Anyway she has more than one kid. But she takes npl after the 4mths leave. Like till they turned 6mths. I can see she s very worn out but I guess a mother s sacrifice for her child and wants the best for the kids. it s up to individual actually. no offense to mummies who give fm to their babies.

thx for all your replies! Initially I prepared to take leave and bring baby to clinic already.
The night I went back, my sister called me to use a little soap inserted into baby anus, after 2 hours, she had huge amt of poo on and out of diaper.. but these 2 days, no more poo again.. hope she won't depend on this method anymore.
just came back from 5 in 1 jab today, nurse told me that can feed baby with a small spoon of water before and after milk each time. This is for clean up baby's mouth only, she also mentioned no prob if no poo for 1 week if baby is fully on breast milk.
azzzima, you can pump that fast! I usually takes 20-30 mins, but I will be away from my seat for almost 50 mins each time. scared will got complaint sooner or later.
I got stunk in a adhoc meeting yesterday and I was like sitting on a hot pot after my pumping time passed for 1 and a half hours ( I pump 2 times about 4 hr++apart at work). sometimes I really do hope I can stay home. I will enjoy the coming weekend very much.
whomovedmycheess, what a wastage you thrown all your ebm! can we drink the ebm ourselves? i know it sounds awful, but these are liquid gold and good 4 health ahaha! my stock going to expiring soon. so far my baby still drink fresher milk which i pumped the day before. I will mix them from tomoro onwards..
Me new to this thread! my baby boy is may 2011 born!
its so nice to see you all discussing babies of same age!
Any of you thinking on solids yet?
Want to sell a brand new POLKA Basic™ STROLLER WITH TRAY at $110 (neg).
Got as a company gift.
he seemed so ready.. doubled his birth weight, almost good neck support and used to smack his tongue when he saw us eat..
hope its ok!
still breastfeed rest of the times...
i was confused between healthy times, happy bellies and earths best..
my sister in US swears by earths best.. but in singapore the problem is its available only in selected organic stores.. however as my boy touches 6m mark i plan to introduce earths best oats cereal.
coming to happy bellies, again availibility was the issue, also it has added probiotics DHA etc.. as i was introducing at 4.5m, i dint want any added nutrients.. i personally think its better that babies get their share of DHA and probiotics through mothers diet..
Welcome! M thinking of solid at 5th month but have to check w doctor first.. my boy is still crying almost every evening.. He will cry for an hr then doZed off.. Give him gripe water then he stop.. Was thinking might b the wind in his tummy.. Sigh.. So I scared if I were to start solid, it ll b worse for his digestion..
You have one super active girl out there! my boy very low on weight percentile.. 20 - 25.. height 50-75.. i keep worrying about his weight gain.. but like you said may be the activities burn calories.. he rolls in almost all the direction and moves forward in super fast speed.. can lift up his chest for about 3 to 4 minutes..
I moved to singapore last month.. done with all the jabs in india.. the paed here as well as in india gave me a go for solids as he turned 4.5.. hence i did.. I am sure your paed will guide you on whether your girl is ready..
My baby is also low on weight percentile.. 20 - 25 and height 50-75.. She is barely 6kg at month 4. but during 3rd month visit, dr mentioned should be about 6kg at month 3 already. I wondered whether the current booklet standard is more coming from FM feed babies? still lots of worries for her weight, intake...she is so persistance, till now still not accepting bottle easily, every feed is about 45 mins. bib, clothe around neck area are all wet..
regarding to add solid, theory saying bf exclusively for 6mth is the best . so i want to introduce at month 5.5. however I always receive comment from my sister/mother in law saying that i'm stubbon, why follow theory, should have added solid, water etc long time ago... heard these comment too much, sometimes I also question myself, as 1st time mum dont't know which way is best for my baby.
