My daughter is usually pretty good and has never done anything like this before but I was leaving her daycare with her and I saw another mom walking into pick up get younger child and she had her older school aged child with her. I was saying hello and my daughter skipped up to us and smiled and then threw something at the other moms daughter. It was a pinecone. It didn’t hit the girl but I ask... More
My 2 year old (only kid) has started being a two year old. Lol. Its not as terrible as i thought (yet!) but we have a family staying over who have 2 kids 6yr and 8 months and my guy is having a hard time. At best he didn't notice the baby was around and is minding his business and happily ran around the older one and they played. But on the other end he constantly grabbed at everything the... More
YES I know potty training is a marathon not a race, but I have a few weeks off work and I am thinking it’s a good time for me to focus and buckle down on potty training my almost 2 year old. Do you think my progress from 2/3 weeks will be enough before going back to daycare? (I know his daycare will help of course, but I’d like for it to be more solid before trying to have him potty here and th... More
My son(2years old) likes to dump all of his toys all over his floor everyday and "play with them". I have him help me clean up and sometimes it goes well and other it goes horribly wrong like today. I will give him 2 toys, legos and blocks, to put away and today he literally threw a major fit. I never know when to give up trying or how long to let him throw a fit. Sometimes I try to m... More
Is it weird that I bought a toddler carrier for my two year old? He can walk but I live in NYC and I don't think he will sit still on the bus and train . I don't think it's really safe especially on the train platform to just hold his hand . Does anyone use a toddler carrier or I'm the only one lol
Just found out I am pregnant with baby #2. My son will be about 2 months shy of being 2.5 when the baby is born. That being said, we've been working on potty training with him since he was a little over 1. He did it all by himself. It's a slow process in the sense that he doesn't always go on the potty, but he willingly goes into the bathroom when we say time to go potty. Plus we ha... More
I am not sure if it’s anger or if he’s just learning to deal with emotions or if he’s frustrated with communication, but my toddler seems very violent. He hits and pinches and especially pulls hair. Should I be concerned or is this just a phase? It’s been going on for about a month.
My soon to be 2 year old son is by far one of the pickiest kids alive. And i say that because my other 2 kids will eat the dirt from outside if they could. He’s a pigeon eater as i like to call it. Kid survives on a meal a day and snacks 🤦🏽♀️ I’ve been looking into like pediasure and things of that nature. Any suggestions, recommendations even words of encouragement will work at this point
... nor does he look like he even wants to. He would cry before he puts his arm out to grab it. Which is why he still isn’t on solid foods yet. Helpppp
My son is about to be a year old in a couple weeks and I’m freaking out about the transition from formula to cows milk. I’ve already tried introducing him to some dairy products like cheese,yogurt and other foods that might have dairy in it. He hasn’t had a problem until recently I gave him American cheese, he pooped 5 times in one day causing him a diaper rash. Is he possibly allergic to cows ... More
Took my 1 year old to the children's ER for unexplained vomiting and diarrhea. The doctor's diagnosis is stomach virus and said nothing can be done except letting it run its course for the next 5 days. Absolutely nothing? Not even to quell the nausea, speed it along, or minimize the diarrhea? Did I just get a disinterested doctor or is chronic misery, vomiting, and watery crap all over... More
I am stay at home parent but I try to work from home, it’s becoming impossible as my son is more and more active. His tantrums are more frequent and he wants to be entertained all day long. The only break I get is when he naps for two hours during the day (please god dont let this change) what are your experiences with toddlerhood? where do you get patience? how do you get the energy to handle...

When was the first time your kiddo took a trip without you? My MIL has been insisting she take our 2 year old to California (1.5 hour flight) to visit my brother in law for a weekend..... I don’t know how I feel about it?? Part of me knows of course he’d have fun at the beach all day, but then that distance is kinda far without momma in a strange place.
