This answer is perhaps the best argument I could see made for this question being closed as opinion based.

comment How to stop parents from interfering with my love life?
That seems very rude to your 'date', who isn't at fault here. Nor is it a good idea from the perspective of your reputation, which might affect employment prospects. Honesty is always better, even if it's uncomfortable.

comment Help troubled 5 year old boy on 2nd suspension for kindergarten
@JamesSnell, that's the ideal, but sometimes there does need to be more action needed. Physical violence isn't even the only reason; some children can be so disruptive even in kindergarten that they prevent other children from learning, at which point there's really no other choice than to remove them until either the parents intervene (often they haven't) or child psychologists or doctors can be consulted to help the parents formulate a plan, along with the teachers and administrators. I wouldn't assume a single act caused a suspension; it's much more likely a repeated pattern did.

comment Poop-training and cleaning up
We ended up doing 'first rinse', which he was happy to participate in: I'd take it off, make a show of dumping it in the potty and saying 'poop goes in the potty', then he'd help rinse it in the sink after he finished trying to make more. He was happy to do that, didn't have any issues.

comment Poop-training and cleaning up
We ended up doing some naked time, and that seemed to have a significant benefit: we didn't actually have any messes on the floor! He was able to indicate when he needed to go (physically at first, but by Sunday verbally) and went.

comment How are pregnancy ultrasounds administered?
The 3D ultrasounds are generally not performed by the hospital, but by third parties (often at malls or similar locations). They are somewhat controversial, as to whether they may pose some risk to the fetus for no diagnostic gain.

comment Till what age will an infant keep waking to nurse each 3 hours?
If the pacifier works, they are not hungry. That's one of the better signs actually. Pacifier makes them feel good but doesn't remove the hunger sensation if it exists.

Sounds like its time for daddy to pitch in at night then (spoken as a daddy who enjoyed doing so from time to time!)

Not sure what that has to do with supply, which was the part of your comment I was disagreeing with.

While I certainly agree no one should feel bad about needing to use formula for any reason, regular pumping in addition to feeding increases production, not decreasing it.
