Thanks. I read the link. I was also interested in stealthmode's comment on "Brookfield Zoo Nursing Protest" I see the article was posted yesterday and the writer comments the incident happened "this last week." I wonder when the nursing protest is planned for.
There's no magic pill, but we moved the kids out of our beds at 6 months and 4 months. They were just too wiggly. They did sleep better overall in their own rooms IME. But, the next few months I was still up alot. 1-4 times a night. I guess it's just one of those things you kinda accept as a new parent. I had my husband take the weekends and that really helped alot. When we were ready (we tried at 9 months with both of them, it worked for DS, but it didn't work...
I'm not on facebook. Could you tell us what, when, where, etc? P.S. It always bothered me that Brookfield does a milking exhibit on the goats, but throws out the milk and does not give it to the kids (baby goats)(They said it wasn't clean when I asked). And, they give the kids formula from the start (It's healthier! And, you never really know how much the kid is getting, so we just give the kid formula so we know they'll grow well!!!!! That is what I was told.) ...
The mom gets alot of the "blame" for spit ups, too fast flow, over active let-down, or whatever. But sometimes, it's just the way baby is. My 1st was a constant spitter. Every feed, every time and alot of it. It didn't stop til he was mostly on solids. It did slowly taper off, but his last spit up was at about 15 months! My 2nd never spit up once. I'm not kidding, not once. Why? Who knows. They both were 100% BF and gained nicely and developed well and...
Heys shells_n_cheese! I remember you from my due date club (s)! And, infact, we're going to start trying again next April! So, maybe we'll be in thee due date club together again. It's interesting that the first 2 have a 2 year gap, but the next one will have closer to a 3 year gap! It gets harder with each kid. Like you, DD is mostly sleeping through the night. But, every once in a while when she doesn't, it's crazy. But, I completely feel that our family...
Celebrate! Maybe you're already PG! And, he's reacting to that! Happy future sleeping!
OK. Becca, I've written posts before where everyone told me I was wrong and it wasn't what I wanted to hear, let me tell you! But, as one of the posters had said, I did ask and I must have been questioning myself at least a little to have asked at all. So, take what you've heard here and take most of it to heart. Good luck and maybe we can all try to be kind to Becca. We all are trying to find our way through this crazy world of parenting and do the best...
My son was ready sooner, about 2 3/4. But at that age you had to get up and help him. Also, he was a little scared to go by himself, so even after he didn't need physical support, he still called out to us and we had to escort him. (He's in his own room.) Only recently, about 3 1/4, has he been able to go by himself. And, he needed encouragement every step of the way. Also, make sure you start limiting fluids closer to bedtime and make sure they potty right...
AWESOME! You'll have to tell us what the school says when you give it to them.
Truly, forgive yourself. We all have things we wish we would have done differently in life and in childrearing. I know I do. Find something new for just you and DS and make that your special ritual. I know people who have a special gesture or word that means I love you to each child. Maybe you could start something like that. Or a special ritual, like a Saturday monring all your own. Or at bedtime the child can pick any topic and you talk about it. ...
