I’m looking for a bassinet that I could also use to have by my bedside but don’t know how safe they are when it comes to overnight sleep. During the day I’d be up so baby could sleep there and I’d be aware but is it built to handle all night sleep?
I go back to work in 9 days from my maternity leave and I am exhausted and my Job is pretty demanding on a mental and social level. My husband works from 9am-12pm only and my schedule will be full time from 8-530 sometimes 6-630. He hasn’t helped with the baby this entire leave because he said I’m home. I am starting to really hate him and not sure how I am supposed to juggle a newborn,work fu... More
Since I was pregnant my baby would be quiet, no movement til 10pm at nights which peaked at 2am or 3pm. After giving birth and trying everything the nurses and doctors taught me, at 7 months was the only time I can remember she went to bed at 10 and slept til 5am. She is always wide awake and when she is ready to sleep she gets cranky. While she is awake she will sit in the dark quiet or making... More
Hello. So my 2 months old screams his head off like he is hurt or something even though he is fed, burped, and changed, bathed etc.. the only way he will stop is if my husband and I keep a bottle in his mouth. The second we move it when he is finally asleep he wakes up and cries. We are at our wits end please help me. Or give me some ideas as to why you think this is going on.
My one month old baby gags and coughs and usually has wet burps. I thought i was colic at-first because he kept us up at night but am giving him colic drops and it doesn’t seem to work. His stomach gurls a lot and he licks his lips like he’s thirsty he been gaining a lot of weight so i dont know if this is reflux. But when he cries he calms downs and then suddenly scream cries. What should i do... More
Hello all! Currently all my children ages 5,3, and newborn are sharing a room with each other. My 5 yr old and 3 year old have rare sleeping issues that could be disturbing to the newborn (5 year old sleep walks/talks and 3 year old fights sleep due to fear of dark that flares up) Our nighttime routine is pretty solid. Dinner, clean up time, bath/ book time and then bed. I try to get them in... More
Good hello everyone! My LO is currently 10 weeks old and will be starting daycare in 2 weeks. While I think my husband and I picked one of the best daycares in the area, I am having a lot of anxiety about him going. He just feels so little and knowing he won’t get 1:1 attention is hard for me to deal with. Any reassuring thoughts or suggestions for getting through this separation and making ... More
We welcomed baby no.2 about a week and a half ago, I was looking forward to ebf since it’s what we did with our first, but things have been a little different this time around. First of all we had problem getting baby to latch at all. She would just scream (not cry, scream!) whenever I brought nipple close to her, it was really bad at first but it’s gotten better. Except that then she started... More
Good hello everyone! Any sleep training methods/books you all would recommend? My LO is 7 weeks old. From birth, we have been working on sleep training and getting him to understand the difference between day and night and sleeping in his bassinet. We were making progress but at 6 weeks, he went through a sleep regression and no longer wants to sleep in his bassinet. If we give in and have him... More
Hi all! My LO is 6 weeks old. He was beginning to develop a schedule and napping either in his swing or his bassinet for 3-4 hours, playing about 30-45 minutes. He hit 6 weeks and that has all fallen apart. He is constantly doing hunger cues and feeding every 1.5 hour. The pediatrician recommended feeding him 1 ounce per hour since his last feeding. We are feeding him appropriately but after t... More
Hello everyone. My husband and I live in a one bedroom apartment in Glendale. The rent is $1600. For now we cant move out of here for several reasons. Now I am 6 weeks pregnant and I am worried is it ok to share the bedroom with newborn baby?? Has anyone done that?
Is it just me that get super annoyed when other people want to touch my baby? Someone on the elevator in my apt building asked to touch my daughter and I said no. She looked so offended. I didn’t have time or patience to explain why. My mother in law who was with us said I overreacted. I don’t think I did.
My LO is 7 weeks, turning 2 months on Saturday. It’s been a struggle getting things done around the house and having a second to myself as my LO is only comfortable being held or on top of mom or dad. We have tried the swing and longest he will stay without crying is a few minutes unless asleep. I have tried a bouncer chair which he cries as soon as he’s put in. We also have him play on his bab...

My 11 week old won’t sleep more than 50 minutes unless she is lying next to me. I’ve tried everything, different swaddles, putting down awake, putting down drowsy, putting down asleep, rocking, feeding to sleep, giving a bottle, a pacifier, swaddling, not swaddling, spacing out feedings. using a shirt with my smell, bassinet, a warm heating pad- everything. She will not sleep in the crib at nig... More
