One way is to try posting some of your work here and ask for some feedback ... if you're on to that, include the shutterspeed, aperture, which programme mode, flash or w/o flash and such for easy reference ...

ASSUMING that you really do not know much about camera (not unreasonable assumption because of the all singing/dancing things called cameras today), I would suggest that you do not shoot slower than 1/250. Then see if the smallest aperture with that shutter combination is sufficient for proper exposure. If not use a higher ASA or digital equivalent.

If you do not want to bother with all the aperture,speed,ASA, why not set your camera to programme mode with a high enough ASA and allow the camera to do the rest? And get a dedicated flash to your camera and set both to programme mode.

Good luck and have fun. But do it quickly! The toddler will grow up real fast! I have some quite nice photographs of my son taken with a point and shoot, an olympus I think (before the day I became afflicted with photography. Looking back these shots were quite nice and wonderful to embarrass him during his wedding day!)
