We have not vaccinated and lived in California, Arizona, and Texas where getting the exemption papers seemed to be easy. I've just moved to Oregon and am having a bit of a difficult time finding what I need here.
I'm not sure exactly what to do anymore. DS will fuss and whine but will NOT go to sleep until around 12-1!!! >_<
I've tried starting at different times, I breastfeed, I rock him, I've held him close, I've tried giving me a sippy cup (milk or water) and he just throws it at the wall...
I'm starting to run out of patience. PLEASE give me any advice - tia.
I'm not sure where the line is drawn between babe and toddler - but my son has seriously been early on EVERYTHING (Teething at 4 months.
Walking at 7). And I have been told by everyone and reading everywhere that once they are stable at walking that it's a good time to start. He learns ridiculously fast too...
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has potty trained their child early? And what age they were/what you did etc.
My son is 12.5 months and when he pinches/bites/hits me I pretend to cry for a little bit and then grab his hand and lightly brush my face with it and say "gentle" "love mommy" etc.
When he does it to dogs/cats/other people/other babies I grab his hand and gently say "no, be gentle" and call me crazy but I proceed to fully and extremely to every extent explain to him why he needs to be gentle (this is partly to develop his speech better too haha) but it could also be...
We co-sleep but the night feedings are driving me insane - I have seriously not had a span of more then 3 hours of sleep for over a year now.
DS is 12 months and still feeds AT LEAST 3-4 times a night. I NEED sleep - I am just no longer functioning AT ALL.
Any suggestions on what I can do???

Texas is so easy to get your exemption form. I sent my information away and had the forms in exactly a week. I never needed to use them, but I got them anyway, just in...
