Soothing Jannah

Family members suggested the usage of the soother even before she turned a month old but somehow however I wanted to delay it as much as possible. Its going to ruin her teeth and all that. When she was three months I started it at least only when we took her out to keep her from drawing too much attention to herself and of course us all when she cries. But now I realize that the soother – a small plastic rubbery thing seems to be solving lots of problems. She falls asleep with it and seems to like to just suck it when she’s bored. Her stroller is also another good addition to baby management. It keeps her quiet and she gets a good view of the world around her from an elevation. She doesn’t perfectly fit into it and often slides to a side. However it’s a lot better than swaying and singing to a screaming baby. Yeah she does have a temper that shows up once in a few days and she can be pretty loud. But most of the time Jannah is a good baby, very easy to handle and calm down. She enjoys her tours around the house and she loves our company but if she has to be alone she can handle that too. as she nears four months it will be another painful heartbreak to watch her being vaccinated but I tell myself pain is a part of life that cannot be avoided. She will have to be a brave little baby and get over it.
