I must admit, my dd is a little spoiled princess; but it's time that princess gets the boot out of my bed! I love to cuddle with her at night, sweet kisses in the morning too, but during the night she makes our king sized bed feel like a twin. She kicks and tosses & turns, I am so tired in the mornings before work. She was in her bed for a few months, then she got pneumonia so I wanted her right next to me, but that's been over 6-8 months ago. If she falls asleep we try to put her in her bed but she wakes up crying at 3am if she can't feel her dad or I and he goes running to get her! Any suggestions?View Thread
I wouldn't dare give a toddler melatonin! I can't believe that was recommended by a licensed physician. The child could eventually become dependant on the pills, plus, it's a pill! I would recommend speak with your physician, there may be some underlying issues.View Thread
Has anyone ever used the skin so soft by Avon as a bug repellent? We live in the south and the mosquitos here are treacherous!! I just hate using bug repellent on my dd daily but there is no way that I can keep her in pants in our 100% humidity and almost 98 degree summers! She's already been attacked over the wknd on her ankles and the itching is miserable for my ladybug! I don't want to give her benadryl daily on top of her allergy meds. Help! Any remedies are gladly appreciated!View Thread
I would suggest getting her in to see a physician. Although I am no doctor, it kinda sounds like an anxiety issue. We have to be really careful with our little ones b/c at this age they are touching everything in sight and bacteria could get into those sores and cause nasty infections.View Thread
whatever you do, don't compare her to other 3 years olds b/c each one is different. I'm sure her vocabulary is at a very common point for her age. My dd will be 3 in a few weeks and she holds entire conversations and I usually have to ask her 3 or 4 times (or more lol) what she is saying or talking about. Give her some time and work with her at home.View Thread
