Dont worry they can eat solid, adult foods without teeth. Look at the elderly, most of our residents dont have teeth and they eat everything under the sun. Just start with small soft items and work on adding new stuff. I started my son on "adult" foods at 10.5 months and by 11 months was totally eating adult foods.View Thread
Well they recommed taking your child our of the crib when they reach 35 inches no matter the age. Our son is 16.5 months and in the next 2 weeks here, as soon as we get the carpet replaced, we will be transfering him to a twin bed in his new room. He is 34.5 inches and baby #2 will be here in the next 2 weeks or so, so he's moving up in the world!View Thread
My son cut out his 2nd nap at around 12 months, he is now 16 months, and has moved his bedtime from 630 to 830. And now all a sudden last month or so he is a crank most of the day, maybe its just the age thing. He gets up and is cranky until his nap and when he gets up from that he is fine. But he is a very very restless sleeper at night so that prob his problem.View Thread
The walking isnt a concern, but sitting up and crawling, i'd be a little worried. My son didnt walk until he was 3 days away from turning 15 months, and another girl at work didnt walk til 15.5 months. He was always ahead of sched on everything else, but just prefed to crawl. He'd walk if we held his hand or pushing the walker but never ventured far on his own.View Thread
No advice but i can surely relate. My son is now almost 16 months and once he hit 3 weeks, the napping ended. If he did nap it was only when i held him and it was like a 20 min nap here and there. Eventually got him to nap on the couch when he was a lil older, but for about the same time frame. Fianlly like 11 months rolled around and he was napping for 1.5-2 hours in the crib!! Then when he hit 14.5 months all heck broke loose again, he wont nap at daycare so when he gets home he is sooo crabby, but still wont go to sleep until 8-830. It takes a lot of trying to get him to nap here and then its only for maybe an hr and he wakes up crabby.
Unlike you tho, my son was never good at sleeping through the night and still isnt, and to top it off we have a baby commin in 5 weeks!! The cry it out doenst work for him at all either, he just gets himself sooo worked up to where he starts to hyperventilate. I figure when hes 15 he wont want mommy and daddy to rock him to sleep n e more, so i cherish the time now.View Thread
My son is up to 9 teeth and basicaly just gets the red swollen gums, but unfortunetly it takes forever for his teeth to come in. The molars have been the worst. They started comming in 4 months ago and the left bottom has fianlly come in. He usually just chews on his finger, if its a day he is really chewing ill give him ibuprofen, aceto. to me is usless in my child.View Thread
We started offering our son who is now also 15 months a sippy cup at around 6-7 months. Took him a while to get used to it, but he eventually did. The first ones we used were the first year ones that you could start with a nipple and then change to the sippy spout. I think it just takes them a while to understand how to use it. I just bought him the next stage ones with no spout on it, and he hasnt figured it out yet, but i keep offering it to him everyday.View Thread
Thanks he deff. gets enough activity during the day, he never sits still. He has his radio at night since he was a tiny and his favorite animals he snuggles up with. We have been doing the same thing as far as a routine since forever, and he went bed fine until recently. It doesnt help at all now that his molars are comming in and on top of it has a cold. And he was finally starting to sleep through the night. Maybe it is all just his teeth comming in, i hope. Most of the time when he wakes now it is just for 10-15 secs and he goes back to sleep, once in a while he just screams/crys and nothing really helps he just has to scream til he's done.View Thread
