also sometimes it's just easier. It's rather difficult having a 2 year old running around the house alone even if it is for 15 minutes. I don't see any problem with it, he killed two birds with one stone!View Thread
Hello, just wondering if any moms/dads are able to offer advice on nightime potty training. DD will be 3 in March and I'm getting kind of tired of purchasing pull ups! I know the limiting of the liquids before a certain time, anyone have anything else in particular that worked for them?View Thread
some nights are better than others, i think that was just a rough week. She has a dream lite, puppet pet, even Thomas the train, but when she wakes up from nightmares, none of them matter. We've regressed to allowing her back in the bed just so that we'll be well rested for work, I know it's not the right thing to do, but it works.View Thread
no! Thank God b/c that was the longest period and I thought we would not make it, nights were more difficult b/c she was used to waking up in the middle of the night & having it. It's been a wonderful few weeks without it and anytime she hurts herself or hears the word "no" she no longer asks for it as her comforter. So glad Santa & the nu-nu is gone now!View Thread
My DD has gone from nightmares, to waking up screaming in the middle of the night for no apparent reason. Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this issues and about how long they have lasted...I'm so over it at this point.View Thread
I have always been that girl who would look at mom's funny anytime I saw a child over the age of crawling, sucking on a pacifier. Well, I eventally became that mom. My 2 1/2 yr old is attached to her as soon as she come home from daycare until the next morning. She asks for it as soon as I buckle her into her carseat! Well, it is now day #3 of "Santa has your nu-nu." It seems to be working pretty well. She goes to sleep without it, but usually wakes up at about 2 or 3 am and I admit, I give it to her, but take it aways before she wakes up and when she asks I say Santa came and got it. I am so hoping that this works out, that dang nu-nu is embarrassing! Any other tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated, I've tried the cutting it, letting her cry it out, but none have helped.View Thread
My sweet darling 2 yr old babygirl is having nightmares and I don't know why. It happens maybe 1 or 2 times a month. She is afraid of bugs, crickets, roaches, anything crawling outside (except ants, which is kinda weird). We monitor her t.v. time & shows so it's not from that. But she wakes up literally jumping out of her crib, she started screaming lastnight about monsters, my hubby ran into her room and found her standing in her bed pointing at the walls. I don't know what to do, I don't think it's from her allergy med b/c the nightmares aren't that frequent. Has anyone else been through this? She slept in our bed a few months back and woke up so scared she refused to let her dad touch her until I turned on all the lights and cleared all the pillows from the bed to show her no "bugs" were in the bed. Not sure if I need to speak with her pediatrician about these nightmares or what but I am beginning to get concerned.View Thread
I would definitely tell the daycare to NOT put a bandaid in her thumb. They carry horrible germs and anything she touches will be transferred to her mouth. It's your child and your decision. If they can't respect it then maybe you should consider finding a new daycare.View Thread
My 2 y/o bg is potty trained, has been for a few months now. Both home and away she lets us know when she has to go. At her previous daycare I sent her there with a pair of panties on and they said she wet them and she didn't let them know when she had to go. And I was never to send her in panties again,(But I also truly think they weren't asking her or taking her so she would be familar where the potty was) She has been home for the past month and verbally lets us know very well when she has to go. We do put on a pull up overnight to prevent any bed soiling b/c she is allowed a 1/2 cup of warm milk before bed. My question is, she is starting a new daycare next week and I am seriously considering sending her in the think cotton training pants b/c when she has on a pull up, she goes in the pull up and I don't want to confuse her. Just looking for a little insight or opinions on this. I haven't purchased them yet, but will be doing so today to try them out. Has anyone had any experiences with them? Do I need to also purchase those plastic panties to go outside of them? Any and all comments are appreciated.View Thread
