At any moment in time I may wear one of these hats: interaction designer, coder, gamer, educator, hacker, athlete, musician, chef, woodworker. I like to dabble in lots of things...from the virtual to the physical.

comment When is a banana ripe enough to not cause constipation?
I agree that hydration is a big factor. I didn't use to think that ripeness mattered, but there were many sources that I read which indicates that it does. I think that part of the inconsistent conclusions regarding bananas/ripeness/constipation is due to the subjective determination of 'ripeness' of a banana. :) Please see my update above.

comment What are the proper precaution for using cow's milk to feed babies?
Sorry @DA01, the question initially was misleading because it mentions pumped breast milk which is usually for younger infants. :)

comment Installing car seat base…how tight is good enough?
One thing to keep in mind is to periodically check the snugness of the fit. I found that over time, the seat cushion stays compressed and doesn't offer as much resistance. So, I've had to push again with my foot as I tighten the straps.

comment Is there any scientific evidence in favor of co-sleeping with children?
We have a technique for cosleeping which I think reduces the accidental asphyxiation from smothering (just speaking intuitively, I don't have any stats). We actually put the baby between us, at the same head level as us. We move our pillows so that she has about a foot or so of space. We started doing this when she was about 4 months old. It has worked out well for us.
