Hi Everyone! My name is Sheila and I am a proud mother of a 10 month old. My baby is healthy and happy, which is great, but the problem is me. I feel like I never have any energy and I am still carrying a lot of my baby weight. [...]

Hey @peterandy – Just wanted to give you a quick update. We have had some warmer weather here so I have been able to get the stroller out for some walks with Dylan. We walked over 4 miles today! I haven’t done that since before I was

It can be an exciting and messy time when it comes to introducing solid foods to young infants. With all the foods that are located on the market, it can be hard to figure out what your baby should be receiving. It also can be difficult to think about when [...]

I wrote a blog about my experience with the premature birth of my son and his time at Winnie Palmer (not specifically named in the blog as I don't have permission to do so).

Are there any other moms here who exclusively breast feed their babies? My little one is almost four months old and she only seems to be having bowel movements once every 5-6 days. She seems happy and not in any distress at all so I haven't wanted to take her [...]

Haha, she was saving it up for you 🙂 As long as you, your doctor and she are happy with her pooping schedule then that’s what matters!

I am due with baby #2 in about a month. I used disposable diapers with my first child but am considering cloth diapers now. I have been doing some research but the information is overwhelming. I would love to know if anyone has any advice or recommendations to [...]

We used Bum Genius diapers… outer easy wash shell with terry cloth insert. It was a nice cross between the disposables and basic cloth diapers.

Hello again. I am returning to my part time job soon and have been working on transitioning my breast feed baby to a bottle for a couple of feedings a day and I am having no luck. He refuses to take the bottle at all and is constantly trying to [...]

Posted by @lendychapman, Mar 11, 2016

I found that letting someone else feed my baby with a bottle first really helped. The first time or two I even had to leave the house because if she smelled me she would want to nurse instead! But, it really was helpful to start with someone else, and eventually

One of the most challenging aspects of caring for young children is simply not knowing if and when something is wrong with them. Infants and toddlers can't communicate what they're feeling or what may be bothering them, so it often becomes a guessing game when parents sense something isn't right.

Does anyone have any hints or suggestions for getting a 2 month old to fall asleep and stay asleep for longer than 30 minutes or so? He eats well but still seems to wake up often. A friend recommended chamomile tea mixed with breast milk, has anyone else tried that? [...]

Posted by @blueskye, Feb 18, 2016

I have swaddled all of my kids. It was the only way that they could sleep. I used the swaddle wraps with the velcro as well because they would immediately get their hands free if I tried swaddling in just a blanket. I also found that the younger kids slept

Hello again. Has anyone had any experience with baby breathing monitors? I am constantly worrying about my little one and I had a friend recommend them to me. When I looked them up, they are quite expensive so I was just wondering if anyone else might have used them and [...]

@albanymom I think we all worry about our little ones in the night, no matter what. 🙂 I think you should ultimately use whatever gives you the most piece of mind and allows you to relax and get some rest as well. You might still check with your pediatrician as

Hello. My newest baby is about 6 weeks old and I seem to be constantly struggling with diaper rash. I use creams and powders and change her often but it doesn't seem to get any better. I didn't have any trouble with my older two so this is a new [...]

Babies are definitely very much their own creatures with very distinct personalities and needs….that’s what makes it more fun 😉 I’d definitely keep the doctor posted on how she is doing and hopefully they can provide insight to give more relief!
