Wah the thread is gg so fast, I have been MIA as been trying to settle myself and get my life back . Been so frustrated and pek cek that my boy has no routine yet and keep waking up at night ! When he us already about 9 weeks old He sleep about 4 hours in total in the day, put him to bed around 7, df him at 11 he will still wakes up between 2-3am for a feed. Which I can accept it, but always 1.5 hr later from his night feed he will wake up again, I pop paci n put him sleep with us, he on off sleep and fuss for another Hr and then wake up. Start his day around 5am almost Everyday! Thought baby need 12 Hr of restorative sleep at night so he shld wake up around 7am plus minus a bit. And no idea why every 1.5 Hr after feeding he has to wake up. Doesn't looks like wind prob as all I need is give him paci and sooth him a bit. It's really frustrating I had no good sleep at all. Tired everyday wonder how if I go back to work. As day time when he nap I can't nap and rest as never have the habit of napping in the day
Been trying to feed him as much as I cld in the day recently mange to extend his feeding from 3 Hr to 3.5 or 4 Hr. But can't seems to increase his intake more. He used to drink 120 /3hr now only around 140 and sometimes can't finish as tend to fall asleep or wanna pass gas during feeding and dont't wanna drink further. So I suspect bcos if this he is not taking enuf in the day as he weighs 6.5kg so based on the general calculation of wt (kg) *150ml he needs about 900 ml of milk intake. But I can never force him to complete all 900ml by 11pm. If assuming his night feed is due to not drinking enuf in the day.
Meltie, you are really wonder mum to your baby. I really salute you and admire you! I definitely have no such patience and tolerance. with my boy behaving like this I'm already gg mad sometimes cry so much as no matter how I research read up just can't seems to find the prob to resolve it. I'm really a no patience person plus never been a night owl so waking up at night is really not for me.
Mummies I'm sorry but have to give this gathering a miss as I really not in the mood to go, need to get my sanity back . Husband keep woruying I will have post natal depression. Which I'm worried too sigh taking care of babies is the toughest thing in my life.
Sigh ! Still struggling with my boy but come to think about it he will be in infant care after I go work whatever routine he has will also be haywire by then can only hope things get better. I'm happy that mummies here have routine for your baby already that's great ! And ignore those irritating husband and mother in law prob.. focus on your baby is most impt.
