comment What types of developmental milestones should we be concerned about?
This is way too broad for this type of Q&A, where you're looking for an overall primer of child development. It is more useful to ask about specific questions you have, otherwise users are only guessing what information will actually be useful to you. There's nothing inherently wrong with asking "what should I worry about?" but such conversations are better suited to a threaded discussion forum than this type of Q&A.

comment How can a parent remain sane? How do you keep your energy and temper?
I really appreciate your on-going contribution to this site but this question is really chatty. One of the difficulties facing a site like Parenting is keeping the questions (and answers) a product of expertise (or at least hard-earned experience). This question sounds like someone had a hard day and really just needed to reach out to a support group. I can appreciate the sentiment but I really have to close this as not a good fit for this site. See: Good Subjective, Bad Subjective

comment What should we pack when going camping with an infant?
I would suggest moving the beach/swimming portion of your post to another question. It's a bit of a tangent from asking about camping, even though the swim just happens to be part of a camping trip.

comment What books are in your parenting reference library?
On these Stack Exchange sites, questions are usually about specific problems you are facing. This is a very broad, generalized poll of the community and not really appropriate for this type of Q&A site. I have to close this, but if you have other questions about parenting, please feel free to try again. Thanks.

comment How can firearms be secured from children?
I hope you are right and that the proper education sticks from day one, without fail... or lapse in judgment.

comment How can firearms be secured from children?
So your definition of "securing a gun" is a combination of "buy one that requires more strength to fire" and "teach them well and trust their judgment?" I have a lot of respect for your excellent contributions to these systems, but even the most avid gun enthusiast would shudder at this advice.

@HedgeMage: I guess that depends in how accessible the gun safe is. The authors stated that it was "completely inaccessible." I'm only offering alternatives to consider.
