Yes. That is what we did when we got our daughter her passport when she was 3 weeks old. No issues

Anyone of "standing" can sign it. They don't need to put their passport number on the form unless they are UK citizens.

Remember that US citizens are legally required to use a US passport when leaving/entering the US. So if you're taking your daughter outside the country, she'll need to have a US passport as well.

so when you have a UK passport and your child has a US one, can you all go to the US entry line when you arrive back in the country? or do you still have to go to the mile long queues??

Depends if they have the stamps in both queues. Otherwise, you'd have to go over to the non-EU line.

Last year my youngest daughter, then 4, (using US passport) and me (using UK passport) flew back to the UK, for a holiday/visit, into Newcastle airport. I had her stand in the EU line with me and we were told that because of her passport we had to get into the non EU line. I was also questioned more than I have ever been before, remembering I have a UK passport, I was asked where I was travelling from, did I reside here, did I have return tickets, did I have family ties in the US, was I employed in the US, in all the times I have visited over the last 9 years I have not been question going back into the UK.

On that trip I stayed for 2 weeks, then 2 weeks after I left the UK my dad passed away somewhat suddenly so I had to return, my daughter came through the EU line with me no questions asked, my hubby and oldest daughter both went through the non EU line. I guess it depends on who is working the desk on any given day.

I really hate those inconsistencies at the passport control..

Also I found the US particularly bad as the agents are often very abrupt and somehow acting like they are allmighty..
the other day my husband had a very early morning/late eve flight, gave his passport to the agent who did not remove the I94
on his way back the agent told him off and told him its his responsability to have this removed. he tried to tell him that he was tired and did not realise but the agent refused to listen.
another agent kept saying, its ok just take the I94 and tell him not to do it again... but the guy refused and made him complete a form and have it returned by post with proof of him leaving the country (surely him coming back was proof enough)
