comment Is it okay for both parents to be asleep at the same time?
@Kenny I think you're mistaken. I just looked through that NPR article and the way I read it is that "unsafe sleep practices" means putting teddy-bears, pillows and blankets in the baby's crib, all of which pose suffocation risks. It has nothing to do with, as you seem to indicate, the parents' own sleep practices.

+1 for a good suggestion. In hindsight defiance wasn't the issue, so I can't truthfully accept your answer - sorry!

I like the idea of parental diplomacy although that's easier when the child is older (nearly 5yo compared to under 2yo).

comment Is baby talk helpful or detrimental?
+1 for staying one step ahead of the baby's skills. When you say research indicates... could you please add a link or a reference so it doesn't look like an empty phrase?

comment Should I stop my infant from sucking his thumb?
I have reviewed the existing questions and tagged some of them with thumb-sucking. The closest thread I found deals with how to stop thumb-sucking at night.

"3." is off-topic for this site. The first two are good.
