Summer! So it’s ~90F outside. We have the window AC set up in the nursery, but I worry the babe will be too cold. What temperature/pj set up do you aim for? (Kiddo is 7 mo, tonight she has the Merlin Sleep Suit on and the room is 70 and her little feet felt cold so I lessened the AC. ) I feel like I should instinctive know what to do here, but I don’t. Thanks!
I’m constantly on my feet. I walk anywhere from 15,000 to 20,000 steps a day between the kiddos and the dogs, groceries and my work. I just finished demolishing my Nikes and I’m curious if anyone has any recommendations for some great shoes to run around in? I have a high arched foot so I certainly don’t and can’t do flat styled shoes. Any info helps! Thanks guys.
Trying to figure this out and I’m sure it varies from baby to baby. After the most rapid growth spurts during the first 6 months, how much time did you anticipate your baby being in any one size? Trying to plan for seasons and making sure we have what we need but it’s challenging! I have an 8 month old who’s just now in 6-12 and 12 month sizes and he seems to be leveling out.. Thanks in advanc... More
I am especially stuggling with pants. I'm not the type to wear sweatpants for the next 6 months, but those are the only ones that stay in place and don't feel unconfortable. I have several maternity pants, but I'm throwing them out now because I have to constantly pull them up and adjust them. I do like skirts and dresses, but those are not practical on the playground with two toddlers.
The naked phase. Please. For the love of sleep and my sanity. How have you kept clothes on a 1 y/o? This past week her mission has been to undress herself, take her diaper off (rain or shine) and share the joy. Ethan Hunt would be proud. Y’all, she just got out of a fully fastened onesie (with the clasps on the bottom). If I had access to a straight jacket she would be in one. David... More
Help! We're headed to the beach soon, and I am having trouble finding a *small* beach hat to help shade our *small* baby. I'm looking on Amazon, searching specifically for NB sizes, but just getting "0-6mo" which are just huge on her. - Looking for something on Amazon - The "size 0-6 mo" hats don't cut it; they're too large. Baby is not preemie, but a preemi... More
At what age does a baby realistically need to start wearing shoes? My almost 10 month old is standing and cruising around furniture, trying to take steps on his own. I went to look at shoes for him today and they’re about the same price as an adults 😳 I want to buy a good pair such as stride rite with good support. I just don’t know if he really needs them
I have a fashion type question. I have a high neck (like up to my collar bone) cream long sleeve blouse I got to wear for work. I don't want my undershirt to be obvious or easily seen like the fashion is with sheer blouses. I'm trying to find a shirt to go under, but haven't found anything yet. I was thinking a skin tones tank. Any recommendations of what type would work best?
So I know when you have a newborn we all have to cover them up with long sleeves, long pants, a beanie...etc. and also swaddle them. My question is, what if you have the baby in the summer and it's super hot and humid outside. Can I not swaddle my newborn and have him wearing short sleeve onesie only? Like what outfit can I have my newborn wear?
Anyone dealing with sensory issues regarding toddlers and clothing? This is new behavior where clothes/tags are itchy and bothering him. It results in crying, screaming, tantrums and a little panic. It’s triggering my anxiety and I don’t think I have been handling it correctly. I want to make him feel comfortable and safe without turning this into an obsessive behavior.
I’m looking for suggestions as to where I can find fitted bras after I’m done nursing. I’m finally down to 3 feedings. I feel that at this point, I need to get measured by the professionals because when I bought bras online, they fit so terribly! So now I’m still wearing nursing bras but still would like some bras with more support. Thanks!
MIL buys our kids a lot of clothes, which is very kind and generous, except that often these are terrible quality and begin to look ancient within the first few washes. I have tried to politely say that I’m happy buying them stuff- I often get used clothes from friends that I much prefer to new cheap ones!- but she just keeps buying. What annoys me most is that when it’s time for a clear out, a... More
