Very useful to differentiate between labour contractions and "practice" (Braxton-Hicks) contractions.

comment How to introduce foods to my little girl?
@DaveClarke - our daughter did the same, though after refusing (and us taking the food away since she didn't want it), she'd get even more upset because she didn't have the food anymore! I imagine her thought process as something like "So that's what 'No' means..."

comment How can 7-year old defend himself when toddler is hitting?
Absolutely: "If another's parenting style allows their child to hurt mine, then, as a matter of defending my child, I will step in immediately and stop any further damage."

+1 "Her daughter doesn't like having her hand restrained? Does she think perhaps your son enjoys being hit?"

comment How can 7-year old defend himself when toddler is hitting?
I'm sorry, but I lost it when I got to "my friend isn't happy with this as she doesn't want people to touch her child". This is a ridiculous double standard (the toddler is allowed to hit, but your son isn't allowed to stop her?) Your son is absolutely, amazingly understanding and patient to have put up with this treatment from her and not lashed out.

comment When should a toddler stop having problems with personal pronouns?
Agree, it changes all the time. My now 5 yr old has decided he likes referring to himself in the 3rd person (like The Rock, even though he's never seen him)
