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.
    There was a teacher in the classroom next to me when I was in grade 1 who did that. Any lefties in the class would be hauled up to the board and punished for being a lefty, that was only in about 1990.

    I still have a bottle of baby shampoo but Ronin had some crazy cradle cap going on that I had never been able to clear out and sort of forgot about when he had more hair so one night I got stuck into it and then washed his hair with hubby's shampoo (just cheap stuff because he shaves his hair really short) and all the cradle cap washed out. I used it for a bit longer and the cradle cap hasn't come back so we have stuck with it.

    Seriously?! Ugh. Stupid teachers.

    And if it works for his cradle cap that's fantastic! That's great you found such an easy solution for it for y'all.

    I think Lainey's a rightly. A couple days ago she was watching big sister write, and she started pretending to write. She started off with the pencil in her right hand, switched to her left, then went back to her right and then continued to use it in her right hand.

    My mom is a leftie. In the 1960's she was in a catholic school, and the nuns would hit her on the hand with a ruler if they caught her writing with her left.

    We have to use shampoo that is no fragrance, or she breaks out. She does have some cradle cap returning right now, I'm blaming her father for giving her his scalp, and the weather for getting colder.

    HA! After writing that Simon uses mostly his right, he ate his entire meal with his left hand yesterday! Crazy kid!

    Isabelle pretty much always uses her right hand to feed herself so I think she's right handed. We are still using baby bath products, I still have tons of stuff left from when she was born that we haven't used up yet.

    Lyla sometimes seems to show left hand dominance, but then other times she does things with her right. She eats with her left hand in the mornings when I give her a bowl of cereal, but tonight she was using her right hand to stab her noodles at dinner.

    Still using baby product mostly because of Kole, but also because I've found that Lyla tends to be a bit sensitive.

    Aiden was sensitive to J&J and Aveno products and I've been afraid to try other stuff on him. I've been buying his shampoo/body wash stuff pretty much since he was a month old just because everything that people gave us he was sensitive to! I had gotten one little Burt's Bees sample basket from a friend and it didn't bother him in the least bit so I've been afraid to change ever since!

    We can't do J&J either Jackie. Makes DS's eczema flare up.

    I can use pretty much whatever on Simon's skin. He's never really had any rashes either. The only time he got a big diaper rash was when I was still bfing and was on a soy protein kick. So I guess he's sensitive to soy. But any soaps or lotions he is fine with. He often steals my lotion and puts it on (he's weird and loves lotion) and never has any reactions. He's actually eaten my lotion too.

    Yeah, Addy's skin sensitivities seem to be pretty much limited to food, not products.

    I haven't been very good about remembering to pay attention, but every time I have she's been eating with a different hand, so I guess I'd have to say it's still unclear!
