comment Is it dangerous to microwave formula if I swirl the bottle and test the temperature afterwards?
You can also let it stand for a minute to help distribute heat. We did this with our kids, but never made the formula more than warm, and over time, made it less warm until we were actually serving it cold. There is nothing to say it has to be warm - it is transitioning from breast that makes it desirable for it to be warm.

comment How to teach a child to swallow pills?
Orange Tic Tacs. Worked a champ with my kids. They aren't afraid to practice, because there is no downside if they don't get it for a few tries.

comment How can I address toddler's fear of water over her face?
We did this too. We also sometimes encouraged our child to hold a wash cloth over his face (gives him control) during hair washing or rinsing. Eventually we taught what we called "the swimmer's wipe), to use his own had to wipe away excess water from his face (again, putting control in his hands).
