Helo all. my baby boy is 3 months 8days. like wise he is very active. But my maalish wali says he should to try to keep his feet down properly​ nd try to touch his feet. pls help me out i m very tensed.

asha chaudhry

hi manpreet pls dont be tensed. and pls dont let maalishwali do things u are not comfy with. i started maalishing my baby on my own from month 4 as i wasnt happy with the one i found in goa. i m tagging other moms for help and advise.

Does your Dr say he is fine? I would trust the doctor and be very careful with maalishwali

and it takes time... my baby did that in 5th month starting... so, dont worry, every baby is different.. so, give enough time and give enough tummy time which helps in movement of legs too... massage legs two times a day..

Manpreet Bhogal

don't rely on maalishwali Bai  alot.every baby is different and not all reach milestones wen v want.like Asha even i started malish of my baby from 4tg month since I was not satisfied wid her. massage legs twice which vl help. now m happy tat my baby doesn't cries and enjoys wid me.

Sheeba Vijesh

babies dont immediately go and become straight, hold their feet etc. it takes time. first they find their hands, tummy and then their feet. it is not good to straighten out legs of baby at joints, if your maalishwali does that, stop her from doing so.

Harneet (clanpedia)

oh pls not at all. babies grow naturally on their own time. just give baby time to grow. their legs, feet, everything becomes ok. they are born with 305 bones but an adult only body hs 206. ur baby hs lot of growing up to do. and just a personal suggestion - that maalish is ur time with ur baby. infact one of the best times to bond with him. do it urself if u can

Manpreet Bhogal

tysm mommies.. ur suggestions have really helped me to solve my problem.. i was just not confident abt doing maalish.. but yaa wil start my son s Maalish soon on my own. tysm 🙂

Don't listen to the  maalishwali. Check with your Doctor. Every Child is different they do things when they are ready for it.  Don't pressurise your child. Don't worry.
