This thread is moving sooo fast I hardly have time to reply after spending hours reading them... Hmmm hopefully when you gals start work, this forum will still b so active.
Mummies who r hving a tough time.. Stay strong! Just rem you r not alone. Most of us here r first time mummies n what we have hoped n thought life will still b e same before we deliver our cute bbs... They never did. Before I delivered I also told myself first thing I wanna do is to drink coffee, dye n cut my hair, exercise.. Etc... But guess what even after now I hvnt not drank a cup of coffee.. Guess when one becomes a mother, everything is bout baby. I didn't wanna risk passing e caffeine to my son cos he's drinking my milk (although I know a cup wont harm) topic with hubby also mostly bout baby (even though I have started work a month ago) n worst still I hardly have time for romance. Cos hubby works late, come hm around 11pm. By that time baby n I aslp, n I wake up early for work n hubby still aslp. So wkends r extremely precious n important to me.
I m also a headstrong n independent person.. Though now my son is taken care by my mother in law (n I m never happy bout it) but instead of thinking n making myself miserable I try to come here n rant bout her stupidity n read stories bout how you gals r coping as well.
My supply is definitely going down. Each pump still can pump out 100ml one side but that's e max last time still can pump 150ml. Plus not that I m working I pumped twice a day only. Morning n night latch.. Luckily still got frozen pack to last me another 2-3mths at most.. But seems like my baby doesn't like frozen milk taste.. How smart.
Took off with hubby n we'll b heading to riders cafe for breakfast!!! I m dying to eat egg Benedict!!! It's been a year!!!! Those sacrifices we make when we r pregnant... Guys r just so fortunate! Anw hope my son will behave n let me have a good breakfast
Hmmm so far been taking my son out once every wkend, e only thing I wish is we have a car.. Cos bringing a baby out means carrying loads of stuff... sigh... If only they give rebates or subsidy for families to buy a car.. COE now is crazy!!!!!!!!!
Ok baby is awake . he's soooo adorable now that he keep smiling n making baby sounds n seeking lotsa attention! It's really much easier to manage him now that he's 15-16 wks.

Lizzy and Nessa such cute pictures of your babies sleeping on their tummies... After reading all your posts about placing your babies on their tummies I started doing it too since last week... She sleeps quite well and doesnt make all her grunting sounds while on her tummy.
Meltie - I can imagine how tired you are with Charlotte troubling you so much. You should definitely consider the pacifier, give it to her when shes not crying to start off and then as she gets accustomed to it you can use it as your tool!
I was so against the pacifier but I tried it on my baby once before flying cos I wanted to use it for her ears to help with the air pressure. And after that I decided to use it as an emergency tool for other people to use when I'm not around her.. But now I use it on her too, especially when I know she's just biting my nipples and not really drinking, use it to put her to sleep, it also helps when I'm out shopping with her and she starts screaming and crying... Ive had really bad days like you too, and that made me resort to giving her formula milk when she gets this way cos I used to think I dont have enough milk.. So now whenever she gets too cranky I just give her FM, and I'm alright giving her FM once in two days or every other day. It works for me cos I cant handle her cries sometimes. Though the good thing about Mikaela is she is ok with anything in her mouth, she eats her mittens, her hands, my tshirt when I carry her in a cradle position and when I carry her up she does her acrobats to reach my arms and chews on them too..
Justamom - My baby is about 5.7 kgs when I checked on Sat and I started using the ergo carrier since Friday with the infant insert. I feel its just alot more comfortable for her with the cushion for her bum and the cushioned ribbing for the neck. Its really hot because of the insert, but I definitely feel its alot more comfortable with it. And her legs dont come out of the carrier like Lizzy has shown, I put her legs inside the carrier cos she's resting it outside the infant insert. She places her head on my boob like its a cushion for her to sleep, and the longest she has slept has been 3.5 hours in it. I love the carrier, cos its soo much more easier to go out with it rather than taking the stroller.
My baby is gonna be 3 months in 9 days, looking back and thinking about how these days have past.. I was almost on the verge of giving up breastfeeding cos it was soo tiring. Now she feeds every 3 - 4 hours and even if shes awake does not cry too much on most days. Though someone has to permanently stay around her and continuously keep talking to her or sing to her. She now allows us to eat our meals peacefully while she just sits in her bouncer. Though the nights are still bad, I envy all of you who's babies sleep through. My has to wake up every four hours for milk, i've tried stuffing the pacifier in her mouth but she screams and cries wanting my boob at that time. The good thing is her sucking does not last as long as it used to before and she goes back to sleep quite fast. Oh and my baby too has the problem of always turning her head to her right while sleeping and when awake too.. The pediatrician noticed it too on Saturday and he was like we have to turn her on her left so that her head is evenly shaped and to place pillows on her side so that she stays in that position.
Kary: meaning you put her legs also bent like sitting on a chair kind on the pillow? Does she stays in that position for you? I'm afraid my boy might not stay still..he is very active n moves quite a bit..Originally Posted by Kary2500:734353
Camcam - Stay strong and yes come out here and vent to us... Cos alot of us are going through the same thing with our mother in law's... They dont realise that they were once new mommies too. I get extremely irritate alot of times with my mother in law too and I keep sending my hubby really long msgs about the things that bother me. But alot of times when I cant take it I just tell her off, and Ive told her that Mikaela is my baby and she has had her chance to take care of her sons, now its my time to take care of mine. And not like what i'm doing is wrong, its just that its not the way she did it. I'm just glad I can still breastfeed cos everytime my baby cries I take her away and go in to feed her and keep her with me. Another thing I really dont like is everytime my baby cries my mother in law thinks I cant calm her down and she snatches her from me only to give her back to me after 2 mins saying shes hungry maybe you dont have milk feed her fm. And I take her and calm her down without feeding her and then grin that evil laugh to myself saying yayy my baby just wants her momma..
Camcam I salute to you for your braveness! Ignore your monster in law..you know that you r a good mum n you r the closest to your baby.. not her! Can you ignore her n stay in yr rm most of the time? At least you dont't need to face her..nx time she wanna scold you again just walk in carrying baby say you need to feed her..n lock the door n ignore her..I know it's hard to live under one roof..but ignorance is bliss! dont't need to talk to this kinda person who doesn't treat you respect! Brace up..come here to rant..
Justamom.. Mayb you can borrow fm any1here....
Meltie i scrub my wash cloth n hankies..
I stay with my ils.. But im grateful.. Though certain act i buay song but generally they r ok
Cam your mother in law very.. %€}¤$*$:]:|¤ no.comments man! 2nd worse to my friend's her mother in law uses their fav bowl to wash undies!!!! Can you imagine??!!! If can move out!
Really this thread super fast within hours!!!!
Camcam, your mother in law is amazingly scary, some more involve the whole tribal group (aunties). Definitely not easy, when your mother in law is openly picking on you. The only solution is to move out, if not, really no choice but to tahan and continue to vent your frustration here.. After hearing your, think my problem is not that big. But, staying with in law is really not easy. Sianz to the max.. One good thing is all our babies are attached to mummies!!!
Meltie, really hope Charlotte can b better and give you some time off to rest. Is she still taking any medicine to cure her colic? Have you try praying? Anyway, stay strong and you r doing great to handle her yourself.. Jiayou!!!
Camcam tell your monster in law you didnt carry baby for 9 months and gave birth to her risking your life just to make baby frighten, cough and all sorts of negative shits she was telling you about! Cant she think straight lol she's a mother she should kno that babies are human lol and will experience sickness and all normal human being experienced.. My god! If she doesnt want you to her daughter in law lol who cares as if you need a mother in law like her -_- she can tell you anything but not about your baby's. be fair.. She's a mother, how can she let her daughter in law suffer and grow up without mother on her side?! What a monstrous being, lucky im not in your shoes or snapping aint enough for all of em, and they wont even see my child for the rest of their life! You're the mom you have all the rights!
Meltie: perhaps you can try to pray at Kwan I'm temple at bugis there and ask for kwan im fu.. Pray to Kwan I'm and ask for protection for Charlotte.. I did this when Leigh Anne was crying and puking nonstop previously, well at least praying gave me sense of comfort and at least I tried every means for the sake of my baby..
wahh camcam.. when you said that the only thing terrible is her face i was litterally giggling!! sorry if i offend you but really that was funny and i hope i can see her reaction to that..
but on top of that, at least you got the guts to scold your mother in law.. i dont think i can ever do that. but who knows .. maybe in the future i will do so too..
meltie.. you wanna try tuina? it can help with sleeping and colic problem. some mummies in smh forum really did find it very helpful. i also brought cayleigh there before due to her vomitting, but it doesnt help much on her. but it does help on her bowel movement. so it really depends on each baby i think. but perhaps you wanna try, it might works on your gal.
My mother in law is still alright (maybe i dont stay with her), but she does have her set of beliefs and assumptions.. she also got her own way of doing things and doesn't listen when she feels she is right.. always ask me to overwrap my baby .. making her super sweaty n hot... even driving instructions i gave her she still wanna go her way and end up say i always give false info... gosh.. i drive everyday n i know the roads very well (esp around south area).. oh well other than that she is a nice mum n mother in law bah.. helps to cook n buy meals... dont't want my hubby to tire out... but she still very sour about why my hubby n i decided not to shift in to stay w her (we almost did! long story..) Now as we consider our next house, got ask if she wanna shift in n stay w us so that we can take care of her.. but she says 'you all wouldn't have shift out in the first place'.. oh well we already discussed w her earlier that we got king size bed n the room too small to out cot n bed n all our stuff...
but generally i just tahan bah... can't imagine if i shifted in to stay for good.. maybe i'll be complaining here more..
Hmm last night baby went down to sleep after 8.30pm feed .. fed till 10pm and she slept till 1am then stir. Asked my hubby to try dreamfeed w bottle.. made her scream big time.. but still drank down the 100ml in panic mode.. but she continued wailing non stop! Hubby had to pass to me to latch n soothe... sigh latched till 2plus.. but she slept till 5.50am... just woke up at 8am.. seems not hungry but constipated.. hmm dont know why..now so cranky..
