comment Should I monitor my child's internet usage?
I don't think logging is a good thing at any age unless you suspect something is very wrong. It's somewhat like reading a diary; needed in some cases, but not to be done without cause. I'd simply reduce the blocking as they are older.

Do you or your wife have an opinion on the ExcerSaucer? It seems like it would suffer from some of the same problems as jumper.

These are the sorts of things I've heard, but without a source it makes me wonder how much is just hearsay.

If we hold him at the hips, our son can stand and support his trunk. I think he'd like it unless it provides less or different support than I imagine.

That's a really neat toy. I've never seen anything like that.
