tiny baby

Hi Bree I wouldn't worry about things to much, though I know how you feel for my guy was and still is small for his age. He was 5 lbs 6 oz when born and at one years he was about 19 lbs. My guy didn't eat alot- not even as a newborn and still doesn't. He was seen by a specialist and he said that as ...

diaper rash

My son used to get diaper rashes all the time when he was young and we found penaten cream worked the best however, because it's so sticky we were told to mix in a little vaseline with it.- it comes off soo much easier and I didn't feel like I was scrubbing off my sons skin with the cream. We also u...

My son just turned 4 dec 15 and My husband and I have decided that most likely we will be holding him back for a year. This will give him a whole year to grow in all areas of dev and hopefully, give him a positive beginning to school. We made this choice for a few reasons. for starters we are workin...

4 year old hates hair cuts.

Hi Everyone, I'm hoping that someone has some suggestions for me. My 4 year old outright refuses to get his hair cut. His first hair cut was at 6 months- yes 6 months he had so much hair that he was constantly being mistaken for a girl. Anyhow, since then we have gone every 2 months to the same hair...

Thanks everyone for you support. I'm glad that i am not the only one going through this and maybe in a year or so it will get easier. It is just so frustrating. One of our recent trips to the barber (his hair dresser) I left almost in tears, and my son kicking and screaming. I gave him the choice of...

I don't know if this will help but maybe nurse her as usaual, sit with her for a little while untill she is almost a sleep then gently put her down in her room in her bed. Put on some quiet soothing lullabies and maybe sit beside her bed for a few minutes (5 or 10 minutes)untill she's asleep or almo...

I was told he has reactive airways and now each time he has a cold and cough we put him on his inhalors right away- seems to work especially at night time when he coughs the most. But there are alot of viruses out there that tak...

Thanks Sue, it does look like we have a few things in common. I think you will love scrapbooking. I do, but it takes time and right now I am about a year behind in scrapbooking, but when I have the time I find it very relaxing. I would love to meet up with you and the other moms at the park one day,...

Thanks everyone for your input. We have tried cutting his hair while asleep. It worked while he was young but now it doesn't. Home buzz jobs don't work either. I have also explained to him that it takes mommy longer to clean his hair for I have to use more shampoo etc... oh well, that's my boy-he ca...

Re: noo trick or treaters :(

We only had 16 this year, though we normally don't get much. I do have to say that the streets in our neighbourhood was really quiet. Usually there are tons of people on the side streets, but this year only a hand full. People were saying it was really quiet as they usually get about 200 and they on...

Re: Drawing issues

that sounds like my son when younger-wasn't interested in drawing and had a hard time visualizing things, plus he is very particular that things have to be perfect. Now that he is older, he is drawing more and more on his own and we have encouraged him to do do. We have provided a variety of art sup...
