Ultimate Comfort makes a Happy Baby & Happy Mummy !

As of June, our little cupcake here is 10 months old ! 2 more months to end her babyhood !! She has become more sociable with familiar faces. She will return you with a sweet smile when you look and talk to her in her eyes.

Friends have been asking me what did I do to make Vera to be so smiley ! They have seen me posting pictures of her on Facebook with her sweetest & biggest smile she can give me. One point which can never go wrong is to have the mobile phone with me all the time. The camera is always on standby mode to capture those priceless smiles  ! Apart from that, let me share some tips on how I have a Happy Baby !

Here are some tips for a Happy Baby :

- Set a ROUTINE for the baby; I feel that it is important to have one to serve me and . Both Xav and Vera were trained to be on routine feeding and sleep are almost similar. Babies love routine and I find that it allows me to anticipate the demands of the baby. At least the routine helps me to narrow down the possibilities of why is she cranky.

- AID the baby in their milestones; I observed and realised that after Vera has been on her fours and discovering that she could actually move around to reach for the things she wants, pushes herself up to be seated, next comes another major milestone, STANDING UP  ! Vera has attempted and is always pushing herself to stand up ! This is where I aided her, I gave her my arm as support, she gave me a big, wide smile when she managed to pull herself up using my arm as her support.

Look mummy ! I am trying to stand !
With regards to fine motor skills, if you are a new mum, you may want to note that prolong wearing of mittens may hinder the baby's fine motor skills. Yes, they will scratch with their soft and thin nails, so trim them often ! I learnt my lesson from Xav, he wore mittens till he was 4 months old and his fine motor skills were pretty much affected.

Hence, for Vera, we did away with the mittens as soon as she hit one month old. I am training her fine motor skills through eating Happy Puffs ! She needs to pick up the puff with her pincer grip and put into her mouth.

How would you like to be rewarded with the puff that you managed to pick up ! YAY !

Spot the puff !
 - PLAY time ; She has her love for certain toys. Since birth, the Ferris Wheel we bought from Hokkaido is her top favourite. She loves to see it turning round and round.

I sing to her everyday and babies love to hear familiar songs. Of the whole Letterland CD, she loves Annie Apple most ! Each time, I started singing Annie Apple swings in the tree ... ... ", she would wave her hands excitedly at me. I added on some simple actions too ! Watch that giggle !

She loves to "fly" in the air too with me carrying her up !

She is much into exploring objects with her mouth. Anything that is within her reach, she puts them into her mouth ! Anything that soothes her gums, go ahead and ask her if it tastes nice ! She will show u her smile to acknowledge.

; one of the most important factor of all ! It has got to be Drypers Wee Wee Dry to keep her butt cheeks fresh and dry !  Seriously, I love Drypers and it's the only brand you can find in my place.
Since birth, she is using Drypers for both day and night. This was our previous review. With the factors, affordability, design and how much can Drypers diapers can hold. My verdict was THUMBS UP for this new and improved Drypers Wee Wee Dry !

Vera wore the diaper overnight, for 12 hours, yes, diaper was full but best part of all, it doesn't leak ! Dryness and absorbency was enhanced. How does this sound to the moms, no need for diaper change in the night at all tantamount to a better night sleep.

The 4 Natural plant extracts; Vitamin E, Chamomile, Olive Extract & Aloe Vera, promoting healthy skin, keeping the baby's skin soft.

With new animal prints on the diapers !

The elastic band stretches for comfort, making sure the diapers are well fitted and does not pinch baby’s waist and thighs, allowing freedom of movement.

Of course not forgetting the Flexi-Tape that is specially design to allow multi-refastening, making diaper changing a breeze.

- Healthy Food and treats; I am trying out different vegetables for her in her weaning menu. I tried broccoli and she is taking it well. Latest menu was threadfin with spinach porridge.

The above are 5 simple tips to a happy baby. Do share with me your tips !
