Restless En En

Mummy never can understand why En En never feels tired after a long whole day and yet refuse to sleep till late night? She is too energetic but these few days she's not keen in taking her usual porridge. We have difficulty to feed her... I plan to let her self-feed but that will only mess up the place and she won't be eating much coz she will have fun playing with food.

En En woke up after 10am yerterday according to MIL and only nap for 2hours in the afternoon. Even the afternoon nap... Ah Mah already run out of idea on how to get this little fella to sleep after she's been so tired. Story telling and soothe music already useless now. So, Ah Mah got to put her in stroller and pushed her in the house till she mabuk (drunk feeling) and sleep soundly then only can carry her back to her bouncer! Mummy is not going to do this for her at night, this is a bad bad habit and not recommended. But not sure will consider this tactics if En En's condition is getting worse.

Mummy thought she will be tired after 9.30pm and brought her up to bedroom about 10pm. After her milk milk at 10.30pm she got up and was busy walking around in the room, opened and closed the wardrobe door with mirror and admiring the baby in the mirror. Sometimes, she will talks to the baby in the mirror (yes, self talk) even after I switched off the light. Terrible part is she will hit the door, making noises & tell mummy to open the door for her. She wants to go out even everybody alredy goes to sleep.

Recently she cling more to Daddy and only daddy is able to ask her go to bed. She listens to daddy's command (yes, after a few stroke on her butt and thigh). Her eyes were all red but she still want to play and go out. It takes about 1-2 hours for her to sleep everyday. Mummy believes there is some bad habits that should be identified and changed. Looks like we are going to invest in cane soon...
