Creative exploration is an ongoing process from the minute your little one is born. First through observation, and now they are beginning to put what they are learning into practice. Now at a stage of purposefully picking up toys, banging them, dropping them and chewing on them and really spending time examining the items in front of them, determining the relationship they have with the item and its purpose.
This is a really great time to sit back and watch your baby interact with their world, every day they are busying themselves learning and exploring their environment as their senses work hard transmitting information to their brain allowing them to creatively interact with the things around them.
Teething pain doesn’t sleep, and neither will bub! We don’t blame them either, for anyone who has ever suffered a toothache, you know what we are talking about. The pressure of those little teeth pushing through is enough to wake your baby at all hours of the night. Sometimes all we can do is to be there with them, giving cuddles and comfort whether the pain hits day or night.Night time teething not only affects bub routines and behaviours, but mum and dad also suffer trying to function on sleepless nights. By working to maintain sleep habits you can help them through and maybe catch a few zzz’s yourself.
Have you noticed some pretty sudden changes with bub lately? Maybe she is a little more irritable and grumblier, maybe not sleeping for as long, he has started drooling and worryingly seems to have stopped wanting to feed. Rest assured, your babies lack of appetite is all part of their teething journey, not a sign that you are doing anything wrong, just that he is having some real trouble working her way through the pain as her little teeth make their way through.
Sometimes during teething, bubs can seem to self-wean leading you to believe changes are coming. In our Mizzie World blog we have a look at self-weaning during teething and offer some tips to help with nutrition and keeping your feeding journey on track, no matter what your chosen method.
With water being similar to womb conditions, babies tend to be naturally relaxed when it comes to the water and love to splash around in the bath or the pool.
