Mom-to-Mom (or Dad): Questions that Need Answers
Here are some things I’m wondering. Yes, I could look them up in books, and I’m doing that, but I’m interested in hearing about real-world parenting.
1) At what age should I put Baguette into stiff-soled shoes? Last month she made the transition from Robeez Soft Soles to Stride Rite‘s “Early Walkers” shoes. Now her daycare says that she’s dragging her feet, and she should be wearing heavier shoes so that she builds up her leg muscles. (Meanwhile, I drag my feet, and I can finish a triathlon. So is this really a big issue, or something to wait out?)
2) Everyone seems to be biting everyone else at day care. What have you done at home to discourage (and end) biting?
3) How much milk should a 16-month-old drink? She’s average for height and weight, and seems to be hitting her developmental milestones as she should, and she’s drinking whole milk. So we’re fine there. But I’m not sure how much milk she should get each day, as opposed to water (we’re still holding off on juice).
I’d love to hear what’s worked for you. Please share!
