comment Installing car seat base…how tight is good enough?
You don't have to pull all of the seatbelt through the feeder. Pull just enough through to latch it, and keep the excess on the original side when you pull it out to activate the locking mechanism.

comment When should you worry about a toddler's loss of appetite and weight?
@Aqualullaby - Short answer - if you're worried, talk to your child's doctor. It's better to talk to them and it turn out to be nothing/normal, than to ignore it and have it be something serious.

comment When should you worry about a toddler's loss of appetite and weight?
@Aqualullaby - "Crossing x curve" doesn't really work either. What if they dance on a threshold naturally? 10% bodyweight is generally considered significant, regardless of starting or ending size (for example, in adults a 10% decrease in bodyweight is linked to significant improvement in heart health; it doesn't matter if the person was 175 or 350 pounds before the weight loss).

comment Are modern cloth diapers really cost efficient compared to disposible diapers?
Some daycares are willing to use cloth diapers if you ask, though they may have certain requirements. We use the GroVia AI2 diapers and have them set up like the disposables, so the daycare workers don't have to do anything with the inserts. We also provide individual wet bags for the used diapers, and a larger wet bag to put them in.

comment Does a water softener add sodium to your drinking water?
To add - the salt in a water softening system is only used during the regeneration/recharge cycle, in which the salt is used to flush out the other minerals in the system and not directly used in the water we use. See: homerepair.about.com/od/plumbingrepair/ss/water_softener_7.htm

@Beofett - Perhaps it would be better to move to diy.so, instead of outright closing it?

comment 12 month old doesn't understand what we say
@ElizabethMarie - Here are WebMD's descriptions for 10 and 11 month milestones - webmd.com/parenting/baby/baby-development-11-month-old webmd.com/parenting/baby/baby-development-10-month-old . It sounds like he's about on par with regard to walking/cruising, at least. I recommend finding a play group to help his social/communication skills. It's amazing what little kids can teach each other.

@DaveClarke - The actual city doesn't really matter. The point is that some places have a public service program and that the asker should see if her area has one.
