Just wondered what age you can tell your little one is left handed or right handed, our DS seems to be edging towards left but sometimes does use his right hand so not sure.

With dd we could tell she was left handed by about a year to 18 months but dominance isn't really established until 4 or 5.

DD was definitely left handed by the age of 2.

With DS only when he started learning to write at about 4 (left handed preference). He would use left and right hands equally to crayon, or for eating, and still does for a lot of things, plus will hold sports equipment in his right hand.
