comment What to do about 1 year old boy who keeps pulling hard at his penis and scrotum?
Came across this today... Why disbelieve them the answer asks? If ours were anything to go by then it's more 'why engage with them at all' since without exception (and in more than one region) we dealt with the kind of feckless numbskulls whose ability to signal their presence at our front door (which has both a knocker and a doorbell) was outdone by a spotty 17-year-old oik from Pizza Hut... more than once. I've heard there are good HV's but my sampling of the dozen or more I've dealt with to date does not support that assertion.

comment 3 months old not gaining weight well from exclusive breastfeeding
This answer matches our experience - this still gives the benefits of breastfeeding and it gives mum a bit more resting time to improve the quality of her milk, which is important too - if it's just colostrum rather than hindmilk then you're not feeding your baby, it's the equivalent of drinks. Even in countries with high levels of breastfeeding, many of them count breastfeeding supplemented by formula to still be breastfeeding.

Same experience here - my 3 year-old considers sleep entirely optional.

comment Bank Accounts for Allowance
It may be useful if you post your region, StackExchange is a global site. For example here (UK) pretty much all banks offer children's accounts for free with pretty much all the features you're looking for.

comment Could I have damaged my unborn baby in the womb?
@corsiKa - I disagree. Those paragraphs illustrate the source of underlying anxieties our Anonymous friend has and that there is a specific issue of dealing with guilt which needs to be addressed in answers - without that information it essentially becomes a question that would be closed as seeking medical advice.

comment How to teach bike riding with a balance bike
Modern way? You might want to check that assertion... I suspect it's a lot more of a traditional toy than you think.

At the moment I'm inclined to vote to close this question as 'primarily opinion based'. Please tell us what you've found and what conflicting information you'd like to resolve. More information about your situation may also be useful such as family makeup, country, cultural/religious background if appropriate.
