Lily is about 4.5 months old now and overall things are going well. She knows many commands like sit stay lay etc. However the nipping, biting and constantly jumping on furniture is a constant problem with her. For the nipping I ignore her once she starts doing it and walk away ifI she is still doing it she goes in a bathroom for time out. Like an isolation away from us so she knows we don't like it.

"I do use biodegradable poop bags, and I pay a pretty penny for them, lol.  I wonder how many parents are using cloth diapers these days instead of disposables, out of concern for the planet? "
