Lilpreciois- I must really salute u for being a superman!



Ger stil not well n when daddy tried e pigeon aspirator on her (dunno why but I dare not suck ), she regurgitated out her milk together with sticky phlegm... Than gotta change her.. Seriously hope she recover fast cos seeing her choke on her own mucus n saliva and than got startled from her sleep, see Liao also heart pain.. Saw pd today but pd nv say anything abt her phlegm leh.. Any medication to take to help her ease her phlegm? Also, am curious why pd gave eye drop to be put on her nose ar?



So tired that I skipped my 10pm pump n will probably wake up at 12 for last pump.. How we know ss stabilize so that I can drag my pumping ? Do nothing but pump e whole day, washing n sterilizing .. I wan my life !

Allets, my boy had a chesty/phlegmy cough and pd gave mucosolvan, 1ml 2 times a day. Think it helps him cos he's not coughing much now.

jaime, family bonding with yr parents, u go ahead la. Pai sei to intrude, we can arrange another play date for the tots. Downtown east is explorer kids, it's huge but i find the place smelly lei, like they don't maintain.



tres, can go mitten free once u've trimmed bb's nail. They can start to feel also ma.



Angelia, I trim when bb's sleeping or when he's latching with little movements.

Angelia, I let him go mitten free for a while as his hands get cold pretty fast...try trimming when your bb is asleep...



rach, thanks for explaining! lol



aaa, yes! I got it just now! Thanks! =)



Mummies, does your bb cough or choke during feeds? My boy tends to do that pretty often recently and that can be very scary! He looks like he is out of breath!

Lailai : try burp your bb when bb drink half way thru.. If bb stop sucking than you just pull out the teats and burp them... My girl also will short of breathe de.. So what i do is, when se drink till around 60ml than i see she almost push out the teats than i will burp her.. Anyway, my girl is drinking 110ml now.. So she drink till 50ml , i burp her than continue the leftover 60ml than finish liao burp again..

Summer mummy

I've been taking care of 2 kids myself since brought bb home frm hospital. Practise makes perfect. It's been 5weeks plus so I have sort of a 'routine'...same, #1 need me to out him to bed. If #2 no sleep I will carry bb into room n hold bb n put #1 to sleep. Then after #1 ko, I will try to make #2 sleep or feed her again. Then wait for last pump before bed. If by then bb still not sleeping, I will put her onto my lap n pump. Me using manual pump must use hand power, so must alternate sides of boobs with bb lying on my lap...if I put her to bed she will cry n wake up everyone

then finish liao I will hold bb n pour bm into cups, 'try'to wash up the pump parts. Usually I fail coz holding bb in 1hand can't wash so I soak first. Then put #2 to sleep liao then I wash the parts quickly n run back to room, n try to slot in a brushing of my teeth, wash face, pee n drink water. Sometimes bb never sleep I have to skip all these...



Typing all these oso tired lar

...and also, #1 comes back frm cc...on good days we hold hand n walk. Bad days ask me to piggyback him. So if I sling #2, still

must piggyback #1...reached home, need to shower him. Good days he ok to shower. Bad days cries n say dun want shower. Worse days say dun want shower n bb cries. So left hand hold bb, right hand shower #1...wipe dry, changed. Time for dinner. If bb cries, I hold bb in left hand, right hand eat my dinner n guide #1 to finish his dinner. Then #1 can stone infront if tv (god bless channel 311) for the next 1-2hrs. Usually at that time bb is awake so I attend to her but I try to spend more time with #1...

Then settle bedtime snack, time for bed



really peifu mummies who have to look after a bb & #1 the whole day!!! Kudos..my crazy hours r frm 5pm onwards, u mummies have crazy 24hrs!

lailai, yes, my boy does cough sometimes when drinking.



summer's mummy, my day is sometimes like yrs too. No.1 is going through her terrible two phrase, I'm screaming at the top of my voice everyday. Well, I think as women, our strength and capacity is greater than that of men, being mothers our capacity is stretched even greater. Jia you!



pixie, yeah, sometimes beacuse of the kids, I can't even slot in time for teeth brushing and toilet! Can't believe it. Mothers are always the last to have meals, last to sleep, last to everything. Maybe first to waking up. haha.

Wah pixie.. U r one wonder mummy too.. I totally feel u when my #2 cries fr milk n #1 wants dinner, I actually use one hand carry n feed #1 n another hand to help #2 w his food.. Can go ting tong..!

Chen: haha! Agree w yr saying.. Last in everything except waking up! Hurhur..



Summers mommy: let's jia you tog ya.. My hb's nt hm today n I'm amazed at hw I cld stretch my limits to bring both out n nt lose my temper when Jav actually threw tantrums at e mall for 15 mins.. I guess all mummies r really wei da.. N we r like rubber bands.. Stretching our limits everyday..!

I gave my boy febm yesterday .. He was excited when I say mummy milk. But after he taste he say he dun wan . I smell also fishy ...

This morning I try my freshly squeeZe one .. He is ok .. So I guess he doesn't like the fishy smell lor

So I think in order not to create so much febm later no one wana drink n I only pump the most in the morning . I wil give one feed of ebm to my boy in morning



So now I need to concentrate on settling my girl bottle problem Liao

I wanna call my LC coz she was the one who say only introduce bottle after 4-6 weeks to avoid nipple confusion

So I wan her to her to help me solve lor .. Sigh

Good to hear that. Hope your pain will go away asap, and don't come back again [IMG=http://www.singaporemotherhood.com/forumboard/clipart/happy.gif]

 
bb rabit : Think its normal to leave like 20-30 ml per feed. cause Josh is like that even until now. so i agak agak add 20 ml from his normal feed. but Jordan always finished his milk til last drop



lilprecious : aiyoh, hang in there okay. ur 1 super mummy. hope jav jay will get better soon. jia you



summer's mummy : walauw u scare me leh. next week hb also overseas n i gotno one to help me lor. how ah, dont think i can handle both but no choice



pixie : wah ur another 1 super mummy. i handle both full day cause josh isnt on cc yet. but at least i got helper who help me with washing n etc. but yeah 24/7 for 2 kids r not easy

Won mummy

I also interested to know how to make baby sleep thru out the night. wonder if need to give him more milk. Mummies who managed to do, can share?



I got one nagging qn in my mind. How to make chill ebm warm up asap? I'm using a thermo cup but still it takes about 5min. He will cry and scream like no tmr, scaring me to tears. I am lost, don't know if I should warm up the ebm every 2 hours and wait for him to wake up. Any advice? Would appreciate it lots lots

2Ks: Jav seems to be back onto the sick track again.. sigh! hes coughing so badly n haf fever again today but luckily he stopped his dirrehea alrdy.. so headache.. its exactly 1 wk tt he has been sick...

ya, tts the bad thing of going cc, big one sick come back will spread to small one.. ya, i make Jav wash his hands n feet when he comes hm.. sometimes we even bathe him once more.. to reduce bacteria, but still..*shakes head*...

ltr gotta go tuina for both again..wanna pull hair!!!!



Jaime: my boy needs me to put him to slp too.. but b4 i gave birth, i managed to train him to slp by 10 plus so i can haf some time to settle didi.. but when u r all alone, its v difficult to judge by time, cos when didi cries, den will haf to stop n handle him also.. so wad i do frm last wk, i bring didi in tog.. make him slp also n Jav now gt used to having him in the rm, n slping with him.. so nw if im lucky both will slp lastest by 11 or 10 plus.. den i'll do last pump n faster go ZZzz..



Angelia: try to keep bb up in the day.. its nt easy like Fel said.. but once bb gets used to routine, he/she will stay awake dat time liao..

maybe i roughly tell u wad i do..



7.30am -drink milk , n he'll continue slping while i do some hsework

8.30am - i'll tell him " its morning alrdy.. time to wake up ok.. den i'll start shaking his hands n talk to him.. if he still slps, i'll carry him up, play w him n wake him up until his eyes wide open den i'll tell him "we going to bathe.."

9 plus: i'll place him on mat, with him wide awake, den let him entertain himself while i get ready water n clothes n all..

den bathe him..



n normally aft bath, he will nt slp until next feed abt 10.30am.. n he'll actually stay awake till maybe 11 plus den slp till next feed..



the next time he'll stay awake will be arnd 3 plus to 4 plus n he'll nap.. den the next time will be 8pm to 10pm n slp aft his last feed.. n normally he will wake arnd 3-4am for one feed.. den the next feed will b morning feed alrdy..



angelina: thanks n u hang on dere too! =D u r doing super well also..keke



won_mummy, mimimo..

wad i do for bb's last feed, i add in a scoop of FM to keep him fuller.. so he only wakes once in the night.. if im lucky, 4-5am.. if not, will be 3am... n once they r used to tt timing, they'll jus slp by themselves thru tt time..



mimimo, normally, i'll warm up the milk 15 mins b4.. bb cries, u haf to tell him to wait.. they do understand de.. Jay screams like mad too when he wans milk n its nt delivered to him.. esp sometimes if im busy with #1.. i'll always talk to him.. tell him "didi, wait awhile.. mummy's busy.." or " mus wait awhile ok, its nt warm enuf yet..mus learn to wait" so when he hears my voice, he will stop crying n really wait awhile till i attend to him.. but in ntw mus reassure him with yr voice.. i don carry him, cos if i do, he'll think im gonna feed him alrdy.. n if milk nt given to him, hes gonna scream even louder.. =) tts my own personal dealing w my son..hehe

Angelia,

Did u off the light at night when sleep? I'll tell Shay it's sleeping time Liao then off the light. So far it's ok that he'll dozz off himself whenever I off the light unless uncomfy like stomach bloated or hungry.

I make him awake after his 5pm feed... No carry Or pat... Keep talking n play with him.... Hold his hand n shake shake... Zek ark though...

Anyway even he sleeps, when my girl back frm cc he'll nvr get to sleep one... She's a chatterbox n always wan to sayang/baobao didi...

Then I'll shower or wipe bb to change into pj. By 8pm feed, I dun have to make him sleep Liao. He already super tired n dozz off while drinking his milk. Will put him in room with light off. In day time he'll wake up 3hrly for milk but night in dark room usually is 4-5hrly. I dream feed him at 12am after my last pump n he'll wake up everyday 4am for milk...

Very glad that his routine is kinda stable now.... Even if when time I wan earlier sleep n feed him 11pm or over at 1am, he still wake up at 4am for milk one....

Hi Mummies,

My baby does not sleep at night. sob sob....

Need advice again. For 3.5 weeks baby how much ebm does your bb drink? I can only pump out about 90ml per 4 hours, is it consider very little? I read some mummies can yield 200-300ml. Been drinking papaya fish soup already but the yield is only like this leh.
