Safety Gate: Safety 1St Perfect Fit or the First Years Everwhere Gate

I'm buying a gate to go into my daughter's bedroom door, as we're moving her into a bed in the next couple weeks and I want to "gate" her door. I want it to be pressure mounted. I'm trying to decide between the Safety 1st Perfect Fit or The First Years Everywhere Gate (found both on Target website). Both are plastic with a translucent panel so she can't climb the gate. My key question is how easy is the pressure mounted function? Is it fairly easy to put up and take down the gate each time I enter and exit her room? Does anyone...

20 Month Old Son Still Sleeping in Our Bed...

I know I may get some real honest opinions on here but maybe thats what I need. Our son has basically slept with us since the day he came home from the hospital-with the exception of hime being in the bassinet or pack and play when he was really tiny. He is now 20 months old and still sleeps in our bed. My MIL keeps telling me to not let him, that he needs his own bed (which he has), etc... Problem is I have no issues with him being in the bed. I thik it's more me than him! I hear all different things from both sides- they will be co...

How Do I Get My 4 Month Old to Feed from the Bottle?

My 4 month old daughter is too used to the breast and will not feed from the bottle. When we try and give it to her, she fusses, screams and cries until we give her the breast. We've even tried Avent, Dr. Brown, Nuk, etc nipples to see which one is closest to the real thing. We've even tried feeding her with the bottle in the morning when she is the most hungry but that doesn't work either. Will she get better if I start feeding her rice cereal? This makes it really hard to leave her with a babysitter. Any suggestions would be greatly...

Is First Years or Evenflo Breast Pumps Any Good?

When my son and daughter were born premature, the WIC offices where I lived provided a motorized Medella pump supplied from a medical supply store. Obviously this was very good. I know that Medellas are sold in Target but I also seen other brands. Is there an "off" brand ie, Evenflo, First Years, etc. that is comparable but without the price??

My 13 Month Old Is Picky, picky...picky!

My 13 month old little guy is ALL boy, except for his eating habits. Ever since he's realized he can eat what mommy is eating (to a point), that is all he wants. But then when I sit him down in his high chair, he sometimes puts the food in his mouth, then spits it out. He will drink his bottles like they are going out of style as many times as he can during the day and will throw tiny fits unless he doesn't have his bottle (whole milk of course), or get whiney until we give them to him. He will eat some foods (cheerios, pastas of every...

Need to Wean 12 Month Old of Late Night Bottle

Hi Moms! So, I am trying to wean my just turned 12 month old daughter from the bottle. It has been surprisingly easy except for the 2-3 a.m. bottle. At this point she only drinks milk from a cup throughout the day with her meals (about 8 oz/day) and gets 4 oz of milk in a bottle at bedtime. I don't really have an issue with her keeping the bedtime bottle. She just started agreeing to hold it herself while being cuddled and I would like her to switch it to a cup soon, but other than that she can drink a cup of milk during story time till she...
