I'm with you OP.  Mini vent here:  I have a good friend who I love, but she keeps asking me to babysit for her early morning appts.  She's soooo nice about it that I can't seem to say no.  First...

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 need a good dvd that has popular songs with a jukebox option to just play songs without all the dialogue. We have a Barney Songs dvd that DD loves and I want something similar. Songs with hand...

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...

I've never been able to lay DD down asleep. I finally had to start nursing her laying down and sneak off. But oh, you make me miss those lap naps! Grab a book or remote or laptop and enjoy them!! I...

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...

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...

My 18mo seems a bit ahead compared to others in my march 09 club on another board. She's independently counting to 12 and knows all her letters, colors, shapes. I'm not drilling her, she just picks...

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...

4 of the past 5 days, 18mo DD has not napped. The two weeks before this it's been a 20 minute nap. I nurse her like usual, but she continues to wiggle and fidget until I get frustrated and give up...

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...

Is your mom able to get her to sleep during the day? I personally wouldn't do it, but my mom isn't able to get DD to sleep. I don't think one night at Grandma's is going to night wean/sleep train a...

Another normal vote here. 17mo has a too high to count vocab, but neither says yes nor nods, and doesn't say no to a question (but will shake her head). If I say "do you want pizza?", she'll either...
