We have never taken DD and probably won't until she is MUCH older. I think it just depends on the kid. Mine does not sit still, so we know we would end up walking around the concourse the whole game. Not worth it for us. I hope it goes well for you. Have fun!View Thread
I am 30 weeks pregnant with my second. I know I started wearing maternity clothes a week or two earlier this time around, but mostly because they were nicer then my regular clothes! I had an easy time keeping it quiet until 12 weeks and most people couldn't tell until about 16-18 weeks.View Thread
I agree, especially for dinner, it's what we have or nothing. I know she won't starve. But one question, how do you get your DD to "try" a food. I say that to my DD all the time and she won't even look at it or pushes it away. Thanks.View Thread
I think sometimes it's just a phase they go though and you have to let it play it self out. We have had to do "cry it out" a couple of times. I start with a 5 minute check, then increase to 10, 15, etc. My daughter has usually fallen asleep by the 20 minute check. I try not to take her out of the crib, just comfort from the side. Is he crying every time? My daughter doesn't always fall asleep right away. But if she is just talking to her self I let her be. I know nothing is wrong and she will eventually fall asleep. With my daughter it seems like the more we go in there, the harder/longer it will take for her to fall asleep.View Thread
Glad to hear about these new recommendations. Our pedi has been recommending these guidelines every since LO was born. I fully support them, along with the new booster seat recommendations. If you have ever seen a car crash video where a LO was forward facing, it's scary!!View Thread
I have a picky eater. Mostly, I feed her what I know she will eat. Yes, it ends up being a rotation of mac&chesse, plain pasta, and hot dogs. But I believe calories are just as important as nutrition right now. I think she is a little on the small side. I have talked with the pedi about her eating habits and have never been given any reason to be concerened, so I try not to worry. She loves most fruits and is good with dairy. Won't touch most meat or veggies. My DD is the same with bread. Will like off the PB but not touch the bread! I just keep offering and yesterday she did actually eat a few bites of the bread. I offer in small portions. That way if I have to throw it away, it's not much. I also hate to waste food! I give her what I know she will eat for breakfast and lunch because I am just feeding her. For dinner, she is offered what we eat (within reason). If she doesn't touch it, I try not to offer another choice. I want her to learn to eat what is offered. I know she will not starve.View Thread
I agree with the PP. I wouldn't sit in her room. It's possible she thinks it's still play time or is wanting to interact with you.
My daughter usually falls asleep pretty quickly. Sometimes I will hear her talking to herself 45 minutes after I put her down. As long as she is not crying or being loud, I let her be. Othertimes, when I check on her before I go to bed I notice she is still in the same place I put her down in. Meaning she feel asleep right away.
So I guess my suggestion would be to just say goodnight and leave the room. It's ok for her to lie and talk to her self for a while. I once read it's there way of relaxing and processing what they learned that day. Same if she wakes at night. I only go in if the crying doesn't stop after a couple of minutes or is getting louder. Then make, sure everything is ok, say goodnight and leave the room again.View Thread
