TUMMY TIME

By June 11, 2019 No Comments

See postitus on mõeldud ennekõike nendele emadele/vanematele, kes stressavad selle üle kas laps veedab piisavalt aega kõhuli olles. Tulenevalt oma kogemusest julgen väita, et see on tegelikult üsna ületähtsustatud ning ütleme nii, et lastekasvatamisega kaasneb suuremaidki probleeme kui see 🙂  

// This post is for all of you who are worried about they’re baby not getting enough tummy time. Talking from my personal experience, I believe that they have made a way too big deal out of it and I’m pretty sure when it comes to parenting, there are bigger things to worry about than tummy time 🙂

Mäletan, kui ühel korral ei saanud me enda lastearsti juurde aega ja me läksime teise juurde ning siis kuidas see tädi luges meile sõnad peale, et last tuleb kindlasti kõhuli panna mitu korda päevas, alguses kusagil 2-3 minutit korraga. (Sophia oli siis umbes viienädalane.) Läksime koju, hakkasime harjutama aga kahjuks ei meeldinud see talle kohe mitte üldse. Vaesekene pusis seal nägupidi maas ja mitte kuidagi ei saanud omadega hakkama. Mul hakkas nii kahju, et enam ma teda kõhuli ei pannudki. Lapsel on terve päev olnud hea tuju ja siis ma rikun selle ära, sundides teda olema asendis kus tal ilmselgelt väga ebamugav on. Üsna pea sain aru, et ega ühelegi beebile see alguses ei meeldi ja ühes beebigrupis kus käisin öeldi mulle üldse, et kui ei meeldi, siis on see vähese harjutamise viga. Siis ma muidugi tundsin ennast süüdi, läksin koju ja proovisin ikka veel uuesti aga ega see asi meil paremaks ei läinud ja sellest mingit igapäevast rutiini ei saanud.

// I remember one time when we weren’t able to get an appointment with our pediatrician so we had to see another one instead and she was telling us how important tummy time is, and how we should definitely do it daily starting with 2-3 minutes at a time. (Sophia was about 5 weeks old at this time). When we went home, we tried to start fitting tummy time to our routine but obviously, Sophia hated it. Poor baby, she was face on the floor, had no idea what’s going on and you could see how uncomfortable she was. I felt so bad for her, that I stopped putting her on her tummy. My baby was in such a good mood all day until I made her do something she wasn’t feeling comfortable doing. Soon I realized, that no baby really enjoys tummy time at first and at one baby group they even told me that if a baby doesn’t like tummy time, it’s because we haven’t practiced it enough. So of course, I felt guilty and went back home to give it another try, but unfortunately it didn’t get any better so it never become a part of our daily routine.

Siis aga tuli meil uus aeg enda lastearstiga. Kurtsin talle enda muret ja ütlesin ausalt, et ma ei ole teda kõhuli absoluutselt pannud kuna mul tekib tunne nagu ma piinaksin teda. Meie arst seepeale ütles, et mul ei ole muretsemiseks üldse põhjust! Ei ole ükski laps istumist õppimata jätnud ega pead mitte hoidma hakanud, et võtku ma rahulikult. Nii ma siis tundsin suurt kergendust, läksin koju ja enam enda last kõhuli ei pannud.

// Then one day we got another appointment with our own doctor, so I told her that we’re really struggling with the tummy time and that I have to admit, I haven’t done it at all with her. I just cannot make her do it if she hates it. Surprisingly, she said that there is no reason at all for me to worry about it. She said, every kid has been able to learn how to sit or hold their heads, either with or without tummy time. I felt really relieved, went back home and didn’t do anymore tummy whatsoever.

Ühel päeval, kui Sophia kusagil 3kuune juba oli ja piisavalt aega oli möödunud, mõtlesin, et äkki prooviks vahelduseks hoopis kõhuli mängimist. Ja ilma, et me oleksime seda harjutanud, justkui üleöö, ajas Soph ennast küünarnukkidele, pea püsti, ilma mingi mureta. Ja nii meie nüüd kõhuliolekut naudimegi! Seega, palun ärge muretsege lapse kõhuli hoidmise pärast ja ärge uskuge kõike mida te loete või kuulete. Usaldage ennast ja enda lapsi..seda ma proovin endale ka kogu aeg meelde tuletada. Üle ei tasu mõelda, küll kõik tuleb õigel ajal 🙂

// Until one day, when enough time had passed and Sophia was about 3 months old, I was thinking, maybe now is the time to try some tummy time again. And voila! She was on her elbows, not frustrated at all, laying there on her tummy and it actually looked all natural. Without any practice! And ever since, tummy time has not being an issue for us. So, please do not worry too much about tummy time and don’t always believe everything you read or hear. It’s important to trust yourself and your babies, it’s something I keep reminding myself as well, there is no need to overthink, everything will happen when the time is right 🙂
