Ultra Sensitive Crybaby Raees

Last weekend was the most crying I've seen from Raees!

Here's the thing...we were at a relative's house for a kenduri. There were hundreds of people and being the adorable boy he is, people wanted to greet him, pinch him, carry him, adore him. Instantly the waterworks started.

He was OK after a while as he started crawling around. Then he became cranky yet again. Naturally, I thought it was time for milk. To my surprise he cried even louder! He usually cries that way when he's in pain/uncomfortable. My next assumption - he had wind. So I applied a bit of oil on his tummy but it didnt' work! His diaper was OK too. I reached a dead end.

All I could do was try to calm him down while Mer went straight for the car to fetch us at the gate. He was passed from me to my mom, dad, mother in law...all the while his crying didn't subside! We were getting stares from the other guests already. Finally he was passed back to me and he was quiet again. Phew!

Although he stopped crying and fell asleep in the car on the way back, his sobs went on until we reached home. That was how bad he was crying! Poor boy...

Started our little research and found out that at babies at 8-9 months start experiencing stranger anxiety. And last weekend the anxiety hit him big time! He went crying at 3 seperate occasions, at 3 seperate places. Besides the kenduri, he cried at a get-together at my aunt's place that night and at a shopping mall the next day!

The nice thing about all this - everytime he cries, he reaches out his hands for me :)

My daughter is also like that! Separation and stranger anxiety is greater during 12-18 months old, so i read. But what I noticed is that she will not really cry if people come to the house instead. Biasala tu irin, different environment so raees tak biasa :)

dont u just LOVE it when our babies do that? some may find it annoying, but i definitely dont! in fact, i LOVE it! everytime i pass aydein to someone else and he bursts into tears and calling out "mama! mama!" for me, deep down inside, im actually smiling! :P

at least i know im special to him! ;) his stranger anxiety aint that bad, though. he warms up to people quite easily after some time. love that about him :) does raees warm up easily to people after a while too?

Suliana: Raees kat rumah dgn tok mama n tok wan dia je. Kalau gi tempat crowded or dekat dgn org yg suara kuat sikit mesti nangis. Kesian dia.

Nini: yeah dia dah start kenal org. Mommy tetap pilihan hati raees :D

Aima: weekend ni dia terlebih manja :)

Mama: yeah raees kena warm up to the new surroundings dulu. Tapi kat rumah pun kalau my father cakap kuat sikit pun dua boleh nangis. Dia ingat kena marah kot.

Thara: raees warms up to people quite easily but not last weekend though. He was very stressed in the very crowded environment. Gotta test with different crowd pulak to see if he still reacts the same.

Sarah: very proud indeed :D

glam.mama said...

oh no, poor raees :( my boys got that way at my BIL's wedding - turns out the heat was bothering them. masuk kereta, pasang aircond, terus happy!

IRIN PUTRI said...

Mamamarissa: yeah, makin big boy Raees.

Yours truly: maybe! Dah lama jugak kita tak gi kenduri before this. Maybe that's why Raees reacted that way.

Glam.mama: it was definitely the surrounding that was bothering Raees that day coz we were indoors the while time. Gotta get him to socialize more. Playdate? Hehe..

Terkejutkan when he's fine one day.. the next day tiba2 he wouldn't stop crying seeing strangers.. my son started kenal org during 1 Syawal last year!.. he was all ok masa pergi rumah my uncle for bukak puasa the day before.. happily playing with people who he seldom see/kenal..
The next day balik kampung.. oh my god, pening kepala wondering what was wrong.. then baru tahu die dah start kenal org..

But yeah, the best thing is that, he would always run back to me if that happens.. rasa sungguh special.. tak sia2 the 9 months pregnancy and the pain during delivery.. hehehhe..

glam.mama said...

Of course, we are always up for playdates ;D Here's to hoping my boys don't scare Raees! Hahaha..

IRIN PUTRI said...

Ruzanna: yeah best bila dia cari kita time nangis tu then basahkan bahu dengan air liur plus air mata dia. Hehe..

Glam.mama: we shall see ;)
