Seriously, best thread EVER. And I pee in the shower, there I said it. DH says he doesn't, but I know he does. Don't ask how I know, but I do.

We typically don't go to the ped unless there is something wrong since most well checks are for vaccinations and not much else. My sister-in-law and mother-in-law did work as OBGYN assistants and both have said that his pooping seems normal... And I'm sure it is, it...

By three, my son was capable of (more or less) walking with me. Not before, though. Anyway, I guess at 15 months I'd suggest looking for work-arounds. I hope you can find something that works for your family. -e It's one of the "problems" with...

It's considered "relatively safe" for humans, though it really would only make your stomach upset if you ingested it (from what I've heard). Anyhow, you can buy it over where the laundry detergent and rit dye is sold
My husband asked me if our son's poop schedule was normal and I told him the truth: I have no idea! There are some days where literally EVERY diaper during the day has at least a little poop in it. But most days he poops (even if only a tiny bit) about 8 times a day. Is this normal? How often/how many times do your little ones 'go'?

The problem is that he normally does this in the store and so I really need him to walk instead of sit or lay...but either way he's going to throw a tantrum... I'm also curious how people here handle tantrums in general...because I'm not sure how effective my tactics are lol.
I'm somewhat on the 'keep it to yourself' train, no matter how hard it may be. How close are you with her? If it were someone I was pretty close with, I would have no problem buying her a bottle of fenugreek and giving it to her a few days before the trip and just adding, "I know you're going to be pumping while you're gone, fenugreek helps with milk supply so if you take some now and all the way through your trip it may help your supply not go down so much". but again,...

If say, he asked for more chicken because he ate what he had but still had some veggies left or something, I would give...
My son, 15 months old, for the past few months has gotten this habit that we just can't shake. I know tantrums are normal, and we do what we can about them. But what he's doing is really REALLY getting to me. If you go to put him down on the floor after you've been holding him (I hold him often, but sometimes you just have to put the kid down!) as soon as his toes touch the floor he flings his body onto the floor (which makes it look as if you THREW him to the floor)...
