[ - ] When you moved your toddler out of the crib into a bed, did s/he have sleep issues for a while? How long? 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

We just did this a few weekends ago - and surprisingly, no sleep issues at all. But, our new routine is that we sit in his room for five minutes after he gets in bed (after books), and then walk out of the room. He's a little explorer, and for some reason, he won't get out of his bed like I was expecting. [ Reply | More ]

she looks uncomfortable to you but this is all she knows. think about it - she was squished in the womb for months (not comfortable by our standards) and she's fine. just try and relax and recognize that this is what you need to do. she'll be fine and never even remember it. sorry. [ Reply | More ]

I also had it and so did my sister - we were in casts as older babies, 3-9 months. I have no memory (obv) and no issues, but my mother said we SMELLED and were filthy! My sister was older in the cast (9 months) and learned to crawl, she would drag her lower half in the cast all over. You dd will be fine I am sure. My first dd had clicky hips and I was afriad she would have hip dysplacia but turned out it was just clicky hips. Hang in there. [ Reply | More ]

Seems like you really need to put your foot down. Just make the appt and tell him where to show up. If he really doesn't want to do it, this may tell you this is not going to work. Sorry but better to know now than after you marry. The stats on 2nd marriages are pretty bleak. With a little help you can probably make it work but if he reufuses, it's a really bad sign [ Reply | More ]
