... You're more likely to get burned out before she does! Where I admire your dedication, keep in mind that your daughter is only 2 months old.... she doesn't need a lot right now. Hold her, rock her, sing to her, be there for her when she cries.... ... (2 replies)

... hours of play time. I usually put on a winnie the pooh sing a long tape for her to listen to while she falls asleep in her swing. It doesn't look like she is actually watching the T.V. for more than a few minutes before she turns her head to the side. ... (2 replies)
... I agree with the previous poster that at this age you don't really have to do that much with her. At this age it is very common for babies to become overstimulated if you do too much! I also agree that the TV isn't bad as long as you aren't using it as a "babysitter". ... (2 replies)

... he 1st and I am concerned about her being behind. She can sit by herself and rolls all over the place. She is getting up her hands and knees but goes nowhere. So to me for this stuff she is on track. But she still takes a bottle every 2 hrs, she gets 4 ozs. ... (2 replies)

... Sorry for this long response, but I'm really interested in this topic. I love to cook and it's important to me that our DD learns to like new foods and keep an open mind to healthy eating. We never force her to eat anything. ... (3 replies)
... Im right there with you worrying if everything is normal, or if it means somethings wrong because he is or isnt doing certain things. And Im a second time mum. It never gets easier, you worry about them from the minute theyre concieved and for the rest of their lives lol. ... (6 replies)
