I’ve got a growing book stack of baby how-to’s, sleep training, and toddler manuals to get to, and the stack is as tall as my 16 month old. By the time I can find the time to read one, he’s already moved into another age and the book will no longer apply! How do you do it?
I’m looking for some new book ideas for my 2.5 year old. She has a lot of books already but I want to get her some new ones for Christmas. We don’t go over the top for this holiday but books are always a gift. She loves everything....from fire trucks, trains, airplanes and school busses to dolls, babies, animals...very typical toddler with wide and varied interests. She’s an only child and ... More
And feel like it just wasnt the right fit? I found the book to be informative and useful on many levels but knowing my kid I just dont think that method will be the best for her. Just wondering what others thought of the book and experiences with it. TIA!
My almost 2 yr old is just getting super frustrated and lashing out when he doesn’t get his way or we simply don’t understand him. i want to start teaching him more about emotions and he responds to books well. Any book recommendations that cover this topic?
Hi everyone, I have a 2 year old picky eater. I know it’s not uncommon, but I am stumped on how and what to feed her. I feel like she rejects 90% of what I offer, and today I realized she started losing weight. I am looking for book recommendations on how to feed her, and what to feed her. It doesn’t have to be the same book. TIA! 💗
We have a 20 month old toddler and we are due with baby No. 2 in December. My toddler seems really interested in baby and will tell us she wants to go for walks with her, and asks to see my belly all the time to give it hugs and kisses. She even tries to share her food with my belly... 😂 I’m wondering if you can recommend any books or tips that helped prepare your toddlers for being an old... More
Anyone have any advice for toddler ripping books? My daughter is 21 months and has a favorite paper book but lately she’s been ripping it! She loves to read it but then she’ll randomly rip it. We’ve told her the book has to go to time out and will put it away but now she’ll rip it and say “ut oh book time out.” 🙈 So clearly that isn’t working. Any advice?
Has anybody here subscribed any monthly book clubs for kids? Is it worth it? I found a review for some here... https://www.cratejoy.com/box-insider/kids-book-boxes/ I know there are others too. I am thinking of subscribing to one for my almost 6yo daughter.
We are doing ours and it’s pretty cool. Since our son is a pre-reader he can get credit for other non reading related activities that help boost learning and development.
Anyone have any parenting books they recommend? I am a sham of 4 boys ( 6 and under) I recently ordered How to talk so little kids will listen... anyone else read this book? Any other parenting books catering to dealing with toddlers and not lose your mind? Tia
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
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
My 2 year old always says “no mama, no book” when I open a book. He will do his best to close it (including sitting on it if I resist). He always wants to to play cars or something else, which I’m cool with, but you know, all the blogs and guidance say read to your kids daily. I’ve tried reading aloud while he plays as well as just sitting silently with a book, but it’s as if he is jealous of t... More
Bonus if they’re board books. They must exist. Everything we’ve gotten so far is scary as (bleep).
