Toddler Activities. Ways to entertain a toddler. How to keep my toddler busy? These are my recent searches and I am still on the look out for more. But can I be honest and real as a mom and say that almost 60% of what’s out there can only interest my toddler for a very limited time, to be frank 10 minutes max and then we need to introduce a new one as he’d lost interest already.
It’s the middle of the night and my toddler of 21 months woke me up crying and pointing at his mouth and cupping his cheeks as if to say that he cannot sleep because it hurts.
But what can I do? I cannot take away his pain even If I wished it to be mine instead. So I just did what every mother would do at the moment. I hugged and breastfeed him until he fell asleep…
What a sad scenario.
And what is the cause of this sad moment? A TEETHING BABY.
First of, we define toddler age as 1-3 years old
We all know that breastfeeding is good for your baby but what if that baby becomes a toddler and has decided to pinch and pull your nipples? Ouch! right? you may think of stopping but please hold your horses first and let me convince you to push a little longer and do an extended breastfeeding for these reasons…
Researcher. I am that and more whenever there’s something that I am interested in. Thank you for the wonderful and I hope will be a much faster – Internet Connection that I can read on reviews before buying a product or availing a procedure (This is specifically true when I was pregnant: such as the OGTT and CAS test). But now that Seb’s here and I got a little more time to browse online shops while breastfeeding him I have become quite addicted to ordering online to the point that almost every other day within a week there is something delivered to our house. A gift from me to me 🙂
Anyway, online shopping can be a hit and missed. And I am thankful that its very rare when I come across a bad one and I credit my research for such success. Well, so much my intro let me enumerate “My Top Mommy Products”.
For a mom who’s with my baby 24/7, thinking of ways to entertain him can be an effort. I need to come up with interesting activities that can help his learning development.
This has been a problem for almost 2 weeks now and It is driving me nuts! Who would have thought that POOP would become a big deal and take most of my time worrying.
Warning: If you are a Mom you’ll get me and sympathize but if not then you are reading the wrong post.
Here’s the story…
Seb did not poop for 10 days straight, as in nada a-a.
There’s this thing that Mothers always tell me before…
The Days are Long, But the Years are Short. So enjoy your baby while they’re a “baby”.
Ever since I had Seb, my life has become erratic. A feeling that I am always in a hurry, my eye on what is ahead, imagine a blur and craziness… but as Seb reaches his 6th month (I hope that I am not speaking too soon) I feel that I am now more calm, slow, mellow and at peace. A little dramatic it may sound. But that is my current state, not only as a Mom but as Me.
Why? … A little back story.
Baby Sebastian is now 5 months and has grown really active to the point of me getting headaches during diaper change moments. Seriously! Ooh, the joys and pain of raising an infant…
Goodbye newborn! Say hello to this easy to please, kinda gullible, pro roller, laughing machine and mommy finding infant. In a few weeks he’ll have Messy eater under his belt too as he will start to eat solids. More of purees I guess.
Our little Sebastian turns one month old recently and I am still quite crazed that its only been a month when I feel I’d aged a number of years just by taking care of him. My daily routine of sleepless nights may have played a big factor with my aging theory😊
Anyway, here are my thoughts and what I learned for the past month since we had our little man… (in random order).
