  2. Re: 3yo asking for food to fall asleep, not weaned yet

    Nola, thanks so much for responding. Yes, I'm concerned about cavities too. Just wondering, what do you think about offering something savory like cheese? Would you, as a parent, be okay with that in...
  3. Re: 3yo asking for food to fall asleep, not weaned yet

    Krystine, that was helpful. I was concerned about an eating disorder because of emotional eating. He sometimes suffers a disappointment (like not being able to get something he wants) and will ask...

    Older toddler and drinking water

    I've always operated under the philosophy that babies and older babies know when they are hungry, thirsty, and when/what to eat (through baby-led weaning). So the same would be true of older...

    Re: MMMM, MMMM growling sounds

    Thank you mammas. I think he is MMMing for a wide range of reasons. I studied him over the weekend and I think it is impatience for the letdown, sometimes just having fun, and in some cases I still...

    Re: MMMM, MMMM growling sounds
