When to wean toddler off pacifier?

Baby #2 is due in May and I have a 21 month old that still loves the wubbanub. Is it better to wean now and risk a regression when baby comes? Or wean later and allow him the paci to help him cope with the change?

20 month old having nightmares. Any suggestions?

We bought him a nightlight that worked for 5 nights. He now wakes up with a blood curling scream wanting to be held. Once we put him back in bed he freaks out until held again. Used CIO last night but we hate that method....

Tips for handling whining in a 17 month old.

My son whines so much now. I know that he's frustrated that he doesn't have the words to describe what he wants or how he feels. How do you ward off whining when they don't have the words? Or is this just a phase we get through until he has the words?

How did you juggle being in the hospital with second baby when you already have a child at home?

I am currently 6 weeks pregnant and have a 17 month old. My toddler has rarely been away from me and it gives me anxiety to think of leaving him to be in the hospital. Family has proven to be challenging and I'd rather not ask for their help. I have until May but am just trying to brainstorm. Any suggestions would be great.

Tips for dropping off a 1 year old at the gym's daycare?

He really struggles with separation anxiety right now and the last gym attempt was a nightmare. Is it best to keep trying to take him or wait until some of the clingy-ness subsides??? I dread the thought of taking him tomorrow bu... More

Any recommendations on how to get rid of a croup cough in babies?

Before having a baby I never understood why mothers breastfed. I was formula fed & turned out just fine, right? After doing some research I decided to try breastfeeding without knowing how much work was involved. This week my son had croup. I'd heard that breastmilk changed when your baby was sick. I am so fascinated after comparing milk pumped when he was sick this week (11/1) to ton... More
