I’m a soon to be mom and figured I should be stocking up on diapers. I’ve read about these really savvy moms that clips coupons, search for sales and end up getting great prices on them. I lack such saviness so I’m trying to see where I could go to save money. I used pampers at first and the target brand when my first born was older. Pampers can get pricey but target, at the time, wasn’t cuttin... More
Does anyone have suggestions for getting the morning nap in for my 9 month old? I am currently juggling a 2 year old, a 9 month old (who hates all sleep) and have to take the kids to childcare for work for a few hours each day. Feeling like if I could provide some consistency with naps that we might have a better sleeper. What have you done?

Our almost 6 week old baby has just started sleeping large chunks (roughly 5-7 hrs from start of final evening feed to “middle-of-the-night feed). We only have enough room to have our 21 month old and baby share. Is this a good enough stretch or should we wait a bit longer? Baby currently sleeps in a pack n play in our room, but we have a mini crib already set up with the toddler bed (it’s j... More
February is black history month and I've been slacking. My older daughter has been learning about some famous African Americans in preschool but I want to do more at home too. Ideas for books or activities that are good for a 4.5 and almost 2 year old?

My toddler, 3 has the flu, found out on Monday so he’s been sick since Saturday afternoon. His fever has gone and seems fine but he is so tired all the time. He has been sleeping so much and lying around. Does anyone with having experienced this know when my little man will have his energy back? I hate he’s not himself!
I’m about to rip my hair straight out my head!!! My 27 month old listens to everyone but me. He will let anyone but me change his diaper and dress him. I get a tantrum and literally have to hold him down to get anything done. At first I thought Maybe I was hurting him but I’ve watched my husband do both and it’s no different than I do. He cuddles with me and likes me(lol) so I’m wondering if it... More
I always had a bedtime routine from the time my daughter was 7 months old and up until she was 2 years old. The routine stopped because she refused to be read or sung to like we usually had done. The previous nighttime routine was this: Dinner (6pm), bath (7pm), brush teeth/hair (7:30pm), read a book and sing (7:35 - 8pm), bedtime/sleep (8pm). After she turned 2, she decided she didn't wan...

My one year has no problem sitting on the toilet and going potty, my almost 2 year old however refuses to sit on it and screams/kicks/cries/and makes her leg stiff straight. I don’t know what to do, she doesn’t like diapers much anymore and comes asks for a change when she done pooping/peeing. Any recommendations?
My two year old just figured out how to open doors and now won't stay in her room at night/for naps.
My toddler has always been an excellent (though light) sleeper. No problem self-soothing, etc... However she recently learned how to open doors and has been coming out of her room multiple times when she is supposed to be sleeping. We have an ok-to-wake clock and she does seem to understand the concept but either stays awake staring at it waiting for it to change or totally disregards it. We al... More
How were you able to decide which type of childcare was right for you? There seem to be so many choices, from private nannies to nanny shares to in-home daycares to daycare centers to co-working spaces that have childcare. What factors did your family take into consideration when deciding on the type of childcare to choose?
I work/study from home and needed some time during the week to focus on my work. So we found a 2 day a week home-based daycare situation with a 1:2 to 1:3 ratio that we pay $16/hr. Baby (9 months old) is a challenge to feed and doesn't nap on a schedule, but if you put finger food on the tray, he will eat the food by himself but it will take time and if you just let him play he will end up...

My LO is 19mo and HATES/won’t let me suction the boogers from her nose. We used to use the bulb but never really worked so I bought the nosefrida and it works great when I can actually hold her down long/hard enough to get her not to move. This just isn’t working!! Any ideas/tricks to help me get the boogers out?
