    you may want to check that your brother and sister in law will really be okay with having you with DS going down... reason I say that is that although they may love your DS, it may also be a painful r more »

    DD loves giving orders. "Stand up, Mama!" and suddenly she is obsessed with the jogging stroller (we had put it out to the side for a while since she refused to go in it... and one day, she wanted to more »

    None of the balance bikes we looked at had hand brakes. For us, with the kids having small hands, we felt that was not important - plus we did not want to make it too daunting with the biking. DS just more »

    We used the strider for DS and reusing it for DD (she has hopped on a few times, on her own request). DS moved to specialized balance bike and that is what he uses now - most likely, he will use this more »

    One thing DH is absolutely fanatical about is dental care (mostly because of dental history in his family). And then seeing a 3 or 4 year old with a mouth of capped teeth at a b-day party DS attended more »

    thanks, everyone! we were just taken aback about flashcards at this age. We have tried to incorporate some fine motor skills periodically - sometimes we can get him to join his little sister for artwo more »

    from what I understood from DH, seems to be more vocabulary... it came up from what I heard was his mother was trying to coax out of him "what does that apple slice look like? remember we worked on th more »

    it is not too early for molars. DD's first full set already started to pop out when we went to her 12 month well check last year and I think they take longer to come up than the front teeth (i.e. we n more »

    We now live where there is no snow, and although I never liked the daily hassle incurred by snowstorms like shoveling snow to get my car out, I do miss the ease of a short drive to NH for skiing. DH a more »

    the time change has been brutal for us so far. It has messed with bedtimes, and since it gets dark later, the kids want to go outside now after they get home and before dinner... DD woke up last night more »

    IPW - I can not recall exactly when DD started to spit up a lot and more regularly but it was not in the first few months, so I was taken aback when it seemed out of the blue that she would spit up mo more »

    i am surprised that the teacher is sharing her lunch - mostly from a liability standpoint. At our daycare, they make meals for the whole center, and the infant rooms would have those same meals droppe more »

    independent play - DS at 3.5 can play with his trains and monster trucks for a long while. DD at 17 months has more limited span where she can keep herself content - but when it comes to artwork, she more »

    poppy, i am not sure when they really start "writing". DS is same age as your DD, and he does not even get one letter so I am impressed she is doing her name, as labor-intensive as it is. ┬áHis prescho more »

    poppy, I also think it depends on the kids. DS, even though they did and do lots of crayons/markers at daycare, never showed interest in markers... the only time was when he was into Harold and the Pu more »

    Although it does not always work, once in a while, when DS (3.5 years) turned his nose at something, if I start to eat it off his plate, he will quickly dig in and see why I like it so much. That is h more »

    We have the same issue with bedtime routine if the kids have not been able to go outside. Weekends, we have found indoor soccer and will be adding swimming - to get them tired. During the week, if the more »

    It is over the course of 24 hours that you need to check for wet diapers (I believe the minimum is like 3-4 wet diapers in 24 hours) - and signs like no tears when crying or no drool that are also a c more »

    We used the moby wrap and the K'Tan when they were newborns (K'Tan is way easier than a wrap - easy even for DH, but he had to have his own and I had to have mine because K'Tan are not one size fits a more »

    we just got back from flying with DS (3 years) and DD (14 months) and we got seats for each of them, and lugged their car seats. We tried 6-7 months ago to skip the car seat for our then 2.5 year old, more »

    KAM - we now always do that second goodbye for our 3 year old son (it is so much easier to drop him off first then the toddler) - because he always wants that hug from me without DD around before I le more »

    You will need to do what is best for you - bf or formula or both. Although I am fortunate to have been able to nurse for as long as the kids (second is still nursing), DH and I always had known that w more »

    Not sure if this helps... but when DS started his current daycare at 18 months, he refused to touch any fruit unless it was in one of the few pouches he loved and at school, he would eat the veggies b more »

    talking - DS did not really talk until after 18 months (he barely met the minimum count they ask about at 15 months and 18 months) so at his 18 month check, I think we had maybe 10 words. By 24 months more »

    Sienna, i am wondering - which activity table? I don't recall seeing one that is embedded with noise. We got a train table for DS - we noticed he would be cruising around to try to get his toys on it, more »
