  • My daughter is 2 years, 3 months and I believe she is left handed, but sometimes she uses right hand still. She kinda switches back and forth, so we still don't know yet.

  • I think my pedi said 3 years old. When they start to do intense things like coloring or writing etc. My son is 15 months and he has always used his left hand to eat, and throw but he uses his right hand to scribble..lol So who knows what he will be :)
