I made my transgender connection after having my son. I've identified as bi since high school, but after having my son it clicked that I don't actually have to be feminine, despite being a mom and...

Seeking counseling for your child is NOT going to be harmful. I'd say wait and see, too, except for the anger--that anger needs to be dealt with, the sooner the better. It could go a couple of...

I'm having much the same issue--teething and my reaction to his biting me led to a nursing strike. We're on day four. DS seems to be feeling better, and all along he's nursed at night and taken a...

I was given a dozen of their old pattern, and they were awesome until DS hit about 15 lbs. I'd like to get more, but if they're not a good option on chunky babes I'll look elsewhere.
