Again, no one is riled over the posts that say "I would not spend that much." The issue is the posts that say "I can't believe someone would spend that much."

wow. You really know how to bring it on home dontcha?
It's funny because you always seem to make the point for the other side. Noone says money can buy heart or brains. No matter how many outrageously expensive objects you buy, you (general you) can still be pretty empty inside.

Wow, I didn't know that. I thought anyone can learn to get used to bf-ing in public (like me).

I have one of those. Safety is a huge priority for us, and my research and experimentation indicated that my child would be safest in that seat. (Especially 'cause I can install it tightly by myself.)
It does not hurt my feelings if someone else does not understand my choice to buy a $260 car seat. It was definitely worth it for us.

Aw, I was waiting for you to pop up here. I guess I do know how to drive the point home. It's just that when the same people respond time and time again to the FFS threads and then are so quick to trash, it leaves some wondering.

Still not seeing how that statement is offensive.
We all come from different backgrounds here and have different priorities. Some people think a gorgeous embroidered diaper is worth their $150. Other people do not have the $150, but if they did, would never spend it on that. Other people have it, but spend it on something else. We all seem to agree that it's a pretty diaper and cloth is good and Christy is great. Where is the problem?

"As far as trying to find an analogy for this thread, just about any forum where people talk about a product would work. Try going to the babywearing forum and saying "I can not believe someone would pay $100 for a sling" and see what kind of reactions you get. Or try going to whatever the forum is where people talk about carseats (some people are really addicted to those things) and saying "I can not believe someone would pay $500 for a car seat" (or however much those expensive ones cost... is Britax the expensive brand?) and see what kind of reactions you get."

Doesn't quite work either, slings in the $100 are not uncommon. $500 for a car seat, well you know what, the most expensive one I could find was $350 (reduced to under $200 though). Do you want to try again?

I think the topic has been beat to death yet again. Let's close this before it evolves into personal attacks.
