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?
I’ve been trying for months to teach my now 15 month old how to use a spoon but he either tosses it aside and continues to use his hands or takes the spoon and chews the handle. I haven’t pushed it and just let him play with the spoon but as he’s getting older I know I really need to let him know that we use silverware and teach him how to use utensils. Any advice? What’s worked for you?
I’m a first time mom and I need serious help! I had a premie and she absolutely hates tummy time! I have tried everything! She hates laying on your chest on a play mat on a c pillow everything. I’ve tried putting toys out and a mirror still nothing. I’ve even tried putting a warm rice bag on her back to kinda stable her. She will not lift her head up or push in any sort of way. She is 6 months ... More
When my toddler was 12 months he was saying “uh oh” then over time he stopped saying it. Later he said “mama” then over time he stopped saying that. Now at 14 months he says “apboo” (apple), nevertheless I was under the impression that once they know a word they would continue to use it and build their vocabulary by adding more words but my little one seems to only use one word at a time; is th...

Hi everyone, I am really worried about my 9 month old. He will be 10 months next week and he is not bearing weight on legs nor stands. I know his legs have strength because he kicks and moves his legs all the time but when I try to make him stand he just lifts them up. He is also not sitting unsupported. At his 9 month check up his pediatrician said she wants to have him evaluated and I’m reall... More
Hi! My son was just diagnosed with a speech and developmental delay. He is 20 months and only says a few words. He also has a little bit of a developmental delay because he can’t feed himself with a spoon yet, drink from a straw, or drink from an open cup. Does anyone have any experience with this type of delay? How long does it take to catch up? Did they seem to be at the same level as the oth... More
My daughter always wants to stand or sit up but she doesnt have strength to do either yet... what can i do?
I’m SO tired of saying “no! Not for eating!” It’s literally everything... especially paper products. I gave him a board book while in the car when we arrived to our destination I discovered he’d taken a whole bite out of it! He’s 10 months and I just want to know if it’s normal and if it will stop soon...
There’s so many informations, books, opinions, etc out there. I just wanted to hear from other parents, your experiences, on starting to teach your child to talk & if you could recommend books, websites & other resources, it would be very helpful. Some would suggest to keep talking, singing, reading & interacting with your child. Others include sign language. Which one works best fo... More
Ok so since November I have been pretty depressed and I'll be honest, I didn't really know it til now. But I've been on serious auto pilot concerning everything, even my 18 month old. We wake up and I have basically stuck her in front of the tv till it's time for sleep again. Something clicked into place and I realized this. I'm taking the tablet away except for an hour a d... More
