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??
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
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.

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!!
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.

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!!
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
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 :)
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...
