I would cook it if it didn't smell funky. I wouldn't freeze it raw though. I'd cook it thoroughly and then use it for meals asap.
Quote: Originally Posted by lifeguard We just use an old wool blanket folded in half. So far it's worked well for us. That would be great, if we had a wool blanket. Unfortunately a new wool blanket is also way above our budget (well over $100). I'll try to find a used one. Edited to add: I checked on ebay. Used 100% wool blankets go for above what we can afford right now, as much or more than the non-vinyl mattress pads. Anyone have any...
I've had a terrible time finding non-vinyl waterproof crib mattress pads. The only ones I've found are around $35-50 which is WAY more than we can afford for one mattress pad right now. Do you think it would be safe for me to use a PEVA shower curtain liner as a waterproof layer (topped with a flannel sheet to cushion it and then a regular cotton sheet on top of that)? If not, do you have any CHEAP (like, $20 or less) alternatives? Thanks mamas!

This. My grandmother was raised in the "you don't say no to adults, EVER" era and has always told any child in her care "you don't say no to me". When I was old enough to realize the danger of this, I told her that she was taking away their most...

It's just too stretchy to get a good wrap on my biiiig 7mo. No matter how snug I tie him (hip carry mostly, due to my big preggo tummy) he always sags down past my hip. I do intend to get a woven wrap eventually, but I'm thinking "poppable" right now. DS is in a clingy stage...

I mostly get hat/mits/shoes comments from my mom, who thinks that every time you step foot outside the baby is going to suffer some horrible fate if unhatted/unshod/etc. I don't mind so much with her cuz I love her but I tell her "I don't do it your way" and she shuts up. I actually had a...

I posted a few responses about our experience above, but I imagine they got lost in all the other responses. I never expected such overwhelming response to my question. Thanks everyone!

I know there's a big variation there but I'm looking for something to back carry both a newborn and older baby through the toddler years. I love wraps but I do find them harder to use and am wondering if I should go with something easier. What do all you experts recommend? Also, which brands are your favorites?
