How do I go about moving there, though? I've never moved somewhere out of state by myself before. I'd most likely wait til a year or so from now, when I've graduated from community college, and I'd...

I've been a member of this forum since November 2007, but I took a very long hiatus due to some family issues. I'm posting this thread here today because I remember that this forum was a *huge*...

I would get a second opinion. I could see if he only had one or two diagnoses, but the fact that he has all three makes me think he has ASD, along with the things you mentioned. Does he fit the DSM...

Now he isn't going at all. He went twice today and seemed excited about it, but every other time I took him to the bathroom, he started crying when we walked into the room. One problem is that he's...

We use a potty chair that has a removable bowl and he'll stand and I'll hold the bowl under him while he pees. We haven't really done poops yet because he's really irregular and I can't tell when...

It's not actually a strike. It's just a bit of regression. I'll just be giving him something to distract him and praising him more when he goes. He's walking and he has three teeth coming in at...

I just stand my son up on the back of the toilet. We tried it once at home and he's been going that way in public ever since. He never poops out in public, though, so I've never had to deal with...

We've been doing EC and haven't run across any problems up until now. I've been doing a bedtime routine with DS that starts at 9:00 where I give him a bath and then rock him in the glider with some...

I'm too tired to answer all of your questions (it's 2:30 am here) but I do want to say that it's definitely not too late to be doing EC. I started when my guy was 10 months old and it's been going...

DH will usually carry the backpack if we take that. We also have an olive green messenger-style diaper bag that I got at Babies R Us. I'd just get a backpack or diaper bag in a solid color like...

Baby Gap has some XXS underwear that might fit. It's $12.95 or so for a 3 pack. Gymboree also has underwear and their clothes are usually designed for slimmer kids, I've found, but that's my...

I'm guessing that she wants your full attention now because she knows she won't be able to get your attention as much when you have the baby. I would try to play with her as much as you can stand...

I've asked DH to sleep with us and he says he feels like he doesn't belong, which is understandable, and our bed is kind of small for us all to fit. DS has been sleeping by himself on a mattress in...

He vomits when he has milk. I gave him Nestle Good Start formula once, which is supposed to be better for kids who have sensitivities to milk protein because it breaks down some of the protein, but...

He would be miserable without food because he'd be starving. He pretty much treats breastmilk as a drink even if I don't offer a sippy cup that day. The times when he usually uses a sippy cup are...

No, I don't think so. I don't give him any milk products at all. He's just a kid who likes food. There's nothing wrong with him and I'm going to keep giving him his food and his sippy cup because he...

He's a very independent little guy. He'd seriously much rather feed himself finger food than drink milk most of the time. He doesn't nurse in public anymore, and I've even offered. He just doesn't...

DS seems to be weaning himself. He does have milk at times, especially now that he's sick and I'm pushing fluids on him, but he doesn't nurse nearly as much as he used to. I'm kind of concerned...
