comment How do you decide if a movie is suitable for young children?
Best answer, "watch the movie yourself first". All the fine reviews and gradings are well and good but they don't know your child.

comment What to buy to prepare for the arrival of a new baby?
@JBRWilkinson, size considerations are important but you will need a carseat to take them home from the hospital which, depending on your locale, might be very quick - you might not have enough time to go and buy one while mother and child are in the hospital. Few if any 0-6 month seats will be too small for a newborn.
