The worst we do would be mismatched solids, like a red t-shirt with pink shorts.

I go through the hand me downs and then go to target and get some solids fill in the outfits. I hang almost...

The canines are hands down the worst, but at least they're way faster than the molars and you have a nice long break before the 2yr molars.

DD has never been a good teether and we do use meds if...

I can't answer your question, but if you want to try it, nightweaning may not be the big ordeal that it sounds like. DD is 19mo and a couple months ago she was having an early morning nurse-a-thon...

DD has never been a sleeper. Never slept in the car, stroller, carrier, anywhere. They say it's a sign of a gifted child, so that should make you feel a little better. I just read this parenting...

I cannot figure out the logistics of having 19mo DD in her own room. I try the monitor and it keeps us both up. Her room is across the house so she'd have to cry loudly to hear it without the...

HA, you were all right! He did do speech therapy when he was 5. Ok, stupid fight over. And they're going to have a daddy daughter day tomorrow so I can get a break and learn to talk correctly again.

Well thanks, this makes me feel better. Yes, it was very hurtful for him to call me a bully to my sweet little baby. He's comparing it to having an older child with a studder or lisp and mocking...

We're working with 19mo DD on PTing. She's ready - waking up dry, telling me after she's gone, and off and on she'll tell me before. The problem we're having is she'll start to pee and get all...

Thanks, you've made me feel better. I'm not going to worry about it then because I guess it isn't something that needs early treatment if she does/will have it. I didn't mean any offense with the no...

DD is 18mo. She drinks ice water all day (it's hot here!) and occasionally a glass of regular milk with dinner or with cookies if I think of it. Not a big fan of it, but I did find that she'll drink...

I agree to drop a nap, but realize that you won't see an immediate difference each day. It'll take a month of going back and forth, and some cranky evenings. Don't drop the morning or afternoon...

What stuff is he doing? Are you saying he isn't allowed in the kitchen when you're not in there, or ever? IMO, an off limits room is going to be very difficult for a long long time, especially the...
