Man, that is tough.

I don't think I could have a child with someone, living in fear that they'd take the child and have him circ'd.

Giving in is not an option, imo.

He should not be "leaning" back, just sitting so that his butt is a little lower than his knees. Also, the fabric should hit where his knees bend, not into his thighs.

I feel like it's not that often that we get "happy endings" around here, so your update is awesome! Thank you for standing up for your baby. He'll be so happy you did.

I just learn to deal w/ the sweat in the summer. LOL. Or if it's that hot I do just use the stroller.

One idea to keep baby cool is to put a damp hat on him/her. Or even use a damp sling.
