comment How can we discipline our toddler?
@TorbenGundtofte-Bruun: great if it worked for you. I recognized a lot of our son in your question: won't play alone, needs permanently someone near him (until he was 3). Our son is nearly 4, and if we bring him in his room for a timeout, he will hit and bite us and try to get out again. We do not hit or bite him, so we expect him not to do that either... that makes things difficult. And he gets very angry in this situation, so any kind and loving explanation is ignored and he'll try to hurt us as much as he can.

I think containers ares so interesting, as it enables "interaction" between things. You can put them in and out, transport them - also lorries or other "carrying" vehicles are interesting, as the child can load something in, bring it somewhere else and load if off there...

I think you' have to define "favorite toy" a little more. Any new toy is a favorite toy (at least for some time) :-) Do you mean long-time favorite toys?

comment How can my toddler learn to stay under the blanket at night?
@WilliamGrobman: anyway it's good that you were indicating the possible misunderstanding. Your "Gerber gowns" seem to be open at the lower end. The sleeping bags are closed all around and normally also have straps over the shoulders not to get lost at night (some even have sleeves, especially the warmer ones).

@WilliamGrobman: if I'm referring to sleeping bags (we're in Europe here), then I'd definitely talking about those like in Sarato's comment and they are worn in bed as a replacement for the blanket which gets easily lost at night during moving/turning/.... I hope you don't think our children have to sleep on a camping mat on the floor or in a tent in the garden ;-)

interesting question! We're having the same problem, but our son (nearly 4 years, about 100 cm tall) still has sleeping bags, but it now gets more difficult to find them large enough. How tall is your son?

comment Why would my 9 week old refuse to nurse from breast?
@MarieHendrix: I'm happy if I finally could add some useful content. However in the described case of Kyle Sevenoaks I assume that Castillo-Morales would not help, or would it?

comment Why would my 9 week old refuse to nurse from breast?
@MarieHendrix, at KyleSevenoaks: I've edited my post and added the name of the bottles (finally found them) - however (sorry), I'm not sure if they might be also helpful in your case. At least it should be more difficult for the baby to get the milk out of them than "normal" standard bottles. Maybe Marie Hendrix knows better?

@KyleSevenoaks: I'm sorry, if my experience is not useful for you. The intereting part could be (as Marie mentioned) that there are bottles which are more similar to natural breastfeeding - unfortunately I don't remember their name at the moment.

comment How long can a 3-month-old go without eating?
@luckiestMom: your nickname says it all! It took our son more than 13 months until he could sleep through a whole night. So enjoy your sleep. // at Torben: not only mothers envy her for that, there's also sleepless fathers. ;-)
