I still nurse my one-year-old in public all the time. She's not walking and she's in the 25th percentile for height and weight, so it's not she looks like a big kid - but she has both a word and a...

Nobody's face is perfectly symmetrical. It's normal to have one eye that's a slightly different shape or size. It's much more pronounced in some people than others, but it's very common. I believe...

I would absolutely take the base. Put it in a suitcase if you must. We didn't take the base for our carseat when we flew with our baby earlier this year, and the seatbelt-only install was never,...

I understand. We usually get a wake-up call between 5 and 5:30, and there's no getting her back to sleep until naptime. It's really exhausting.

I don't have ANY advice - just sympathy.

I appreciated every opportunity to have a few minutes alone, out of the house, with my husband. We've left her once a month since she was 4 months old for an hour and a half or so. And when my mom...

I've seen this happen. Leaving one's breasts exposed after nursing is very unlike the occasional exposure of a baby who pops on and off, IMO.

To be honest, I think it's one of those things that...

We used ours for about six months until she seemed to be getting too big to sleep in it comfortably. She uses every inch of her crib now, so I'm guessing she appreciates the extra space!

Yup, me too. I was so worried about the quantity of hair I was shedding with every shampoo that I asked my doctor, and she said it was normal. Sigh. Too bad.
