comment When and how can we stop giving our toddler formula in the evening?
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.

revised Can I figure out what my baby wants by the sound it makes when it cries?
I have trimmed the text because the focus of the question is not the specific theory but rather the general idea.

comment How do I transition a toddler to foods with texture?
Aarthi's list of small and soft foods is excellent. We do that too and it works well. By letting the child grab his food, he becomes familiar with the texture in his hands before it's in his mouth (although it does get messy sometimes).

@Lennart That depends on when the child had dinner. Our son gets his dinner at least an hour before the bottle, often two hours before, so he might well develop new hunger before breakfast. It's worth taking into account at least, even though I agree that over time the bottle becomes more of a mind habit than a meal.

+1 for the idea of diplomacy. However I would be very careful with the salt trick even though the amount of salt is probably no concern in itself. But it might have adverse side-effects, like not liking regular/"adult" food based on this experience, when that food has a discernible salty taste.
