comment How to promote individual play for a toddler?
+1 especially for the "give him stuff to do." It doesn't just apply to helping with the newborn, either. My 2yo helps with the dishes and laundry.

Additionally, she can read the books out loud, which can help improve speaking.

comment 5 month old won't fall asleep because she always turns herself onto her stomach
@milesmeow - Can she lift her head up? Usually, going from back to front is harder than front to back. The general key, though, is being able to lift enough to turn her head while on her stomach.

comment Baby gift suggestion for third boy?
+1 though I'd probably favor the more generic gift cards (like the Visa or AmEx cards) that are good for a number of different places, unless you know they shop at a particular store. That way, they can use the card at their preferred store, instead of at the one the giver chose.

comment Is there any scientific evidence in favor of co-sleeping with children?
Beofett - Not offhand, sorry. He does have connections with Harvard Medical School and the University of California, so if you have access to academic journals and the like, you might have luck finding the original studies there.

comment What is the best way to respond if my child is picked on by other children?
+1 for the self defense, standing by the child through a suspension, and acknowledging that tattling doesn't accomplish much in the long run (and often just makes it worse).

comment Do you use number of weeks or day of the month to determine an infant's birthday?
"Then you need to know that the 29th is not actually the leap day, the 25th is!" ?? Can you provide some more info on that? I find it especially interesting, because my mom's birthday is the 25th.

comment What should I do when my toddler climbs out of her crib at night to play?
@TorenGB - Having only enough rooms for the standard stuff (ie - no extra rooms to dedicate to a playroom) myself, I fully understand not having the extra rooms to dedicate, hence the suggestion to make another room dual-use. However, making a room, such as a living room dual use, even if it does risk cluttering up, is, in my opinion, part of the sacrifices that need to be made as a parent, just as the sleepless nights of sleep training are. As for the clutter, that's what toyboxes are for, as well as designated spaces within rooms.

To add to the meetup thing, Meetup.com is a great place to find meetups, as well.
