Yup i prefer to take all maternity leave at once.. maxmimise as much time for 1st 4 mths w baby.. considered that i can breastfeed as much! Wow time flies, baby is already 15 weeks ! I've breastfed her more than 3.5mths! amazing feeling.. 2.5 mths more to go! Hope i can last! with all the sore/dry/bleeding/itchy nipples gosh.. and pumping when i get to!
Justamom, my HR say i was entiltled childcare leave in 2012! No proration even as i gave birth in sept and taking maternity.. so she slot in for me after 1st 8 weeks.. w the slotting in of annual leave n childcare leave, the maternity is broken up and the remaining 8 weeks is actually days to be cleated within a year..
Wah your lucas also like my charlotte.. i carried her to eat , she still wailing.. just now just left her to cry as i go bathe.. coz i do anything also no use.. carry her she can wail even harder... do 3mth olds cry more?
Charlotte has been crying alot these few days.. cry n scream for no apparent reason.. from sleep n suddenly frm bouncer.. strange.. maybe she has learnt to scream n discover her pitch.. cried for 2 hours in the evening.. till no voice.. its not colic.. i rocked n carry her but she continued her shrieking.. sigh.. she seems to know ant her surgery?
I guess for charlotte, nothing much for her to worry .. but its mummy that's stressed n worried.. got all the packing, prep , waking early, managing feed times, pump times, etc.. they also dont cater meals for me in hospital.. gotta tapao.. tml i must try to feed charlotte at around 3am and finish by 4am to fast for surgery.. before 6am feed her some sugar water.. not sure how much sugar to add though.. nurse says can give her 50ml.. thats alot man!
