Your 3-month-old: Week 2

How your baby's growing:

Babies simply love to be touched. In fact, they thrive on it — touch is a critical part of growth and development. All that skin-to-skin contact not only helps you and your baby bond, but it's comforting when she's upset and soothing when she's irritable.

Nurture your baby's sense of touch with a variety of materials, such as fake fur, felt, and terry cloth. Your baby will probably try to eat everything, so choose carefully and don't leave her alone with anything that could come apart in her mouth. Look for books like Pat the Bunny that make reading a tactile experience.


Hey ya'll... Morning to ya'll..

What's up today? I feel very well to day even a bit tired and sleepy since sleep late last night. My baby was happy besides me and her daddy. Well, it's time to wish happy holiday to all friends out there who celebrating Hari Raya Aidilfitri and for Malaysia Happy 54th Independence day. This will be so long public holiday for this year. Love it so much.

In addition, don't forget to be so much careful in this holiday especially who are back to their hometown..(^_^) Just for a reminder. Peace. God bless all of us. Amen.

Toys for 3- to 6-month-olds

As he enters this stage, a baby discovers how much fun his own hands can be now that they're no longer clenched in a fist. He can suck his fingers, and use them to grasp a toy that has been placed in his hands. He has begun to reach for toys. He soon learns to pass a toy back and forth between his hands and rotate his wrist to inspect it from all sides, usually before popping it into his mouth.

Make sure that all toys are safe for chewing — check labels! And never attach a toy to a crib or playpen with elastic, which could end up strangling or entrapping your baby. By 6 months your baby can probably sit up, giving him a new perspective on life and making him the center of his own clanging, colorful, ever-changing world.

Activity center: This is basically a rack that comes with dangling toys and / or from which you can hang toys of your own choosing. It's only for a baby who is still horizontal, but it can make life more interesting while he is. Your baby can bat at the toys, pull them, spin them, and rattle them. He'll probably begin to lose interest in his activity center once he reaches 5 months or so and can push up on his hands and knees.

Lightweight rattles: Babies love making noise. Give him a rattle and watch him shake it up. Put on music with a strong beat so he can accompany it — babies this age generally love music and are just learning to appreciate rhythm. Some rattles are clear, letting your baby in on what's making all that cool noise.

Activity bars: These are bars hung with dangling, squeaky, tuggable plastic toys that fit across an infant seat, car seat, or stroller. This means that on long car trips or stroller rides, your baby can divert himself by exploring all the interesting noisy, grippable objects in front of him.

Soft stuffed animals: This is the age at which many children begin forming an attachment to a plush animal. Key criteria include soft and cuddly. You don't want anything with wire ears or tail that could poke through the fabric and hurt your child. You do want dolls and animals with stitched-on features. Soft toys with plastic eyes and mouth are potential choking hazards. Also off-limits are features such as bells, buttons, ribbons, and yarn that your baby can yank off and stuff into his mouth.

Squeaky rubber toys: Anything a baby can grip and squeak is usually popular with this age group. These toys are perfect for the tub. Expect to hear these squeaks — and your baby's happy squeals — often.

Board books: Reading to a child at any age will pay off. (For more, take our reading quiz.) And board books can withstand mouthing, drooling, and most other forms of baby love. Listening to your voice helps your baby develop an ear for the cadence of language. And varying the pitch of your voice using accents, singing, and vocalizing will make reading together much more interesting to your child. See our list of recommended board books and books for babies.

Colorful teething rings: There's nothing like gnawing on a soft plastic ring when your gums are sore. Store teethers in the refrigerator to provide cold relief when your baby needs it. Avoid putting them in the freezer. Neither the teether nor your baby's mouth is designed to withstand freezing temperatures.

Activity quilts and playmats: These quilts can smooth a journey with your baby, whether you're going across the street or across the country. Spread one on the floor and your baby has a clean, familiar surface to play on wherever you go. Hooks sewn along the side mean you can attach his favorite toys and bring them, too.

Your 3-month-old: Week 1

How your baby's growing:

Your baby has been able to recognize you since he was just a few days old, but now he may actually be able to show it. About half of babies this age begin to exhibit an obvious recognition of their parents.

Your baby will probably continue to smile at strangers, especially when they look him straight in the eye and coo or talk to him. But he's starting to sort out who's who in his life, and he definitely prefers you, your partner, and perhaps a few others.

Your baby may quiet down and make eye contact with you, or he may search for you in a room and move his arms in excitement or smile when he finds you. He may even find your scent calming and comforting.

Happy 3 months old my babby Clovey Queenly. Mummy and daddy hope that you are always in a good condition and God always watch over you every second. Happy growing up. Mum & dad love you so much.

God bless.

Your 2-month-old: Week 4

How your baby's growing:

Reading to your baby, even at this young age, will pay off. Hearing you read helps your baby develop an ear for the cadence of spoken language. Varying the pitch of your voice, using accents, and singing will make the connection between you and your baby that much more interesting.

If your baby looks the other way or loses interest while you're reading, just try doing something else and give her time to rest. Take your cue from your baby's responses.

You'll find plenty of good books to read to your baby — such as Goodnight Moon, Good Night Gorilla, and The Big Red Barn. Choose board books that have large, bright pictures and simple text — or even wordless books with pictures for you to narrate. At this point you don't have to be slavish to age guidelines. Books designed for older children can captivate a baby if they have clear, crisp images and bright colors.

Your 2-month-old: Week 3

How your baby's growing:

He's no Fred Astaire yet, but your little one's movements are getting a bit more coordinated. You'll notice that the jerky arm and leg movements of his newborn days have given way to smoother, more circular motions, especially when he's watching people.

Give your baby enough space to stretch and move his arms and legs. Lay a blanket on the floor and let him move as he pleases. These movements can help your baby strengthen and tone his developing muscles. On his tummy, he'll start to push off with his legs — the first step in getting ready to crawl.

As I saw the latest of my baby development, she is more like to communicate with people, especially mummy, daddy, and grandpama... Last night, she cried as loud as she could. So pity. I thought she want more milk, but her stomach windy.. Right after I put some medicine on her stomach, she can sleep until this morning.. Hope everything will be alright in grandpama house..God, please watch over her every second. Amen.

1st day with new car seat...

Hey ya'll..wat's up today?

Times flies so fast today, the clock shows it is almost 10am.. This morning, I drive my daughter to my PaMa-in-law. I am so pity of her because today is the first time she sat in her car seat which we has bought last night. Woke up early in the morning, I took my shower and get ready to work and of course bring Queen to Likas. Starting from today, I'll become super mummy to my dearest daughter since everyday have to send and fetch her to/ from Likas.
Well, I don't know 'till what day but for this time this will the our routine. I do HOPE that my baby will be alright with this situation everyday and could understand for whatever we are doing for her.
I took this picture while drive her to my in-law house. She show me that she will be okay inside her new car seat and feel comfortable with it.

I am alright mummy....Don't worry... I love you!
