Babies are much tougher than we think they are, and tougher than adults. They can fall from bed heights, hit head on the floor with a loud "thud" cry loudly in pain for awhile. Next day, back to normal. No blue-black, no bump, no cracked skull. Their bones are still soft and mass low. Impact with floor will not fracture bones. Unlike us adults.

My kids had their share of falls from the cot, bed, sofa. None suffered more than a night from the effects 

This would have been helpful if i had read it 19 yr ago, or 17 yr in the case of my boy. 😄

but hor, i suspect parents being parents, esp if it's first child, sure will still worry like mad lor... 

but yes, despite our worries, the fella turned out bo dai ji. After finished the milk, went back to sleep already, couldn't be bothered... 🤣

our girl fell sick more often than the brother when they were young. When she was about maybe 3-5 yr old, when she got the flu (or flu-like illnesses), had fever and coughed, the western med that the PD gave, didn't help much, but she responded well when we brought her to a TCM at Queestown. The meds were bitter but she somehow could tahan and it wasn't a huge struggle to get her to take them.

But strangely it lasted for only about 2 yr, and then she didn't respond well to the TCM anymore, by which time she was diagnosed to have mild asthmatic symptoms, and needed inhaler (think with ventolin) to help her breathe smoothly.

Bros this may be a tad early to consider..

But has anyone brought their baby on a very long flight?

I'm planning a trip to NZ during the CNY period next year, and my baby will be 1.2 yr old then...

U know your baby "behavior" best.... most babies sleep almost whole day. Adjust feeding time a bit..... I played with my baby and tried not to feed before flight.

Once inside plane, drank milk and slept inside bassinets the whole flight. :D

Unless u are visiting family, not my thing.

I can't take redeye flights cos my kids cant sleep well on them. They can't sleep well = i can't sleep well. It's just a torture.

Unless u are taking business class, means it will be the kid on you or your wife's lap for 10hrs. <2 is no seat.
It's bloody uncomfortable.
unless grandparents or helper is traveling along, then maybe yeah lor, will be partly tolerable cos everyone can take a break.

My girl was 1.5 when she went to bali, but that was a 2hr flight with grandparents along and cos it's my friends wedding i was attending. After 2 years old, we went to Perth. Even then my wife couldn't go to the toilet on the way back cos my kid was trying to sleep on her. 

Depends on your lifestyle lah. Some parents will just bring their kids go globe trotting.

So many parents forget

the child has their own thoughts and idea and want to live their lives their way.

The I have plans for my kid . . . . . . 

Your plans may not be their plans.

The only thing you can do is accept them AS they are.

:D

If my daughter like girls so be it.

If my sons turn out to be lesbians trapped in a man's body I can accept that.

If my kids want to be sportsman instead of carrying on my business being used car salesman and massage young lady therapists

its their life!

If he sounds very chesty, bring him to see your GP or paeds. He may have bronchiolitis.
