It is the foam numbers and letters w/ a down blanket on top of it.

The door to the left is her bedroom, but I can see her in her spot wether I am in the kitchen or living room or on the computer.

Adoptive mommy to Micah (Feb 2006), Caleb (Mar 2007; 26 wk preemie, subglottic stenosis, BPD, GERD, dysphagia, FTT, in PT, OT, ST, feeding therapy, 30 mg Prevacid daily, mostly pureed foods, shakes & Pediasure) and Ethan (Feb 2008; 28 wk preemie, BPD, GERD, 15 mg Prevacid daily, Similac Sensitive/Alimentum)
Wow, I'm amazed that she leaves it there! If that were lying on the floor in my living room, it would last for about 2 minutes, then the blanket would be on Caleb's head with Micah lying on top of it and Caleb crying, and the foam letters would be completely taken apart and thrown to the four corners of the earth! LOL

Kathryn, Pager Volunteer and mommy to Emily Mia 02/04/07. 3 years old with GERD. 30mg Prevacid and Pepcid AC. Mylanta needed for flares. Failed prilosec med switch. Tried and failed many med weans but GERD and pain are well controlled. Functional constipation. Reoccurring SBBO. Suspected IBD or autoimmune disease. Resolved issues: MSPI, CSID (acquired), Stage 2 kidney reflux, Chronic diarrhea.
Audrey Meadow 06/20/08. born 34/35 weeks. Still b/f and eats everything! ftt and chronic constipation.
i will have to see if i could try something like that. I have been putting her in her crib but she will go on FOREVER, she can climb out of the pack and play, she will not sit in her highchair, she can undo the buckle and will try to jump out. She is VIOLENT with throwing herself she does not care about hurting herself or me or daddy, being mad totally overcomes and consumes her, it is pretty amazing and scary. i don't think i by myself can pick her up and carry her to a mad spot, she will not let me pick her up, i have bruises on my arms and legs from her kicking me. i have consistently and ignored her tantrums all day for over a week and they never went away they actually got worse when i didn't intervene. the best thing i have done so far was put her in her crib cause even though she yells she can't hurt herself as bad. but i don't think she understands its a cool down thing, even though i get in her level and tell her it is okay to mad and this is just to calm down. i know she understands soo much she is VERY smart but i just don't think she can process frustration and i don't know how to teach her that b/c i myself didn't learn that until i was much older, i was a lot like her when i was little. i will call up EIC (early steps) next week and see if they have a behavioral therapist they can send over. I really appreciate all your help on this topic, even though you've been going through so much, you are the absolute best! thanks!

This is our dd, Alessandra. Dx with GER 10/07. Ran the gamut with meds and now done with them (crossed fingers). Using magnesium, probiotics and prebiotic supplements. With the exception of teething and general sassy attitude, all is well now. They really CAN grow out of it!
I love it! I wish I could get Allie to stay in one spot for more than 3 seconds, because this idea is fabulous!

Melissa - Mommy to Sebastian, born 9/28/07 @ 7 lbs 7 oz and 20.75 in. At docs at 12 months: 27 pounds and 32 in! Good grief! GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS). Neocate only - no solids - until further notice (drinks and loves water, too). Loves his doggie, our rescued Treeing Walker Coonhound, Louise, even though he is allergic to her. Louise will make your doctor a homemade pie if you would like her to. PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
I'm sorry, but this is hilarious. you are going to have a good time teasing her about this one day. My six-year-old niece gets mad right now because she is sharing her parents with her new sister. My sister told her that when she is mad, she should go upstairs to her room, shut the door, and start screaming. As soon as my sister told her this, my niece obliged. We think she thought it was funny! (And it was...)

Actually, I need a mad spot.

I have put myself in a time out before. It works well w/ my ds. Now I just have to tell him I am getting angry and he knows to straighten up! Or else...
Check with your
doctor first!
