just saw your e-mails and thought i must write about walkers. my paediatrician told me that baby walkers are now banned in canada and that they are extremely dangerous for the child, both orthopedically and for accidents. so please even though i know it keeps them occupied and you can do your work talk toy our pediatrician before using them

Good morning,

Yesterday I gave Aisyah Amirah some golden kiwi (it's sweeter than the normal green kiwi) and she loves them. Unfortunately it's a seasonal fruit unlike oranges which we could get everyday of the week if we wanted to.

Feeding her is also becoming a chore since she too loves to play with her food. But for the first few spoons she will take in willingly but when she is full she will want to just dip her little fingers into the bowl. Now everyone (and everything) has to play a part when I'm feeding her...like I will have to say 'look grandpa..Aisyah is eating and she's a clever girl...' one spoon in...then 'look auntie Lina, Aisyah is eating'..and another spoonful goes in...and whenever she takes in a spoonful...we'll say 'clever girl' and she'll clap her hands and we all clap our hands too...

it doesn't stop at the father, grandfather or auntie but even the birds, the wind and even the house lizard is also involved in diverting her attention.

I guess babies love the attention given to them and that's another way that they are responding well...

towards the end when she wants to play with her food, I sometimes just let her be because I could see the curiosity in her to learn about the food that just went into her mouth. But when u allow this to happen, just becareful of the mess that she is bound to make...:)

Her crawling has improved but sometimes she does show signs of 'laziness'. She loves to stand up and will try to walk from side to side holding on to whatever she can.

Aisyah Amirah could also say mama, papa, buah, etc...and whenever I sing to her she will want to follow and sing with me (in baby language of course) but she will make all the noises that she could and it resembles her singing rather than screaming or shouting or crying...

Tell me about enjoying her bath...now that she could sit on her own, we don't use the baby support anymore and she will bite her rubber ducky and try to make more noises and sounds because the effect comes out differently. Then when she sees the bubbles in the tub she will want to try and catch them.

My little Aisyah Amirah is easily tickled. My dad says she's really a bundle of joy seeing that she laughs easily, tickled easily and she loves playing pick-a-boo. It'll be she who is doing it with the pillows or her blanket and not the adults...then again she copied from the adults...:)

The problem that I'm facing right now is that since she is very much eager to sit, changing her diapers and even dressing her after her bath is becoming a problem. Do u face as such?

Hi Jayashree,

Tried giving her a lot of things just to divert her attention. It works for a while but then the fuss starts again. If it's a minor changing then I think I got the hang of changing her diapers in time but if it is the major 'job' then it takes a longer time. But she will make a fuss since she doesn't like to be 'dirty' so when the water touches her bottom, then she will quieten down for a while. Then the mother has to work fast...such a race with time...

hi

same thing goes with my son too. he loves to play esp while bathing and his food intake has reduced a lot (according to me) also, he too troubles me a lot while changing his diapers. but one thing, if i give him baby mirror, he will c his face for sometime, i must finish changing his diapers within that few seconds. try giving some thing to divert her attention. it will work.

Hi ladies,

My Aisyah Amirah has started crawling although kinda wobbly at times. She doesn't like to go into the walker even tho that's one way to keep her occupied while we do work around the house. She is very much eager to stand on her own already. I sometimes give her oranges to suck on and even tho she'll make faces, she would want them more. Can oranges make her constipated?

Regards,
Rozie

hi there,

its good to hear abt teething. but my son, hasn't developed any tooth. he is expecting at any time. so am bit on the safer side...:)

even sashank tries to stand a lot holding anything. he can able to sit without any support for some time now.

i don't think orange juice will cause constipation. because i give him twice or thrice a day. its fine for him.

but be careful, if that gets choked on if given raw.

sashank likes fruit desserts and egg custard in jars.

the main issue i am facing now is he has become more playful while having his meals. does your little ones also do this?

he tries to speak small words like dada mama yaya etc. quite funny to hear. and laughs instantly when he coughs or sneezes. and he is enjoying his bath now-a-days. thats it.
write more abt yours...

hi jichi,

i understand abt the issue you are facing under feeding section. these type of non-sense guys are unavoidable in the web. just make a complain to indiaparenting authorities and its better you just ignore it.
we all know abt you, jichi. so don't worry. we know who is fake and who is original.

love

Hi Mathu,

So we are 'neighbours'! That's great! Amirah has becoming quite a charater herself. She just turned 8 months last Sunday and becoming quite a handful. Her teeth is also out...4 top and 3 down..and breastfeeding can be quite painful. Ouch! But I still do enjoy breastfeeding her nonetheless. Since I am taking vege and tofu sup at nite, she frequently want my food instead of hers. I shouldn't encourage it or do you think it's ok to start my baby off with table food? Adult food definitely taste better than insipid baby food...

Take care,
Rozie

hey,

good to hear that amirah is 8 mths with teeth. sashank is expecting his teeth at any time.
even i wonder, he stares at me whenever i take food. sometimes, i do give him to taste...but not things which are so spicy. for ex. juice, bread, upma, idli etc. he likes such things. every morning, i used to have breakfast having him nearby. he will never allow to take unless i give him.
so lovely, right. just try giving some no-oily and spicy foods. a very little bit only.
my sis used to tell one should try giving all the tastes before a year so that they will not become fussy eater. her son is not at all a choosy eater, he even eats bittergourd etc.

ok, rozie take care.

Subject:  try giving rice/wheat or brown rice
hi mona,

good to hear abt aditya. may be you can start with plain rice cereal (nestle) mixed in BM or formula. try giving it and wait for the next one to start. if that suits him, you can try wheat with banana/apple during day time. in between you can also give biscuits, fruits like banana etc. but dont forget that banana sometimes causes constipation.
try your best.

Hi mathu,

I was also told the same by many of my friends. Each baby is an individual and that's how they develop. Initially, I didn't want to get a walker for my baby but it was a gift from a friend. So we just put her in it and she only could move backwards. Only out of the blue, on one fine day she decided to move forward. She has been since then! :) I started my daughter, Amirah, on baby food only when she was close to 6 months. Now she is eating 3 times a day but not much...probably a max of 2 tablespoon of the cereal mix. In between she has her milk about 5-6 bottles throughout the daytime. At nite after I get home from work, I breastfeed her. What about sashank? is he feeding well on baby food? I am in Malaysia. What about yourself?
Take Care.

Regards,
Rozie

hi rozie,

i live very close to you, at singapore. i am a freelance writer. thats good to hear about amirah. sashank takes mutigrain fruit breakfast, lunch with veggies and diluted juice and rice/brown rice/wheat cereal at nights and twice i give him bottle feed. since i am stay home mum, i feed myself in between during day and nights.
recently he has become bit playful in having his solids, so challenging task for me. otherwise he is fine.

take care, rozie

Subject:  7 months and still not crawling
Hi,

My daughter is 7 months plus going on 8 this coming 22/6. She is not crawling yet but she is fast in the baby walker. People said I shouldn't be worried. If your son is crawling at age 6 months then should I be worried then?

Subject:  don't worry for not crawling....
hi,

there is no need to worry at all. each child is different in their manipulation, locomation and speech skills. crawling stage is optional for babies. some babies do while many don't.
be happy that your daughter is so fast in baby walker. my son, sashank hasn't yet tried it at all.
let me know what is your daughter feeding shedule.btw, where do you live?
anyway, all the best.

thanks
mathu
