LittleMiss Car Seat Update

It’s been two months since I posted our family car seat outburst so here’s an update. LittleMiss no longer argue’s whenever I put her down and even manage to have a good snooze. How did we do it? Stay strong. Yes, it really is difficult to see your child crying (my heart is torn to pieces when this happen) but having your child strapped in the car seat is the safest way to travel. Ignore. She cried in her seat begging me to get her – ignore! V would start singing and tell stories but we all ignored her and she eventually stopped and started laughing with whatever Kuya V was doing. Mirror. 6ambabies at twitter gave me the  advise. It did wonders! She was busy for a good 20 minutes staring at herself 🙂 Toys. Something to keep her busy.   We don’t have any plans just yet on moving her to a forward facing seat specially after reading that rear-facing seat is the safest choice. Read links below. The Swedish (rear facing) car seat …

Car seat outbursts

This is not the usual cutie patootie posts about our LittleMiss. I don’t drive so I always sit at the back with the kids, C and I find the seating arrangement convenient so I can attend to whatever request V and LittleMiss needs (water, food, tissue, breastfeed – yes I’ve found a way to feed LittleMiss while both of us are buckled in the back). We bought V his car seat when he was around 3 years old and he never had a meltdown while seated. LittleMiss however started fighting getting strapped on to her car seat, carrier and stroller at 11 months. Most of the time I give in and end up letting her sit in my lap. Why? She starts crying, screaming and vomiting that we end up not having a fun family day. Once she ended having a mild fever from her car seat outburst from Al Qusais to Dubai Mall. Photos below taken while we were waiting for Dad C to come back. As soon as I put her down this happens. …

Chloe Isabelle – 11 months

Entering her 11 month a tooth has popped out, and this week just before we say goodbye to May a new one is coming out. She’s no longer happy just sitting in one place, you will find her strolling around the house. We didn’t buy her a walker and she still managed to find a way to walk 🙂 with the help of chairs and tables. She’s still very much happy drinking from my breast milk station and I don’t have any plans to stop. At 11 months she’s still a happy EBF babe. Hello pearly whites! A month before we celebrate her birthday we welcome 2 pearly whites.

Chloe Isabelle – 10 months

Where did time go? I woke up this morning to her cry for breast milk and realized that she’s 10 months today. 10 months! I’ve been busy preparing for her birthday party back home (hopefully everything will work out!) and still trying to figure out where to celebrate Manila or Davao? Finally found time to bake her a cake -Vanilla Chiffon Cake with Carambar Caramel and Chocolate Ganache to mark this special day. She’s been keeping all of us busy and demanding our attention. LittleMiss milestones: -Crawling fast and walking around the house with the help of furniture a -Still no teeth. -Can spend a good 10 minutes just tearing papers -Cries and mumbles when we say “No” -She’s enjoying eating by herself and actually eats a lot more compared to me spoon feeding her. -Raise her hands and wave when she hears a music or when standing up she does the “Pocoyo Dance” -Sleeps longer for nap (reason why I managed to bake cake today) A daughter is the happy memories of the past, …

Chloe Isabelle – 8 months

She is 8 months old today! This LittleMiss has taken over our lives in happy busy way. She’s been literally all over the place refusing to stay in her playpen and would demand to be carried or held up for her to practice walking. Oh yes! she has been doing a lot of standing and moving very fast, one minute you’ll see her quietly lying in bed the next second she already manage to sit up without any help. And she’s been mastering what V would call “pretend cry” to get our attention, the moment I let her play inside the playpen she’ll do this hysterical “they’re abusing me” kind of cry and by the time she’s in my arms she’s wearing the sweetest smile. at 8 months old: she’s eating 2 full meals a day (broccoli, sweet potato, potato, carrot, chicken breast, apple, pear, banana, plum, green peas, organic brown rice, organix multigrain and hipp nibbles) sit up without any help from us push herself up to stand hold things in each of her …

Chloe Isabelle – 6 months

  A month back we entered the world of messy food fun in baby world!   Her first official food on the table with us was boiled pumpkin, she was not too happy eating it but she did have fun squeezing the mash and putting some on her hair, face, arms and to the floor. It was such a big mess but the little miss sure did have fun. She can now sit up for more than an hour but I still surround her with pillows since we had an incident of her falling. We also have to say bye bye to her bouncy chair since she’s always leaning forward to grab things. As of today she is 6 months and 18 days, she manage to move around doing a belly crawl + turning to back & front. She one noisy little miss with all the screaming, moaning and oohing, when this happen V calls her a dinosaur – Chloe-saurus. I find myself very busy attending to her needs as she seem to be more …

Touch Therapy – Baby Massage

At least once in our life we have all experienced the magic of touch. Touch in the form of that one single pat in the back that congratulates your for doing good job; when a friend holds your hand after crying out all your troubles assures you that she’s always there for you – the magic of touch.   Chloe and I along with other Mum’s from the Breastfeeding Q&A UAE group won a complimentary baby massage course from The International Association of Infant Massage and Infant Massage U.S.A. with Nurse Midwife and Trained Instructor Sahar at Loving Care.   Everyday life can be so stressful. We may sigh and say “I need a good massage.” It’s not only us adults who feel stress but our young ones as well specially our babies who’s only way to communicate with us is with a cry; oh how frustrating can it be when no one seems to understand what you need little baby.     Benefits of Infant Massage: Helps relieves discomfort from gas, colic and constipation Improves Blood …
