You are doing something in the kitchen when you heard a high pitched shout from your little cribble whose playing. Then you hurried yourself to him only to find out that nothing bad happened. Its just that he couldn’t open a box or he can’t take his shoes on. Then the following days, you noticed that its more like being a habbit to him whenever he can’t make his way to something.
You find it frustrating, right?
You might be wondering why he come up to this attitude.
For all I know, this thing was just normal in their early age.
Within 16 to 19 months, it is prominent.
At this age, they are still learning to produce words. Maybe an average of one word per day. And some might still connecting the words they already knew to each other.
They could now see things that they wanted to take try or immitate. These are their little goals.
Seing you or other person succeeding on doing what he is trying to do and ending things not the way he want it to be could easily frustrate him.
And because he knew he is failing and unable to say a word to express his frustration, all he can do is scream.
This won’t get long, don’t worry. Just cut out the shout at once. Make him feel that you’re just there for help. Then if these things which he is up into were something not suitable for him to take a try, then find ways to turn his attention to something else they could do or make. Model for him. Let him see that you enjoy what you are doing. He will soon get attracted to your new activity. This will help him forget about what he is screaming for a while ago.
A mom on worry is a usual scene when there is a toddler at home.
We could not hold those curious cribbles in one place without glancing at once on them as we take aback.
By nature, toodlers are active. They had learned how to use their locomotor parts and we can’t just stop them from exploring around.
It is hightime to consider child proofing at home.
It is the best hand on response to this problem.
Look out for those sharp edges and heavy furnitures on reach at home. Fix broken things that might harm your child. Keep poisonous things out of their reach.
Always be alert having your Cribble around and make sure they’re within your sight most of the time.
A childproof home could not guarantee all the safety measures you expect, it is still our guidance which can make things atleast more athand.
Moms deserves a treat!
If it is not with them.. We could not get through all this that we are into now.
Let us make everyday a Mother’s Day. Show them how much we love and say it to them as long as we have them by our side.
“As I stare at the gray wall on our room.. Everything seems blank. Clear pages. Book’s texts fade.
I don’t want to live where everything is dull.
How many colors do we have? Wouldn’t it turns out weard to be painted all in a piece.. In a part?
The real thing is… I’m troubled. Have some doubt.”
See how a picture of things from our mind on concentration had brought up the reflection of what we truly feel?
I’m not a psychologist. I just know it’s a mind related thing.
Have you tried assessing yourself up in a different way like this?
Sometimes i think this is an art. Or it surely is and I’m not just aware that it really is? I don’t know but i badly hope so. All i know is that this weard thing in me satisfy me most of the time. It’s like visualizing things and depicting what it might mean as long as I can.
This things leads me to love writing. It brings out the uniqueness in me which is later I don’t just want to keep for myself.
I feel sharing would be something more than sharing it is. Not just for my own growth.. Not just to have me listened or to be understood. Not just to help by feeding my insights to troubled, my thoughts to someone might asking for opinion. Nor for the sake of the essence of writing.
I just feel it running through my veins!
I just love writing and it’s not me without it.
I have tried some ways of weaning my 17 months old son, Lenard Roi, from breastfeeding.
I started it a week before he turns 17 months by having my breast messily marked with a red lipstick, hoping he would refuse to suck it if it looks unwantedly dirty. This thing worked in my first approach to him. He frowned in disappointment to what my breast looks like but by having it observed more for moment, he was then willing to take it no matter how it looks. I refused to breastfeed him for a moment and tried the other way.
This was a plan with my husbands support and coordination.
We have prepared a bottled milk first as follow-up when he insist to have him feed. Lenard must not see me atleast just for the time we will execute the plan. My Husband joined our son for long minutes of play and bonding until Lenard called a time out for a breastfeed as he shout ‘dedede’. That’s the cue. I didn’t come for his need and remained out of his sight. His father gave him the bottle instead but he refused to take it, just biting the nipple and later throws the bottle away. He just cried and cried, shouting dedede everytime. We couldn’t bear seing our son that frustrated and decided just to wait for time he must be ready enough.
A child who’s not known to bottle feed at least alternately done with breastfeeding on his/her early age are more capable to have weaned later than those who did.
I have tested trying to alternate bottle and breastfeeding when Lenard was just 2 months old. He did it for the first 2 weeks, 25ml of milk formula once a day but does’nt want to suck on the silicon nipple on the following days. I assumed that is normal until one time, when I’am insisting him to bottle feed, he cried to his unwillingness not normally he does. I stopped pursuing for the bottle and offered him my breast instead. He just continue to cry and doesn’t taking my nipple even if it was already on his mouth. I got startled during that moment. I thought he won’t get recovered. My thanks to God when he gets back. From then on, I stopped giving him other milk for alternative.
Weaning your baby from breastfeeding takes time. As long as there is no risk in concern, you have the time and your milk is still in good terms, why not pursue breastfeeding until your child reach 2 years old? Isn’t that what is best for him/her?
Breastmilk contains all the essential nutrients your child need for optimum health. And besides, if your child can now eat solid foods, the money you would rather spend for buying milk formulas is wisely spendable enough for buying nutritious foods for the two of you.
