Thanks a lot!! I'm going to test out how hot it gets soon. The heaters cover wayyyy too much area in the room to be covered with furniture or I'd take that route.

I think it's addictive. My daughter's (22 months) behavior is infinitesimally better when there is NO tv whatsoever. We used to allow her to watch a dvd player on long car rides to keep her from...

Baseboard heater in toddler's room.

Hi there!

Anyone have baseboard heaters in their toddler's room (toddler is in floor bed)? This is our first year in this house and it only recently occurred to me this was a concern. I'm...

Thanks, I haven't tried reading while in the room in months. My being active has always seemed to get her excited, but it's worth a shot. My guilty pleasure is reading and if I could get away with...

Thanks!! She does not do well with rough play before bed! Perhaps after nap, but when she gets wound up, it takes a loooooooong time to unwind her.

Awesome suggestions, thank you all so much!

My own sleep needs are well-met these days now that she doesn't wake frequently, so my tiredness is a non-issue. But 1.5 hours seems like a terribly...

Laying with toddler until they're asleep..taking a loooong time!

Hello,

How long does it take your toddler to fall asleep, if you stay with them (I assume many moms do stay with them, on this site?)

DD is now 21 months and recent weaned and is only...

It certainly doesn't help it, but a lot of parenting duties negatively impact sex life. Like changing dirty diapers, but I still do that anyway.

My instinct tells me she probably has to resist the urge to weight each pee diaper and compare the weight to ounces of fluid intake. It's weird, still. She may not be able to see that little,...

Thanks for the responses! I've just slowed down on the rocking for now. I do like the idea behind RIE but there's a lot I just can't get on board with, about it. I do have to come up with something...

I have nothing to offer in the way of experience, since my daughter is only 9 months old.  I just wanted to say that the prospect of a toddler who happily stays up until my husband and myself head...

Depending on the type of spider, the mattress on the floor (pulled away from walls to avoid entrapment) would be the safest bet so long as the room is baby-proofed , or move the baby to a pack n'...
