now... what is there to discuss? i guess one worry i have now is speaking. so far my son is 18 months. but still cant really talk properly. he can make tons+tons of animal noises though. which is freakin hilarious... but for words just single syllable words. baba mama dada nana etc. cant seem to sound out two sounds like bana or maba or that type of thing. people say boys speak late. but its still a worry. sweat.gif

when did your kids start stringing sounds together

envy you have 3 kids....

how you manage?

Currently i have only one daughter 3yrs old. Always like to stick me ( bath, feed, play, poo2, sleep ) all looking for me. Although sometimes its quite tiring & irritates, is a learning journey for me....

wow so many guys at pregnancy section...
rotan will not solve the issue.

let me start to share on eating food.. i let my boys to learn to eat when they are 18 months .. although is dirty end of the day but that how it should be.. just make sure seating beside them while they are eating..

asian like to hold a bowl of rice and chase here n there to feed the kids.. have u seen mat salleh doing that? u need to let the kids know that if u dont eat u will hungry

as car seat.. all my kids going through the car seat... train them from young.. my two eldest both till 8 years old

when i start my car all must at their car seat else i wont drive.. do it for 2 -3 weeks n the kids will surrender ...as going out is what kids looking for.. even there is one time i turn back home from halfway when the kids dont want to sit car seat..

yeah. because you have to constantly watch them. if they golek into the pillow for example. chances are they have no chance to golek away. then hard to breathe/cant breathe. very dangerous. when my son was that age. he didnt have any pillows or anything in his crib. just a blanket. which we shoved down the sides so that it cannot be pulled further than his tummy. once they can roll freely back and forth its easier.

but you should encourage them to roll. once they move more just nudge them until they can do it. i got one old colleague son is almost one year, still cant roll over. they never encouraged him to golek over. they said its more convenient.... but they are just hindering his growth... kecian.

depends on who's in charge of them
IMHO both should not rotan the children. 1 must be their ally so that they have someone to turn to

EDIT : by both i means one rotan, another help. good cop bad cop theory

My boy is now 2.5 years old & yea, same worry as you're having too. He's not speaking much but I do see some improvement the last few weeks. I had to force him to speak up when he wanted something or else I won't do it for him.

Me & my wife have been discussing if we should throw him into nursery ASAP so that he gets to mingle around with other kids.

Also been thinking of speech therapy for quite some time now but I guess I'll consider it seriously when he hits 3 & still lotsa baby talk. sweat.gif

can he build sentence? i.e green ball? can he read abc or number? 3 yrs at nusery wont help much.. bytheway 3 yrs still early....

the most important when kids reach 3 .. is for them to response to u.. i.e u throw a ball in front of him.. his eyeball will follow the ball... or ask him to pick up things he undesrstand the command

Fortunately, he can do all that you mentioned.

While I'm not exactly sure how much of what he said is considered as "build sentence", he can definitely relate an object with colour (blue car), he is capable of going through ABC-Z, 1-20'ish & he is able to comprehend my command. It's just that majority of stuffs coming out from his mouth are still baby-talk or a mixture of 70% baby talk, 30% comprehensible English.

I must also said that he is very stubborn or in better term, strong-willed. He will ignore me if he's doing something else & sometimes he's very moody (which is kinda like his mom) when interrupted. As such, a lot of time, me & my wife felt that he didn't have much eye contact with us which is 1 of the factors that got us worried. In fact, my worries of him being autistic is 1 of the few reasons why I kept rejecting my wife when she asked for a sibling for him. sweat.gif

hi guys.. my son is 18mths now..

is it normal when he always wake up or cry at night asking for milk?

routine is like this

11pm - he start to sleep, around 20-30min he will sleep soundly

1am or 2am - his 1st cry for milk..he didn't actually wake up and open eye, just crying for milk

4am or 4.30am - he cry for milk again

6am to 7am - cry for milk again, this time need to put in cradle else he wont stop crying.. will sleep until 10am then wake up and bath

me myself no problem wake up at middle of night to make milk, but pity my wife coz when she wake up, quite hard to sleep again.. she's a nurse btw

my son now drink formula milk only since he's 12mths

Can try train him off of that. We did it slowly. Unfortunately he still wakes up doh.gif but not for milk. Wake up give him a sip of water then he KO again. Still dunno why he gets so thirsty at night. Before sleeping around 10-11pm. He drinks 200ml milk AND 100ml water. Then can sleep.... strange. But easier than waking up, buat milk. Check milk. Blah blah hahah.

My boy had this issue before too. Pediatrician encouraged us to give him solid before sleep as he might get a little hungry if he only had milk prior to his bed time. You can give that a try.

However, in my case, it's kind of a season thing. There are weeks where he slept soundly throughout the night, weeks where he would wake up too early (like 5am) & weeks where he would wake up in the middle of the night for milk. I've gotten a bit used to it so no more complaints... unless my wife got woken up by the ruckus. sweat.gif

hi guys.. my son is 18mths now..

is it normal when he always wake up or cry at night asking for milk?

routine is like this

11pm - he start to sleep, around 20-30min he will sleep soundly

1am or 2am - his 1st cry for milk..he didn't actually wake up and open eye, just crying for milk

4am or 4.30am - he cry for milk again

6am to 7am - cry for milk again, this time need to put in cradle else he wont stop crying.. will sleep until 10am then wake up and bath

me myself no problem wake up at middle of night to make milk, but pity my wife coz when she wake up, quite hard to sleep again.. she's a nurse btw

my son now drink formula milk only since he's 12mths
*

this is more routine issue..and why only sleep at 11pm so late..
before sleep big bottle milk ? probaly solid food not enough dring dinner

my kids will ready for bed at 8 to 8.30pm.. so after 9.30pm i got free time with my wife..

My son is hitting 3yo this July, but he's been in kindergarden/day care since beginning of the year. We all struggled (My son, wife and me) and it was a horrible experience. For the first 2 weeks he was crying all day and night saying "I don't want", not willing to go to school and all. Got to know from the teachers that he's not used to the new environment and there were many other kids there which he's not familiar with.
But when me and wife checked with the teachers again this week, he's doing great at school, learning to scrible and play bricks with the kids... And I heard from wife that, the teachers noticed girls like to hang out with him, like all of the girls from the whole school... shocking.gif shakehead.gif sweat.gif
Now that really give me mix feelings... hahaha...
But I'm really glad he can mingle around well now at school.
Only problem is, he still has his morning crankiness which refuse to eat and "can't wake up" kind of attitude.

Fortunately, he can do all that you mentioned.

While I'm not exactly sure how much of what he said is considered as "build sentence", he can definitely relate an object with colour (blue car), he is capable of going through ABC-Z, 1-20'ish & he is able to comprehend my command. It's just that majority of stuffs coming out from his mouth are still baby-talk or a mixture of 70% baby talk, 30% comprehensible English.

I must also said that he is very stubborn or in better term, strong-willed. He will ignore me if he's doing something else & sometimes he's very moody (which is kinda like his mom) when interrupted. As such, a lot of time, me & my wife felt that he didn't have much eye contact with us which is 1 of the factors that got us worried. In fact, my worries of him being autistic is 1 of the few reasons why I kept rejecting my wife when she asked for a sibling for him. sweat.gif

hard to check on autism.. there is center in gleangles u may want to find out..

please note sometimes kids having ability of speaking is due to hearing.. so first thing is to ensure ur toddlers has been going throgh the hearing test.. if hearing test pass..then u just need to monitor.. one of my son having issue pronounce the f and s sound.. so we do teach him and pratice in front of mirror..is more on how ur mouth n tongue position.. after 2-3 months ok..

Glenagles Penang? I'm from Penang & TBH, I'm not very fond of the child development psychologist that's stationed in Glenagles Penang. Pretty sure he's hearing is OK but I'll monitor.

Sigh... being a parent is no fun with so many things to worry about. sad.gif

i have a son with high level autism. It's ADHD and Asperger's Syndrome. Let me know if any father have questions.

There is another thread on autism but not one seems to be interested to contribute. In fact according the austism educators a lot of parents are still denial about their kids having autism. A lot of autism are mild and the child will look normal but they have temper issue and speech issue which the parent do not want to seek help. They keep denying their kids having problem and afraid that their child get labelled as "crazy" or "nuts".

Plus a lot of old folks (the grandparents) who knows nothing about autism simple says things. They just get info from other grandparents and say the child is ok, no problem..the issue will "go away" when the child grow up. By the time they grow up as teen, it will be too late to seek help.

Autism never go away. It can be intervened. The child will be taught how to handle his/her issue but there is NO CURE for it.

Hi Abubin, what are the symptoms parents should look out for? Sometimes it's very similar to growing stages of a child so some children are faster some are slower.

yup, it is hard to detect especially if your child is too young. For a proper diagnostic by psychologist, they recommend the child to be at least 5yo.

Most of the times, you can tell by they way the think. However, it depends on what kind of autism your child is having. You can compare the symtoms in websites that list them.

For example, my son's asperger syndrome has these symtoms:

difficulty making friends of the same age, children with AS may feel more comfortable with adults or much younger children
engages in one-sided, long-winded conversations, without noticing if the listener is still listening or trying to change the subject
displays unusual nonverbal communication, such as lack of eye contact, few facial expressions, or awkward body postures and gestures
does not empathize with or seems insensitive to others’ feelings and has a hard time “reading” other people or may have difficulty understanding humor
doesn’t understand the give-and-take of conversation or engage in “small talk”
seems egocentric or self-absorbed
may speak in a voice that is monotone, rigid, jerky or unusually fast
may be extremely literal or have difficulty understanding the nuances of language, despite having a good vocabulary

hey bro. thanks for sharing your experience. my friends son has autism as well not sure what level, but can see its very difficult for them to manage. she was also living in denial i guess. she knew it and they were working on management. but i guess a part of her was just pretending like nothing happened then one day she went to one specialist in australia and he had a good talk with her, then finally let out all her feelings. once again, thanks for sharing flex.gif

i dont think is modern way yeah .. is more on asian vs mat salleh way ....

my way for my 3 kids when they are 4 years old
time out (punish them standing facing the wall (3 minutes/until they admit the mistake and say sorry)
do not mentioned .... u r naughty/useless/bodoh else everyday they use to the word and act like it ... just mentioned , papa/mama not happy on the way you behave today.

end of the day .. spend more time with kids .. you be more easier in future if the foundation is build when they are young ..

tips
4-7 years below
lego is a good for building relationship .. also if you want your kids to play on pc .. go to http://pbskids.org/ ..


my 8 and 10 years old, we play remote control/hot wheels car on weekend ..

congrats bro. just make sure you stock up on all the stuff you need like diapers and creams and oils etc. and get a 'go' bag ready. i highly recommend getting minyak telon too. also all clothes should be washed before use. can get the special detergent for baby clothes to kill bacteria and less chemicals or something for the baby's sensitive skin. can also ge the tummy wrap thing to protect the umbilical cord from rubbing or accidentally getting caught. icon_rolleyes.gif

i just putting it out there. other people probably told you the same thing though hahaha. but just in case i also wanna add. also you need to decide if you gonna use formula or use breast feeding. then can also prepare accordingly. like need to boil the barang barang you wanna use like bottles and such to sterilize or go shopping for breast pump, nipple cream (some women breastfeed till nipples all bleeding, so its advised to use cream a week or two beforehand. its damn expensive though like RM40 for 5ml or something like that sweat.gif ).

for breastfeeding. one thing you can decide to do or not, depending on your waifu personality... is to talk with your wife about breastfeeding and 'possibility' of low milk supply at the beginning. my wife went into slight depression as had no milk for first week. but i think if we were prepared that it might happen then i think she wouldnt have been so upset. but after supplementing with halba/fenugreek tea. all went well.

good luck. be patient. waifu will become crazy. and you will too. hahah.

hehe. congrats. dont worry about the stuff. if you cant get it. someone else can help.

minyak telon looks like this (amongst others, but this is what i use).
» Click to show Spoiler - click again to hide... «


its for bloating, tummy aches, etc. not sure what is yu yi oil. but this is something like eucalyptus i guess. haha. kinda traditional. use on tummy, chest, back and feet normally.

edit... i frickin love the smell. ask parents or aunties for sure they know or they will recommend something that does the same job.

also, some people like to recommend gripe water for bloating. i personally never used it. bought it and left it there cause i found out it is similar to medicine and unless baby really going crazy we didnt wanna give any chemical stuff like that.

Yes I think Yuyi oil is mostly used by Chinese, i freaking love the smell too!
I believe Minyak Telon is about the same function, to keep baby warm after bath and sooth stomach bloats.

unless there is a reason not to breast feed, I think all mothers should go for breastfeeding. Cause the benefit is a long term for the child and mother. If your wife do not want to breastfeed...tell her it will enlarge her breast size by 1-2 cup. drool.gif

let me start to share on eating food.. i let my boys to learn to eat when they are 18 months  .. although is dirty end of the day but that how it should be.. just make sure seating beside them while they are eating..

asian like to hold a bowl of rice and chase here n there to feed the kids.. have u seen mat salleh doing that? u need to let the kids know that if u dont eat u will hungry

as car seat.. all my kids going through the car seat... train them from young..  my two eldest both till 8 years old

when i start my car all must at their car seat else i wont drive.. do it for 2 -3 weeks n the kids will surrender ...as going out is what kids looking for.. even there is one time i turn back home from halfway when the kids dont want to sit car seat..
*
LOL

Not solve is depending on the powar... even rapist scare with rotan...

Have you guys experienced your child will have such symptoms like growing pains?

It did happen to my daughter(3 years old)previously, claim that she having pain on the leg in the middle of the night. At daytime, she is ok ( can run/jump without pain ).
I have seek doctors for advice and it seems couldn't find out the reason.

She is a premature baby (32 weeks) and currently she is a healthy girl.

I notice my boy do sometimes wake up and cry for no reason also. Sometimes he would say pain somewhere here and there, but without being beaten or fall down or any other injury. Probably this is the case of the growth spurt?

unless there is a reason not to breast feed, I think all mothers should go for breastfeeding. Cause the benefit is a long term for the child and mother. If your wife do not want to breastfeed...tell her it will enlarge her breast size by 1-2 cup.  drool.gif

not bad. but if for studying can consider many european countries which have free education and you support cost of livign only? many kids may consider leaving country for education, just to 'grow' and be 'independent' which i think is good. if you emmigrate there for education and that happens then dunno lah heheh. i think better to focus on living standard. never been to NZ so cant comment. but i didnt really like AUS. but NZ really looks beautiful. get them to work hard for scholarship icon_idea.gif brows.gif

I've been to Sydney only and I love that place. Beautiful, clean and not too hectic.
NZ has always been on my "must visit" list and I know some relatives living there and they are REALLY enjoying life there.
Me and my wife has been talking about migrating a lot these days, to either AUS or NZ, but those are just dreams at the moment which we will need to do a lot more to achieve. Really not that easy in terms of dollars and cents (sense as well)...

The alternate plan would be to get our kids over to study, and pray that they would succeed in life, then probably we would have more chances to head to those places for "holidays"... So just have faith and pray hard la...

Congrats. The cost really does hurt haha. But Breast milk is free! Plus you don't so sakit hati when baby doesn't finish the milk... diaper normally will change 6-8 times per day. Roughly comes to about 4 packs a month can be low like RM80-250 depending on brand. Staying around the 120-150 range is good. Unless your baby very sensitive and need mamy poko

I actually top up Frisolac if baby is wanting more after breastfeeding on mum's both (.)(.)
But sometimes, due to first of confinement Breast milk supply could be unstable because of emotional and hormonal issues.
So just keep on latch on!

for my son. if berak, definitely tukar immediately.

but otherwise its like this. normally confirm 5 nappy per day. if berak or minum banyak tukar up to 7-8. thats why i use cheap PetPet diaper. even i use mahal one, my wife insist tukar so many times so might as well guna yang murah hahah. no need the high absorbant technology blah blah

830am - bangun tido - confirm tukar
1030 - makan buah, check, if kencing, tukar
1230 - makan lunch, confirm tukar
230 - sebelum nap, check, if kencing, tukar
430 - makan buah, check, if kencing, tukar
630 - makan dinner, confirm tukar
830 - mandi, confirm tukar.
930 - tido, tukar (night nappy).

oh and bila tukar, he always berdiri (kalau baring, nangis) so bila tukar also tell him kencing and he will kencing what ever he got left in the tank hhaha. quite ok lah. 19 months old.

Roughly comes to about 4 packs a month can be low like RM80-250 depending on brand. Staying around the 120-150 range is good. Unless your baby very sensitive and need mamy poko

Breastfed mum here begs to differ, I'm more sayang if you pour leftover breastmilk away than you pour FM away ok. doh.gif Please ask/observe your wife how much time and effort she spend to try to get more milk and the times she is stuck in front of the pump just to pump for the baby. brows.gif

basically what your husband will do with the extra milk that baby not able to finish? hmm.gif hmm.gif


i think those who cant finish the milk can donate away to make breast milk soap. i believe breast milk soap is far more better than goat milk soap...

just my two cents

Hehe. True true. Been there the whole time so don't need to ask haha. But breast milk don't have to straight away throw. Can still be kept and used again later because its awesome like that. Formula, gotta throw away if the baby simply touches it and doesn't drink... spent hundreds of $$ poured down the drain....

If cannot finish, I try see later within 1 hour if baby can still drink it, if not, I will finish it off, usually we can agak-agak the amount quite well and don't have that much leftover.

If really got leftover, can keep in a container and later do breastmilk bath for baby, it's good for baby's skin.

As for breastmilk soap, one 1kg bar of soap only needs 15oz so basically like 2 Autumnz bag only, and yes my son still uses breastmilk soap till today. smile.gif

A good rule of thumb is once breastmilk is heated up, normally baby should consume within 1 hour, if cannot finish, normally people don't re-freeze/ re-refridgerate it, though, in some cases I've done that before and and so far it was okay - not recommended though.

Best is to heat up say 2oz - 4oz per feed, that way you don't waste too much if baby cannot finish. Most of the time leftover ~1oz I will finish it off myself.

thanks,

the stomach flu seems to be bacterial and airborne, the doc said 'very contagious' so if another kid has it or an adult (we assumed my wife caught it first, but mild form) then its easily transferable, so need to keep hands and food clean.

symptoms for my son were sudden excessive vomiting. from 6am-10am my son vomited maybe like 10+ times. just vomiting stomach acid i guess as he didnt have any food, i guess the tummy is trying to purge whatever bacteria in the stomach. took him to the clinic and got referred as that amount of vomiting requires drip to prevent dehydration. so went to hospital to his ped and got admitted and on the drip. he couldnt eat or drink anything for a day. just would vomit everything back up, sometimes just look at food and would vomit. but after being on drip for 2 days he started eating normally again in more feedings and smaller portions. just got discharged yesterday afternoon. but still grumpy and tiring for all of us. but so kesian see him walking aroudn with the drip. after we took it off, ran like the wind hahahah.

Hi,

May i know why you say say you're failure?
You should proud of yourself because you are able to raise your kids at this age.
Im also not a high income owner & also frustrated to work. But we have no choice, this is the decision we choose.

Treat it like a challenge & solve it happily.
Do tell/inform if you have problem to your family/friends/forum too.....dont keep the problems in your heart.

welcome bro. as above, why do you feel like a failure? salary around 5k is still good what. this is around the average household income in Malaysia. Does your wife work?

as for motivation, thats a common thing. not many are motivated to work but its a means to an end. for me, i hate work, middle class earner. but i work to live. work to feed my family. work to see my son smile. gave up a lot of things. but just need to keep at it.

if you have any problems, hope we can try our best to help you. and if not help at least give you an outlet to rant.

i see a lot of my peers from school, especially who are earning big bucks flying here and there. i see ppl around me doing well buying big houses and big car. i know i should be very very motivated to provide from my children but i can't be bothered to stay late at work. i rather go home and play with them .. anyway work is a dead end job with no job security.. i'm almost in my 40s and i fear i;m letting my sons down... the way things are going i'm not sure i can provide tertiary education and plan for my retirement at the same time...

i love my kids but i'm wondering why i don't have the drive like others to work their socks off and earn big money for them.. i feel i'm letting them down.. i forsee in the future, my sons asking why i cannot afford to send them overseas..

bro. i was there before and sometimes i still go there. but first of all. its nice to say dont compare yourself with others. but it always happens, its human nature. so what i do is, dont compare yourself with only one group of people. if you look at people who are earning big bucks, then compare with those earning small bucks. you may not be the most successful richest dude out there, but you most definitely are not the poorest one. i have a buddy who is around 23 and earning only RM900 and supporting his 3-4 siblings with the oldest in uni (he pays for the tuition). i dont have any idea how he does it... but suffice to say, he doesnt have much. also know many cousins and friends earning around 2-3k or less, but still support their families. i also know rich people, whole family working to the bone. when they all sit together the feeling of family isnt even there. feels like sitting in a meeting room. so everything got pros and cons. dont just look at the good and think, oh so nice, he's got it good. very high chance many are looking at you and thinking the same thing.

one of my favourite quotes which changed the way i think is.
"When I hear somebody sigh, ‘Life is hard,’ I am always tempted to ask, ‘Compared to what?’" — Sydney J. Harris

for school, when the time comes they can get a loan, or who knows even a scholarship. if you dont have the strong motivation to work, then push your kids and motivate them to study. one thing i plan to do with my son when he's older (as recommended by my aunty with very smart kids) is to sit down with them when they do their work. you can read a book, or newspaper, or study yourself. but when they are working, dont be lepaking watching tv, playing ipad, chatting away on the phone or whatever because they will feel they are missing out on the fun and just rush through everything so they can be free and join you. so when its their time for work, you also logout and sit there with them.

anyways just my 2sen, but hope can give you something to think about. and if you ever feel you cant provide for your kids or your kids feel ungrateful and that you arent giving them anything, then go visit rumah anak yatim.

stomach flu is basically the flu virus got into the stomach. Usually it starts off as normal flu in the nose or throat. Eventually the virus will get into stomach. This is pretty common. Just need to let them build up their immunity as virus cannot be killed. Yup..vomit is really common with stomach flu. Poor kids.

I'm in IT field and Work/Life balance is totally off the hook... Too far to reach sometimes...
But you see, sometimes in life is all about give and take... You take More, you do MORE. You take less, maybe you'll need to do less... Of Cause sometimes in life you can see some ranting.gif ppl like so rich and no work needed... devil.gif I do Envy and get jealous! But you see, we all have family, but these people some may be alone, some are separated with their spouse/kids/family... bye.gif

I know I'm long winded and totally off the topic, but I point being, just try to be happy and feel satisfied in life, look at the goods and bad to balance your emotions *Note to Self!* innocent.gif

Any how, just do our best, and have faith, work hard and smart, climb the ladder one steps at a time and always stay hungry for chances/opportunity.
Try not to stay in your comfort zone for too long and move on!

Cheers.

I'm more brutal... just put into the little syringe. Open mouth shoot! And close mouth. Make sure don't shoot down throat.

If not that bad tasting type. Then normal spoon and bribe with Gerber stars....

Use syringe but have to play first.

Acah2 put water into syringe, spray into your mouth first, make funny/silly face, do it few times, lastly put medicine into your kids mouth and voila....

Hi fellow dads and dads to be smile.gif

I'm father to 7 year old son and 4 year old daughter.

Nowadays my kids always at war laugh.gif any advice to keep the peace?

I always thought different genders between siblings would bring lesser conflict among them because of different interests etc. haha

I guess I'm wrong then laugh.gif

unfortunately its VERY difficult. my family been trying to stop the bickering between my neices all the time (now 11 and 6). the development of a few years really changes their maturity so hard to get them to be friends hahaha. we tried different bonding methods, getting them to enjoy activities together (where they really get along). but on day to day. lots of fighting. this is mine, she broke this, she did that, she poked me, blah blah blah. now my own son is almost two and he doesnt really care but now my neice angry with him, took my ball lah, draw on my book, wont leave me alone, etc. hahahah. hai.... if you find a solution please share notworthy.gif

Thanks for the advise guys!
I actually tried the brutal method but he just spit it all out and cried like there's no tomorrow.
So in the end we just buy some Vitagen and it worked!
Just mix the 1 part medicine with 1.5part Vitagen and voila!

Use syringe but have to play first.

Acah2 put water into syringe, spray into your mouth first, make funny/silly face, do it few times, lastly put medicine into your kids mouth and voila....

How old?

My 2 yr old, I dont trick her.

I try not to lie to her or trick her or ambush her.

Always inform her before hand even if she wont like it, inform, explain, coax an agreement from her.

And on another note... how do you feed those liquid medicine to your toddler of 3 yo?
We were in war zone when we tried to force him to drink the 6ml of liquid anti-biotics (he got some awful fever for 3 days due to viral/bacteria infection)
*
I fed liquid medicine to my 18-months-old using syringe,
showed him the syringe and "pretend" that there is a super nice "juice" in it, where he is rewarded for it after doing some thing (finish the food/rice/vege/tidy his toys). Drag it for sometime for his curiosity to kick in, then he will drink it nicely. brows.gif brows.gif

Maybe i fed him with the paracetamol for kid, where it is not bitter at all, he ended up wanted to drink the "juice" whenever he see syringe. rclxub.gif rclxub.gif

LOL...

However I very rarely buy toys for my kids. Just a set of Lego, plus some hot wheel cars with a double loop track. I rather let them play iPad as I gave them the outdated unit.
