    [–] Apartment recommendations? monteverdea1 3 points ago in lakeland

    I’ve heard that the Park at Verona is pretty good. Bulindings are a bit old but maintenance is pretty on point.

    [–] My 3 month old boy recovering from his open heart surgery! He is way stronger than I am! monteverdea1 1 points ago in pics

    What a strong little one! My daughter also had open heart surgery at 6months old to correct a VSD. She has become my heart hero. And I get my strength from her. She is now going to be two in September and has been such an amazing spirit in our home. We only have to get her checked with the cardiologist once a year to ensure that the hole is closed. Sending you and your heart warrior so much love! From one heart family to another!

    [–] Needing advice or words of encouragement. My daughter’s day care wants me to stop breastfeeding her. monteverdea1 3 points ago in breastfeeding

    Thank you so much! We are meeting with the daycare director to discuss the lack of communication and our daughters adjustment. I will be sure to bring this up

    [–] Needing advice or words of encouragement. My daughter’s day care wants me to stop breastfeeding her. monteverdea1 1 points ago in breastfeeding

    It was the supervisor who expressed her concerns. And the ratio is 1 to 6. I’m starting to get an uncomfortable feeling with this place and my husband and I have a meeting with the director on Thursday to further discuss how we can help my daughter adjust. I guess I’m feeling uncomfortable (upset? Annoyed?) that we are having this meeting too soon and she hasn’t even been there three weeks. I started calling other daycares and most have a waitlist

    [–] Daycare is your “village” monteverdea1 6 points ago in beyondthebump

    I was so meant to read this post! I’m currently struggling with our daycare. I literally just posted on another subreddit about our current daycare telling me to stop breastfeeding my daughter because she’s struggling to adjust. My daughter has only been in the daycare for 10 days and has never been in daycare before. Thank you so much for this post! I’ve been praying for some guiyand your words were so encouraging!

    [–] LPT: If you are sending money to someone you don’t know, it’s likely to be a scam. If they are asking you to use a wire transfer, MoneyGram, Venmo, Western Union, Zelle or gift cards to send that money, it’s almost certainly a scam. monteverdea1 1 points ago in LifeProTips

    I almost fell for that exact scam! We were selling our furniture and someone was sending us a check for the furniture and for us to pay the movers. We figured it was a scam because I decided to google scams regarding this exact experience. Well the check arrived and it looks like a real check. We asked the scammer specific questions about their company, etc and after a while they just stopped replying because we continued to ask lots of questions. We kept the check though to maybe give it to the FBI.

    [–] To the mamas who are struggling this morning monteverdea1 4 points ago in beyondthebump

    Ughhh I so needed to hear this. Thank you mama!

    [–] Letting the baby cry? monteverdea1 3 points ago in beyondthebump

    Your gut instincts are correct! This time around babies cry because they need something. With time and as your LO grows older you will be able to differentiate between a cry when they need something and a cry when they are just being fussy. Stick with your mom gut!

    [–] What do you guys do for fun? monteverdea1 31 points ago in tampa

    [–] My daughter is having surgery this morning... monteverdea1 2 points ago in beyondthebump

    You are an amazing mom!! Remember that! My daughter underwent open heart surgery at just 7months old last year. She is coming up to her one year surgery anniversary and she is thriving and doing amazing! Please pm if you want to talk more! The worst part is waiting to hear from the doctors but the nurses are so amazing and can give you updates by the hour. Try to keep yourself busy by watching a movie on Netflix or getting something to eat. It helped me as I waited for my daughter to come out of surgery

    [–] What's the saddest song you've ever heard? monteverdea1 50 points ago in AskReddit

    I actually just went there yesterday and it was so depressing seeing signs that say “everything must go” and “store closing”. I’m sad because my kids won’t get to experience what it’s like to go into a big store full of toys.

    [–] I think someone’s getting curls! My little girl is about 18 months and I too have very curly hair! Happy to see my little one has my curls! monteverdea1 16 points ago in curlyhair

    I currently use babyfanics on her hair and let it air dry by combing her hair before bed. Once a week, I add a little bit of coconut oil to keep some of the moisture as it sometimes has dry areas (just like my hair). As the hair is drying, I twirl the hair with my fingers to help the curl become more defined.
