This week, Gaven went through these:
1) Separation anxiety from gong gong and popo (they went back to KL…. forever)
My parents went back to KL after staying with us for 3 months. What does that mean? Our help is gone! Oh well, back to running around the house naked…..! haha….. kidding! We are not sure if Gaven misses them. He didn’t say anything about it… at least we don’t think he said anything about it. He talks all the time… god knows what he’s saying.
2) New babysitter (our friend Kaity is watching him for a few months until we find a permanent babysitter)
So since my parents are gone, we need a new babysitter. Kaity stepped in to help us until we find somebody permanent. After searching high and low, we still can’t find the “right” person to watch him yet. Kaity is pregnant and is due in Oct, so we have a few months to find somebody (she will watch Gaven up to Sept). I hate to keep changing babysitter on Gaven, but we have no choice. We didn’t want to just settle with somebody. At least this way, we know he is in good hands and we have a few more months to find the “right” person to watch him.
3) Doc band (he starts wearing it today for 23 hours a day)
Gaven has a flat spot on the left side of his head (due to laying on one side for too long), otherwise called Plagiocephaly. The doctor recommended doc band treatment. His case is not that severe, mainly for cosmetics. So
John we decided to treat it. He starts wearing his “helmet” today.He seems to be doing fine so far, definitely needs some adjustment from him. I would imagine it being very uncomfortable with a helmet on all the time. It is heart wrenching when I see him fuss due to the helmet. He seems to really hate it when he is in the car seat with it. He started crying as if he was in so much pain when we put him in the car seat with it on the way home. He did fine when he was out and about. So he just needs to get used to having something pressed against his head when he is in his car seat. He doesn’t have to sleep in it today yet (thank god!) but starting tomorrow, he will need to be in it most of the time. I am pretty sure he will scream all night when he starts wearing it to sleep. If he hates it that much wearing it in the car seat, he will definitely hate it even more wearing it to sleep. I pray and pray that he will only need to be in that thing for 6 weeks (6 weeks is the absolute minimum).
My poor baby, so many life adjustments in a week.
