Hi, Anyone of you giving Manuka Honey for your tots? What do you give it with? I'm thinking of starting my lo on Manuka. Any brands to recommend?

Based on a friend's recommendation, I've started to give this Manuka honey for my 2.5yo for abt a month now. 1/2 a teaspoon a day plain followed by some warm water. I got it from Hock Hua.

More like a rant than a question. Today, I pulled my toddler from his sports day because he got uncomfortable with the crowd and he became fussy, complained that he is hungry and didn't want to join i

Hi Ester! Hope you are feeling better after a sleep. We all have our hard days and needing rest and sleep is the number 1 in the list, especially without any of the kids sleeping on our body per say.

Will ask around for you!
What do you do if you see a kid trying to steal your kid's toy (the one he's playing with) or tries to hassle him out of, for example a toy car so he can get in it? Do you intervene or wait and see ho

I will not intervene. Wait and see how your child handles the situation by himself. I will also suggest speaking to your child after the episode to find out what was his thought process. If he was w

I would not jump in immediately, would probably wait a while and observe how my child reacts to the situation. I believe this would help with the development of their social skills, their problem-solv

What do you do or say to strangers who likes to touch or about to touch your baby's hands? At this point your baby has already learned to put her hands in her mouth.
offer him or her to wash hand.
I tell them to stop. It's ok if I sound rude but they are strangers after all. Our baby's health is ultimately more important than hurting some random stranger's feelings
Normally I wont let strangers touch my kids. Unless they are from their pre school, people that I have seen in church.. those I have never seen before I will carry my baby away as fast as possible.
