3-Day Potty Training Tips!

Hey everyone! I am in desperate need of help for some quick 3 day potty training tips. I have seen so many articles on it and I think my son can do it but I just want to hear from personal experiences on whether it really works or not and how you did it! Articles can sometimes be very deceiving and I don't want to take their advice and then my son is traumatized to pee in the toilet!

Medically trained childcare for my 5-year-old daughter?

Hello everyone! My daughter is developmentally delayed and we are trying to find recommendations to daycare that can handle G-Tube feeding, which might sound tough but is actually very easy and safe. She is very happy and easy going. She does not walk or crawl yet. We need to work full-time to be able to afford her bills so this is mostly during the weekdays. We are "in the red" most times since we are unable to put in the hours. Any thoughts on a good place would be much appreciated. Thank you.

How to know when my baby's first teeth are coming in!

I think my baby's tooth is coming in, she keeps on crying and I know it's not because she's hungry or hurt! How do I know for sure if that's the case though? My big fear is that it's something hurting internally that I cannot see.

How to keep my toddler from rolling off his bed at night!

My child has been having a hard time sleeping in one position and is always rolling over! He's only 3 so I get it, but I wonder if placing a railing on the bed would hurt him? I currently let him roll onto another mattress that we have laying on the ground, but I also want to let his body learn that rolling will hurt if nothing is there. Is this wrong?

When can I start using a baby sling?

My husband wants to begin using a baby sling for our 4 month old and I don't know if it's too early or if that's the best route to take. I'm scared it may be bad for my baby's posture. Opinions?

How regular should my child's bedtime be?

How strict should my husband and I be about bedtime for our 5-year-old? He never stays up too late, of course, but we have trouble getting him to bed at a consistent time each night - partly because of my husband’s unpredictable work schedule. Our LO wants to wait up for him. Does this matter?

2 and a half year-old won't potty train!

Our girl is past the 2 1/2 year mark and is just not down to potty train. I can tell she is ready in some ways (wants her diapers changed asap) but we’re having a hard time transitioning. Don’t wanna force it before she’s ready, but worried I’m screwing her up if she wears diapers for too long.

Do toddler seats work for potty training?

My husband and I have been trying to potty train my son but we have been struggling with him wanting to sit on the toilet. We currently use a training potty for him but he resists so much! I'd love to get feedback on what other people use. Any tips for potty training? Should we get a toddler seat?

How do I encourage my toddler to be active?

What are some “active” playtime ideas I can do with our 4-year-old? We’re in an apartment without a yard, so ideally indoor-friendly unless we’re at the park. Want my son to start building good habits because his older brother is way too into video games.
