Hooooo I'm glad you said that. The BF quit smoking while I was pregnant, but recently started smoking 1 or 2 a day...he always changes his clothes after he smokes and usually showers right away too, before holding her, but do you think it could still be affecting her? On his breath or something?

Better, MM, but not 100% and of course Everleigh caught it too. So we both suck at sleeping right now because of stuffy noses. Thanks for asking!

Everleigh has always sneezed quite a bit. It could be any number of things with Lillian but, yes, it could be the cigarette smoke. D has to change and wash his hands when he gets home.

This came across my fb feed this morning and given recent discussions, I thought I'd share it here:

2 Is The New 1: Rear-Facing Car Seats Until At Least Age 2

Rear facing is 5 times safer and rear facing kids are 75% less likely to die or have a serious injury in an accident.

Does anyone know where I can find info on the importance of properly fitted straps? Preferably with really horrifying diagrams or videos?

It definitely could be but neither Matt or I smoke and Falon still sneezes lol. You could try having him brush his teeth too? Or just wait a couple days and see if it passes. I've noticed that Falon will go a couple days with lotsa sneezing and then have a week or so with hardly any.

Wow. I was just talking with my Mom about this and while she has been incred-annoying about some stuff (rice cereal I'm looking at you) she totally agrees with leaving seats rear facing until two. Now I just need to find the funds for a convertible carseat we can leave in my car because I'm too weak to lift ours + Falon into the middle seat.

Not sure if this will help Taq, but I've heard good things about the convertible seat Costco carries AND they do occasionally come up on zulily.

I know an important thing to consider with convertible car seat is their height restrictions.

Also, for the record, if my mom disagrees with any of my decisions, I take it as affirmation that I'm on the right track. Lol

My mom is driving me INSANE. Besides all the little annoyances there's the adjusting her car seat straps to toddler sized the first and last (very last EVER) time I let her take Lillian out, and her insisting on putting big fleece blankets and stuffed animals in her cradle because "babies need to be cozy".

Tomorrow I'm leaving Lilly with her other grandma. It will be the first time she's been watched by someone other than her dad or my mom. And, depending on how long my mani/pedi takes, will only be the third time I've been away from her for more than 1 hour.

Try telling an almost three year old fashionista what to wear... it doesn't go over well. O.o
