Ferlynn, my baby girl now only drink 150ml (5 scoops) every 2.5-3hr. She is turning 5 months on the 9th.
Hi jess, for the whole day my 4mth 1week girl drinks 840ml or less(sometimes she cant finish). What about yours?
She drk 150ml every 3 hr (6-8 times per day) for month of jan.. I want to increase her milk intake to 160ml next week and so forth until she reaches 180ml by 3rd week of feb .. I have not start her on cereal yet, intending to do so should. She can sit steadily by herself. Perhaps by end feb ... Now we feed her drk abit of water using spoon, she still drk like drinking from btl -_-
Ohhhhh so your girl drinks more than my girl. But its ok since she is bigger. My hubby friend scare me to death by saying "HUH YOUR DAUGHTER DRINKS SO MUCH MEH?! 210ML IS ALOTTTT YOU KNOW" sobs
Wow your girl can sit steadily already? So fast! My girl can only hold her bottle. Sometimes drop also when is the right time to introduce cereals? Not 6mths?
I see my friends start giving their babies drink milk + 1 scoop of cereal. I am not tying it till she is 6 month ... My girl drks 150ml each time, not 210ml each time. I suppose its ok as long as baby is growing well
Once or twice she drank up to 200ml, my friend told me maybe its due to sudden growth..
Thanks for the info jess!

Wow seems like my little girl isn't the only one having restless nights! She's been tossing and turning and waking up in the middle of the night too! She's even rejecting her pacifier for the past week. When she wakes up at night, she wants milk. If I try and give her the pacifier she will spit it out and attempt to scream. :/ it's like the first month all over again.
My girl was slowing down on her milk in the 4th month, and it was a bit worrying cause it dropped significantly to only 160ml every three or four hours. Scared me. :/ but it lasted for about two weeks, now it's back up to 310ml again. So I guess it's just a phase they go through?
I know some mummies have already started on solid ? Do you give rice cereal ? My pediatrician advised my boy to start cereal when he is 5mths old. Cos recently he been drinking lesser n lesser and cos he's a big boy 7.7kg at 16 weeks. pediatrician said he shld start cereal soon. But I'm just thinking how much to give ? One single teaspoon mixed with breast milk ? And when to give ? Before bedtime ? And how many times a day ? Just once will do right ?
I started giving my girl rice cereal when she was 4 months 2 weeks, and she likes it. 1 tea spoon 1 meal per day, mix with formuale milk, feed at 7pm. So far, she poo and pee ok, so I'll continue
Maybe I'll start 2 cereal meal per day when she turns 5 months next week...
Is 1 teaspoon too little? I always read that we should start with 1 tsp... But always seems too little to be a meal by its own... >.<
1 teaspoon of cereal then follow with 100ml formulae milk. Should be filling enough, right?
help me LIKE too thanks
my baby is the oldest in sept grp? but nope, have not't started on cereals... gg to start either next week when she turns 26 weeks or when she's really 6 mths old on 23 feb... so far she's happy suckling. so i'm also totally clueless how much she's taking per day as i exclusively latch on demand.
she's been very sticky to me... when i go out without her after a while she will keep crying. mother in law says from her cry can tell not due to hunger or discomfort... just very miserable and sad... when i got home n see her cry like that i super heartpain. sigh... i can't imagine when i go back to work eventually =/ but hope she'll get better as she grows older in a few months...
sigh the nephew that mother in law brought up is here today. his mum left him here and went shopping for stuff. really the most rascal-like fellow ever! tonight is hubby's family reunion dinner so mother in law been very very busy but he whole day pestering mother in law and crying and shouting and demanding mother in law to sleep with him or carry him around from point A to point B etc. mind you, he's freaking 5 years old! mother in law n father in law very pekchek but still everything give in to him, which is why he's such a demanding spoilt brat now. i told my hubby if my girl turn out like that, i open window jump down. grrrr... now he looking for mother in law who went out to buy some groceries... then went back into their room and wailed out loud to father in law that he wants mother in law... and demand father in law to call mother in law and come make her come back now. omg.
*live update* father in law called and he immediately screamed into the phone "i want you to carry me NOW! where are you?! no not later, NOW!!" then now wails like nobody's business because he cannot get what he demands, which is for mother in law to carry him NOW... father in law also dont know what to do. he screaming at father in law to bring him 2 pieces of tissue as he wails away. i only feel like slapping him and telling him to shut up and grow up.
sorry i need to rant. everything he's around i need to rant because he really gets on my nerves too much!!
anyway will update when my baby starts solid... gotta shop for high chair first.
Hi mummies, have not been in forum for past 5.5 months busy w baby n work ! My edd 5 sep but I delivered in end aug. My baby coming 6 months soon in a week time. I have not increased his milk as he is comfy at 150ml every 3 hours n I m careful not to overfeed as this will firce his stomach to expand (thats what ifc teacher told me). Will introduce cereal when he 6 months but I slowly stepping up hus fornula milk to step2. you m a working mum. baby sleeps through but fidget sometimes need pat sleep night feed once. Tiring especially working. I only slept 5 hours if lucky or broken sleep everyday. Thank goodness I m surviving!
Anyone of you intend to send your child for playnest programmes offered by centres such as Julia Gabriel etc? From what I heard n read, such programmes accept from 6 months old onwards.
Do share your thoughts on this. Thanks!!
how have you all been? It's been pretty quiet here lately. My son is turning 6mths next week and my pediatrician has suggested to feed him porridge. (Yesss very early right?) I m soooo clueless as to how to start doing so! In fact I have not't even manage to complete the food that I want him to try out in purée form. Anw so far he looks the cereal n carrots. Hates apple. Guess my apple too sour?!
Lately my boy has been waking up every hour in e night. Yes!! I wonder y. He doesn't want to drink but wants me to hug him to sleep instead... Goosh.. Any of you experiencing this?
I am also feeling very upset that my milk supply is dwindling. Now each session I pump can only add 100ml combined... sigh really very very very very upset. Looks like I have to start formula soon prob exactly next wk when he turns 6mths... Was initially hoping to do it for 1 year... It's so weird it's like suddenly drop... Despite lathing my boy n drinking enough water...maybe lack of sleep does affect e supply? Anyway you mummies have any recipe for porridge? Should I slow cook? How bout the meat n veg should I blend it?
Hi piglim.. I'm also same w you..supply dipping n my boy's only 4mths + now have been using my stocks but everyday using up very fast..cannot catch up on the pumping sessions as I just went back to work n can only pump very limited.. feeling So guilty now..at least you have crossed the six month period..that's good enough..for solids let other mummies advise you..
hi piglim, yes, it's been kinda quiet here lately.. I suppose cos more mummies have started work and the action seems more in facebook now.. Hee..
my supply is also gg down cos im pumping lesser even since gg back to work.. it doesnt help that my company does not really allow me to disappear to pump to keep up with the 4hrly pumping schedule that I would like to.. have been trying to drink more water and pump more on weekends to hopefully boost it a little so that we can at least cross the 6mth mark which is like 3 weeks more to go.. actualli you're pretty amazing already.. you started work much earlier right? and your supply can still make it so long..
as for porridge, what I read is to grind the rice grains to fine, then cook with water or home-made chicken stock/ vegetable stock.. then can do a vegetable or meat puree (chicken or pork) and add it to the porridge to feed baby.. gg to start my girl on solid in 3 weeks time wen she turns 6mths since pediatrician did not suggest for her to start earlier.. so exciting!
Mummies I know why my supply suddenly dip ... My period came today... sigh.... Read that this will cause a dip in e supply but as long as I keep nursing n pumping should b ok, but can't expect the supply to b as before I guess. Yes lingz I started work very very early.. But thankfully then I pump n freeze my milk that's why it cause left me till now if not would have to supplement with formula long time.
Hmm why on Facebook ;((( pls dont stop this forum...
Lingz I sometimes get too busy also pumping once a day only..not enough to feed for 4 feeds Which baby is taking also..now having to touch the reserve.. Think sooner or later will supplement w fm.. how r you managing it at yr side?Originally Posted by Lingz12:760310
Not too good.. Im tapping reserves too.. Now I try to pump before I knock off.. Just a quick pump of 10min and tried to manually express as much as I can for another few min before rushing off to nanny's.. yield with each pump just keep dropping and it's getting demoralising.. I just bought sacred tea to try, just started yesterday.. hopefully it will help.. if not I will just hav to wean in 3 weeks wen my girl turns 6mths old..Originally Posted by justamom:761324
Hi all.. wah its been quiet here!
Updates updates mummies!!
My baby went for her pneumococcal jab yesterday.. down with fever as usual... she now weighs 5.91kg! glad she gained some weight after i go on full bottlefeeding..
Yup i agree pumping at work is certainlu not ez.. have to wake up at 6amto pump or feed baby whichever earlier.. them prepare and pack pump for work.. the only time i find for next pump is near 1pm, then yry to pump again before 5pm, just before gg home. Coz when i go home, baby is passed to me at the door.. will be bz and no time to pump and do anything.. since i started work, baby has been crying in the day, puking more.. think reflux got worse.. she doesn't like the maid and my mother in law... still trying to get her to get used to them... at night super cranky till 12mn dont't wanna sleep.. after i feed her or dreamfeed her at 12plus, she'll sleep till 5/6am.. some days better.. 7pm is a bonus! And my day starts all over again....
These nights, baby seems to be super restless.. cannot sleep and keep biting and making noises.. i think she should be teething.... but i still dont'y see any whites on the gums....
Any mummies weny expo? i'm super lazy and tired, so did not go.. any idea when is the next big fair? I have yet to get a high chair for baby..
Wah meltie, at least your baby can sleep thru e night.. Mine still wakes up at 3,4,5,7,8am every night. Yes thats the no of times i have to wake up everyday. Although my son closes his eyes n drink his milk 5-10mins n falls back to sleep... It's very very tiring for me... Like today I woke up late for work. Urgh... Super tired. My son's turning 6mths tml!! Hehe think by next wk or so then I'll start porridge for him. So exciting.. Oh n he'll b going for his photoshoot next week too! ) Tonight gonna start banana purée for him. Hope he likes it.
as for the fair, the big one is normally on e 1st wk of June.. But you can actually purchase the high chairs online (free delivery also)
Think your baby might b having sore gums.. Doesn't really have to see the whites.
anyone started baby with sippy cups? Wonder of 6mths is too early?
