Putting Baby Down to Sleep

Generally, a good bedtime for babies is somewhere between 7:00 and 8:30 P.M., depending on your family’s routine and on the baby’s own internal clock. But within a couple of weeks, you should be able to tell what type of sleeper your baby is. For example: Is she naturally an early riser or a late riser? Does she show signs of sleepiness or tiredness earlier in the evening or later on?

Whatever time you settle on as his bedtime, try to stick to it pretty consistently, thought you don’t have to be a slave to routine. If your family is out visiting friends or family and your late return delays your baby’s bedtime a bit for one night, it’s not the end of the world, even though it’s certainly not desirable. Try to plan so that this sort of interruption to the routine doesn’t happen, but if it does, don’t be upset by it. You can get your baby’s schedule back on track the next night.

Preparing for a Birthday Party

Next month will be my month birth. I don’t have planned to have a big party because for me, birthday party is just for kids. I might have little party but only close friends, and my family would be there. I have checked already my karaoke system and so far; it is still good. However, I only have one microphone right now. I want to buy that shotgun mic because it looks so light, and I guess it has also good-quality sounds like the normal size microphone. I will try to look for it online, and I will compare the price from the musical store nearby.

Hording Toys

Sometimes, when your child is unwilling to release control of toys, he may hoard them. If he is hoarding toys, she is not really playing with them. You may see that he is simply collecting toys and holding on to as many as he can. Some children literally carry handfuls of toy pieces or cram toys into their pockets. Alternatively, he may be putting them in a hiding place or personal place to prevent other children from playing with them. You will need to intervene and help her make choices and then become involved with play.

What Should You Know As A Mom?

The mother’s responsibilities do not lie on the vicious circle of feeding her kids, making sure that they grow well as adults alone, it spreads even more than that. If you are a single mom you will have to handle even more. You must have to work hard to earn your bread and to take care of all other expenses. However, spending for daily food and shelter would be a demanding situation if you are the sole parent for your kids. You must learn to take care of your kids and handle your work pressure at the same time. You can find much useful info about being a perfect mom at moms.com.

Why is mom’s love so special?

If you had the opportunity to spend your childhood with your mom then you might remember how much you need your mom in every occasion whether it was happy, sad or excited moments.

•   You might even remember the times when you needed your mom’s hug when you were terrified of the dark or when a thunder crashed in the middle of the night.

•   You might even remember how safe you felt when your mom embraced you and said that everything was fine and you need not worry about anything.

•   During such scenario, it might not be possible for you to overcome your fear and grow as a confident individual.

•   As the first teacher of the child, a mother has various responsibilities. You are responsible for molding your child as a caring and respectable individual.

•   You have to imbibe the best qualities in your child while he or she is growing as the child tends to grow by grasping all the good and bad things by seeing the people with whom they spend most of the time.

•   As a mother, you might be spending a lot of time with your child and hence make sure you stay a role model for your child.

•   It is essential for you to make an array of sacrifices like spending some time for yourself, not attending the party of your close friend as you have a baby to nurse or much more.

•   However, these sacrifices would seem meaningful when you see that you child has grown as a responsible kid and make you proud.

Hence, make sure that you play the role of a mom to the fullest and feel confident that you are doing a better job.

The World’s Largest Music Store

My sister-in-law sent another photo of my nephews. I so love it because the big brother teaches his little brother to play a guitar, and it seemed that the little soul enjoyed strumming the guitar. Well, I won’t be surprised if this little boy also likes music because all of us love music, and most of us can play guitars. So, it runs in our blood for being a musician. Do you know that musician’s friend the world’s largest online music gear company also ships now here in the Philippines? I was delighted when I read this on their site, but it depends on the products. My son probably didn’t know this yet. I know he purchased sometimes musical accessories online, and for sure, if he knows this store, he will shop there.

For Kids Only

Do you know that OshKosh B’Gosh has 143 outlet stores in the USA that sell top-quality children’s clothing at 30% below retail prices? I have learned this from a friend who has small kids and OshKosh B’Gosh is her favorite store for her kid’s clothing. There is also OshKosh B’Gosh here in the Philippines, but for ordinary citizens, they don’t shop at this store because prices are more expensive compared to the local stores. I honestly like OshKosh because of the quality of their product, plus the designs are so cute, and it makes you kids more attractive.

The photos below are from OshKosh B’Gosh website. I love them for my handsome nephew.

High School Class Rings

I am glad that my youngest son is in high school now. A few more years and he will be graduated in high school. I don’t mind if he could not get any honor. What is important to me is to finish the high school. Anyhow, while I was surfing on the World Wide Web, I have found very nice high school class rings for boys and girls. If I will see my son’s teacher next week, I will tell him about this online store that sells high school class rings. And if you are looking for this, you can find it from this website. Anyhow, I bookmark the store so I could check it anytime I want.

A Positive Attitude

Babies may not be able to talk or comprehend everything you say, but they do have a great ability to sense how you are feeling. Your baby will be able to tell if you are anxious or relaxed; therefore, a good attitude is very important. If you tense up because you’re dreading the possibility that he won’t go right to sleep, your baby will sense your tension and react to it. If you rush because you’re in a hurry to get him to sleep so you can enjoy dinner with your spouse, or because another child is waiting for your to tuck him in, or because you’re simply, eager to relax alone, you won’t communicate the peacefulness and ease that you want to convey to your baby.

His attitude is important too. Though babies can’t form the thought that older kids can. “If I go to sleep now I might miss out on something fun,” they can and often do feel separated from their parents by being put to bed away from where their parents are and where things are happening. It’s very helpful to make going to bed a very positive and enjoyable experience for your baby, one that he’ll learn to look forward to.

Troubleshooting

It is not going to be easy. And your baby’s napping schedule is sure to be altered at some point. In the real world, naptime may not always be the scene of perfection we see on television or in the movies. Human beings just are not made that way. A baby may decide one day, “I just don’t feel like a nap” or “Who needs a three-hour nap, anyway?” Babies also refuse to tell time, read the baby expert’s opinions, or decide to make your life easier. They will sometimes just refuse to get to sleep, wake up after five or ten minutes, get sleepy an hour early, and do anything they can think of to screw up your bedtime routine.

Toddler sleeping

The golden rule here is to stay flexible. You just can’t tell a baby what she is and is not supposed to do. If a baby decides it’s time for a trip to “nappie-land” in the middle of feeding, off she’ll go without buying a ticket from you.

A Nap Can’t Replace Nighttime Sleep

It is not either/or. It is both. Your baby needs both naptime sleep and nighttime sleep. Though both are important and once can help make up for the lack of the other, neither is a real replacement for the other. Your baby needs both. You need to see that he gets them. Napping is an adjunct to sleeping. It is not a substitute. If your baby didn’t sleep well last night, a good nap today is essential. A good nap is essential under any circumstances until she’s three or older. But don’t think she can readily get by with a few hours of sleep a night because she is napping well during the day.
