Re: Frustrated custody rant

You are doing the right thing by suggesting shorter visits first. He cannot just expect those babies to go overnight with someone that is virtually a stranger to them. What a moron - he wouldn't...

Re: Sitting unsuported

Nope, though she does seem to have better control like when I sit her in my lap or in the high chair if that makes any sense.

Re: Discomfort with MIL watching baby unsupervised

I agree that she does not sound like a good first choice babysitter because she is not really tuned into what baby needs/wants. :( On the other hand, she is probably not dangerous and as you said...

Re: Girls I need some serious and honest advice re: breastfeeding!

I know it will be really hard to leave your LO, but I would leave him with daddy where you know he will be taken care of best. I would not start supplementing with any formula now though. Keep...

Re: tiny baby?

If he is doing fine with cereal, then that's great, but I wouldn't let pressure from others force you to do more with solids than you might otherwise.

All 3 of my kids have been peanuts and in the...

Re: Clothes size

Mostly 3-6 months and 6 months, but there are a few 0-3 things that still fit too. She is long, so things that get too short in the legs like sleepers she could almost move up to 6-9 months. ...

We are at about once a week too... more if there is a poop or puke incident, but those seem to be slowing down now that she is eating a few solids.

Re: Hair Loss

I have very thick hair to begin with so this is so so annoying! UGH. Cannot wait for it to let up, I feel like I am constantly vacuuming at home to keep the hair on the floor to a minimum.

Re: just a question

I think it is absolutely necessary for babies to have a little alone time (supervised from a short distance of course). They need that chance to explore a little on their own and test their own...

Re: Comments about your baby

Re: Lesson learned

Well for me, the lessons were about how I've evolved as a person and mother since my first was born (gosh, he'll be 17 tomorrow!).

Re: Attachment or Traditional (parenting)

I'm more traditional, but not 100% either. We don't cosleep or babywear, but I do breastfeed. Although I don't wear her in a sling or anything, I do hold her a lot and I take her everywhere with me...
