My 2 yo son was recently diagnosed with autism (moderate, non-verbal). Any moms out there located in the Bay Area? I’ve been having such a hard time trying to find him the right therapies...

Appreciate any ABA or OT facility recommendations.

Hugs. I’m in the Bay Area but not familiar with this topic. Have you considered joining local parents groups and/or Facebook groups? Those seem to be the best for local reccs. What part of the bay are you in?

Not in the bay area but have you tried contacting Bay Area Regional Centers. There is one at SF. 415 546 9222. They service kids with developmental delays up to 3 yrs old then if needed they will transfer to family service. Call them and tell them about your son's condition and see how they can help. Good luck!

He forces my mom to visit even though theyve been incredibly rude to her

I feel a bit burnt out, but is that silly after just 7 months? Burnt out as in exhausted, stressed after work about work the next day etc. I work at a recruitment agency, it is very fast paced desk for temporary roles so immediacy is key.

Serious question- how on earth do first time parents pick out things for a registry? Like if you haven’t managed your own child, how do you know if you like this carrier or that? This lounger or that? Do people just trust their closest friend/advisor and mimic their decisions? I’ve spent so much time reading the diff bw strollers (which clearly is the hardest decision) - bloggers, Buying Guides, etc- and my head is going to explode 🤯. Gift cards it is 😆

Hi can any mamas out there speak / give advice to breastfeeding beyond a year old? My mom keeps making comments as my son nears his 1st bday, that now is the time to be weaning him, switching to cows milk. I have no issues breastfeeding him and he seems to enjoy it. The only lingering worry I have is that I have no idea what quantity he takes from me and whether I am meeting his nutritional needs with my milk. He obviously also has solids 3x a day and BFs on demand before and after daycare.
