my oldest DD was completely potty trained at 18 months, then her little sister came along a month later and she just "un-potty trained"! It was crazy and frustrating, but in the end, we just stuck her back in diapers and let her lead the way.  She took about another year to get back to being potty trained, but she still wears "good-nights" at night because she still pees the bed about half the time and she's now 3 yrs old.  Potty training is not a quick thing,...
My oldest DD didn't crawl until about 11 months and didn't walk until 14 months.  She's just really tall and she was a pretty heavy baby so it wasn't easy for her, and I didn't push it.  It happened when it happened and there was nothing wrong with her.  She's 3 now and she is one of the best ballerinas in her ballet class and she is a super smarty-pants, so she's totally fine and no one cares now when she started crawling/walking ;)
My family is ill with pertussis.  My 1 year old and 3 year old have both been treated with antibiotics, but still sick.  I am going to the doctor today to get antibiotics because I now have it HORRIBLY.  The pedi told me the antibiotics are not to make us better, just to keep us from spreading the disease.  My question is how do we feel better?! I seriously feel like I've inhaled fire.  The girls are having breathing trouble, the coughing is just terrible and painful....
I haven't read all the replies yet, but I though I would share while I have a second.   My DD went through the EXACT same thing.  She was 19 pounds at 16 months, but she was also very tall so she looked just sooooooo skinny.  She refused to eat... pretty much ever.  And what she did allow into her mouth she spit back out.  She was getting pretty anemic from not eating.  After only 4 ounces of weight gain between 9 months and 16 months, I got her into ECI services...
I was pregnant when DD1 was 10-19 months old and she did have looser poo from about 13 months on.  I don't think it's a problem.  Annoying though, lol.  I had colostrum with both pregnancies starting right around 3-4 months.
16 months is still really young.  He probably really depends on the mama milk. He's still a baby, I don't think there is any reason to worry about where you are when he needs to nurse.  Personally, I don't think there is any problem nursing in public at any age, but especially when they are young enough that they still NEED the calories and nutrition I wouldn't even give it a second thought.   I am just now, at 20 months, limiting DD2 and that's just for my own...
Famom, thank you so much for taking the time to share so much. I felt tears coming to my eyes just I'm not alone and someone knows exactly what it is like. Your post was so helpful!
Our 3 year old has a long list of allergies, most of which just give her a rash.  However, Dogs, Guinea Pigs, Peanuts and Eggs all send her into respiratory failure and major hives.  We have known about most of her food allergies since she was an infant and we have learned to deal with them fairly well.  Now, we have severe animal allergies and it's just a little more difficult and exhausting.  She had a reaction to a guinea pig on Thursday night which didn't end...
DD2 is 19 and a half months old.  For the last 4 months, ECI has been seeing her for some eating and weight loss problems.  So, today they decided she is eating and gaining well enough to be dismissed from occupational therapy ( YAY!!!). However, now they want to start speech therapy and they want to send out a behavioral specialist to work with her sleeping issues (she still gets up 5-6 times a night screaming even though she's been night-weaned for 6 months now).  I am...
Well, I did it! I cooked for a few hours today and we now have about 2 and a half weeks of food in the freezer and fridge!  I can't believe it, it only took about 2 and a half hours (although I am waiting on the roast still).
