Your two-year old was all gung ho about potty training a not even a week ago. Now, all attempts to put big boy undies on, you’d think a bomb was being strapped to his waist.
Your eight month old – who normally sleeps soundly for 11 hours straight – has decided that every night this week he’d like to enjoy “4th meal” at around 4am. Growth spurt?
Regression. Loving it.
