comment Automatic dripping Milk feeder
I also envisioned the hamster cage bottle which is a licking action. @Ali - I didn't mean no parents in sight whatsoever. I should have said "hands free" like your podee bottle answer.

I guess "automatic feeder" meant no parents?

comment Automatic dripping Milk feeder
Isn't the baby still sucking on the SNS? Sorry, I am not familiar with it and the instructions didn't help me. I guess it just felt like a contradiction to me: an automatic drip like an IV and a "baby sucking as and when required" in your question?

comment What are some good natural teethers?
You don't freeze those teethers. You put them in the fridge. I do not know why but the label says that. Maybe because frozen teethers are way too cold for the baby to hold? Even though my baby's teethers had a handle, she always held on to the cold teether part and not the handle.

comment What to do when an eight-year old says “sorry” in a not sorry voice
+1. Question for you - do you offer possibilities of why they are sorry or you have them come up with it themselves? I do the same method but sometimes, I get a blank stare or "I don't know". My daughter is only 32 months though. What do you do then?

comment Automatic dripping Milk feeder
Sounds like an automatic feed would require no sucking from the baby. Nipple shields help the baby get the breast deeper in their mouth to pump the milk. There is no device to train suckling that I know of. Babies naturally know how to suck. It's latching on that is the problem.

comment Grandparent put a diaper on my toilet trained child
Thank you yes I talked to my mom about it. She didn't know I was on a no-diaper regime then and after I talked to her, it didn't happen again.

comment What's a good way to encourage a toddler to blow their nose?
But when they choose the other over your affection, how will that make you feel? I guess I am in the position where affection is given without strings attached. I agree with "realistic consequences" but not with encouraging conditional love.

comment Toddler started to not fall asleep anymore
Same thing happening to me with our 32 month old. She wants to play forever. Her dad also had trouble sleeping as a child which makes me think we are going to be in this for a longer phase than most...

comment Loud Screaming to attract attention
Hmm "forced" the mom out? I think you both need to be on the same page or find a compromise for parenting.
