"Well, I had a few things I insisted on, and got those done. I'd have liked more choices, but I had planned on a home birth, and didn't give a lot of thought to the hospital, except for the potential OB, declining shots, and which hospital…"
"RT isn't very aggressive, as long as no one's trying to take his food or drink. He will push them away, but that's really about it, so far. He's been bitten a few times, and pushed, that I know of. He'll push back, but as…"
"No snow here. Almost never, lol. We'll be heading south to FL, so absolutely no chance unless there's some freakishly weird weather. My LO is enjoying the lights, but we didn't put any ornaments up..."
"I'd love to be able to homeschool. I've about lost faith in our public schools, and wouldn't be teaching except that I have a mortgage to pay. My hands are SO tied that it's rediculous. Until the public wakes up and realizes that…"
"I hated watching that thing as a kid, so we don't watch it in my house. My sister does, with her kids. ... But then, we are part of the 2% of households that don't even own a TV (by choice, in our case), so..."
"My boy has super thin hair, too. It's just now touching the tip of his ears, and both of the adults in the house have long hair, so he may or may not get a cut. Up to him... by the time it's ready to cut, he'll be able to let us know,…"
"Yes and no. They have advantages and disadvantages, too, but it sure has helped him with drinking out of a regular cup with me! He still spills a lot, so we only use it for water (rarely juice, mostly we drink water), and use a soft spout sippy for…"
"We just stopped using bottles, in favor of a sippy with a soft spout. He's managed to poke the flap out of it so that it isn't leak proof anymore, but we're already transitioning to one of those 360 rim cups. He does like to turn that…"
"How do we share pictures? I don't have an attachment button. .. RT is almost twice the length, and 2.5 times heavier than when he was born. He eats like a horse... about 7 cups of food daily, and 3 or four bf sessions. Checkup went fine, but no…"
"We just bought a tolo shape sorter. I looked at several before buying this one, and decided against most of them due to problems opening them. He really seems to enjoy the rattle sounds of the shapes, but he's not so interested in putting them…"
"Sorry about the late reply, but walkers should be used with moderation. The only time that I've heard that they do damage or are a problem is when you leave the little one in them for too long at one time."
"Some things he protests, but if he doesn't think of it as "his", it's just to see if I'll give in, I think. I don't distract him when I do, even if he fusses, because he has to get over the fact that sometimes I will…"
"I don't think shoes encourage walking. Think about it, most shoes are hard soled and awkward for a baby to deal with. They twist the kegs into weird positions while they crawl or lie in the floor to play. The tendons and ligaments in the feet…"
