Toddler won’t stay in bed at night

Last week we converted our daughters crib to a toddler bed since she would climb out every single time we put her in it. She just turned 2.5 and has been a great sleeper since she was about 18 months, but every night we have to lay with her to fall asleep or she gets right up and follows us crying. We have tried holding the door closed, but she just doesn’t stop crying. A gate wouldn’t work bc ... More

Help! Potty training is impossible

My 2.5 year old has been taking her diapers off and tells me when she is about to poop, so I have been trying to potty train her by keeping her naked and putting her on the potty every 10 mins and not taking my eyes off her. Yesterday she held it in for 6 hours and then pooped the 5 mins we were outside. Today I have spent the past 3 hours putting her on the potty and I move away for a second t... More

Wood or metal bunk bed?

The top request on my 6 year olds list is a bunk bed...still not sure if I want to go for it, but have found some good deals on both wooden and metal bunk beds. Which one is stronger? And is it worth the extra money to buy the steps with storage?

18mo teeth brushing

My 18 month old will not let me brush her teeth at any cost..I’ve tried giving her another toothbrush, mirror, brush with her so she can see, nothing. She rips the brush from my hand and clenches her teeth or rolls around throwing a tantrum. Someone help lol!

Does anyone else have a wild child?!

My 16-month-old climbs and jumps on everything and has no fear. It’s really scary! My first was not like this at all so this is shocking to me, and I can’t get anything done since I have to always watch her like a hawk. Today she put the remote in a cup of water, broke a bowl, and flung herself out of my hands and down a couple of steps. It’s so exhausting, and I am with her nonstop and these t... More

The past few weeks my 5 year old has been sleepier than usual. He cut out his naps when he was 3, and he always sleeps 8 pm to about 7-8 am. He’s had a lot of viruses since the holidays, most recently a bout of roseola which was 2 weeks ago. But 3 times in the past 12 days or so he has taken afternoon naps and complains of a stomach ache every now and then. We are in the middle of another snows... More

Has anyone ever had to deal with cavities in a young child? Sadly my 5 year old has a couple cavities, which I feel horrible about even though we brush twice a day and eat healthy. The pediatric dentist says they use laughing gas and then the local anesthetic, and I am nervous about any complications that could happen😩

Is it normal for a baby to be almost inconsolable during a bad cold or flu? She started with pink eye on Sat, then a cold on Mon and today seems to be the worst day so far. Her fever hasn’t gone over 100, so her dr keeps insisting it’s a cold, but I am worried. She is miserable and cries all day and doesn’t eat, and I’ve tried everything from vicks to tylenol, steamy shower, baths, humidifier, ... More

Any advice on transitioning from the rock and play to the crib for naptime? She sleeps in her crib every night, but is resisting it for naps, and the rock and play is just not safe anymore since she can squirm out of the straps.
