has your babies started flipping?
my gal is already 3.5 months old but still very lazy and bulky.
think she weigh 8.1 kg now. is she too bulky?
how to make her learn flip ?
nope..she is super strong now, able to move from one side of the cot to the other side almost 90 degree turn using her feet lifting her up...
btw, she's only 2mths 3wks old..weighs about 5.4kg now...
My boy havent flip yet. But nowadays he got more movement, even change his sleeping position now. At night sleep straight, in the morning he is already sleep the other way already.
Ya, he can support his neck/head better now. I tried to put him rest on his tummy, and he can hold his neck up for longer while. But he doesnt like it!
My baby is super addictive to pacificer. Or else he will start to suck his fingers. Think pacificer will be easier to quit than fingers.
My gal also have not flipped yet... i tink not so fast ... my son flipped when 3.5mth old so my girl still got 3 weeks to got.. slowly i tink is matter of time nia...
Poor little girl caught virus from the brother ytd fever till 38.6degree
ya..some babies slower...hehehe
For what i know, before you put your baby to the caregiver, it is better that you are presence with them in another environment with the caregiver. They have to get used to the caregiver and the place before you slowly disappeared. At least we are with them in a new environment for awhile before leaving them totally.
i made the mistake of leaving my son to my sis in law without letting him get used to the caregiver and environment and therefore he only drink 30 - 40ml each feed. he wants to be carry and whenever my sis in law puts him down, he will start his "cranky" business..
Thank God he adapt to it after 1 week. Now he gets better..
i think my son will learn to flip quite fast, this is what most people say.. he is quite strong. when he is less than one month, pediatrician already say his neck is quite strong.
changing diapers for him can be a chanellege cos he likes to "kick" himself upwards and after few kicks he is out of the changing mat. he is quite dangerous if leave him on the bed cos i worried he kicks himself out of the bed.. hahaha..
well once our babies know how to flip, we will begin our next sets of worries..
Yah, CNY is coming. 1st time carrying baby to celebrate new year. Must be very exciting! Can take a break too, there must be alot of relatives who can "volunteer" to carry him, play with him. Then we can have some breaktime. haha.
Ya I agree. I put my baby sleep beside me during the afternoon. Once I step out of the bed, he wakes up. Then I got to lie down and pat him sleep again!
dont worry too much.. i believe sometimes we dont have much choice on it.
i agree with you.. cny coming and being a 1st time mum, i am excited to go around house visiting with my son. it is a good time to take a break..
ya. hopefully...in 2-3yrs time then i will go for 2nd one.
