that happened to us with #1 at compasspoint. just arrived and bb sleeping soundly in baby bjorn, suddenly bb started crying and screaming until the whole face red. even to the point mouth open screaming no sound come out kind. everyone was staring at us like "dont you know how to handle your bb?". as new parents then we felt so malu, quickly go to changing room to change her diaper but no use, still crying. there was another bb in the room with mom and grandma, they asked if we needed help and the grandma started suggesting everything that could be wrong. i really panic, hide into the nursing room with bb and hb. lol feel helpless didn't know what to do. end up making up some formula and feeding her though it wasn't her feeding time yet. she drank and went back to sleep. after a while then we dare to leave the room. heehee
lilmoo, i also resorted to making milk immediately to 'shut' her cries, she din want to drink initially, continued crying, after that i think she tired liao, so started drink. HENG ah...after that she went back to sleep loe...

Reminds me of what happened whenever we bring Maverick out. #2 is like #1...Merlion King...#2 merlion @ Pd, @ Parkway Parade Ya Kun, @ TMC Delifrance & endless times on me & hubby....made us even more paisay...we tried everything...cover him from head to toe like a mummy, burp him several times within one feed, dun carry him after feeding....all no use...then sure got very "free" aunties come over & ask u WHETHER U KNOW WHAT U ARE DOIN!!</font>
- do you place baby in lying position or semi-recline after feeding?
<font color="ff3366"> semi-recline @ angle of 45 degree from horizon.</font>
- do you keep your leftover fm and try to let bb finish within that hour? if so, do you leave the bottle to warm or just let bb drink cold?
<font color="ff3366"> Mine is ebm, I would keep it warm if baby is awake & may drink soon, else I would put it aside & heat up later.
Catherine, wah you got 2 merlion kings, i got 1 oredy buay tahan, always merlion till everywhere
thanks for answering my questions eh..keke...
i've been using NUK teats since day 1, recently found that andrea is always not finishing her milk, especially the last bit always take so long to finish. i thought she don't like the milk, or milk is too cold, or the teat she doesn't like. decided to change to the original pigeon teat that comes along with her bottles. this morning, she managed to finish the whole bottle in less than 5 min..hopes she keeps that up every single feed....
kris & lilmoo, why must rotate thawed ebm & freshly pumped ones? N after the 6in1 1st jab, do you still bring bb to PD or GP for growth assessment, does the doc fill up the healthbooklet on pg7?
i thought all their bags can hang on stroller? i didn't try as my stroller is not very convention so i won't be surprise if it cannot hang on my stroller. will try to take pix, what do you want to see? the sumo is really big, i like the design from the website but when i saw it at the expo, i find that it is too big for my built, best you go down to M&B store to see all the designs in person.
i think the nuk teat same as medela's, my #1 drink quite slow with medela teat like very xin ku, then i change to pigeon teat and she's happy can finish milk quickly. since then we used pigeon until she self weaned off teat. now #2 using pigeon also.
with normal freezer in fridge, ebm should be kept 3-4 months at most, so by rotating the frozen stash is more fresh. also ebm change with bb's need, so by rotating the bb will drink ebm closer to bb's need in a certain stage/period. my bb's 6 in 1 was done by pd, she did the growth assessment and filled up the health book.
mousy_pig, for the jab i went to GP n i did tell nurse that i want to do a growth assessment but GP only took the weight of bb den didnt fill up health book...n i chck the receipt, only charge cost of jab.
lilmoo, oic...now must start rotating my gal's feed liaoz. Thks
<font color="ff3399">Jam, u really drama leh.. kiki like siao charbo chasing the cab rite.. is it u keep waving ur hands like crazy then the cab driver scared so faster speed off.. kiki.. somemore u so tall sure the driver shd be able see u in rear mirror.. then maybe he see u so slim n tall tot u sprinter so let u chase alil bit lor..
but seriously hor, sometimes they fetch so many ppl until numb liao, so b4 get off n paying must tell them still got things in the boot. or if u alone, can even request if they can help u take the stroller out cos u carrying baby n diaper bag mah..
re: BM fattening baby
actually i think bm fed babies supposed to be more lean n michelin cos bm v easily digested n is 80% water ma.. but i also guess my baby double her birth weight at 6weeks cos bm more fats cos the bottle always v oily compared to the FM fed at night..
jam, i kinda feed cait when she's in a sitting position with her head tilted back, so the milk will flow down, then near the last 20-40ml then i let her drink more horizontal so she more comfy if not she'll wriggle.. then if she let out big burp i let her lie down with a pillow below to prop up her head or lie sideways in case she vomit n choke herself..
then if there's leftover more than 50-60ml i'll keep the fm in warmer, sometimes even to her next feed.. dun wanna waste fm mah.. but i read b4 if bm there's antibodies so can keep, fm no antibodies so keep at own risk la.. </font>
Talk about merlion..8-( my dear son just merlion after I fed & burped him an hour ago...he suddenly cried, i rushed over & picked him up & he merlion...*sob* *sob* I changed & cleaned him, took a both (cos I also kenna) then come out...he slept soundly...duh....
Rose: Dun need to get the 2oz Destini...what I did is I took some & put in a small nice container then can put Destini, 4 pcs of diapers, Ruyi oil into a wet bag...
kekeke Jam,i can already picture a xiao char bo with long arms long legs chasing after a cab kekeke but dont say u lar,if it is me,I will surely do the same too!
Can understand the embarrassment from a wailing baby.That time when he was born,we took him from nursery and he started crying and we didnt know what he wanted.Felt that the way back to nursery was so long and we had so many curious stares from visitors!
KP: ya e flow is faster, but chelsey nv choke becuz of e flow, i changed cuz she was mkit of pekcek noise den when ever she drink so i change to teat 2 den she drink properly.. anyway nw she is drinking 110ml-140ml every 3 hr..night time last feed ard 12 den slp till morning..
KP and Audrey, i keen to meet up at vivo this friday too! then i can collect the destin cream from ya.
mummies, din login cos feeling upset over weeknd...damn sim tia! my freezer broke down during the weekend and most of frozen milk which i stocked up for work has thawed! in the end have to throw away abt 20 packets!!
ur freezer is the one wif fridge or the chest freezer? muz b damn heartache.
i got the large size coz let #1 bring sch to bring back her clothes, towel n bedsheet to wash daily. if u onli wanna keep bb's used handkerchief, medium is gd enough. i had a medium one for bb when i go out.</font>
