That sanni... herb mentioned here is called "Kattarvazha" - കറ്റാര്*വാഴ in Malayalam. That is, aloe vera.

Sure they do sit in it. My son is so comfortable in it that he usually sleeps during long drives.

No way Raj; my Wife is at home 24 X 7 & only with our daughter so no question of separation, but still my daughter is addicted. But I got a different thought; probably children who're attached more with Mothers have this addiction. My cousin sister & my daughter both of them are Mother's pet, while my Son is not. Just guessing

Oh!!! C'mon Vivek, how do I find out what's the anxiety with my 7 months old daughter? However, when we asked my cousin, who's 6, she said, she likes doing it.

observe . I am not saying raise them in anxiety free world, but give them something else to deal with it.

edit: may be they enjoy attention. even if it's negative. ignore for a while and see if it helps.

Ignoring helps a lot when it comes to undesired actions; point agreed.
Thanks for the suggestion on pacifier; I think it should help. Let me try getting one of those for my daughter this weekend. Its a great idea because in course of time, she can remember only about this thing & forget about the finger; eventually we can deal with a lost pacifier sometimes in future. Great idea!!!

Are there any educational websites for kids around 4 years old? What I have in mind is something like this: a webpage displays a series of pictures of animals. When the child points at / hovers on a picture the image will enlarge slightly and a voice over will say the name of that animal. This is just an example, its important that it should be interactive. It can even be an online educational game. If any one knows, please post here.

Hello team! I became a father of a beautiful baby girl this 19th!! and I am real excited!

The problems started even before the baby was born. My wife could not withstand the labor pains and we had to opt for c-section! then the problem of feeding the baby! 1st three days till the milk appeared in my wife were horrible, it was very difficult to feed the baby and it was real painful to hear it scream n cry due to hunger. . .after the milk appeared it was another story! the baby was addicted to spoon feeding n it doesn't breast feed!! Man it is so painful to see the baby loose weight rapidly :-( and it is even more painful to see her mother suffer. . .she is depressed. . .hope things turn around n I get to see n feel some happy moments

Congratulations on your promotion!!

Dont worry about the troubles. They will soon go away. Many babies have problem in latching on in the beginning. After all its a new process for them and it takes a while for instinct to kick in.
Read up about post partum depression as well and what you can do about it. Its quite common among new mothers.

Check out Eric Herman's video's on youtube. My son loves them. Very catchy music and I enjoy them too. Search for kiddie video's for more such songs but by far Eric is my favorite. Very talented guy and loves kids a lot. He does a lot of events at schools and stuff. to him.

My son is now 4 years old. I used to show lots of videos, songs etc to my son. I think this has resulted in his attention span becoming very less. He is very lively (hyperactive?), and video/TV has aggravated the situation. His teacher keeps complaining that he keeps roaming around in the class after finishing his class work, that he is in a hurry to start playing etc. He finds it difficult to sit at one place and concentrate.

I know he is very young. As of now, we have reduced his TV time and replaced that with more outdoor activities.

Thought of sharing this, as many of us may be doing this. TV has become such a central force in our lives.

Aditya - Thank you very much for the valuable link. I'm going to watch & show them to my son this evening.

@Raj - Rightly said; today's generation (actually have been observing since 90's) have less concentration due to impatience (may be the problem of the nation too). Just wait for few more years & send him to good meditation class & that WILL help.
