Yes! I've washed quite a few pairs! Just rub them and knead them until they get soft again - it always worked for ours. They do wear out a lot faster if you wash them, though. But they also are really stinky when they get peed on, which was always why I had to wash them.
A 1 month old is definitely nearsighted, all of them. And I seem to remember reading in "What's Going In There?" that they don't focus directly? Because their peripheral vision is better at that age? I can't quite remember, it's been awhile since I read it, but maybe if someone has it they can look it up for you.
I wonder if your brother has kids? If not, I would imagine he just hasn't ever really thought about it that much? If so, maybe he wants to rationalize and normalize the methods he used in his family?

I just have to vehemently disagree with this. Sure, we're not perfect, but we're making such huge strides! We have a black president!...

We have high deductible insurance, so that visit with the...
I also didn't mean to be critical of anyone who does bring critters home. I think there are great things to be learned from it, and lives to be saved. Dh saved a baby bird's life this spring by putting in a bird cage in our garage. I opened the door to let it get some sunshine, and its parents found it. When I let it out, they watched it all day and fed it, and eventually it flew up into the tree.

I don't want to catch or buy bugs for it so it will promptly be returned to the wild, lol. Yeah, it could get out, and we were catching it bugs, but I don't know if they were the kind of bugs it liked. I never saw it eat anything. It might have just been ill or had some other defect, but it was sooo...
No. We got a tadpole last year and put it in our tank, and it grew into the cutest little frog...and then promptly died. I don't know if it would have mattered it if it was in our tank, but this year we've just been looking at them at the pond, instead of bringing them home.
