From your little ones' crying or scream or behave can you ACTUALLY tells what he/she wans? Or do you need to trial n error?
Seriously for me till now i still cant tell what he want straight when he crying coz be it hungry or need to change diaper or wanna sleep his behavior n crying is the same just that i knw he always want to sleep after his bath~
Sumtimes i just feel sux manz like as if i am a shitty mummy that doesnt even understand my own son what he wans while so many mummies around can tell.
dnt despair ok?
does your boy cry vrey long for all occasions?
my 1st boy was also like that.mine i tink was far worst..kept crying like nobody's biz..as i was a stay at home mum at that time,i had to carry him on my chest to sleep with him,even at nite!!pacifying him alone was diff .but i took in advices from everywhere,books,magazines,parents n in laws..
now for my 2nd boy,he's so different frm his brother..very quiet..*touch wood*(i very pantang)a lot of my friends say im very lucky but they dnt know what i went thru for my 1st one.i tink experience also plays a part.
take your time to learn,to adapt..dnt pressurize yourself..need help just let me know,k?i will try help in any way i can coz i know how frustrating it can be..
hey lady.. for me my dear son is now 21months .. i still got to guess what he wants.. cos he doesnt know how to talk.. not even kal me.. all he can do is point.. and at times when he's frustrated or impatient he doesn't want to point.. he just kick n kick n stomp around.. dont fret.. all mommies got to trail n error der.. *cheERrSs*
dear daughter is 5mths+ now... sometime also need to guess what she want when she cry...
i am with my ds2 almost 24/7 and can read him. and cos he doesn't cry or throw tantrum for no reason, so it is pretty easy to read his needs.
unless he cry in his sleep...then that is another story....
LoVeS, i think it is very normal.. slowly, you will get to know.. dont't stress yourself too much..
I agreed as what the other mummies mentioned... dont't over stress yourself... I also take months to totally understand his cries... So dont't be despair... Cheers
most of the time i can. but nowadays she is teething so she cries n make noise for nth. just want attention.
it's normal...dont stress yourself over it ! Your dear son is still a baby and since he still cannot talk, it's normal for us parents to use trial and error to see what he wants...dont stress ok! Every baby goes through this and you'll need to wait until about 2 years old when he can verbalise what he wants...still a long way to go !
Hmm...how about thinking that it's a good way for dear son to strengthen his lungs by crying?? Well, that's the Q way of thinking that we adopt when my dear son was a baby!
so far, i can tell what my baby wants when he cries.
yes i supposed,
Yelling means MILK time
Crying on n off means he wants to sleep yet dont want to go to bed
fidgets n shout means he doesnt like the positions he is in at that moment
Shout n yell on n off means he wants attention
moving around non stop means CARRY time
Is this clear ?
wah you very firece...
now i firece with my boy, he doesn't even understand.
I just sooth him try every possible way to do until he cool down. But with my mom & hubby around they will always take over even before I start my fire...
