Car Seat for Air Travel for 3.5 Yo

We're flying with our 1 yo old and 3.5 yo. The 1 yo will be on my lap. We will check his car seat. Question is: do I use a car seat for the 3.5 yo. He's pretty tall, about 42" and about 40 lbs. His car seat seems huge (Graco Nautilus) and I can't imagine him having any room. We will probably check his car seat anyway for driving around but I can't imagine using it on the plane. A friend said that she uses a booster for her 4 yo (who is smaller than my 3.5 yo) but I don't think that is approved by the FAA. I guess it's up to the...

What's the Best Money You Ever Spent on Making Life Easier?

Hi Ladies, I thought I'd ask you this question because I am SO happy that I had a large coat closet converted into a pantry on one side and closet on the other. It makes my life so much easier because I feel more organized with the pantry. My mom tried talking me out of it by saying stuff like..... "Oh save your money for more important things.... you don't need that." Well.... true, I don't NEED it, but it sure has made life easier since I can fit my canned foods in there, trays, tuperware, etc... without having to run to the laundry...

Advice on Infant Car Seat That You Love

I am about to have a fourth baby and I want to get my baby a new seat. I have been looking at the Britax Companion, but I am wondering if anyone has had that one or recommend something else. (the Peg Perego Viaggio?)I want to be able to get a stroller in the near future that is compatible with a variety of car seats. I just can't get everything I need right now.

Public Restroom Diaper Changing W/o Counter

My daughter's asking for any/all ideas for diaper-changing an infant in a public restroom if there is no area provided and no flat surface other than the floor. She and her husband just returned from their first weekend out-of-town with their 8-month-old daughter. It was a surprise, and very difficult, to find so many restaurants with nowhere to change the baby. Ideas that have worked for you?

Doesn't Really Drink More Then 5 Oz @ a Time and Doesn't Want to Sleep Alone.

So my little one is now 2 1/2 months and is eating quite a bit but he drinks 3 to 5 oz at a time. He's eating like every 2 hrs. I am bottle feeding so to my understanding he shouldn't be eating so little bit at a time and so frequent. He doesn't stay asleep to long and when he hears my voice he all he wants is my arms. My husband is at home right now taking care of our kids and he says that both of them r fine ALL day but once they hear my voice they both act up. I also need to know if anyone has advice to get JJ (newborn) to sllep by him...

Do You like the Graco Nautilus Car Seat?

I'm looking to purchase an extra car seat for my son who is a little over 2 yrs old. We currently have the britax marathon, and are looking for another one for the other car that is more versatile and can be used for a really long time. If you have the Graco nautilus, do you like it? I would love any opinions. Thanks!

Ready to Potty Train but Not Walking Yet!

My 17 month old is already showing signs of readiness to potty train. Every time she wets herself or otherwise, she takes off her dirty diaper and says "ca ca" one day during nap time she took of her diaper and went poop in her crib "yuck". She definatly doesn't want to go in her diapers. But, here's my problem she still refuses to walk!I've tried everything!!! She won't use her little push walker(too fast) or push a chair (too difficult). She will only walk while holding both of your hands or holding onto a piece of furniture. If you let...

Opinion on Graco Cribs

Does anyone have an opinion on Graco cribs? I haven't been able to find a store that displays them and have only been able to find them online from Walmart. I like the simplicity of their cribs but would like to 'kick the tires' before I purchased one. Or are there places in the area that have inexpensive but good looking cribs that we can look at in person?

Sunshinde Kids Carseat Question or Any Other Suggestions?

Hey moms! I have a huge baby. He's 28 lbs and 30 inches at 9 months. When he was 3 months old he out grew his infant seat so I got a britax marathon. I love the seat! But I want to keep my son rear facing for longer than the year. I'm pretty sure by his birthday he'll either be close or past the 35 lbs. (I hope not) So in case he does I will buy a new seat. I've been looking into the Sunshine kids Radian XTSL, but it doesn't look that comfortable since the back looks like it's stick straight. Or do you have other suggestions. I won't use...
