I gave up on my clothes today.Taking off my clothes every <30min is a chore,So I chose to stay half-nakedSo that I can feed my perpetually hungry baby. My Baby Tracker app is filled with activities, EXCEPT for sleep activities. She would sleep when I carry her and wake up the very second I put her down. I can spend 20min trying to get her to sleep and then she wakes up after 10. Once, it’s 4min. Don’t sleep nvm, mama can play with you but why must you scream cry leh?
2.40am: Woke up with painful leaky boobies and carried baby out of her cot to nurse her since it’s about time for her next feed. But she was sleeping so soundly and didn’t want her supper! No choice gotta pump and zzz a short while later, she pooped and started moving. When she’s awake, she will realise that she’s hungry and demand for milk but I’m still pumping. Activated Daniel to attend to her first before I took over to feed. Following a loud and long burp, Shift 1 ended 3.30am ✅
Last night, I get to be a baby girl again. When my parents found out that Daniel has a wedding dinner to attend, they offered to come to my place. I still do the work where baby is concerned but thanks to them, I’ve proper food for dinner and I’ve company (rmb how night scares me a lottle now?). They watched over baby while she slept and I managed to sneak in an hour of rest as a result. I was able to pump in peace. They left only when Daniel came back at 11.40pm.
Baby has been drinking 120ml for some time now and the interval between feeds range from 2-4 hours, which makes a total of 800-900ml a day. This excludes the amount that she drinks when latched on. I’m not sure if we’re overfeeding because she doesn’t seem to be displaying any signs of it. Weight gain is also healthy and not excessive.
