comment Is it really that bad to get water in an infant's ear?
No, I'd have to disagree. Baby's ears cope fine with water. What matters is cleaning and drying their ears. Adding vaseline or cotton into the ears is not recommended as it gives a greater risk of injury or infection, as @bobobobo pointed out.

@monsto - that is incorrect. water + baby's ear does not equal infection. It can raise the risk of infection, that is all.

comment How did you maintain good contact when your child was far away?
So I reckon my final paragraph, plus all of Torben's excellent answer, will help you out. Make sure you let him feel comfortable calling you for anything, at any time. If you can set up a regular slot, then do that, but always be there.

comment For a long flight, would freezing breast milk simplify transporting it?
Yeah - happened in various countries in Europe and the US. I agree it is utterly moronic.

many airlines and airports now allow flying with baby food products including milk, but may ask you to prove it is real by tasting it

comment My 12 year old has been blowing off homework, and now is writing on his clothes! Is this normal?
I really like the second half of your answer, but my experience of having the things I loved withheld until I did the other things had an opposite effect on me as that you describe. It motivated me to prove I could get them back, and I did. I really appreciated that from my parents - although at the time I was a bit stroppy because I was a teenager :-)

comment What's a good choice for a baby's first sign in sign language?
We found more and milk were the two that were understood fastest, and were most useful to us prior to the kids being able to speak.
