Does your baby do stretching?
My 1.5mths baby has been stretching soooo much that its affecting her sleep.
pediatrician said its normal and is growing spurt but i wonder how long it will end....
My #1 also like that but i cant remember how long it lasted...
in what way is it affecting her sleep??
I like to see my baby stretch, so cute like adult!
Elders said baby who stretch grow taller faster, i dont knw hw true is that, but my boy have been stretching alot since birth.
Recently brought him for his 3 month jab, the pediatrician said his height is in 90 percentile, but me n my hubby quite short...haa..mayb due to the stretching?
my baby also stretch alot with eeh eeh noise that affect his sleep also.. haha.. been awaked by his own stretchin.. still thought my boy's the only 1.. haha..
glad to know it's normal
It's good for them to stretch. My boy used to stretch alot. His is considered tall for his age (never go check how many percentile).
My #2 is worst than #1, she can stretch till she burst out crying. Sound like a painful stretching process..hahaha
Has your boy been able to sleep well? Mine cant...everyone said baby usually sleeps and drinks but my gal drinks and awake...
or bak cut already...
My baby love to stretch alot with sound effect too. So much that its affecting her sleep too. so now i make her sleep stomach down n it stop. butwhen she sleep face up it will start again.. she uses so much strength that her belly button is now sticking out. but when not stretching it goes back in again.
When will the stretching stop anyone??
mine start stretchin from 1st month ya.. he stretches more when he's in the sarong.. when on bed still not so bad.. awake already pat him back to sleep .. lucky still able to sleep well but will keep wakin up n fallim back to sleep due to the stretchin.. haha
veronica not all babies eat n sleep , so guai 1..
that's what i thought also.. before my baby..
mine is reali hard to take care ya.. eat also cry.. sleep also cry.. change diapers also cry.. burp him also cry..
never c before lei..
everythin have to c his mood.. so small yet everythin have to do in his way.. sigh
Hahaha i am not alone...But i read from a book usually baby sleeps more than 14-16hrs a day.
My baby dont know got 10hrs a day bo...she also got awaken by her strong stretching and sometimes will burst out crying.
I still swaddle her as it makes her sleep a little better than no wrap.
Its so difficult to put her to sleep....
pin also stretch alot. i think tts why she is tall for her age now??
ppl think she is 3-4 yo now.
at 1st i was quite worry also.. but he's still puttin on weight , i m a super kiasu mum , every now n then i 'll keep weightin him.. 7 kg now.. and can eat and play so not so worry .. just need extra effort to coax him to sleep..
mayb they cramped in our stomach too long.. need excerise.. haha..

2 to 3 hours.. but once he awake stay awake for quite long.. half to 1 hours.. sometimes 2 hours..
if go shoppin in air con place but hand carry.. 4 hours.. haha.. every few days i'll bring him go enjoy air con.. house dont have no choice
what about urs?
You mean day time he can sleep around 2 to 3hrs total? How about night time?
Mine around 3-4hrs thats why i think she sleeps lesser than the book claims.
oh not total .. is per slpin session.. daytime about 9-10 hours.. nite time also about the same..
my friend baby also like urs.. her baby 7 mths already.. is when he gettin older now then he sleep a bit more.. when he was smaller per slpin session was 1 to 1 1/2 hours only.. keep kpo-ing.. but still growin well.. different baby different ..
is your baby eatin well? can play?
