psarahm- Yes please! I'd love to take a look at it.

Mamadru- For Cam we cut the tips off of them (soothie brand) and told Cam that they were "broken". I had him see that they were "broken" and had HIM throw them away. When he would ask for a paci I would remind him that he threw them away. He never threw a fit or cried for one after that. We have been paci free for about 8-9 months now. Good luck!

HELP!!!! My toddler is driving me nuts! Since we moved into our new place, Cam has had issues with taking his bath, going down for his naps and for bedtime. He cries bloody murder. He has never has issues with any of those until now. I know that he is adjusting to being in a new place and we have been overly accommodating when it comes to all the listed. Right now he has a ton of stuffed animals and about 6 books in his crib with him and still he's crying. I don't allow toys in bed so thats not an option. I hope that this passes soon because it's so heartbreaking hearing him cry.

Camsmommy- We also have all those issues right now, pedi says it's completely normal because they are so busy and want to asert their independence and control. Try making a game of the bath, naps and bed time are harder though... stick to your guns mama (routine) but let him have some (or at least think he does) control over daily choices... for example, do you wanna wear this shirt or that one, do you want the veggies in the red bowl or the yellow one. If your reading to him at bedtime have it be the same book every night. This too shall pass, it's all part of the terrible twos.

I sent a friend request. I'm Nancy.

We have a pretty strict night time routine for him and have kept it consistent since he was born. I too think he's testing his boundaries. Just now I put him down for his nap and he went down with no issues. So I hope that he's realizing that he's not going to get what he wants, when he wants if he cries. Oh the joys of having a toddler. :P

they can test us... and they know they are adorable so it gets hard. I try using lots of praise and being sern with the rules. When he does good and goes down easy I make a big deal of it. When he tries to bend the rules I explain that it's not acceptable and into his room he goes for 2 minutes, I ignore the tantrums (making sure he is safe) because he sees it as me giving in and thinks its funny. I also try to keep things to a minimum, if something isnt going to hurt him and he can't break it I will let him explore rather than get into the power struggles.

I think I need a bit of input... Things were going well with the ex seeing charlie till he decided to be a jerk and threaten to take custody. Legally WI does not recognize him as the dad, now he says that hes paid off the 10k in child support he owes on his other two kids (in just two days) and his lawyer will contact me. He don't work, he has no licence because of 3 duis and is an alcoholic. He is living in someone elses basement. What are the chances they will grant him placement? He is going to try to use DS1 against me with everything that has been going on that led up to him being in foster care because of his criminal behaviors.

I would say to go get something written up and approved by the courts. If he has so many things already written against him, now would be the time to do it. I believe in most states the mother would be granted primary/permanent custody. My mom works with this kind of stuff so I will ask her tonight on what her opinion on the matter is. He seems like a real piece of work. I'm so sorry that you are having to deal with this right now.

I went and filed paternity with child support. I think here they won't give him placement unless he can prove me unfit. Most of what I have seen is that the order will say that visitation is at my discresion, so hopefully ours is the same way.
