Re: Having a hard time and could use some support

No advice to share - sounds like you're doing what you can do. I hope things go well, and it's nice to hear that Layla is a happy little girl. It seems like a lot of kids this age still play...

Re: Qotd 6/21

I don't think Max has tried. We think he may be trying to say my husband's and my first names, though. Weird! He says mama and dada all the time, so hopefully he's just experimenting.

Re: Bedtime

Max is on his crib mattress, on the floor. We have a thin air mattress next to it to help cushion his falls. It's not unusual for him to end up sleeping on the air mattress or even the wood floor. ...

Re: Diaper changing

I worked hard to teach Max not to kick during diaper changes, and he usually doesn't. When he does, I hold his legs still and count to 10 out loud, starting over every time he kicks. He certainly...

Re: 2013 by 2013?

Productive! I am just taking a little computer break. :)

Re: Feeding themselves

Max is pretty good using a spoon with really soft food, and sometimes he uses a fork. But he mostly uses his hands. I'm sometimes amazed at the amount of oatmeal or yogurt he can shove into his...

Re: Time-outs?

Sort of. When he was hitting, I would put him in the crib or playpen for a while (and we would both cool off); then I would ask him to show me "gentle touch" and he would touch my face gently. Now...

YES! We're down to BFing twice per day. Every little bit of weaning has been mommy-led... Max looooooves BFing! My plan is to take it down to once per day if/when I get pregnant, and let him...

Re: Potty Training?

We're at the introduction stage. I tried free "naked time" with Max, just in the bathroom, and it was awful! He peed every few minutes and started laying down in it before I could wipe it up. ...

Re: Are you

SAHM. I was a teacher before, too, and boy did I ever work at home! That's a tough gig -- I will be looking to do something else when I go back to work. I'm hoping to have a second child and go...

Re: How far along were you

I got a positive at-home test result the first day of my missed period, and I already suspected because my "PMS" was different.

Re: Tuesday Talkers

DS doesn't say "no" yet but he can do an expressive head-shake. His favorite words right now are "up," "on," and "all done".

Re: Qotd 6/7

Not very neurotic in general, but even my very clean mom thought I was a little overboard with cleaning DS's bottles a certain way.

Re: Late talker?

DS only had 3 words at 16 months, and the doctor noted the delay but said they don't really consider treatment until a child is 6 months behind the usual pattern. She told me to keep track of all...

Re: Hi all!!

If you haven't already, you might consider checking out "Baby Signing Time" DVDs from the library. I feel like Max really learns a lot from them.

Re: Pool fun?

Max had indoor swim lessons earlier this year. He seemed to have fun some of the time. He really hated the floaty noodles though.

Re: Hi all!!

Hi, and welcome! I'm Hope, SAHM to Max. I love doing sign language with Max -- he seems to catch on easier than he does with speech.
