Has anyone used it?
I’ve been pumping my milk and have been giving it to my 3 1/2 month old baby in a bottle. I’ve been doing this since he was 8 weeks old but now I feel like it’s draining me out and I feel like I can do it anymore so I decided to switch to formula. So while doing research I read that you’re supposed to boil water to make prepare the formula and then cool it to the desired temp. I also read that ... More
I worry when he puts things in his nose (usually food) that they will get stuck and he will get an infection. Any advice?
Hi - were about to transition our son, 18 months old, to a toddler bed. We were considering two different rail options - the $100 wood rail that goes with the convertible crib and looks nice OR the $30 rail that is compatible with any crib and doesn’t look as nice. How long do toddlers actually use the rail? Do we really need to get the nice looking rail? Also, any tips for transitioning to t... More
I want to thank the moms who took the time to reply to my previous post ❤️ I have reclined the car seat & my baby has not thrown up! 😁 However, he will be facing forward soon, & I’m worried that once he does he will begin throwing up again 😩 I’m curious as to how other moms have handled this. Do I keep the seat reclined while facing forward? I have to read the manual again & see if ... More
So my little one has been cruising since 8 months; he’s now 10 months and taking steps without holding on, with this comes a lot of falling and hitting his head on the hard wood floors and furniture. It really freaks me out when he hits his head. Most of the time he just picks himself up and tries to walk again and it doesn’t even phase him but I still worry. For the longest time I was having h... More
You guys...tonight we caught our 9 month old trying to escape her crib. She had lifted herself to where her torso was up on the rail and one wrong move...she would have flipped over the rail and crashed into the floor. Her crib is on the absolute lowest level...practically on the ground. The rail is typical height. There's nothing in her crib with her...just a fitted sheet. Nothing even clo... More
My stepson is 3 and recently he’s started using the toilet full time, he’ll wake up constantly during the night then want to get up at 5 or 6. If he’s not watched constantly he’ll destroy everything, so we’re not comfortable with him having free roam of the house while we’re asleep. We tried having his door open a bunch of times but he always gets up and wonders around and he’ll get up as soon ... More
How did you teach your child to use the stairs in your home? What age did you begin teaching? My baby is a year old and we have gates at the bottom and top of our carpeted stairs but I’m getting antsy to teach him how to safely use the stairs (with my supervision of course). Just wondering how young I can start this. He has been walking for about a month now.
So initially I was against getting crib bumpers due to the risk of SIDS but my 10 month old tosses and turns when he sleeps and bumps his head on the crib rails and headboard multiple times throughout the night, often he hits his head so hard he wakes himself up. It happens EVERY night! I’m worried about him hurting his head and also concerned that he’s not sleeping well because he keeps waking... More
My 3 year old step-kid is getting to the point where “stranger danger” is VERY important. They’re very shy and refuse to play with other kids...just the parents or other random adults. They will strike up a conversation with any passing adult and even try to open the door when people come knocking. This is TERRIFYING for my spouse and I. How do you handle stranger danger with a kid that young ... More

How do you guys keep your babies from attacking the Christmas tree? Our daughter is 8 months old and is into EVERYTHING and I'm trying to figure out how to keep the tree and her safe. I've seen people put gates around there's, but that looks so bleh to me. Any suggestions?
My 2yo recently learned how to open the door. There is 5 adults that live in the home and then him. When one leaves they don’t always lock the deadbolt and he likes to escape. He is super quite and sneaky. Is there a door alarm that one would recommend? I was looking on amazon but nothing really grabbed my attention. Potentially one that’s super loud and annoying. (He doesn’t like loud noises).
Does anyone have any advice for toddlers escaping cribs and over gates? My son isn't old enough to transition to a toddler bed, but he climbs out of his crib. He's tall and very strong. We took the side of the crib off and put a round gate around the crib. It worked for a while, even though he always ended up sleeping on the floor, but now he climbs over every baby gate. Now he just has... More
