I'm kind of a tough love momma, so honestly I would just put all the bottles away or throw them away and just give him sippy cups. This is what we did with DD and it took her a few days of whinning but eventually she realized that she wasn't getting a bottle anymore so she stopped. They won't let themselves go thirsty, so eventually he'll start drinking out of it. The best thing is out of sight, out of mind! So if he knows there are no more bottles, he'll get over it. It's going to be harder on you with all of the crying but stand strong...you can do it!View Thread
So DD has been falling a lot lately outside and scraping her knees. When the cut is new and bleeding we'll put a bandaid on it. However, most of the time they are just tiny marks that don't really need a bandaid, they just bleed a little and then are fine but the next day she feels she needs a bandaid again. How can we get her over this? I started putting cheap ones on but once they fall off she freaks and thinks she needs a new one. Any suggestions would be great!View Thread
At this age, I don't think they know that these are typical boy or girl things...they just like what they like. My DD is the same way, so I think it's perfectly normal. DD loves trains, motorcycles, sports but also loves her dolls, kitchen, and playing dress up. Seems normal to me...plus I would rather her like "boy" stuff instead being 100% girly.View Thread
This doesn't happen for me to often. However, when I am home alone with DD and need to take a shower I either have her bring some toys into the bathroom or let her watch TV in the livingroom. She's a great kid though and I've never had to worry about her getting into things. When I do let her stay in the livingroom I keep the bathroom door open and don't turn the fan/radio on like I normally do. The first few times that I had her in the bathroom, she wanted in the shower with me but I just told her no. She was a little upset but got over it...I'm sure your DS will too!View Thread
I would say something along the lines of transportation. DD freaks out whenever she sees a yellow school bus, motorcycle, or train...she loves those things. However, she is a huge Mickey Mouse Clubhouse fan so that could be another option. We don't typically have huge parties for her, so I could get away with anything really.View Thread
We are going through this same thing right now. On Friday daycare told me that within an hour, DD asked to go potty 9 times and either didn't go or went just a tiny bit so they thought UTI. I took her to the doctor since it was a Friday and they asked me to bring back a urine sample the next day since DD wouldn't do it there. I did and in the meantime they did put her on an antibotic just incase. Well today I get a call that her urine looks fine. I think like Ali said, she mostly does this before she has a BM b/c she doesn't want to sit long enough. Also, I think she asks to go a lot when she's bored. When we are at the park or pool, she holds it the entire time we are there but when we are home she'll ask to go a million times. If he's not crying in pain when he goes and doesn't have a fever, it's probably not an infection. These kids are stinkers when it comes to getting attention! Plus DD knows she gets a jelly bean everytime she pees, so maybe she's trying to go more just to get one!View Thread
I don't know. Last night DD was drinking juice right before bath, went pee right before bath but still woke up dry this even though I know she didn't just pee out the juice. She can hold it for a long time though. When we first started the whole underwear thing, she went for 15 hours without peeing!!! I think some kids can hold it longer?!? He's still young, so I wouldn't worry too much about doing diapers at night.View Thread
I have 2 from the same shopping trip to the grocery store.
DD was talking and said that I was an old mommy (I'm 28), so I was teasing back saying I'm not old. This went back and forth, then she decides to say that I'm a grandma. Once again we were joking going back and forth. Just then we pass a lady with gray hair but didn't look old and DD yells "She's a grandma!" I quickly pushed the cart around the corner.
Then later we are approaching a little boy screaming in his cart, DD yells "Mommy he's crying, he's being a bad boy!" Oh I wanted to die.View Thread
