My child is fully vaxed: I believe in vaxing. I do not think the injury you described warrants vaxing.

But if I were you, I would get the tetanus vax. This is apparently the first (really?) of...

This is not true. Infant seats must pass safety tests with and without bases. It's fine to use it without the base, as long as you can reliably install it each and every time.

That depends on the manufacturer. Graco is good until the end of the year, some others expire on their birthdays.

I'm a CPST and I can tell you that new, narrower carseats would be cheaper than a new car. What seats are your older kids in right now and what vehicle are you driving?

I think what's rubbing me the wrong way is that the posters who advocate for forcing/encouraging/whatever kids to eat everything have acknowledged that their kids don't seem to really mind doing so. ...

If we think of food as love, it's even more important to me that my daughter gets what she feels she needs (within reason, of course). I'm somewhat annoyed by pickiness. I'm not offended.

My child is picky. She is not disabled. It would still be very unkind, and not at all nurturing, for me to make her go hungry because she has different opinions about dinner than I do. She knows...

I'm seeing a lot of judgement here -- "the food is good", "the food is elegant". That's an opinion. It's obviously not the child's opinion.

I think manners should be enforced, and I don't think...

This will not "wipe out picky eating" or food aversions. It will make kids angry and resentful and make food a power struggle. It's easy when you have a 1yo; much more complicated when your child...
