Discipline for throwing toys

Well would you belive it he's been a model child all day bless him...playgroup was a dream he didn't throw a thing and he didn't throw anything out of the bath tonight either I'm so proud of him (and me lol) it might be, probably will be a diff story tomorrow but he's obviously starting to realise the conseqences of his actions. I should really should post on here more often it's not the first time a problem's been resolved the day after posting lol. PTxxx

Discipline for throwing toys

Thanks everyone...yes he throws his cup too although we seem to have overcome this at least. When I think he's had enough I ask him if he's finished and if he has he closes the lid and I ask him to give it to mummy (if he's in his chair) or I ask him to put it back where he had it from and 99% of the time he does I tell him what a good boy he is and he claps his hands in agreement. Re the toys I'm not sure what triggers it but once he's thrown one toy he'll throw one after the other in anger bec...

Discipline for throwing toys

I want my child to respect his things so throwing toys or anything except a ball is a no no. At home if he throws something I tell him "no you are not to throw this" and then put it out of reach. My problem is what to do at playgroup? I can't really take away toys he's thrown and deprive another child of playing nicely with it but if I don't, how do I remain consistant? I'm wandering wether I should take him away from the toys by taking him home but at 17 months is it too early for him to unders...

Just a quickie about Eczema

Have posted on FZ in yonks lol...this feels weird lol...any way.... Indiechick hun if it gets worse after using the creams I'd go back to the doctors regardless of time scale. It doesn't matter how many times you have to see your doc if it means getting it sorted...it only shows your concern for your child. If the creams are keeping it under control but you see no improvement after week then again go back to the doc's. Sam's 15 months now and still has flare ups treated with a Hydrocortisone cre...

Weight issue ???

Sam is 7 months and weighs 21lb 3oz!!!!!!! He's now up to the 91st centile on his weight chart but only on the 50th centile on his height chart(he's 70cms) He's not crawling yet so there's a fare change he could start to loose the weight once he's active but I'd like to know if anyone thinks I'm over feeding him. He loves his food and eats anything I give him...bless 7am - 7oz bottle 10am - Breakfast Heinz Creamy porridge (9 x dessert spoons mixed with equal amount of water). 3oz bottle 1pm - Lu...

Calling All Mums - FZ Survey on Estimated Baby Weights

1 - I was measured by tape, by several midwifes and all predicted Sam to have a high 6's to low 7's birth weight. 2 - I was scanned 2 days before the birth (3 weeks before my due date) and Sam was already estimated at being low 8's and predicted to be high 8's at birth. 3 - The scanned weight shocked me but his heavier than predicted weight didn't worry me as such. To be honest I dismissed it and still belived the midwifes because I wanted him to be small for an easier delivery. 4 - Sam's birth ...

Bumbo alternative

According to the website (FAQ section) it can be used for babies 3-18 months. Being able to sit unaided isn't a requirement but being able to hold their head is. I think we're going to get one for Sam anyway and I'll let FZ know the verdict PT xxx

Bumbo alternative

I take it as that's a no then Do you think it's a good alternative? I know it looks horrible but it looks practical and safe. Some of you have said babies arch their backs in a Bumbo and fall out PT xxx

Rolling over/Sitting up etc

Hi t....Sam's not fond of being on his tummy either he has about 5mins every day while I put cream on his back but after that he gets stressed. I've brought him a turntable he can lie face down on with toys all around but he doesn't like that either. I was going to take it back the shop till he threw up on it M is lovely hunnie he'll be rolling and sitting when he's ready PT xxx

Rolling over/Sitting up etc

Hi T I might be wrong but I think 6 months-ish is the marker for starting to sitting up as for rolling over that could be any time soon. Does he arch his back when he's lying flat? Sam does this and now lifts one shoulder up too so I can see him progressing to a roll soon. I shouldn't worry about him hun I'm always amazed at how Sam suddenly developes a new skill....one day they can't do something and the next day they can Sam's not attempting sitting yet but he does lift his head a lot for a no...

All mods - Sorry I read an old thread re thumb sucking and the dentist and everyone seemed to be all for thumbsucking and you know me Mrs Paraniod Laura - thanks anyway hun xxx Mrs J - Yeah he has a dummy during the day but he can't keep it in. I've tried the Vaseline today thanks for that. Lexie - Sam's like that....I'm sure there's an invisible piece of elastic conecting his thumb to his mouth. Rene - I wondered about teething too?

Thumb sucking

Hi Laura....I thought making sure he always had something in his hands was a good idea too but it doesn't work in practice he soon drops the toy or manages to get tpy and thumb in his mouth Hi T....I had an idea lying in bed last night (as you do :snigger I'm going to try Sam in his scratch mittens today....I know he'll still try to suck his thumb but at least it might help to soak up some slobber His face looks worse today like he's got a teenage spotty rash.

Thumb sucking

Hi Mayo I knew asking was a long shot but if you don't ask ....... I got a HUGE pot of Aqueous cream from the Dr's and I've used it tonight as you suggested so I'll see what his face is like tomorrow. Blimey what with his Ezcema and this sounds like I need a big vat of Aqueous so I can just dip him in PT xxx
