Our son fights us when we ask him to try and use the potty. I don't want it to feel like punishment but he just hates it. We aren't even given the chance to focus on rewards. Any suggestions? 0 potty in the potty today and 4 accidents... hoping tomorrow is a better day.
Night wakings, early wakeups, no naps, fussiness. This is a nightmare...
Our toddler was napping about 1.5 hours each day. He's now almost 22 months and it's an hour if we're lucky. Wondering if this is a regression or if it's just a natural decrease that occurs at this age.
Attempting, once again, to start my son at our gym daycare. At 21 months I think more socialization and stimulation may be good for him. After two drop offs I just dread taking him back. It's heartbreaking how he cries at drop off and pick up. It's been a rough week. How long did it take your toddler to adjust to a similar setting? Any encouragement appreciated.

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.
I'm a newly WAHM. Loving being at home with our one year old. In an attempt to go to the gym and socialize our son I've tried to drop him at the gym 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
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
Mommin' ain't easy! Worked 10 hours, saw 8 patients for therapy, trained a student, met with boss, pumped 5 times (3 at work), lunch with husband (first time alone in 4 months), picked up baby from daycare, fed, bathed, nighttime. Now bottles. Today I got 1.5 hours with my son & 1 unexpected hour with my husband....& I will do it all again for those two. A shout out to all y... More
