Hi... don’t worry. Every child development is unique
Super Mum
Just continue to monitor. My lo only sit unsupported at 20 months.

Hi, There is nothing to worry about. Every child has different growth process so it will happen gradually. Just keep monitoring

jus rant
Mil asked me to stop bm cos last few days when i not ard, she giving fm, she felt that fm giving my girl to look more chubby. These days i m back n started back on bm, she feel my girl slim down alr�
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
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
VIP Member
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 conc
Dislike milk?
LO turning 6m1k, her milk intake is gettin lesser from 140mls to 100mls. Issit teething or wanna try solid soon?
VIP Member
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(:
VIP Member
You can try some solids, or increase the number of feeds, since the volume per feed is decreasing. Make sure baby is peeing well
which sld i try
Gonna start Nestle Cerelac for LO. But sld i try Rice or brown rice with milk for her?
VIP Member
Hi... I suggest you request for samples for your LO to try and buy the one he/she prefers
Moaning before night slp
Recent night bef her sleep, she will make sound whilr eyes r shutting. She will make noise as if car engine. Lol. She doesnt do that before she 5mth old.
VIP Member
Your child might be tired. Please try to restrict her day time activities
weakening muscle
Anyone experience weakening of the legs muscle after deliver? Resulting in abnormal walking gait
Is LO small sized?
My LO 4m plus, she only weigh 5.7kg. Drinking 120mls per 3hrs. I keep worrying she not putting on enough cos my friend' LO younger than my LO alr weigh like 7kg ): Wat sld i do?
Do not worry too much and don't compare with other LO, as long as your LO is healthy and is eating well everything is fine.
VIP Member
see the growing chart ever since she was born, see if the growth is stable even at lower percentile, as long as she grows along the same line then it's fine
Hey, I think there is nothing to worry about as long as the child is healthy and eating properly
She's drinking well and very baby is diff, no worry. Mine also 4month old… drink lesser than yours but weight heavier
My 5 weeks old baby already weighed 5.36kg. Haha... i guess every baby is different. As long as they drink well and poo, that's fine.
sld get baby support beanbag chair
My LO turning 5mth soon. Sld i get her baby support beanbag chair for her to sit? Anyone tried before?
Super Mum
5 month old soon will be able to sit independently so I think no need. Plus bean bag can be hot and stuffy baby might not like. I have a beanbag at home (normal adult beanbag) but I put my baby in for
Super Mum
Should be fine. If you heard of bumbo seat, some people say not good cos they rely on it to sit straight
Leg pain
Anyone experience leg problems after labour? As in pain upon walking or upon movement. No epidural taken during labour.
Super Mum
Mine is more of hip pain whenever I got up from bed or chair. The pain persisted for a few weeks after delivery.
Yes i did. After the postnatal massage i've signed up for, i felt better afterwards. Not so sure if it works for you though but if the pain worsen, please go doctor
After giving birth, I had pain on my feet when standing. I just had TCM massage and it disappeared. Got you if leg pain persists, better go see a doctor
Hey, I would suggest go see the doctor
VIP Member
Before yes but not after. Do go for TCM if the pain gets too unbearable
