    Brought our new baby daughter home Wednesday night. Our 2 1/2 son is starting to warm up to her and show interest. Forgot how many diapers newborns go through

    Hold your kids tight. My cousin in his low-20s suffered a traumatic brain injury today while water skiing. He had to be airlifted and is in the ICU. Im a mess and I can’t imagine if he was my son rather than my cousin.

    Man newborn clothes are such a crap shoot in sizes. Some stuff little man wears 0-3 months others still in newborn sizes. It's infuriating in the middle of the night when he has a blow out trying to figure out what he fits in and doesn't. Most of the time idgaf but when mom wakes up and looks at something that's obviously too big I get a "WTF were you thinking putting him in that!"

    Freak thing that nobody can understand. His brain stem was damaged from a fall in to the water. It caused his heart and breathing to stop. They revived him and stabilized his body but it’s over. His organs are being transplanted tonight/tomorrow and he will give others a chance. He was such a special kid. HS Valedictorian despite spending weeks in the hospital undergoing chemo. While he was undergoing chemo his dad was in a coma from a botched heart surgery to fix a leaky valve. Just traumatic experiences for them. When we went through the fall with the death of my father, my father-in-law undergoing a bone marrow transplant and our son having multiple surgeries last fall I thought a lot about what my aunt had been through.

    Same. We don’t watch much of it unless under dire circumstances because I’m pretty sure there’s subliminal messaging in it geared toward turning them into mindless super soldiers when they get older.

    3.5 yo struggling hard with the changes of the newborn. Any tips besides just trying to be extra loving, patient, etc. Assuming/hoping it’s just this time that baby has all of Moms attention and will get back to normal when she has more freedom from baby.

    we tried to keep ours involved with the baby to 'help' with things like get a diaper or do bottle liners or something like that.

    Yeah doing that and giving him spontaneous rewards like stickers, lots of encouragement. Today was the first day in like 2 years that he would not let me go not wanting to go to daycare. Breaks my heart I know it’s tough for him he’s a big mommas boy.

    11yo daughter almost 12. Seems like she complains of headache and/or stomach ache daily. I feel bad for her but also so frustrating because I don’t know what causes it, can’t fix it. Well, occasionally I’ll give her motrin and that fixes headaches. Reminds me of her mom with the headaches all the time, I don’t fucking get it. I feel like a broken record with my advice of drink more water, more rest, less screen time

    Anyone else have newborns/infants that just do not stop spitting up? We went through it with first one and now second is doing the same. Read everything under the sun. Keep him upright, burp, everything. He’s not in pain, gaining weight. Him, us, bedding, everything is covered in spit up always. Probably just is what it is.

    Honestly have you taken him to his pediatrician(I'm sure you have)? My son did this constantly until he was about 12 months. About month 8 we got him prescribed some sort of medication for acid reflux. He still spit up but that helped a ton. He eventually grew out of it.

    His two week appointment is in a few days. Probably just genetics cause my first son did it whole time he breastfed and like you said around months 8-12 when we transitioned to solids it stopped. Hope pediatrician has something we can try. Don’t think it’s reflux but we’ll see.

    It's not getting much easier after our daughter just turned 4. She is incredibly controlling, bossy, inflexible, and loudly complains about so many things. I'm basically emotionally exhausted after a few hours with her by myself. She does well in daycare but it's clear she's still bossy there as well.

    I feel like whenever I talk about her now I don't have much to say other than "yeah she's a handful." Really hoping that, as many other parents have told me, when she's 6 she'll be a little more easy going.

    6 is about the age where shitbaggery really stopped with my older one and he turned into a little person. He listens really well, minimal fighting/pushback, etc.

    My 4.5yo on the other hand…

    Besides the spit up he’s good but if he soon turns into a non napping fussy ass like his older brother we will definitely try this.

    We had a son with silent reflux. He didn’t fuss or anything. But we put him on an acid reflux medicine and it got much better.
