A Parent Hacks reader suggests adding ankle weights to prevent umbrella strollers from tipping over from the weight of a heavy diaper bag.

A reluctant father examines his hesitancy to let his son have a doll at Mothering and discovers that "Petey" has been one of the best teaching tools for modeling humane behavior for his son. After reading this we couldn't help but want to rewatch "William Wants a Doll" from Free To Be You And Me.
