Sometimes baby Ben misses mama’s nipple very much, that will cause him unable to fall asleep…. Daddy tried to give him pacifier from Aunty Mia :-) Anyway, sometimes it works, sometimes no :-p To all mummies out there, you should breast feed if possible, because your babies will miss you the most
Hey, isn’t that baby Ben is chubbier now?
Crying faces, smiling faces, dreaming faces, baby Ben showed all these faces within 10min
We need RM20k for baby Ben’s first year (Not incl. labour cost, which is about RM5k) Do your calculation for your baby too at First-Year Costs Calculator
Baby Ben, this is not money talk, just to share info with all the auntie and uncle out there, all I have will be for you, your siblings and mummy, I love you
Baby Ben is growing fast, he is now almost 5.5kg
On 4 Oct, he was 5.25kg.
On 7 Oct, he was 5.39kg (height = 58.5cm)
2 weeks ago, on 18th Oct, baby Ben’s bilurubin level was still at 189. It is considered quite high for a full month baby. He had prolonged jaundice, either it was Breast Milk Jaundice or it was something not so good. To verify it was Breast Milk Jaundice, he needed to do a blood test which needed to draw 6ml of his blood. What daddy worried was not the 6ml but was the procedure to draw blood, since he is so young, his vein is still very fine, he might be pierced few times…. looking at his active condition, good appetite, consistently gaining weight, colour of his poopoo and urine, everything was ok, daddy decided not to do the blood test so fast. 4 days ago, we went for a bilurubin test and it scored 75, which was good progress. Anyway, we proceeded to stop breastfeeding for 48hrs and the bilurubin level dropped to 43, then doctor confirmed that he had Breast Milk Jaundice and nothing to be worried and allowed baby Ben to continue to have the best food for him, mother’s milk
Pity Ben boy that he was poked for more than 10x for the so many bilirubin tests.
