Your 17-month-old

Dipetik dari

How your toddler's growing: She's becoming much easier to understand now that she often combines pointing with a word or two. And her growing independence is asserting itself in numerous ways: She can undress herself (dressing herself will come much later), brush her teeth without your help and feed her dolly. But you should continue to brush her teeth for her, until she truly masters the job.

She can sort things by color, shape, and type, which makes toys that encourage sorting particularly popular now. If "no" hasn't already become her favorite word, she'll begin using it with a vengeance. She's gradually easing toward one nap each day, which means this is a transition period that's potentially hard on both of you. If she's having trouble sleeping, try cuddling up with her for a few minutes to make it extra cozy.

How your life's changing: Toddlers are known for being finicky eaters, so save yourself some time and heartache by keeping meal preparation simple. But try to present a fairly good mix of foods on her plate at every meal. If you offer a variety of healthy options, chances are she'll get all the nutrition she needs — though it may mean she's eating her vegetables at one end of the day and grains at the other.

Parent tip: Get first-aid training "One of the best ways to keep your family safe is to take a CPR course. Call the local Red Cross to find out where the classes are being given in your area. I feel better now that I know what to
do in case my daughter stops breathing." — Laura M.
Hm... pointing with a word or two. Imran cuma buat gini kalu dia nak susu ke, makan ke. Kalau dia tengah dok sibuk ajak berborak tu, bukan takat a word or two, tapi berjela-jela! Tangannya pulak point ke macam2 arah. Macam orang besar tengah berceritalah gamaknya.

Undress: Imran boleh la nak bukak baju sendiri, provided that kita dah bukakan butang baju dia. Seluar, dah nampak dah tanda2nya. Tapi belum berjaya bukak lagi la. Diaper? Oh tu memang dari dulu lagi dia dah pandai bukak sendiri. Hehe.


Brush teeth: Belum lagi.


Sorting: Uh... mama kena belikan toys yang bersesuaian la nampaknya.


Trouble sleeping: Memang pun. Mama sampai dah kuyu mata tapi Imran rileks lagi. Ke hulu ke hilir.


Makan: Alamak. Mama masih belum train Imran untuk makan sendiri lah. Harus start nih. Bukan apa. Mama M.A.L.A.S nak kemas lepas Imran habis makan nanti. Sure sepah habis punyalah.


All in all, Imran punya development/milestone not bad jugak. Takdelah ketinggalan jauh di belakang. Well, lain baby lain tahap developmentnya, kan?
