Wow. 4kg, that is really a very small girl. On the hind sight, a smaller baby also means you can carry the baby longer.
hi mummies, need some advise here...
is there a need to pump when baby is latching the whole day? normally my son will be full after latching on one side of my breast.
all along, in the past, i pump regularly for 3 times a day, even if i latch him on. because of this, i had built up a supply of frozen milk and my son will never finish the milk before they expires as he only drinks 60ml every 2 hours when bottle fed.
i continued to pump regularly in fear of decreasing supply
Hi Sept mummies,
Just wondering when can babies hold their heads without support? Do we need to specially train them or just let nature takes its course?
Wow! your baby is super fast! so you've been carrying baby upright since 2 wks old? May be that's why he can hold his head w/o support faster?
Actually my baby also can hold hishead momentarily when my confinement lady carried him upright when he is just few weeks. But i heard some ppl say that it's not good to carry baby upright when he's too young coz not good for back bone? So i very rarely carry him upright... is this back bone thing a real concern? what do you think?
When baby is awake, sometimes i left him in his cot or rocker then he will play by himself so then i can relax a bit which is good. ^^
But dont know how when i start work...hahaha
Any mum experience with their baby's poo is green? *worried*
Currently, my mum in law is helping me to look after baby when im at work. My baby weighs 7kg.. Feeding on FM 150ml every 3 hours..
He has taken his 6 in 1 jab but so far he has no fever.
[quote=Stan;272602]My baby;s poo is green sometimes too... yellow as well... sometimes green first then yellow in one single poo... haaa..like rainbow..
anyway i checked with the pediatrician and she said is normal...[/quote
My son's poo poo also gets green at times..traditionally it's due to being frightened..he self-frightens himself at times, esp when he was half-asleep (during REM or dreaming) or during bathing if i put him down into the bathtube or carry him up too fast I give him a tiny bit of 'Jin Feng San' n it'll be gone.
Anyway, it's alright to be green in poo poo at times.
He is just 8weeks old n I've already given him 125ml since 6th weeks or so. In fact, thinking of increasing to 130ml at times as he is screaming for more. However, once or twice he can't finish the milk.
Also, now he starts to show a trend. Every 12hrs, his consumption is lesser. 4-8am & 5-8pm. Feeding frequency remains as 2hrs on avg but yet to reach 6kg
Now I reduce my milk expressing frequency fm 6times a day to only 4. Also taking care of baby on my own (n cook own meals) n night time be husband's care. Most of e time can only clear some housework on wkends. Needs to laundry baby's clothes n hanky every alternate days Tiring............
Initially thought of gg back to work by taking 12wks' leave (that is gg back on xmas week).
Now do not feel like gg back to work too So most likely be taking AL on the last few working days of 2008 n go back in 2010 instead.
I also heard my friend mention this.. Maybe we should the doctor when we see them for our baby follow up check..
Share with me when you ask the doc.
My son also able to hold his head when he is about 5 weeks but I will normally support his neck still whenever he is upright. He loves to be sitted upright as well..
Believe it isn't that ideal n beneficial for them as their backbone is still soft.
The same goes to not lying flat. I do ensure that baby has a balance time - lying flat to rest his back as well as carrying upright altho he now k support his neck a short while.
Its not a bad idea to feed your baby 150ml. For me, currently I am giving him 100ml, and he is asking for milk every 2hrs. I believe my baby is currently close to 7kg .
