Regina , sometimes some people are brainless you know so you can simply dont bother about them .... do you use nasal drops for your dear son ? i also using some seawater spray solution & nasal drops if there is a need .... i totally understand how you feel dont worry just come here to let out your unhappinessHi mummies, this will be a long post. But pls let me rant if not i think i will breakdown anytim!
It started on last week when we realised dear son's testical was swollen and we brought him down to his pediatrician at Thomson Medical Center... pediatrician said it's alright and the swelling will goes off around 6mths time but at the same time he found out that dear son got colic and mild reflux!
Prescribed dear son medications but days later, the reflux seems to be worsen and he vomit more milk! So we called up the clinic and pediatrician asked us to bring him down immediately and he might have to be admitted...
True enough, dear son was admitted...
pediatrician explained to us that colic and reflux are very common in babies and reflux is mostly due to over-fedding and the wrong position we carried him.. And he changed the milk powder to Friso Comfort which is much more thicker... I did ask izzit gonna do with the Friso brand he said NO, it's the powder, so we should continue with Friso brand BUT change to a thicker type of powder..
Yesterday after doing all the admissions stuff, hubby carried dear son and his aunt called, i helped him to ans...
She then keep saying "told you alrdy, dont give your son Friso, it's a lousy brand, you should give him enfalac... quickly go change to enfalac" I told her about what pediatrician told me regarding the Brand.. It's NOT the brand, is the powder... So even if we give him Enfalac in the 1st place, we'll also have to change to enfalac AR...
She keep pestering me to change the BRAND!
After that she said "must be you didnt take any good food or tonic during pregnancy that's why your son so weak... my girl very strong! so now you regret alrdy right? next time 2nd preg see you dare to not eat good food and tonic anot!"
HELLO! My mum brew tonic, birdnests for me throughout the whole pregnancy!!! She didnt know anything and assume that i didnt!
and my mum felt extremely offended when she know that she actually said this kind of things to me!
She also keep saying things like "that time my daughter dont have colic, reflux and phelgm pro ... how come your son lik that???"
keep saying that 3yrs ago she gave birth at Thomson Medical Center, and we see the same and she stayed one more day than me how come she only paid 1k i paid 2k cash.. told her 3 yrs alrdy, the bill has rise alot she just dont believe that within 3yrs the bill will rise!
I'm alrdy feeling damn sad and frustrated that my son admitting hospital yet she keep 'pour cold water' on me!
she even asked hubby to give her my number cos she wanna ask what the pediatrician said! what's that gonna do with her??? lucky hubby know her pattern and also know that i'm alrdy feeling lousy so didnt give her if not i think i will really scold her!
the worst is, my grand mother in law always listen to her precious daughter and she come blaming me that i shdn't overfeed dear son... But pediatrician once informed us NOT to control dear son's feeding unless he vomited alot... And when we realised he vomited alot, we quickly brought him to his pediatrician! Have i not done enough???
I told them dear son's want to drink more if not he will wail and scream! Pacifier also no use... he must drink until 120ml then willing to stop wailing and screaming...
Grand mother in law then said becos i didnt feed him water! said i should feed him water to stop his hunger!
1stly: pediatrician said NO WATER!!
2ndly: reflux is due to overfeeding, feed him water will also bloat him!
they just dont understand!!
Grand mother in law keep say how come last time hubby's aunt's daughter (3yrs old now) drink so much water and her pediatrician (same as my dear son) also didnt say anything and also nth happen to her... and even asked t\me to learn how to take care baby from her daughter cos she's very good at it!
hubby and mother in law keep explained to her that 3 yrs ago and now is totally diffe alrdy and we should listen to pediatrician! Unless pediatrician say should give, if not we shdn't do so... i think my hubby and mother in law also bth them...
this morning even the nurse also come telling me NEVER feed dear son water!!!
dear son is 5kilo now (6week old) and they keep criticise how FAT he is and it's not good to be 5kilo during 6 weeks old... i told them pediatrician said dear son is GROWING WELL they just dont trust me!
when he just borned, they said he's small (2.9kilo) now they say he's too fat! Must control his diet! Have you heard before controlling babies' diet when pediatrician said it's OKAY!
grand mother in law said i shdn't offer dear son pacifier and sarong cause her daughter also didn't do so to her baby! So funny! why must i follow whatever her daughter did???
one more thing... dear son is 'snoring' whenever he sleep.. seen a few pediatrician and all said is NORMAL! father in law insist me to buy him "breath right" and stick on his nose!!! OMG!! dear son is SO young how can anyhow use?? even his pediatrician also said just leave it, dont ever do anything to it, but sometimes can spray a lil seawater (but not always cos no need to)...
father in law then said breath right is better cos seawater is MEDICATION and will harm dear son!!! WOW I 1st time heard before , seawater will harm dear son!
really sry for this long post but i really to vent out my anger! thks for reading =)
