Aden turned 4 months old last Friday (I know, time flies right!) and according to some Chinese beliefs, it's time to perform the 'saliva collection' ritual, so that he won't have excessive drooling of saliva in the future.
Besides, other than milk, a 4mo baby can started to try solids (Of course not all babies are the same). I have yet to let Aden try any rice cereal, kinda worry to get him started at the moment, as the paed strictly said NO and gotto wait til he's 6mo, as it might triggers allergies.
But some of my mummy friends commented it's ok to give a little bit to see how baby responses, so that it'll be much easier for him to take solids few months later.
Kinda dilemma now, so perhaps my fellow mummy bloggers can share with me your experiences, million thanks! ^^
Anyway, we did a simple 'saliva collection' ritual for Aden over the weekend.
Just a few Marie biscuits (tie them up like a necklace) and a piece of cooked drumstick. Actually if I were to follow the tradition, I gotto prepare 12 pieces of biscuits.....
Introducing the crying machine, 哭胞den. Really, Aden cries alot, I keep telling him 'You are a boy ok! Baby boy doesn't cry so much one!' =_=""
Let him licked the drumstick.. I think may be because the drumstick was cold already, he showed not much interest....
... kinda enjoyed in the end, Aden looked so 'high' here, LOL!
