sleep at ~9PM to ~6:30AM. Then after about an hour, she’ll be sleepy again. So she wakes from that nap at ~8:30AM. Another hour goes by and she’s sleepy again! It’s ~9:30 and I spent the hour before that trying to figure out why she’s nonstop crying. I laid her down in her crib just so I can take a short break and now she fell asleep. Has anyone had this sort of problem? Am I doin... More
Recently my baby started crawling and getting up on her knees with the help of furniture around her. When I try to play with her, she doesn't seem so interested in the toys or books I read to her. But once I lie on the floor, she just loves trying to climb or get on top of me. I'll even nurse her while lying on the floor! I'm looking up other activities I can do with her to help wit... More
I just finished sleep training my baby and now she’s recovering from being sick and then her two bottom center teeth are erupting! I’m a bit lost on what to do. This will be the second night of teething baby and I would do night time feedings when she’s wake up crying again. I don’t know if I should stick with the Ferber Method or what. I’m just kind of lost. Any advice?
I just wanted to share that I’ve been using the Ferber Method for almost 3wks to sleep train my 7mo and it’s been a success! I’m quite surprised by the results and if there’s anyone out there who needs help with their baby’s sleep, I recommend using the Ferber Method. Yes there is some crying involved, but it’s not a “cry it out” method. Definitely read the book on the Ferber Method before tryi... More
Has anyone used the Ferber method to sleep train their baby? It’s night 3 for my baby using the Ferber method and I have noticed that her naps are much better than before. Her naps used to be so irregular and short! I’ve got a few questions though: is it normal for my baby to cry a bit before putting her down for her naps? Also the same thing for bed time. Sometimes she’ll start to cry when I... More
It’s gloomy here in CA and it’s making me quite drowsy. But I realize my LO also seems that way today. I started sleep training with the Ferber method yesterday and I just wanted to share that her naps have been a lot longer than before we started the training. Today will be the 2nd day of sleep training, and the naps seem to be going well. Last night I wasn’t too bad either. I went off in a sl... More
Hi parents. My baby woke up 3 TIMES last night =.= she used to wake up only once but she's been waking up more often and I'd nurse her to sleep every time. My husband ordered the Sleep Solution's book by Dr. Ferber. I'm praying that this book will help, because it's starting to drive me a little crazy. Has anyone used the Ferber method and got the results they wanted?
Does anyone’s baby dislike having their diaper changed? My baby was fine with it up until she mastered rolling over. Now she rolls around nonstop! Sometimes I’d distract her with a toy so that she can calm down. But most of the time, she’ll just cry and roll to her tummy. She prefers being in her tummy than her back. Any suggestions? Or is this inevitable and there’s nothing that can be done?
