Brought baby out with my mum to nearby compass point todae in her stroller! She was very well-behaved until feeding time.. Quickly pushed her to nursing room.. My first time in a nursing room! And baby likes e diaper changing station! She was smiling wen we put her on it.. There's no hot water dispenser though, luckily I brought my own to warm her EBM.. Now getting excited to bring her out shopping! Still not confident gg alone now, maybe another month or so?

Yeah Felicity! Next time we can go together! Or maybe we will bump into each other in the nursing room sometime! *wink*
Today is end of my confinement, my gal finally turn one month. Very shack today, she only slept for 4hr naps from 11.30am to 14.30 and she was awake till now.. Tried to put her in the sarong, rock her, pat her also failed. I just fed her now and tried to burp her for 10min but she didn't burp, tried the coke turn also didnt work.. Sigh..
Is it normal for baby to be awake for such a long period? And is it ok for baby not to burp?
i'm also very tired.. wondering why my little one is sp fussy n cranky.. she has been up whole day and never sleep much too... have been trying to put her down to sleep, but all failed.. now hubby still rocking her in the living rm.. maybe its her colic acting up again.. I think the trend i'm seeing is that as baby gets older, she spends more time awake.. but mine seems to get over tired.. and cannot sleep.. fuss and fuss.. gonna latch her now...
Wanna ask any one of you took very long to feed from btl?? I btl feed most of the time...
My girl took very long to finish... Very pissed off.coz not good...
More frustrating thing is husband will pour away without trying further... Feel heartache esp when its breast milk!!!! Angry! !!
My gal took 100ml of ebm in less than 15min. Read from forum bottle feed baby should take around 15min, too long means it is too much for the baby, maybe can reduce few ml first.. Or maybe the teat is too small for baby?
My baby has been on total bfeeding so far... Now coming to 6wks... Tried introducing bottle, but he rejected a few times... How??
my baby some days can sleep up to 6 hours during e day n sometimes also refuse to sleep no matter Hw you coax him .. especially he is so tired n he fussed a lot before bed time at night ..he is only 5 weeks old n I m still struggling to master his so called pattern .. realized he always startle by his own movements during sleep no choice hav to swaddled him again n I knw he hate it .. cos during week 2 I already remove swaddled now swaddled back again .. sighz !! sorry baby ..
Mamadinosaur get someone else to feed her? That's what some of my friends had to do, bobian. I rem several years ago my friend exclusive bf till third month wanna intro bottle baby die also dont want keep struggling n crying n she cry w baby very frustrated n worried cos baby starting infant care she worry baby dont want bottle will starve but when I went baby takes bottle from me, n her mum n her mother in law... I guess baby just used to mummy must bf... Anyone else is bobian... But better mummy stay away.. My baby can take forever to finish bottle when I'm not home n mother in law helped me.. mother in law says she bully her lol keep struggling but at least got drink.. Once I came home n she immediately stopped wanting the bottle after 20ml only n have not't taken milk for quite some time... Immediately cries n wants me to latch.. Once I latch she suckles hungrily...
Purpur *hugs* my baby 10 weeks also no pattern in the day.. Only permanent feature is she slps well at night most of the time. This time seems exception :/ but at least hubby not home to sleep so no one to grumble at baby lol
Lingz yea!! I'm glad at least compass point nursing room is clean n comfy to use.. Although lack hot water dispenser etc.
Meltie *hugs* hope your baby's fussiness won't stay for long.!
Prob is mother in law can finish in about 20mins... I need dbl e time!!! Best achievement is 30mins... baby bully me... Lol
Esp after i pump she will wanna latch.... Got smell lol
So far only went west coast plaza n illuma nursing room... All cmi! Jp i brought baby there a couple of times basically slept through
Rodorsany, my girl usually also takes about 15min to finish her bottle of 110ml.. Once in a blue moon, she can finish under 10min.. Sme other times she can take up to 30min cos she fell asleep! I will try to turn the bottle a bit if she still suckle weakly, I will just try burping her to wake her up then continue feeding her again.. It works most of the time.. you can try..
And ya! The few times that I let hubby feed, he always can't finish and claim baby full oredi and want to throw away my ebm! I say cannot be .. she onli drank like half her usual amt.. but is cos he feed no skill.. he keep pulling the bottle out to wipe baby mouth and chin wen he see milk dribbling out.. So end up feed very long and baby very sleepy .. Frustrated .. So end up I took over and managed to let baby finish all though by then ebm not warm .. Anybody who attempts to waste my ebm is gg to get it from me ! They are not the ones producing, they dont know how precious every little drop is.. just cos they see got a few bottles in fridge they jiu tink got a lot can waste.. Hmmph!
Hi linln84, wen I went for first month pediatrician appt, pediatrician did say from 1st month onwards, baby will tend to sleep lesser during the day and seek more attention.. Mine dont really exhibit that behaviour though.. She still nap after most feeds.. But I suppose every baby is diff.. My mum says my younger bro also dont nap wen he's a baby.. He's also all tall and healthy now.. Hee.. Maybe it's better for baby to nap less during the day and sleep better and longer at night?
As for burping, the first few times I tried the coke can method, it works.. After a while, it's like striking lottery.. Now I just sit baby up straight facing me and pat her on her back quickly and lightly for 5min (my arms really ache ).. If she still dont burp, then I will change her position and sit her sideways on my lap, hold her chin and pat her on the back again.. Sometimes just changing position after a long burp attempt will get her to burp.. If still can't, then I will try the coke can method again.. Still can't? Then I just give up.. Cos by then oredi try burping for 15min .. Haha.. I will just carry her upright for at least 15min , hopefully can keep e milk down.. Bo bian.. I tink it's better that baby burp after feed.. But if baby doesn't, there is nothing I can do.. Oh, sme ppl say burping over the shoulder helps though it doesn't work for me.. Hee..
Rodorsany not bad heehee, my baby doesn't even allow me to bottle feed her! Rejects all the time after week 5. As long as I'm around she only latches!!
Lingz yes!! Precious milk, who dare waste my breast milk will definitely get it from me!! you know, that time I came home n baby only took 20ml n wanna latch, I drank the rest of it,.. Added the 60ml into my hot tea :X
Now I have 20+ bags of milk but baby exclusive bf unless I go out... Sigh I worry they turn bad :/
Felicity : how long does your bf baby sleep through night?
I find it wonderful that breast milk has components in it that helps a baby sleep through night longer. Apparently there are ssleep induction hormones or compounds in breast milk produced by mothers at night and babies naturally sleep slightly longer!
Roo: why is the nursing room at iluma no good?? It's now called bugis plus yes?
reiann she usually sleeps around 9-10 n wakes up at 5-6 for her feed... Around 7-8 hours. But last night a bit cranky, slept near midnight n woke up at 4+... Still not bad consider it's over 4 hours n not like every 2-3 hours...
Ya lizzy,not sure about food intake.. Guess gotta be more careful... Yesterday was the 1st I went out with baby alone.. Abit challenging but guess manageable...
So mummies who went out alone, I just wanna ask, you put baby in sling and carry baby bag too right? Did you also bring stroller out too? Is your baby bag heavy? Cz I so kiasu like pack a lot of things inside....
Reiann its new.. But very cramp if bring pram gotta leave it outside n stuffy.. So if nurse very long i think i will suffocate... -_-!!
But my girl is like my #1. .will drink fast then half full will stop... Like got something in tummy will do.. Cant b drinking 40ml at wk7 mah... So amt is correct n its 4hrly... Sometimes she slept till its 5hr... Not that.she slept 5hrs.. Like she play 2~3hrs Then sleep
So envy you all whose babies can sleep more than 4hr. My gal can only sleep for 4hr or 4.5hr max during night. No matter how much milk I fed her, she will still wake up after 4hr for milk.. Zzz.. And during day, she only takes short nap.
Btw how do you entertain baby during day? My gal can only sit in bouncer for max 30min or slightly more if we chat with her. After that she will cry. Very tiring if she doesn't sleep at day.
My left wrist is very painful now, think it is injured for carrying her too much and also maybe due to touching cold tap water during confinement...
Actually, the more I take care of my girl, the more I've phobia. She always take very long to fall asleep and she is always struggling to sleep in my arms, then, she will not allow us to put her down. She will wake up immediately and by the time successfully put her down, it'll be her next feeding time. Just like last few nights, both my hubby and I take turns to make her sleep and the challenge on putting her down on the bed. Usually takes more than 2 hours to do so. She also refused yao lan and bouncer. She will be entertained at most 10 mins before she start crying. Her drinking volume varies. Sometime, she can drink 70ml, sometime 90ml, sometime up to 110ml. Her interval can b 2 hours to 3 hours. Seldom stretch longer than that. She is now into week 5.
My girl dont't like car ride. Will cry all the way from my hubby's house to my house, until no voice. So heart pain. thought baby will fall asleep in car ride. Now have to consider the distance we travel coz if long distance, scare she will cry until no voice again.
keatbear, my baby bag is very heavy too .. I pack diapers 6 pcs .. small hot water container , cold water , handkerchief, fm ( everytime 3 feeds as I use to bring extra ) pacifier, nappy cream , ruyi oil, wet tissue.. cloth napkin too .. I m another kaisu one .. haha
Good to know what to pack in the diaper bag, last time when I went to harbour front for her hair cut, I only brought: napkin, 2pcs diaper, 1pc cloth, wet tissue, pacifier and 1fm in the warmer.. The big is so empty, dont know what to put..
So far all my trip with baby is only for short while, maybe I should start to bring her out for longer time..
Madamdinosaur, maybe can try different teats? With my son previously, he rejected bottle too and I had to battle with him for two months befor he finally accepted. And he finally accepted after we switched from nuk to pigeon peristaltic teats.
lingz12, what is the coke can method of burping? For me, I find that instead of patting, rubbing the back with the palm of my hand works the best.. Especially if I place her against my shoulders.
Hi mummies! I'm currently still doing full latching on and want to start pumping to store in case I'm out. So I can only pump after feeding... Is 20-40ml of milk after feeding considered normal amount?
My boy is 5 weeks going to 6. He still wakes up every 2-3 hours at night for milk and his 'routine' thru the day is feeding every 2-3 hours, nap or play in between...
Yuen6, the coke can burp method was shared by meltie previously.. She said to sit baby on lap, one hand support baby chin with burp cloth, another hand support baby neck and back.. Then rotate baby body like a bu dao weng and pat baby back with cupped hands.. Repeat 3 to 4 times.. The first time I tried it is really effective.. but the effectiveness drops e more times I use it..
