"No paracetamol after vaccination for babies!"

Second vaccinationImage by alphalim via Flickr

Wow, this is a big news which we just read in BBC Health news online. Here in Malaysia they gave us every time after the vaccines paracetamol to lower the fever. But now it might do more harm than good to give it to babies after the vaccinations!

These are the reasons from a study with 450 babies. Half of them took the paracetamol, half of the group didn't get the paracetamol

  • Even with the pain and fever killer paracetamol 42% of the babies who took the medicine had fever with more than 38 Celsius.

  • 66% of the babies who didn't get the paracetamol had also fever with temperatures higher than 38 Celsius

  • But the babies who got the paracetamol developed a lower level of antibodies towards the given vaccines.
    This means in case they would get infected with some of the viruses in the future their immune system wouldn't be able to fight as fast and quick as possible to prevent the illness from breaking out!
In case you want to read the full story from BBC here is the link to the article 'No post-jab paracetamol' advice.

Glenn Doman: How to teach your baby books

Today, we have received Glenn Doman's books from Kinokuniya. We bought the books from Kinokuniya online because i could not find them in the bookstore which is nearby our apartment.

These are the books that we get today:

How to teach your baby Math
How to teach your baby to read
How to teach your baby encyclopedic knowledge

Actually i have the e-books in Chinese version, but like that my husband cannot read the e-books, so that we decided to buy the English version. It's difficult to find the books from bookstore, luckily we found the books from Kinokuniya. And for luck, they have the online shopping and delivery service (they use GDEX). Online shopping is just so great!! ;-)

I recommend for those parents who wants to teach their babies as early as possible, it's a good choice adopting Glenn Doman's teaching method. Another similar teaching method is from
Shichida, he is from Japan.

Some of the parents here send their babies to Shichida learning centre, most of the parents who do the home practice as well with their babies said they see the improvements in their babies' development. However, the fees is very expensive. If i am not wrong, it costs RM 1,200 per semester, and also you have to buy the teaching materials, and it costs you extra money.

There is no Glenn Doman's learning centre in Malaysia. But it does not a matter for us if we want to adopt his method. His books explain every thing that you want to know and teach you how to start. It's encouraged to read his books and keep his books because whenever you have encountered any problems during the learning lesson, then you can refer to his books.

If anyone who wants to have the e-books in Chinese version, just leave me a message, i can send it to you. Or i will try to upload to somewhere that you can download from.

Avoid cracked nipple while breastfeeding

Nursing mothers will always get the cracked nipple while breastfeeding. I've never had cracked nipples until my son is teething. He likes to bite me when he is a little satisfied after drinking the milk. It's pain, for sure. And i have never thought i will get the cracked nipple! However, i do not stop breastfeeding. I still keep nursing my son even though i feel pain.

Actually we can avoid cracked nipple while breastfeeding, here are the useful tips for nursing mothers.

  1. Do not pull out your nipple from your baby's mouth after breastfeeding. When you do this for few times, the skin of your nipple will be broken. What you do is, gently put your finger into your baby's mouth and take out the nipple.

  2. If your baby bite your nipple during feeding, it will make the cracked nipple worse. Remember, do not shout and pull out your nipple immediately, this will make him bite harder! Instead of pushing him away, press his head close to your breast, he will open his mouth because he will feel uncomfortable.

  3. After breastfeeding, rub a bit breast milk on your nipple and areola, and let it air dry. The breast milk can help heal the cracked and sore nipple. Remember, do it every time after nursing.

If you follow these every time, normally you won't get the cracked nipple. However, if you really have cracked nipple and you cannot stand the pain, you can stop breastfeeding for one day, express out the breast milk and bottle feed your baby.

Gymboree Play & Music

Yesterday we went to Tropicana City Mall and just found out there is one center of Gymboree Play & Music on level 2. After back home, we google about it and we plan to let Timmy join Play & Learn class.

Today i called the center for the information of the class and fees. The center manager gave us a free trial class before making the decision to take the package. It's good offer, then we made the appointment on next Wednesday morning. We hope the class is fun for Timmy. The main reason to send him there is to interact with other babies.

Here are some information about Gymboree classes and fees:
Time : 45 minutes/class
Package : 1. RM420/12 weeks
2. RM1780/1 year
Trial class: RM48 (we get it for free ;-) )

The manager told us that weekday classes are more quiet, weekend classes tend to be busier. Therefore, we chose the weekday class so that the teachers can focus more on the babies.

Can't wait to go to the class with Timmy next Wednesday *LOL*
Do you send your babies to play & learn class? Do your babies enjoy the class?

Baby development: Who's that in the mirror?

Since the last week our little Timmy boy recognize the persons in the mirrors in our apartment. This is getting much more fun for him now as we have a big mirror in the bath room. There he can always watch what the other little boy is doing in the mirror :)

At the moment he can't recognize that it is him in the mirror but he recognizes us already. In the end he prefers to watch at the real mommy and daddy instead of the two doubles in the mirror :)
