Hi all mommies,
how's life after birth? My baby was down with colic one week after birth. Very difficult to handle as baby felt in pain when his colic attack him......finally i see better in my baby lately, the attack seem subsided a lot and less cranky. I had all the sleepless nights and lost 14kg in jug 2 weeks, amazing!!! just wanna share my time with the baby......hope you gals are doing fine.
I can understand how you feel.. i have this mindset when im bf my #1 and my supply is low. But also because of the high costs incurred, i perservered and managed to bf my boy for 8 mths. The reason i stopped is because i went overseas for hoilday for a week, and even though i pump when in hotel, my supply dropped tremendously when back to Sin, so no choice, have to stop bf.
This time round, i hope i can bf for at least 6 mths or longer, but i know once i return to work i wont be able to bf . Anyway, whatever the timeline, as long as we did our best, baby will still benefit.
Today going out short while with Hubby to town.. Finally I can get dressed!
Jovin, I'm using avert breast shell, not sure about medela. The breast milk collected from the shell must be emptied every 45 mins as per instruction. Anyway the package comes with both sealed n ventilated shells, so if you want to collect milk for baby, can use e sealed shells, if wearing out, then ventilated shells better, can wear longer, but e milk have to be disposed every 1-2 hr also.
Breast pad is still worth buying, you can wear it to sleep or go out if your bringing baby along. It prevents your breast milk from staining your top when it leaks. The breast shell is only good for use when baby not with you.
Hee.. Seems like we r breaking loose slowly. I'm also heading out today to view my new house and go to nearby mall to grab some baby supplies and my own supplies. Maybe at e same time shop for clothes to wear on baby shower.
Purpeace, yes slowly break lose. But I realize I miss my boy and my body dont allow me to walk more than 3 hours.. Backache and feels abit pressure at the uterus dont dare tell mother in law later kena nag again. Yar I went to buy the shell with my vouchers. lucky no need to use cash. Now back HM.. Argh back really hurts.. you all got the same issue? I am in my 3 rd week confinement.
Szecare, same low milk supply. No matter how much water I drink. Pump at 11pm 2am 5am 8am then latch on from 10/11am then 2/3pm and then 5/6pm .. Latch 3 times still not enough to push up my supply. very sad. Thou of buying those herb frengreek (spelling may be wrong) but I abit scare. Not sure safe anot. How to ta Han any longer!! dont understand seems like ppl hold a diff look at formula fed mums. Anyway still hanging on.
My baby got jaundice ...
I mean getting higher whilst going for chk @ polyclinic
I am letting go my Medela Free Style pump which i bought in August 2011. Reason to let go as my baby is down with colic....thus cranky most of the time that i have no time to pump.....sigh. I can't latch him coz he is fussy n very impatient......sigh. I bot the item from Paragon which was selling at $699. I am willing to let go at $499...... I had also bot many Avent milk/food container which i like to give away.
Let me know if you are keen.
Out to get my hair done for full month miss my baby ha ha miss my pump too!
what else can I do to bond with my SON! Sian..
KimYen, let me kno if your baby recover from jaundice k!
Kimyen; hope ure baby recovers from jaundice soon....
Seems like everyone bz preparing for 1st month...
jovin; Ure son gonna sleep with you after confinement? Can't tell mother in law you want bonding time? Hiazzzz
at my place instead, my parents pamper too much I think:/ they try not to let both girls cry ..when #1 was older than 6 mths, told them not to give in to her so often.... but alas..... Now she a lil bit strong headed and wants things her way or she'll make a uber big fuss.... Hiazzz
maybe my fault as well as I tend to buy whatever she wants as well... Hiazzz... Mistake learnt...
Jovin, I think you should have a say where and when you want your boy with you... First few mths important for bonding, esp before we head back to work....
