My mom bought us a Combi Coccoro for our daughter. As soon as I opened the box and got a huge whiff of the fire retarding chemicals they douse the polyurethane seat cover in I knew it was going right back in the box and back to the store it came from (and hopefully into some unknown dimension where it couldn't do anyone any harm ever again). So gross and harmful to baby's health. I actually developed a sore throat and congested sinuses from contact with this car seat. I would never put an infant in something this toxic. It looks super cute and it is great that it can fit in smaller cars but the risk to baby's well-being just isn't worth it.

My boyfriend is talking about flying to California so that he can gather up all of his old lps (there in my mom's garage) and drive them back home in a rental van. I think this is a bad idea. I want him to win these records and start a chain reaction whereby he does not have to do anything and lp records will simply come to him.

The mattress support and (gasp!) my two week old daughter fell to the ground. I was mortified! I contacted the seller who responded with the following:
