Answers:

No. Only the person who paid over half the cost of keeping up the household is head of household. The other person is not. If you each paid exactly half, then neither of you is head of household.

The daughter's parent who lives with the daughter can claim the daughter. The other parent of the baby can claim the baby. In this way, you can each claim 1 kid. (However, you can't do it the other way around: the daughter being claimed by the person who is not the daughter's parent is not acceptable.)

Two people in the same household cannot claim HOH.

You need to work it out both ways. One, one of you files as HOH with three dependents, either of you and the two kids. The other files single and states that they are a dependent on another filer's return. Whichever of you does that loses the $4,050 dependent exemption. You then see what your combined refunds are and compare that to what your combined refunds would be if you both file single, claiming yourselves, and each taking one child or one of you taking both.

Then, see what works out better. Don't forget to take into account the child tax credit and EITC, if they apply.

IRS does not like to allow two heads of household at the same address, altho I know that it has been done

You cannot both be HoH. HoH requires you pay over half the expenses of the home for the year, and two people cannot mathematically do that. You can each claim one kid, yes.

NO one of you can claim the child as dependent.

You said you had "a" baby. That's ONE baby. How can you both claim 1 kid? You don't have two kids. You cannot both claim half a kid either.

There can be only one head of household per household.

NO. To be HoH you have to show you provided MORE than half of the cost of maIntaining the household. It's impossible for two people to each provide MORE than half. You can each claim one kid though

I'm no
