My only suggestion is do NOT tell everyone the same thing. That is how I ended up with 10 baby dolls one Christmas 😬. Experiences are always a good idea - zoo or aquarium membership/Gymboree type class - I’ve asked for money toward one of those.

Definitely subscriptions or memberships to children’s museum! You’ll use that membership way more than whatever cute toy they give you.

I’ve been eyeing subscriptions like Lovevery and Monti Kids. That way we don’t have too many toys at once

We have the fisher price food truck. It’s pretty cute and my kids have loved it for years.

I would just suggest clothing, then you can fill your home with the toys and items you love. Some other ideas - some basic musical instruments that they can use while sitting (tambourine, egg shakers, baby xylophone, etc.). Weaning equipment (like a Beaba or similar, a small table and chairs). An object permanence box or tracking toy (like a ball run). And for people that want to give very expensive or elaborate gifts, a pikler triangle.

Moms, anyone here have hypothyroidism or Hashimoto's thyroiditis? Just got out of an appt with an endocrinologist which left me feeling like I've damaged my kid before she even came out of the womb. My gyn was treating my hypothyroidism during my pregnancy and my levels were within tolerance, just not optimal. The endo basically said it would impact their development and said my level was lower than she would have allowed. Anyone have the same circumstances and kid turns out fine?

Ever since my wife delivered our baby and we got the clear to resume sexual activities, her sex drive is over the roof. I cant keep up anymore but i also dont want to tell her because i complained in the past (way before she conceived) that i wanted us to have sex more often. Now that she wants it almost everyday, i cant keep up. I was so happy tonight because i thought i was going to have the night off then she just went for it. Is it normal to have such a high sex drive after delivery?
