  1. Angel For Everyone Except You? Why Little One's Behaviour is 1000% Worse When Mummy Is Around!

    Posted on

    ANGELexcept

     

    When i was a room leader in the baby room of a day nursery i recall this one child who was a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde. He was 2 years old, adorable and so well behaved .... …..until his mum came to collect him.

    When his mum brought him in for a settling in session she warned us that he could be very challenging. We were told to expect tantrums and meltdowns daily but they almost never happened.

    Mum would drop him off to nursery and daddy would pick him up.

    This one particular evening mummy came to get him instead of daddy. Daddy was held up at work and the little angel that we were used to seeing  suddenly disappeared and in his place... the Tasmanian Devil! 

  2. Happy Talking Talking - I talk to babies!!

    Happy Talkin!

    I talk to babies. Especially the babies I get to care for overnight. I talked all day long with 11 babies every day when I ran a baby unit and I still do it now. I do it because I like to put myself in the  shoes of the baby i’m caring for and treat them how I would like to be treated. 

     

    When I'm working with a group of mums  I often say to them “tell your baby what's going on let them know what's up!! Wouldn't you want someone to grant you the same courtesy?”
