About Baby August 24, 2006

Posted by Zara's Mama in language, pregnancy, Zara.

Few days back
Me : Zara, mummy buy you new bed, you sleep on new bed ok? Your cot let baby sleep.
Zara : Don’t want. Zara sleep Zara’s bed.
Me : Where will baby sleep then?
Zara : *pointing to our bed* With Mummy and Daddy

Yesterday night
Me : Zara, mummy buy you new bed, you sleep on new bed ok? Let baby sleep in your cot.
Zara : Don’t want. Baby sleep new bed. Zara sleep in the cot.
Me : Why? Mummy get you nice nice new bed woh, you don’t want?
Zara : Don’t want. Zara likes Zara’s cot. Baby sleep new bed.
Me : What about nap time? Can baby sleep with you on the mattress (she has a mattress downstairs for her afternoon nap) down stairs?
Zara : Cannot. Baby sleep in small cot downstairs.
Me : But, we don’t have small cot downstairs.
Zara : Baby sleep on the floor then.
Me : But the floor is so hard and cold. You must sayang (Malay : love) baby, let baby sleep on the mattress with you.
Zara : Sleep on mummy’s body then.
Me : *roll eyes*

We still have yet to sort out the sleeping arrangement. We thought of getting a new bed for Zara, park it next to my side of the bed (like we did with the cot), and let baby sleep in the cot. Zara doesn’t seem keen with the idea.. but maybe she’ll change her mind when we bring her bed shopping.

By the way, got my amnio test result, and every thing is ok.. what a relief. So I’m now half way with my pregnancy, 20more weeks to go.

I would not be happy also if someone is taking over my stuff which I am not ready to give up πŸ˜›

but it’s amazing how Zara can come up with different alternatives!

2. Jin Yang - August 24, 2006

get cool bedsheets and blankets! U still hv time until baby no.2 is abt 3 months old. Keep it up!


3. pf - August 24, 2006

glad to hear all turned out well from the amnio test πŸ™‚ btw, i’ve got 22 more weeks to go! hahahaa! time sure flies…

4. kwloong - August 24, 2006

Hey, warning warning, you are creating some jealousy in Zara. I think a better way is bring her to shop for her new bed without telling her baby taking over her cot would be better. Some things are better left unsaid. πŸ˜‰


5. L B - August 24, 2006

That is fast! Halfway already!! And I still haven’t the chance to meet up with you yet! *sigh* *sigh* *sigh* *very sigh*

6. Jesslyn - August 24, 2006

yeah, bring her along when shop for bed, can start letting her sleep now.
I use to tell wien give lyon anything & hubby start warning me now, that i will make her feel jeolous. Luckiy she is ok so far but i still hv to beware of my act.

7. Sasha - August 24, 2006

Get her a cute cute bed! Maybe she’ll change her mind..

8. sesame - August 24, 2006

Hey, that’s great! So ah, boy or girl huh? Or you want to keep it secret? πŸ˜‰

Hopefully Zara will be more positive about giving up her cot after shopping for bed. Maybe must have a bed celebration for her so that she’ll warm up to it.

9. blurblur - August 24, 2006

Glad that all turns out well for the test! πŸ™‚

Ya, bring Zara for bed shopping. Nice nice bed linen, nice nice quilt, nice nice everything and she’ll forget the ‘invasion’ of her cot…hehehe..;p

10. Adrian & Alvan - August 24, 2006

Glad to know everything is fine :D.
Well, you may buy her the mattress cover with the cartoon she like, with that she will love it more, like my son. Or just tell her that she will grown and become big sister soon, so cot is not suitable for her anymore, I am sure she will change her mind when you do the bed shopping with her πŸ™‚

11. may - August 24, 2006

20 weeks more? wow… time sure flies! another babe just around the corner… πŸ™‚

12. geetha - August 24, 2006

Praise teh Lord.. Great to hear the results were fine πŸ™‚

Don’t worry, when it is time, Zara will share with baby.. May be the bed shopping will change her mind πŸ˜‰

I’m gonna try it with Champion too.. wanna get a nice cartoon bed spread with a comfy comforter πŸ™‚

13. Contented Mum - August 24, 2006

I still haven’t move Qi Ning to her own bed yet. Zara very good in her reasoning, amazing for her age!

14. Contented Mum - August 24, 2006

I still haven’t move Qi Ning to her own bed yet. Zara very good in her reasoning, amazing for her age!

15. AsleyLee - August 24, 2006

Glad to hear everything is fine.
Recently i also asked Jo same question even my tummy still flat, haha…just like to see his funny question. But, like what michele said lo..it’s definitely not good to say these to little one lol!

16. YL - August 24, 2006

well said!!!! just get her shopping for new bed… then she is not GIVING her bed to baby. its more like, “Zara grew up into a big girl… so big girl get big girl’s bed!! WHAO!!!! wat an achievement, Zara!!!!” then as a reward, Zara can choose between the sportscar bed or the sweet barbie girl girl bed

17. khongfamily - August 24, 2006

Bring her to choose her own bed, she will love it. We have been thinking to get a bed for Brae and get him to sleep in his own room. We scrap the idea after seeing Brae rolling and crawling around the bed.

18. khongfamily - August 24, 2006

Oh ya..good to hear that your amnio result is fine. So, girl girl or boy boy?

19. 荦怑 - August 24, 2006

don’t worry i believe Zara will like her new bed. Got more space to roll…. ha…ha…

20. mom2ashley - August 24, 2006

i’m amazed by the conversations you have with zara…no wonder you call her a lawyer buruk!:)

21. Simple American - August 25, 2006

Halfway done huh. The hard part is over then. Right? πŸ˜‰ Glad the test is good news.

Taking Zara bed shopping sounds like an excellent plan.

22. Vien - August 25, 2006

I guess the “sharing” mode will not sink in to her till she sees the baby. Jealousy is normal. After all, she has been getting total attention from everyone. As long as you’re able to keep a “special time” just for you and Zara, she will be fine.

23. Gene Lim - August 25, 2006

so cute… she still cannot adjust yet..:) give her some time πŸ™‚

24. jazzmint - August 25, 2006

oopss…seems like she can’t part with her bed :P. But very nice of her let her sleep with Mommy Daddy hoh..but very *lawyer buruk* again when baby needs to sleep downstairs.

25. LaundryAmah - August 25, 2006

yes yes! taking her bed shopping is good cos that worked for kieran but not overnight tho…took me quite some time!

26. cp1 - August 25, 2006

20 more weeks…is it baby gal or boy…zara feeling a bit jealous huh..im sure once she goes for her new bed shopping everything will be ok..pandai zara!

27. Robin - August 25, 2006

Congrats Congrats Congrats.

Dun worry, everything will be fine, once the arrival is settled.

28. Zara's Mama - August 25, 2006

*sigh* Must start reading a book on how to prepare a toddler for a new baby already.

Jin Yang,
She’s very happy with her plain sheets now. She said so clean and nice. 😐

Oh, you are about the same time as me. Time flies huh?

Aigh.. any website or books to recommend me to read on how to handle all these?

And you are going home soon? Boo Hoo Hoo.

Yeah, we have to be so careful with what we say and do huh? Just so not to create jealousy.

That’s what we plan for. But haven’t gone bed shopping yet.

Share in a while yeah, the sex of the baby. Need help to get name as well.
Oh boy, being parents, you really have to be creative huh?

Yes.. must do that soon, and let her get used to it.

Haha.. so many things to take note off huh?

Yeah.. it’s already coming to Sept. Amazing!

Thank you.
I hope she will and not be too β€˜stingy’. For now, I find she still doesn’t know she needs to share things, even with food or toys.

Contented Mum,
You planned to do that soon? She’s a little lawyer buruk.. Very clever to give people alternative solutions. πŸ˜›

Share with us your conversation with Jo ler.

Yeah yeah, must phsycho her using the right method.

So what is your plan now? I think Brae is still young to be able to make decision for himself, but still I think you have to handle with care and try not to make him feel threatened huh? Wait Wait.. telling soon.

Hope 荦怑 jie jie can tell Zara that. πŸ˜›

Haha.. Isn’t she like one?

Simple American,
Yes, the hard part is over.. that is until the labour.

Yeah, she was the crowned princess in the house.. Now her crown has to be shared.. hmm.. who would like it huh?

Yeah.. 20 more weeks.. for her to get the idea.

How did you handle Faythe the last time huh?

Ok.. have to slowly phsycho her then.. give her time. πŸ˜›

29. Zara's Mama - August 25, 2006

I think she will feel jealous even when the baby arrives. But just need to minimize the impact. πŸ˜›

Thanks.. I hope so too.

My sleeping arrangements also pretty haywired one. Gordon’s been by my side since birth. Ask him to sleep in new bed or elsewhere…. no way. Now, hubby also sleeping in bed with us. When i breastfeed Malcolm in the middle of the night, i carry him to bed with us. Then, the both of us will fall asleep together. So, it’s mostly 4-in-a-bed nearly every night. You say crazy or not. But ur Zara ah…. i tabek lorrrrr.

Ur baby ok? Doing fine? Making somersaults yet? Enjoy every moment, ya. I miss mine so much. Hv to wait so long to make another…..

32. Zara's Mama - August 25, 2006


Oh yeah.. for you is 4 in a bed.. Roll over roll over.. πŸ˜›
Baby is doing ok.. very active.. moving here and there.
You thinking of another one already? So soon?

33. IMMomsDaughter - August 28, 2006

I’m glad to hear the test result is ok..can hear your huge sigh of relief πŸ™‚

34. chanelwong - August 28, 2006

Let her see the new bed which is bigger than her bed and also let her be involve in buying the bedsheets and setting up the beds..That’s what I did to Jeriel.He is now sleeping on adult single bed in another room…Don’t worry, it will take time…
