Her pediatrician probably would be the first place to ask about how to get things back on track. In the absence of any damage found on follow up, I am betting the case probably is that she knew she was the focus of attention after the incident and wants to keep it that way. Or she felt insecure because of all the fuss.
I suspect getting back to a routine with firm limits and reassuring patterns, as well as lots of love probably will do the trick. The relaxing of limits when you are worried about a child seems to end up biting hard--both for the family and the child. I tend to think children need limits to feel secure.View Thread
During daylight hours, keep things stimulating and active for baby. Play with her a lot. Try to keep her awake after feeds (often a losing battle).
When it's dark, become a more low-key, boring parent for your baby. Feed her in a semi-darkened room. Cut down on all stimulation (e.g. keep light and noise soft and low). Hopefully, she'll learn that daytime is fun time and night time is boring, so she might as well sleep when it's dark outside.
I never worried too much about it as I do talk in my sleep-especially as you said--when overtired or sick. But, I was curious as to whether it was just something I ignored because it isn't a big deal for me. Thank you.View Thread
Oh my, do I have Disney tips. We lived in Florida for years and had annual passes some of those years--particularly when my brood was very young. Our first Disney pictures feature my youngest, a newborn in sling, her two-year-old sister and her four year old brother. (They are now 12, 14, 16)
Good things about Disney: Nearly every ride the whole family can ride. The ones that don't-get in line and ask for a "child swap" that means one wait but parents take turns on the ride. That said--just because there isn't a height restriction--doesn't mean the ride will be appropriate for her. Some dark rides frighten toddlers (and adults) notably Pirates of Caribbean and oddly...Winnie The Pooh.
Go early in the morning--know when the "magic morning" is for each park and be there when gates open, if not a bit before.
If you want to do the Fantasyland attractions on Magic Kingdom day--head there first as gates open. Dumbo should be the first line you get in--even if the carousel beckons.
Get a park stroller--easier for toddlers, you don't have to worry about losing it, you can swap it between parks, etc.
Fastpass-fabulous. Know the opportunities, understand how they work.
Food choices vary a bit between parks. Epcot in October is fabulous for the Food and Wine Festival where you can get little sample plates for less than a meal.
Epcot is the BEST park for a Rainy day.
Don't be surprised if your toddler who loves Mickey freaks when she sees characters. Know the schedule and where to find her favorites--otherwise it is entirely possible to spend days at Disney without running into Mickey.
I tend to go heavy into the morning--then either relax at one of the sprinkler areas, shows, or back at the hotel in the afternoon. Then go back in the late afternoon.
Book your Character dining now. I like the Chef Mickey one at the Contemporary--or the one at Camp Wilderness. We did the one at the Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom a few times. We never did the Princesses at Cindy's castle. We did them once at one of the hotels, long before princesses took Disney over.
And October-a great month to go to the parks. Unless you go on Halloween or Columbus Day--the parks will not be super crowded. The weather perfect. (though pack for everything between really hot and chilly)
Slip on/off shoes are a good idea BUT not crocs or flip flops. Pack an extra pair in case one gets wet.View Thread
