How to teach babies reading and mathematics (part 3)

One of the most prominent teachers of the Flashcard system for babies is Glenn Doman. He invented the system in the 1950s and teaches it the parents in a weekly course in his Institute.

He also wrote books about how to teach your baby reading and how you baby can learn mathematics and calculation. He sells also his own Flashcards for different areas of life called encyclopedic knowledge.

We made yesterday the first video of Tim and how we teach him to learn the "numbers" with the black and white math dot flashcards. We will upload the video during the day into this post.

There you will see that it calms him down because at the moment when we took the video he just started crying.

Entrecard: Lists of NO PAID AD members

Say No To Paid Ads at Entrecard

Many of the Entrecard members have problems with the new paid system. Sometimes it's difficult to find out immediately if someone accept paid ads on their Entrecard widget or not.

There is one way how you can see if paid ads are accepted:
  1. Put your mouse over the ad and then the link will appear on the bottom left side of your Internet browser.

  2. The important part of this link is the last word. If it is "paid", it means a paid ad shows up at the moment. If it is "Entrecard", it means the Entrecard paid ad shows up now.

  3. If "Entrecard" shows up, you have to verify if it's a pure Entrecard paid blog or not. Therefore refresh the page with the "F5"-key. If you can see then a different ad, it will be a PAID AD-Entrecard.
  4. In this case you don't get 100% exposure for your EC-paid money!
  5. Therefore some members have posted lists where you can find NO PAID AD-Members for dropping your cards and for advertising with 100% airtime

Here are some of the other Entrecard members who made NO PAID AD Lists

How to teach babies reading and math (Part 2)

Black and White Math Dot Flashcard - Number 6
We show our baby boy Tim now already since four weeks the DIY (Do It Yourself) Black and White Dot-Flashcards which show the numbers as dots. In this time he enjoyed watching the Flashcards each day more and more.

Since the weekend we recognized that we can calm down him when he is crying. We just have to show him one of the Black and White Dot Flashcards and he will start looking at them. Usually it is followed by a smile from him. That's one of the signs that he i willing to learn.

We try to make a short video the next time about the way we teach him to recognize the shapes. And you will see how he will learn the first steps to learn math.

I guess this will be in the next hours, so that we can publish the video or some pictures tomorrow.

Music Monday: Amy Pearson - Lost without your love

This is Amy Pearson who sings the title song "Lost without your love" for a fantastic love story movie - "Closing the Ring". We watched the movie last year and can recommend it, luckily we found her soundtrack on Youtube.

Enjoy Amy Pearson - Lost without your love and the combined movie trailer Closing the Ring!

How to teach your baby reading and math (part 1)

Do you know that you can teach newborn baby everything from birth on?

Do you know that some babies can read and make maths calculations already with 12 months? No?
We will show you how these kids have learned these skills within their first year of life!


Do you know that your baby can only see high-contrast colours?

According to the studies, the visual system is the least mature system at birth, therefore the newborn baby is not able to perceive the bright colours. Hence, black and white colours can easily attract baby and this will enhance the growth of the vision system.

Studies show that high contrast graphics can
  • help increase concentration skills
  • stimulate the creation of synapses (brain cell connections)
  • increase an infant's attention span
  • calm a baby (when she is bored)
  • enhance curiosity
It is believed that showing black and white flashcards and toys to the newborn baby from birth on, the baby can response to mother's smiles faster as it stimulates the vision system. Black and white colours are effective to baby from birth to six months.


Few days before, we bought Timmy a set of black and white flash cards which contains 60 cards and double sided with 120 images. Its size is 31.4cm X 23.3cm, baby prefers to see big images or letters. So far, Timmy shows his interests on the flash cards. We showed him just now during the nappies time, he even smiled at the images! :-) We think this is also a bonding time together with Timmy, we enjoy these precious moments!



Why did we choose black and white flashcards?

Black and White Math Dot Flashcard - Number 6When Timmy was about 7-week-old, we DIY (Do It Yourself) the black math dots cards from number 1 to 7. We showed Timmy faithfully every day, we found that Timmy was able to focus on the flash cards. One week later, he started to smile at us and respond to us every day until now. Before this, we only could get the smile from Timmy while he was falling asleep. But now we can "chit-chat" with Timmy every day and of course he shows us his angel smiles most of time! :-)


There are many websites available for parents to print out the flash cards, you can DIY! If you are interested, you might want to check out this website Brillkids, you can even join their forum to share your views and experiences.

Bottle feeding and stored breast milk

In the last days we could store more and more of the breast milk. In some of the forums we read that other moms store the milk not only in the fridge (usually for 24 to 48 hours, afterwards you should throw away the milk) but also in the freezer(up to 3 months).

Some moms said after they thawed the milk from the freezer that the babies didn't like the taste of this stored frozen milk anymore.

At the moment we have difficulties to give Timmy the stored breast milk which was longer than 20 hours in the fridge. When we bottle feed him with this milk, he just drinks 50 ml and afterwards he starts crying. Then it takes time until he drinks again 10 ml and so on.

Usually he drinks over 100 ml for each bottle feeding session.

Which difficulties did you have with breast/bottle feeding or stored breast milk?
What can i do now?
