comment How do I teach my child to speak in sentences?
I'd agree that leading by example is a great start, but I wouldn't worry too much about age appropriate sentences - My 2 year old actually copies my wife exactly sometimes and says "Would you hand me the peas please, darling?" to me!

comment What is the reason for covering infants during transport?
+1 for "denying him a view of where he is and what's going on around him." So important in early years.

@WernerCD I thought the same, but I guess a sugar habit is still worth avoiding ;)

This approach (which we also found very effective) is also commonly known as 'Controlled Crying'.

comment When should I transition a 2 year old toddler from the cot to a bed?
@HedgeMage, I disagree. In our case at least the gate was just insurance against sleep walking in the first few weeks, it soon came off completely. If he's still not staying in bed after that point then I do agree you have a larger issue.
