Wah i finally get to rest abit.. baby had not slept for more than 15mibs since morning.. latched her every hr.. in between had massage so ask CL give her 60ml.. but she still did not sleep.. from 3pm till now latched here n there.. she cry when being put down.. sleep for 5mins cry again... i just fed her and did not burp her.. let her sleep... hope she doesn't vomit out... now sleep quite soundly.. pray she gets some rest!!!! It's been a tiring day... CL lying there while i bz w baby in room.. sighh no choice coz i latching.. sigh i have not't got time to pump for baby's night feed.. only 95ml in fridge.. may have to latch her through the night liaoo..
I'm wondering if i shld get some DOM to drink everyday.. to nourish my body.. they say its crucial for 1st month as body is quickly recuperating and absorbing all the nutrients.. after that may be very hard to build back the strength .. really hope i can be full of vigor again .. and if i'm having a 2nd baby..i'll have the strength to go through all these again..
lingz: YES!! my baby likes doing that - the peeing bit. she's done the poop thing a few times now... argh
kary: which studio did you do it at?
Hey reiann & lingz, my baby also did that afew times.. yesterday i was latching her.. she pooped and it leaked to my legs... massive poopy mess.. this morn was latching on bed.. asked hubby help me burp her for awhile while i dress up.. she pooped on hubby and it stained our bedsheet! Sigh keep changing bedsheet nowadays..
Last week changed as baby vomited onto my bed while i was burping her.. shld i learn my lesson n not do it on my bed? haha its the most comfy place for me to feed her....
Anyone sleeping w baby on bed? Just now the massage lady say to make both baby n i relax, maybe can lie diwn to latch and let baby sleep w me throughout the day since i'm latching sp frequently... like that baby n i get to rest.. seems ideal but i know baby may just kick up a big fuss n wants to be carried... anyone tried lying position to latch? i have uet to try.. only googled n saw pictures online...
Me, I went for further chk up due to the lump on my left breast. At the top. Was due to block duct.. The doc aspirated it (using injection to extract the blockage) it subsided but it came back Again. doc says it may return so I jut need to ignore it for now cos I m breastfeeding..
Its also due to the fact that I'd a mini cyst in my breasts before I was pregnant.. So now can't do anything.
Piglimcan give me which doctor and clinic uv been so i can have appointment too, thank you.
Hi Meltie, I also did not hav Dom.. In fact I quite hate it.. Plus breastfeeding, so I dont feel like drinking too though prenatal class say 10ml ok.. I also did not drink chicky essence cos not exactly a fan.. My CL also did not cook very nutritious soup for me then.. The most she cooked was papaya soup with fish bone which I truly love! Haha.. Now I'm fine too, maybe cos during confinement I sleep thru the night so more rest? My mum and grandma keep saying confinement food very impt, but I also dont know how true.. I just know the food very heaty cos I got outbreak!
Oh ya.. As for latching while lying down.. I tried it cos now need to feed baby at night.. The middle of the night feeds I will bottle feed ebm cos it last longer ~ 3hrs.. If latching she will keep waking up then we will sleep even less.. The feed at 5 or 6am I will latch her lying down.. Even if she wakes up 1hr later for milk again it's oredi morning, I would be more awake.. Haha..
But I suck at latching lying down.. How do you all do it? Cos I tried latching baby after I lie down but the angle of the nipple makes it a bit hard for baby to latch on so she ended up very frustrated.. So I will latch her sitting up, then lie down together.. But sometimes suction will break too then hav to try a few times.. Haha.. Poor baby..

Did that side of your breast supply lesser than e other side? Cos mine was like that...
Dint worry too much could b block duct...
Do make an appointment early so that you won't keep worrying bout it.
She's quite good n friendly. Explained alot of things to me n made me feel at else. I even asked her stuff like will my nipples look like this forever cos they r so ugly now, she just smiled and say "they will look alittle better BUT you know, they will still b different previously. Cos they r now used n old. "
Wah soo many postings.. I had been busy lately-to b my buddy's wedding jiemei. Goose waking up at 4am is no joke. Had to pump first before I leave.. Then 4 hours later again pump at e hotel toilet. Came hm n still have to take over e duty of taking care my son.. Was soooo exhausted i slpt with my son in my arms after he finished his milk.
Over the wkend my son finally got his botak "hairstyle" we r doing tai mao bi (scholar brush) for him so e haircut was free. The person came to our house n it was so fun cos she did a Mohawk style first n let us took pics of him before she shaved off everything! But of cos e brush did not come cheap.. Costs us about $300+
Today went to PS mothercare to buy bottle teats for baby. I m usin tommee tippee bottle n has been using the slow flow for 0mth... But until lately we realised baby has been getting hungry fast yet by the time we warm up the milk baby only drinks half n fall aslp.. So I bought the vari flow tests for 0mth +. N surprisingly it works wonder! This vari flow thing work in such a way when baby sucks hard the flow will b strong n when baby begins to feel tired n the suction is weaker the flow will also b smaller.. My son finished drinking in one go n was still sucking after we pull out e empty bottle!!!
But the sad part is recently I realised my boy is hving nipple confusion.. My nipple is alrdy inside his mouth but he was still searching n wailing so loudly at e same time sigh.. I really dont know if I shld just do exclusive bottle feeding or not. But I really enjoy having him in my arms n letting him suckle... sigh... what shld I do? Continue to latch n still let him wail? (he will stop after 10mins of struggling then start to suck cos he'll b tired by then) but I doubt he's full from the feed cos when I pump the amt still e same mayb just 10ml difference.
Anw I read some previous postings bout the storage of milk.
Those who freeze e milk, the antibodies will b gone BUT it is still better than formula. Milk can keep up to 3mths. This is in case your supply cannot meet the demand of baby in future cos the baby appetite will sure increase one.
's for the ebm warming up n throwing it away.. I have checked with Parentcraft. They say.. Once you take out from the fridge n warm it you can only use it till 2hrs from that time. So if your baby drinks alittle n so have alot n if the baby wakes up with e 2hrs, you can still use the milk, just change e water to warm up e milk. Do not keep the milk after 2hrs.

Lingz - Thank you... I'll go check sometime this week
Meltie - My baby was the same as yours today.. She wanted to keep latching, she would fall asleep for barely 10 - 15 minutes and then wake up crying again. Made my nipples super sore today and she finally slept at 8:30.. And I have been keeping my baby in between hubby and me in the nights, only cos its easier for me.. Everytime I notice her waking up and stretching I stuff my boob into her mouth and she sucks for a while, sometimes a long time and then falls asleep. Really works for me, I have been able to sleep alot better now and I think she's alot more comfortable with us. She sleeps in her bed only during the day and with us in the nights..
Reiann - I did one set in a photo studio in Parkway Parade and since that was not as per the requirements I did it again in a studio near VFS India office.
I've been changing bedsheets soo many times too, once it was cause I was burping my baby on the bed and she vomitted soo much on me and another time cos she pooed soo much it came out of her diaper and on my bedsheet.. The story of all our lives now lol ...
i just tio the poo while changing diaper thingy... i saw poo coming out i quickly take the folded soiled diaper to block... flow out a bit before "shooting" out... so lucky just in time and all the poo on the soiled diaper...
meltie, i started bfeeding lying down in bed after my confinement cos back at home has double bed and in the day hubby out for work, so i have the whole bed and i will feed her lying down and then nap together sometimes. my only worries is if i sleep too deep and suffocate her... but so far so good...
lingz haha yea sometimes when lying down she just can't latch on properly and will be very frustrated and become super fussy... then have to sit up to latch again... but you smart, i find it difficult to go from sitting to lying down... how to put baby down lying side by side from sitting in my arms without breaking the latch??
yup meltie and kary... baby pooped on my bed and puked on my bed too... plus when latching lying down always leaking down the side, now i rem to always put a hanky below her face...
Sigh! i latched baby at 11pm and she slept soundly .. i pumped out around 12mn.. and told CL that when baby wakes around 2am, i wanna latch her.. coz i only left 95 ml in fridge, better for me to latch before i go to sleep, 5am i plan to let her do the feeding... but guess what, i already rush out 1st thing hear baby cry.. but my CL already started warming up the milk ... i was so frustrated!!!! now i gotta wake up at 5am super engorged to feed .. or 3am to pump and 5am to feed.. dont't need to sleep ! grrr!
My hubby n i have more or less decided that we'll tell her that we'll terminate her tml.. she super bo chap today.. just now told her no more longan red date in flaskc she went to fill and i went to kitchen after that and saw drops of longan red dates tracing frm kitchen to table.. and also, the slow cooker was filled with cold water to re-boil again.. whee got taste ...
Sigh, she has been lying there on her bed whole day.. talk to her, she just look up.. she did not clwar thw diaper bin and kitchen dustbin as we told her frm 1st day.. then my hubby went to tell her.. she just laid there n acknowledged and went back to rest.. end up my hubby went to clear n throw.. also, she finally made the ginseng black chicken soup for me, but dont know y so diluted and no taste one.. i drank at 9pm.. till now the double boil pot is still sitting unwashed on the table.. in addition, all the pots in the kitchen is still holding the remaining soup and little leftovers.. she can't be bothered to clean up and throw loh.. sigh so dirty ..kitchen floor also super gross... and she can still lie there and rest whole evening.....
Sorry for the ranting.. i hope i have made a right decision, really attitude matters alot..
Hi meltie, I'm sure you have made a correct decision of terminating her as she is not making your confinement easier, but tougher. Since you have already told her explicitly what need to be done, she still can't be bothered and continue her own way, before she decide to stop working, your should just terminate her to let her know the seriousness. Hope things will be smooth for you after she leave. Definitely will be tough, but hand on to it!
Hi Kary Mummy!
Good to hear that you are going for a Holiday... A well-deserved trip!
Which airline are you flying on? Business class is awesome......
They'll put you infront and fix up a nice nice bassinet for you
Yes, most airlines are baby friendly now and the crew will try their utmost best to help you...
I know for sure, Cuz i was in the Airline
Now Had to quit due to pregnancy... Heehee
Hi Meltie, your CL really sounds horrible! Why she so lazy? Wen she first came you mentioned that she has quick hands and now she becomes like that.. Tsk tsk.. I'm sure it's e right decision to ask her to leave.. Jia you!
hey lizzy, thanks for your offer on the DOM, hmm how does it taste like? was thinking of asking hubby to buy.. i seldom drink alcohol one.. i also afraid i dont like the taste....
Sigh my hubby still checking w his aunt if she can help out abit if we ask the CL to leave.. still have not broke the news to her..
i really cannot tahan .. just now 2plus am baby drank bottle prep by her already told her from now on i wanna latch, 3.30am baby hungry again so i quickly went over n latched her.. 6.10am baby cried, i went over, CL already warmed what she claimed 60ml, i was very angry why she did not wake me up , i checked the bottle n it was 75ml.. she just anyhow give baby... i'm so angry.. told her not to touch my milk (60ml left in fridge), and i need to save for later during massage if baby needs, can bottlefeed her..
Explained to CL why i need to latch her, coz wanna stimulate more milk and already not enough ebm in fridge, need to save up. She claims that i only told her 5plus feed i'll latch, so 6plus she dowan to wake me up since i dear daughter not instruct.. and then i told her that i need to latch or else i'll still wake up to pump anyway, so i need to pump since bottle is fed right... guess what she said.. she said, 'you never instruct me , you wanna wake up your side is your problem, i wun wake you up if you did not instruct me' But then if there's no milk, she needs to wake me up to latch right?!! Her reply is 'k , i'll call you everytime loh..' with a black face... grr ..
Anyway, feel that my ex CL got more heart for baby, more patience.. at least she sits and wait for baby to drink down the milk, slowly pat her to burp and wait for her to sleep in her arms.. it takes quite long... but my this CL like wants to go back to her beauty sleep, she feed finish, quickly burp and puts baby to sleep (can be as fast as 15mins) . I've noticed my baby vomitting more n more.. even suspect got reflux coz she woke up screaming n crying after a feed... I seriously wonder if she did burp my baby properly and let milk go down.. to her its just to get baby fed n back on bed.. totally dont care if baby regurgitate or vomit.. maybe thats why my baby so fast hungry again.. Like just now the 6.10am feed, baby vomitted after bottle, 3 mouthfuls in front of me.. and 10mins later cried, asked CL what happened.. she was changing baby's clothes n said baby vomitted alot...and then she say baby hungry, threw to me to latch... i just pumped finish at that time loh! sigh i still latched baby to sleep... CL back in room sleeping...
I just went to room as baby cried again.. CL in kitchen did not bother to come soothe baby.. i went to soothe, carry and coax her to sleep... n CL came back to room and ask.. 'baby sleep ar? ' .. i was wondering its her job .... then she went to bathe.. dont know how many times a day! i really dont like her attitude!!
Hope my hubby's aunt can help out w the meals abit in these few days while i survive the last few days oblf confinement.. i think i feel so tired coz i did not rest much.. never slept thru the night at all.... sigh, and if coz all the worries that cloud my mind.... :/ trying to be positive..
Meltiei think it taste like whisky or cognac im not sure but judging by the smell those 2 alcohol are similar.. Your hubby can get in my place i live bear queenstown mrt so you wont waste money if you dont like it..
And as per CL's job im not sure what the specific help they can give i think more of the baby and mom concern ya? So anything to do with you and the baby is her job so why the black face lol maybe give her bad reviews so her future client wont suffer like you do.. Just a thought
Haha i never tasted whisky or cognac before.. i supposed its quite strong? I stay at buona vista.. hmm you sure you dont wanna take? I need to check w my hubby his schedule..
