piyo: i was told the same thing by 2 diff PD also. one told me that its ok to let bb drink water if they want and not via force. another told me it will disrupt thier milk feeding.. dunno which is which. i do give water in between feeds, but not everyday and amount is either few sips or the most 5-10mls. bb also dont like bah. hey, would love to meet u again. last time we met was at EMQ's place during BBQ. but i cant go to pinkie's hse leh. me got driving lessons that day.


Meetup at Bawbaw's place - 17th MARCH @1pm. (Near Serangoon MRT)

hi fluffy, have decided not to give him pneomoccoccal now. My pd did not give me the details, well maybe because i did not ask her. Will wait till my boy is 2 then. Thanks for info, fluffy. He has taken the rotavirus vaccine though.

samval...perhaps diff pd diff school of thots but i kind of buy the story that it might disrupt their feeds so now we dun give plain water totally...just now after jab we try to feed him a little and realised that he's no longer loving it as much as before....would love to mit u again too....not possible to postpone ur driving lessons ar...timing coincide?

so it's normal for them to sleep more and feed lesser post jab huh....

gwen, which you bought? i bought 90 cm diameter one... yah quite a bit of water... many many pails... hehe... according to the seller, each time water cost is about 50 cts... so i suppose, still safer and cheaper then going public pool.
 
dazed: still got size? dunno wat i bought cos i got it from another mommy. u used water from the heater rite cos bb still young cant take cold water hor. cos someone mentioned that its better not to bring bb to public pool unless hes at least 6mths due to chlorine. so was thinking to let him try play at home 1st. haha.. the thot of using so much water n worry tat the water may turn cold after tub is fully filled kinda turns mi off.

thank you for the welcome!

samval: do your bb drink enough even though he is struggling with the teat?

was wondering how often does babies wake up in the night? does anyone try to time their bb's feeds?

littlegifts: Different babies have different sleep patterns etc. Some may sleep through the night from as young as 1 month, and some take 1 year or more...really depends. I used to time my first child's feeds when he was a baby, but now for #2, I just let her tell me when she needs her feed...since about 2 weeks old she has only 1 night feed, currently 7+ weeks old

LittleGifts: I don't time my girl anymore. These few nights after her last feed at about 9.30pm - 10.30pm, she's able to sleep till 3am - 5am when she'll poo..( she likes to poo during this timing since birth..don't know why).. then sometimes i will just give her the pacifier and she will sleep till 8am.. or she'll ask for milk. I'm already very pleased.. at least 4-5 hours of undisturbed sleep.

Sus: Yes by the third day on medication i do not feel that pain anymore.I went to Lilian from tmc. If you went on Mrs Wong's antenatal class, she is the lady who always helped Mrs Wong in the class. Call to make an appt with TMC parent craft. Go only after you started your antibiotics for at least 3 days. You able to find their number ? Now i pumping in the dark, cannot search for their card. Will post their number later!

You got use cold cabbage? I did as per instruction from my Doc. Not sure will reduce MS or not, but at that time, i just wanted to feel better.
