Should I give my nanny paid sick days?

So I’ve been interviewing some potential nannies, and one that I interviewed this week asked me if she would have paid holidays and sick days. This is my first time hiring a nanny and I wasn’t sure what to answer with! I hadn’t originally planned on sick days. What have other moms done with their nannies?

How do I get my 2 year-old to talk more?

My little man just turned two and he doesn’t seem to be talking as much as the other kids his age that we know. The pediatrician said he’s a little behind. He speaks pretty often, just not in very long sentences. He mostly just says one or two words at a time. I’m going to start him in daycare this week, so hopefully being around other kids who are talking will help. Any advice for me on helping him talk a little more?

How do I get my son to stop needing his pacifier?

My two-year-old is addicted to his pacifier. He sleeps with one in his mouth and also one in both hands! Does anyone have any good tips on the best way to help transition a toddler to not using the pacifier anymore?

Child swim schools in LA?

Does anyone know of any swim schools in Los Angeles? Summer is almost here and I want my little one to have a head start before we’re spending more time by the water! She’s totally afraid of going in the pool outside of our apartment right now.

Are cloth diapers worth it?

My husband and I decided we were going to use cloth diapers for our daughter. We’re pretty environmentally conscious, and it seemed like the better choice for the environment. It’s been about two weeks with our daughter using cloth diapers, though, and it is such a hassle. Are cloth diapers worth it? Does anyone have any tips on how to make them easier to wash/use?

Are used car seats safe for my child?

I have two kids and I’m expecting again! We used a hand-me-down car seat with my second child and, after using it for about six months, I realized that it had expired before we even began using it! Anyway, I’m looking for a good quality car seat for the new baby that is also affordable. Any advice on this? What are your opinions on purchasing a second-hand one?
