comment How do we stop our daughter rolling over and waking herself up?
I have read that attempting to sleep train your child prior to six months of age isn't especially healthy for the child as prior to that most children will still require a middle of the night feeding.

comment What works to get a distracted nurser to eat during the day?
My niece wasn't diagnosed with reflux until she was about your daughter's age and she was a HUGE spitter-upper, but she also didn't appear to be in pain. In fact, she was a very happy baby. My daughter, OTOH, was a silent spitter and was pretty miserable. It seems like most peds will at least attempt reflux meds if the parents seem to indicate they think their child is having problems with AR to see if it alleviates the symptoms. Might be worth a second opinion. She's more active now and burning more calories so she might be a little hungrier--and let's not even talk about growth spurts.

I can't get enough of my friends on G+ to make it worth my while, but my husband seems to be of your opinion. :-D

comment When should kids get a cellphone?
I know parents who check their kids phones nightly (text messages, phone calls) etc. And these are high schoolers! Obviously, text messages can be deleted, but if a kid knows that you're looking and paying attention, maybe that will give them pause.

comment When should kids get a cellphone?
OMG! Probably a couple hours a day total because I have the APP on my SMARTPHONE! If I'm 31 years old and spend that much time on FB everyday, there's no hope for teenagers.

+1 for checking a phone out like a librarian for only certain occasions. I think this is great way to ease your kid into the responsibility of a cell phone.

comment At what age should a child be able to dress herself?
My son could handle pants sometime in his 3rd year, and shoes right before his 4th birthday. He didn't really master shirts, shoes, and the correct orientation of underwear until later in his 4th year.

comment How do I teach my child the virtue of not quitting?
You might just try typing "smart vs hard-work study" into a search engine and see what comes up. That's the phrase I used.

comment My 5 year- old daughter is constantly defiant!
+1 for "When she's calm, explain, in simple language, the consequences of bad behavior". As adults we want to explain things right that very minute, but kids need time to calm down before explaining anything is effective. And then the explanation needs to be simple. Their attention span is not long enough to tolerate much.

comment Installing car seat base…how tight is good enough?
Towels work, but pool noodles cut to fit work even better. They don't compress over time the way that towels do.
