So a couple of questions
1) Has your little one started to show a dominant hand yet?
2) are you still using baby bath/ hair products?
Day care came to me today and said they strongly suspect Ronin is a lefty, we have thought he may be on and off for awhile, but when they showed me the pictures from their observations the past few weeks he is using his left hand everytime. They also said it explains why he sometimes struggles with his spoon a bit. They seem pretty certain he is a lefty but I wonder if any of it has to do with when he dislocated his wrist because I think it was his right wrist he dislocated.
Regarding bath stuff we are using adult shampoo and conditioner now, but still on baby soap because I am still working through stuff given as gifts when Ronin was born.
Olivia is still using both hands so can't tell yet. DS is right-handed I'm almost positive.
DS is so sensitive to products we are still using a baby non perfume bath products and probably will for years. *sigh*

DD is a righty most of the time. Very rarely does she use her left.
We still use Aveeno baby wash because of her eczema as well. But it works good and cleans her up good so I don't mind.
Aiden is showing a preference to his right hand. He uses crayons, markers, utensils, etc with his right hand but occasionally he'll use his left hand just to confuse me.
We are still using baby shampoo. We've been using Burt's Bees shampoo/body wash and I have no plans to change from that. We still have another 3 unopened bottles. Ha. He doesn't have enough hair (what he has is super thin) to really need anything more. I like being able to take a wash cloth, put some of the burt's bees stuff on it, and do his hair and then his body. Super fast and easy. Kid likes baths, but does not like me cleaning him. lol

I used to think Addy was a lefty because for a very long time she showed a STRONG preference for her left hand, but lately I think she's been using both and favoring her right so now I'm not so sure. I had actually stopped paying attention, but now I'm going to check it out again We don't have any lefties in our family that I know of either, but sometimes it's hard to tell with older folks because parents and schools used to actively train kids out of it and force them to learn to use their right hand. So it's possible that, say, a grandparent could have been born a lefty but never presented that way as an adult.
I use my shampoo and conditioner on Addy because it's pretty gentle and fragrance free anyway, but she has her own body wash. Mainly so I can use it as bubble bath, though, because DH and I use natural bar soap.
Eating with left hand. Always has done. But playing/drawing is always right hand. So I don't know There are a lot of lefties in our family (all female though) so I wouldn't be surprised
And yes, we are still using baby products on him. I still use baby products on DS1 I still have baby shampoo that people bought for us before DS1 was born. And I've given some away. It's like a never ending supply of baby shampoo!!
