My girl also has jaundice. 9.2 level. She is now doing the tanning treatment in the nursery room. So poor thing! I hope she can go back tomorrow.
For those taking epidural, I have an allergy reaction. I itched the whole body after the effect wears off and was also shivering badly when I was taking it. Nurse told me its common.
Yup I also shivered and vomit after epidural. then fever also. One whole day didn't eat..
I also shivered 1 night at hospital during my sleep but I didnt took Epi. I dont know why. It only last like few min, uncontrollable.
Blackangel, how much are you feeding your baby right now? Since our baby dob is quite near.
fyi, epi should be taken early and it can be adjusted.
if you wait till you too pain, it is dangerous to take epi because you might not be able to stay put for the dr to insert the epi into your spine.
So my gynae suggests me to take epi early.
Anyway, yes I applied nappy rash cream.
And If ya baby has nappy rash (red spots), best to use wash and wash her backside, avoid using wet issues.
you should latch on, tried again, the more you latch, the more it stimulates ya breast and will increase milk flow.
I have a book on successful breastfeeding, if you keen, I can photocopy a few pages on how to latch on correctly.
apply nipple cream for sore nipples
If formula milk - 70ml.
Has reduce her intake, since my gal has tons of wind in her tummy and the more milk she drinks, it's reflux and flows to her nose and throat which block her breathing.
now everyday I need to clear her nose.
as for the jabs, I will bring her to normal GP.
Initially plan to go polyclinic cos it's free but thinking of the queue and waiting time, I sianz .
so I called my family doc who can give such jabs as well, every jab is $100+ and she doesn't charge consultation.
when I brought her back 3 days later, her jaundice went to 12, pediatrician said anything below 15 is ok, no need to go into hospital.
last visit her jaundice level is 7.4, and pediatrician said very good, no need to come back and test again.
14 days to go to end my confinement!!!
i really pissed off at times with my CL!!
today she took my chocolate bread to eat again w/o asking me.
My hubby purposely bought the bread for me, he knows i love it!
i dont't mind if she wants to eat it, just open mouth and ask. Assuming everything in my house is hers!
Then last night my gal cried at 5am and she woke me up to breastfeed and she said my gal is very hot and has heat rashes. Then my hubby went over and realised that she has off the fan for my gal! Then when questioned her, she claimed that fan not good for my gal, my gal needs air con!!!
Then day time she claimed that dont't let my gal drink so full since she will reflux and will choke her, so she gives my gal 60ml of breast milk, then my gal cried as she wants more, then she told me not to give her too much, we need to control her then at night she feeds my girl with 70ml of formula milk so my girl can drink till very full and she can zzz.
what logic is that?? Aren't she aware formula milk is more filing than breastmilk.
Then my gal keeps on pooing cos breastmilk easy to digest, and she is lazy to keep on changing my girl and told me that as my gal develop nappy rash, we need to give her formula milk to solidify her poo!
i'm so angry!!!
To add - today I had my first massage, feels so good....
The massage lady said I have too much wind in my body...
while massaging I complained to her on my CL, haha...
Anyway, she charges only $40 per session. And she does not collect $ every session, she collects it until you finish all the sessions.
and the no of sessions depends on how many you want.
everyday she will come, I planned to ask her to come for continuous 7 days.
Today also start wrapping my tummy! I cannot stand that flabby tummy anymore, hopefully it disappears after 7 days.
Any mummies keen in her contact let me know.
My lady cost 55/session, including binding rith ginger cream and baby massage. Around 75 mins. She helped me to clear my bowels and blood clots as well. Today is the 2nd session. So painful!!!
Blackangel, you must be so mad!! How can she do that, eating without your permission?! I think you have to separate the food in the house.
I went to pediatrician yesterday, he suggested my baby of 6 days old drink 75ml/3 hours.. And that it should be feeded on demand. So you might wanna see how again..
Baby turning 7 days tml. Will jaundice still come back?? My suggested boiling red dates and let baby drink so that jaundice level drop.
you give her 60 for how many feed?
dont let your girl sleep with CL. Mine during the first night without CL,cry for like 4 hours in the night, she couldn't sleep. I dont know is it she miss the CL smell or CL pat her to sleep. And now she need someone to pat her to sleep.
i have to hold her to sleep till 6 in the morning.
Hi hi I m a July mummy, I m interested too! Thanks!
is it too little? What your baby weight at birth?
mine is 2.8 kg.
Then you cannot quarrel with CL. If not, at night dont know what she will do with your girl.
I quarrel with my CL, then next day I send her home. Husband say since already quarrel, the grievance already there, cannot keep her. She may do something funny to us or baby. The night we quarrel, we lock our room door and handle our baby ourself. A lot of time CL wake up and want to help us. But we said we want to learn taking care of baby.

My baby birth weight is 3.12kg.
actually CL got feed her till 90ml, but ever since that evening she choked, we decide to cut the volume till 60-70ml.
Agreed with what you said- I worried if scold CL or made her unhappy, later she do something to my girl... ;(
13 days more to go!!! I keep on counting down and tell myself to tahan...
how you managed to tell CL to leave?
Black angel- actually my thought is different.. For me I will tok to her nicely 1st, if she doesn't hear.. then it time to play rough .. Cos d more you scare of her d more she will take for granted.. you never tok to her , she will never learn.. although I doesn't hire CL.. But some time I c my mother in law do tins that I dont like I will say out also.. I won't kip to myself.. I tin no need to scare of her, cos any tin happen.. Still can report police..
My boy has jaundice too.. But tin d lvl only 7+..
Up a bit .. Previous is 6 .. then d doc ask us to visit again on thurs again.. To check again.. Wonder how many time we need to check their jaundice lvl.. sigh.. Recently his appetite very good.. Every 1 hr will cry for milk.. My hubby n mother in law + me , goin faint.. Drink n poo alot.. N d poo is getting more n more smelly.. then they say shld stop bf.. no matter what I still need pump out my milk .. Let him drink .. If not will b a waste ..
N currently I found that I have lose weight.. Wonder izit b cos of d bf? After pregnant I'm 57++.. N now is 52.8 kg.. Bout 5 kg I lose.. now only left d flabby tummy.. @_@"
Mrs Wang - hows your confinement with your mother in law?
My shld say is fine , feel so bad that I thought she was d 1 who hurt my boys butt cos him has bit skin peel off at his private part.. Actually is d 1 she ask to cme over to teach her how to bath baby.. She recall that d aunti ( her friend ) wear alot of d accessory on her hand .. Mayb is 1 of d ring cos my baby skin peel .. sigh..

So that means the moment we are warded can already ask for epi even have not't checked or dilation?
Hear so many horror stories about confinement ladies. Hope mine would be ok. She is frm agency.
