She just transitioned to the toddler room at daycare so I'm wondering if that's part of the problem. Last night bath went much better but my parents were visiting, so maybe she was good b/c they were there? I'm hoping this stage is over soon, it's tiring.View Thread
Not sure if this will comfort you or not but my little brother had nose bleeds often as a child for no reason. I think some people are just more prone to them. However, if these continue frequently, I'd call his doctor just to have him checked out.
My DD would cry too thinking she caused it to happen. I've been struggling with anxiety and had a breakdown at bfast on Saturday morning. DD started crying b/c she thought she had done something wrong.View Thread
I'll admit, I have woren them to a store but only b/c I was stopping some where after working out. Also, I've woren PJ pants to the grocery store but that's when I've been sick and needed medicine/OJ/soup, etc. There is no way I'd make a habit out of wearing either in public on a regular basis.View Thread
Well not that I'm happy your son is doing the same but I'm glad to hear she's normal. Last night it was the same again. The only thing I can think of is that she's so exhausted that the poor kid just wants to go straight to bed without a bath. It's part of the routine plus she's in daycare so I need to get those germs off of her nightly. Hopefully once she's completely transitioned to her new daycare class this will get better b/c I've heard she's not napping long enough in the infant room after playing so hard all morning in the toddler room. They said the toddlers nap better once they are in a room that's completely quiet, music and everyone is sleeping. In the infant room the other babies are on different schedules since they are so much younger.View Thread
This morning DH comes into the bathroom as I'm getting ready for work and tells me that he feels bad for DD because she's very upset. Right away I ask if she's had another scary dream that she told DH about. Nope, she had a GREAT dream and actually thought it was real that she was disappointed when she found out it wasn't. Apparently, she thought this morning was her birthday and was heartbroken to find out it wasn't. She even told DH that I said her birthday was today...wow, I was a mean mom! By the time she finished her breakfast and came to find me, she was doing much better...never even mentioned this to me. Guess she has some really realistic dreams!View Thread
Yeah a coat in Chicago in the winter is pretty important. What always amazed me where shoes...how do you lose a shoe and not know it?!? I've seen this in parking lots, like seriously someone was walking and their shoe fell off and they didn't notice?!? So weird! To be honest, as a kid/teen if the item was large/expensive I never looked in those bins b/c there were weird items in there...underware, seriously just toss it!View Thread
I'm posting here b/c the 1 year old boards are dead. So DD#1 was such a good baby/toddler that I honestly don't know what to do with temper tamturms. DD#2 about a month ago started throwing fits at diaper changing time, we thought it was due to her being sick. Well it's gotten worse, now the last few nights she SCREAMS at bathtime (which she use to love...run to the tub) and continues to scream until she's dressed/teeth brushed. At first I thought it was b/c her big sister was still in the tub and I forgot to tell her to put her toys away before getting her out. Well last night, she started screaming the moment we put her in the tub and didn't stop until she was in her bed, where she automatically calmed down and put herself to sleep like always. Most mornings she hates being woken for daycare and cries a little but this morning it was the same battle as at bath time the last few nights. DH had to hold her down so I could get a diaper on her. After her diaper/pants were on, I put her in the corner to let her know that her scream behavior was not good. She calmed down after a few minutes and finished dressing her but as soon as I told her it was time to brush her teeth the screaming fit started again. She has always had a strong personality...I need help before this gets totally out of control.View Thread
We have a Kindle Fire and only have a few apps on them for the girls to play with...free ones. Anyway, just wanted to share that we find it HILARIOUS watching our 16 month old play a farm app. You touch the animals to hear the sound they make, well she hasn't figured out that you can touch it gently or it's just that her fingers are so small but boy does she make lots of banging noises when playing. Her chubby knuckles keep hitting it and she does this with such focus on her face. Not sure why but it totally cracks us up. Sorry no suggestions, just wanted to share our silly girl. View Thread
Sarah - the recommendation is now rear facing until they are 2 yrs old! Thankfully it wasn't that way with DD#1 b/c she wasn't happy rear facing until she hit the 20lb mark, which was 18 months. Luckily with DD#2 she has her sister to keep her occupied while rearfacing. She's been well over the 20lb mark for months but we're still waiting out the 2 yrs (she's 16 months).View Thread
