my son is 8 months old and though he doesn't have cystic fibrosis have the doctors offered any breathing treatment to help your son with his breathing or at all at least until he makes it to the other doctor? My son has always had breathing problems and the treatments have really helped him considerablyView Thread
My son is only 8 months old and I have just recently started putting him on a very short time out. When he starts to do things that are just mean like biting pinching and pulling hair I simply tell him no and try to distract him. He also smacks in the face now even for an 8 month old he is strong and I know that he doesn't completely understand what he's doing. So I sit him in his playpin for like maybe 2 or 3 minutes not really meant as a punishment period but more like a little bit or time to calm and cool down. And since babies don't really have any idea or concept of time that 2 or 3 minutes really helps a lot. Now I honestly don't know about the high chair I wouldn't do that b/c that could send some mixed signals, when my sons sees his highchair he know its time for num-nums and I like it that way that way he has started to get a sort of routine. But being the mother of a small infant shes probally just stressed out and may not know what else to do to change the situation. if you have any other ideas why don't you try telling her see if she might be interested in trying themView Thread
