My 17 month old daughter still eats jarred food for lunch and dinner. This seems really old to me to still be eating out of a jar. Does anyone else's LO still do this? It's also really frustrating because I used to make all my own baby food. When we switched to the meals in a jar I never figured it would be this long! I don't know how to get her off of them. I always offer her whatever we are eating. I put bite sized pieces on her tray. She will pick them up and throw them right on the floor. Rarely will she even put it in her mouth and if she does, she spits it right back out. We switch between waffles and scrambed eggs for breakfast. She is really good with fruit and cheese. Some bread and pasta. Applesauce and yogurt are favorties. No vegtables unless I can sneak them in applesauce or yogurt. Other then that, Kraft Mac and Cheese and grilled cheese sandwiches are the only lunch and dinner food she will eat. Of course, she will gobble up goldfish crackers or any other kind of cookie or chip! At her 15 month appointment the pedi recommended stopping the jar food cold turkey. Figuring if she knew it wasn't an option, she will eventually eat what's in front of her. In my mind, this makes sense, but I hate to make meal time a battle. Even though it kind of already is. Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated. Thank you!View Thread
I think MIOB makes a lot of sense. I too get "free" daycare from my mother and mother in law. For the most part it has gone well. Sometimes I have to remind my mother how my husband and I like something done or to stop giving her so many snacks. However, I too have started to wonder how long this arrangement can last. It might not hurt to start looking at other arrangements. Good luck.View Thread
We have one gate. We have a split level and it's at the top of the stairs. DD and I spend most of our time on the main level. However, I find I have been leaving it open more often. DD is now 17 months. I trust her on the stairs but believe it's always possible for an accident to happen so I keep my eye on her when she is on the stairs. I believe teaching stair safety is important as well as DD learning to safely crawl up and down so I would never keep them off limits.View Thread
We live in MN. It's cold! My daughter sleeps in footed pajama's and a sleep sack. She doesn't have any problems moving around in it. I plan on keeping her in the sleep sack until it gets warmer. So probably another couple of months. I am not sure how she would do with just a blanket. She moves around a lot in her crib. So I figure by the time it's warm enough to not need the warmth of the sleep sack she will be older and I may be more comfortable with a blanket.View Thread
We don't do time outs. As a matter of fact, at my DD's 15 month appointment last week the pedi made a point of saying she is still too young for that. Luckily, we don't have behavior problems that can't be solved by re-direction.View Thread
1) Bring back signatures 2) Only show the subject of the post. We don't need to see the first few sentences of a post. This would also help the page look less cluttered. 3) Show the original post as the default, not who replied last. 4) Like someone else suggested, maybe add some color? The page looks very cluttered and is hard to follow. 5) Somehow make the board easier to find. It seems like before the change I could find the board in two clicks. I shouldn't have to "join" or search through endless other boards just to find this one.
