I can't sit up on my own yet, but Umi and Baba have been trying to sit-train me..
They started with the Bumbo baby seat in Baba's house in PJ. The seat is actually cousin Aimar's, and I've been using them freely since he's having so much fun blending in with the Japanese in Osaka. (Auntie Alma, gomen-neh!! We're using a lot of Aimar's stuff here, including but not limited to the baby seat, beep, playgym, diaper changing pad etc.) The seat's kinda funny looking, and if you turn it upside down you can clearly see the shape of a baby's buttocks!
What if you don't have a Bumbo baby seater? Well, don't worry... You can follow Baba's idea with an improvised seating device:
There is no rush to get me to sit up. After all, a baby's back is a fragile thing and it's only natural to let me grow up naturally and let nature take its course. Plus when I still can't sit up or move around on my own then I can get Umi and Baba to put me on their laps or carry me around, which is something that I really really like!
[Disclaimer : There are reports all around the Internet of hazards and accidents involving the Bumbo baby seat. So if you don't have one and thinking of getting one, I might as well get you informed. If you already have one, then do take care of your baby when using it.]
By the way, congrats to ChuNa for your excellent SPM results!! Yeay, we're gonna have a doctor in the family soon...!!
