comment What are the pros and cons of giving nutritional food supplements?
Given you are from India, do you have a strict vegetarian diet? Most people can get everything they need from a healthy diet but vegetarians can have a harder job, especially if their kids do not eat well.

comment How old does a child have to be to start using a pacifier?
FYI: My now 3.5yo son never wanted one and never had one. He never sucked his thumb either. That's one bullet we dodged.

comment When should a child transition through the different car seats, to none, and to the front seat?
The age a child can move to the front seat can also be governed by local laws. In Australia, the child must be at least 12. My 10 year old daughter is the same height as my wife but is stuck in the back seat for another two years.

comment What aspects should we consider when choosing a name for our child?
@Malachi - gotta agree with JBRWilkinson on this - my daughter gets very angry when people do not spell or pronounce her name correctly.

comment What aspects should we consider when choosing a name for our child?
@Christopher Bibbs - popular names come and go. To me, it means the name is not intrinsically great but, rather, it just a passing phase. I'd prefer a name that stands on it's own. "Jack", "Emily", 'Zoe", "Olivia" are not bad but (to me) are less special when your child of 1 of 4 in their classroom.

comment What aspects should we consider when choosing a name for our child?
@Malachi - My daughter is 10 years old - my own family can still not pronounce or spell her name correctly and hers is not that unusual a name.

comment Should we give our infant baby food to avoid feeding at night?
It is worth noting that a fresh baby has a large reserve of iron that will last until they are about 6 months old, after that the need to start taking some solids in addition to milk. Iron fortified rice cereal (as mentioned) as a good start.
