So I went downstairs to get my DH a drink and I heard my mom crying. I went to her room and asked what was going on and she tells me her cousin messaged her. I figured it was another death in the family or something, so I said "who died this time?" She starts saying grandma (her mom), who passed in January, was burning in hell, according to her cousin. I asked what brought this on and she shows me the texts.
He decided to tell my mom that he doesn't believe grandma went to heaven because she wasn't religious enough and didn't have a "Strong enough relationship with God" like he does. He sent her about 20 different long ass Bible quotes and also said his father was in hell too so she wasn't alone. My mom says no she's with her husband and they're both at peace. Her cousin keeps telling her no, that all 3 are in hell and are burning there for their sins. Also that unless she became as religious and "Godly" as him, she would end up right there with him.

So in the setting, we have the famous anti-psykers, commonly known as blanks/nulls/blunts/etc. These are soulless creatures, whose very existence manifests in the warp as a kind of black hole of existence. Most famous and powerful of these are the Culexus assassins, who literally drain the life from psykers nearby. These unfortunates are inherently anathema to creatures with souls, manifesting as an unreasoning hatred, a perception that they smell bad, or physical pain upon touching them.
Now, I've heard it said often that blanks have differing power levels just like psykers, but the "ceiling" on a blank seems much lower than on psykers. The strongest human psykers can kill armies or shatter cities, to say nothing of transhumans like the Emperor or Magnus. Blanks are shown to slightly stymie psykers on this level, but only in numbers and not enough to win on their own. The sisters of silence fighting Magnus on Luna would have very quickly been dead had Guilliman and his soldiers not b... keep reading on reddit ➡
You are about 10ft away from them and you have an infinite supply of frozen nuggets, just how many would u need to throw at them before they get knocked out?
I had a child a few months ago and am in a mommy group on Facebook for those with little ones the same age. Someone asked if anyone had ever yelled at their baby so far, and so many people commented that yes they had and "it's ok mommy! You're still a good mom, everyone breaks and yells at their babies when they cry too much" etc. Etc. This giant feedback loop of moms who are abusing infants patting themselves on the backs.
No! Not everyone yells at their babies. When babies cry it's because they're in pain, they need something, they can't communicate or do it for themselves and it's frustrating. Yelling at them accomplishes nothing, except to confuse and scare them.
I commented something similar, that I had never yelled at my baby because when they cried it was because they were hurting or needed something, and got attacked by one of the other moms for mom-shaming. And I didn't want to pick a fight say how I really felt to her in that thread, that yeah, I do think you're a bad mom... keep reading on reddit ➡

I have a 3 month old son who was born in February. He was born 5 weeks premature and I am very protective of him due to everything going on. He is the only child I will have the chance to have and I think this makes me even more careful with him. My MIL doesn't seem to understand the situation and constantly crosses my boundaries. I need to know if I am crazy or if she is really a JustNo.
While I was pregnant, my MIL began to make me feel very uncomfortable and would make comments about how she was so excited for her baby to be born. There was an incident where she made me pull up my shirt to show her my belly and another time she got really handsy with my stomach and just wouldn't stop touching me. Generally, she kept doing things that made me incredibly uncomfortable and I tried my best to avoid her when I could.
My son was born 5 weeks early due to serious pregnancy complications. We were in the hospital for almost a week. The day... keep reading on reddit ➡
My partners sister is throwing her little one a huge first birthday party and there’s no doubt that she will have an expensive decorative cake made. She’s also invited 40 of her friends to this first birthday. I don’t care, I just don’t get it.
Edit: Didn’t realise that this would wind up so many people. I still don’t get it but I can appreciate that it’s more so for parents I guess. Still though, a small get together with family for me would suffice, I still don’t get throwing an extravaganza for a one year old infant with 40 adults.
I (30f) feel very frustrated currently. My husband (41m) told me that all of a sudden we are going on a road trip to North Carolina with his family. We have an 8-month-old and we’ve never gone on a trip with him at all yet, yet alone a road trip. I feel super unprepared. His family booked us an AirBnB, but this morning it was cancelled, I assume something to do with coronavirus restrictions (they weren’t clear & it wasn’t the host). I had nothing to do with any of this and didn’t even know about the trip until after the AirbNb was booked. And we’re supposed to leave in a week!
I was somewhat relieved after being stressed about preparing for this trip the past few days (our baby also suddenly has come down with diarrhea). I told my husband that maybe it’s better off we don’t go. I told him that I haven’t even felt comfortable sharing with people that were going on a trip because it goes against social distancing (and ultimately my morals). He exclaimed in response, “WHY DO YOU CARE... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m Ed Damiano, and for nearly 20 years I’ve been developing bionic pancreas technology to automate blood-sugar control.
When my infant son, David, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, my wife and I learned quickly how hard it was to get insulin dosing right in managing his blood-sugar levels, especially in such a small child. I began to imagine a wearable bionic pancreas that would automatically manage his blood-sugar levels without our intervention or his, when he grew up and became responsible for his own care.
Inspired by David’s diagnosis, I began developing, testing, and refining bionic pancreas technology. My students, postdocs, and I began conducting experiments at Boston University testing an early version of the device running on a laptop computer in 2005. Together with our clinical collaborators at the Massachusetts General Hospital, we progressed to in-patient trials in adults and adolescents with type 1 diabetes in 2008. Between 2013 and 2018, my team at BU and our cl... keep reading on reddit ➡
The first Starfleet officer on the scene, pulling open his tricorder, immediately realizes the infant is anything but human, has presently unknown species DNA, and appears to be faintly catalyzing infrared, visible, and ultraviolet light into an unknown energy within its cellular structure.

I recently left my husband with my little one and moved in with a relative who has kids of their own. I’m honestly feeling overwhelmed and noticing I’m starting to shut down. I’m still able to take care of my little one’s needs but it feels like I’m burning out at the beginning of the race.
I have no time for myself. Sometimes it’s hard to even wash my face in the morning. The only free time I have is to go on walks but with this California heat it’s made it incredibly difficult.
I’m feeling overwhelmed at the thought of what I need to get done. I don’t know how I’m going to make a living when I don’t have childcare. I don’t even have a car right now and I’m scared to drive.

As soon as the sleeping hours begin, broadcast what you recorded to family and friends, multiple times if needed, with beaming pride.. Then with remaining time, watch those on repeat and get high with them oxytocin till its wake hour again.

I would like to know if it would be possible to obtain custody of my deceased sister's infant child and prevent his adoption through the Indian Child Welfare Act? For clarification, my husband, family, and I are active members of the Kiowa tribe in Oklahoma and live within tribal jurisdiction. We regularly participate in events and have a member involved in government.
Two years ago, my 14-year-old sister ran away from home, and earlier this month her boyfriend informed us that she had passed away from COVID-related pneumonia; he also told us that he was putting her 1-year-old baby boy up for adoption. From the way he referred to my nephew, it sounded as though he was not the biological father of the baby.
My husband, our extended families, and I would like to raise our nephew within our culture after two centuries of our native children being stolen and sold to white families or put into foster care, and from what I understand, the Indian Child Welfare Act is supposed to... keep reading on reddit ➡
Living in the US and my wife is Japanese and is saying that gently rocking our baby to soothe him is not done at all in Japanese culture and she strongly discourages me from doing it because she thinks it is negatively impacting our growing baby’s brain and learning ability. Is this true? I’ve watched several videos that strongly discourage shaking babies (of course this is harmful) which could lead to shaken baby syndrome but ive watch educational videos and even observed couples in the US with infants gently rocking their babies to help them calm down and soothe their baby. Does anyone have any input on this matter?
I put the screenshots together on this doc. I also scribbled out their name, and mentions of our ages.
Also, mentions of "male/female, man/woman" stuff, I wasn't specific about transgender people involved in those categories, which I don't think should/would offend anybody, because this was just my argument, but also I apologize in advance if anybody does take offense. I also got a bit immature/irrational at one point because I was beyond pissed off, and TW because I mention breasts alot (with more skewed language), there's mention of drugs, r*pe, bombings, and abortion.
Also, it got kind of confusing at some parts, so if anybody would like clarification behind my messages or what I interpreted their messages as, feel free to PM or comment :)
Me and my parents live in the US. My parents have found out unexpectedly that I am upset about getting circumcised as an infant. My mom spent 45 minutes reading studies from Mayo Clinic(an American not-for-profit organization academic medical center) saying how it is medically necessary to cut the foreskin off to prevent the spread of diseases. Mom is all about how the Mayo Clinic is extremely reliable and should absolutely be trusted. She compared getting a circumcision to getting a vaccine. I told them that America is pretty much the only industrialized country that performs routine infant circumcisions. Her reply was “that just shows how good America is when it comes to medical science”. I tried saying how the foreskin has many sexual benefits and they denied that. I tried pointing out that I didn’t have any say to the procedure and they didn’t think it was a big deal. I pointed out that I would have felt excruciating pain during the procedure but they were like “you don’t remember... keep reading on reddit ➡

On February 11, 1971, a white female infant was discovered in a shopping bag in a trash can in Pulaski Park, located in Cudahy, Wisconsin. The baby was wrapped in some bloody clothing and towels, and was frozen solid due to the winter conditions.
Also found in the bag with the body was a Kroger's receipt and, most interestingly, a three page essay about buffalo. The essay doesn't have a name on it, though it does have "group 4" written in the upper left hand corner of the first page. Accordingly, it seems like at least two people may have contributed to the report, as the cursive handwriting changes at one point in the middle of the same page.

Then, a page for ‘paid tolls.’ This is where she found herself, complete with photos of her six month old son, stolen from her private Instagram and shared on a public website. This page is the worst. It’s for single moms of biracial children and women who have been killed by their partners.
We are infuriated. I don’t know how to help, but the fact the baby is involved is disgusting and rage-inducing. The social climate in the country is so bad right now, and she’s stressed enough without worrying about now public photos of her baby.

Now I know Reddit is filled with Americans and they have the third highest unnecessary/non medical based circumcision rates in the world, so this will be super unpopular
Alot of people don't realize this was a religious practice to "keep their men clean" but by this, they mean- stop them from touching their penis. Aka "stopping the problem of masturbating"
I've been with circumcised and uncircumcised, all are equal IMO
But I honestly think circumcising babies takes away their choice and is unnecessary 90% of the time
We started reading to my little sister when she was a toddler and she was reading before she went to kindergarten. I remember being impressed and thinking that we had done a very good job.
I am now an adult raising an infant in the 2020s. Here in the future, you are supposed to start reading to your fetus in utero. "Literacy starts early!" Eighteen months is early. Nine weeks' gestation just strikes me as silly. "It's a bonding experience! The fetus likes to hear your voice!" It hears your voice all day, unless you are a nun and you took a vow of silence. (How does a silent nun get pregnant?)
Reading to infants is a typical brag subject on parenting forums, and you are not allowed to question it. "My newborn looooooves Goodnight Moon!" Can newborns even make visual sense of Goodnight Moon? I'm asking because I'm a grown-up and I have trouble making visual sense of Goodnight Moon.

So my mom is still trying to convince me that circumcising me as an infant was the right thing to do. She told me that she read an article online that said how people have ruined their lives by listening to other’s “extremist” opinions on the Internet. I have no idea if she really did read an article like this or if she is just lying. She said that circumcised men who are upset they were circumcised as infants are examples of these people who have “extremist” views. She said that they want more people to be uncircumcised because “they are more in the minority and want more to be like them so they don’t feel alone”. We live in the US. She then asked if I had taken my mind off of circumcision to think of “better and happier thoughts” to which I had to lie. What do you think of her opinion?
I have a question im not sure if its been asked: what advice would you give for a spare pack for a bug out bag for a baby?
Trying to get an idea of what works and what doesn’t. I’m finding out current system not working well.
After I get some good answers I'm going to ask babies pediatrician about it and hope everything works out.
More info: So our baby started off with milk based formula because he spent some time in NICU and that's what they were giving him before we even found out. And within 1 month of age he needed two noninvasive heart surgeries so we didn't want to mess with his formula and risk him loosing weight from not liking it. Now he's 2 months old and he still drinks milk based but it has less lactose "for sensitive tummies." Our pediatrician recommended it because he's been in pain while eating. After weeks of drinking this formula he's STILL having a rough time. So now our pediatrician recommended putting oatmeal in his milk. We told her last time that we are vegan and she said she's all for veganism but doesn't like soy based formula. I'm ashamed that I forgot to ask her if there were any non soy formulas that she recommends. So now I'm here asking you guys since you're vegan parents and... keep reading on reddit ➡

TL:DR my girlfriend and I struggle with finding common ground on Infant Baptism. I'm for it, she's against it. Seeking encouragement, prayer, and/or advice.
I was introduced to this sub by a friend from my church a couple weeks ago, and this is my first post. My name is Peter, I'm 20 years old, have been a Christian my entire life, and have been dating my girlfriend for just over a year, as of April. From the beginning, we've butt heads on multiple religious topics. I come from a URC and she goes to Christ's Church of the Valley (CCV), which, if you're not from Phoenix, is a well-known and very populated mega church type. Of all the topics, the hardest one for us has been infant baptism. I am very much in favor of it, as I understand it as the sign, symbol, and seal of God's promises to us as children. She, on the other hand, does not like it. She always points to NT verses like Mark 1:15 and 16:16 which say things like "repent and believe" or "believe and be baptized."
