If the space behind the back allows the baby to slouch (curved posture?) then the short strap between the legs is most likely not in the correct position. Adjust the strap according to the manual and if you cannot remedy the problem then the safest thing for the baby is to purchase a new seat that fits more snugly. Fitting Checklist

In addition to anongoodnurse's (great!) answer, I would like to add some advice that may help IF it works within your family and culture, and attempt an outside analysis, because I hope that will help a bit in any talk with your daughter. First: I did read through your other questions as well, but I am unsure if she has her own room where she can close her ...

You have a rebellious 14 year old living in your house, and she is testing her limits everywhere. Several things come into my mind as I write this. Why is she living with you? Where is her mother? Is she living with you against her will? How is her relationship with her father? Why were her parents divorced? Where does she get money to buy a new phone when ...

Essentially, calendar age is a much simpler metric than weight and physical activity. It therefore is a simpler guideline for parents to follow, particularly if your child is out of infancy and going for longer stretches between pediatric checkups. If I am curious how much sleep a ten-month-old should get and I want to research the question, I easily know ...

Practicality. Not every baby is going to be the same, and guidelines for one baby are never going to be perfect for another baby with the same attribute, regardless of what you decide to base it off of. Age tends to be used as a baseline because it's the only abstract thing that all babies do equally - age. Say for your example you have two babies ...

Good question, and I see where you would be concerned. First, I don't think the breast milk had anything to do with it, because formula fed babies are usually fatter, and you've got the opposite going here. Instead, it seems to be more about the exercise Sneha gets that Rose doesn't. If they eat the same amount of food, but Sneha burns it all off while ...

My little one does the exact same thing and noticed that it is every time he feels sleepy. I guess he doesn't understand the sleepy feeling that's why he tries to comfort himself that way. I just rock him slowly to sleep while we struggle a bit.

Unless it is sterilized water, a newborn or very young baby should not have water go inside ear canal. Babies immune systems are different and immature. Some grownup recurring sinus infections and infections are attributed to mold in the cavities. I use to take Qtips and go gently with Olive oil around my babies ears, later on as they got older they ended ...

Put a heating pad in the crib beforehand, let it warm up and remove it just before putting in the baby. Along with the advice about waiting for deep sleep and being gentle, this really helps. Again, do not leave the heating pad in the crib with the baby.

I realize this was posted a long time ago, but I figured I'd answer so that when other moms search the topic, this might help. This happens to me with my six week old. This is the conclusion I've drawn... The only real option, I'm realizing, is to gently hold it in her mouth (almost just catching it as it begins to fall from her mouth) until she's in a deep ...
