My son is 25 months old. In the last week he has become extremely irritable and cranky. Everything makes him mad and hes hard to please with anything. He has his moments occasionally but is normally a good kid overall and is happy and playful. He has also been waking up overnight crying and is hard to comfort. We've had to just ride it out and it's really frustrating bc he gets himself... More
I have a 3 year old who absolutely hates going to sleep at night. Every night is a struggle to get her to go to sleep. I’m pretty sure that if it was up to her, she’d stay up until midnight every night. Her nap time is 8 o clock, which I think is reasonable, and only takes one nap during the day around noon, for about 1.5 hours. We’ve tried no sugary snacks after 5, lavender oils, night time ...

My LO has been eating baby food for the last month or so and is starting to eat more now (2-3oz per meal) I usually give it to her in between her bottle feedings. So she’ll has a bottle at 7, baby food at 9 and a bottle at 11. She’ll have baby food 2-3 times a day. And this has been working for us very well. However, I am wondering if I should start giving her the baby food directly after the ... More
I have a 3 year old who is amazing at peeing in the toilet and goes almost every single time but she will not go poop in the toilet! We have "praised" her and disciplined her and everything! We don't know what else to do!! Anyone else have these problems?
Hi all, Lately I’ve realized that my 2yo son has gotten super active. I’m talking about ramming his body into mine constantly, jumping on and off everything, destroying snacks/toys, and even running in circles and growling and wiggling all limbs. Also, his behavior hasn’t been the best. He’s been really defiant, refusing to eat or drink, and a lot of tantrums. I just wanted to know if thi... 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. 😕
Some 2 year olds are able to name them individually (Thomas, Percy, Edward, etc). To some 3 year olds, they’re all “Thomas”. When did your kid start naming them individually?

I’m a SAHM with 5 month old twins and an almost 3 year old. I’m an introvert and need time alone to rejuvenate. I haven’t had time alone for so long yet I feel so alone in life. I used to have a career I worked really hard for, including 2 graduate degrees, and had an office where I worked on paperwork alone much of the day. I remember I used to feel lonely but now I miss that so much. I don’t ... More
When I take my son to story time, gymnastics, or any organized activity he has no interest. He just wants to run around (emphasis on the run) and do his own thing while all the other toddlers seem to be having a great time participating. Since he's only 26 months, do you think I should just stick to playgrounds and free play and wait until he's a little older to do organized stuff? This... More
