My 22 month old son has never been a good sleeper. We go through stages of better and worse. After a period where bedtimes were slipping back to 9 or 9:30, we made a bunch of changes to our bedtime...

Yeah, Malcolm Sickels is no-vax friendly. Doesn't even have them in stock, actually. And he's a cool guy (and my neighbor).

DS is 17 months old. Most of the time, bedtime is great - we follow our routine and can then just lie DS down in his bed and he falls asleep on his own. That part is wonderful!

But he's still...

One night my baby woke up around 2 am. I nursed him. My husband and I took turns walking him. We restarted his bedtime ritual. We nursed some more. We walked some more. We listened to music. Nothing...

I wonder if this is the cause of my DS's nightwaking too. He's a slow, slow teether - every tooth takes a long time to come through. He's 15 months old and only has five teeth (two more are on their...

I must be in the minority for not liking Super Baby Food at all. There were a bunch of things she wrote that totally rubbed me the wrong way, or that I knew to be false, and then I just couldn't...

I used to nurse DS to sleep lying in bed next to him, but I'd feel like I got trapped there forever, waiting for him to fall asleep so I could slip away. So I started nursing him in "his" room down...

Right around that age, my son stopped being willing to nurse to sleep. He'd nurse, then pop off, seemingly excited and refreshed. We did the whole thing OP describes about letting him play some more...

Surprisingly, reading this has made me realize that I'm actually pretty pleased with all of the choices we've made about DS's first year.

DS has recently stopped nurse to sleep - he needs to be walked down instead. DH is much better at that than I am, so for a while he was the one putting DS to sleep every night. I've just figured out...

When we got to the point that DS was waking up 37 minutes after he went to bed, we knew something had to be done (this was maybe when he was 7 months old?). At the time I was feeling totally nursed...

Today I stopped into Mimi Maternity/Motherhood to look at nursing bras. Not only did I find great bras, I also got an excellent spaghetti strap tank top that says Got Milk! on the front. Sooo cool!
