Car Sick Child

My 3yo daughter is getting sick in the car. We live about 45 min from my parents so we drive there fairly regular. After about 20 in the car she starts to complain about her tummy hurting. She has actually vomited in the car several times. Does any one else have this problem? If so what are you doing about it?

Potty Train Now?

My daughter turned 18 months yesterday. I received a bulletin from that said I could go ahead and buy a small toilet for my daughter to get used to seeing and possibly to use. She meets all the "signs" they list for being ready. Is it really time for that? Or is it too early? I do know that it is VERY important not to push this issue upon my daughter. Would purchasing one and just having it around be alright? Or should I wait? If I should get one, any recommendations on which one to get? I know some make noise when...

Convertible Car Seat V. Booster Seat

UPDATED: I'm trying to decide between a rear-facing/front facing convertible car seat and a front-facing/booster seat (Britax Frontier 85) for when my son is 2 and front facing. I know that booster seats are generally less safe than teh convertible car seats but I thought that was b/c of the lack of a 5 point harness. Britax Frontier HAS a 5 point harness so I'm wondering if its stil less safe than the convertible car seat or if they are now equally safe... What are the advantages/disadvantages of booster v. convertible car seat? Does...

Safety 1St Thermometer

Hello, I have the safety 1st thermometer for the arm, rectum and mouth...The instructions came with the different temperatures for each option. So what measures in the mouth is different from under the arm. Well I cannot find it. So I was wondering if anyone had that information. Also, I use the one for under the arm and I am not sure if it is accurate. Any thoughts/advice?? Thanks so much:)
