My family is taking our Disney trip soon and this will be my first time flying with my 7 month old. Any tips you can give me for the plane ride? Also, any tips for our stay at Disney World or the parks?
Going on a one week cruise that will also require a 4 hour flight. My 4yo has never flown or been on a boat, and I"m looking for pro-tips on packing and how to keep him entertained (that does NOT involve giving him a screen and then calling my job done). What do you wish you knew or brought with you? Can toddler take Dramamine?
I want to take my wife on a cruise with our one year old, and she is hesitant to do so due to being a light sleeper and not sure how our daughter will handle a vacation like that. She is nervous we won’t actually enjoy the vacation. Does anyone have suggestions on how to cope with nervousness, and how to prep the family for a cruise?
My 3yr old demands me to “watch this” or “ look at me!” Several x a day. Often it’s several x in a row too of doing the same thing. He is not starved for attention -only child. So what’s a clever or cute or effective way to respond after 5x in a row of “look mommy!” ???? Help wanted
Hi parents! Hope you’re having an awesome week with your loved ones! I need a few pointers. My son has definitely gotten into the tantrum phase. The usual stuff. Throwing himself on the floor, whining for every little thing, crying for every little thing. It’s overwhelming to say the least. I’m pretty sure he’s just working out how to communicate his feelings / emotions. But any pointers? I’m h... More
I need to transition my daughter into her crib. She started in a bassinet next to my bed.. and then we moved into a rock and play after about 2.5 months because she just slept better feeling more “secure” if you will. We tried to transition back to bassinet but she wakes up numerous times through the night, and still has a Moro reflex so she will jolt herself awake if she’s flat. We have tried ... More
My son is almost 15 months old. I don’t think he’s ready to start potty training quite yet but he might be interested. He always follows me to the bathroom when “mommy has to peepee”. Honestly I might just be nervous because he’s my first and I am clueless. I have no idea where to start! 1. how do I introduce the idea of potty training to him? 2. is it too early to start training boys at this... More
I am considering trying the Ferber method on my 8 month old. For those that have had success do you apply the method during nap time as well? Let’s say I put her down for her first nap 2/3 hours after she wakes up from night sleep, how long go I give her using the method if she doesn’t fall asleep? I would eventually like her to take 1/1.5 hr for her first nap and then 1.5/2.5 hr for her second... More
I have a 20 month old and a 4 month old. I haven’t had the courage to go out by myself with them. Any tips?
Any advice to make it enjoyable? lol Toys entertainment that aren't huge objects?! We are going to Orlando FL which is a 21/2 hr flight. Also, has anyone taken spirit airlines? I'm super nervous about flying. My parents bought the tickets and i appreciate/ grateful for it but people say this airline in particular isnt good. I'm pretty sure the only airline I've ever usedn in th... More
Well sickness is in the air here at my house! My 15mo son just got diagnosed with RSV and my 11yo has type A flu. They both have allergies and my daughter has asthma. The tamaflu they sent home for both children and they both have thrown up with it! It seems that if they eat before they take it that they are less likely to throw up. The drainage is causing the horrible cough which leads to thro... More
Lunch time hack: sprinkle a teaspoon of hemp seeds into the buttered bread of your LO’s grilled cheese (regular or vegan) sandwich. Also, use the end pieces for the sandwich and turn the dark side over (so it’s hidden from picky kids while covered in that melty cheese they all seem to love), now you’re not throwing two perfectly good pieces of bread into the trash!
Hi mamas! Daddy comes back from deployment in May after being gone since LO was 3MO. We want to start crib training once he is back (she will be 9MO) so mommy & daddy can have their alone time. BUT she has co-slept with me since birth. My question is should we get her a crib or should we get her a toddler bed in case she needs me for night comfort since she is so use to being next to me ...

I need advice regarding storage. My daughter loves to draw. She has tons of markers pencils and paints. I can figure out how to store those in bins but my struggle is with the art and sticker pads! They are oversized ( nowhere near 8.5x11) and I need them off the desk! They take up more than half the desk! How do I store the so she can access them it keep them neat and orderly?
