My DD is the same, she is all over the place in her crib! Have you tired putting her right down in her crib at night instead of your bed? I would suggest letting her cry it out. It might be tough at first but for a lot of children it helps. Put her in her crib and let her cry. Check on her every 15 minutes, provide comfort but don't pick her up. It took us 3 nights to get back to our regular schedule and DD falling right to sleep when we put her in the crib. I try and do the same now if DD wakes up in the middle of the night. If she is just fussing a little I don't get up and usually in a minute or two she is back to sleep. If she is full on crying I check on her and rub her tummy or back to get her back to sleep. I try not to pick her up becasue she usually wakes up more or thinks she can get down and play. Good luck.View Thread
I don't think being married or un-married has anything to do with who has "more say". In any relationship it should be an equal partnership where you both agree on what's best for your child. Your partner should have the same values as you do and automatically know that taking a child of any age to someplace where drugs are involved is not a good idea. As PP said, if you were not together and the courts were involved then technically I suppose they could say who has "more say" then the other. You need to put your foot down on this one and tell your DF he can not take your child anyplace where drugs or illegal activity is involved. You should explain to your DF that your childs safety is involved and that is never ok to put in jeopardy.View Thread
I would wait until after her shower to see what she gets. Just because she registered for it doesn't mean she will get it. If she does, I would politely ask for your stuff back. It's your stuff to begin with and you should be able to do what you want with it. I think it's nice to have "new" stuff with your first child. My sister in law is always offering me her stuff. Even her toddler spoons! My point of view is, I plan on using it again so I would like to start off with brand new stuff. Sometimes I just take my sister in laws stuff to be polite knowing I am not going to use it. Maybe yours just didn't know how to say no thank you? Also, it's very easy to get caught up in the registery excitement and start scanning everything in sight!View Thread
I think your fears are normal. But, remember, like the PP said, the likelyhood of something happening to DD, like a car accident, etc, is very low and could happen just as easily if she was with you. I would let that worry go espcially if it means you and DH don't get to go out. Time alone with DH is also important. Your sister has two kids, sounds like she knows what she is doing. I am not sure a sleep over makes sense at this age. If you had to go out of town or going out and getting home really late, then it might make sense for her to sleep over. I would probably wait until DD was older unless there is a specific need for it.View Thread
We used benedryl on a flight we took in January. I think it worked. My DD slept for an hour after she took it. She was 13 months at the time. Not sure she would have slept without it. Too many distractions and things to look at.View Thread
If she has actually gone pee and poop on the potty chair, it sounds like she is ready. We bought a potty chair last month for our now 19 month old. We put it in the bathroom to just let her see it and "sit" on it to get comfortable. She just started grabbing for toliet paper a few days ago and pretending to wipe. I consider these "signs" of being ready to potty train. Another sign is being very interested in watching you go and what you are doing in the bathroom. However, I do think this age is still a little young to be fully potty trained so I am not expecting success right away. I am fully prepared it may take several months. We are going on vacation next week so I will wait until we get home to really start the training.View Thread
Honestly, I don't see anything wrong with that. I think Mothers/Fathers day can also be a time for the parent to enjoy some rest and relaxation. I would actually encourage my husband if that's how he wanted to spend it, especially when the kids are this young. I will probably feel different when they are older and can understand what the day means. But I am sorry if it upsets you. You could still make a special dinner or breakfast.View Thread
I am on the pill and I almost always start my flow on Monday. If I hadn't started by Wednesday, I would be curious as well. However, I am assuming you won't start a new pack until Sunday. I am sure things will come around by then. However, there is a warning on the pack to not take the pill if you are pregnant. I probably wouldn't start a new pack on Sunday if I didn't have a period until I talked with the MD. The pill isn't 100%!! Good luck.View Thread
