Good morning :).

MLA citation is very straightforward and has specific rules for every kind of citation. There are many great websites out there that can help you find specific models; search the internet using keywords such as "MLA citation examples" and you will find tons.

It looks like you have a good grasp on your citation, just a few pointers. When you are citing from an author, use their last name and page number or paragraph number only. For instance, (Froude, James 330) should be formatted as (Froude 330). Now, since the Shulman citation is from an article found on a website, the inline citation for it should read (Schulman) with the last name only. As far as the (How Well Do Babies See? Eye Focusing Influences Infant Brain Development) citation, when you are working from an online article found with no author, you are right (except enclose the title in quotation marks and put the period outside the final ellipse); the same goes for the (How Well Do Babies See? Eye Focusing Influences Infant Brain Development) citation.

On your works cited page, make sure the titles of any paper-and-ink books used the titles are underlined (the site doesn't let us see or do that, so I'm not sure if you've got that). You have your alphabetical order right, make sure you are using hanging indents for those that are longer than one line.

Watch your caps:

" "What is Object Permanence?" C onjecture C orporation . 15..."

"Help your B aby E very D ay."

"Baby's F irst Y ear: Developmental M ilestones."

"Your F ive-M onth-O ld."

And your spaces:

Schulman , Lisa . Should be:
Schulman, Lisa.

These are just a few tips; I strongly suggest you find a website that you can model from, because I'm unsure as to what form all of your sources are. If you find a good site, you'll have no problem figuring out what format for each type of source. I think you've got a good handle on it, just watch the "little" things.

I hope this helps.
