No, we didn't get him his own seat. Hopefully that won't be a problem. It was too expensive. He doesn't take a bottle anymore and he had to get tubes in his ears a couple months ago. Do you think take off will hurt his ears? Hopefully a sucker will help with that.View Thread
In a couple of days my SO, his mother and our almost 16 month old son will be traveling on a 6 hour plane ride. Do you guys have any suggestions on what I should bring with me to keep DS occupied? I'm not sure on the regulations with snacks and stuff also. I thought about bringing crayons and a coloring book because he just recently started showing interest in it, but other than that I have no idea. Most of his favorite toys make a lot of noise and I don't want to bother everyone on the plane.View Thread
My 15 month old son does the gagging thing also, but not because he is sick. I think it started when he was getting some of his back teeth in and he stuck his fingers too far back in his mouth. Well, he discovered that he gets a lot of attention when he makes that gagging sound and for awhile he was doing it all the time at dinner. We finally got him to stop just by kind of ignoring him.View Thread
It sounds to me like something is bothering her. My son acted like this when he had some of his back teeth coming in. He just kept crying and I didn't know what to do. I was going to take him to the ER, but I finally got him to calm down and go to sleep. But he literally cried for like 3 or 4 hours straight. It was so frustrating. I would try giving your little one some motrin and maybe some baby Orajel and see if that helps.View Thread
I have found that a lot of the time TJ Maxx and Marshalls carry some of the same things that Kohl's does and it's a lot cheaper. We get DS clothes from TJ's, Marshalls, Walmart, and a lot of times JC Penney's will have really good clearance sales. He still wears 12 months in pants but 18 months in shirts. Most of the time I have to fold his pants over so they will fit him better. He is still kind of small for his age.View Thread
Carter likes when we put him on the bed. He will crawl to the headboard and then pull himself up. He will look back at us and smile and then just throw himself backwards. He thinks it's the funniest thing ever! But now he does it in his toy room too and my mom said that he tried to do it on her couch. I fear a trip to the emergency room might be in our future... I hope not!View Thread
My son is 15 months old. Sometimes he drives me absolutely crazy, but most of the time he is such a joy to be around. I love to see the big grin on his face when I pick him up from daycare every day. I love to hear him talking to himself when he first wakes up. I love to watch him learn new things or pick up new words. For the first time last night he told me "Night Night" when I put him in his crib for bed. It just brought the biggest smile to my face. And he gives hugs now. The very best hugs I have ever received in my life
I'm trying to cherish all the time I get with him. We have a new baby on the way due next May and I know it's going to be hard to split my time between both of them. I want to be able to give the new baby the same attention I gave my son when he was born, but I also don't want my toddler to feel left out. I'm sure things will work out though View Thread
I am 9 weeks pregnant with my second child (my son is 14 months old). I ended up having 3 baby showers for my first pregnancy (one from my friends, one from my family, and one from his family) and I was wondering if it's acceptable to have a shower for your second pregnancy? I don't really need anything new since I still have all of everything from last time. Just diapers and wipes mainly and hopefully some pink stuff if it's a girl (fingers crossed). Should I do a new registry? I know it's a little early to be thinking about baby showers, but I was just wondering.View Thread
