My wife has gone back to work, I’m full time stay at home dad with 2 month old. I know my wife is missed and would like more time with the baby, I’ve got everything on handled, but I get the feeling she feels left out. I try to give her as much time with the baby as possible. In the morning, I pack her lunch, make her breakfast, cook dinner, and keep the house clean, and try to save some activi... More
My sister is 3 weeks postpartum and she wants to have sexual intercourse and doesn’t want to wait anymore. I told her she already waited this long and if she can wait a few more weeks it’ll be worth it because she NEEDS to heal. She won’t listen to me though and I’m pretty sure she’s going to do it anyways. So have any of you had sexual intercourse before the 6 week mark??
How did you afford your wedding? Did you pay for all of it? How old were you? What was the ballpark cost total? Did you have any $$$ left at the end? How do people do it? Rings, dresses, venues, food/drink, music... How can you afford to live and have a family/house when it’s all said and done? It’s making me nauseous.
Ever since my daughter was about 6 months old, my SO sleeps on the couch. She didn’t start sleeping through the night til she was almost 18 months old, and he works a very stressful job with long hours so he had just gotten used to sleeping down there. Now she is almost 22 months old and he still won’t sleep in our room, and whenever I ask why it’s bc he says he needs to watch tv to fall asleep... More
We’re about to have our second child, and the hubs wants his mom to be in the room when the baby is born. For the first time my mom and him were in the room. I told firstly only two people are allowed in the room and I want my mom to be there which he said she was there the first time and we should let his mom be there this time. But a girl just needs/wants her mom there. So he said then he’ll ... More

Hello! I was just wondering if any of you guys are on mirena AND breastfeeding and if so do you get a period? My daughter is 19 months old and i haven't had a period since the one right before i got pregnant with her (may 2016). I used to breastfeed a lot but now that she is getting older i only breastfeed every other night so i don't know if that even makes a difference anymore. I jus... More
Me and my husband have been together for 3 happy years. We have an almost 2 year old daughter. She wasn't planned but we were still excited. I'm ready to try for baby number 2 but he says he doesn't want anymore kids. When I ask why he says that he doesn't want to deal with infant stage again. (Our daughter was born with health conditions which have passed but made infant stage ... More
My bf of ten years has become more and more violent over the past few months. It started small little annoyances would set him off but recently he has been especially horrible. Last night on our second child's 1st birthday party he got extremely intoxicated. He was talking down to me and said some real hurtful things. I did throw my shoe at him after suggesting he go to sleep because he was... More
Had anyone else dealt with this at such a young age? My daughter is not yet 2.5 and I think she is being bullied by a 3 year old who used to be in the same class with her. They were friends before and I think my daughter has a hard time understanding the age difference and that since this girl moved up she has new friends, but this girl says some mean things to my daughter and I’m pretty sure s...

My husband and I just decided to go to couples counseling. We’ve always had ups and down, but since the baby came it feels like we struggle to communicate and bicker a lot. I know a lot of that is typical, as we are tired and busy and adjusting. Anyway, I’m terrified the result will be divorce. Anyone have success stories with counseling? Maybe if I keep ignoring it it would get better, but b... More
My daughter looooves her daddy and says regularly to me, “I don’t like you”, and also says, “I don’t like Mommy” to her Dad. When we ask why, she says, “Mommy is not nice.” As I am actually very nice to my daughter but yes, I do set boundaries with her, this is a little confusing. We both practice positive discipline, no hitting, etc. I have definitely been a bit more stressed lately because I ... More
We had to go through IVF to have our first baby, who is the light of our life. Our baby is a year old now. After three failed IVF cycles the fourth was the charm. We ended up with two viable embryos and chose to transfer one and preserve the second to try for number two. Shortly after baby was born my husband told me this was enough for him, he didn’t want anymore. Everyone told me to give it ... More
Our 3.5yo boy is well behaved most of the time, but can have typical toddler moments too. My boss/friend has two sons 3 & 5 who behave terribly (hit, scream, whine, and manipulate to get what they want etc). When we have gotten together my son starts to act out like them and continues to do so afterwards. It requires so much “relearning” of good behaviors that it isn’t worth it to us to get... More
