Outdoor activities for kids in Glendale?

My son has a ton of energy and I need to get him out of our tiny apartment or he’s going to start bouncing off the walls! Please help me find somewhere outdoors in the Glendale area where he (and I) can let off some steam!

Train rides/activities for kids in Los Angeles?

For my twins’ first birthday, their auntie bought them a Thomas the Train set. They ignored it and wouldn’t play with it at all - until a few weeks ago when they became obsessed with it! Now all they talk about are trains. Trains, trains, trains! Where should an LA momma take her train-obsessed kiddos? We live on the edge of Burbank!

Newborn photographers in LA?

I never did professional baby photos with my oldest, but I’m at almost 36 weeks into my pregnancy and I’ve started thinking about doing newborn photos of my daughter when she’s born. How do they keep the babies calm, though? Has anyone had newborn photos done that they’ve been really happy with? I’m in the West Hollywood area if that helps! Also wondering if you have any suggestions on places to take a family photo with my husband, son, and newborn daughter in a few months! Outdoors would be nice!

How do I tell my child they can't play football?

My seven year old wants to play pop warner football next season, but I'm concerned about the long-term safety of him doing so. I don't want him to miss out on socializing with his friends, but I would prefer to steer him toward something safer. Anyone else encounter this, or am I worrying too much?

My son is teething and won't eat! Advice?

My little one has started teething and it has been so painful for him that feeding has been really difficult! He barely takes his bottle at all, but I can tell he’s hungry because I can hear his stomach making noises! I’ve tried Motrin and even some Tylenol, but I don’t want to keep giving him those and they didn’t seem to help anyway.

I’m a Palmdale mom and am planning my daughter’s 4th birthday! Any places in the area you’ve had birthday parties at? I want something fun and easy to invite some of her daycare friends to! Also, any tips on how to do invites nowadays? Do I just send her to daycare with invites for the other kids or do I make a Facebook event?

Does anyone else hate the Ferber method?

Moms, am I the only one of us who HATES the Ferber method? I feel like an awful person and I feel so guilty sitting there while my daughter cries. Please tell me I’m not alone.
