My son was addicted to his paci - called it his pappy. He had it in the van and at night and nap at home. Not at daycare or any other time. We could see it affected his speech and his teeth. He has a very narrow palate now and his two front teeth stick out. He fell in August at daycare and as it turns out, loosened one of his front teeth. When we took him to the dentist, he could tell right away that he had a paci and showed us the damage it had already done. We...

Baby boy #5 will be here sometime in December and we have no carseat for him. With my other 4, I always used the infant bucket-type. Times and safety concerns have changed so I'd like to get some more advice: what has worked best for you? Is there a safety concern regarding the bucket seats?
Lovely, lovely slideshow. And yes...I caught that tear too and was so touched. I remember my husband crying when both of our sons were earthside. The photos with your older daughter are sweet and beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
I agree but in your cousin's defense...I was once that person. Before I had kids and something like that happened, I thought I was saving the parent and child embarrassment or the 'hassle' of getting in trouble.

I do not fully understand this yet myself, but I will learn along my child's side and together in time we will all figure things...
