2 year olds will like doodling. I got my LO the LCD tablet that allows her to draw, then press the button to erase everything on the screen. Doesn’t damage the eyes or cause any mess 😁 Simple puzzles will also be goodRead more
Hi Mummy, if you were wondering if you need to brush (wipe) your baby's gums even before their teeth come out, yes you do need to. A gauze dampened with some water is how I did it. After teeth emerge, here are a few rules you can follow when brushing your LOs teeth: 1. Use a teeny amount of baby toothpaste 2. Use a age appropriate toothbrush 3. Use very gentle strokes 4. As soon as the toothbrush starts to look worn, replace it. 5. Brush twice a day using little circular motions.Wee Qi
- Can anyone share their tried-tested ways to entertain baby. What kind of songs, actions, toys, furniture or gadgets do you use?
I am a mom of 4 boys and never had any help and I had to cook and clean the house all by myself. So the best way to keep my baby entertained was give him a bowl and spoon to bang on or a empty cup and plate...believe me it has worked for me. At times I would put on a dvd of Barney and Friends or Mickey Mouse Club house and allow my baby to watch. Best of all I entertain my baby by singing nursery rhymes and short stories and a baby's brain is like a sponge they grasp very soon. My youngest baby is now 2.5 years and can say numbers till 20, his alphabets from A-Z and knows to say short rhymes too. And yes he is still not going to school.Regina Peh
- How do you keep yourself sane and awake during the week when you have to cope with a 9 years old and a 18 years old who always fight for the remote control. 9 years apart and still fighting.
How about taking away the remote and introducing board games? It's a great way to interact and for the family to bond. It would be good to follow the rule where "nobody gets it if you're fighting". Sibling squabbles will always exist, regardless of their age gap. Television isn't a very good way for the family to bond and share, unless they're all watching the same show, which is not in this case.Anonymous
