Is it normal for babies to have one really dominant side? Since she started crawling, my 7mo has favored her right side. She crawls with her left leg tucked in, and moves forward by pushing off with right leg extended. She's just recently started clapping, and I've noticed that she keeps her left hand still, and claps by moving her right hand only. Kinda weird - just wondered if others have had similar experiences.

no this is not particularly normal, but it also may be nothing at all.
early side preference or asymmetry should always be pointed out to a child's medical care provider, it can be nothing but always should get looked at.
So what if I don't fit cleanly into a defined parenting style, my kids don't fit into a personality archetype either!
