Masturbation: Grinding is a type of masturbation. Only advice would be that she needs to be instructed she should limit grinding only in private place.

How can I wean my daughter off the bottle?

If she is ready...: ...Take the bottle away. If she is physically capable of eating off a spoon or drinking from a cup, she will do so when hungry or thirsty enough. But then, be sure you really need to wean right now.

Talk to your doctor: Durable power of attorney is a legally binding document. However it should only be active if you have become incompetent to make decisions for yourself. Talk with your primary care physician, privately.

Weakness of windpipe: Malacia is weakness of a portion of the airway (trachea is the first portion of the airway and bronchomalacia is weakness of airways further down in the lungs). It can occur when someone is born premature, after a bad infection or after a tracheostomy. Usually wheezing in the upper airway with shortness of breath is common. Breathing tests can help suggest it is present / other tests often need.

Doctor can evaluate: Everybody puts out sweat and oils onto their skin. Sweat has salt & ammonia (like urine does), plus some other chemicals. Chemicals on the skin will react to metals & metallic compounds. Metals are everywhere: jewelry, doorknobs, spoons, bikes, nails, chains, playgrounds, etc... Metallic compounds may be in: cosmetics, soaps, lotions, antiperspirants, shampoo, etc... A doctor can evaluate further.
