    HELP!!! Bleeding 14 days after D&C

    Oh, clarification here: after medication, the heavy bleeding happened within the day to clear the pregnancy. The bleeding afterwards is like regular menses flow, not heavy, just that it took about 2 weeks to clear completely. I prepared myself mentally before choosing this option and it felt...

    Rough confinement period

    Oh, I stay in KL now, so catered vegetarian confinement food. It includes vegetables / beans with ginger, various types of mock meat (from beans instead of gluten) cooked with various sauces like sweet/sour, vinegar, honey, daily soup. Generally, similar to regular Chinese confinement meals...

    Rough confinement period

    Ha, I learnt this from a book - What Baby Needs, from Dr. Sears. We've read this book before baby arrived, to prepare the older boy about baby's crying, breastfeeding, etc. It helped a lot.

    Washable Nursing Pads

    For heavy leaks, hemp / bamboo fabric absorb a lot. Whether disposable or cloth, need to change regularly after wetting, else bacteria will grow. Washable ones are easy to maintain, I usually handwash them after shower, then dry under sun to naturally bleach them. Highly absorbent disposable...

    what to drink as replacement for water during confinement?

    I stopped red dates tea after 1 week because baby was getting yellowish and home-visit nurse said jaundice may be prolonged if mummy keeps drinking red dates tea. In replacement, I drank Earth Mama Angel Baby milkmaid tea. Soak 1 tea bag in hot water, can refill up to 3 cups. Good to boost milk...

    Rough confinement period

    You must stay positive, strong and cheerful. Life is beautiful, think about your blessings. Every child is a blessing and you've got two. :) My boy is 3+ years old and baby is 7 months old. He's generally a sweet boy but until now, there are still days when he wants to make noise when I'm...

    HELP!!! Bleeding 14 days after D&C

    For my miscarriage, I chose to take medicine to induce it. Bled for 2 weeks or even longer. I rem obgyn said bleeding is to help clear the clots, so if still bleeding, means may still have clot inside. She did ultrasound during followup, to check that every clot is cleared. I rem going back for...

    sleep trainer needed

    My 3-year old boy has been a high needs child since young. He was very fussy regarding sleep. We used Elizabeth Pantley's ideas and the Shichida Method to help him sleep better. I notice you mention "screaming her head off". It may be a negative experience from pregnancy, delivery or anytime...

    Washable Nursing Pads

    I'm SAHM, using washable breast pads when I go out, even on dressy days. They're hidden under bra cups (mine are molded cups), so aren't obvious at all.

    Cloth diapers

    I'm in KL and 've been using Pureen, cloth diaper friendly and price is good. In Singapore, I heard that it's available at OG. Review: Review: Pureen H-A-D Liquid Detergent | Mummy's Reviews I've also tried Nellie's and Tiny Bubbles, both suitable too.

    nappies, bumwear or moomoo kow?

    I've seen but not tried Bumwear, so can't comment on the diaper. But the "cannot be sun out" part is strange. Drying under the sun is the most effective way to naturally "bleach" away yellowish poo stains. I've dried many brands and types of cloth diapers under the sun and they turn out fine...

    nappies, bumwear or moomoo kow?

    One size diapers tend to fit better when baby's thighs are chubbier, perhaps about 5kg, 2-3 months old. For first few weeks, baby usually pees and poos very frequently, so using traditional cloth diapers / prefolds + washable stay dry liner + a good XS/S diaper cover is economical and fits...

    underweight toddler due to bfeeding?

    I'm a SAHM, so it's naturally more convenient to breastfeed. I always salute working mums who persevere to express milk for their babies. Kudos!!! My #2 is now 6+ months old. He's more petite compared to his super-chubby brother, yet his milestones are much earlier. Both fully breastfed, guess...
