TikTok is not just for Gen Z but they are for moms and their babies too. If you are not familiar with the platform, which is similar to Vine, the app is condensed of short and usually funny clips. The latest trend is to throw water over babies and film their reactions, and while many of the mothers claim no baby was harmed in the making of the video — the baby’s faces say otherwise. The last mom challenge that went viral on TikTok was mothers showing their boobs to breastfed babies and recording their reactions. But as you can imagine, the water challenge is bringing out different emotions than the aforementioned videos… @mikaylamatthews I’m never doing a Tik Tok trend again ????????

Gender reveals are all the rage and an exciting way to find out whether you’re having a boy or a girl. Couples plan thoughtful – and sometimes elaborate – ways to find out the news, including popping balloons filled with pink or blue confetti, cutting into cakes filled with pink or blue buttercream, or staging gender reveal parties in their backyards. Most of the time, the plans work out great, but every once in awhile, things don’t go exactly according to plan, leading to hilarious, though very disappointing, gender reveals.
The gender reveal trend isn’t new, so it can be tough to come up with unique ways of finding out whether you’re having a boy or a girl. Many couples have done the tried-and-true confetti balloon, pink or blue iced cake, or blue or pink smoke bombs to reveal the gender of their baby, much to the delight of friends and family.
A mom writes in asking for advice about her 11-month-old baby who, she says, refuses to eat any food other than baby food. She has tried a ton of different baby-safe foods, but nothing has taken. Her son will only eat baby food with cereal mixed in. If she gives him something else, like peas or eggs or banana, “he will gag until he makes himself throw up.” Do you have any advice for this mom?
A mom writes in asking for advice about her 8-month-old baby. She says her baby still wakes up three times a night, and the only thing that will get her back to sleep is breastfeeding/nursing. This mom says her daughter eats (solid food) at about 6 every night, is put down for sleep around 7:30, but wakes up three times a night and needs to nurse in order to fall back asleep. This mom is tempted to start the switch to formula to see if that helps change this behavior, but she doesn’t want to give up breastfeeding just yet, if possible.
