How about if on formula milk? Need to feed water? Or same as breastmilk, no need? Cos I am feeding my baby formula milk these few days until i recover.
Oh my goodness, i just saw the cabbage i bot for engorgement on my lunch plate.. Faint
Think maybe I should pump out to see how much I have. After 2 hr feed he still hungry I super tired. Ball carry position he dont like, I can't carry him too long also, carry him front both ok but I scare of my wound. Hubby want to feed him FM now. I just pump out or maybe feed him awhile, cos of my wound.
Hear from my mother in law, my father in law is so happy n proud of baby! Keeps telling ppl around about him n his size! just now I went nursing ward, mine is really big there.
dont eat cabbage stem. Will cause wind to it stomach.
My mother in law is telling me the nurse who help her yday w/ her kidney problem told her dont feed baby breast milk now 2 week later then feed cos of the medi I taking now! I told her my pediatrician say can so I feed! She keeps tell me dont better! I know she kanchiong cos 1st grandchild but he is my baby also mah! Anyway I dont care! Lol

I wake up very easily at the slightest sound that baby makes. The other day I was napping in the room n I thought I heard baby cry but it was the tv showing a baby crying instead -__-
Ok i shall avoid both eating and using cabbage for now.
Googled if baby should drink water n below article refers
Should I give my newborn water or sugar water? | BabyCenter
just for sharing. When my baby had jaundice thenn reading was high, my CL actually told me to stop bf for almost 1 day n during this while, she boiled certain water for my gal to drink instead. Bcos my instincts trust her, I allow her to do so. My baby's jaundice now ok.
I find myself now more open to acknowledging those do called 'old wives tales n practices' now that I m a mummy. Previously I will laugh such practices off but recently whenever ppl commented infront of my gal if she is easy to look after, if she crys frequently etc, we tend to have gal throwing a tantrum within the same day. dont know if coincidences but too many such incidents. Now I will remind my friends not to ask qns of such nature when they visit me.
Last nite after my sister in law commented that My gal never cry, later the same night she cried so loud n long, first time like this n I dont know why but ended up crying with her cos heartpain to see her crying so. My CL said she has tummy wind so discomfort n pain. I checked her buttock also redness due to nappy rash. Feeling so sad when see my gal like this. Luckily this morning better.
As my CL leaving soon, nowadays I kept thinking if I can tk good care of my gal. So many possible scenarios can happen n will I be able to know how to handle. Mind in a mess now.
I m still thinking if to have 2nd child. Put aside the financial commitment, dont know if I have the energy to go thru the whole process again.

Omg omg... I'm finally going in tonight! Although not strictly a may mummy, but I glad I'll be seeing my boy soon.
Just now Gynae say we going in tonight, baby kick and kick! Seems he also very excited
Wanna ask now my boy is 3 day. Should I feed on demand?? He was BF for 2 hr but still hungry , 1 hr later FM. Now going to 5hr already still sleep! Nurse ask me to feed him 1.5hr ago but he dont wanna wake up!
Initially I thought of giving up latch on my boy for night feeds (between 12-5am) but it seems like he is behaving well at night, not fussy and doesn't cry during night feeds. Perhaps it is night time n he is sleepy as well. And when I latch him on I can really feel the bonding between us. Though he may not really know I'm his mummy (or does he?) but I dearly know he is my son. And it can be a happy experience feeding at night too well, I may eventually resort to bottle feeding in d coming months but I want to enjoy this kind of bonding for now. So Mummies, though we are going thru difficult times but dont give up easily as you may find the kind of 感动soon
Wow, 45min n 90min...did you feed till your little one stop sucking? I always unlatch my girl after 15 mins...
Would like to ask when will we start to have milk after delivered? Heard about 6-10days, is it truth? I tried pumping now and it's just a bit of the colostrum which are few drops only.
