We recently started using timeout with our LO who is 19 months old. It’s not working, he thinks it’s fun. HELP!
What are your experiences with ear infections? Our little one has had constant infections since about March of this year. He’s been on 3 oral antibiotics and just finished an injection antibiotic today. Our PED is referring us to an ENT and says we may have to do tubes. We are going to check them again on Monday and if it not better we are headed to the ENT. My mom said that I had to take a s... More
It’s been a crazy few weeks....we’ve had an ear infection, air travel, sinus infections for the whole family, a death in the family, a leak in the kitchen, now our sitter is sick today and the backup care service hasn’t been able to find anyone to help so I had to stay home from work...again....and bonus, the water heater is broke. I love our baby boy more than anything....I just need a break.
Our LO’s daycare is closing in March. He’s 14 months right now. It’s an in home and we LOVE it there. I am having the hardest time deciding what to do for child care. My hope was to find another in home or maybe a nanny share but I haven’t had any luck. (suggestions accepted) There are so many things to consider.....his current care is Montessori based b/c she’s certified but the big schools h... More
So our son got A LOT of electronic toys from out family for Christmas. We don’t really want him to have very many lights and sounds toys. We aren’t ruling it out completely but we are keeping it down to just a couple at a time. His birthday was in October and we exchanged half of the gifts he got for non electronic toys. At this point I am a little afraid that people might start noticing that t... More
We are in the process of weening our son from breastmilk and nursing to cups with whole milk. He is 12 months old. He is now only nursing at night before bed. He doesn’t love the whole milk so we are still mixing with a little breastmilk. Our Ped said he need 16-24 oz of milk per day plus 3 meals but we are having a hard time getting him to drink that much milk. What advice have your Peds. give... More
When did you turn you child’s car seat around? My son I almost 13 months. He meets the height and weight requirements and currently hates riding in the car and getting in his seat. I’m hoping if we turn him around he will like it better because he will be able to see more. Thoughts?
Every time I think things are going ok something else happens as if to say nope life doesn’t get to be easy.
He is 6 months old and we started solids a few weeks ago and we are doing BLW. He eats a good dinner, usually yogurt, a fruit, and a veg.... sometimes a meat. He is still waking to eat 2-4 times per night. We are trying to get him to go back to sleep without it but it doesn’t always work. How do I know if he is truly hungry or if he just want comfort? If it’s just comfort what are some ways to ... More
Oh my goodness, need some encouragement right now. My sweet boy just turned 4 months and has stopped sleeping through the night, his schedule is completely off, he’s refusing to nap during the day, he’s a little unsettled when he nursing and he just wants me to hold him all the time....I’m so tired and sore. Tell me this is just a phase and he’ll grow out of it.
So I’ve been back at work for about 3 weeks now. People there keep asking me if it gotten easier or if it nice to be back. I just want to scream at them No, I hate being away from my Baby Boy! Other people don’t keep up with his schedule and he doesn’t like me being gone! Lucky my Mom is keeping him for me right now, but that is only through July. I don’t think we will be able to afford daycare... More
Hi all! So My wife and I are going to be opening up a cloth diaper service in the Marietta/Roswell/Alpharetta, GA area. If you or someone you know may be interested please let me know. Here’s hoping it will be so successful that I won’t have to go into the office job anymore. 🤞🙏🏼
My son is 8 weeks old and up until now have been EBF. We are now giving him one bottle a day because I have to go back to work in January. It’s breaking my heart to hear and watch him struggle to take a bottle. He hates it. I would do just about anything to stay home with him.
Hi all, my son will be 8 weeks the day after Christmas. I can’t believe how the time is already flying by. I’m going to have to go back to work in January and I haven’t been able to bring myself to leave him for more with anyone. He’s always at least in the same house or store with me. I know he’ll be safe with my wife or my mom but I just don’t want to be away from him. Any tips on coping with... More
