“The car seat broke into pieces in a 30 mph crash test commissioned by CNN, failing to meet the basic standards set by US regulators.” Some sellers are copying popular products like the Doona carseat/stroller and selling unsafe versions for a discount. https://apple.news/AC8k9ePq8Ssu7LxgrXvaAzg
My soon to be 4yr old is super friendly and although I really like that she’s social I need to figure out how to curb it somewhat. The problem is that she is way too friendly and informative with complete strangers, adults in particular. She waves and says hello to anyone and instantly starts up conversation. This scares the crap out of me for obvious reasons. Any helpful tips on how to go abou... More
My son is about to be 9 months old and he is constantly throwing himself back when he gets upset. If I sit him down and he doesn’t want that he will throw himself back and there will be occasions where it’s random and I’m not there to catch him. I’m scared for him because I feel if he keeps this up as he gets older he will end up hurting himself. Is there any way I can avoid this or teach him a... More
For some reason , every time we get in the car to go run errands or pretty much do anything, my kids act like wild children ! They don’t seem to get the importance of putting their seatbelts on. No matter how many times I tell them to buckle their seatbelts. They just take it off. And they’re arguing and fighting and making messes. This drives me CRAZY! I then lose it and yell at them. After do... 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
I have a 15 month old girl. Do you let your child sleep with her earrings . My mother in law came to visit and asked whether i take out her earrings at night. I said, no. Im originally from Africa so i slept with my earrings. My husband is white so its two different cultures. Baby sleeps through the night with her earrings in with no problems. Should I take them out?
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.
I have a 2 year old daughter and we’re thinking of getting her front facing car seat. I’m thinking of buying her the one4life which is coming out this October but it’s too pricey ($400-$600 I think). One4life car seat is for infant to big kid. It says it grows with your child up to 10 years. If I buy that car seat I already missed out the 2 years of the car seat. Do you think it’s worth it? A...

Has anyone gone through this; what kind of words did u use to discourage this behavior. She is always in the kitchen when we are cooking and won’t leave the stove top knobs alone. Anytime I try to talk about safety etc. she goes on about all the things in her view. She is 21months.
I read a really interesting article about putting together first aid kits designed to help during a mental health crisis. I thought it was such a great idea! Especially with depression and anxiety levels increasing in kids and teens. Here is a link to the article: https://www.cbc.ca/parents/learning/view/how-to-build-a-mental-health-first-aid-kit What are your thoughts? Would you put one tog... More
My baby is eight months old and she likes to sleep facedown and I’m worried that she’s going to smother her self .I have bought one baby breathing monitor but it was cheap and the alarm just kept going off on it. I need to find something that works.
I picked my LO from her daycare center on Friday and I noticed she had a bite mark on her face so I asked her teacher if she knew what happened and this seems like a bite mark, I was told by her teacher that she had no idea what happened and it doesn't seem like a bite mark it seems like she might have bumped her head. I then went and talked to the administrator and I was told by her that i... More
How often is your toddler injured at daycare? I don't mean major injuries. But it seems that it's a pretty regular occurrence that I get a phone call telling me another kid bit my son, or hit him on the head with a toy and he has a bump, etc. So, I'm just wondering how often is typical for a toddler to have "incidences" like that to warrant a phone call because there's a mark?
I get very bad anxiety when my in-laws watch the baby (they are in their 70’s). Despite the wAy that I feel I let them watch the baby (10 months old) anyway, and before I left the house I forgot to turn the stove off. During the 2 hours that I wAs gone no one noticed not even my husband. It wasn’t on high and nothing was really on it except the very edge of the pan, and the chicken got burnt a... More
Hi- my “little” guy is about to be 7 months old and he’s off the chart with height and weight. He currently has a jumperoo and LOVES it but he’s about to reach the weight limit. He can’t stand or walk yet. Does anyone know of any thing like a jumperoo for bigger babies?
Also, any recommendations about how to keep him cool during the ride. AC can take awhile to reach the back.
I used to be able to trim them in his sleep, but he wakes easily now. I could use some good tips and hacks!
We were at a splash pad and my son (2.5 yrs) was trying to climb up a turtle. I was watching from afar and didn’t notice that a small kid (maybe 10 months?) had crawled up right next to my son. I don’t think my son was hurting the other kid or anything but just trying to climb up the turtle. Then a mom came running in yelling “be careful with the baby!” Confused, that’s when I repositioned myse... More
