My husband is buying us a huge SUV so size of car seat is no longer an issue. What is your recommendation for a great convertible car seat?
Any advice on how to get out with my 4 toddlers using public transportation? My boys are bored out of their skulls once they get out of school and I haven’t a clue on how to safely manage all them solo using public transportation. I have terrible social anxiety especially when I go out with my kids. Seems like all eyes are on me and I dare not make a mistake with anything while out with my boys... More
Please help!!!! We have 13 month old twins and it is time to convert them from the infant car seat to one that can be rear and forward facing. Our SUV is not huge. Are there great car seats that are sleeker and more streamlined? Also, can these car seats be installed without the base but with the seatbelt? Thank you so much!!!!!
Ok, so I admit we have completely failed at getting our twins do the “self soothe” thing. At almost 2.5 years bedtime still involves rocking, cuddling and reading 100 books. In reality, because of my work and our daycare situation it’s always been difficult to keep routine consistent. Anyway, I’m over it taking hours to put them down ... has anyone dealt with this with toddlers??? Any advice? P... More
I have 2 1/2 year old twin boys. They are my first. Has anyone experienced their twins being sick every two weeks? It’s becoming very stressful as I am always either missing work or having to find last minute babysitter. They are in daycare (for about 10 months now) and everyone tells me it’ll get better I just would like to when? Not only is stressful for me but I am sure it has to be miserabl... More
This is so wild. What a complicated and strange situation all around. I didn’t even know this could happen! https://www.cbc.ca/radio/thecurrent/the-current-for-december-5-2017-1.XXX-XXXX/how-a-surrogate-twin-pregnancy-turned-into-a-custody-battle-over-unrelated-babies-1.XXX-XXXX
We are a bit limited on places to go because I cannot hold them at the same time myself. I've thought about going places like the pool but they are just mobile enough to be dangerous without another adult with me. Looking for fun places to get them out of the house while their dad is at work! So far they love having lunch in the park and going to the store. We plan on story time at the libr... More
So I have twin boys that are 11 months old. I have one that drinks out of sippy cups fine. He does well with both the straw and 360 cups. My other one just chews on everything. He can drink out of a straw when we are at a restaurant but chews on the straws of sippy cups. Any suggestion of a cup he might like. I have been trying since they are 6 months old and he still just wants to chew or blow... More
We have tried everything from timers, going with nothing on, go straight underwear, pull-ups --- pretty much everything. And nothing is working. They don't seem to care that they sit in their own mess - so that hasn't worked like I thought either. Any suggestions? We are at our wits end!
I have battled constipation with my 2 year old identical boys for months. I have tried so many things and nothing is helping keep them regular. They drink plenty of water (and milk), are active throughout the day, eat a (mostly) balanced diet. I've tried all different kinds of fruits and fruit juice, probiotics, raisins/prunes, homeopathic constipation drops, yogurt with probiotics, and j... More
My identical twin daughters are fighting like crazy these days. They are fighting over the same toys (even if there are multiple books, they always want the one the other has - it isn't one particular book) They also seem to be very jealous of one another for mine or my husbands attention. They are biting, hitting, and standing on top of each other!!! I have been trying the technique of say... More
I have two twin girls almost 11 months. They usually fall asleep with a bottle then I put them in their crib. Any suggestions on how to have them fall asleep without the bottle and in their crib🙈 I know I probably should have done this months ago but it was difficult and now I’m wondering if it’s too late! Thanks mommies and daddies for your help
I breastfed for 10 months, and weaned off of it about 6 weeks ago. Since then, it’s been nonstop colds, fevers, sniffles, even a round of bronchitis and sinus infection. (Babies are in daycare full time.) Did anyone else experience a “rebound” phase like this, of constant illness once the breastfeeding ended? How long will this last?
I really need some advice in regards to potty training my three year old twins. They were premature, born three months early, so they’ve been a bit behind. Which is expected. That being said, I feel like they are ready to learn; they tell me when they’re dirty or sometimes even ask to go potty, they just don’t want to continuously do it. I’ve been trying to potty train them, but it ends with th... More
Hi everyone, I know I asked a similar question a while ago but the closer I get to my trip the more anxious I am getting! This coming Monday we are driving to Florida with my 4.5month old twins. Does anyone have any tips or advice on changing/feeding/entertaining them in such close quarters?? I just don't want to experience an 18+hour nightmare :/ thanks in advance!

At the time this was all my high risk was looking until I went to get second opinion from another high risk. Around 26 weeks the new high risk discovered that not... More
