This is a discussion on EDD in June'09 within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Originally Posted by M&M i cried uncontrollably last nite... feeding my boy for 1 hr slightly out. he was sleepy ...
Oh my M&M mummy.. hugs to you..
Breastfeeding really not easy. and additional to the pumping one side and latching on the other, additional to not enuff milk to baby and all the crying.. it really make pple pek chek.
you got store milk? if not enuff then formula . no choice. yr baby need a lot of milk now too.
i stop pumping already. with my wound, taking care dear daughter, resting from my backaches i cannot time to time feed her breast milk. i dont have enuff now cos i was lazy .. pump lesser n lesser day by day.
my mother in law somehow raise her voice at me too 2 days ago. i was so pek chek i hide myself in the rm and cry. ( i always didnt lock the door cos scared she need my help. everyday whenever im resting, she would bring baby in and ask me carry her first while she go make milk. so i in the middle of my sleep would still have to wake up. )
she open the door and saw me crying. she say dont always cry during confinement. Baby i let you take i not carrying her back stay still cry.
i just keep quiet .. she close door i cry even more.
mother in law is like that. communicating with her is not as if speaking with our own moms. theres that gap there... and when she scolds or raise voice, i cannot say back or add anything back cos dont want conflict if not worst.
so keep in our heart wait for husb come back. husb come back from work already so tired, hear all these also stress. when my husb see me so stress, we quarrel and then he will go downstairs or straight away go work even if he is early. later is not we depression, husb later is the one kena depression.
hai... what to do... must do self relaxation to cool down.
baby poo yellowish is normal...
my elder 1 was on enfalac but tis 1 is on friso.
my prince Joven Soh has arrived on 18Jun 2009 11.30am at East Shore Hospital!
Birth: On Drip w/o epi was on gas and Pethedine.
Labour to birth: less than 3 hour.
Experience with East Shore Hospital: Excellent for the confinement food and the nurses and midwife are very friendly.
Gynea : Dr H eng Tung Lan
Was dilated 2-3cm on 17Jun afternoon and my gynea confirmed that baby's head is down and ready to be out. She say baby can come on the 18jun so ask me to admit to hospital on 18jun 0730hrs.
When arrived at the hospital the staff checked me in and I waited at the labour ward for my gynea. So the mid wife took my weight ask me to change into the robe and pump liquid to let me pass motion. After that I was ask to lie on the bed to wait for my gynea to come. I waited till about 0930hrs before my gynea come as she have another 3 babies to deliver before me.
At 0930Hrs my gynea come and break my water bag and put me on drip. The contraction did not start till about 1050hrs after the strong contraction the mid wife came to check me again but I did not dilate at all so she ask me to have a jab ( Pethedine) to let the cevic dilate than I agreed.
At about 1120Hrs I have a strong urge to push the nurse checked me again and she ask me to try pushing than she say stop she call my gynea. when my gynea arrived she just ask me to push. Within 3 huge contractions 1st push my baby's head is out and 2nd push I can feel his shoulder coming out. Than comes his loud cry...
As Im a hep B carrier so I cannot breastfeed him immediately got to wait till discharge. So only breastfed him on 20jun though breastmilk is very pethetic but will still perservere. ___
ya... can celebrate earlier but not later.
but tis time cant celebrate so only giving out some cakes to relatives n vouchers to close frenz
we can't do anything... endure endure endure... i kept telling myself... endure will lead to a better future i kept telling myself.
my milk is not enough so everytime after breastfeeding my boy, i will feed him with formula.
so your in-laws has agreed to let baby stay with you in Singapore?
old people knows nothing about breastfeeding but thinks and acts like they know everything... old people if those lucky ones immediately after birth got breast milk will feed their baby with their milk cos it is cheaper... those that milk takes a few days to come will give up and say got no milk n stop breastfeeding. so what do they know about breastfeeding? they know nothing. nothing at all... and yet expect us to use their methods...
my boy is on similac. he was spoonfed with similac at Kandang Kerbau Hospital because he is too sleepy to wake up to drink for the whole day and he needs to take BCG that nite so afraid that he cant take it so i requested the nurse to spoonfeed him.
so i think might as well buy back the same milk since he already tasted it and is ok with it.
yes.. after husb talk to her. since im on maternity leave, i can take care.
if dear daughter stay in msia then i do what at hm oh.. onli can cry and miss my baby.. Problem is when i go back 4 months later. ( taking straight ) prob will let them take care for a while. husb ask me dont work... will c how..
i hav another problem now.. hubby quarrel wt mother in law. very very very jialat. he always dont want stay at home and calls me outside. now i kiap in the middle. i understand his situation that he doesnt want to stay at hm.. bt i here like that... now not my problem is theirs... i also dont know hw...
good . now that baby can stay with you here. hubby ask you dont work then dont work then baby dont have to go m'sia. i dont want to work but my hubby want me to work...
i dont know what the quarrel is about but it is best to lend your ears to your hubby and when you see your mother in law, just keep quiet.
yah .. all i can do now is keep quiet. whenever husb cum back dear daughter will wake up like waiting for him to bao. and when my husb playing comp, dear daughter turn her head to look at my husb. i cum back see her keep looking at him.
told husb to go take from mother in law to bao her.
dont know but seems like dear daughter knows whats happening. prob quarrel happens infront of her.
i'm about to fire my confinement lady.. anyone using confinement food catering??
think i should order for the remaining 2 weeks? Cos mother in law works.. dont think can get nutritious food if i ask my maid to cook huh?? Though it seems like simple >> ginger and sesame oil huh
thos whose mother in law doing confinement for you, what do you do for food?? mother in law cook for you ?? is it manageable??
my mother in law cooks for me. i hate ginger so first few weeks she cook i dont eat..can see she quite sad that she cook i dont eat. but its not the food not nice, its just that i hate ginger and sesame oil smell.
so she just cook chicken herbal soup, pork with black sauce ( beside she fried the ginger, but i always never take ), curry, vege, tofu... thats all .. she cook like normal food but i never take those seafood.
hmm if you want eat really confinement food, think have to order. but if chin chai like me then maid cook shud b ok . just dont touch those seafood or yam those "poison" kind. hee..
If you really dont like ginger n sesame oil then you can use the "yellow wine" to cook, take more soups.
Like MomoMummy mentioned, avoid seafoods... If you on BF then try to cook with Huji Bu Yao Jing.
Have been drinking for the past 3 weeks n was quite good.
My confinement lady left today, i am so sad that i keep crying....SOBS!
My boy is 3weeks old, he's drinking 120ml milk now with interval of 2.5hrs to 3hrs, at times he will cry for milk after 2hrs but i try to drag it to at least 2.5hrs. Wondering is 120ml too little or too much for a 3weeks old baby?
Btw how much milk your little one drinking now?
