Hi simp... Pls stay positive n ya, like the mummies say, the worst scenario may not happen so dun think too much.... Jia you!
Hi felixp, same as u, I couldn't decide on whether to let my bb sleep in a room by herself... Its my hubby who push for it, n after toking to some mummies, I realized its not as difficult as I think nor that by doing so, I'm depriving my bb of bonding which I felt initially.... My fren had a cl during confinement n after that on her own. I'm not sure if bb started zzz alone since day 1 cos she does have two spare rooms. Could be one for bb n one for cl...
I wanna work towards what my fren is doing now. Her bb sleeps independently, ok w anyone feeding him, she switches btw bm n formula occasionally n also latch n bottle fed n feeding him in different parts of the house n outside too. So as a result, her bb is not selective in how he's fed or what type of milk, pretty easy to care n bring out so far. She 'll also let her mil n mother take turns to care for him once a week, then she n hubby go pak tor.... Sounds so nice hor... Hope my bb as cooperative too.
Her advice to me is dun too kanchiong initially cos we 'll learn to regconise bb type of cries or just whine. Try to switch btw those I mentioned above so that bb will not be particular. Sleeping alone is ok cos bb monitor very loud even if he only moved a little, n since we feeding every two hr for a start, we r already checking on the bb quite regularly. She said try to latch at night cos better to immediately feed bb so that bb will immediately go back sleep after feed, cos if wait for bottle, bb will cry a bit long n too alert to go back sleep immediately. Then in the day, let whoever, coming to help u bottle feed while u catch some nap.
Her bb monitor is avent but dunno which model, mine is avent n avent has only one type of video monitor.
Just to add on, I'm not buying a cot at all... Just a hand me down playpen for initial months n when bb bigger, I'll let her sleep on single mattress on floor, n when even bigger, buy a bed to put the mattress on top. My worry was if bb climb out of cot n I didn't see.
Hope the info helps....
