Safe cosleeping guidelines have you keep the newborn and the 2.5 yo apart. I personally would never have my child sleep next to my cosleeping infant. It's just not worth the risk.

Just because they can't express their suffering doesn't mean they aren't experiencing the exact same unpleasantness we do. Personally, I'm not encouraged to allow my child to suffer by tales of near dehydration or semi comatose states. I'd rather treat the high fever ( tepid sponging, cool clothing, light bedclothes, medication)...
Vomiting can be a symptom of stroke. With this serious of a headache, you might want to take him in. It's probably just a migraine, but you know what they say about the worst headache of your life, get it evaluated by a doc, asap.

We are lucky that it is rare here in the US, but in other parts of the world it is a much more common occurence. I am stunned to see pregnant mothers who refuse hep B testing, or hep b positive mothers who refuse to vaccinate their infants. I think those actions are very...
Quote: I am a huge fan of the shoulder strap. Why more umbrella strollers do not have that, I do not know. yep, I think it's worth it just for that strap. The volo does steer much easier than any other stroller I have had, you can literally push it with one hand when you need to.
I will never forget the day my son took my car keys and put them in the ignition of my car, yeah, we babyproofed before that, but we REALLY babyproofed after that. He was under 2!
