comment Will getting child care from a non-native English speaker impact my child's language development?
I have never heard of bilingualism helping a child's general development, but bilingualism may help a child's language development in the sense that the child better learns to distinguish sound patterns etc. (because different languages have different vocalizations, intonations, and melodies). It may also hinder the language development somewhat, simply because there's so much more to learn and keeping the languages separated is a mental overhead. The net sum is positive though.

comment Is crib use (mostly) universal?
That's a fun way of putting it :-) and while I agree about gravity, I find it easier to roll face-down then lift myself onto all fours, rather than doing crunches on a soft bed to get up. Maybe I'm different.

My son does this too! Like Swati's jhoola, I'm sure babies like it cramped when they need comfort. That's also why we hug the way we do - it's comforting.

Some people dislike fruit juice because of the sugars and acids, but diluted fruit teas are a good alternative.

comment When changing diapers, how soon should we put the new diaper on?
I think your answer is missing the point? The question revolves around whether to put a diaper on when the skin is still moist. You didn't answer that, but I will remove my downvote if you edit your answer to address this.

comment What safety gate can I use at the top of my stairs?
Fair enough. I was trying to address that with need only very little width... but I see your point. Let me see if I can make a photo of how our gates are mounted, it might help.

Haha, true. Then I'll need to figure out how to get him off the robots. I'll post back then to ask about that :-)

@HedgeMage an R/C toy is a fun idea! I know what I'd buy... but do you have a suggestion that would be suitable for a 20-month-old?
