You don't just take a dog off leash to teach them to come to you.  You do it in a confined location where the dog can't run off (and potentially bite a child!).  Or you do it with a long lead until...

I would at least try moving up to a convertable seat - it is money you have to spend otherwise.  Or before you do that, have you checked if the straps on his infant seat need to be moved up?  As an...

Everyone I know that was concerned about setting up "bad habits" only caused themselves more stress.  Seriously.  It is way, way too early to worry about any of that - just do whatever you need to...

I don't think you can even just buy dry ice around here.  That would definitely freak me out.  But I second the suggestion of a block of ice rather than cubes.  And if you don't have on already, the...

Claybear, I think you have a typo.  Unless you really are trying to lose 105 pounds this week, in which case it is definitely too ambitious!!

Yes, I would for sure do it as long as you know she wants it, and that you can afford it.  But it needs to be a gift, not an obligation.  Give it to her, accept her thanks, and then let it go.

Really, whichever one you will read and enjoy will work.  All this talk about translations is purely semantic if your bible just sits on the shelf.  :)
