Saved from the web by a job in industry. Coding GUI for computer-aided railway realignment machinery.

At last a job where I have time to do stuff properly and don't have to worry about loads of unfixed bugs coming back to haunt me.

comment Why won't our infant stop crying when in the car seat?
Yup, we had the same problem when our daughter was a bit older - she hated the car until she got a seat where she could see out the window. (Though I doubt that is the problem at the moment). Though, possibly being able to see the parents in the front would be reassuring too. Maybe she doesn't like the noise of the car?

comment Is the “1 2 3 Magic” strategy for disciplining effective?
+1 for the 1.5 year-old. Our 3 year-old counts at us when we don't do what she wants :)

comment How long is breastfeeding effective and worthwhile?
@Javid, and why standardise by gestation time? Why not standardise by "when they can get up, walk around and forage on their own"?

comment How do you feed a picky eater?
I don't know that I'd go as far as ron M. below, but letting them actually get hungry does help. If you're not careful, you can fall into a vicious cycle of 'fussy at mealtime, hungry after, gets a snack, not hungry at mealtime'.

comment How should a stepfather respond to “You are not my Father!”?
Yup, nothing to stop a biological child saying "I wish you weren't my father", which probably hurts just as much (if not more)...

comment Should we discourage our toddler from taking sippy cups to bed?
+1 for milk + teeth problems, my first thought on reading the question. And as you say, it doesn't matter whether the cup stays in his mouth or not. Same logic as for eating a sweet/candy before bedtime.
