Anyone experienced this?
- Just for sharing. My daughter has this habit of pulling her hair to get herself to sleep, she did this from 4 months old and sometimes she ask us to do it for her too. Anyone else to share habits of your LO? :)Wendy Soh
- My baby girl is 6 weeks old. she has learnt to lift and turn her head during tummy time on week 5 and is now trying to lift herself up (of course she's unable to do so) and move like a lil turtle. I'm not sure if I should encourage this (she's still so young) or should I stop tummy time for the time being?
Congrats on ur LO's milestone. She is certainly a fast learner. At this age, she is probably v excited as she has learnt new tricks (flip, lift and move). She is at exploratory stage which is good. However, do be mindful that she should not be on her tummy time for too long (more than 10 mins) as she is using her arms' strength to support her body which can be tiring. I will suggest for you to monitor her as if she is overly tired on her arms, she will lose the balance and face flatten on ground. This can be dangerous as she might suffocate.Jia Min Chew
- Hi moms , I have a five years old daughter which I really don't know how to handle . I am not sure why she can't play herself all the times except when she is seeing iPad, and most of time I would give her to watch at iPad for too long as it is not good for her . So when she is not watching ipad she can't play herself even if u have play with her alwhile le she still can't play herself and I am a very impatient person , what should I do
My daughter went through a phase just like this, and after reading a lot I decided to just go cold turkey. I took the Ipad away and locked it in a cupboard. I did it on the weekend, when I had a lot of time and we spent the whole day outdoors at the zoo, indoor play areas and with family. She was so busy that she did not miss the IPad. I then set up a very busy schedule -- which I have to say was a lot of hard work for both me and my husband. She cried for it on Monday and Tuesday and threw a big tantrum, but we did not give in. the crying lasted one week. Now three years later, she has fixed times at which she can play/work on Ipad. As for not wanting to play by herself -- she really needs to be able to do it. One way is to sit down to play with her -- building blocks, or drawing...start the activity with her and then step out for 5 minutes saying "you colour this, I will just go to the toilet and come back"...slowly slowly increase the time intervals you step out for. You will see that she will continue with the activity/game by herself. it takes time, and you have to be patient. Good luck!Goh Xin
