You’re a GREAT MOM!!

Wow are you ever amazing, Mama- you are worried about screen time and so many other moms aren’t! Honestly, my last 2 kids LOVED those videos and they were a lifesaver for me! My kids would stay glued to the tv while i made school lunches for the older 2 kids, showered and even made dinner. I’m sure Baby Einstein was on for more than 12 minutes a day at one point! You’re doing great and I don’t think a little extra screen time is going to do any real harm to your babe!

What Worked For Me

I remember this well! Things I would do: Waking the babe to do a feeding around 11-11:30pm, don’t turn on lights when the baby wakes at night (except a nightlight for diaper changes) and minimal eye contact and talking at night. Also, i tried to put baby down for naps when relaxed but not totally asleep so i could do the same at night! I think it’s important to remember that it’s really normal for babies to wake at night for many months (even though it sucks!) Good luck, Mama!!

What a tough situation!

First of all, I can totally relate to crying as a first response to hurt or anger! It sounds like this woman is really insecure. It’s not normal to use children against each other or as a way to criticize another mom’s choices, and it sounds like this lady has done both. That being said, confrontation is hard for a lot of people (🙋🏼‍♀️). I’m not sure if you need to have a conversation with her at first- maybe just take as much distance as possible for now. Write a letter to her about all the ways you feel, all the things she’s done to piss you off, but don’t send it. Just have it on your computer so that if she doesn’t take the hint by the distance, you could use it as a guide for the “break up”. (In person, on the phone, by email- no judgements!) As far as telling the other moms what she’s said about them- I would probably decide on a per case basis: will it change anything if they knew? (Other than them not liking her anymore) Finally, I hope you understand that this woman’s words and negativity aren’t about you at all- she’s probably not going to change, no matter what you say to her anyhow. I hope you can find some other cool moms to hang out with because you sound like a good friend!

Weve travelled with our kids quite a bit. I recommend an all-inclusive in Mexico or Cuba! Cuba has the best beaches and Mexico has the best food!!

This is so good and you can make it with pasta, zucchini noodles, over steamed broccoli or even use it as a cracker dip. https://www.adventuresofanurse.com/2016/10/04/instant-pot-crack-chicken/
