Has Anyone Had a 2-Year-old That Needs a Frenectomy?

Hi, I'm new to this site, but I've enjoyed reading all the questions & the helpful information that has been provided. It seems to be a great way to communicate with other moms. My daughter is now 2 1/2, and I was told at her first dental appointment that she needs a frenectomy. Neither of us had noticed the wide space between her two front teeth because we thought it was just an ordinary stage of growing. We went for a second opinion, and were told the same thing. Both oral surgeons agreed that it has to be done, but they were different on...

Help with 16 Month Old Hitting Mom When Getting Disciplined

Hello Everyone, This is my first post and people always get such wonderful advice I thought I might try to get some advice too. My 16 month old son has started to hit me when I discipline him. He doesn't hurt me or anything but I don't want this habit to continue. I mean it has gotten to the point if I tell him "no" he will stop what he is doing to come over and hit me for disciplining him. I am at a lot as what to do. When I tell him not to hit me he "feels" bad (lip pout and all) but will do it again anyway. Any tips would be great!

Help! 2 Year Old Escaping from Britax Marathon

My two year old daughter can fully escape from her buckled Britax Marathon. First she was able to pull the metal strap that loosens the shoulder straps. I called Britax and they sent me a trainer tool that completely covers that area. It was really nice to be able to ride in the car without pulling over every two minutes...but that only lasted about 2 weeks. Now she can push the button on the chest clip (not sure what it is called) and press the red button that releases the straps and presto magic she is completely unbuckled! It is...

13 Month Old Not Communicating His Needs and Is Not Affectionate

I have a darling little 13 month old son that is meeting all of his deveopmental milestones and then some but is not pointing, communicating with us, and does not like affection from both of us. We are "attachment" parenting and have always anticipated his wants and needs. I feel like I am always trying to guess if he is hungry or not, or he doesn't cry or tell me when his diaper is wet or soiled. Also I have read many artlicles about babies at this age giving hugs and kisses and being very loving and he is just the opposite. He seems...

Worried My 22 Month Old May Be Color Blind...

My son will celebrate his 2nd birthday on March 30th, and I am a bit worried that he may be color blind. Over the last couple of months I have been working with him on counting, the alphabet and colors. He is doing GREAT at counting and GREAT at his alphabet, but he isn't doing so well with his colors. I have noticed that whenever he picks up the colors green, yellow or blue he always says green. Whenever he picks up the colors red, orange or purple he calls them purple. I don't really know much about being color blind, or what colors...
