Yes! Change bottle change teats all useless. My baby still have bm to drink. If yours is in fm I suggest you can let Lo go hungry I try that and after that she will just drink from bottle.
dun worry, my lo 14 months. only call papa n not mama. haha
VIP Member
Dun worry about having to hit milestones. Converse with them more, read more books. It will come when they are ready :)
It’s still early, my son starts saying mama when he was close to 1yr old
VIP Member
Every baby has their own pace. Should not worry :)
Still early!

VIP Member
Be patient, it's still early ☺️
Super Mum
My daughter only said baba and mama properly at almost 2 yo 😂 The average age is around 14 months. Don’t worry. Now my girl talks non stop
VIP Member
Ekkk still so early!!!
Super Mum
It's actually quite normal :) Nothing to worry. Working with infants, they all have different timings. Just enjoy it while it last 😉
VIP Member
It's normal.
VIP Member
I think it's fine, you may want to consult the pediatrician on your next visit...
No rush. Every child is differen
Don't rush your child. Some even 18months then can walk
My LO start to walk unassisted by 13 months. Still rmbr her birthday, she can only stand walk abit and fall. And now she 17 months running non stop and love walking. 😂 Every child is different. Just slowly keep guiding her..

Every child is different.
Super Mum
Every baby is different. Mine only stand on own at close to 12 months old. :)
Super Mum
I think it’s fine cause all babies are not the same. Maybe she will hit the milestone a little later.
It may not be surprising that it is taking her a bit longer to stand than other kids her age
Hey, Yes should be fine. You can also try buying small size pasta, then there is no need to blend. Just boiling should do
VIP Member
Get those small ones so you don't haVe to blend
Super Mum
Can. But no need to.. Can just get those small star pasta and cook for baby
VIP Member
Yes, you can
yup can.
VIP Member
yes
Yes but can be just boil. No really need to blend
Super Mum
You can buy those star-shaped pasta for babies. Just cook until its very soft, no need to blend. I think 9 months it's OK to introduce some texture already
Super Mum
Yes it’s fine to introduce it for a 9 month baby.
VIP Member
Can mash it with fork
Hey, I would suggest just don't think about it too much and let it go. It might be because your MIL would have got little tired or might be simply nothing
Just ignore...mayb next time when u home buy something for her
VIP Member
I feel you. I just let her nag and let it goooooo
VIP Member
Don't take or too personally...Maybe next time buy her favourite food or a little gift (:
Same for my side, when my sil brought her child here she will gave her full attention and ignore mine. Then I have to do everything. Moreover she will nag when my hub and I wanted to take a break like go out for dinner or smth. When we say we bring LO she will also comment don’t bring la, so troublesome when you all want to eat. Seriously, I don’t know what is up in her mind too... I feel you!!!

We can’t really help it...and she’s her daughter after all. Perhaps next time, you can get her something when you go back home. If it doesn’t improve her attitude, then there’s nothing you can do. We can’t please everyone. Just be a dutiful wife and mother and respectful DIL. As Long as you’re happy, nothing else matters.

Same as my MIL. Initially ask her to help our during confinement maybe we can order confinement tingkat to eat together. She said ok at first. After a week she say she changed my mind. She told my husband it’s Because she don’t want to quarrel with me. But my husband’s lil bro getting married soon and she’s ok that her NEW daughter in law move in with her. My Hubs got so mad and told her off. Oh well. Everyone have their own issue I Guess. But ya. Some MIL just like that.

No choice.. our children our responsibility. The mil is not obliged to take care of your children anyway. Look on the positive end, at least you get some time out while she looked after the child for a few hours. Some mothers dont even have such luxury, they have completely no help, stuck with children as long as they are breathing.. and may not even remember when the last time they went to a cinema
Read more
Maybe next u go out ask her if she feels like eating anything or buy anything.sometimes it's just the attention they need. And also sometimes they will say no need no need no need, but actually when u bought it they very happy in their heart but don't show it out. Just got to do with the pride babe.

There's always different between daughter and DIL. I guess most of us loves our mother more than MIL too U will feel better if u can ignore and stop comparing
Super Mum
My LO had a bottle strike when she was teething. I suspected it was painful when she sucked on the teat. Latching on was ok, and she drank happily from the straw bottle too. See if she feels better after biting on a chilled teether (those that can be refrigerated).

Hi... don’t worry. Every child development is unique
Super Mum
Just continue to monitor. My lo only sit unsupported at 20 months.
Don't worry..They will when they are ready
Hi, There is nothing to worry about. Every child has different growth process so it will happen gradually. Just keep monitoring
VIP Member
Should be fine...Just continue to monitor for another month or so
VIP Member
Don’t worry some kids take time ..
It can be common. But should you think it’s worrying, you can visit your OB and seek consultation :)
Don’t worry so much. Different baby different milestone
Super Mum
Not to worry. Mine also faced the same problem and only able to sit well without support around 10 months old. Different kids have different milestone developments. Ur LO will definitely catch up.
Super Mum
Different kids take different amounts of time to develop the various skills. Just keep practising, and your LO will get there soon:) and monitor all the other milestones eg. Fine motor skills, babbling, etc. If all the skills are not there, then seek medical attention.

Older gen are like that. They are not educated on breast milk benefits.
The reasoning is funny. Lol. But explain it nicely to your MIL. If you have BM in thr fridge you can explain how to thaw and when to give but if it is a lil bit complicated for your MIL to understand then you might want to consider mix feeding.

VIP Member
Sorry to hear that. BM is still the best for babies! Chubby babies don't mean they are healthier. As long as the baby is at normal weight and height for his/her age, it's ok. Many ppl don't understand that. Pls be more patient and carry on Mummy. You're doing great!

Can mix. Morning and afternoon can give bm then when u want bb to sleep through use fm. Don't need to fight with her jus do that u feel is right.
Super Mum
Explain to ur mil nicely that BM is beneficial to babies due to its antibodies content which is absent in fm. Babies need it to build up immunity system. Can do mixed feeding if weigh growth is a concern. Ask ur hubby to explain to her as well.
Read more
Just explain Grannies grew up and they are taught FM is better than BM
I just explain that BM has the antibodies to build baby's immunity. So it's important for baby to drink BM. I have to feed both though, coz not enough BM. :(
You are baby's mother not her.. Feed what is good for baby
Talk to her nicely if not talk to your husband
VIP Member
Just explain to your mil nicely or ask your husband to talk to her.

Probably is teething that cause the uncomfortable. Get a teething gel . And also 6mths its time to start with semi solids
Try introducing solids now and see if she likes them
you start introduce solids to him but only soft things
VIP Member
You can introduce solids to your LO now(:
Super Mum
You can try some solids, or increase the number of feeds, since the volume per feed is decreasing. Make sure baby is peeing well
Hi, Since the baby is turning 6 months, I think you may start introducing your LO to solids
Super Mum
Since is already 6mo, you may consider introduce 1 meal of solid food.
VIP Member
Could be both. You can start to introduce solids to your child to supplement
VIP Member
Hi... I suggest you request for samples for your LO to try and buy the one he/she prefers
