    Re: nightweaning and co-sleeping

    It's totally possible! For us, it worked that she was old enough (around 2 I think; it's funny how one forgets these things..) to understand something about the concept of time. I explained to her,...

  17. Re: Does your baby have a specific item that he/she likes to play with while nursing?

    My elbows! I made many attempts to get my daughter to take to a comfort object or toy instead, but it didn't work. She has a thing for elbows.
