lastly, did kk hospital give mummies and baby when discharge?
sorry, got to post here. cause i need some help. im 1st time mummies.. kind of very anxious and excited. hehe..
thanks in advance (:
Finally last day of confinement. Awaiting the bliss to have daily shower .
Yeah I will need more time to recover luckily decided to go back to kl with mom for another month of help. Else now I carry baby up n down also tiring. Think she is now 4kg plus.
Kena "suan" by my mom saying now you know it's not easy to be a mother. More sleepless nights to come at least until 6mths.
i feel like i m the lazy mummy.. impatient.. like incompetence to do all the mummy job..
what is the best duration to give breast milk ?
1 month ? 2 months or more..
i know the longer to give breast milk the better but anyone know what is the best duration ?
i felt very lethargic , and no appetite to eat more, but i am hungry .. and thirsty ..
i brought my ebm from the fridge , put cooler bag then heat up when it is needed.
i am not sure is it correct or not ..
today i brought my baby to see doc, as she was vomitting 2 nights after the night feeding.. may b i am more paranoid .. but it just give me reassurance that she is fine.. when i told doc that i fed her FM for night feeding, she said i am lazy mummy .. hahah , she said actually it's about the same as ebm.. usually depend on baby how long they can sleep..
Mayb i am really lazy.. can't go back to normal life , sleep normal hours .. sigh..
still have one more week to go for my confinement..
when i booked e ward, i was given a list of items to bring.
do you have that?
basically, you need
- a set of clothes for yourself to wear home
- a set of clothes for baby plus mittens n booties
- original marriage cert, your IC, hubby's IC if you wanna register baby birth at KK
- you can use your hp and laptop at KK, so you can bring those and chargers
- camera if you like
other items like sanitary pads, diapers, wet wipes were all provided for.
dont't be discouraged by other people's opinions.
we get tired easily, even emotional....
baby cry n cry, makes us feel like crying too....
giving FM doesn't make you a bad or lazy mom.
cheer up k!! just do whatever you can......
my baby's jaundice still hasn't clearer yet.
in fact, it went up abit higher from 110 to 134.
doc has told me to cut all chinese confinement herbs n ginger from my diet.
also, i had sore throat n fever this morning so guess i'm too heaty....
even though my mum said no mummies will ever get too heaty during confinement!
keke... i must be the odd one out!
Mummies using electric pump,
Do you prefer pump breast shield with massage silicon or just the plastic ?
If you do not massage n just pump will it at one stage not able to pump out milk?
I notice when I use manual pump I will need to compress at different sides to get milk out. Otherwise purely pumping single drop also difficult to get when the letdown has ended.
Whomovedmycheese, who took those lovely photos for your girl girl? Sweet.
Thanks esther ..
very emotional this month .. may b i know tht confinement lady is leaving soon.. and it's depend on my own ..
