thank you for being in the same boat its noce to know other moms are going through the same thing. and i know eventually she will do ok, but i just keep hoping the day will be today haha. but thanks again for the breatherView Thread
thanks! she does already take a sippy all throughout the day. water, juice,etc...but only before bed does she have a bottle. we have tried each and every kind of sippy at night, but she cries...but i know the bottle is the security. and when she does fall asleep, as soon as she does, we put her down. we dont hold her for a long time afterwards...so hopefully like you said, that helps. and she will sometimes fuss and make noise in the crib, and we just wait, and she ends up falling back asleep, but it is only when she cries or whatever that i go get her. in the middle of the night, i can just walk her around and she goes back to sleep. but thanks for your advice...
she has never been much of a sleeper or eay to get to go to bed, so maybe thats why its a lillte more difficult. but things seem to be getting easier, and i hope they continue. i just get stressed sometimes wondering if it will ever end View Thread
How do all of you get your kids to go to sleep at night? My 14.5 month old, still takes a bottle of whole milk at night, and usually that puts her to sleep. if not, we just walk and rock her till she does. Is this a bad thing to get started? Like I have said before in other posts, I am just not the kind of parent who can let their child scream and cry it out at night...just wanting some feedback from you moms!! View Thread
My DD is 14 1/2 months old, and she still does not sleep very well at night. She is up and down almost all night. Now, some days are better than others, where she does sleep pretty well, but then its back to ups and downs. Also the other night, she was at her Grandma's house..and my neice threw up while she was there....and a few more times that evening I guess. Wellwent and picked my DD up, and this was 3 days ago. My neice had no fever....but I am scared and waiting for my DD to be sick. Does this mean just because they were together that she will get what my neice had? And a lot of times, I know they will drink out of the same sippy cup (which I hate), but when I'm not there, there is nothing tI can do, and I know my in-laws let it happen.View Thread
no, there is no reason i want to take it away, I guess just so it's not harder later but, as for me and my DH, we are ok with letting her have a bottle 2 times a day. like i said she drinks fine from a sippy cup during the day...so with the bottle being her comfort, i say whatever makes her feel good.i have not tried just to put water in the bottle, but i will try that soon, but i am just glad she is done with formula and just on whole milk. i thought that would be hard too, but she did really well with it. I know I worry too much about things that aren't really that big of deal. But she is our first child and I guess we just want to do what the DR says, even though all kids are different. I just want to do the best thing for her, and hope it all works out eventually. Like I know the sleeping habits will always alter, but she still dosn't sleep all though the night. She will wake up, and we do put her in bed with us every so often...but again, my husband and I, that is ok for us. I just wana make sure I am doing whats best for her....thanks for everyones input, hope to keep chatting soon!!View Thread
thank you kelsie. yeah we have thought maybe for another month or so giving it to her, then like you said just taking it away all together. but see i have never been able to just put her in the crib and cry herself to sleep, so we just give her a bottle before she goes to bed. she never takes one to bed with her. so for her to cry without the bottle, she will just have to get tired enough and i can rock her to sleep. but thank you for you help!View Thread
Hi! My DD is 13 months old and she still has a bottle in the am and in the pm. one when she gets up and one before bed. she is taking whole milk, no more formula, but we can't seem to fighue out how to transition away from the bottle. we have tried many many sippy cups with milk in them, but she won't drink the milk out of them. Now, during the day, she takes a sippy cup with water or jucie, whatever the case may be, but not milk for her bottle times. HOW CAN WE DO THIS?? she just seems so attached, and my DH and I are stressing. She does not take a binki or have any other security things, so what can we do??View Thread
hi! i know somewhat what these are like, my dd does this also. not to an extreme but she does it. like if we pull her off the stairs, or take her off furniture like you said, she is not at the point she smacks at us, and pulls her own hair. this year has been full of ups and downs...but we just try and take her mind off what she was doing. we starrt playing with another toy or whatever. but if she goes back to what she was doing, when then give her a little smack on the hand or take her in anohter room. i know everyone is different, but i know what you are dealing with...hope you find something that works soon.View Thread
