How often do you all change baby diaper? I changed 4 hr interval, but baby still developed diaper rash. Prior to that, applied cream but still get rashes. Thou she's not crying but kinda heart pain to see her butt cover with rash.
I change every time diaper is wet/soiled ... Even if it's just a little bit. I tried changing at certain intervals but my baby developed bad rash so I just kept changing. I also bought a different diaper rash cream as the one given by Thomson Medical Center made the rash worst (pureen diaper rash cream). My CL recommended mustela brand and no rash so far
I need help! Breast super hard now, how? I pump again for 1hr at 12 just now. Can't just keeps pump rite? My nipple got bruised now!
Btw if breast milk been warmed. How long can it be keeps at room temperature??
For diaper rash, I believe Mustela's diaper rash cream is useful. My CL said it is good to wipe n wash baby's buttock when it's stained with poo so she's doing it for my boy now. She just carry my boy to the sink to wash his buttock follow by applying the cream m change diaper.
For your query re warmed breast milk, I googled but conflicting info. Guess maybe if anyone of us next talk to a LC or pediatrician can ask n share the answer.
Oh forgot to mention that I dont't use baby wipes on baby bum when diaper changing. I used the first 2 days I was home and her bum got red so I figured she must be sensitive. So I went back to using cotton and cool boil water to wipe her bum
Hey Mommies, time for my story!
I admitted myself to hospital yesterday morning 12am, just like Gynae instructed. Insert pill everything fine, but too excited didn't sleep much.
5.30 bowel prep. Feels that vjj is a bit sore . Thinking that you dilated quite a bit. Later Gynae came at 8am say only 3cm. Sian
6am feels like got alot more poo. Went to release. After that, felt my first contractions. Lasted 1 min but repeats every 4 mins! Oh no. Thinking I'm in for a rough ride.
7am breathing techniques and imagery dont help to control pain anymore, ask for gas even though Gynae not here to see me yet. Now contractions every 2 mins, grabbing hubby's hand/wrist, any part I can manage when pain comes.
7.30 decided to sign epidural papers, thought I can take it, but I know this is just the beginning. Must take all your advice, go for epi straight.
8am Gynae came, say might deliver late afternoon. In my heart I think, what! 8 hours more! Peng San. Fanatically asking for a anesthetist .
8.30am finally caught hold of one, informed that epi takes 5-10 mins for effect. Me already like vegetable. Cannot move, contractions every min, breathing gas all the time.
9am back to being alert. Epi is great, just like you guys said. Sleepz....
11.30 Gynae say dilate 8cm . Good. Then he realized baby heart beat dropped to 50. Then give instructions for more oxygen. No effect. Start to rush for c sec. I was like... No.... I dilate so much , why must cut!!! But I know bo bian, otherwise baby in danger. Reluctantly let things be. But hubby realized at the last
Moment that baby heartbeat went back up.
He alerted Gynae, checked, lucky . No need to cut right away. Monitor.
15 mins later, 9.5cm dilated. Ask me to push. But I cannot feel anything.... Nurse teach me technique but I always get it wrong, posture not straight, use too much leg, let out too much air, push not long enough.
12pm everyone realized that Everytime I push, baby heart beat drop. Gynae decided to do vacuum. 12.19pm baby out! 2.97kg cutest thing ever.
Yay congrats Gracecwz! Luckily you managed without c-section!
To mummies who are bf your baby - how much milk are you giving per feed? When I give EBM to my baby who is today 1 month old, she's taking about 90-100ml per feed. Just wondering if this is too much?
When i experienced super hard breast, my massage lady taught me to take a milk bottle.. Fill up with hot water n compressed at the hard area then massage towards the nipple.. Roll the milk bottle at the point of hardness towards the nipple.. Then pump / latch.. Then compress while pumping . The hot compressed is to so call melt the milk so that it will flow out.. It really work for me..
I always max keep for 2 hours and throw the warmed up ebm if baby not drinking within the 2 hours..
Gracecwz, gong Xi gong Xi!
