Bless n hope that there ll b no conflicts when it comes to baby..
I only beh tahan him with all sorts of ridiculous action. you know those net rocker traditional type, bottom can adjust one to halt or rock. At halt position he try to rock baby by pressing down the spring making those ngek ngek sound from the spring. Imagine myself sleeping on it I will find those sound irritating and bad for hearing moreover infant. Have to teach him, SEE here can adjust.
Got one day saw him rock her fast because she's crying, haft tell him off not to do that and told him if she really wanna cry you think rocking hard can stop her crying ?
Sometimes I put her there playing alone while I do my kitchen things, he will
Come tu tu tu and go off back to sleep, then she started looking for people. Sigh.
Azzzima, is your girl using pigeon S or M teat now?
Any mummies bought bumper playmat alrdy?
Times flies! My gal is turning 90 days tomoro and I háve barely 2 weeks+ left before going back work. Kind of worried as my gal never use bottle feed after 1 month, she even dont't like pacifier, always lick her mittens instead..
Always got no time to come to here, occasionally be a silent reader, really admire you all cope very well with baby and your own time.
Totally understand the feeling towards to the old generations! For myself, dont't know how mAny times I lock myself in my room feed and pacify my gal despite some 'seniors' knocking my door hard... Think I won't forget what I hav experienced.. Next month in laws come down again, supposing to monitor my maid when I return to work. But I have some strange feeling, I trust my maid more, at least shes not smoker and won't wear outside sweaty clothe to carry or poke my gal! Sigh, anyway hope can be smooth in the transition time with more ppl help..
Talk back my gal, she is quite a small drinker though I dont't know exact how much she drink per feed now. She can't empty my 1 breast. When use bottle in mth1, just about 60ml. Wanna ask whats Your gal / boy growth parten? My gal mth0- 1 gain 1.2 kg, from month 1 till now only gain another 1.2 kg in 2 month..dont't know if it's ok or not..
For mummies already back work, do you have nursing room with power point to pump milk in office? Looks like I can only pump in toliet in my environment
Hi Isy, remembered you use amada pump and medela manual, is that amada flexi breast shell standard size that can be put on medela without gap?
Hi bbanna , nice to hear from you again.
Growth pattern of my girl kinda similar to yours. 0-1 month gain 1.4kg.(perhaps contributed by 1st week mix breast milk and fm)
1st month-3rd month only gained 1.1kg.
She couldn't empty both breast too except during spurt when feeding frequency increased.
Is your girl on bottle ok? My girl drinking 80ml now and I suspect not her usual appetite as she can drink 80-90 in 2nd month. 1st month 50-60ml. Kinda hard to tell whether the bottle is the cause of low intake.
I sold my medela harmony. I do not have Ameda flexishield. I think should be ok if they are standard 25mm shield.
I am back at work today. So far pumped once. No nursing room and it's a male working environment. And because it's a male working environment, the female toilet is almost mine, so I pump there. So far so good. Intending to pump soon but got meeting at 4pm. Hope I dont't get too engorged. I better go manually express some first.
just wondering, Isy mummy how many times do you pump in office each day?
i had slight drop in milk production before.. what i did was to shorten the interval between the pumping sessions and the supply came back again.. my friend took supplements to boost supply instead..
True for me about the engorgement.. I didn't have engorgement since about 2.5mths.. And the supply dropped for me... Am starting work tml, hopefully I'll get to pump twice in the office..
I'm getting engorgement at night. Seldom happen in daytime, dont't know why.
Isy, do you go infant care to latch on between your pumping schedule?
My gal still reject bottle, was trying just now but she cried loudly, so latch on in the end.
My pumping env worse, at customer site and the ladies toliet always full house, I plan to occupy the handicap toliet at other floor. Hehe..
