  • Unswaddle 5 month all with eczema and pacificier

    Hi all the super mommies! I have 5-month-old baby boy and he’s starting to roll over soon, in a matter of time, cuz I can see him arching is back quite often when he lays on his back… So I’m thinking and preparing myself to unswaddle him!! TAADA (horrifying) He’s been swaddle since day one and can only fall asleep with it and with a pacifier! And he’s been having this eczema skin which makes him scratch himself all the time, (his face, legs…most of the time bloody! I have his nails cut and trim every day). I tried once to unswaddle him with one arm and he just kept knocking his dummy out and scratch himself… So my question is what would you do? andy similar stories and successful or unsuccessful stories or tips? At this moment we are room sharing and the sleep training is quite successful (i don’t need to hold him or rock him to sleep, he can sleep by himself after the bed routine) But I guess once I unswaddle him, everything will be different huh?

    New mom, am due any day. My husband and I were wondering, if our baby has a bad diaper rash are we able to put cream or powder on the area and them let air out? Or should the area be immediately covered again?

  • Boggie Sucker Machine

    We were given an electronic nose plunger thing at my baby shower. It plays music and does am awesome job of clearing our little boys nose. We normally don’t use it though because he hates it and screams like we’re torturing him and he had gotten good at letting us use the old school nose plunger thing a little. But lately he has had a little cold and his nose is running like crazy and the old school one is just not cutting it. I have had to use the battery operated machine one and it works amazingly and gets everything out of his nose every time I just feel like complete crap doing it because the whole time he’s crying screaming and trying to get away from me. And not a normal tantrum or whiny on ornery cry his whole face turns red his body stiffens up and even though I don’t think it’s hurting him and he acts just fine when it’s all done it kills me. I wish the old school nose plunger saying worked just as good as the machine one does but it just doesn’t . please help!! should I keep using the machine or just do the best I can with the old school one???

  • Soothing Techniques Are Not Working! Could it be gas?

    My newborn often cries very hard for 20-30 min at a time. I have heard that many times parents think their newborn has gas but they just aren’t using soothing techniques correctly. However, I feel like I have tried all methods swaddling, sucking, rigorous swinging etc. How can I tell if it is gas or just a fussy newborn?

    Is it only at a certain time of day? My babies both were fussy for 45 minutes or so at night every …
  • 9 months old suddenly hates eating and gags

    My daughter has been eating solid food since she was 6 months old and have basically tried everything including chicken, turkey and beef with some veggies and fruits but not forgetting rice cereal and oatmeals. Up till recently, she has been gagging on food that I feed her and then refuse to eat. She is also taking less amount of milk but still taking them regardless. Just 20% less then the normal and her weight is steady. She did have a cold a few days ago and her pediatrician checked her and confirms she has no sore throat but just a normal cold. She has not started any finger foods nor one of those yogurt bites because ive tried the yogurt bites and i think she almost choked on it. Any other moms out there experienced the same thing? I did some research and some say to try finger foods and some say it is just a phase but it can take between a few weeks to many months. Her daycare teacher also said that it is normally and she would not worry about it but as a first time mom to a baby that previously would eat all day and anything that goes in her mouth, i am a little bit concerned. Any ideas?

    Hi Diane! Thanks for the update! So glad she is eating again!
  • Three week old won't sleep on her own

    My three week old doesn’t seem to want to sleep anywhere except on a person. I’ve been sleeping sitting on the couch at night with her lying on my chest. I have a pack-n-play in our bedroom right next to my side of the bed. If I try to have her sleep there, between feeding, fussing, and small noises when she finally calms down my husband and I get no sleep at all before she has to feed again. I tried this a few times and by around 3 am I give up and wind up on the couch again to get any sleep at all. Is this a phase she’ll grow out of on her own? Is there anything I can do to encourage her to sleep quietly in the pack and play for at least two hours between feeds so I can sleep in my own bed for at least a little while?

    Just let your child sleep with you. My son almost never slept in his crib. He loved to snuggle with…
