HOW TO PREPARE THEM (AND YOU!) 1. It’s hard to tell how the new arrangement will go, but with a bit of preparation things may go smoother than you thought. Here’s what Melissa recommends in the lead up to your child’s first day.
2. It’s important for parents to visit the centre and talk with the staff/director to gain as much information as possible. Ask to have a walk through and take a list of questions with you that you might want to ask. The more you know about something the less fear you have of the unknown.
3. Orientation visits are very important, as they allow you and your child to become familiar with the setting, the staff, and building relationships.
4. If you have a pre-schooler who is older enough to understand, talk about childcare with them, and some of the processes such as drop offs and pick ups, making new friends, new learning opportunities and play.
5. Take your child shopping and include them in choosing items needed, such as a bag, water bottle, hat, etc. This this gives them ownership in the process, and assists parents in talking about going to childcare with their child.
6. Take a support person with you for the first few drop offs – having someone with you will help with any overwhelming feelings you might have about leaving your precious cherub in someone else’s care.
7. Tell the teachers everything and anything about your child! The more information a parent can give to the staff, the more they will be able to cater to your child's needs and with making the transition a smooth and positive one.
8. Be consistent in routines when dropping off your child, this limits disruption and negative transitions.
Implement some of the centres routines at home to help with transitioning your child. For example, morning tea time, nap/quiet time, outside play, etc. Credits kidspot.com.au
Baby boy is already 5 months today! This past month he decided sleeping through the night is not fun, and his favorite feeding time is 4am. He loves kicking his feet and has been laughing. It’s been pure chaos with two toddlers and a baby but trying to enjoy every moment because it goes so fast. 💙💗💗

É o que dizem: a cada mês, um bebê diferente. No terceiro mês finalmente as coisas parecem que entraram nos eixos.
✅CÓLICAS? Nunca mais teve
✅MAMADAS? Agora são mais espaçadas e muito mais eficientes ✅SONO? Parece que está mais regulado. Ainda não dorme a noite toda, acorda de 2 a 3x na madrugada. O que já considero ÓTIMO ✅DESENVOLVIMENTO? Aprendeu novas habilidades com a boca, emite novos sons, e quer ficar conversando toda hora. Arrisco a dizer que está bem próximo de começar a gargalhar ♥️
✅TAMANHO? 6,285kg que são beeeem sentidos pelo minha coluna 😂 e 62 cm. Muitas roupinhas, como num passe de mágica, deixaram de servir da noite para o dia 🤷 .
Eu tenho que assumir que morro de saudades dele pititiquinho no meu colo, mas esta tudo taaaaao mais fácil agora, que da até vontade de rir dos perrengues que passamos para chegar até aqui.
◽️ESPECIALMENTE PARA AS MAMÃES:
Estão em qual fase agora? Me conta quais são as novidades do ultimo mês 😍
