Milestones:For Hetal
2006-11-08
Name: rajiv Hetal, your suggestions have been very helpful to me.i hv'bn reading your replies and they are very easy to understand & are clear.thank you very much for your support and guidance.

i have some queries. in one of your mails, you said that ask your ped for the growth charts. i followed that and it was very helpful. but i see differences in milestones at a particular month in charts given by my ped and in various baby sites.
i observed that sometimes my baby reaches the milestones mentioned on babysites and other times he follows the chart that my ped gave.
so now i am really confused and i don't know which one to follow ?
can you please clear my confusion.
i have one more question regardng potty training. my son is 6months now and he is not able to sit with support. do you think it's good idea to start potty training ? i read in some forums that potty training with cloth diapers in winter gives cold to baby, is it true ?
does it really work ?
my wife is working and my mother takes care of my son. it will be tedious job for my wife and mother to manage cloth diapers.
so now i want to ask you what do you suggest me ?

Hetal, my family wishes you a very healthy pregnancy.g'day.

pooja i understand what you mean you say. but in delhi many people are using heater. i am born and brought up in delhi.btw the forums i read were american forums and not indian. so i suppose that clears that the winter they are ref is US winters and not indian winters.and i think all people in US have temp controlled.

btw simran, i would love to potty train my baby if he is ready for it.how do you know about thankgiving holidays. we don't celebrate that in India !!
btw, my wife is on call all the time. she has to work on holidays as well.if you can't solve someone confusion please don't interfere and make fun of someone.
neki karni thi to dusro kae messages maen kuud kae neki karnae ko kisnae bola thaa ? ek to aap beech maen apni taang adaa rahae ho upar confusion kar rahae ho aur baaki thaa to mazaak udaa rahae ho ?
sahi haen !

i think what simran means to say abt temperature is that even if u hv minus temp in US still the temp is controlled inside the house (unless rajiv has it otherwise) but its not the case in delhi. so all in all, staying inside such house in -ve temp outside in US is better thn being in 2-3 degrees in delhi with the child and potty trng it!

and not to forget, in india they also depend on nature for clothes to dry, dont hv dryers. and in delhi for 2-3 mons there is no sun all foggy.

Hetal's reply must be on the way, let me share my experiences meanwhile.

milestones : Yes, milestones chart are different at diff places. Infact, there cannot be a hard line drawn for the milestones, we can only give an apprx period.
What we can do as parents is - look for milestones in apprx +/- 1 month period and consult doc if anything seems not normal.

My second baby showed first milestone before any chart listed it. But rolled over to tummy later than any chart said!

Potty training: I think its good time for u to start potty training the baby. I started at 4m for my first kid and by the time she was crawling well, she wd go to the potty for pee and poo and scream holding it! I started training like this : baby generally makes faces or moans or makes strange noises when it is abt to poo. At that time, pick the baby and hold over the potty. Dnt worry if anytime the baby has already done it/does it on the way ... still hold the baby there. Or make the baby sit on potty for some time (as u hold the baby). Start like this and take to proper training gradually. Make it a fun time, esp in begining. If baby starts hating it, it ll be trbl for u to train. Never force the baby.
U can refer to other potty trng messages too.

Abt catching cold: are u in India/abroad? I m assuming u r in Ind as u r talking of cloth diapers. Well, i hv always used cloth diapers for my 2 kids and potty trained them. I m in delhi so u can imagine the winters. I took basic care - covered the baby's top if i hv removed diaper, used a room-heater when it was too cold, used lukewarm water to wash, made sure the baby doesnt stay nude and cold after the 'programme'. (assuming a normal healthy baby). If the next cloth diaper .. infact .. pyjama .. was too cold, i wd run it in microwave for few seconds and then put it on the baby!

O yes ... and i m a working person too :)

hope this helps
simran

i know the milestones are diff but one can't decide the milestone based on one or 2 children.
what you said, is exactly what i asked. my baby follows 2-3 diff charts and it becomes confusing which one to rely.there should be some rules that baby sites or docs follow.if we know it will be easier for us to prepare our child for the next milestone or atleast expect from him to achieve it ?

if the approx period is what doc consider then my ques stands the same because in some charts delay in achieving milestone like 1month delay is sign that something is wrong with baby.
so my ques stands the same
