comment How to get my son to sleep earlier
That seems like an almost perfect sleep schedule for a 22 month old. What specifically is the problem?

comment Is it preferable to have “sex talks” vs “all the time education”?
"The talk" may stereotypical but reality doesn't work like this at all. The kids are exposed to sex related info from many different sources (peers, school, school bus, media, internet etc.) that are beyond parents control and that must be properly managed by the parent continuously. The approach of condensing to a single "talk" is just really dumb.

comment How do we prepare for a long car journey with a 2 month old?
"A 2 month old usually needs constant care and stimuli": That's a somewhat questionable statement and certainly doesn't jive with my personal experience. In fact I would consider it potentially detrimental to provide a 2 month old with constant stimulus.

comment My wife is pregnant again, does she need to stop breastfeeding our son?
In our case it just self regulated. My wife continued breastfeeding #1 about half way through the pregnancy with #2. Then it just stopped on it's own and all parties were happy. Mother and baby have a fair bit of self protection and evolutionary wisdom build in.

comment How to deal with the infant who has got an eyelash in the eye?
Good point. Obviously you start things easy and escalate slowly as necessary. Fortunately this one was a big water fan so even heavy splashing was tolerable. He went on to become the captain of the swim team and missed the state championship in the 100 yard butterfly by 1/100 of a second, so I think it's safe to assume that no large permanent psychological damage was done :-)
