How old was your little one when they started talking? My 15 month old talks a lot but it’s just cute baby babble.
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?
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
My son will be 4mo next week and still does not seem entertained with toys as far as wanting to reach or hold onto them. I put them in his hands but after a couple seconds he’ll let go. Is this normal? When did you baby start holding onto or seem interested in toys?
How much sleep does your 3yr old get? We recently started experimenting with “quiet time,” rather than nap time. I have mixed feeling about it - on the plus my twins are going to bed around 7pm rather than 9. They also go down 100% easier and quicker. However, I’m worried they are not getting enough sleep ... they generally will wake up between 5 and 6 in the morning. They sometimes get cranky... More
Hi moms! My almost 11 month old recently started hitting his head with his both hands when he gets angry he tries to hit me too but I don’t let him, I’ve been reading it’s a common thing because they don’t know how to handle anger and frustration, and that it eventually goes away, but I wanted to know if y’all went or are going through the same and how you guys handle it. Also my first concern... More
For several medical reasons, I’ll have my tonsils removed when our baby is about 9 months old. During recovery I won’t have use of my voice, and I’m concerned about engaging baby. How do/did you engage with baby when you had severe sore throats or laryngitis? We do baby signs, but I’m worried baby won’t get the speaking/reading/singing play she’s used to while I’m “out of commission.” Any s... More
My 20 month old son is not requesting milk or any food by himself. We want to train him in that area. If he sees a water bottle then he will bring it to us and says “open.” But, what if he doesn’t see a water bottle around and he’s thirsty? We don’t know if he will look for it on his own. Anyone have any suggestions? Please let me know.
My almost-21 month old says about 20 “real” words. A couple more if you count animal sounds, which I’m not. He was born 2 months early so there’s that, but I know preemies are supposed to be mainly caught up by the time they’re 2. I’ve been seeing so much come up all over the place about early intervention and I’m wondering if that would be something to look into. My preschooler was always ahea... More
My daughter has never been a good sleeper and lately she wants to sleep all of the time. She comes up to me all the time asking for a nap. She has to be held for naps or else she wakes up constantly and is waking up a lot throughout the night. She is cranky all day. Is there some sort of developmental phase at this age? She's been learning and doing a lot more lately. She knows her colors a... More
Hi all. I realize I’m probably overthinking this but my 12 month old only says 1 word “uh oh” ... shouldn’t he be saying at least 4 words by now? I try to read to him daily (that is when he doesn’t run away from me or tear the book out of my hands and throw it on the floor), I talk to him constantly narrating everything I do, while we sit and eat I point things out (food, light, window, floor, ...

My six month old to be is starting to sit but still warbles to down after a minute or two. He also isn’t rolling over and I fear this has to do with him not having the strength to do so since l tummy time is limited for him due to him painful(dramatizing) hating being in his tummy. Should I be concerned, has anyone been through something similar and have tips?
My 3 year old step-daughter lives with me and her father and has been for 2.5 years now. Her mother has been in and out of her life off and on but she now sees her every other weekend and since this started consistently about 5 months ago my step-daughter has regressed in potty training, talking, and maturity. She has a lot of anxiety and anger since our time sharing of every other weekend with... More
