comment How to child-proof my home for a toddler?
This question is very similar to "What home-safety aspects should new parents consider?" which is a SE community wiki. You will find great suggestions under that question. Since this question is so similar it may need to be closed as a duplication.

FYI:The Nuk bottle is the same as the Gerber bottle. I thought it might help to make this clarification if searching for this item.

comment Are vitamin supplements necessary for newborns?
@WilliamGrobman Breastfed babies do deplete their supply of iron at around 6 months of age and iron supplements are usually introduced then if needed. However, my response was limited by the question about newborns. :)

comment What should parents consider when selecting a pacifier?
The Journal of the American Dental Association reports that children who continue to use a pacifier past age 2 increased their risk of developing protruding front teeth and an improper bite, which can affect speech production. Here is the associated link.

comment How can we discipline our toddler?
@BBM Positioning is key. If dealing with a biter or head banger, I step behind the child holding their arms firmly by their side with my arms fully extended to keep distance and avoid kicking or head banging. If older, I cross their arms at wrist behind their back at waist level. This gives me leverage and protection and keeps them safe too until they calm and recover.
