comment What are some do's and dont's for an effective bedtime ritual?
@Rhea Nope, I consider quiet reading time calm enough to be done in the bedroom. I have a bunch of pillows and stuffed animals in one corner of the room. They each grab their favorite blanket and curl up on each side of me. I let them each pick out one book and I pick out one. When I am done reading they crawl into bed. I want to get a lamp that is dimmer than the ceiling one so that it is darker when we are reading. I leave the books in their room so that they can "read" whenever they want to.

comment What is the best strategy for adjusting an toddler's sleep cycle during Daylight Savings?
Update: This year everyone in the house had colds. We kept to our regular schedule, and it worked fine. They needed the extra sleep to get better anyway.

comment How do we get our toddler to gain weight?
We gave the boys 32 ounces of milk until they were a 1.5 years old and started eating more regular food, with the last 6 months being a transition from pumped breast milk to cows milk. By 2 they were down to 24 ounces a day and eating regular meals. The doctor did approve the transition diet and ran regular iron tests on them. I was anemic during the pregnancy so he was concerned about it. Thank you for your concern and it is good for people to know to be careful about the amount of milk their little ones get :)
