comment Are modern cloth diapers really cost efficient compared to disposible diapers?
gDiapers are not cloth diapers. They have a reusable shell but a disposable (compostable or reportedly 'flushable') insert that is rather expensive.

nice post, although I have had a different experience with a $20 umbrella stroller. It is light, portable, and durable.

comment What are some milestones a child should reach before learning programming?
Can't wait to check out Kinderlogo, and for the record my first grade class did well with vanilla logo. I'll have to dig up one of my old cassette tapes with the programs I wrote.

comment How can I potty train a 12 month old?
@Lennart I haven't kept up on potty training methods at later ages, but I was concerned by the tone of the OP, and some (grandparent, also previously Dr.Brazelton) raise such concerns about this method.

what evidence do you have that "It is extremely complex and would not provide the nourishment the child needs"? Not that I doubt that the manufacturing process is complicated, but the ingredient list is pretty straight forward.
