I remember the first time my baby falls off the bed; He was under the care of a nanny and I can’t concentrate on my work as I keep thinking of him. Why did he fall? How did he fall? How was he? Those questions were running on my mind while I tried to keep myself calm in the office. Thank God that he was well and nothing serious happened to him after that fall. Now for the second time, the little one fall off the bed again. This time, it was me who was looking after him. I feel guilty about this since he fell off the bed while I sneak to check my mails and facebook. I rush to pick him up and hug him while he cries and good thing that I was able to console him quickly and he was not hurt at all. When that thing happens, I was shuddering in nervous. After I picked him up, I don’t know what to do next. I tried to keep myself calm and tried to recall what to do when a baby fall. Things that we (hubby and I) learned in our research when he had his
Today the little one had his first day at the park. Hubby and I bought him along to Lake Garden together with few KL Pinoy Photography buffs for a Product Shoot. This was baby Z’s first day out in a park. Along with the excitement I was actually worried about insect bites since his skin had been reacting badly with insect’s bites so, I did not forget to bring along insect repellent to protect him from the bites.

During the early stage of the shoot, I can still see them within the shooting area but as we go on and moves on to different site location my eyes can’t reach them both. I wasn’t worried; I know hubby will be taking the little one somewhere to enjoy the place. When were about to change site location for the last time, I saw them both coming. And as I mention they just went to look for some fun. Hubby handed me my phone to show me something. Oh…It was a video of the little
He is nine months, two weeks and one day old to be exact. This month is promising for our little one since he has quite a lot of new skills to show off. Early on his ninth month, he was able to stand while holding on to furniture. It goes on as he continues to experiment by not holding on to furniture while he is standing and trying to balance himself. Eventually he can now stand on his own without support for 5 seconds; so far that’s the longest at the moment. He can walk on his crib using the frames as his guide and can walk for a short time with support on both hands. Along with the standing skills is sitting down skills. While he crawls fast, he eventually learned to sit down on his own. He is now also into several hand skills; the close-open exercise, aligning his finger with somebody’s finger, hi-fiving and a little clapping. And just this evening, we discover that he can already respond when someone waves him goodbye. He waves back too, it’s some sort of following what he can see from other people. His talking has also improved. He now talks
[caption id="attachment_1201" align="aligncenter" width="602" caption="teething moment"][/caption] On his eight month his first teeth finally showed up. Two teeth on his lower central incisor popped up together. This makes him drool morethan the usual and started to bite his bottle’s teats, pacifiers and even his and mommy’s fingers. Good thing that he don’t get fussy and he don’t refuse to eat and drink his milk. Perhaps he is not in pain and its just a good thing. [caption id="attachment_1204" align="aligncenter" width="512" caption="see that new pearly white teeth?"][/caption] Teething normally starts at six months. This makes our little one a late bloomer since he had his first two teeth on his eight month. Once baby is teething it is expected that they will feel discomfort as his gums is in extremely tender condition. Here are helpful tips to relief discomfort on teething babies. Rub his gums with your finger. This provide a counterpressure which sooth him and will give him a relief. Don’t forget to wash your finger. Give him something to chew. Just like rubbing his gums with your finger, chewing gives him counterpressure giving him a relief from aching pressure caused by a popping tooth. Chewing is even more effective
Eight months is a transition stage. This is where the baby learns different skills. From Holding a piece of food with his fist closed to dropping and picking. And from kicking up to jumping and a few steps with support. At this stage, you may start playing with your little one that will help develop his senses. Play visual game. A simple peakaboo or hide and seek will help him understand that even if you leave him, you will still be back right away. Play Audio Game. Playing with squeaky toys will help develop his sense of hearing. Know that babies love to be surprise with unexpected sounds that’s what makes squeaky toys their favourite at this stage. Give him stacking rings toys. This helps him learn shapes and colours. Stacking rings comes in plastic, wood and soft materials. Read baby books to your baby. Exposing your baby to books at an early age will reduce his hyper activeness when he grows old. So, have a wonderful play time with your baby. Enjoy!
Did you know that 1 out of 2000 babies is born with teeth? Yes that happened to my husband nephew who was born last December. But the doctor extracted it since there is a big chance that it might break and the baby might swallow it. The average age for baby to have their first tooth is from 4 to 7 months. However, there are also babies who won’t get their first milk tooth until 18 months. Our little one is already 8 months but he doesn’t have teeth yet. However, I can already see 2 white cup along his cut teeth which means before he turns 9 months he will have his first teeth. He is a late bloomer since he already passed the average age of having their first teeth. He has been drooling and wants to put in his mouth whatever he gets in his hands. Here is a traditional timetable on baby’s teething. According to researchers, 70% of babies get their teeth according to this time table. 6 months: lower central incisors – cutting teeth 7 months: upper central incisors 7.5 months: lower lateral incisors 9 months: upper lateral incisors 12 months: lower first molars (bicuspids)
As he grows he is meddling on things around him. He grabs everything that he sees as long as it’s reachable, and if he got it, he will examine it for a while and instantly it will land in his mouth and I will be repeating my dialog “no! that’s not for your mouth!’ while pulling it out from his mouth. He is now starting to get curious on thing s and even people around him. He’ll be staring for quite a while if there is someone unfamiliar to him. Pulling someone’s hair is also his hobby and as usual he will put it in his mouth as if it’s a food for him. At the moment he’s got more to add on his milestone. He started to become bubbly. He talks a lot of T’s. Tita, tata, ate, titi. He is able to walk with the walker. He is now able to straighten his back while seating, and can seat longer. He can also twist her trunk while seating. Learning to crawl, and starting to lift his body through a push up position. He also loves seeing himself in the mirror; he would always through a big smile when
