OMG azzima, this so much sounds like my lil boy! he wants to suckle everytime before falling asleep! the pacifier wont work! he has to latch.. gets up once or max twice in the night, both the times suckle for few mins and sleep..
Me a stay at home mum so dont consider it as an issue.. can understand how hard it can be for a working mum!! i am sure there is some simple solution out there..
FYI, I bought my breast friend nursing pillow when it is on sale. Director chair I just choose the cheapest in shop which is high enough for my head to land.

I used to sit up on bed, reach for e bf pillow, carry my boy up from cot beside my bed n bf him til he zzz again. that is every 2hrs every nite. Now he's so heavy i barely can carry him up from my sitting position. So he co-sleeps w us now. Every 2hrs he'll stir n demands for feeding then i'll latch him side-lying position. But mid of e nite, gotta transfer him to e other side so can latch e other breast. So troublesome but what to do?
Asher has been taking cereal since 4mths. Now he's 5mths already, i've been feeding him apple, pear juice n these few days started him on pumpkin, carrots, sweet potato, mixed into cereal so it's not so boring n bland. He loves it! Each feeding can take 4-5 tbsps, twice a day.
me going for my boys first haircut tmrw wish me luck girls!
Thats great to hear azzzima! glad your gal love her food! I hope to intro porridge n purees soon too since my boy is no longer interested in milk.. I feel.. He doesn't drink as ,much now..
Hi swathi, my boy n your boy r born on the same date 10th of may! )
Sparklingstars! so good to hear our boys born on same day!!
my boy born 3.2 kgs, today he is around 7.1, me soo worried bout his weight gain.. mother in law say my husband was this big when he was just 2 months old! sigh!
my boy eats cereals and purees.. i think after he starts porridge his weight should improve.. i will start in couple weeks..
he drinks so little milk these days.. likes cereals better.. i directly latch him, so dont know the exact intake, but im sure he drinks much less!
Esther, how heavy is Asher now? Nearing 8kg? Dez already 7.2kg.
I have not't started my girl on solid yet. Maybe this week since her Daddy just came back from overseas work trip. My Healthy Times has been sitting in the kitchen waiting to be opened.
We had our first haircut yday.. went to the baby spa in marine parade central.. baby T also enjoyed the swim in their baby pool post haircut...
Asher is about 7.5kg. Enjoying cereal twice a day w fruits n vege added. I'm sure Dez wil like cereal too. Then you can slowly intro other flavours. Milk is stil very important but asher is drinking much less in e day. Latch just few mins then lose interest . Like just drink to satisfy thirst, not hunger. So i'm beginning to add a spoonful of formula milk into cereal to add nutrition.
I just did a test. Doctor said no heart rate, similar to 8wks pregnant. dont't know if there is still a chance for me that it's fake. Baby is still?? I dont't want to be in any operations yet. Pls help. Sad!
azzzima, my gal same as your last time, have to latch before doze off, now she doesn't want it so much oredi, but need pacifier, hubby keep giving her when she woke up at night , she is not for milk, can go back to sleep once pacifier put into mouth or carry her.. i also dont know how to wean her off, tried before but fail.. she can't deep sleep unless super tired..
My girl still wake for night feeds. Lol coz I'm engorged I latch.
