Best birthday parties to have at our home?

Dear friends,
My son will be 4 y.o. in February. Could you please advise me on your favorite event companies? I think he will be happy with a Bounce house.

My 5-year-old is sick. How do I keep him from infecting our infant?

We have a 5-year-old at home and are expecting a baby girl next month. Our son is excited to be a big brother, but I’m worried about keeping those kindergarten colds and germs from our newborn. I didn’t go out and about to many public places with our son when he was a young infant for the same reason. Tips on how to handle without upsetting big brother or worse, getting baby sick?

How do I get ready when I have little kids?!

Any tips on how to make mornings with little ones less stressful? I just returned to work last month after being a stay-at-home mom for three years, so our 3-year-old started daycare. The shift has been tough on all of us. He’s having tantrums, a hard time with wake-ups, issues with eating his breakfast, you name it.

What is the difference between daycare and preschool? And which is better?

I’m looking for childcare for my 2-year-old and am getting frustrated. I can’t swing the cost of many and others have laughable waitlists. Plus, everyone tells me something different about what to pick. What’s the difference between preschool and daycare? Which is better?

Where do I buy formal clothes for my toddlers?

Hi there WeeCare parents - I need help with finding some good stores in the NoHo LA area for children’s formal clothes. My sister’s wedding is coming up and I will need a dress for my 4 yo and a little suit for my 2 yo! A store that also sells formal shoes for kiddos would be a PLUS! Also, we all know that they’re going to grow out of these outfits before I have a chance to blink, so somewhere not too expensive would be amazing too!

How does part-time daycare work?

I’m a SAHM and I work remotely from home part-time. Now that my daughter is a toddler and very mobile, it’s hard to set aside uninterrupted work time. I also worry that she’s not getting enough social interaction with other kids. Should I consider part-time daycare? A nanny? I feel torn (and a bit guilty), but need to find a solution.

What questions should I ask during daycare/preschool interviews?

My husband and I just started the process of picking a preschool for our daughter. We’ve toured a few and we’re having a hard time deciding - what questions should we be asking the teachers to help narrow down the best option?
