I going crazy.. Glenn is more n more naughty. Whenever I put him on bed he starts to cry, till I go carry him.. die nanny sure go crazy .. how sia.. Aiyo eh .....
your hand pain Momo?
How you calm yourself?
Do you feel stressed sometimes?
Mreow, My hands pain loh lol, Glenn is 6.2 kg now, I put him to bed using slow motion, so hard n taxing for my arms..
Calm , listen to soothing music hehe, yes I m very stressed. Cos he sometimes cry too much. Until vomit somemore. But I get used to it .. Mreow you ?? you stressed ? your Danika need you to carry all the time or not? I realised Glenn gets very cranky on the day when he goes someone else's house.. will start to behave very abnormally after that when reached home. Is urs like that??
Anyways my Glenn starts to dont enjoy his feedings.. keeps struggling halfway thru feeding.. like me forcing him to drink.. but he still hungry one.. but he keep pushing bottle away

After milk, I'll lay Danika down by herself to play.
Then she can entertain herself awhile only.
Then after that she'll cry!
Either to be carried & walk around.
Or carried to be put to sleep.
Like that ...
After being carried to sleep, I'll put her down slowly.
Sometimes she wake up again, sometimes she dont't.
Only at night, I'll feed her lying down so she dozes off straight away after drinking.
Now I'm not so stressed yet!
After 5march I might be stressed!
Cuz my mum will be gg back Thailand on 5mar & I'll be all alone!!
On days where Hubby on flight & not in spore, I really hope I will be able to cope!
For me, I dont needa eat. I just need sleep!
How about you?
Sleep or eat is more IMPT to you?
Before I leave house with Baby,
My mum will use her Index finger to touch the sole of our feet,
Then touch the index finger to Danika's head.
The Thais believe that this will 'protect' baby and prevent evil eyes from disturbing baby when she's outdoors.
So when she come home she won't be cranky!!
Glenn could either be full & not hungry,
Either wanting a Slower milk flow,
Or even a faster milk flow from the bottle teat,
Try changing to bigger teat flow?
Or he might just want to comfort suck. And not wanting milk! So pacifier will do.
When Danika Fuss & cry at my full boob, I unlatch her & i will realize that I'm having letdown where milk drips very fast.
She's not happy.
So I transfer her to the other boob which I use at the prev feeding & she's more calm there cuz Milk flows slower.
She just want slow flow milk.
I Have to experiment here and there.
When she's super hungry, slow flow she will fuss n cry.
So I'll swop to the full boob Thn she b ok.
When she cries & trying both side dont't work,
I know she's not hungry & just wanna suck but dont want milk.
Since I never give pacifier & can't give boobs also cuz milk will come out when she suck, and she clearly doesn't want milk,
I unlatch and walk her around.
She'll sleep after that already!
Wow congrats baby Glenn is very healthy and good sized at 6.2kg... my Gwen only 5.5kg... slow drinker...
Hi Mreow Mreow,

Mreow, okay now I know Glenn is normal because Glenn also the same behaviour as you. He will play by himself at most half an hour. then when he realise no one play with him, he will cry.. need to be carry and walk around.... as for the index finger thing I think I will give it a try!! Maybe Glenn is being bullied..
Sleep is more important. Same as you. Lolzzz I love to sleep.. before I Am pregnant I always sleep for very long hours ...
dont be stress dear.. when you r alone, do your things during the 20 min when Danika is playing by herself? you can do it .. you might be difficult to cope during the first few days.. after that you will become expert !
Oh ok.. I intend to go buy bigger hole teats too.. let Glenn try.. I only suspect the teats hole too small then Glenn angry so he pushes away the bottle.. thanks!!
Lovepixie, Oo I think Glenn's weight somehow down . I hope he grow more!!!!wah.. poor baby kena 1st degree burn, so scary to put baby in infant care..
Any mummies babies like to only be carried over shoulder? Means upright?
Last edited by momopeachgal; 13-02-2013 at 06:43 PM.
My gal likes to be carried upright too!
Not over shoulder. just on chest. Lk tummy time position!
Lovepixie, Danika does choke at letdowns too!
Momo, thx for the encouragement!
I will jia you next month .
Think I'll feel lonely as the house will b more quiet after my mom leaves!
Mreow, When your mom leaves, the house will not be quiet, it will be full of Danika's voice! ^^ By then she can make "ohhh, ahhhh, ang grrrr" . i think by now she is able to do that already right? =) I like the feeling of being alone with Glenn because I can have him all by myself!!! Oh, Glenn sometimes do not like upright on tummy.. he prefer upright over shoulder.. He weird one .. sometimes whatever position also cannot..
Alone with her ok.
Alone with her n her cries, not ok!!
At the moment I prefer to have either hubby or my mum around with me n danika!
Hehe. Think I need some time to get used to it.
Carry her for 15min my arm aches already. Then have to put her down. Omg.
I can't carry her around n do things 1 hand man...
you can momo?
what Tym in d morning does Glenn wake up for good n not sleep after milk?
Mreow haha yaaa my hands ache Aldo whenever I carry Glenn... he too heavy already!! N I van only carry him 1 hand to eat haha.. or drink water... things like wash things that need 2 hands can't lol.. btw his wake up for good is usually in the morning after feed and change diaper.. but now seems changed.. see the time know.. 3 plus in e morning.. hr doesn't want to sleep.. I try to make him sleep for the past 1 hour.. really need. Lot of patience mannnn!
Yep Need a lot of patience!
I was awake earlier too
Feeding my milk monster.
I put Dania to bed at 10pm. Hopefully she can last till 9am!
These days usually she wake up for good at between 9-11am.
Now awake feeding her again!
Later at 7+ sure gotta feed again.
How many times you feed Glenn from 10pneumatic onwards?
So last time normally what tym in d mornibg he wake up for good?
Waa at least Glenn can watch you eat while you are carrying him.
Danika likes to b on d move so I cant just carry her n sit down. Haha
Happy belated Valentine's day momo!
just you n me here!!! Hehe
I'm here too. Hehe
Pumping ... Yay maintain 5 oz.
My way of carrying Gwen is let her sit with the back facing n touching my body. Or let her head over shoulder n support back n bum.
Anyone try carrier wraps ? It helps. Boba or moby. Also SCS or Ringsling. Google it.
Mine is boba carrier. Not the same as wrap right?
Babe, the other tym I pump then I latch, nipple pain when baby suckle!
Then I never pump again! Scared pain
Hi mummies! Long time no see! Been MIA for a few days..
Hows everyone doing?
Mummies, do you know any good counseller that can help of post natal depression??
Mreow, I go by feeding on schedule.. every 3 hours he will go hungry and sometimes earlier. . Actually his waking up for good changes everyday but now because I have to bring him to nanny everyday so sooner or later his waking up for good might be 6am...
your Danika dont let you sit down? She will cry until you stand up n walk? Even when she is in upright position or over shoulder??? So she also someone who needs to be carried so she can sleep???
If yes, how come ? Is it your mother in law or mother carry her always whenever she start to make noise?
Can she fall asleep on her own lying down?
Have you been thru a time when whatever position you carry her she still cry??
Glenn is so hard to burp nowadays. .. anyone experience that too???
Mreow lolxx.. Happy Belated Valentines Day!! Lolololxxx
Tcmy, welcome back! How is Clara??? Good girl?? Btw y you want to find about post natal depression?
Momo.. Clara is great now.. though experiencing the same thing as Glenn, hard to burp after meals. She can sleep on her own now.. after she last meal, she will sleep till 7am for next meal. Im letting her sleep in her own cot with 2 chimes hanging beside her so she can move her hands n play with it.. till shes tired, n fall asleep on her own.. but sometimes she will still cry n want me to cuddle her to sleep. Its like a routine now, every night i'll sing to her to sleep..
How do Glenn sleep? Will he tilt his head one side to sleep? Im worried, Clara loved to sleep on her right.. now the right part of her head is flat, n refuse to sleep on her left. How?? What to do, coz its quite obvious that her head has a irregular shape now.. by adjusting the pillow n only let her sleep on her left?
Yes, need information on counsellers that help pple on depression.. sad to say, i was once like this.. stopped medication few years back, tried to control.. but these days its getting worse.. *that* feeling keep coming.. thats y.. but the problem doesnt lies on Clara.. instead, by looking at Clara's smile.. makes me feel much better..
Yo, back again.
Mreow I guess you pump too hard . Try convert it to manual n c. you can control the strength . I remember you say nipple too big so you should try a diff size. Unfortunately only Medela, spectra, has bigger breastshield for pumps. Getting it online or overseas is much cheaper.
Momo, dont worry any Glenn 's weight. It might be due to reverse cycling. Ask your paed n c.
Mummies y you all run here no go our facebook group hahah.
Danika is first put on bouncer after her milk to self-entertain.
When she makes 1st cry half hr later, means have to play with her.
2nd cry means she wanna be carried.
3rd cry means carried & walked!
Then she might fall asleep.
If she cries while walked, she wants milk.
Thn if I feed her lying down at this point, she will KO.
Everything is in stages with her!
must progress stage by stage!
Momo, its been some time since she fell asleep on her own.
Last week only fell asleep once in her own after afternoon milk. After I put her down when she's drowsy but awake.
Yes Momo, must walk after being carried.
She will only let you sit for a while.
When she feels bored, I have to carry her n b on d move!
Glenn is ok with you just sitting all d way ?
There was once or twice no matter how I carried she will fuss.
This only happens at night after 10pm.
Cuz she's sleepy n cranky as I kept her awake.
I used to kp her awake till 12mn. Haha.
So that she'll sleep thru.
Anyway during those 2 times, my mum will
Take over carrying her & she will be soothed almost in a short while.
Its lk danika can smell me and wants to suckle.
Anyway now not much cuz her bedtime I change to 10pm.
So she doesnt get overtired.
you mentioned that you ever get very stressed with glenn cuz he kp crying that you just leave him alone & you tk a breather right?
My mum is the one who carries her & walk.
mother in law is the one who carry, shake & rock but never walk.
Sometimes difficult. ...
Cant say anything also .
My hubby wants me to tk care of baby & not work.
Cuz he thinks mothers are the best person to look after their child.
So I think
Ive decided not to go back to flying!
Sacrifice dual income!!!
Momo, these days jialat.
She can only fall a sleep either through carrying & walk,
oR directly sleeping after Bfeed lying down.
2nd method most effective. Usually Will KO.
1st method, she might still wake after putting her down.
sigh. .. yours?
That's y tk care ourselves better, we train baby our way.
Even though might b more tiring.
Docs advise to put baby down/stop singing/stop rocking when they are drowsy,
Not 100% asleep so that they learn to sleep on their own.
I was using manual that tym!
Didn't wanna try auto cux scared! Haha!
Omg. I dont even know if nipple size is d problem or im simply not used to it and overthinking .
Wish I can pump with ease & not feel pain.
I do hope you are feeling better.
Ive not been in your shoes but I know of ppl who had post natal-D.
Please do take care & dont't think so much?
Is your hubby not supportive enough?
Sometimes I think hubbies are to blame if mummies get post natal-D.
