Disciplining an Emotional Baby

@ 11 months 3 weeks

Yoohooo.. Ryan finally gets the clean bill. When I sponged him earlier, I noticed the rashes are all gone. I’m so glad and thankful that he’s back to his hyperactive self.

I am not sure if it was really Roseola. I’ll confirm with paed when we check in again next week for MMR jab. Then I’ll be able to share more on that bit.

Well, well, Ryan will turn 1 year old in about a week’s time. At this phase, I couldn’t emphasis more the need to incorporate ‘good discipline’ into Ryan’s upbringing. Being a parent is really not easy. I always question myself if my way of bringing up Ryan is the right way, if not the best. I am glad to have gone into blogosphere. I got to know so many blogger parents that are not stingy in sharing their experience. I’ve learnt so much from them. Thanks!

Back to my little rascal. Ryan has become such a emotional baby these days. When he was still the little blur baby, he could easily get away regardless what he did wrong just by flashing his cheeky smile to us. Now that he is a toddler soon, we just have to be more firmed with him.

Nowadays instead of his cheeky smile, he flash us his pitiful cry instead. A slight raise of voice he’ll start his Mmm-Mmm-Mmm (pitiful crying) episode. Aaahh.. He’ll turn to the supposedly firmed mummy, hold tight, rest his head on mummy’s shoulder and start Mmm-Mmm-Mmm (those pitiful cry). What happened after then? Mummy stroke stroke and ‘sayang’ the crying baby again leh… Aiks.. who can resist a “manja” baby???

The whole idea of disciplining Ryan is really not intended to punish him, rather it is with the objective to teach him what is right and what is wrong. No parent wants their baby to go up a spoilt brat, do they?

On the other hand, sometimes I just wonder if I have been too stern with Ryan and that contributes to the reason why he favours everyone else in the house better than his mummy (so sad). Even Linda (my maid) is observant enough to share with me last night that she could see my little monster is scared of his mummy. Why? Why? Why? Am I such a scary mummy? No choice leh.. somebody has to be the disciplinary teacher in the house.

Ryan likes to flip through his board books nowadays. After flipping through them, he’ll keep them all back into the yellow bag
