i am...

5 weeks young!

Current behaviour:
tdo kejap2 waktu siang. Baby can do power nap too? hoho. Avg tdo 10-15min...paling lama 1/2jam tu pon mama rasa nk lompat bintang dah :p

Mlm consistent bgn every 1hr for nursing. Masuk subuh sampai ke 9am mmg x tdo dah..tahan mata org kata. Awatla x ikut perangai mama and abah yg kuat tdo :p

Mintak2la awak berubah bila mama dh masuk keje nnt. Bateri mama mmg blink2 merah sokmo...flat dik ooii!

Lega sgt dah setel Maps..sambil awak tak keruan sbb takde org pegang...sambil mama kelam kabut key in results.

Cluster feeding and growth spurts

as early as 5 week? Like it or not this is true and am trying to 'enjoy' every minute of it!
Kellymom says it is common for newborn to hit his growth spurts at 4-6weeks and goes into cluster feeding...sigh*

So what Irfan does nowadays...nurse almost every hr at night, and continuous nursing throughout the day with a short 10-15min power nap in between..sabar sabar! I am considered lucky if his sleeping time stretch for 1 hr..which is very rare to happen. The time will pass before u knew it, must keep reciting this mantra to keep me calm...so bertabah jela yer mama!

The good side of cluster feeding, this will establish the right level of milk supply to satisfy his needs. The not so good thing abt it....it is so tiring that u practically dont hv the time to do other things other than glued to ur couch :( And the sad thing is, theres no way u can find time to express ur milk for the frozen EBM huhu. mcm susah nk capai kpi b4 masuk keje nih haishhh

ok mama..igt..this is common and not only u are experiencing it. I looked up in the forum for this topic n there was this one mommy whos son is nursing for a continuous 8hr during the day! Huish sgtla menduga iman :)

KEEP.CALM.AND.ENJOY.CLUSTER.FEEDING.

Stok EBM selepas sebulan

adalah dlm 109oz setakat hari ini...stok agak kurang memberangsangkan compared to Ammar dulu (150oz dlm masa sebulan pertama).

Start pam 3 hari lepas Irfan bersalin. Sekali pam dptla dlm 40ml (sebelah B)...kdg2 bole reach 60ml (2oz). Selalu pam sebelah je, sbb Irfan tidur kejap2..so spare sebelah lagi for DF..if not mahu mengamuk mamat tu kalo tetiba dia bgn and mama baru lepas pam.

Timing mengepam x tentu. Selalu 2x je dpt...siang n tgh mlm. tu pon depends la kalo dia bgn every 1hr time mlm mmg x dpt nk pam la. Mama pon nk rehat jugak hoho. Nk cari waktu pam time siang lg mencabar considering Irfan tidur kejap2 x sampai 30min..kalo dpt sejam tu mmg bertuah sgt dah mama!

Bila baca kat website kellymom, rupanya normal utk momies yg full time bf utk pam around 0.5 to 2oz for each session. Adoi lega bila baca! actually dh risau sebenarnya bila dpt kumpul stok sket je...tp takpela kena pujuk hati utk usaha dan buat yg terbaik. Moga Allah permudahkn perjlnan bf mama buat Irfan kali ni amin...

Oh ni pic Ebm Irfan yg diperah masa hari ke4 -6 kot...color masih kekuningan sbb belum keluar susu yg mature lagi :)

Hepi breastfeeding mommies!

Irfan 1 month

Kelmarin pegi klinik utk injection 1 month - Hep B.
Biasalah meraung kejap, then ok :)

Utk rujukan mama:
Berat tambah sket je - dari 2.72kg ke 3.1kg
Head circumference - bertambah dari 33cm ke 36cm

Behavior - masih kurang tidur siang, susah benar nak dpt tidur at least sejam. Malam kerap bangun, mcm malam tadi almost every hour bgn, adoi mencabar keimanan mama si kecik nih!
