comment Should I stop my infant from sucking his thumb?
"As he grows older, he will gradually forgo this habit." - Or gradually learn to hide it from you. Depends on the kid.

comment Should I stop my infant from sucking his thumb?
It is is not a great way to comfort yourself at all. It can cause dental problems and it's almost impossible to get the kid to quit.

comment When is physical punishment appropriate?
Btw, I just saw this, and came to think of this discussion. It's a list of countries who has fallen into chaos with total lack of discipline and respect: raddabarnen.se/Documents/vad-vi-gor/varlden/vald-och-overgrepp/… No, just kidding, it's of course a map over countries where physical punishment of children is illegal.

comment What aspects should we consider when choosing a name for our child?
Yes, exactly my point. They will have infinite problems as their names ofte can't even be entered into American systems. Also Michał (which you in addition have no clue how to pronounce unless you are Polish) or for that matter Hallgrimur which is simply unpronouncable for most English-speakers. (Remember "Eyjafjallajökull"?)

@DaveClarke 1. I'm not Polish. 2. The world is anglo-centric, that's why. This is not ridicolous, it's pragmatic. Having non-ascii characters in your name causes problems. Being Swedish and having lived in Norway, iceland, France and Poland, I'm perfectly aware that they are "normal letters" in other alphabeths than English.

comment How can I stop my toddler from playing with electrical outlets and plugs?
@IanRingrose I know. Did you read what I wrote? Is anything unclear?

@IanRingrose Only if the socket already has protection that covers the live unless you plug something in. In that case, adding more protection will indeed not help. ;-)

comment How can I get my 12-month baby to sleep in her bed?
I edited this to get rid of the irrelevant (and frankly quite belittling) argumentative part, and kept the recommendation, which is good. That way I avoid having to downvote it and can upvote it instead.

comment What is the best way to transition from away from co-sleeping
"He can be sleeping in his bed next to yours" - In which case he is NOT sleeping in your bed. "he can be sleeping in his bed with a gap between his and yours" - in which case he is NOT sleeping in your bed. "should I continue?" - If you like. But yes, if the kid accepts sleeping in the same room as a substitute, that's good, but it is still not in your bed.

comment What are the key considerations when selecting a potty?
Changing to this as selected best answer, because this is exactly our experience. You could probably superglue some weights to the bottom of it to fix the "sticky-flaw".

comment What are the key considerations when selecting a potty?
Late comment with more experience: Yes, it's a good idea once that kid get's close to three years or so. At less than two it wasn't a hit.

comment What home-safety aspects should new parents consider?
@Hilmar Things may be fool-proof, but they can never be kid-proof. They can only buy you extra time to react. Door stops will not prevent kids from removing the stops. Plugs in your non-safe sockets will not prevent the kid from removing the plugs. And a child barrier will not prevent the child from climbing over or opening it. It just means it takes longer, so you have an extra chance to prevent the accident.

comment How do we help our toddler to sleep through the night?
@MrsPea: See above. Basically we made sure that she ate a lot during the day.

No one left anyone or anywhere. It's still the same room. Also, the question explicitly says "But our baby is not old enough to understand what you say".

comment Can fraternal twins develop their own “language”?
I can however say that you don't need twins for this. My daughter (soon three) has developed a whole set of words with unknown origins. She says "dlang" for round, counts "mooneh", "te" instead of "ett", "två" (Swedish) or "ras", "dva" (Polish), and also use words we haven't figured out what she means yet. She even resists trying to learn the "proper" words. I have no doubt that if we had twins there would be much more of this.

They do however just sat "dadadadadadada" which hardly can be construed as a "language".

comment Teaching K and G sounds
I make gingerbread cookies yesterday. Will try with Swedish "kaka" a lot over the next day and see if she gets how to say "k". :-)

comment What are the pros and cons of school-aged adopted children taking their adoptive parents' name?
And by changing the name they might feel that you are forcing them and that you are severing their links to their earlier life. So it's not that easy.

@balancedmama: You made this comment to the poster on an answer, not on the question. You probably want to move it.

comment How can I get my strong-willed daughter to stop being so lazy when it comes to chores?
My personal experience, which does not stretch to anyone being 8 except me, is that chores become a chore when forced to do them, but that they become less of a chore when you get praised for doing them well. Hence nagging or punishing isn't likely to work, since they are a part of why it's a chore in the first place. Now, what to do about it, I don't know...
