My day with Terry

Basically everyday my routine of taking care of baby is the same..since now i'm a 24/7 mom. As he growing up taking care of him is much more easier than the first month and now I can handle him more smooth, from bathing to cleaning to feed to nursing. Mid-nite wake was 1 time....and time of consumption also less than previous.

He is going to reach 2 months old next week...time flies, day aft day and it was just a blink...my day not really hard to pass..now I'm all alone taking care of baby...daytime no helper....mum just come n look for me aft a few days and stay for few hours ...the disadvantage is when I in the midst of cook or wash, he cries or screaming...there I hav to put down my work ...and run to carry or swing him...running in n out...the worst is if he is not sleep aft milk then I can't get my work done too and just nurse him to sleep...

Some progress growing of Terry...milk consumption 7-8 times...screaming n crying noise is getting louder now...started to smile and when talking to him he will like wan to response with some 'hhmm..ha...' sounds...he intend to putting his thumb into the mouth...that i always found his mitten are wet....

My breastfeeding consider stop now since 5th weeks...as I not putting him to breast and the milk is slowly dry out now...even put to pump, it not expressing much too...the main reason I do not wan to put to breast is becoz it is too messy. When I feeding him the left breast, the right side milk is dripping out....and baby n me is not comfortable when I put him at the right breast...I also do not hav the patient and his demand of consumption.

I hav voice this out to my church fren, she told me that it can gain back the milk if i wan...just to pump frequently say every 2 hours and not put to breast...so that it can take off my problem...I start trying now...hope it helps....but every 2 hours is just too fast....anyway i will try...reading the infant formula tin...saying 'Susu ibu adalah makanan terbaik untuk bayi' it was just like hitting hitting me to giv baby more breast milk than formula...and some advise of the benefits of breastfeeding, I hope that I still able to breastfeed him later...
