One of the most important parts of raising a baby is to make them learn several things with time. The best way to make babies learn is through playing. Babies enjoy playing games and in the process their senses are developed. The most natural way to make babies develop their senses is to provide them with learning toys. For the six months the senses of the babies are not properly developed. They have fuzzy hearing, blurred vision and weak hands because the senses are not clear. Learning toys are specially designed for the development of senses in babies.
It is said that a mother can understand her baby’s need or feeling even if the baby remains silent. Well, it is true that a mother can easily understand whether her child is happy or sad or nervous. But there might be more complicated things. Suppose a baby is suffering from stomach ache. A mother can understand that her baby is not comfortable and he or she is suffering from some kind of problem. But is it possible for the mother to understand what the problem exactly is until and unless her baby puts it in words?
What's the old saying? Something like, "necessity is the mother of invention." Necessity = having a baby who crawls everywhere and climbs everything. Baby proofing is a daily process in my house, and I'm sure you can relate. That means that sometimes I have to be creative. For example, I was sort of hoping that my daughter would ignore the garbage can next to our entertainment center. It's small and white, I thought that maybe it would blend in.
Wrong. My daughter was into that faster than I could say, "Don't eat your fingernails!" So it moved.
So I’m on this journey again, the one where women in my position have to fight for what we want when we give birth to our children.
So far I have been told I was insane for wanting a VBA2C. I for obvious reasons refused to see that ob again.
I was told to see him again twice and have refused. Finally yesterday I went to the VBAC clinic not actually knowing why, even they asked my why I was there. That annoyed me, you made the appointment, not me I just turned up, I don’t know why I am here!
I think as we parents need to tackle the issue that the majority of children are consuming their time watching television or playing computer games, now, I'm not saying never to allow these past times, but I think that time should be allocated every day for a 'reading' period. I am a mother of four and everyday after picking up my children I make sure that we have at least an hour or two - everyone has a book suited to their age range (full of facts, activities and stories) and I encourage discussion, help with reading and try to have short time where we are all together.
In modern Britain when parents are expecting a baby it is quite natural and almost expected that parents will attend anti-natal courses to prepare them for the birth and maybe the first 6 months of their child’s life. Somehow however there is still a feeling in modern society that once you are through this initial stage of your child’s life the rest come naturally and that parenting is an instinctive skill that we should all have.
