This is a discussion on EDD May 2011 within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; i asked around n they all said not teething.. scared is the "fake tooth" cause from milk in the mouth.. ...
i asked around n they all said not teething.. scared is the "fake tooth" cause from milk in the mouth..
but i really dont understand why she can suddenly drop the intake so much.. till now she just took 200ml milk so far in total since morning.. aren't she hungry?..
i m worried
Just monitor her weight and soiled diapers.
By the way what is fake tooth? Never heard before .
is kind of white spot on the gum and will have the same effect as teething, will cause gum swollen etc..
how could a baby just take 30 -40 ml for 3 hours interval??
lots of ?? now.. sigh
kikilow, it may not be teething.. some said mayb stomach got wind, some said just her mood..
As I'm not feeding bottle I did not experience that. On the other hand I felt my girl drinking more now. Last time drink 1 side now can still take another side. Growth spurt I guess beginning last 2 days. Today 3rd day. But I am experiencing difficulty putting her to sleep. Wrestle with her most of the time coz she dont't want latch, dont't want pacifier, nothing seems to please her until I hug her tight tight or press her down legs and hands with pacifier then she sleep.
my baby also doesn't poo everyday.. sometimes once in 2 days, sometimes once in 3 days. then on the day she poos, it will be a lot of poo, and could be twice a day too! Wonder if it is not good for this 'accumulation'... besides prunes, what else can help? more fruits? =)
My baby just poo! A lot some more.. Poo until pants kena.. But now that she has pooed, it's good enough. For the past few days, she didn't take in much milk. Immediately after she poo, she was able to finish her milk. Hehe.. So maybe she was too full of poo that she couldn't take more milk. Lol..
What a bad timing to feed my girl. She had her feed at 8:30 just now. Cranky until 10pm fall asleep. Still sleeping, I guess will be 5 hr sleep until 1:30am. Now dont know whether I should sleep lol.
Yah, my aunt says that the Chinese always have this saying that the more baby sleep, the faster and better they grow.. Not sure if it's scientifically proven though.. She also mention that if baby dont't sleep, they also have nothing to do, so just let them sleep more..
Could it be they have developed preference for breast over bottle? Read that this is common stage after 2 months eventhough they drink from both for first two months.
Or could be teething?
my gal so far will poo everyday, i will "ng" her till she poo, not easy, sometimes she throw tantrum to m by screaming.. may be can eat papaya or banana, not too much, but would help..
my gal also drink milk at 8 plus last night, then sleep through the night till 4 am. thought she would wake up earlier so can feed one more but in the end we let her sleep because she is sleeping soundly. yesterday she just take in total 430ml of milk, so little.
Usually my baby will have a feed at 8 plus 9 then play or sleep till 11 plus 12 and drink again. Then sleep till 3 plus 4 and wake up for feed. Last night after her 4 plus feed, she never really slept already. I also never really slept, need to put pacifier in her mouth when she starts looking for it.
icejelly, only 430ml per day? how much should your baby be taking? My girl is about 6 weeks old and supposed to take about 600ml with 4 kg weight, now taking only about 500ml and i thought that was little and was trying to force her to drink more..
only yesterday she intake is this low, usually her daily intake is 540-60 like tht, for 6 feeds.. i tried to force her to drink more , able to increase her feed to 120ml per feed but in the end she drop down to 80 ml for the past week .. so got to accept tht my gal not a big eater..
now we got to just stick to 80 to 90 ml per feed, today she is able to finish so far..
I think at least each day more than 500ml is ok gua? still not sure, have to see next visit to pediatrician, if she said the growing rate is fine, then i m ok..
my gal still play happily , poo , smile.
my friend asked me to let baby move more , or play more, so they will feel hungry ..
Isy, we also wonder how come with such low intake she still can sleep, in fact we didn't switch off the light purposely to let her dont't sleep long, but still she sleep soundly, even my hubby make some noise she still sleep through, so we thought she might be tired as yesterday we brought her out
