Separation/ vacation with 3 YO

Need some help. My husband and I are separating. We live far away from our families (different countries) so I am trying to plan our next vacation (my daughter and I) with my family but don’t know what to do with my in laws. Don’t really want to stay with them...

Separation with dad

We decided not to stay together and even if I think that’s the right decision I am having a really hard time to processing everything. We have a 2 YO and I am really worried about her.

Kisses at daycare

Is there a policy at daycares for not allowing kids to kiss each other? My daughter loves kissing her friends at daycare and the teacher tells her not to do it and she gets upset every time it happens. What would you do??

Tumor experience?

We just found out that our 2 YO has a tumor in her back neck. She will probably need a biopsy or a surgery to remove it and check. Anyone has experience with this? Thanks. A worried mom :(


Best sunhat for a 2 YO? Thanks!

Pacifier help

Our 2 YO is VERY attached to her pacifier. We tried tonight to not give it to her automatically after her bottle and she became hysterical. Help. How do we wean her off the paci???

Post daycare meltdowns

LO has been in daycare for about 4 months now and she has meltdowns every single day when I pick her up. It starts as soon as we leave the school. Any tips?? Thank you so much!

Potty 🚽 training home/daycare

LO is 20mo. She consistently uses her potty every evening before bath time. I feel she would be ready to be potty trained but daycare doesn’t start potty training until 2YO. What would you do??

Gift teachers daycare?

Our little one started in her new class beginning of November and this is our first time in daycare. What is the most common gift for the end of the year? Thanks!!

Gift for 10 years together!!

Any anniversary gift ideas/suggestions?! Thank you so much

Shoes for daycare

What type of shoes do your toddlers wear at daycare/ preschool? I don’t want for her to stay with her winter boots all day and don’t know what sneakers would be comfy enough to keep all day. Thanks

Healthy snacks for Halloween Trick or treat?

Our daycare is asking for healthy snacks for Halloween. This is our first year and I have no idea! Would you mind sharing some great ideas? Thank you :)

Toddler sick and screaming

Our 18 months had a fever for 3 days and is now super sick (runny nose, cough). She literally can’t sleep and screams every time we put her down. She screamed for 3h tonight and was hysterical before she passed out. What would you recommend?? We are all exhausted... thanks

Pajama for toddler!

Hello! My little one is 18 months and doesn’t use a sleeping bag anymore. I bought her regular pajamas top and pants size 2 buuuut she is waking up every morning with very cold feet. How can I prevent this? Any tips? Thanks!

Daycare daily reporting

My 16 mo started daycare last week. Besides not going so well (which was expected), I am actually a bit upset. - I have no updates during the day, no photos, no info - at the end of the day, when I pick her up, the only things that the teachers tell me are related to eating, napping and pooping. Am I being unreasonable thinking that I should get more info on what she does exactly, and how she... More

Bath time with toddler

How do you manage bath time with your toddler? We are still using the Stokke bath but my 16 mo is standing in it and refuses to sit. I would love to use the big bath but we don’t have a flexible head shower and she is scared of the water coming from so high. Thanks!!


We just started daycare today and I am not convinced at all... The age range in her classroom doesn’t make sense as they are babies and mine is really toddler. + they don’t go outside. What should I do!!???

Pacifier and daycare

LO is starting daycare next week and still taking the pacifier. Should I try to stop this week or leave her to help with the transition? Thanks..,

Bedtime 16 mo

What time do your LIttle ones go to bed? Mine is 16mo. Thanks!

Drop off/ pick up daycare

Hi! I know you guys are a good resource and figured I would ask you. My toddler is starting daycare next week and is having a very difficult time every time I leave the room. She is fine if she is leaving the room/apt with someone else like my mom but always cries if I am the one living the apt. How do you deal with that? My husband thinks it is better to sneak out and I think it’s better to ... More

Best shoes for daycare?

Our walking toddler is about to start daycare. What type of shoes do you use for the kids at daycare? Also, do you have any recommendations for tags to put on clothes? Also I see that we have to provide wipes but LO has diaper rash if we use wipes so we are using liniment. Do you think it’s a option? Thanks!!

Starting daycare at 17mo? Help!!

We just got a spot at a daycare after 1 year on the waitlist. The spot is for September and our daughter will be 17 mo. My husband wants to send her but I don’t think I am ready. I’ve been staying at home with her and we have a very close relationship. She always wants to stay with me and my husband is worried she is not getting enough socialization. What do you think? We have to give an answer... More

My daughter fell badly on her mouth

Dry skin spot?

My daughter has like a dry skin spot on her cheek. I put cream to hydrate but it stays. Any ideas? It’s been over two weeks now

Floor bed

We are thinking of transitioning our 14mo to a floor bed and would love some feedback. Right now, we close the door of her bedroom for nap time and at night but I am wondering what happens when they wake up. I am sure she will be knocking on the door which is not really the idea of the montessori bed. Thanks :)

Sleep issue 14 mo

Anxiety separation! Little one just turned one and is dealing with anxiety separation. We have to leave her tomorrow for 3h with my in laws but I am scared... She never wants to stay with them if dad or me are not here. What is your advice for tomorrow? I am pretty sure she will cry which breaks my heart

Evening routine for 1 year old What do you do between dinner and bedtime routine including bottle? Recently stopped breastfeeding and feel like our routine is all over the place. Would love some ideas! Thank you :)

Any recipes for 1st birthday cake that baby can eat?! 🎂

When and how did you your little one stop using the pacifier? She is 11mo and takes it for nap times and nights. We would like to stop but don’t know how to do it especially at night (only the pacifier helps her to fall asleep...)

I feel totally overwhelmed by all the cooking that I do (baby and for us). Any tips/ ideas for the dinner that are easy to do and don’t require at least 1h every night? Thanks!

I am planning on starting cow milk for baby when she turns 1 but a little confused about bottle/ straw cup/ sippy cup. Should I give her milk in a sippy cup? And for the water? Thanks!!
