I,m working in 2 days time.. In law will help to look after my 9mth+ boy . But somehw i stil very worry she able to handle anot.. Another thing is i also worry she anyhw feed my boy eat thing..
Like Durain ice ( I saw it ) , Snippy Peanut jam . T.T !!
sigh i worry they bring son out then i after work reach home cant accompany him then gt to wait they back home which was 8pm+ (Their Timing ) Then i only gt 2 hr with Son ...
Since newborn till now i,m the one who look after him..
Those mummy letting inlaw look after do you all also worry @ the very 1 time?? Will every thing be fine?
hmm.. sometimes my in laws do things which i feel is not right. like feeding him water. because i breastfeed him, i dont't see a need for even tiny amounts of water. luckily they feed him a little only. so i dont't really say much about it.
i told my mother in law to give him his feed at certain timing. if he can't finish, make him wait till the next feed. otherwise he will be feeding every hour and drinking a little each time. she said never mind, she has the time to feed every hour. so now, my son drinks 40ml each time every hour. sometimes more, sometimes less. but luckily at night he can sleep like 5 hours straight.
and my son tend to be fussy and moves a lot during feeds. so my mother in law will carry him and feed him while sitting on those computer chairs with wheels. and then she will start moving around so that my son can feed without being fussy. i'm so worried my son get used to it and insist everyone to do that while feeding.
actually, i just dont't like her doing some stuff. but i guess every child will grow up eventually. being so fussy with how my child is taken care of for what! i quite relax one. haha! the most i'll give some casual remarks . i dont't get uptight or worried.
everyone loves my son, every action to him is an act of love, whether i approve of it or not. so i dont't get too upset. at least it's better than outsiders whom might complain and talk bad about my son to their friends or scold him or worse, abuse him. i dont't get too worried.
as for feeding your son peanut butter and durian, just tell them dont't introduce, researchers say baby's stomach not developed yet. i always use 'researchers said' or 'i read a book that says' or 'i watch on tv' etc etc to try to tell them why not to give water, or how to take care of my son. it works. that's why he is given lesser water now.. old people always scared of heaty. dont't know why. they even give my son barley water, thankfully it's without sugar because they know sugar is not good. haha!
whatever it is, family members love your son enough to take care of him well, regardless of whatever they do or whatever method they use. your boy will eventually grow up. so relax!
