Babies. Ah, those little angels. These adorable little miracles just completely take over once you bring them home, don’t they? Spellbound, it seems like all you wanna do is smell, kiss, and cuddle them all the time and stare at them all day… until they cry. And cry. And cry. Then you start to worry, What’s wrong with my baby? Is she sick? Is he still breathing? Is this normal? Yes, mumma, we feel you there.
It’s completely natural for first-time mums to worry, if not obsess, over the smallest of symptoms that their babies show. It’s maternal instinct and yes, even mothers with multiple children and who are not first-time mums get anxious when they suspect their children are unwell.
It can be quite overwhelming and seeking advice from different channels, whether from forums on the internet or from well-meaning friends and family, can be confusing.
It’s important to remember that all children progress differently. Children reach developmental milestones such as babbling, crawling, standing, walking, and teething at different ages. No singular chart or resource on the internet can provide you with certain answers. The only qualified individuals to properly assess your baby’s progress are licensed medical professionals like pediatricians and registered nurses.
