Thank you so much for the comments everyone! The support and advice have been more helpful than you can imagine. It's great to have a community of like-minded mamas I can turn to. This week we tried taking him three days in a row (W, TH, F) instead of the usual MWF, and my husband took him today and yesterday. The improvement was amazing. He only cried twice yesterday, and he didn't cry at ALL today! I can't express how happy this makes me. Wednesday was horrible, and I...
Please help! My son will be three in January, and we are having our second child in early January. The discussion of preschool has come up many times, but I was resistant to the idea for a long time. I've always stayed home with him, and we are embracing natural parenting. We still cosleep, and we have a great attached relationship.

I currently have the IUD Mirena which was put in exactly a year ago after my first child was born. I hate it. I'm one of the few who feel that a period is normal and I want to have one. The Mirena prevents it and because I breastfed for the first year I've only had one since he was born!! My emotions feel out of whack and I want it...
We had this exact same problem and we also have a queen mattress and box spring on the floor. Our solution has been to side car his crib turned into a toddler bed. At first he noticed the change so we put an egg crate on top of his crib mattress to make it more comfortable like ours. He has no problem sleeping in the side car bed and if he wakes up in the night and wants to snuggle he can crawl right on over! Good luck with the sex life! I, too, was and still am a new...
