Hi jassmine, my answers are in blue...
Hi mummies, my girl was 18mth old this month, yet she still sucking pacifier often. whenever we keep her pacifier, she will start searching around and scream and cry for it and even lie down on the floor ( this goes to when she wants something n when we dont't give her too ). is there anyway to teach her? she is out of my control now~ i have some qns to ask below..
-she is going to playschool soon, doesn't want her to walk around with her pacifier.is there anyway to stop her from using it?
My son doesn't use the pacifier but he doesn't want to suck from a straw. Everyone in his playgroup can drink from a straw except him. So for us, we used a spout cup until now. The teacher doesn't mind him using the spout cup but told us that they will also help us to train him to drink from a straw.
My point is, not to worry. The teachers will try to help your daugther from outgrowing the pacifier. It might be tough at first because the pacifier might be her "comfort" in an unfamiliar place. Give her some time. Once the routine in school sets in, she might be willing to give up her pacifier. Not to mention that peer pressure also helps. Meaning, when she sees other kids in school not using pacifier, she might want to stop using it altogether.
You might want to try keep the pacifier away for longer intervals each time. Eg, you keep away for 10min.. then increase it to 20min and so on.
- my gal temper is going from bad to worse, is there any way to teach her? she understand what i said but she cant speak well, only cry to express herself.
I think every kid has their tantrums and tempers. The reason being is they are unable to control their emotions and giving in to their tantrums reinforces this behaviour which is not good.
For my son, when he loses his temper and screams. I will ignore him. I will ask him to calm down, to sit down and wait, or to go play with other things first. After several weeks, he was able to understand that I will give him what he wants, eg milk, but he just gotta wait for it.
-she is still drinking her milk every 3hours even she have solid food, actually i dont't mind her from drinking every 3 hr but what if she goes to school for half day class? does the teacher there can feed her every 3 hr? she still refuse to hold her own bottle.
Before my son moved from infant care to play group, he was also having his mlk every 3 hours. When he first moved over the playgroup, he couldn't adapt and was very hungry by lunch.
2 weeks later, he kinda got the idea that there's not going to be milk given at 10am. So he drinks more in the morning and eats more at lunch to make up for the drop in 1 milk feed.
Thanks in Advance
Hope this helps.
