A mom writes in asking for advice about buying toys for her daughter. She says that she and her husband disagree about whether they should buy more toys for their 5-year-old. Her husband wants to buy more toys for her, while this mom worries buying more would only spoil her. She says her daughter has a doll, a dollhouse, and a ring toss game for outside. Should they buy more?
When tackling complicated subjects, books can help to foster rich conversations between adults and children. Thankfully, an abundance of authors are writing literature to help little ones learn about the LGBTQ+ community, encouraging them to develop a sense of identity, love, equality, empathy, and to ultimately build community.
Getting your child to sleep — and sleep well — sometimes feel like an Olympic sport. Whether you choose to cry it out, co-sleep, or some combination of both, there are many developmental changes that can affect your child’s sleep patterns, particularly during their first few years. There are different approaches for how to address sleep challenges with your child and we’ve rounded up some of our favorite recommendations, many of which are from our Mamas Uncut Community.
Nesting is a natural part of preparing for a baby, including setting up their nursery with all of the items you’ve lovingly picked out ahead of their arrival. Some nurseries stick to a simple design, focusing on the necessary furniture, while others are more elaborate, decked out with over-the-top design elements and décor.
Breastfeeding can be a rewarding experience and another great opportunity to bond with your baby throughout the day. That doesn’t mean it’s simple by any means, though. The breastfeeding process can pose challenges to even the most confident mom that can make you ask, “What am I doing?!” You might not produce enough milk, you might have trouble with latching or you might be overwhelmed by the idea of breastfeeding in public.
A mom writes in asking for potty training advice for her 2-year-old daughter. She says she had decided to start potty training her daughter and wants to know if she can use diapers, which she has leftover, versus moving to Pull-Ups, which many moms often use during the potty training phase. Would that work? Any other potty training advice for this mom?
A mom writes in asking for advice about the things she needs to get before her baby arrives. Though it is her second child, she says “pregnancy brain is real,” and given everything that is going on in the world, she wants to make sure her bases are covered. She already has a lot but wants to know if she left anything important off the list.
Meghan King Edmonds is under fire after posting a selfie on Instagram Stories with the caption, “This angel found a melatonin gummy in mama’s purse leftover from our flight.” The ex “Real Housewives of Orange County” star was referencing her three-year-old daughter Aspen, who fell asleep after eating the gummy.
My daughter is 19 months old. She would hate food if you were to ask me what her favorite food was. I cannot give you an answer because she does not have one. She is in the 50th percentile for her weight and 90th for her height. Just recently, I was getting her to eat very well with the distraction of an iPad or a game on the iPad and me feeding her….That did not last long. She is now refusing me to feed her and does not want to feed herself. I set her down at the table with her plate of food, and sometimes she eats nothing and sits there and cries the whole time. Sometime she’ll pick what she wants, maybe strawberries, or perhaps a few blueberries. Nothing significant. I am not the type of mom to sit there and say I need to bring her to feeding therapy or to the doctor because she doesn’t like eating. I see that she is a kid and kids are difficult. I’m just wondering if anybody has any tips to try to help her to want to eat. If there any other moms out there going through the same …
