my girl should be able to be discharged soon!! yippee
To give so many boxes of cake sure going to burnt a big hole in your pocket. Any chance your hubby can have a word with your mother in law? She doesnt feel the pinch cos $ doesnt come from her and she will have face in front of those pple. I am lucky in a sense, my mother in law dont bother about the cake thing. So i didnt give any. Just invited mu family n frenz to buffet.
Wow sunkissed, so fast you had build up a good EBM bank! I have not started. Good that your gal is going home, then she will not need to alt FM.
Climsp, I think family planning is a matter of urs n your hubby... dont let mother in law influence you. Trust me, the energy level when you get older is different, I felt so drained... Moreover the longer you wait, you might forget some know how about taking care of new born n you will have to start all over again...
Same here, luckily my in law dont bother about baby shower, no invited guests fm their side, only my mum side.
brought my girl out once my confinement ended. she was out the whole day from 10am to 6pm and did not cry one bit! think she is a sociable girl lol
i latched her once she starts to do the i-want-to-eat gestures so she starts nursing just before she cries. i used diapers so that her bum remains dry. she met my colleagues in her sleep and everyone carried her, it was quite peaceful. then we went to queenstown ikea and a few other places, managed to latch discreetly in public with a shawl covering. brought only diapers and a bottled drink for myself to prevent dehydration.
i use cloth diapers at home and she has no rashes. up to now, i am still breast feeding her on demand. have tried pumping so far only once to stop the leaking in the day. both side leaks whenever i am nursing. the pumping did not really help so i stopped. intend to pump only when i moved to my new house in july. i plan to go back to work in either august or september, not confirmed yet.
my girl has been doing cluster feeding from 6pm to 10pm, with 10 to 30minutes apart, for around one week already. it sometimes gets to me when she becomes very fussy but it reduces the night feeding as she will wake up only at 12midnight and 4am to nurse, so i get plenty of sleep. initially i wasn't used to it and wanted to wake her up to eat at 2 or 3hours interval but the pediatrician said it is normal and now i am relaxing abit. since she started cluster feeding, i also started to let her sleep in her cot since i won't have to wake up so often to nurse her. she was sleeping with my hubby and me in our bed before that. now she nurses about 10minutes on 1 breast before she is full, for day time.
since birth, i have been waking her up at 7am every morning to sun her because of jaundice and still continued this though her jaundice is officially over. think the sunlight makes her do the cluster feeding faster so i thought to share this with you all, hope your darlings will be able to faster sleep through the night.
actually i want to ask, if anyone boils the confinement drink (eg: red date, longan, etc)? how long should we continue to drink this? my supplies are running low but there are still some herbs left over and i dont't know how long to continue drinking? yesterday my confinement food finished (i ordered from new baby) and now i am getting my mother in law to cook for me. i am chinese and she is indian and *sigh* i am not sure what are the indian herbs/food that i can't eat. so i've been eating fried rice and beancurd soup, etc. she dont't know how to cook chinese food. it is a bit of dilemna for me now.
actually i also would love to have #2.
immediately after delivery, i was so determined not to have #2 but when i saw how lovely my girl is, i changed my mind. but part of me feel that my body may not be able to cope, scared to have gestational diabetes again. if it happens, i think i really need to cut off all carbo during pregnancy. but anyway, my hubby doesn't seems to want #2. but if delay too long, i think i will be too old. i am now 34. hubby was worried that by the time my girl turns 21, we will already be in our 50s and how to support #2? so most likely we will only have my girl only.
may i know how you introduce your baby to your dog? how did your dog react when they first met each other?
i got 2 dogs and i am only letting them meet my girl after i move to my new house in july. i am quite scared that my dogs will not accept my girl and will bark or bully her. they are quite noisy and have always barked at walking toddlers.
Thanks Butt8rfly for sharing... I didn't know there is such thing as cluster feeding... Recently my girl seems to be asking for milk every hour, we thot some thing is not right and worry about over feeding... More over its very tiring cause each feed take about 45 mins....
I had my c sec on 9 may. When can I conceive again? One year later? I am going to be 32 this year.
Anyone using Drypers / pet pet? What is your review ?
btw, Fair price is having promo for S size, 10.95 (if i remember correctly) for 2 pack.
i have 2 dogs at home too.. i started by asking my mum to bring my gal's mitten for them to smell when i was in the hospital. thereafter, when i return, i got them by bending to their level and allowing them to sniff my girl's presence and of course talked to them that this is our new family member. so far, they were okay with her and always lie around her cot, as if guarding her.
Same I intro baby to doggy by baby towel from hospital also! 1st Day back home, doggy tend to bark at baby, but from 2nd day start whenever baby cry doggy will run over to see him! Now doggy is like a guarding angel to my boy!! Lol actually my boy dont see to irritate by doggy bark maybe uses to it when inside me.
I see. Huggies newborn seems abit small for my girl, but mammy poko n Huggies s size are too big... Abusing leakage side way...mi tried Drypers s sample just nice but not sure about the qlty...
So nice to have dogs at home... Dogs are pretty friendly, shld be no prob.
Any of you using NUK bottles? I have 4 big and 3 small one. I just bought them.. Only use a few times.. dear son dont like and he prefer avent.. Letting go at discounted price.. Please PM me if you are interested. I am also giving away free avent pacifier for 0-3 mths.
Petpet : not sure as i have not used before but my friends didnt like itOriginally Posted by Tannie:657007
Drypers: not as absorbent as huggies and mammypoko, it leaks! My cl said it cause rashes for her grandson
Do you think shoud have our own facebook group? To share knowledge and pics of babies and to organise gathering? Good idea?
Gradually after she calm down, she noticed my baby gal n I got my hubby to carry my gal, bend down n get my dog to sniff her presence. It helps that my dog is those type that dont really bark n children friendly.
My dog is actually my Bao Bei so now with baby, I dont really have much time with my dog. Thus, at times when she see me carrying n kissing my gal, she will be emotional n lie down dejected. At times my dog will tears too. I actually feel heartpain to see my dog this way but cannot be help. Luckily my hubby will carry my dog whenever I m carrying my gal.
Alot of adjustments on my dog. She is now sleeping with us now. Now that I need to place the baby cot in my room, will need to shift my Dog's bed. Poor gal. Hopefully she can adapt soon n when my baby grow up, playmate with one another.
Wah so many mummies with dogs! I dont have pets, alrdy so tired with one baby. Can't imagine how you mummies balance attention between your babies n your pets... Salute...
when the first day i bring my baby back, my dog he seems like very very curious, but he never bark, when i was pregnant, i always told my dog soon he will has a littel sister, and show him my tummy.
now whenever my baby cry, he is the first one who run to my room, look at us like telling us she is crying.
Any mummies have brought their baby to shave botak for full month or intending to do so? I will onli cut a bit of his hair but not going to the barber. Do you know where to bring baby for haircut? I only know baby spa at places like harborfront center
