Death of a grandparent

I just lost my mom 2 weeks ago and she was the main care giver for my son since he was born. The past few months I was off from work taking my mom to her radiation and chemo treatments. So he was used to me being home. He already had separation anxiety from me before. We unfortunately lost her to a different medical condition and it was sudden.

Throwing things

My little guy is 17mo old and will throw things if things don't go his way. I'm sure this is normal but please tell me it doesn't last long! How do you break this behavior? I tell him it's not nice to throw things that he's going to hurt someone. He doesn't like to be told no, so he will get even more mad. I don't think he quite understands yet though. Any suggestions please?

I noticed him maybe not eating the amount of baby foo... More

I feel so bad when he wakes up so u... More

Best humidifier

Looking for recommendations on a good humidifier. My little man caught my cold and is all stuffed up and not happy. I've been doing the saline and suction but he isn't a huge fan of that. Been giving him Tylenol too because I can tell he just feels yucky, I know I did for a good few days. Any recommendations are appreciated! Thanks!

Sleep regression

My little man has started waking up during the night from sleeping all night. He is 7mo olds. I'm hoping it will pass. He still naps well during the day. He'll wake himself up moving his arms or legs a lot at night. Mostly early to mid morning. I normally wait and see what he does and if he starts crying and patting him on the leg and binky don't help I'll make him a few oz of ... More
