This post is going to be long so i apologize... She will say dada,momma,uh oh, wow. Yeah. Thats about it for the most part. She does however (when she wants to) mimic the sounds of words. She will say bye bye but not actually say it. She will say "all done" as it sounds but not actually say all done. She is in speech therapy twice a week. Sometimes it goes well and she participates a... More
My daughter turns 5 over the summer so she’s eligible to start kindergarten in the fall. I’m now curious whether she might benefit from another year of preschool instead. What could your child do right before they entered K? Read and write? Just recognize letters and write only a few words? Would be helpful to also hear from other summer birthday parents.
My daughter is 2, she turned two in September. She says dada, sometimes mamma, she says yay, claps, bye bye, hi .. and listens to commands like “no, come here, stop, high five, good job” and she reacts to those things the appropriate way you’d except from a toddler. (Also waves) But she Doesn’t talk like I guess she should? Everyone online says she should be talking more and that if she’s not t... More
My son is 11 and half months (he will be one in December) and he is still not pulling himself up to stand. I’m so worried. I did take him to his Doctor and she told me not to worry about it, but I’m still concerned. It really bothers me so much! It’s very hard to see that he’s still not standing.
We are wondering if our son is ready for potty training or not. He just turned 2, 2 months ago. His diaper is staying dry for a pretty long time and often does not need to be changed after a nap. But he does not talk much (he is getting a speech therapist soon) so I’m worried he won’t tell us when he needs to go. He also has never given any cues he is going to the bathroom and never let us know... More
Hi parents, my 8 months old son is crawling 😂, and my daughter never crawled, she went straight to walking, so I don't have any experience with crawling. Whenever I look at him doing it, I'm freaking out that he will hit an edge of a wall or a corner of any sort and hurt his head. Any ideas how long this phase will last? My heart can't take it lol. And any tips on what I could do to... More
My son will be one in a couple of weeks and I am looking forward to start the transition to no longer breastfeed him. Right now he nurses about four or five times a day for about five minutes. He is great at eating solid foods and does not nurse to sleep. I am not sure how to transition him to cows milk (has never really taken a bottle) and stop breastfeeding him. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
My daughter turned 1 last month and still isn’t even sitting. She’s in physical therapy but they don’t think she needs it often so they only work with her once a month. I’m worried and wondering if anyone else has a baby that wasn’t sitting at 1 and what they did? She can sit for minutes by herself but then she screams the entire time and then just gives up. TIA!
Our baby is 16 months and has a convertible crib. Just wondering when to transition her to the “toddler” stage. She sleeps through the night with only cry-outs when she can’t find her pacifier (separate problem) and sleeps with a blanket but no pillow. Our second is due Feb 1st and I was just wondering if it would be better to try the transition now rather than after the new baby comes.
My son is turning 2.5 this weekend. Yesterday, he finally learned he can get out of his crib and cut out napping entirely all in one day. Day 2 and we're down the same path. I'm a sahm and really need that time to myself to recharge. How do you deal with naps being dropped entirely and transitioning to a toddler bed all in one shot? The way our door handles, are my only real option w... More
Hello! I’m concerned my little one may have a language delay. He says like 6-8 words clearly. But still a lot of babbling. Thoughts? IMPORTANT NOTE: I’ve been a stay at home mom, So it’s been just him and I for a long time, and not a lot of interaction with other kids
My LO is extremely verbal for her age. She is not yet 2 and can chatter on to me, herself or anyone about anything for hours on end. It is amazing! However I find myself forgetting that she is not even 2. Sometimes i think that my husband and I think that she understands more than she does and possibly expect too much her. I also think she knows what she is expected to say and does not understa... More
My 20 month old son still isn’t talking. He’s only said “Mama”, “Apboo” (apple), “uh oh”, he babbles and makes noises. My pediatrician keeps telling me my son will talk soon and that there’s no need to get him tested but I’m just not sure. I guess I just feel alone and wanted to read other parents’ experiences ... good and bad ... with this.
Only one small part of tooth has come for my baby (in front below).. no more teeth at all .. her gums are very hard.. should i worry that no more teeth yet?? For so many kids at this age 3-4 teeth pops out..
