Potty Training NOT Going Well with 3 Year Old

Hi All! We are trying to potty train our 3 year old right now. This is NOT the first attempt we have made at this. I tried starting when he was 2 and he just didn't seem ready. I tried again at 2-1/2 and seemed to be making a little headway and then he really began to fight it. He turned 3 in February and I know he is ready this time, but he is fighting it tooth and nail. Every now and then he will get excited and want to sit on the potty, but rarely does anything happen. When I try to get him to sit on the potty at regular intervals...

Bowel Movements...sorry, Not Trying to Be Yucky!

Hello fellow Mamasource moms! Sorry, not trying to be gross...but I need some input on this. My son only has bowel movements about 2 times a week, on a good week! Since he has been potty trained, he doesn't like to go "big potty" very much. He has to get to a point where he can't hold it before he goes. I have given him raisins, apple-prune juice, grapes on a consistent basis with no effect! Does anyone know of anything I can give him that will make him more regular? I know his tummy hurts from not being regular! Any input would...

Unruly 3 Year Old

I wrote a couple of weeks ago and i really need some advise. My 3 year old girl is completely out of control. She does not listen to anyone, she is horribly bratty, and has no regard for anyone else. When we are with other children, she will rip toys away from them, push them, and is ALWAYS the boss. But, she is the first to cry when someone else does something to her that she doesn't like. She has started talking baby talk all the time. It's not an attention thing, because I give her attention 24/7 and try very hard to be patient. ...

Diaper Bag Recommendations Needed

I am currently using a Baby Sac diaper bag and LOVE it! I bought it just before my daughter was born and it's been great for the last 5 months. However, as my daughter gets older, I'm starting to carry more items during our outings and realize I need a bigger bag. I look at diaper bags everywhere I go and can't seem to find what I like. If you can recommend a bag and a location where I can get one, I would really appreciate it. Here are some of the features I'm looking for: Must have an adjustable shoulder strap It needs to have a...

Diaper Pail Recommendations?

We currently use the Safety First Odorless Diaper Pail. That pail was okay at first for keeping in the smell, but lately, it hasn't been doing it's job. We have changed it's disk (that makes it fresh) and it doesn't seem to help. My son has been on solid foods for almost a year now so I don't think it's stronger smelling movements (or could it be?). Has anyone had luck with any of the other diaper pails out there? My son's room is right off the kitchen so we really need as close to odorless pail as we can get. We've also tried air...

What Should I Do for Diaper Rash?

I think my 2 month old son has some diaper rash on the inside of his thighs and his lower stomach above his diaper. I have never seen or felt diaper rash so I'm not sure if that is what it is. The skin is bumpy and feels leathery. I have applied some A+D Ointment on it but I'm not seeing a difference. Do any other moms have any suggestions of anything else I should be applying? Does Desitin work better? Thanks, D.

3 Year Old Behavior...

Hello there...I am looking for new tricks to have up my sleeve when dealing with my 3 year old daughter. As of late she has taken to shrieeking when put on a time out. I also have not been able to get her to say "I'm sorry for _____" once she's out of her time out. She flat out refuses and walks away or says she "can't". She also has taken to talking or raising her voice over mine to repeat herself when told "no" in getting something. This she picked up from me due to my using it when she started repeating herself so say "noooooo" over her....

4 Year Old Wants to Pee All the Time

Hi Moms, My 4 year old daughter started to behave weird in the last week. She tries to go pee very often. Sometimes she may go as often as 4 times in an hour, some other time she would forget about it and behave normal for about half a day, but then she would go back to the potty thing. She says that it does not hurt when she pees, she just wants to pee. I took her to a doctor, and the doctor did not find any infections. She said that "sometimes kids just do that". But I am still worried. Did any of you have similar experiences with your...
