Please don't fret. The Irregular Baby is much too fussy to recommend anything that doesn't meet its picky standards.

We're parents too and have had experience with everything we write about. Good advice and bad, postive and negative views alike will be found here. When you're changing diapers, you're in no mood for self-censorship.

Evenflo Discovery Travel System - translation: it's a baby stroller

No man treats a motorcar as foolishly as he treats another human being. When the car will not go, he does not attribute its annoying behavior to sin; he does not say, "You are a wicked motorcar, and I shall not give you any more petrol until you go." He attempts to find out what is wrong and set it right. An analogous way of treating human beings is, however, considered to be contrary to the truths of holy religion. And this applies even in the treatment of little children. Many children have bad habits which are perpetuated by punishment but will probably pass away of themselves if left unnoticed. Nevertheless, nurses, with very few exceptions, consider it right to inflict punishment, although by doing so they run the risk of causing insanity. When insanity has been caused it is cited in courts of law as proof of the harmfulness of the habit, not of the punishment. -- Bertrand Russell, Has Religion Made Useful Contributions to Civilization? (1930)
