2.5 year old adjusting to daycare/preschool

My parents used to take care of my 2.5 year old son while my husband and I were at work. He started going to preschool/daycare a month ago and he’s doing okay now. The issue is that even though he doesn’t fight it (like he does before bath time and bedtime) he whines and cries all morning while everyone is getting ready in anticipation of getting dropped off.  He wakes up okay, then the whining...

I know oxytocin is responsible for milk let-do... More

I know labors are all vastly different but just wanted to... More

He's still doing that most nights, but lately he's been getting better at putting hims... More

Labor and delivery the second time around

My first was born at 40 weeks 1 day, I was in labor for about 36 long hours with contractions that would stall every time I sat down, so I ended up having to get induced because of low amniotic fluid, and i pushed for 2.5 hours... They will be 2 years 3 months apart. Just wondering how different it was, if it w... More
