comment How can we make our newborn accept the bottle?
FWIW, this solved it self when she was 5.5 months. She realized it was ok and then I could do it. Sometimes, there's no point in fighting nature (a.k.a. one very strong-willed, now 2.8 years old, small person). ;)

comment My 5 year- old daughter is constantly defiant!
+1 for options. This gives your child some sense of control over her life, trivial as.it may seem. This "trick" works on most ages.

comment Pros and cons of C section (Cesarean) delivery?
Emergency c -sections are usually harder to recover from, due to a different speed vs carefulness tradeoff in how the procedure is done. I.e., if you're in a hurry, it's better to save both lives than having the mother recover faster, should she make it.

comment Why will my baby sleep easily at night, but not nap during the day?
Fun fact: I have a friend who needed the vacuum cleaner in her room in order to fall asleep when she was little. They ended up recording the sound on tape to save wear-and-tear and eletricity . ;)

Thanks for the tips. Will try different nipple size. Feeding out of a cup has never worked for us before, as she's much to lively (and temperemental) to cooperate, but it's probably worth a try, esp if I can try when she's calm and happy.

comment How do you ensure proper nutrition for a child in a vegetarian or vegan household?
+1 for professional advice. In Sweden, it's strongly recommended against vegan diets for very young children, by the hospitals. I suppose you can do it, but you don't want to get it wrong.

comment Why does my infant wake crying the instant we put him in his bed?
I suppose pitch sensitivity may also due to the fact that their neck muscles aren't fully developed, so sudden movements might be dangerous. Hence they are extra sensitive in order to train us parents to be careful. :)
