baby vivien has fever suddenly last night.. 38.4 degrees.. so worrying.. wonder is it due to teething...
did you sponge her or give her panadol? how is she now?
yr babies r so cute!
Hstan, vivien is hope she's alright now.
how's her appetite?
Cream, it's so hard to take a smiling baby pic. her joy is infectious.
how'd you do it? Christine will stop smiling & stare at the camera.
Yeah it's not easy to take pic of baby smiling...hahaha..we tried with daddy making funny faces then mummy capture the shot...My baby seems to prefer daddy, she gets all excited when she saw him back from work every evening and daddy always managed to make her smile easily...hahaha only remembers me when she's hungry...
Weather is pretty bad these days...My gal's temperature also higher than normal. My mother in law and i gave her lots of fluid and glucolin cos she three days never pass motion. So worried..
Hope all our precious are strong and healthy
Lucky thing for me is Kaydes is very smiley... so I need to smile to her and she will smile back. When taking pictures, I cannot look at the camera, I must look at her... and take multi shots. Then choose those nice ones to keep.
Kaydes has been having loose stools for about 1 month already. Taken her to pediatrician 3 times already and each time the pediatrician says she is alright. Alert, active, playful... no fever, no vomit, so no problem. But I really wonder why her stools are at times watery, other times soft. She can poo up to 5 times a day. Anyone experience the same thing?
3 days of "no motion" - some people say it's still within normal range. Do you use the "induce" method? My CL taught me to watch out for "ngmm" sound & observe baby face. She has a slight intense look. We also try to make baby do her big biz around same time by lifting her legs & making the "ng" sound. Never play within her or distract her
Christine's actually very smiley but she simply stares blankly at the camera...
Next week's the 5 month check-up... not sure if I shld give her the pneumococcal jab. She developed fever on Monday, we went clinic & then Kandang Kerbau Hospital. She just had fever, with no other symptoms. Was worried that she somehow caught H1N1 or dengue or HFMD or something. Sure, was glad she had the rotavirus vacc cos she's chewing lots of things.
I happen to buy Income hospitalisation plan on Monday. Have you bought ins? My friend's son had UTI at full month, bill came up to $2K. The plan costs only $100+ per annum (must co-pay a bit).
BTW she's very fine now!
Ping26, yeah we tried the induce method, lifting her legs and making the 'ng' sound...haha my baby actually 'ng' back at us...Now she's passing motion every 2 days...pediatrician said no problem.
Went for her 5mth check yesterday. My pediatrician said pneumococcal jab quite painful so suggest to do earlier when she is 7mths so that they won't remember the pain, thus will not have phobia of visiting doctor. Like you, i am worried about fever and that the pain can last for 48hrs. Heartache. The cost is $175 per dose. How about your side?
So far only got a limited pay life and savings plan for baby. Will need to get a hospitalisation plan soon. Heard that can use medisave to pay premium. All these insurance for baby alone can easily add up to $500+ per month..Really costly...stressed.
she's also rejecting her milk... a bi heartache.. cos she'll rather go hungry than drink milk. or is it just me worrying too much.
I'm not sure too. Think you better see the paedi or GP. May have to put "anema" in anus cos it's already 5 days & your girl's not drinking milk. My baby has refused milk if she hasn't passed motion in the past.
Timing is everything when you do the NG...
- try to do early in morning, not long after she wakes up & has some water
- after a nice warm bath. My girl passed motion in bath water 1x after 2 days of no motion. I had to bathe her again. scared she drink her ng-ng bath water or chew her fingers.
- after meal. some adults go soon after breakfast.
let us know if your baby is alright.
Lovedove, paedi quoted $170 w/o dev assessment, I think. I'm very kiasi so will opt for jab when she's bit older. He said lifetime immunity for this type of virus/bacteria.
I typed a chunk about ins then I realised yeah, it's really about $500 per month. DUH
BTW baby is 7 kg & 65cm tall!

Gosh this thread is hot! I wud strongly advise to take pneumo, rota and even chickenpox vaccine for our baby. Now can use Medisave to off set a bit. Before govt announced, I paid all in cash (heartache) but no choice as the risks are not worth taking.
Are you all mommies still bf? When do you plan to stop?
I also paid cash for the pnuemococcal and rota virus. sigh....
Hey mommies, are any of you on facebook? Lets add each other so that we can see updated photos of our baby (as they grow)... so amazing that they are all April babies, and we mommies are actually making friends here... how nice.
I'm still partially bf-ing. But really sad, cos so little milk...
will probably 'tong' until Dec. Then see if can 'tong' until April.
yah, I also pay by cash until recently. but my own fault cos I didn't apply CDA
My pediatrician is approved by AI, so I can pay via CDA.
Next Jan, will do the pneumococcal jab.
hee, this is latest pic of my pumpkin pie
finally, she's no longer gawking at camera.

Hi Ladies, my baby is born in April 2009.
Sorry that i am late by a year... Cos i just got to know this forum.
Hi to everyone, how's all your baby doing?
I already trained my baby, he can NG every morning (standard) - Only once a day (big pool of Sh*t) when baby with me.
But when baby go Baby sitter house, sometime he NG 2 to 3 times (little bit by bit) <- bully baby sitter
Too much milk, can't stop... so I only give him 1 formula one day.
Plus now he is having solid, my breast feel like exploding...
Anyone same feeling?
Btw, i bought life insurance & ILP for my baby total about 200 per mths.
Beside that, maybe papa & mama can convert to AVIVA medisave, your baby insurance will be free... that's why my agent did for me. plus a top up of a premium annually to cover for the cash that we need to pay upfront.
Maybe you guys can consider too.
I try my best to squeeze milk everyday...never had any engorgement since post-delivery 3rd day... breast has not leaked milk since Jun. so envious...
My baby has been rejecting milk on-off lately.
yesterday she only had about 2+ feeds but she polishes off cereal & puree with ease.
mummies, how much is yr baby drinking & eating now?
Christine has about 4+ feeds of 6oz, eats rice cereal & 2 purees for lunch & dinner. Thot it was little until I read another mummy's post. cos she used to drink 5 feeds.
She measures about 7.5kg (about 75% percentile). She hasn't been putting on much weight lately but then again, I guess she shldn't be putting on 1 kg per month. else she may become fat.
Sori, I'm not very active on facebook... not enough time also.
My boy about 4 to 5 bottles of 200ml, 2 porridge & 1 x fruit. weight 9.4kg now (90% range)
Btw, anyone bring baby to swimming pool? I had started.. if anyone go i can tag along.
My girl is now exactly 7 months old and she is still on full BF. Like 7LegSotong, I have so much that I gave it away initially. Now, my output has decreased tremendously and my dear daughter's input has increased.
I want to ask all mummies out there - are your babies eating solid already? I tried giving my dear daughter oatmeal with my breast milk, she refused to eat. When I eventually managed to feed her, she will throw up maybe 1-2 hours thereafter. I have tried it when she was 6mths old, it was the same so I stopped. I tried again today it's still like that. She only want to drink milk
But she got 2 teeth already..
my baby dont want eat porridge can anyone advice?
cereal also she dont want...
she only want drink formula milk mix with the brown rice.
one day about 180 to 200 ml for about 6 feeds
but she is still so so so skinny,....
she 7mth plus but i think near 7kg nia =(
so skinny skinny but leg like gt musscle....super duper active than isit high metabolism?
ping26, my girl is taking about 160-200ml of milk each time, 5-6 feeds a day. She doesn't seem too keen on solids :/
jongivy and pinkytham, my baby seems to eat solids "on and off". I usually give her two heaping tablespoons of brown rice cereal and she can finish it on some days, but scream and struggle like crazy on others.
It can get terribly frustrating. Am currently giving her Nestle brown rice cereal but gonna try her on Healthy Times. Really hope she likes it.
Planning to introduce sweet potatoes, porridge, fruits etc gradually over the next few weeks.
Guess if your baby seems rather resistant to solids, you just have to persevere, keep trying different foods, and be super patient...
Slowly feed... sometime my baby also give me a "yuke" look when try new things.. then i try again in 3 days.. and he eat a bit..
Btw, I am starting to give FM, but dont't know which one to give. Can i just try a few brand, then give the one he suit most?
Does anyone do this?
