comment How can I prevent my 2 year old from covering her face with a blanket when she sleeps?
We actually did try one of those sleep mask things that some people on airplanes wear - she didn't like that either. I like the idea of trying a hat though - it's definitely worth a try :)

That's a good point that helps me be a little less fearful about her sleeping with something covering her head. I think a compromise is indeed the way to go. Thanks for your answer!

We actually tried to use one of these on her when she was younger and still in a crib, and she always found a way to take it off. This would be a really good option otherwise though :)

I like the personal experience in your answer, and the part about finding something comfortable for us. Maybe we can take a trip to the store with her and find a blanket we all will be comfortable with.

comment What are some ways to get an older sibling to give a younger sibling a little space?
Great comments! I like the idea of letting her hug us instead of her little sister - we'll have to try that. Thanks!

comment Is an expensive stroller worth it?
I think it may depend on your child. For whatever reason, our first child hated the expensive stroller we had. After 5 minutes of screaming, we would pick her up out of it, and end up having to carry her and push a stroller. When she got big enough to sit up, we put in her in one of those cheap "umbrella" strollers (for $15-$20) and she loved it! It was way more portable, it still had a visor to block the sun, and we had a happy baby. That doesn't answer your question, but it's another thing to think about.

comment Is baby talk helpful or detrimental?
Here's one downside to baby talk. We had a 3 year old when we had our second baby. Kids in the 2-4 year old range pick up on everything, so our 3 year old used exaggerated baby talk when talking to our baby. It got annoying very quick, and a lot of people noticed how our 3 year old spoke to our baby. That quickly decreased the amount we "baby-talked" to our baby - not for the sake of the baby (which your question is directed at), but for the sake of the older sibling...
