Re: "Bad" parenting or just different?
Is she buckled in the carseat when left alone? If not, its VERY dangerous! Many babies have strangled to death in unbuckled carseats.
Like another poster said ... I too ABHORE bottle propping! One of my fellow baseball mommies does this while she chitchats, eats, etc. at games. She props the bottle in the stroller, then covers the stroller with a blanket. Ummm, not only is it sooo impersonal & cold, but your baby could choke! Milk is being forced down his/her throat!!! My Boys were bottle fed, but I NEVER propped a bottle!
