As a parent, we always want only the best for our children but we can never dictate what they should do. Instead, what we need is to support them in their field of interest. Kids have lots of things in mind. In my case, some of them are into drawing while some are into music. One of my children is into computer to the point that he keeps on downloading programs and to modify his games.
For my son who is into music we bought him a keyboard and hubby as an acoustic guitar he can practice. If given an extra fund, I am planning of buying him a new drum set along with a high quality pipe clamps from musicians friend.

I am pretty sure it’s not just me but many other moms out there who used to massage almost every part of our babies. True, isn’t it? This is because I do believe that massaging is just one of the many sweet ways that babies feel being truly loved. And it’s even much fulfilling for us — mothers, if we knew which part of our babies to do massage best and the benefits massaging could provide for their health.
Here below is an image showing the different zones of a baby’s foot wherein even a very slight massage or pressure on it can even provide comfort and soothing effects to other parts of their body.
Different Zones of Baby’s Foot
I am actually following this foot guide and every time I noticed that my son Zach feels bad or even just I see him uncomfortable in his abdominal area, I just massage his sole in the 4th and 5th areas as indicated in the image above. And boom, minutes then, I can see him differently from before I haven’t massaged his foot.
Mommies out there, should you try this guide when you massage your kiddos also.

Zach’s 2 months and 16-day old sweetie today. In his youngest mind but sweetest smile, he is advanced enough in some of his developmental milestones as confirmed by his pediatrician which I first noticed but I just denied it at first because, of course, I don’t want to be boastful enough in proudly announcing how bright and clever my son is. But as what he has been showing to me, I think he deserves some tighter hugs and kisses of appreciation for that development.
Anyway, regarding his advanced motor and cognitive gestures, I am thinking now of making some necessary child-safety measures at home or should I say, making the home a child proof one.
Child-Safety Measures at Home
Zach is starting to reach out which is normally seen at 7 months of age. And I am afraid if he would just suddenly reach out anything and pull them and might cause any accidents at home if to happen that no one’s looking after him. The very first to pop out in my mind was to look for a 1/4″ shelf support so if he’s gonna grab any part of the shelf while he’s on his walker, the shelf won’t give in. Another stuff that I have in my list is a socket lock to keep those little fingers from inviting tiny socket holes.
