comment What are the differences between a child who was born vaginally versus via caesarean section?
I am wondering if the stats for babies born c-section being less resilient and not as smart take into account the problems during the birth that required a c-section might have caused the problems, not the c-section itself.

comment What to do when the pinky is the only way to soothe a newborn?
Just tonight I mentioned to my cousin that I only ever heard "Binky" (Binkie) used in Utah, so I had to see where you were from... UTAH!! hahah!! ANYWAY: Neither of my kids liked pacifiers or fingers, but they did do really well with me patting their chest for a few minutes.

comment Should my wife pump after feeding to “top her off?”
FYI: My wife pumped and breast fed our 2 kids but dried up after a few weeks both times. My mom breast fed all 4 of us until we were blue in the face and still had more than we needed and didn't use pumps. Women are different, and if she ends up not producing enough even if you pump, just know that sometimes you just can't force it. Just a heads up, I don't want you guys to think you did something wrong.

comment How can one tell if an infant is developmentally advanced?
My son didnt start walking until he was almost 12 months, didn't start talking until a couple months after "normal" children were talking. He is now 12 and I am constantly told how much more advanced he is in sports than other kids from current and former NFL players, he is doing BMX tricks that I couldn't do until I was 18 (I rode in the X-Games), he wins national awards for academics. I wasn't worried that he started slow and you shouldn't jump the gun placing children in private "gifted" schools, but definitely encourage his desire to learn!
