When will you let your LO start using the P.C? Probably young.. for educational games

When are you going to start potty training? Actually I already bought Ben 2 potties. I am going to start working on pee training with him in the next couple of weeks. I figure if I can even catch half of his pees in a day that would be less diaper laundry.

When are you going to turn your LO's car seat around? Not sure. with my oldest I did at 1, but I think I will leave Bens turned around as long as its comfy for him.

Jasmin plays rarely peek a boo online, she hits the keyboard using all fingers
I am not sure whether they have computers in Kindergarten

When are you going to start potty training?
I still don`t know exactly, at 2 years, maybe earlier? It depends on the development of Jasmin

Jasmin will stay rear-facing as long as possible Child car seat advice questioned - Growing Up Healthy- msnbc.com so she'll stay rear-facing up to two years ( up to 30 pounds )

Will you put a T.V. in your LO's room?Not sure. Ashleigh has one in her room, but she hardly ever uses it. She'd rather watch TV in my room or in the living room. Madisyn and Emely do not have a TV
When will you let your LO start using the P.C?Well Catie already loves to pound on the keyboard
When are you going to start potty training?Probably around 2 or 2 1/2 years. My other girls didn't train until 3 1/2, so i'm not going to expect Catie to train completely before then.
When are you going to turn your LO's car seat around? Her seat is RF until 35lbs, so that's when i'll turn it around. For my kids that's usually between 2-3 years old.

When will you let your LO start using the P.C? We joke with her when she tries to grab ours that she can have her own when she turns 4. But I have no idea when we actually will get her started on one or have her own.

When are you going to start potty training? Probably around 2, as long as she seems ready.

When are you going to turn your LO's car seat around? Will keep her rear-facing for as long as possible. The seat is to 35lbs rear-facing so thats the goal.

When will you let your LO start using the P.C? Around 18 months

When are you going to start potty training? Just after her second b'day if she's ready

When are you going to turn your LO's car seat around? Not sure yet. Law here is 6 months, but Lucy is still fitting into her infant carrier really well and still has a while before she will have outgrown it. So maybe then.

Bailey will probably have a tv in her room w/o cable, like the boys did when they were little-little. When we moved here they got cable, but only watch cartoons. Im thinking whenver she gets her own room shell have a tv

Bailey will be able to go on the PC when she starts showing in interest in it. Thomas was 2.5, Collin still cant really do any of the games that thomas plays..

we will introduce the potty when she is walking, but wont start pushing the issue until 2-3

Bailey will probably turn around right at 1, like the boys, If I can convince DH she may stay RF a bit longer

The magnet schools around here have 1 computer in each of the preschool classrooms (3 and 4 y/o classes) and the kindergarten classes have 5 in each class. Thomas is thrilled about this.

Not until she is 5-8 years old and only w/out cable. Xavier(5) has one in his room for purely white noise to sleep. He's like his dad and likes the whitenoise and flickering to sleep. He doesn't even make it through the beginning credits of a movie before he's fast asleep.

When will you let your LO start using the P.C?
Whenever she is interested

When are you going to start potty training?
Whenever she seems interested and the signs are all there. Not going to push the issue.

When are you going to turn your LO's car seat around?
Not until she is at least 2 years old. I've talked to dh about it and we are both in agreement. We might even do it like the parents in Sweden and not turn her around until she's 4...we shall see, but definitely not until she's at least 2

TV in room? NEVER. We are building our next home and only putting cable jacks in the living room and our room.

PC use? Now. I let Hugo type on Word pad at 5 mos. Supervised of course.

Potty? I'd say once he walks but I think he'll be walking any week now. So once he can walk and sign/say "potty" or after his birthday, if he doesn't do all that before then. It will just be an introduction until he really feels ready to ask for it and use it himself.

Car seat? After he's 1 and over 20 lbs. Just because it makes our front passenger side so extremely tight and uncomfortable for any length ride. We're going on a trip around his b-day so when we get back that is probably when.

Will you put a T.V. in your LO's room? don't know, if we do it will be quite a while from now.
When will you let your LO start using the P.C? Ava uses it now and has been for a while. So whenever he's interested.
When are you going to start potty training? Also whenever he shows interest. I know with Ava she was off and on for a while, then all of a sudden she was really ready.
When are you going to turn your LO's car seat around? I'm surprised (and happy) to see so many extended rear facers. I just turned Ava's around this weekend. As long as he's comfy he'll stay there. Ava never complained about it at all. Then last week she started saying her back hurt when we went in the car for any length of time. I think the angle of her body and legs just started to get uncomfortable.
