How often are your babes pooping? Is once a day considered normal?
Dl28, dont be too hard on yourself, just dont go to that gp anymore. Is your little one ok now?
Nightingale, can share your pediatrician's contact and address? I'm thinking of changing pediatrician, my current one is at paragon, she's good but I feel it's a little costly after seeing your pediatrician's charges. My pediatrician charges $150 for each 6-in-1 jab, not inclusive of consultation which is $60. Thus each visit will set me back by $210 already! Furthermore cannot claim medisave/cda. So I'm considering whether to bring my girl back at 2 months.
How are all your little darlings doing? My girl at 1 month already 4.875kg, now when we go out me and her daddy have to take turns carrying her, cannot take it! Haha..
Btw any mommies who are giving your babies fm only? My girl at 7 weeks is drinking 170ml every 2 hours, it seems like a lot to me..
My girl can poop up to 4 or 5 times a day, maybe it's coz she's drinking alot? Sometimes she only poops once a day, but the quantity is like, woah! Super alot, clean till 手软 haha.
Anyway I read that bf babies can poop a few times a day, while fm babies may only poop once in 3 days. So I guess once a day is perfectly normal.
Wow, 170ml every 2 hours! Mine seems to be cutting back on her appetite a bit, still taking around 120ml every 3-4 hours. My girl is on about half formula, half ebm (alternate feeds). She poops around once a day, but yes, the quantity is quite massive haha! Sometimes almost afraid of bringing her out if she hasn't pooped for the day, lol!
By the way, have you started bringing your little ones out to shopping malls etc? How's the experience so far?
wow~~ 170ml.. mine still at 125-130ml every 3-4 hours (EBM sometime latch).. she is turning 8wks tis sunday.. time filies.. she is about a small pkt of rice now.. lol
I went vivocity before... want to shop also difficult... Though being out does stimulates her quite a bit... She will look here and there... But...My gal wont sit in the stroller for long... And cries to be carried... When she is hungry.... She was crying all the way to the nursing room... Aiyo I tell you!!!! dont know how to describe the experience... Moreover im w my parents!!! Cannt imagine if im alone?! How to shop!?!?!
sigh i think i need more practice...

My baby likes to sleep whenever we bring him out haha guess he like the pushing motion when on his pram. He can sleep the moment we step out till the moment we reached home..about 4-5 hours w/o waking up for his feed.
Btw do you all wake your baby up for feeding??
My GP told me that pneumococcal has already been listed together with the rest of the routine vaccines... No longer under the optional portion...
Can view info here:
Children Immunisation, Vaccination, Childhood, Vaccine, Singapore - Routine Vaccines
Frm the above article it says "MOH's Expert Committee on Immunisation (ECI) has recommended that PCV be included into the National Childhood Immunisation Programme from 2009"
Yeah, ive also read about the controversy over the "over-immunised" part... One of the vaccines apparently is "suspected" to be linked to Autism... Although they say they hav yet to research more on it........*
I got a friend who, becos of the controversy... Decided to postpone certain immunisations until her child is older....
Thanks for sharing nightingale! I will probably try your pediatrician for baby's 2nd month visit. Paragon is too far and too ex man, haha. And yes I stay in bukit batok
Btw do you mommies have any preferred diaper brand esp for night use? We were using pampers, but I find that it's no good for long use. Baby's mattress and top would be wet when she wakes in the morning! Also there was once we brought her out in her stroller, and when we carried her 3-4 hours later it was dripping urine! My goodness. Looks like pampers not so premium after all. Then we bought huggies s size and it seems abit small for her at the tummy area. Wanted to buy huggies m size but there are so many different kinds! In the end we bought mamy poko instead, so far so good, but I dont like that the side adhesives are not stretchable. Hmm.. Any recommendations?
Pneumoccocal quite unsure because scared if got the sickness is worst. So I asked you to see if you got some reason not to take it since I see you never take.

I'm using Pampers - although it is mostly soaked through in the mornings, it's still better than some others I've tried like Huggies and Drypers. Huggies gave my girl rashes in the first 2 weeks of use, so I stopped. For Drypers I dont't like the sticky tape, very hard to remove. Also the elastic around the thighs seem rather tight for my girl, maybe I have gotten too small a size, cutting appears to be smaller than Pampers.
Bee - maybe can check the way you are diapering your girl? Pampers shouldn't leak so easily - my confinement lady taught us to remember to pull out the frilly parts around the thigh areas, otherwise leakage will occur, which happened to me before (and it wasn't pee that leaked!). Or perhaps your girl is just peeing quite a lot, in which case any brand diaper also will need to be changed more frequently I think!
Heard recommendations of other brands like Mamipoko and Petpet, but dont't dare to try anymore because of previous experiences with the other brands. So sticking to Pampers now, but it's strenuous on the pocket!
Maybe we can write in to MOH to enquire. Then again I think we are likely to get quite standard replies - i.e. whatever is listed as compulsory we should send our kids for those vaccines.
Sigh - sometimes it doesn't help to know too much. Yet we dont't want to just blindly follow whatever the majority is doing without understanding the risks. Just pray hard that our babies will be okay.
