No More Thumbsucking

One study of thumb-sucking suggests that as many as 94 percent of infants drop the habit by their first birthday.

Before my little lamb chop turned 1 year old i noticed that she seldom put her thumb in her mouth. The statement stated above is indeed true to Justine's case. She's not thumbsucking now not even a single chance. I guess she out grown that habit already. However, she is been busy walking around. She actually learn how to walk when she was 11 month old but prefers to crawl than walking. But now, you can't stop her anymore as she wants to walk around and run. So, Bye bye thumbsucking, hello walking and running.

She is no longer my adoring infant and ready to enter a whole new phase in which she gains some independence. Jake and Justine will always be my adoring baby even if they reach 18 years old hehe.

Updates from Babycenter for Your 12-month-old: Week 2, if happen you have a baby that age.
If your child gets upset when you leave her now, she's right on schedule. Twelve to 18 months is prime time for separation anxiety — a psychological term that means your toddler can't bear to be without you. The best way to handle painful farewells is to keep them short and sweet: Say goodbye with a quick kiss and head out the door. Your toddler's tears will subside soon after you're out of sight. It's hard not to feel guilty, but in the long run you'll help your child become more independent.

Even if she is no longer a thumb sucking baby, she is still so cute and adorable. Kung nasa Pinas siya, ang tawag sigurado sa kanya ay tisay kasi pagka puti puti niya. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
