My son is 18m and he only wants to run all over the house without sitting down. Any ideas on how to make him calm?
Hello everyone I am planning to take my 16 month old son to Waterpark for a weekend in March. This will be our first trip to a water park. It's an indoor park as here it will be cold yet. What do you all suggest for things to keep with me? Is there anything to keep in mind just in case? For the trip or the water park fun? Pls share your experiences and suggestions. Thanks on advance..!!
What are some other savings options we could set up for our kids, other than a regular savings account? I know there are options for saving towards an education, but the kids are getting money as gifts, so I’d like it to be theirs to do with as they please when they’re older. It would be nice to have it grow more than .01% over the next 10-15 years.
Was feeling quite proud of myself that my 14 month old hadn’t breastfed for 48 hours. I also have a bad cold so was glad to take some decongestants, to battle on for me and reduce supply (I’ve come across that here). But one breast has been incredibly painful and as I had mastitis back in the summer in the other breast, which doesn’t actually produce much milk at all, I gave in and let him brea... More
I recently purchased a lovely antique wool blanket, but even after washing it with special wool-friendly soap, I cannot seem to rid it of a very strong perfume-y smell. I would normally hang it outside for a few days but we are buried under snow and ice here, so that’s not really an option at the moment. What are your tips and tricks for getting rid of stubborn smells trapped in fabrics? ... More
I know it’s a toddler thing to get upset about everything, but when my son doesn’t get his way, can’t do something (like open a marker) or doesn’t like something, he will screech/scream. I’m trying to teach him not to, but he doesn’t talk yet so it’s challenging. Any ideas on steps to take to help combat this? Thank you!
My 15mo daughter has been having a runny nose/cough for a few days now but no fever. She is teething (molars) not sure if that has anything to do with it but any tips on how to clear the mucus from her nose? I’ve done saline drops and the suction bulb also I run a humidifier in her room but doesn’t seem to help much. 😕
So I am a mom or a one year old and another in the oven- due in October! Super excited! But for fellow moms out there, I have a question. How did you introduce baby to an already existing routine with your first child who is coming into toddler hood rapidly?! How does your schedule work with a newborn and toddler?! I’m sure I’ll get the grove pretty quick, but I’m a little anxious about it at ... More
I am evaluating changing jobs after my leave, and I’d be starting a new job 5-6 months after my daughter is born. I’d like to try to breastfeed until she’s one, but I’m worried about how to make it work. At that point, how many times a day should I expect to be pumping, and how long does each session take? I’ll have a Spectra S1 (and possibly a Willow, a gift from a friend). The company I h... More
Any tips on increasing supply after 1year. I’d like to build up my freezer stash so he can drink BM well into 2 years especially if I were to discontinue feeding him ....I tried pumping last weekend along with feeding and became completely frustrated since I only got about an ounce I’ve also been taking fenugreek- any suggestions are appreciated

Hey everyone So my 16 month old Son doesn't like shoes 😀. He just kicks them out as I put it on his feet. I have the velcro shoes. Looking for ideas that I can use so he is not able to kick it out? May be some different kind or type? What do you all do? Thanks in advance...
