Thanks! I had been considering a Scenera for travel, but I wanted something more substantial in hubby's car. Maybe it would be smarter to just buy a Scenera for travel and then a nicer seat for our...

Is the babysitting all during the mom's parenting time? If so, then this is just one of those things that I think you have to step back and let go of. I know it can be hard -- you parent a child and...

Mine did exactly that: 6 hours from 4 weeks, but then went downhill and by 5 months was waking a LOT. We started her on solids, and gave her a big meal before bed, and now she sleeps all night.
