  1. Toddler & Child
    My 14-month-old daughter was eating lunch when I slipped away to the bathroom to take a pregnancy test. The next time she saw me I was literally jumping up and down with a huge smile and screaming. She started to smile and scream with me throwing her spoon and its contents in the air. I wonder -...
  2. Baby
    It's the makings of a great joke, "You know you're a mom when..." And, though we mamas take our roles very seriously, where would we be in life without some laughs? (Or cries, as the case may be!) We talked to mamas in our Mothering Forums and asked them for ways to know it's obvious you're a...
  3. Stay at Home Parents
    I'm writing this at the risk of sounding whiny, but I hope it will result in some useful advice, reassurance, anything to help me feel better. My children are sweet and beautiful, but my home.... well, I'm sure you've been there. Sticky floors, dust everywhere, loads of laundry in various...
  4. Family Life
    By Olivia Hinebaugh   I'm trying to get organized. What mom isn't? (If you are already organized, I'm not sure I want to know that.) As part of this project for self-betterment, house-cleansing, time-management-improvement, I broke down my typical weekday. I drafted up a normal schedule and...
  5. Family Life
    I want to be an infant. I want to lay my head on a pillow and have it sink in to the comfortable softness, warmed and comforted by the very fact that I don't know enough to worry. I want to smile innocently and laugh freely. I want to take delight in the attentions of others without having...
  6. Family Life
    Dear Tired, Stressed Out, In-Much-Need-Of-A-Shower Mom, You were up every hour last night nursing a teething baby. Cringing from the bites, cringing from the time on the clock, cringing from the remnants of the baby weight on your tummy. This too shall pass. You walked into Target with three...

  9. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>DH is increasingly becoming a fan of the CIO method. Sometimes when I leave him to watch DD while I'm showering/making dinner etc. I hear her screaming and find her in the pack n play while he is on his tablet playing a game. I then pick her up and hand her back to him to continue what i was...
  10. Co-sleeping and the Family Bed
    <p>The only success I have with getting DD to sleep unswaddled is by putting her on her tummy. I know this is a no-no according to the SIDS rules of the day but otherwise I have a non sleeping baby.  She either sleeps on her tummy, sleeps swaddled and rolls onto her face freaking me out and...

  12. Nutrition and Good Eating
    <p>I have a 6 1/2 mo old girl that gets sick and vomits from eating rice cereal and oat bran. I told her doctor this and questioned whether or not it could be some level of a gluten intolerance and her doc said that may be the case. she suggested I start giving her pureed meats to make up for...

  16. Family Safety
    <p>We need an infant seat for the coming babe but I can't decide on which to get.  We had a snugride 22 for our older 3 but it's expired now.  I was planning on getting another SR22 but it looks like they've changed how the harness is loosened and tightened so it's now in the back.</p> <p> </p>...
  17. Life With a Baby
    <p>I'm just wondering, when you had your first baby, did you experience an increase in strong fears?  I'm going to preface this by saying it's not out of control by any means, and I hope it stays that way.  Sometimes my thoughts go to really scary places.  I get this frozen panicky feeling...

  19. Vaccinations
    I am totally confused on this one, cause I've read confusing statements:<br><br> Some claim that the pertussis vaccine is developed only against the toxin (the one that causes the cough when the bacteria is dying), thus the vaccine will prevent the vaccinated person from getting the awful cough...
