I am 4’11 and have had to lower my son’s crib as he can pull himself up now (14 months). However in order to lay him down I’ve literally got to crush my abdomen and literally lift my feet off the ground 😅😖 How do pregnant moms do it?? I’m trying to have baby #2 and worried that it’ll be very difficult to lay my toddler safely down while he’s sound asleep and be pregnant at the same time🤰🏻 help!
When your going out of state with a toddler...do you bring your car seat with you? Like riding in an Uber or Lyft. I’m just dreading bringing my LO’s car seat with me. Seeing as I’ll be traveling by myself. That’s just a lot to carry. I’ve been looking online for traveling light weight car seats but so far I’ve only see travel booster seats. She’s one so that’s no going to work. Any suggestions... More
Whenever my daughter gets upset she throws herself back. I’ve told her not to do it, and explained to her she will get hurt; but as soon as she gets upset, she does it. She’s hurt herself in MANY occasions and will not stop. I have tried ignoring her, but honestly she’ll do it anywhere like on a concrete floor, or the edge of the couch or bed, so most of the time I find myself catching her befo... More
I was at the park with my young children and I witnessed some 10-12 year old boys engaged in what looked like serious bullying of another child. They were hitting him and he was sitting in silence. I wanted to say something but I wasn’t sure if it was my place to do so and also wanted to protect my own kids. What would you do in a situation like that?
I keep meaning to ask my OBGYN about this, but always forget! It doesn’t happen very often, but there’s been a couple times my 3 year old has come down pretty hard on my 31+ weeks pregnant belly! He’s sat down hard on it once and also stepped on the side of it once when I was laying down. Both times it hurt, but I’d always pay close attention and would be able to feel the baby moving around lik... More
My 9 month old started full time daycare mid-May. Since then I've seen some worrying things when I've come to pick him up. There were the scratches on his face a few times when I picked him up from daycare - nothing huge, but the scratches were almost touching his eye, that's how close they got. Another time there was an ink stain on his pants. The staff said nothing at every instan... More
So my 5mo daughter recently just started rolling from back to belly (yay!!) and I was curious to see when your LOs started sleeping on their belly? (or if they just never did). Also was wondering if she’s still able to wear a sleep sack if she’s rolling? We just weaned her off of her swaddle 2 weeks ago, just in time, and started putting her in a sleep sack to keep her warm.
My 22- month son fell from a pretty high part of the playground.. He caught himself but got gashes in his chin. No bumps on the head or noticeable scratches anywhwre else. I am concerned because he seems to be sleeping a lot . He acts normal, but seems to sleep more. Should this be concerning?
Anyone else feel their car is too small for car seat?? We upgraded to a multi year seat and it really fits snugly my front seat is uncomfortable for anyone over 5 ft and my son hates the angle it’s at ( loves dads truck tho). I know it’s not the end of the world just wondering if others are dealing with this
My toddler wanted to me to read to him and I was sitting at the couch but not completely sitting up so he came to sit on my lap and sat on belly instead. I’m six months pregnant. Should I be worried? I feel a bit crampy now, what should I watch out for?
At what age was your little one when you stopped sitting in the backseat with them? My son is 7 months and I still sit in the backseat with him, I don’t mind but I would like to be in the front enjoying the outside view and holding my husbands hand. It’s the little things I miss...
I was in a car accident and was rear ended. Luckily I didn’t have the kids with me an no one was injured. The car behind me was rear ended into me. All 3 cars involved were SUVs. I had my two convertible care seats in the car. My question is if I should get the car seats replaced. The insurance company didn’t think the car seats would need replacing but they were willing to replace if I see so... More
My daughter has been intentionally gagging herself with fingers in her throat for a few weeks. It’s kind of freaking me out. I know with a million percent certainty that she didn’t see this behavior and isn’t mimicking. She just started doing it. I get worried and kind of yell when she does it and then she laughs and does it again. I try to ignore her but I’m afraid she will induce vomiting. An... More
Hi everyone. We have always been taught that once baby is able to climb out of a crib to transition to a toddler bed for their safety, but our daughter is 19mo and it just feels too early still. Any tricks for stopping the climbing? Or do we just baby proof the holy hell out of her room and go to a toddler bed? Background: she sleeps with a VERY flat pillow and her crib mattress is all the way... More
