Aquaphor also heals pretty well. I've used it and lanolin interchangeably for noses.

@Chrys - actually that pose is really dangerous to try and do without a spotter.

comment What can my girlfriend do for her daughter?
I know in my area there is an organization that offers free legal consultations with a lawyer. One of my friends is a lawyer who participates. They offer time slots during one Saturday a month or something like that. You should see if your girlfriend qualifies. Then she can speak to someone about custody issues who knows.

comment Can a 17-month old really appreciate humour/irony?
@RobertCartaino - I can delete my comment, but as it was pure speculation I'm not sure "answer" is warranted.

comment My toddler has started “lying”
I can never figure out if my 18 month old is "lying" yet. When asked if she has a dirty diaper she usually says "no" when she does and "yes" when she does not. I'm not sure if she just doesn't know what I'm asking or if she's playing games.

comment Can a 17-month old really appreciate humour/irony?
It might have something to do with power dynamics. According to Happiest Toddler on the Block toddlers spend a lot of time feeling like the weakest and the smallest, so any time they get to feel bigger and better than someone/something they love it. Also Happiest Toddler recommends role play with dolls as a way of positive enforcement of rules, so if you have the dolly eventually give in nicely to her teeth brushing you might find it has a good effect on your daughter.
