My LO has become quite the screamer o_O Apparently he has been screaming at daycare but never really at home. HOWEVER, lately he has been screaming a lot more at home and little at daycare. He screams when I have him in his high chair and I'm in the kitchen, when I'm about to feed him baby food (which he doesn't like anymore), and when we put him in his car seat.
I was thinking it had something to do with his 5th tooth coming in but nope.
My LO has been doing that for about a month now. I just let him know that I am going to work and will be back to pick him up. I also learned not to "walk away" from him (if I were to leave him in the living room in his saucer) but to walk backwards so he still sees me....and WHEN he does cry I just talk loud to let him know that I'm still there. It's been weird but I've heard that every LO goes through this.View Thread
I was picking up my LO from daycare the other day, and the director told me something that has been on my mind. She (the director) said that each time she takes a new couple on a tour of the Center and they go into the Infant room, my LO will smile and flirt with the Wife but then cry when he sees the Husband. My LO is ALWAYS a happy baby and will smile and flirt with everyone, but I guess I haven't noticed how he reacts to Men. The only "men" that my LO is around is my dad (his grandpa), sometimes his dad (boyfriend) and his brothers (LO's uncle).
The only thing I could think of would be the size issue; meaning they daunting and large size could scare him.....OR that they don't sense them as a good person? (ok ok maybe I'm stretching the last one).
That's a big toss up. Why exactly doesn't your DH NOT like the monkey theme? If the less you have to spend on decorations and gifts then the more you can concentrate on the place you will be hosting the party and the food. I personally don't think that anybody would remember what your LO wore when he was 3 months old unless you or DH bring it up. I wish you the best of luck and hope you come to a conclusion....soon.View Thread
I was told the same thing during my son's 6mo appt. I was told to cut back on his formula intake (6oz to 5oz) and that was WITHOUT any form of baby food. He has always been pretty lengthy (20.5 at birth and now 28in at 9 mo) but the PA said that he would become "obese". Yes, she used the word obese to my 6mo son because he had gained so much early on. I of course felt that I was being a horrible (first time) mother by feeding him too much so I cut back.
He is now 9mo at 19lbs 7oz and is still 28in but they say he is too thin but in the normal range. He eats about a jar (depending on the food) during each sitting, several puffs, a couple teething cookies, and of course some "adult" foods.
My only advice would be, YOU know what YOUR daughter does and how she handles the food. Your dr only sees her every 3mos so don't worry.
I've also gotten remarks about his head being large and that he'll have "speech & developmental issues" later. Trust me, I wasn't too happy when I heard that.View Thread
