Baby 1 Year Old – Happy Birthday!

Monday, May 30th, 2011

Happy Birthday! Baby Aiden has reached the first milestone on his first birthday! It was a joyous occasion as Lena went about to celebrate in a big way! Yes, it seems like so fast a year has passed. It was a very busy year and we could see the progress and changes month by month as baby moves on to face new challenges.

Happy Birthday Aiden!

There is still more to come of course. Each baby has their own pace of development and ours is no different. One thing for sure, he really likes to laugh and when he is happy, get ready for a real shriek of a time. And if you happen to stand too near, well, even the hard of hearing would have no problem hearing! (more…)

Baby 6 Months Old

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

Yes, baby has crossed the 6 month old mark! He is now 0.5 years old! Or if you prefer fractals, ½ year old! It’s been a blast to see baby grow before our very eyes. His facial features looked very much different from a few months ago. My wife asked me to take many photos because baby features will change over the mont

hs rather quickly. He is now so adorable and my cousin sister and friends (mostly girls only, guys just don’t seem to have the paternal instinct) just want to carry him because he is so cute! (more…)

Voltaren for General Muscle Aches, Strains and Inflammation

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

Carrying baby around can really make your ligament and muscle ache! And I think I found the remedy, using Voltaren by Novartis. Some two months ago, I over strained my right arm muscle and ligament when I carried my baby for one plus hours straight because he didn’t want to sleep. I guess I spoilt my baby flat! Ever si

nce straining my right arm muscle and ligament I don’t carry baby to sleep anymore.

Initially I didn’t use any medicine and my muscle and ligaments did not recover even after a week! So I started applying the Voltaren Emulgel by Novartis. This medicine is good for relieving pain, swelling and combating inflammation. It has an active ingredient, diclofenac diethylamin. I used it to relieve my muscle ache during my attempt on Mount Kinabalu which I had sore muscles for an entire week for my challenge effort! (more…)

Baby sleeping

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

It is always nice to see baby sleeping peacefully. While they are still a baby, they need lots of sleeping time. I didn’t realize children need lots of sleep till right to their teens! No wonder I need quite a fair bit of sleep during those years! All along I thought the average sleep required was about 8 hours. Though while I was younger I needed about 9 hours or more of sleeping time per day. Now with this chart from BabyCentre, I realize more sleeping time is required for children and youth! (more…)

Baby 5 ½ Months Old

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

My baby is 5½ Old and there are interesting changes. In fact some of the changes are very noticeable week by week. He is learning new expression! I heard him blow raspberries for a few days and then stopped. Next he was screeching with glee! Apparently he learned it from his cousin sister who started the high pitch screech which turn was mimicked by the other two children my mom-in-law was babysitting and in turn was imitated by my baby! Oh, children are so impressionable! You just have to be aware of how you behave as they would pick up your mannerism! (more…)

Baby 4 months old

Monday, October 4th, 2010

Now my baby is 4 months old and there were some noticeable changes in his baby development. According to the Baby Centre website newsletter that I signed up, there is some amazing baby development that would surely surprise us.

I do find the baby centre newsletter informative however they do advise there are some caveats and not all baby develop at the same rate. Nevertheless the newsletters provide some useful guide and hints on what to expect as parents.

So let’s see how my baby fares against what was sent in by the newsletter. (more…)

Trimming / Cutting Baby Fingernails

Friday, October 1st, 2010

Cutting baby fingernails is no easy task! Something that you do easily with trimming your own fingernail is another matter when you try to snip baby’s fingernail. With a baby, everything becomes minute and you have to become extra careful! (more…)

Baby 3 Months Old

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010

Baby is 3 months old, and boy has he grown. He is getting heavier now and carrying him around would surely build up my arm muscles without having to go to the gym! My sis-in-law already complaining about her aching arms, but she sure enjoys carrying him around as do baby too!

Now baby at 3 months old, there are many things me as parent need to watch out for and also other baby development issues. (more…)

Colic in Infants and Colic Cure

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

It is certainly distressing when there is colic in infants and there are no perfect colic cure for babies with this condition. Just last night I experience my baby who didn’t want to sleep and tried several various ways to sooth the baby and console him to sleep. It wasn’t easy and for some infants who has colic there isn’t any perfect colic remedies available. (more…)

Baby Night Out

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

It’s baby night out! My wife’s mother was celebrating her birthday at Overseas Restaurant so baby was tagging along in the baby carrier. It was an exciting time for baby, a chance to look at new things. Well mostly new lights. He likes lights and the restaurant was full of it.

At on to further distraction and stimulation are the other aunties and uncles who dote on him what more did he want? (more…)
