Here are 13 Things that Could Make Your Baby Dislike You

From our Tampines Infant & Childcare, I will be sharing things that could make your baby dislike you, which you might consider avoiding.


1. Wipe your baby’s mouth after feeding him.

Your baby might turn his head sideways or flap his hand in an attempt to push you away.

It is important to teach your baby to clean his mouth when messy or dirty before he grows up.

2. Lay your baby for a bath or a massage.

It takes time for your baby to get used to massage or bathing.

When you try to lay your baby in the tub, he will rise again or start crying.

3. Don’t share with your baby what he shouldn’t have.

Your baby wants to eat what you are eating.

The food might not be suitable for your baby’s digestive system and cause allergies or tummy ache.

Say NO to your baby and let him know his food is coming or is milk only.

4. Make your baby stand up when he still does not have strength in the knees.

This causes discomfort to your baby as his ligaments and muscles are not strong enough to let him stand.

5. Take out stuff from your baby’s mouth.

Your baby loves to pick stuff like a coin, a toy etc off the floor and put it in his mouth.

This helps him to explore a new thing.

When you rush to pull the stuff away from your baby, he doesn’t like it.

6. Ask to see or count your baby’s teeth.

Your baby might get sick or in pain when he is teething.

7. Put your baby to sleep.

Your baby might refuse to go to sleep as he likes to spend time with family or play more.

8. Say No to your baby.

9. Block your baby when he is watching TV.

10. Carry your baby away from the spot where he is playing.

11. Wrap your baby to take photos.

12. Cut your baby’s hair.

13. Tease your baby with singing, scaring or waking him up when he is sleeping.

I hope this article will help you to try avoiding doing things which your baby might dislike you do.
