comment How to keep a baby cool in summer?
A table fan. Don't point it directly at the baby, but close enough so that the air around her is circulated. Also, keep the baby hydrated with frequent feedings.

comment Stopping a toddler playing with his belly button
If you can find a soft toy that has a belly button, that he can sleep with...it might help. When the toddler is playing with his belly button, distract him by asking him to play with the toy's belly button.

comment breaking my rejection of christianity to my parents
Sure, it is their own issue. However, the OP specifically wanted advice that would avoid "divide" between him and his parents, so keeping the relationship intact is important to him. The OP can go ahead and tell his parents, and then leave it to them to deal with their own issues - but that may come at the cost of a divide. I tried to provide advice that would hopefully avoid this divide but at the same time let the OP live a sane life without parents constantly bugging him. It can be very uncomfortable if all your parents want to talk about is the lack of his belief each time he calls/visits.

comment breaking my rejection of christianity to my parents
I don't understand how that's bad parenting. Of course a religious parent finds out that their child no longer believes in God - it is going to hurt. It is going to be disturbing. It can be difficult to deal with. If the parents have never questioned their faith themselves, it'll be difficult to cope with something like that. On the other hand, if they have been through the same thing - it can be a rewarding conversation. However, based on how his parents have been pushing him on his religion, it is unlikely.

comment How to promote individual play for a toddler?
How old is your son? Are neither of the parents able to give toddler the attention? If parents can alternate between the kids, it would help the son...as someone is giving him attention.

comment Ventilation holes in matress for newborn
There are a whole lot of things that increase risk of SIDS and lack of ventilation is one of them. For example, sleeping on the belly doesn't cause SIDS but it sure as heck increases risk.

comment Do we need an electronic breast pump?
Sure, but there are also other ways for dad and baby to bond. Just holding the baby on a rocking chair provides some great skin-to-skin contact. Now for a mommy break...yes, that's a nice thought...
