My daughter seems to use her right hand sometimes and her left at others. I don't think she has one hand designated for certain tasks or anything (like I've seen her use both hands interchangeably to eat or pick up toys). I don't think she is ambidextrous either. Not sure whether this comes into play at all, but she is cognitively and linguistically advanced according to evaluations, right on target physically, and her disposition is very happy and content (and she focuses very well).
Is there a simple test I could conduct to determine which hand is dominant or whether she is ambidextrous? She has a double crown, too, and I've heard that's associated with left-handed or even ambidextrous children (but not sure whether that's relevant either).

It is usually genetic based, if both parents are right handed there is 50% chance baby will be too.
