comment How do we help our toddler to sleep through the night?
This isn't an answer, it is a comment. But we tried moving her into her own room, it made absolutely no difference. There is no "Hungry baby" formula here.

comment How can I encourage my 13 month old to stand?
Although I agree with "not worrying" I want to say that I think it is important to create challenges for you child so he/she develops on all levels. Standing is one such. Encourage it, help her "train". On everything. :-)

comment What are the most important features to look for in a baby monitor?
The most important feature is that it makes you trust it so you feel less worried. I'd say everything else is pretty much irrelevant, as that's the whole point of the baby monitor. :-)

comment How can I handle a child that claims medical problems as a bad excuse?
Well, I don't really know, but I would more or less ignore it. Especially I wouldn't let the excuse work. If their excuses doesn't work they probably stop using them, right?

comment What home-safety aspects should new parents consider?
@BBM: Good ones, add them as an answer.

comment What home-safety aspects should new parents consider?
I think a list could be good, but it should then be community wiki.

comment Should we switch from cloth to disposable diapers?
@user606723: It generates less trash so it's probably better for the environment, and it is cheaper, especially if you can reuse them for a second child, I hear.

comment Can a newborn feel pain in the umbilical stump?
There's no nerves in the stump, but the skin where it's attached (what later becomes the bellybutton) does have nerves. I'd expect something that causes bleeding will hurt a bit.

comment Should the nanny quit when the parents don't care about their dangerous children?
Parents that just laugh when their kids threaten to kill the nanny is IMO criminal neglect. I'd quit and call appropriate authorities.

comment Are calcium supplements helpful for a teething infant?
You can definitely injure yourself on ice, so make sure the frozen cloth is only cold, not frozen solid. I'd put it in a cold fridge instead.

comment Are calcium supplements helpful for a teething infant?
In Poland there is something called "Bobodent" which you can rub on the gums to help relieve the teething pains. It turns out to contain extract of Chamomille (anti-inflammatory it seems), Thymol (anti-bacterial) and Lidocaine (pain-killer/itching-relief). It's awesome! See if something similar is available in your country.

comment How do we get our toddler to gain weight?
When the question was posed she had basically been at 10kg for 4 months, and she stayed there for a month longer, but now she has started gaining again.

Well, we tried that, and it didn't work.

comment 8yo has crazy mood swings and gets mad over nothing
This could be anything from that she doesn't like school to a medical condition (especially considering she is complaining about pains). 1. Talk to her and ask why she is like this. 2. If that doesn't help, go see a professional.

comment When and how can we stop giving our toddler formula in the evening?
Many kids will continue to use the bottle to help them fall asleep even though they aren't hungry.

comment Can we afford to have a baby?
Daycare is expensive, yes. But for the most part, it will be less expensive than what you will make working. But you should do the calculations on how much more you will earn after taxes and travel costs, and also remember that when taking the kids to a daycare with other kids, they will be sick a lot.

comment How can we make a long road trip pleasant for a toddler and the parents?
Btw: I just two weeks ago saw a truck swerving from side to side because the driver was falling asleep. Night driving may work for some people, but as a general recommendation I find it dangerous.

comment How can we make a long road trip pleasant for a toddler and the parents?
I'm distracting our daughter not by DVD, but by putting my camera on slideshow. Works just a well, but maybe it counts as TV. :-)

I think your plan is a good one. Good luck. And enjoy your sleeplessness. :)

comment Do you use number of weeks or day of the month to determine an infant's birthday?
Although you are correct about the Leap Day, I don't think anyone in the whole world cares and has the 26th as the birthday of somebody born the 27th in a leap year. Or for that matter the other way around. :-) If you are born on the leap day (the 24th) you'll have the birthday, shockingly, on the 24th. ;)
