Welcome to our group! We're a friendly group of girls that are eager to support and encourage you through your journey, and we'd love to get to know you!

If you'd like your first name to appear whenever you make posts or replies within the group, let us know here.

Be sure to check out the first 2 replies to this post as well. There is some more handy information, such as decoding all those crazy abbreviations (reply #1), and a list of videos that will guide you from the last stages of pregnancy through the first few weeks at home with baby (reply #2).

If teething is driving you crazy, you might find this post helpful! Our group recently had Dr. Gelman, a highly sought-after pediatric dentist in New York, come in and answer some of our burning questions. See if your questions are answered!

Also, be sure to check out this post, where we got to ask Dr. Tanya - a pediatrician, working mom, best-selling author, and TV parenting expert - some questions regarding baby's milestones. See what she had to say!

And finally, meet the girls who are running the group to keep it a safe & happy environment for all:

Hi, I'm Chrissy. I'm a 27 year old stay at home mom to my sweet 13 month old boy named Keith. We are a military family and relocated to Texas in 2012. Prior to that we were stationed in CA and I grew up and call Washington State my home. In July, we will celebrate our 9 year wedding anniversary! I spend my small amount of free time scrapbooking, reading, and am starting to sew fleece diaper covers.

So feel free to jump in whenever you're ready!

 Welcome to the group!

As far as getting him to sleep in his own bed, there are plenty of different ways. First, think of why you want to get him to sleep there. Where is he sleeping right now? At one month, the most important thing is that he sleeps, not where he does it. So if he's getting enough sleep (around 20-22 hours a day that young) and he's safe, there's really no need to move him unless you just plain want to! :)

With my daughter, we bed-shared for the first 1-2 months. After that, we transitioned her to her swing. We kept the swing in our room and started out leaving it on all night. As time went on, we started turning it off sooner and sooner until it wasn't on at all. That took about a month. And once we did that, we moved the swing to the living room (shared a wall with our bedroom) and left the bedroom door open. We did that for about another month or so. Then we finally made the transition to crib. It was rough at first, she woke up more often the first few nights, but I kept coming to her, calming her down/feeding her/changing her, whatever was needed. And after a few nights (a week or so, really) she was fine in her crib.

If you'd like more advice from more people, feel free to make a post in the group. Just go to the group's home page (which you can get to by clicking the blue "house" under the group name at the top of the page) and click the Add A Post button. More people will see your question that way and you'll be able to get more answers than just mine.

Good luck!
