That's pretty much how both of ours dropped their naps. They were a little young though (18 months). Bedtime kept getting pushed further and further back until it was at 10pm or so but the next day they would wake up regular time or even earlier and be super cranky for most of the day. It was terrible. So we just skipped them a for a couple of days or so and within about a week they had dropped them. Sure they were each super cranky and tired by 5. But we had dinner, bath...
When she was 15 months or so, my daughter knocked over a cup of just poured hot tea. She had 2nd degree burns on her arm (just above and below the elbow) and her hand. The burn specialist told us to use plain coco butter on her once everything healed. You can't see the marks on her hand anymore. But she will have a scar by her elbow. It's raised and faded now but it will always be there. At the time he said if we wanted once everything healed, we could try a pressure...
I feel ya. Just had a similar "issue" with my almost two year old. He throws things, hits and bites. We had a childcare situation where one of the other children was doing all these things and getting time outs. I feel that my son is too small still to understand what a time out is (another topic entirely) and we ended up enrolling him in a full day program at the Montessori school he was already at. He stopped hitting and biting. Throwing, we're still working on but two...
I used a Gaia midwife for my son's pregnancy in 2012. Of course she only does home birth now, but Julie Toner was wonderful. (However I didn't care for NUMC at the time.) If you call the main number for Gaia they should be able to direct you to someone who takes your insurance and is closer to where you are geographically. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
We tried reading to DD when she was very small and she did the same thing. She was much more interested in books as chew toys rather than sitting for a story. We started reading to her again when she was about 18 months, when she could sit for a little longer and really look at everything. Now at 28 months they are part of her bedtime routine and her potty time (we'll read her a story or two so she will sit a little longer). She'll bring over books randomly throughout...
My hubby is also a SAHD and we have been looking around for a group also but haven't really found one. DD just turned 2 and we have another due at the end of the month. We're out east in Ronkonkoma. We ended up putting DD in a Montessori program two days a week and gymnastics once a week just for both of them to have something else to do weekly. We thought maybe there would be another dad in either group but so far no go. I'd love to know if you find anything.
Thanks to both of you! Met with my Midwife on Wednesday. She said not to worry that baby is probably not kicking the scar. She thought it was baby burrowing deeper into my pelvis and the scar was just stretching out a bit more. We'll see. Of course since I asked baby has pretty much stopped doing whatever s/he was doing. We'll see how it goes.   Thanks again!
Hello ladies. I'm not sure if this post belongs here or in the general pregnancy forum.   I am currently 35 weeks with #2 and planning a VBAC with a very supportive midwife. Lately baby is kicking what feels like my scar. It's getting more and more uncomfortable. Anyone have any experience with this? At my last M/W appointment baby was head down and very low and from what I can tell still is (DD was the same way by this point). I'm really don't want to end up with...
Hey there. We're doing the gradual approach with our just 2 year old. We're expecting #2 sometime in early March so we're not rushing anything. I would love for DD to just have the idea down before baby comes so that's not a struggle later. Of course we're in a different situation but I totally expect regression after baby is born. We felt a gradual approach was better than trying to "force" her into anything.     But in the end, you know what you want to do. Go...
  Instead of being frustrated and telling him to go faster, praise him when he keeps up. Like instead of giving a loud cheer if he did what you wanted him to, try a quieter "good job" or just smiling at him. Children feed off of how we're feeling even if we don't intend to, so projecting all that negative stuff, by over encouraging him to move faster, it might be making him want to do the opposite. So try being a quieter cheerleader was my suggestion. It works a little...
