It would entirely depend on things like if you're comfortable raising that many children, can receive financial help for taking them in, afford help, etc.
Personally, I wouldn't do it. I don't...

Probably not a topic anyone likes to bring up, BUT:
Has your baby ever fallen from a sofa, changing table, bed, etc?
Or, in the same vein, have you (or anyone else) ever dropped your baby?
I don't think I'd try for a specific month...I *might* try to avoid a holiday season birth, but I doubt I'd try all that hard.

I would be concerned, but wouldn't automatically rule it out.
I think it would be acceptable (depending on the group of children, size of the movie theater, etc.) for the mother to go to the...

I have one for my daughter. I was pretty skeptical of it, but it seemed like it might have some mild effect, plus they are cute.
She has never worn it while sleeping, so I don't know if it helps...
I registered pretty late - I think some time in late March, and my shower was in April. But my shower was a surprise, plus I couldn't drive for a good portion of early/mid pregnancy due to fainting...
That's exactly what I felt like before labor...all the same symptoms pretty much...but it was from 2+weeks before I actually went into labor. So I think it means you're getting close, but not...
I'm also a bit of a minimalist, and was extremely stressed and overwhelmed by the amount of baby stuff we needed. Here's a few things I used, didn't use, etc.
From your list: I have never used a...
Don't put him on the twin's birth certificate.
Instead of going to court to take away his rights, tell him you don't want him in and out of his children's lives, so you won't be allowing him to...

I'm thinking about asking for stuff like them paying for baby music class or mommy and me swimming classes or stuff. For a baby, things like zoos and museums aren't really appropriate gifts IMO (more...
Many studies have been done that show children raised in attachment parenting household are far more confident, independent, etc. with less self esteem and attachment issues, anxieties, and so on.

Morphthing gave me a picture of child who looked absolutely nothing like either of us.
A bit off topic... But in the same vein, I saw a little girl playing recently who looked like an older...
I never saw it as a competition. Work towards your own goals - financial stability if you want a house, a strong relationship or meeting new people if that's what you want, physical health and the...

Another tip would be to set "rules" for discussing names before exposing him to your favorites. Things like:
Think about names for at least 24 hours, a week, etc before forming an opinion

I DEFINITELY understand where you're coming from. My BF and I have a drastically different taste in names (for a boy, he wanted Jayden and I wanted Apollo). Our arguments were similar ("that's a...
Also, I found that even in the past 5 years or less, rates of complications due to epidural have decreased quite a bit. It's worth looking into your specific hospital's rates, as well.

I also agree with letting him make choices past safety hazards - my room was a DISASTER as a child...like, record-breaking messy, I never saw another child's room such a mess, and once I got to be...

I have two questions I'm going to cram into one thread. My daughter will be 6 months old at Christmas. Folks are already asking for gift ideas, does she need anything, etc.
Personally I've found the sibling sets I've known to get on much better with a 2 year age gap than a 3-4 year age gap. Initial adjustment might be harder, but I think it evens out. Funny others have...

If this behavior is sudden, you might want to see if he's dealing with other issues. Is he angry at something at home, struggling in school, dealing with bullies or girl problems?
If none of the...
Sarah, all kids are different, and boys typically take longer than girls to potty train. I think anywhere from 15 months to 3 years is normal. I toilet trained early (13 months) and my brother at...

We talk lots about when to introduce solids and what's appropriate, but I'm just curious: What was the first "big people" food your LO's got a taste of? Whether a cereal, baby mush, or "real" food,...

I did have some belly button pain, similar to your description (when touched) which the dr said was normal...but it wasn't that severe at all, so I'd definitely check!
Also, touching on the last post, make sure snacks are healthy. Not just not junk food, but packing some real nutritional value.
If he's struggling to eat steamed veggies at dinner, offer raw with...
I had an epidural with my daughter, not so much because of the pain - it wasn't that horrible - but because I had a very long labor and hasn't slept in over 48 hours as contractions were keeping me...
