I'm sorry my reply was so short, and likely unhelpful. I think it would be very difficult to have a legal battle without a lawyer. In general it's extremely tough for the father to get custody. You...

I only have one, but it will work out. You'll learn to juggle two like you learned to handle one, one day at a time, with a lot of trial and error. Good luck!

Invite other moms over. Schedule a play date at your house. In some ways it's extra work, but if you know any Moms, adding another kid into the mix changes everything, and you get mom time.

Another thought, where do diaper changes happen? Is the potty in the same place she associates changing with?

I'm not yet to this point, but could the potty chair be uncomfortable? A different potty may work better, especially if she can go with you to help pick it out.
Also, you could try relocating the...

My 12 month old has begun wanting things in their proper place, making sure the baby gate is shut, and following specific routines, preferring diaper changes on the same spot every time. I figured...

In each room of the house, I've created a play area for my LO. In the kitchen she has her own drawer full of random kid kitchen stuff to play with, and every cupboard within her range contains...

Just to note, I don't believe it was orchestrated. It just seems absurd to me that this became an issue, especially considering the specific class. It is a perfect example of some of the topics that...

I think you've gotten great advice. I'd second the idea of considering direct nursing. In most situations I wouldn't really consider it, but as pp wrote family is family. I completely get it, if...

No one aside from family has ever said or done anything to me about BFing in public. Mom once tried to cover me up. More often than not I nurse in a carrier. I've had many complete strangers request...

I would have been upset, holiday stress or no, and probably would have reacted the same way. Parenting is hard enough without feeling criticized.

I didn't really get into my views about paci use, but I've never used one with my almost 1 DD. I like that she doesn't use one, it's likely helped her verbal skills compared to heavy paci users, but...

This may be a situation where you have to decide if it's a big deal to you. If it is, I would just get rid of the paci altogether. If you don't want to get rid of the paci, then you'll likely have...
