As late as possible: The top heavy nature of a toddlers physique makes their neck,spinal cord and neck nerves at great risk during a frontal impact crash.Rear-facing allows the initial impact to be absorbed into the seat. See www.joelsjourney.org for info.The European standard has been rear-facing to 3 for > a decade & NHTSA recommended rear facing to 2 in 1999.Seats are now available that rear face to 40 lb.

Patella fracture: Work release depends on your ability to do light duty. The fracture will not heal for 6 weeks. If you do sedentary work, you may be able to work during that healing time. Otherwise, you have to wait at least 6 weeks, get a xray, check on the healing of the fracture, and discuss your recovery with your surgeon. ...Read more

23 month old throws fits when we have to get in the car seat. Can last an hr. Is it ok to turn the car seat to forward facing now? I can't force him
I wouldn't: You wouldn't ask the question unless you were ambivalent or really frustrated.You might try to locate a child passenger safety tech locally for help.Risk of neck/spine injury for forward facing kids depends on size, muscle tone and the crash involved.The European standard is rear facing to 3. Sometimes just giving small gifts for getting into the seat properly can help. ...Read more
6mo Baby rolled from crawling to back and hit head w/hardwood floor and possibly door frame. Cried a bit, played, fed, fell asleep. Reason to go to ER?
Head: No, especially if the baby is acting fine. Watch for extreme irritability, vomiting in the first 4-12 hrs after any potential injury, and if so then ER. But if the baby was on the floor and rolled and hit head, that mechanism of injury shouldn't be severe. If fell off bed onto hardwood floor, then different story. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pick your crash ??: The 5 point restraint belts are now available in safety seats up to 80+ pounds from some sources. These systems offer the broadest range of protection from rollover, side impact, front or rear impact crashes. Simple boosters offer little protection during rollover or side impact events. I go for the best possible protection, since no one can pick their crash. ...Read more

Your concern tells me what a lucky baby this is to have such a caring mom. Hope this helps you feel better. Best wshes to you and the baby. ...Read more

5 cases chickenpox @ 7 mo. Baby's daycare. Should we yank from daycare until the incubation period ends so she doesn't keep getting exposed?
Probably too late: The difficult thing about controlling chickenpox is its contageous period. Kids are often most contagious 1-2 days before they break out & may have no other symptoms. You may get lucky & avoid it, but 10-21 days after first true exposure your infant may or may not develop the illness. ...Read more
