I have a 19 month old, I still hold her and rock her to sleep, I don't see any issue with this as I don't think it causes any harm. Granted she is my only child (for the time being) but I enjoy my cuddle time with her since I know it won't be long and she won't want to even sit on my lap. I would only caution about laying with her as you don't fall asleep since that can be dangerous but if you want to hold and rock her I say go for it! You and your daughter are the decision makers in this process and if you are both good with it then do what you have been doing. No reason to changeView Thread
Does he get carried a lot? Do you put things across the room from him that he wants? I know this sounds crazy but to get my daughter to start crawling and walking we would put her bottle/cup across the room from her so that she had to work to get to it, she didn't walk until she was 12 1/2 months old but we also walked with her, we started by having her hold our fingers and walking with us for a while, and then we switched to her holding just one hand, it is kind of a training situation and we actually started this when she was about 9 months old or so, then one day it just clicked. But I have a step daughter that was carried for so long that she never crawled, She has always had issues walking and being super clumsy now, just a thought as to what might be going on.View Thread
Just thinking out loud, but even if you don't smoke in your home the smoke is still on your skin and in your clothing when you go back in the house. I would say it might have started off just as a little cold that developed into something more. Do you still aspirate him when he gets drainage? I know it is not easy (my daughter is 14 months) since they can fight you more now but I wonder if that would help everything keep from getting infected? I hope you get it figured out soon!View Thread
My daughter and I sleep the same way, my body temp goes up at night and I have never been able to use blanket sleepers with my daughter, I don't think there is anything wrong with it maybe mention it to your doctor on her next appointment. Has she always been this way or is this something new?View Thread
Where did you plan to give birth to your LO? Hospital

Were you prepared? or Would you have done something differently? I was very prepared since I had a scheduled C-section, the only thing I would have done differently is ask for a different bed, since I was in the maternity ward they had me in one of the convertible beds for natural child birth, that may have been perfect for natural birth but after a C-section it was terrible, I had never swollen until after I had my daughter, then I couldn't get shoes on my feet at all even going home.
Was there a funny or intense moment that stuck out through it all? Seeing her Dad in the garb to go to the operating room, the best Anesthesiologist ever and her first cry, I waited a lot of years for her so that cry was priceless
