I am going to send my 4 mths daughter to infant care. what worried me the most is that my daughter cry. she always want me to carry n pat her to sleep. im afraid she will not get used to the infant centre environment. any mummies experience that?
Not a mummy but my girl went in IFC PCF after 3 months. If u have a good centre, the trs there will be Super dedicated to take care of your little one. After a while, u will get used. And dun worry, they r paid to take good care of your girl. Just trust and do yr research properly before sending her to an IFC.Read more
Dun worry mummy. Babies can adapt fast. Let the Teachers know about this, I'm sure they will have their ways to handle your gal.
hi chin yin at what age u start to send yr newborn to infant care?
It is v heartbreaking for any mummies to leave our young ones with someone else and knowing they will cry their hearts out. When I sent my sticky clingy gal to cc, she would start to cry and cling tightly onto me. It continued for a good 2 months till she stopped crying when I was about to leave the centre. All I can say is, once they are at the centre, they will be trained and will get used to the trs caring for them. Don't worry about them being used to u and afraid they will cry. It will happen but toung children adapt to the environment v fast.Read more
- My three months baby is fully breastfeeding. but sometimes I do give her formula milk because I can feel my breast milk is not enough. I try to make her drink formula milk either she drink little or dont want. I try to change to bottle teats also the same. She rejects again. I am going to send her to infant care. Im afraid that she wont drink the bottle or formula milk. She is too attached to my breasts. Any mummies experience the same. Any advice mummies?
Yes I face the same problem as you before and so I stop my breastfeeding at 14months my girl was so fussy that she did not accept solid food and formula when when she was 12months and was only fully bm . On her 13months thanks god finally she accept to take porridge but still not formula but I tried every night keep trying and trying still the same . when she is 14 month I decided to stop so I did not let her latch n let her feel hungry for about 1 hrs plus later she start to feel hungry and slowly feed her formula with pigeon wide bottle she start to accept it but from that day onward I did not latch or give her bm anymore don't want her to feel confuse . if you wan her to take formula you got to stop give her bm already .Anonymous
- Hi any mummies encounter by baby crying a lot at infantcare..my baby is 5 mths old..heard a negative feedback that my baby cry need to carry and pat then my baby is ok....for me usually i will carry her when she cry want to slp or cranky. Feeling disappointed of what the teacher said...
Different babies adapt differently in ifc .. I am an infant care teacher. To me some can adapt v fast and some really takes super long.. Sometimes on off crying. So jus don worry so much .. And it's normal for 5mth old baby wan to be carried. They feel no security. For my daughter, she enters ifc only when she is one year old. Yet I also worry she will not adapt but to my surprise around 2-3 weeks she turns out to be fine. She loves gg to school .. Always wave goodbye to me and chase me off.Anonymous
- Right from the beginning, my MIL said that she don’t want to take care of my baby. Reason is that she was tired taking care of my SIL’s kid and she don’t want to lose her freedom/wants to go for holidays. She even told me and my hubby to have only 1 kid cos it’s a lot of hard work taking care of a baby/kid. Now that my maternity leave is ending and I have already looked for an infant care centre and put a deposit, my MIL suddenly said that she wants to take care of my baby until he turns 18 months then put in childcare. Should I take up her offer or still stick to infant care? TBH I am worried that my baby will fall sick often in infant care. He is also very active. But I am worried that my MIL will change her mind again. She is also taking care of my SIL’s kid (He falls sick often too.) Confused mummy here. What should I do?Anonymous
