We also have a tidy or short rule. Although my definition if tidy is fairly broad :-) DD1 has fine hair and was getting dreadlock-type patches at the back at one stage. We used detangling spray but...

I would not *encourage* your baby to go straight to walking. Just let him explore and do things at his own pace. If he's only just started sitting he may naturally start crawling when he is sitting...

1. You do count your fingers as well as the space between them. Your obstetrician probably meant that your internal os was still closed. And, you're right, the external is was probably always a...
