Thanks for your reply, NewMa!  I definitely don't have hard feelings toward my neighbor.  Staying at home with kids (especially other people's kids) is one of the most challenging jobs I can...

Thanks so much for your replies!  My instinct is that she's bored and frustrated, and I agree that she would do better at a structured daycare facility.  She might also be having problems with the...

Green can be a sign of dairy sensitivity. Could the struggling beforehand be gas? If so, that might be another dairy problem.

Does she usually have so many BMs?

DD turned 1 last week, and one of her favorite presents was a bucket swing (kind of rubbery, like the ones at the park). I don't think it was all that cheap, however; $50 or so on amazon. She also...

I'm terrible at confrontation, so I don't think I would've said anything at the appointment, or that I would file a complaint either. Sounds like it wouldn't matter to them if you did anyway.

It may be, but it could take a long time before you actually see anything. My dd cut her first two teeth at 3.5 mos. Bottom front ones came in together. She'd been rosy cheeked and cranky for weeks.

We have one for the yard. It's great when we're working out there. She loves to be outside; I don't love pulling leaves & sticks out of her mouth.
