My brother thought I am pregnant again cos my tummy has fats. I tricked my mum n him that I am. And they believed it. My mum said poor thing your baby will not get enough attention. Hehehe I am such a bad person. At the end of it I told them the truth that I can't be pregnant cos I am having my menses currently.

Do you guys have your personal time? I only have it at wee hours
Of the night. And I won't be able to have it much after going back to work. How I wish I can b a full time housewife. Haha. Fat hope.
Anw just to share...I ve bought dr brown plastic rings at mothercare just now. $7 for 3. There's 15pct discount storewide. Fits well with the glass bottles from hospital. We wanted to buy swaddle me but sold out. My baby getting bigger so need to buy a bigger size. So crowded ppl going crazy over it. Haha I m glad I left her at home cos the nursing room was so packed.
Oh my baby was super cranky yesterday. She screamed when I wanted to take her from my mum. My mum had to carry her for hours. Surely her arms are in pain. Sigh. My daughter is becoming a big bully. Last night we went out for dinner and she was still cranky. We didnt bring our stroller so i lay her down on the sofa In the restaurant. Like a lost child. Bad parents. Hehe. She didn't sleep much. In the end slept like a log after we reached home and in the afternoon. Poor thing I even thought something was disturbing her on Friday night cos she looked very scared and breathing heavily. She only calmed down after listening to recitations from the Al Quran. Thank God she s ok now.
So far she loves to laugh when she sees the ceiling fan but there wasn't any at my mum s place. Bought a toy for her so can distract her abit when she needs attention.

How long do you intend to swaddle? I did not swaddle my girl at night already as she enjoy doing stretching. She sleeps from 10pm till just now feed her while she is sleeping and I guess that feed can last till 6-7 am later.
Chinese 7th month in a couple of days. Avoid bringing your child out at night during this month. What do you mean by personal time? Doing own things at home with baby or doing own things alone? Lol it makes a difference you know. I'm now 24 hours with baby because you can't expect me to trust old grandpa. Can't even trust her daddy coz he still doesn't know how to take care of her yet. I guess he can only take care when baby girl learn to talk and point out what she wants. *pray*
Work is stressful but can have your own income no need depend on hubby. Personal $. Kekeke.
Yeah housework never ends... Salute to stay at home mum. Yeah even some free time at work taken over by pumping time d. Reach home take care baby and prepare her for next day and prepare ebm for next day from freezer... can imagine.
What are your babies weight now? Did mummies here monitor weekly gain? Read that usually bf baby will gain bout 150-250g per week. This will indicate we are feeding them well.
Oh I lay her in a corner I sat beside her and my hubby was in front of her so she wont fall down. The other time I cldnt eat my meal in peace cos she was cranky and the funny part was she ll only be cranky with me. Other ppl carry her she ll be so obedient and like an angel. Sigh sigh. Lesson learnt no matter what bring stroller so both can eat chop chop and she can have a decent place to lie down. Personal time as in your very own. But true about what you said it s still the best if you do the caring part for the baby. We will not be satisfied with how other ppl handle them. I ve been swaddling almost every night. She is easily startled. Sometimes she ll end up crying.
Last night my baby was super cranky too after we came back from outside. In fact whole day she was teary. Her cries were so scary. Never heard such loud screaming before. She screamed till her voice went hoarse. Me and my husband surrendered and ask my mother in law to calm her down. Thinking she had fallen asleep, my mother in law brought her to her playpen in my room to sleep. But she woke up and I carried and latch her twice then she fell asleep, but still kept jumping once in a while. We were so tired that we slept till this morning and I missed 2 pumPing sessions. Guilty.
My baby is about 5.8kg now. I always like to weigh her.
i swaddle my baby too at night, she likes to scratch her face with mittens..
i dont't have much personal time.. going out also not enjoying, not enjoying the food either..
yesterday brought baby out to airport to pick my sister In law, first time going out, seems like quite successful, she is fine and not so cranky.. but i dont't enjoy the food n also i dont really enjoy the moment..always worried mini mini things..
Oh ya, my mum said dont't bring baby out till night, try to avoid coming back home late, or else they will cranky sometimes..
my husband said let rest for 1 yr and see , hahaha i still have the phobia..
If your baby not cranky when going out I think you should use the opportunity to wind down rather than stuck at home. My girl enjoy going out on stroller, everytime kicking the stroller bar.
7th month starting soon. Not going to bring my baby out if possible.
10 hours - night & 5 hours -day
My girl sleep 1x2hrs, 3x1hr (estimate) session during day.
10 hours during night. (1-2 feed no burping either just sleep)
I try not to talk a single word during night feed and keep lights dim.
I am still trying to tune her timing. But I think it can only come naturally by her.. Sigh..
Do you all notice that our neighborhood dogs have started barking these few nights? Eerie
