Wah, you so onz about another baby! For me, factory closed !!!
hi sugar cookie
next time before you bring your baby for jap, give her some 'pao sheng' water. and after her jap, give her a little bit of the fever medicine.
i did that to my girl when she went for her 5-in-1 early this month.. and i super kiasu, i also place the cooling pad on her forehead..
luckily, no fever..
my baby got fever yesterday.. and running nose plus cough.. so heartpain to see her taking those medicine..
think babies are clever, those medicine that dont taste good, they either shut their mouth or spilt it up after taking.. haha
Her temp is back to normal now. dont't worry, your baby will get better very soon. Babies are really resilient beings.
hi sugar cookie
you know i went and buy those small medicine bottle that have a teat and let my baby suck in bet her feeding.. at first can trick her into believing its milk.. and she readily swallow it.. the next moment when i want to feed her another medicine, she either shut her mouth or spilt it up also..
try giving ya baby some 'pao sheng' water the nite before to 'press down' her fever. it helps i heard
so many babies down with flu, cough and fever.. sigh
i think all babies loves to suck their fingers.. mine too.. and at times, she can suck her finger and her pacifier tog.. so funny... but i try not to let her suck .. cos not a good habit.
Baby's fine now. Just went back to regular feed. whew...
I gave her pao sheng too; she didn't develop fever but appetite took a major hit. She's like so tum jiak & impatient when it comes to her milk.
Sugarcookie, hope yr baby's better now.
Giving smaller feeds more frequently may help to relieve discomfort, esp if baby took rota oral vaccine.
My baby hasn't flipped yet. looking forward but also bit worried cos as hstan says they keep flipping non-stop thereafter. Christine's daytime nap is also 20-30 min now. And she clamours for attn all the time...
Hey all... how's life? I have been so busy ever since I started work. 10 more mins to "rushing back to mums to see Kaydes" time so I can try to keep up with you ladies for a while.
Can I check what is your baby's average body temperature now? The last few days, I kept feeling that Kaydes is a little warmer than before when I carry her. Over the weekend, her temp is 37.2 and so I brought her to see a pediatrician. The pediatrician said that it is not considered fever unless the temp has reached 37.5 and above. But I still feel she is warmer than before. When I take her temp now, it is about 36.5 to 36.8. How come I still feel that she is warm? Anyone has any advise for me please?
Ever since the 5 in 1 jab... my life is in a complete mess cos my whole life is about worrying, worrying, worrying... sigh
hmm i think if baby still healthy playing shld be ok =D is she eating well?
Cream, I've heard that babies' body temperature is always slightly higher than adults'. So dont't worry!!! The thermometer won't lie hehe. As long as not 37.5C and above, definitely no fever!!!
Any of your babies are sleeping through the night?? Mine still isn't...in fact, her sleeping "routine" seems to be getting worse!
For example, last night (every night goes sthg like this), she woke up at 10:30pm, 12am, 2am, 4:30am, 6am! She would wriggle in her cot, whimper and keep rubbing her eyes and ears. I tried ignoring her but she can do that for up to 45mins! And sometimes, her whimpers end up in cries. I always end up giving her milk/carrying and rocking her.
I'm really drained and taxed. Any other Mummies here with restless sleepers???
mine at times also like that.. can keep waking up every 3hrs. i guess there is nothing we can do..
my gal also likes to rub her eyes and its a sign that she is sleepy.. and she wiggle and whimper, i try not to care so much except tap her to sleep.. think she dreaming.
i tried to feed her at 10 pm (last feed for the day) and at times she will sleep thru teh night.
yeah, sucking fingers is bad habit, i will stop her whenever i see her suck..But sometimes hard to monitor all the time...Do you think its better to let her suck her mitten or take them off and she suck her fingers? I got trim her fingernails...also afraid mitten got small dust particles that she will swallow...headache.
my baby sleeps at 10pm and wake up at 2+am and 6+am...quite routine compared to last time when she was younger was every hour...When she cries, I give her pacifier if it's not feeding time yet..Soon she got used to it and wake up only twice at night. I think she also sleeps less in the day, so can sleep longer at night. I also notice that if i bring her out shopping on wkends where she tire herself looking at so many pple and things...she can sleep up to 7hrs.
my baby's base temp (underarm/aux) seems to be 35-6C. not sure if i'm taking it correctly...
my own temp (tongue) is also on low end. Doc always tell me I've no fever but I feel warm inside.
I'm so afraid I'll miss baby's fever if she does get it.
if baby is above 1 month old, its better not to let them wear mittens cos it will hinder tehir development.
ya, i know its dirty to suck their littel finger so whenever i see her do that, i will say dirty and pull it out. i heard if we continue to use the same method, they will understand one day...
