You have a baby on the way and you'll have enough stress on your own! I say drop this issue and wait it out. It will go on for a year more, tops. Nobody breastfeeds forever.

Sure, but a constitutional legal battle takes years. Meanwhile, dad now has custody of the kid and will likely get him cut before any court can decide on anything.

Is her alternative school part of the public system? Sometimes alternative schools don't do as much to accommodate disabilities... because they don't have to.

Are you sure you're actually insensitive, or is your partner just accusing you of being insensitive so he doesn't have to deal with your concerns? Does he use your *tone* as a way of shutting down...

Well, I can't say I've put my baby down in a gas station store. But mom is standing right over baby, so she could grab him if he rolled over or started licking something etc. And it's unlikely he'd...

You should do whatever you think he'd prefer. Lots of shots but only one visit, or a few visits but fewer pokes. It depends on what he finds less scary.

I am glad they have this forum too. All the anti-vaccine conspiracy theories really undermine the Attachment Parenting thing, I think. It makes us all look nuts by association.
