Alive, Awake and Active!!! The moment you put to bed and hold your little bundle of joy in your arms, a whole lot of thoughts, ideas and imaginations let loose in your head like a rollercoaster out of control. There's a lot to be done, but the most important thing in our opinion is that you sit back, relax and take in every moment of your child's #firstdays , the #firstyears because they'll be gone (your child grown) so fast you'll never know how. Do only the basics, the child for whom you move mountains at this stage is oblivious to that and mainly content gazing into your eyes. Why not indulge yourself a little and relish the moment?
There are hidden fears as to whether we are doing it right or not. There are times we're tempted to make comparisons with other children. We say not to worry because most of the time, what we fret and fear about never happens.
Our simple guide to allay your fears is our 3A's -Alive! Awake!! Active!!!
So if you want to know how your cutie is doing follow the 3A's. • Check that he's breathing. If he is, he's alive.
• Check that he's eyes are open and conscious of the surroundings. If he is, he's awake.
• Check that he feeds well, pees and poops well, plays and responds to gestures well, moves his limbs / moves about well. If he does, he's active.
The level of activity varies with the age of the child. With this you can rest assured that you are doing a great job caring for your baby.
Note every child develops at his own pace and time. Just ensure you have an enabling environment with lots of love and support. Your child will be all grown in no time you'll miss his #daysoflittlebeginnings . . .
