They say 35lbs but the us has a law for them to be tested at much more. Btw I wear my 27lb DS on my back and sometimes wear both him an 15lb DD.

Quoting .free.:" I don't understand why public school is free but you have to pay for preschool? Also...we've got to get Leah f**king potty trained first :? I feel like such a parent failure."


You're totally not omg.
It will happen! What kind of potty chair do you have for her? The little one or the one that goes on top of the big potty?

She's got an elmo kids potty and it has a pop out thing but she doesn't like to sit on the pop out on the toilet, she likes to just sit on the big toilet itself.
She KNOWS how to use the potty and when to, she just chooses not to :?
And if I put underwear on her she'll pee or shit right in them. She does okay if she's naked but we're moving in with DHs family so that's not gonna fly.
The whole "pretty undies" thing doesn't work either. She dgaf, lol. She'll just go in them :?

Quoting .free.:" I hope I can find some sort of low income preschool program when we move because I really want to get her into something but we definitely can't afford to pay for much :oops:"


I am not sure about everywhere, but we have programs here for low income families to go to preschool. Good luck!

Have you tried bribing her? lol



It sounds horrible but it totally worked. We found lollipops that are just Vitamin C pops, not sugary, put them in a jar and said that it was the potty jar. If she went in the potty she got one.



Once she started peeing in the potty we made a HUGE deal about it. We screamed, ran around the house jumping, calling her grandparents, etc. After a while she didn't care about the lollipops she just loved everyones reaction.

I'm still so completely undecided on what wrap or carrier to get. I know I really want something but I just don't know what to get!! I walked around with DD on my back, like me reaching my arms back and holding her, for like 30 minutes yesterday and she LOVED it, but my arms haaaated it haha I wish there was a store I could try them ALL out in..AND a person to show me how to properly wear them lol.

I learned how to do different woven carries on Youtube!



If you want the support of a woven wrap but something that's an easy up and down you could go for a wrap conversion mei tai, which is what my new rainbow carrier in the pics is :)
