holy fuckballs on a stick
my wife had a horrific first shift, basically 45min of straight crying, with a 5min timer of when she could pick him up to calm, then he started wailing as soon as he went down, and ended up skipping the nap
my turn for second nap, he cries for 5min, i pick him up, calm him, set him down, he cries for 2min and falls asleep
this is the first time he's fallen asleep during the day without being rocked or fed down
i'm fucking elated
Same with my second. She just slept 1:15 and that was like top 5 naps. 10 monthsMy daughter (5 months) is a horrific napper. 30 minutes max. A couple days last week she did an hour plus and it was amazing.
She does sleep through the night though so I really can’t complain but man if she could extend those naps we’d be thrilled.
Oh she also usually screams her head off prior to falling asleep. That sucks.
Help me OT, i think solids is where my wife and I finally are starting to feel like maybe we can't do this.
our boy is ~11 months old and we're really struggling to give him solids. He doesn't seem interested in food so we try every now and than and i think his lack of interest is probably from us not having him try to eat everyday. But how the hell do you manage this every night? Does every parent really vacuum, wipe, launder, and do bath time every day? Feeding him and us and clean up took ~2 hrs last night and we got lucky that we had leftover pizza we could just reheat for ourselves.
Album below to ask if this level of mess is normal:
I sing my kid a song while I do it.Anybody else struggle with teeth brushing? Hard to get Camille to accept me brushing her teeth more than a few seconds. Her shits gonna rot out. Thankfully there’s always adult teeth
We do teamwork for tooth brushing. He gets to crawl up the step stool on his own, Dad is usually the one to give the "hug" and then I do the brushing. Getting it done amidst the bristle biting is a pain, but he's just trying to get the toothpaste. At the end I hand him the brush so he can practice. He's not good at it and mostly brushes his tongue.Anybody else struggle with teeth brushing? Hard to get Camille to accept me brushing her teeth more than a few seconds. Her shits gonna rot out.

We've thought that but all of our resources have told us he wouldn't have been ready months ago, 5-6 months is the right time
