Hi Escago ,Hello mummies,
I am in my 2nd week confinement. Sweat so much everyday and I feel like a cow now. I am feeding bb on demand and I do express out the breast milk too. Sometimes bb cannot latch on well so it is causing my sore nipple. It can be really painful but gotto bear with it. Sometimes bb need to suck for 1 hr then will be full. Cos gotto always wake her up throughout the feed. Sometimes I wish I can just bottle feed. It is so much faster compared to direct bf as bb didn't suck that fast. But felt a bit irresponsible to have that kind of easy way out thinking anyway I think I may be having a little blues becos sometimes I felt like crying suddenly and the thot that my mum will only stay with me two more weeks make me even more helpless. I dun know if I can cope with bb alone when hubby goes to work.
Another not so good thing is bb doesn't want to sleep in her own cot. She wants to sleep with us. If we put her back to her cot, she will cry. We call her out little terror... Making daddy ad mummy suffer every night, but we still love her lah
Wanna check with you ladies on something that is bothering me. How long does it take for yr private area and episotomy wound to stop feeling painful and you can really have a good "wash" for that area? Cos my area is still painful and I dun really dare to wash it too vigorously in case got infection. Felt so uncomfortable...
Yes it's not easy to be a mOther for the first time as we need to adjust ourself to a brand new environment.
But we hv to be strong and take every step slow and steady. Don't be too stressful and sad coz it won't be good
For you. Be strong and am sure when everytime when u look at yr cutie little pie's face , you will feel
Better and u will tend to put aside yr worries.....
Well as for the pain and episiotomy wound, for me so far for all my three birth , by 2 weeks plus all the stitches
Will be gone and the Pain at the private part will last for 4 or 5 days.... Is yr pain actually come from the episotomy area?
And is the discomfort is felt when u want to sit ?
