yes dd, not really we noticed about 2 when she started writing/drawing. We dont have to do anything special but it makes me crazy to look at her write.

My son is 2 now and I knew since he was about 6 months old and really started doing everything with his left hand. So far I havent had to change anything but it could change when he starts school or starts writing for that matter as I am right handed.

Yes my oldest son is. I noticed about 2 when he started using a spoon and fork. He hasn't had any problems because of it. No, nothing special needed. Now we can't have him sit close to others while eating or writing because they bump each other. My daughter and other son are right handed.

 I am! The only things my mom did different was buy me left handed scissors and if we went out to eat my mom sat next to me because she's left handed too. Otherwise nothing much was a problem!

I am a leftie & so are 2 of my kids. Around 2-3yrs it was pretty obvious. My oldest is ambidextrous, didn't really figure that out till he was in kinder.  We haven't had to do anything different, that I am aware of.

One of my three is left handed. We noticed when she was about 6 or 7 months that she was using her left hand to grab at things. She is now 5 years old.

I am left handed and the only two things that have ever been a problem has been using binders because of the rings (I simply just took the paper out of the binder while using it) and in school they only ever had right handed gym equipment (hockey sticks, etc)

Its no big deal.

My son is left handed. We noticed he favored his left hand very early on...maybe around 8 or 9 months we noticed he grabbed for things with his left, held his bottle with his left, etc...he is 13 now, and has no problems except for awful penmanship lol
