Just curious what your thoughts are on age difference between siblings. I have two very different experiences personally. My brother is 18 months younger than me and my sister is 18 years younger than me so I have two dramatically different spectrums. My daughter is an only child and she’s about to turn 5 next month. My husband and I have debated about having another child but I’m curious if sh... More
My son is 16 months and will be 2 when this one is born.
We have a 2.5 year old, and recently had a new baby. We were told that toddlers have an adjustment period to new babies, so we expected some behavioral difficulties. What we didn't expect was a sleep regression. Our toddler wakes up 1-2 times a night, every night. It's been going on for about 2 months now (since right before the baby was born). He used to be a pretty solid sleeper, but... More
My son just turned 2 in November, & my husband and I are wanting to try to get pregnant after the first of the year, but every time we bring our son around our friends with babies, he gets too jealous and sometimes angry because we’re holding another baby. So is it a good time to bring another baby in the picture?
I know it's a little soon... My son is 9 months old... But I've already been thinking about wanting another baby. I don't think I would go through with actually trying for another one right now or anytime soon, but I was just wondering when all of you decided to have another? Like what is the age gap between? If you had children less than a year apart, how did you handle it? What ar... More

Just downloaded this app and super excited to see some STA mommies here! I have 3 toddlers ages 5, 4, and 2! Life is really hectic, I went through a long period of major depression and recently started medication a couple months ago. It has helped IMMENSELY! There are still days I feel like i just can't do it, but I pull through. Does anyone else have multiple kids close in age? What strugg... More
Very excited but also nervous. I have 3 &5 year old boys and now expecting a baby girl. anyone have any tips on adjusting from 2 to 3 easily with little kids? Wanting to make sure my beautiful boys don’t feel left out. Love my babies! Any tips are appreciated :)
My toddler (almost 2.5) has been acting out occasionally since right before her baby sister was born. She goes to daycare most days and I have been getting reports of kicking, hitting, aggressive hugging, and even hair pulling. I know some of this is normal, but I feel like it’s every day that I go to pick her up now that I get some kind of negative report. She has even tried to be aggressive o... More
I have an 18 month old and I need help teaching him to be nice and gentle with his new brother. Little brother is only a week old. Today big brother threw his sippy cup at little brothers head. Thank goodness he is ok, but I really want to avoid anything like this in the future. Please help!!
Hello! While not here to completely decide my future, I do want to get some thoughts on a matter. I have a 3 yo step-kid with my spouse. That kid is the only kid in our family and the other side... as in my spouse and their ex-wife only had the one kid, the ex-wife hasn’t had another kid, and we haven’t had another kid. So it’s just the one. But both sides of the family are now talking about h... More
Help!! My 4yr old used to be the "perfect" little sleeper (8am-8pm, no issues) since bringing home her new little sister (who is now 3mths old) she now struggles to get to sleep, sometimes she is still awake at 10pm and now she also wakes up every night around 2am to come into our bed and is sometimes awake for 2hrs. As an already sleep deprived mumma, I'm coming to my Witt's ... More
Hello parents! Just wondering how do you discipline your kiddos? I have a 2 yr old son and 4 yr old daughter. I’m loosing it with them, they’re good kids but she’s so bossy and hits her brother for everything and he just wants to play with her but he doesn’t understand her. I tried talking to her, putting her on time out and ehhh so many other things and I’m about to give up 😭😭😭 help please?
My husband and I will have a 2 year old in December. That being said, I’m a SAHM and we are considering having another baby. I’m curious how you manage being up all day with a toddler and a newborn and then up all night with a baby. How do you manage taking a 2 year old to activities with a small baby that needs to nap or eat? We aren’t surrounded by a “village” for help and would be mostly... More
I wasn't sure whether or not I wanted to have another baby, but biology would have it that yes I am sure, right now please. Finances are not ideal, my partner loves to dance around the idea of marriage, and has been since I was pregnant with our first son. So, obviously there's a few things we'd like to do before we expand our family further. Any ideas on how to shush up my biologic... More
My husband and I have a 1 year old son and just found out we are pregnant with a second baby, this wasn’t expected. I want to know how to make sure my son doesn’t feel left out and unloved now that he’ll have a little sibling. Both my husband and I had just set our minds on only having our son but I guess life had other plans.
Im about 30 wks pregnant with my second and my first (22 months old) is starting to become very protective/possessive of me around my husband. I stay at home with her, so I'm not sure if that comes into play. But at times she will hardly let my husband talk to me let alone touch me, without saying "no my mommy" or something like that. We all eat dinner together, sometimes they hav... More
My 2 and a half year old daughter was getting potty trained the last couple of months of my pregnancy. She was doing so well!! I actually wanted to start earlier in the year because she was going at home but we had to wait till she was in the older class...due to the policy at day care. But lately after having her brother all the progress has been thrown out the window and gotten soooo much wor... More
