What’s some tips and clues to get a little girl potty trained. My daughter will be three next month. Is that too early?
My 2 year old will literally eat nothing. Not a single bite. He will ask me to feed him certain things. But I had enough of that and so I’m refusing to feed him (he has a plate of his usual foods in front of him) but he will just sit there and wait for me to put the food directly in his mouth. Then eventually he will say he’s done and that’s the end of it. My husband is home by his afternoon sn... More
Hi everyone, I have a 21-months-old toddler, still breastfeeding but does not take breast milk in a bottle or cup (I hear this is common for toddlers) nor as a popsicle. I have some frozen breast milk from pumping on a trip, and would like to use it for her. Before I go through the trouble of baking with breast milk or making other things, I'd love to hear if there's a reasonable chanc... More
What age did you get rid of the pacifier completely? My 18 month old only uses hers for naptime and bedtime, but I can’t imagine her falling asleep without it. I’ve heard if you get rid of it before two it’s much easier. What has your experience been? Did you do it cold turkey or just slowly wean off?
He hits me and throws things now when hes upset. Just started these past few days. He hits me once and waits for a response. I would tell him stop and walks away. If he throw things, I walk away and tell him to stop too. But it doesn't seem like it works. We are thinking of a time out chair. Any other advice on how to deal with this?
I’ve been researching and can’t find swim floats for toddlers that weigh less than 30 lbs. I was able to find life jackets for as young as infant but my son (15 months) is terrified of wearing the life jacket as it’s hard to move his neck and see with it on. While I intend on holding my son in the pool this summer and he’s signed up for swim lessons, he’s a very independent child, he’s quite st... More
My 2.5yr old daughter is currently having issues staying asleep at night and refusing naps or only taking a short one. Also she will ask to eat dinner, I'll let her pick what she wants to eat, then she only takes 3 bites and says shes done. She will then ask for a snack later. She eats all of her breakfast and lunch. Has anyone else encountered this? Was wondering if it's just a sle... More
We haven’t done it yet but it is in the near future. My son has started moving his toys from the living room to his bedroom. I’m not sure why... should I put a halt to that and move his toys back in the living room to prevent issues when we transition him into his toddler bed? He’s always had toys in his room, but mainly quiet toys and books. He recently moved his big bag of blocks and variety... More
My almost 16 month old daughter is not eating very much...maybe like 3-4 bites on her own, and then I have to feed her and most times it's such a struggle, she is so distracted!!! on a good day it takes about atleast 30 minutes to feed her, this has been so frustrating for me but I need her to eat so I've been feeding her. I spoke to her pediatrician about it and he suggested that I jus... More
My daughter just turned one on Monday. She was doing great going to sleep on her own and staying in her own crib. Lately she wakes up crying and sits up. She won’t go back down until I pick her up and take her to bed with me. She is getting her first tooth. I don’t know if it’s just a new thing and is teething related or some stage. Any advice would be welcome
My mom thinks I’m silly for wanting to get my LO a tooth brush at 12 months, but she has 9 teeth already and is eating a lot of different food. I don’t normally give her too much processed sugar, but for her first birthday party this past Saturday she did manage to get her hands on quite a bit throughout the day from multiple family members and her smash cake. aI know some of my babysitters fee...

So I’m new to this but I’m kind of hoping someone will have some advice. My daughter will be three may 31st but she doesn’t talk. Mostly just grunts and whines. But I also lost a daughter 7.7.17 and being a year old I didn’t think it’d affect her. Am I just stressing for no reason?
My two year old manages his tantrums fairly well, but recently he’s been struggling to accept he has to go to daycare. He’s been going since 7 months so it’s nothing new and he used to enjoy leaving in the morning. But he was sick a few weeks ago and got to stay home with me, and since then he’s been difficult with his morning routine. I should also mention we have a 3 month old who is stays ho... More
Hi! I have a 15 month old girl and she has been given a bottle in her crib to help her fall asleep. I’m trying to get away from that. I’m thinking of trying a new routine like a bath then a bottle and read to her then brush her teeth and put her down but I’m curious as to what everyone else does. I really want to incorporate books because she won’t let me read to her unless she has a bottle
My daughter is 9 months, she don't have any teeth yet but has been eating Gerber baby food for about 4 months now. I want to start giving her more solid type of food and not just puree but I am nervous. Can anyone give me some recommendations on how to start giving her more solid foods? Thank you in advance for any advice.
So my daughter is almost 3 and is very stubborn and strong willed. It had taken her a very long time to get potty trained and has been doing really good the past 3 weeks. But when it comes to going number 2 she has a hard time. I’m not sure if it’s the fact that she’s scared to go in the potty even though she had before or if it’s the fact that she’s holding it in but she has not gone in now 3 ... More
So my 2.5 yr old has always gone to sleep like clockwork. Even tonight right on cue he declares bedtime and we went through his ritual and said goodnight. But tonight he keeps getting up. He's not fussing or making noise. He is just sitting quietly in his room reading with the light on. If I go in he turns the light off and gets in bed. Then he is up again 5 minutes later. I am just really ... More
