comment Can I help settle my child and make them enjoy nappy changing
+1: We're suffering from this with a 3 week old, and every midwife/family elder just sort of nods, so it appears to be a common issue.

comment What are the objective arguments against immunizations for infants and children?
The source given reads: "Legal decisions were made and damages awarded despite the lack of scientific evidence to support vaccine injury claims", so I don't think it answers the question the way it's being presented here. An attempt to prevent out-of-court settlements for nuisance suits from leading to epidemics is not evidence of serious harm, it's evidence of ambulance chasing. As Beofett points out, there is a good table there, but all it gives is an acknowledgement of potential harm, not actual figures.

comment Can pacifier-use interfere with breastfeeding?
We used a cup with a lip for additional feed, as it causes less nipple confusion, at the cost of more spillage.

comment How can we make our newborn breastfeed less frequently?
Ah, someone else using "8-9 days" and "a short time" as mutually exclusive concepts. Good to know I'm not alone.

comment Gift idea for breastfeeding mom
+1 for cup. BIG cup. With a lid and a straw. My partner's currently breastfeeding, and a cup that she can drop from a short height without spilling everywhere is a godsend. Especially as she's stuck for 20 minutes/half an hour, unable to move, with water being drained out of her by our adorable spawn.

Depends on the circs. I was pretty worried and low, and alcohol would have been the wrong choice.

Now granted, my child may not share my opinion, but it can be added to the list of stuff your teenager blames you for.

comment What are the risks of posting baby pictures online?
+1, & This is likely to end up being the accepted one, as it's got the risks in, but is more in tune with my feelings on them. Possibly it's generational, but I personally am unworried about people I know seeing my baby photos. The bullies who genuinely get under your skin don't use 6-year old baby photos you can blame your parents for, they go for the embarrassing things you do without thinking, or just making something up. I personally was teased for 3 years about supposedly being in love with a fictional pink hedgehog. Being a baby at one point would have been much easier to ignore somehow.

comment What are the risks of posting baby pictures online?
+1 because it lays out the risks clearly and sensibly, with the caveats. But actually, I'd say Twitter's got adequate protection, and has the highly handy idiom that past data is less important and harder to retrieve.

Doesn't have any. Doesn't wear them generally.
