What state are you in? Most states have religious exemptions. Some states if you give even jone vax, you have to do them all. If I lived in a state like that, and I wanted to selectively vax I would lie and say my child had no vaxes at all so we could be exempt. But where I live you can selectively vax AND do the exemption.
Am I the only one who sees the ads for the CDC and Vaccinations all over the page???? What the heck????

And by lifestyle I don't mean anything negative. I simply mean that when the weather or workplace or home is...
My baby was born 4 months before older DS turned 5 yrs old. It was a wonderful age spacing for us. Older DS was big enough to help with stuff and he could understand why I couldn't always do things for him right away. They are now 6.5 and almost 2yrs and they are really good buddies. It was a perfect age gap for us. I very clearly remember, though, the first time that the baby needed to nurse AND my older DS wanted me to get him some food. It was really overwhelming...

Unless I superglue her to my side or constantly struggle with her, she IS going to approach people and talk to them. And I can't see myself making a rule that she...

[although this is a great topic and I'm glad to have been made aware of it - we've kept all our carseats so far for the second baby but when it's time I'll be sure to destroy them. I never would have thought of this.] That is exactly what I...

Just wish it would have more colors, specially since I just found out I'm having a girl! I'm afraid of the WHITE "things" on the straps with the cranberry color. Who would put white on a carseat, especially right beside the face! Because they don't have...

Kids tend to get fractious around that age in a seat. They do get over it. My own all recovered around 18 to 20 months (but screamed blue murder for about 6 months there!) I strongly recommend turning the seat facing the rear again. Children do adjust, particularly when their parents let them know...

There is a radian without wings. -Angela I found a screaming child to be more dangerous (driving distraction) than FFing. We had a goal of 2-3 yrs RFing but things don't always work as planned. I found the true fit online...is it worth the extra $$ for the Signature Series? Also, since we are talking car seats, I am thinking of getting a Recaro Vivo for...
