comment 2 year old still does not (and has never) slept through the night
Probably not worth a whole answer: But check if he needs so much sleep. It really sounds to me like he has to much of it. Take notes about how long he is awake at night and cut that time from his sleeping time. Like if he is awake 1 hour, you cut one hour from his sleeping time. See how he copes with that and if it works. Note: Testing this for two to three days isn't enough. Changing the sleep habits takes up to two weeks where you should be consistent with the new sleeping time.

comment 2 year old still does not (and has never) slept through the night
This is cruel, because the reason might be something different than attention. Not every child that doesn't sleep through wants just attention. This is an assumption. Even if it is "just" attention, there are softer strategies to the problem, which in my opinion should be tried before you consider letting your child cry until it throws up.

comment Should I stop my mother in law visiting when she doesn't respect me as the father figure?
What do you mean with "these are her words"? What are her words?

comment Paternity Leave, How much does the Father need to be home?
Just a quick opinion (not really worth an answer): It was very good that my husband stayed at home for the first month our first child was born. Because of low iron levels I had circulation problems and wasn't really able to do much for the first week. (I didn't carry my son, fearing that I might pass out). I think I was (mentally and physically) ready to handle everything after three weeks. Talk it through with your girlfriend, ask her how much support she needs. But even then it really depends on the situation after birth and you can't see that coming.

comment How old really is my child?
When it comes to developmental stages you should compare her to a 3 month old child. She doesn't develop faster just because she was born earlier.

comment How can I switch an exclusively breastfed 1-year-old to food?
Don't worry too much about it and don't put pressure on her to eat something. An otherwise healthy child will eat enough and breastmilk is highly nutricious. It is not unusual for breastfed children to start eating much later than bottlefed children and it is nothing to worry about. My son was fully breastfed the first 10 months (he refused to eat anything) and even after that it was not much he ate. Nevertheless he is very healthy. Like the others said: Provide food at every meal for her and she will get know it better by playing with it. Once she knows it, she will more likely eat it.
