Which baby products are worth splurging?

My mom suggested I make a baby registry, but when I looked up the checklists online a few questions came up.

For example, diaper bags. Their prices range like real handbags. I have a few pricier handbags that were worth the money- but is it the same when I’m carrying baby gear?

Also, car seats- I use public transportation or walk. I think i’ll still be needing a car seat at times, but is it just as good if I get the cheapest model out there?

Anything else (maybe you didn’t spend extra where you wish you would’ve, or overspent on something, I’d love to hear!)

Justin answers:

If you’re like me, you’re going to be using a diaper bag A LOT. My daughter’s diaper bag goes everywhere with us. My friend bought me a nice one with my daughter’s initials monogrammed on it. I think it was around $40. It was definitely worth every penny. It’s pretty sturdy, easy to clean, lots of space, etc. So, don’t get an extremely expensive one (I’ve seen $300 Coach diaper bags!) Get one that you think is cute and that you’ll want to tote around everywhere and will hold up well.

Car seats…I’m in my car with my daughter a lot. I bought a cheap Cosco carseat. A friend of mine bought me a more expensive Graco one. The Graco one is HANDS DOWN 500x better than the Cosco one. I LOVE her Graco carseat. I had the Cosco one installed at the fire department and it still made my daughter sit funny in it. She was kind of slumped over in it and nothing helped. The Graco one is great. But, for only occasional use, a cheaper one probably would work just fine.

Overspent on something…BOTTLES. I thought I HAD to buy the “Dr. Brown’s” bottles because they seemed to intricate and fancy. They didn’t do a thing for my daughter. The Playtex Drop Ins (I found them for $11 for a pack of 3) are so much better and didn’t cost me nearly as much.

Also…I bought my daughter a big swing thinking she’d love it…she doesn’t want anything to do with it. She hates it.

Something I wish I would have spent more money on…her crib and changing table. I bought them as a set at Walmart. Carters Child of Mine brand. The crib is fine, but the way it’s set up is kinda funny looking to me. The changing table sucks. The drawers are falling apart, pretty much. I wish I would have spent a little bit more for a nicer one.

And…a stroller. I bought one that went along with her “lovely” Cosco carseat I mentioned earlier. The stroller just sucks. I don’t like it at all. The carseat doesn’t fit properly in it and my daughter sits weirdly in it. I was lucky enough to have someone give me their old Graco stroller and it’s great. I love taking my daughter for walks in. I wish I would have spent more money on a better stroller to begin with!

Charles asks…

Questions about PTSD- are these symptoms?

I know someone that I suspect has PTSD, from a checklist of symptoms they tick most of the boxes. My two questions are is PTSD a mental illness, so are you born with a for want of a better word “fault” in your brain that makes you predisposed to the condition. Or can anyone develop it. Also i know flashbacks can occur of the event, and i have witnessed these occurring. And i also know that vivid and graphic night terrors are a symptom, not necessarily of the original trauma, just of anything distressing. Therefore my second question is can a person experience a “flashback” except of something that didn’t happen, for example so vividly experiencing a traumatic event, a death etc, that when the person returns from their “flashback-esque” trance, they cannot distinguish the dream from reality, and genuinely fear that their …day-terror, their hallucination, was real-life. I speak from witnessing such events and I would like to know if it is still akin to PTSD or if it is another condition. I except that perhaps this is not the place to ask a complex medical question, but any help would be greatly appreciated,

A worried friend.

Justin answers:

You are not born with any predisposition to have PTSD. The cause is from a traumatic event and needs to be worked on with mental health care professionals. The same way if you had a hearing problem you would see an audiologist.

About your second question, I think that the flashbacks they are having, is how their mind is coping. Like every illness, it affects everyone in their own way.

Mark asks…

Leaving home at 16 in Scotland?

First off, I would appreciate if nobody tells me how stupid I am, that I won’t cope etc – I’ve considered all the downsides, money problems etc already!
Basically, I am 16, I have completed my secondary education to the end of fifth year (I have sat five highers so hopefully will gain a good set of entry qualifications). I live in a rural area with my mother, who for years I have “coped” with, due to her bad temper and inability to sympathise with anything. I have no other family living in my house (my father is deceased and I’m an only child), and basically I feel completely isolated and down all the time due to my situation. I’ve been subjected to violence a few times in the past but not for a good year or so, just emotional effects really now.

As I have finished my education to a good level, and am at a legal age to leave home, I am deeply considering getting a flat with a friend within the next couple of months. My question is basically, can someone give me a checklist of the basic things I need to consider? For example, documents I should take, what benefits or help I am entitled to (if any), and other things of the sort? If I am moving away out of this area, how do I change doctors, dentists etc?

Thanks for your help – and please, no one telling me how idiotic you think I am and that I should just try talking to my Mum, trust me, I’ve tried everything I’ve ever been advised to do, and I feel ready to make a go of the world by myself.

Justin answers:

I know exactly how you feel, I am now 21 years old, and I wanted to move out at the age of 16 as well due to my mother and I conflicting with one another on a daily basis, however I was insuccessful in doing so. I would suggest that you go ahead and get emmancipated through the courts. The legalized documentation that you will need to survive on your own are obviously your birth Certificate, Social Security Card, Medical Cards/Records, and most importantly financial stability. I believe that if you become emmancipated, you will then be considered an adult legally, and can then go about handling things such as changing doctors and what not on your own, by simply contacting your insurance company, and letting them know you would like to do so.

Mind-Manipulating Groups: Are you or a Family Member a Victim?

The following statements, compiled by Dr. Michael Langone, editor of Cultic Studies Journal, often characterize manipulative groups.

Comparing these statements to the group with which you or a family member is involved may help you determine if this involvement is cause for concern.

Place a checkmark beside all items that characterize the group in question. If you check many of these items, and particularly if you check most of them, you might consider examining the group more closely. Keep in mind that this checklist is meant to stimulate thought, not “diagnose” groups.

We suggest that you check all characteristics that apply to your or your loved one’s group, then print this browser page for future reference. You may find that your assessment changes over time, with further reading and research.

Check List

The group is focused on a leader to whom members seem to display excessively zealous, unquestioning commitment.

The group is preoccupied with bringing in new members.

The group is preoccupied with making money.

Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged or even punished.

Mind-numbing techniques (such as meditation, chanting, speaking in tongues, denunciation sessions, debilitating work routines) are used to suppress doubts about the group and its leader(s).

The leadership dictates sometimes in great detail how members should think, act, and feel (for example: members must get permission from leaders to date, change jobs, get married; leaders may prescribe what types of clothes to wear, where to live, how to discipline children, and so forth).

The group is elitist, claiming a special, exalted status for itself, its leader(s), and members (for example: the leader is considered the Messiah or an avatar; the group and/or the leader has a special mission to save humanity).

The group has a polarized us- versus-them mentality, which causes conflict with the wider society.

The group’s leader is not accountable to any authorities (as are, for example, military commanders and ministers, priests, monks, and rabbis of mainstream denominations).

The group teaches or implies that its supposedly exalted ends justify means that members would have considered unethical before joining the group (for example: collecting money for bogus charities).

The leadership induces guilt feelings in members in order to control them.

Members’ subservience to the group causes them to cut ties with family and friends, and to give up personal goals and activities that were of interest before joining the group.

Members are expected to devote inordinate amounts of time to the group.

Members are encouraged or required to live and/or socialize only with other group members
