My baby is going to be a gadol when he grows up. I am going to make sure of it.
I have heard of a book that used to tell you how to Make a Gadol but the gedolim put it in geniza so people wouldn’t all know the sodos. So now we have to figure it out each ourselves.
I know that my baby is going to be a gadol because he already acts exactly like a gadol.
Gedolim only sleep for 2 hours at a time. So does my baby.
Gedolim never waste any time. My baby only eats, sleeps, or kvetches (sometimes all 3), but never just sits and does nothing like a non-gadol.
Gedolim don’t look to be nehneh from olam hazeh. My baby eats only simple milk, and if he eats even one drop more than he needs–he throws it up! Sometimes he accidentally throws up too much, so we take him to the emergency room where he immediately makes a kiddush Hashem to the nurses.November 16, 2014 12:18 am at 12:18 am #1206839JosephParticipant

I’m assuming he also doesn’t speak lashon hats or in middle of davening, isn’t mechallel shabbos, doesn’t eat pork rinds etc .November 16, 2014 12:47 am at 12:47 am #1206841Abba bar AristotleParticipant

I once read a birth announcement from someone who said, “We joyfully announce the birth of our son, Dr. So and So.” Any relation?

Amazing how quickly kids grow up. One day they’re born, and before you know it, they have a bar mitzvah and get married.November 16, 2014 2:41 am at 2:41 am #1206849November 16, 2014 6:06 am at 6:06 am #1206850HaLeiViParticipant

Mazel tov! Based on the mannerisms you’re describing, it seems pretty reasonable to deduce that all babies are born with the potential to be gedolim. 😀November 21, 2014 9:07 am at 9:07 am #1206853RandomexMember
“t seems pretty reasonable to deduce that all babies are born with the potential to be gedolim.”
Reb Yaakov Kamenetsky had a question:
We learn from the case of Moshe Rabbenu that a Jewish child should not be nursed by a non-Jewish woman. However, this was objected to in Moshe’s case specifically because he was going to speak with the Shechina! Why would this apply to all Jewish children?
He answered that we see from this that all Jewish children should indeed be raised as if they will grow up to speak with the Shechina.November 23, 2014 9:11 pm at 9:11 pm #1206854lookingforsemMember

Randomex, that is so cool! I planned on posting that exact Vort but didn’t get around to it (like many other things…) I had to double check to make sure it wasn’t my post! Thanks for doing it for me! BTW, where did you hear it from?

If his bar mitzvah was a year ago, he must have just graduated yeshiva ketana.
So, did he get into a good mesivta?July 24, 2016 7:52 pm at 7:52 pm #1206858CopyMachineParticipant
Popa bar abba, not really active here now, but I pinkt just popped in today and read your original posting.
Does your baby still have a vomiting issue?
If yes, there is something called FPIES (Food Protein Induced Enterocolotis Syndrome), and the main symptom is vomiting. These kids always present with delayed reactions, like two or more hours after eating the offending food, and can become allergic to foods even 10 days after first trialing.
Most kids DO outgrow it, like my own son. But the vomiting, while they are still allergic, can lead to rapid dehydration and shock. These kids can vomit until bile and be in tremendous pain. In bad cases, the bp drops and the child can go into shock, lo aleinu.
If you think your child might have FPIES, I would suggest you look into it.
CHOP is the best place for FPIES btw.
If you kid is okay, I hope so!, then just disregard…January 2, 2017 11:23 pm at 11:23 pm #1206859
Is he a gadol yet? Did he make it to the Yated?January 2, 2017 11:45 pm at 11:45 pm #1206860

Learn to burp the baby. So he/she won’t vomit!January 3, 2017 3:19 am at 3:19 am #1206862
Is that because they need air to pass through? Like when you punch another whole in an aluminum can of tomato juice (flat top) and pour from the other side?
Or the gas tank has an extra hole to let air out as the gasoline goes in?
But babies suck and suck and it creates some wormhole where the milk ends up beyond the point where it began.January 3, 2017 4:28 am at 4:28 am #1206863👑RebYidd23Participant
Health, by now the baby should have outgrown the need to be burped.January 3, 2017 4:42 am at 4:42 am #1206864Lilmod UlelamaidParticipant
“Learn to burp the baby. So he/she won’t vomit!”
The “baby” is two years old now, bli ayin hora. I assume it’s not a problem anymore.January 3, 2017 5:43 am at 5:43 am #1206865HealthParticipant
LB -“Is that because they need air to pass through?”
No, the air comes out of the mouth.
This will make them more comfortable.January 3, 2017 6:33 am at 6:33 am #1206866
Interesting. What’s up with babies and childrens’ stomachs?
Growing up my brother used to throw up at dinner so often! He would eat too much too fast and then run from the dinner table before he burst. I’m laughing right now remembering it. It was the most interesting thing.
Also, when I was a child, I could swallow things and then somehow take it back up my esophagus to my mouth. Super easy to do with pasta, but I could swallow other more difficult to navigate individual things and somehow get it to come back up a few seconds later.
At some point digestion became a one-way street.
Maybe some Kabbalist has a theory. Perhaps my neshamah wasn’t fully human at the time. I was part cattle. However since I didn’t have the additional stomachs, the result was just playing with the food and marveling while eating.
Maybe some babies are also part cattle?
