I've been giving DS some time off of meds these past few weeks, even though it's a bad allergy time, because he was acting sleepy at school. I think he's just going to have to figure it out, though, becaue he isn't feeling well. He takes Flonase in the spring and summer, but I switch to Zyrtec for fall because it's too dry for nose sprays, and he gets bloody noses as a result. View Thread
I have no advice. Can you try a gradual transition - maybe let her sleep in a pack and play in your room for a while?
DS slept in his own room from day 1, and has never wanted to sleep with any of us. This backfired, of course, when we went to his grandfather's this summer, and he got sick, but then REFUSED to sleep in the bed with us. Poor guy.View Thread
Wow! That's great that the teacher did that, but I'm sorry she's not feeling well. I've been having headaches lately, but I'm pretty sure those are from my allergies.
I had a teacher once make me a mug of hot cocoa while we waited for my mom to pick me up when I started running a fever at school. It turned out I had bronchitis, and was really sick, but I still remember how nice it was for the teacher to do that for me.View Thread
Oh, I totally feel you on all of this! My DS is also in Special Ed for a speech delay, and we had all sorts of enrollment issues this year, which is bizarre, since he's been getting preschool services for almost 2 years already. The school district first tried to enroll him in all-day pre-k, which was not in his IEP, and it took several days to get it straightened out. Fortunately, we got him in a class with a wonderful teacher (the same one he's had since he started), but it took an additional 4 days AFTER school started to get the bus service straightened out.View Thread
We do swim lessons 2 mornings a week (pre-K is in the afternoons), and Sunday School starts this weekend. I don't want to overschedule either, but if DS tells me something else he wants to do, then we'll try it out!View Thread
Some kids just have weird oral fixations, and chew on stuff. There's really nothing wrong with it, from a behavioral standpoint, but as PP said, it can be dangerous. My son used to do that too, and we made him a chewy necklace to use instead. He NEVER puts stuff in his mouth anymore, actually, so I guess it worked!View Thread
DS used his for about 6 months, but his bed is a little higher up off the ground than most other beds (thanks, furniture delivery guys!). He fell out a few times, but mostly because he was screwing around, and hanging off upside down. But in the course of normal sleep, he has never fallen out.
Yes, I agree with PP - if he is just dancing because he's excited, it's not the PeePee dance. Unless he isn't peeing at all, and is just dancing, then there isn't anything to be concerned about.View Thread
