I'm going on a 20-hour road trip next month alone with my baby. If your car seat isn't the kind you can carry with a handle, where do you put the baby when you are in a store or stop at a gas station/rest stop to use the restroom? At home, I can put him in the crib, swing, etc. Mine is almost 8 months old so he can sit up but I don't want to let him sit on the floor and I'm too ... More
My 21 month old daughter has rarely been sick. She’s never had a stomach bug though. I’ve had it plenty of times to know what to do, but I would love to hear from you all what you guys do!! Please, any suggestions for calming stomach and soothing it. Also, help with having her eat, drink, and sleep through this!!! Thanks! ❤️
I'm 37 weeks pregnant and have been blissfully optimistic about handling a newborn and a 15 month old. But now as I get closer to my due date, I'm starting to freak out a little... Okay, I'm starting to freak out a lot. Welcoming any and all advice, stories, tips, hacks. Anything. Want to get back into a positive mindset before I deliver my bundle of joy!
I feel that most of the time it is a struggle to get my lo to come inside after playing outside. I’ve tried telling him he has 5 min. or so and then have hit set the time on my phone. Then counting down the minutes. I’ve tried telling him that he can do one more whatever. I’ve tried bribing with a treat. ( which has the highest success rate). My lo simply rarely comes inside willingly. It eith... More
My 5 mos old is teething and in pain. She is having a difficult time sleeping at night. I had given her liquid Tylenol one night and she slept a little better. I have tried teething toys, wet washcloth, and massaging gums and nothing helps. Is this a wait and see or any other tips? Thanks
Hi everyone! My 14 mo uses a pacifier for sleep - naps in crib and bedtime only - and we are thinking its time to wean him off. Can you share when and how you weaned your babies/kids off the pacifier? How long did it take? What worked and what didn’t? Appreciate the help!
So I’m trying to do a double whammy, by quitting breastfeeding (it’s time, my son will be one on the 19th this month) also, we NEED him out of our bed. He is very attached to me and will wake up still in the night to make sure I am there and will nurse for about 10 mins, I’ll add that it’s the only way to get him to sleep, for naps and bedtime. With my daughter I nursed her until she was 13 mon... More
Just passing along something that works for us. When we're in a store and our daughter wants to buy something, if it's not an item that we want to purchase for her, we agree to take a picture of it. This seems to satisfy her because she feels listened to and knows we've saved it for her.
I would love some insight on your experiences. My little Sofia was born 7 weeks ago and I’m still finding that we’re holed up in the apartment. Anytime we try something new, a Stroller Bassinet, the baby bjorn carrier, the Moby, she cries at The top of her lungs and we give up and stay indoors. We go on brisk walks but that’s pretty much all we can do. We’ve had to cancel 1 million times on fri... More
I wanted to share the best piece of advice I've gotten for just after delivery... bring depend adult diapers in your hospital bag! With my first son, I used the hospital ginormous pads and sexy mesh undies. Uncomfortable, leaky, cumbersome. Then I read somewhere to bring adult depend diapers. What a difference with the delivery of my second son! They're just like underwear in terms of... More
My son still nurses 2-3 times every night and I am exhausted. He eats solids 3 times a day & nurses like 5 times in between but still wakes me up. How can I get him to sleep all night ?
My 7 year old son likes to take lots of time for everything he does. When I rush him, he asks why he has to hurry. What is the proper age to expect kids to be more quick and energetic? He plays a lot. But for anything other than playing, he takes a lot of time.
Seriously though, we are currently 3 weeks into the second kid and the *best* advice we *ever* received about getting a fussy baby to chill or sleep was to to cradle or rock them under the kitchen range hood fan. Crank that sucker up to high and it beats *any* white noise machine. This was a lifesaver back when we had our first kid, and it’s back in rotation for number two.
