Hi need some advice please, I’ll be flying with my almost 1 yr old daughter. The flight is gonna be 13hrs or more... what should I expect? Any tips? TIA!!
I have a friend that just found out she’s expecting. It’s still early but she is very excited to find out the gender. She said she wants to find out the gender with her husband first but then wants to announce it to friends and family in a cute way. Anyone have any cute and maybe different ideas for a reveal? She doesn’t know yet if she wants to have a party or maybe just cute photo ideas
It’s been 14 months since birth and my weight is increasing significantly. All my time is dedicated to my baby boy so I find it difficult to take care of me. I indulge in junk food like it was a drug and now I’m needing rehab. Any suggestions on juggling a toddler and a healthy eating lifestyle?
Just wanted to share a money saving tip to those trying to conceive that was told to me by my dr. Both ovulation and pregnancy test can be pretty speedy, even if you go the dollar store route (they are the same quality as the $20 ones). You can buy strips in bulk on Amazon, I got a box with 50 ovulation strips and 50 pregnancy test strips for $20! You will want to buy small cups as you dip thes... More
Exchange unused babiesrus gift cards for buybuybaby gift cards! They do not match it dollar to dollar however. Probably works best if you still have a lot of balance on the card but don't have the need to purchase anything from the babiesrus store. https://buybuybaby.cardcash.com/
Does anyone have veggie advice? I'm at my wits end trying to get my son to at least try a veggie. He will not eat anything green. His poops are hard sometimes which cause him to strain. I tried flax seed (ground) all it does is give him gas, prune juice stopped working. His father, my friends all say that it will come in time and some kids just dont eat veggies i get that part but I'm... More
Loved this! To raise resilient kids, you should let them display emotions like tantrums and not immediately try to get them to stop crying. “More than that, allowing ourselves — and our children — to experience and express a full range of emotions is vital to our well-being” https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/28/well/family/to-raise-resilient-kids-be-a-resilient-parent.html
How do you all find time for self-care/hobbies/side hustles? Do you regularly make time for any of these things? My husband travels across country frequently so I don’t always have him to take care of the kids when I want/need time to do these things. Nanny/babysitter on a regular basis is not an option on a regular basis for financial reasons.
We are planning a road trip with my daughter who will be 10 months (almost 11 months) old at the time. She is not a great sleeper but pretty much solely sleeps in her crib right now (naps and at night). I’m planning on taking a pack and play but am not convinced how well she will do in it. She still wakes up quite a bit at night. I don’t mind if she ends up having to sleep with me but I’m conc... More
My husband and I have 3 kids. He works full time Monday through Friday and I'm home with the young ones while my 8 Year old is in school. During the week our family is so much on a schedule and everything seems fast paced. Him and I barely get alone time just to talk to each other. On the weekends we try to do family things as a whole and so even on the weekends there is no quality time. An... More
Any parents that don't keep their babies/newborns in car seat when going from car to house or car to anywhere? I am very small and live up 3 flights of stairs and just don't see it being possible, even though most say it's the best option because they stay sleeping. Just looking for some reassurance that taking them out of it to relocate is an ok option too
