comment Is it OK for my 16 year old son to watch my 10 year old daughter at home alone while I'm at work?
I hope so, because I've left my younger children at home alone with a 16 year old babysitter all day. (Not their sibling)

comment My 4-year-old refers to himself as me
I hope it's normal because my daughter does it too!

comment Why does my infant wake crying the instant we put him in his bed?
I have read that there is a motion detector that triggers when a baby is lowered back first into the crib - they feel like they are falling which wakes them up. Personally I've had some success lowering our children into the crib sideways and rotating them (along the long axis per @TorbenGundtofte-Bruun's answer) at the last second. Another alternative, given that it only happens in the middle of the night, maybe the baby is simply cold. In that case, it would help to turn up the thermostat or get a safe space heater for the baby's room.

comment Is a Do-It-Yourself baby monitor a bad idea?
99.99% of parents on earth don't have a video monitor at all. A DIY monitor would be well above average.

comment Baby Girl Stretching
This sounds like a concern you should discuss with your pediatrician. That said, both our daughters did what we called a "peanut stretch" (stretching so far they were bent backwards) and survived the experience.
