I am offering fun hands on lessons in my place at Sin Ming. Just fun educational activities but your child will DEFINITELY learn something! You will even see results. I help prepare children for Primary 1 but its all done in a fun way so that your child looks forward to these sessions with me. Sessions can be customised to what you would like. Eg. focus on Phonics, maths, grammar, etc.
I do group teaching too so if you have any friends who have kids of the same age, come together so its even more fun!

Hi all! I am turning 34 and am a stay-at-home first time mom to a baby boy who is 4 months old in just a few days! Would love to share and hear experiences from other mommies out there. I am exclusively breastfeeding my baby and hopes to feed beyond 6 months, probably even beyond 1 year old! I have been facing a challenge, my baby doesn't sleeps "peacefully" at night. I've tried all possible ways like tiring him or shortening his nap before bedtime. He is on time for bed every night, sleeps before 10pm and he will wake up for feed between 1 to 2am and sleeps till 7am another feed. Meaning he has weaned off night feeds but my challenge is that he will be lightly awake every hour to toss & turn, sucking his fingers which I do not prefer him to do so so I give him pacifier instead. It's tiring me out. If I dont give him his pacifier or carry to pat him back to sleep, he will cry and this will lead to him being fully awake. Any advice pls? Thanks!
Hi VivLee, i'm a stay at home mum too. When my baby was younger, she weaned off night feeds pretty fast but just like your son, she woke up a couple of times every night. When we stopped giving her the pacifier, everything improved. Because we didn't give her a pacifier, she wouldn't wake up in the middle of the night looking for one. Not sure if it's the same case as your son. Anyway, could your son be teething?
Hi Qookie! Thanks for sharing. I have my son on a pacifier because I didn't want him to suck on his fingers (he gag in his own fingers - me headache sigh lol) And he is still wearing mittens at night because he scratches himself , which I have no idea how to stop him except to let him learn from pain. Already he scratched his scalp & corner of his eye till bled a little... Back to point, I dont want him to suck on fingers especially with mittens on (get cold hands). Do you let your baby suck her fingers? Mine will cry if he doesn't get to suck. Maybe.... I might try your suggestion. A night without mittens and just let him suck on his fingers.
My daughter's pediatrician told us not to let her wear mittens past 2-3 months. Babies will want to explore with their hands and it's important that they do. What she said was to regularly trim her nails. That worked, even though a couple of times, she did scratch her face. But i guess, babies learn. Haha. Eventually.
If i see my baby sucking her fingers, i'll tell her 'no no'. But i do see her sucking them when she's asleep. I guess it's either that, or her dirty looking pacifier that keeps dropping out of her mouth that i have to sterilize many times a day.
Some parents prefer their babies sucking on their pacifiers. Because they can remove the pacifier, but not the baby's fingers (joke!). I'll rather her suck on her fingers because it gives her (and us) an uninterrupted night's sleep.
Does your son sleep with air-con? Hence the need for mittens?
I am new in this forum and currently pregnant to our first child.
I am 32 yrs old. Baby is now 3 month and 5 days.
Hi Qookie! I did exactly as you did, on the no-no part. And I've been doing it for over a month now. Guess my boy inherits his stubbornness from daddy & mommy well. Hahaha... I am seriously considering letting him suck his fingers, in hope he gets good sleep and learn to soothe himself back to sleep whenever he awakes at night.
Besides to prevent him from scratching himself, I let him wear mittens also due to the reason that he sleeps in air conditioned room. But there, if he wets his mittens, it's kinda redundant.
by the way Qookie, may I ask how old is your girl?
VivLee, my girl is 1year old now.
Haha. Mine's stubborn too. Inherited from both sides. Hahaha.
Wow Qookie, guess "the worst is over"?? Probably till "terrible twos" reaches. Hahaha... Thanks again for sharing your experiences.
I'm 33, ftm to a 1mth + baby girl! welcome!
Hi mummies, this coming January I will be conducting Letterland Phonics Workshop for parents. Basically, it's a sharing session on how parents can use Letterland to teach phonics to their children at home. I am trained in Early Childhood Education and trained in Letterland too. I have many years of experience in teaching preschoolers phonics using Letterland.
For those who are keen, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will forward you more details.
In addition, do let me know what are some other workshops that you would be keen to attend? Besides Letterland Phonics, I am considering other workshop topics such as creative writing, reading, etc. Thanks!
I am 28 years old and i have one yr old son.
Any mummies who want support or explore into holistic living are free to join the Holistic Pregnancy and Birth Support Group. First meet up on 24 January. We can chat over dinner on our birth or pregnancy experience. What other holistic practitioners can help to smooth the pregnancy and birth journey.
