Bathing time!

Bathing time for baby.... was really an exciting and interesting moment for me. First I thought yeah my Mother-in-law is helping me so I'm fine. Then few days later I got a sore red eye infection and baby has to be put away for a week. By then when she's back my Mother-in-law got the sore red eye! Gosh.... so I am left with bathing baby on my own. First time my hubby was beside me so I'm ok as he reminded me and help me in some way.
Then the next day I was on my own.... alone with baby! I did try my best not to think negatively, so in the end it went well. Not much hassel and baby didn't scream or cry! She just stare at me. LOL...... so I'm doing fine with her. So each and everyday I will slowly try to let her get use to the bath and help her enjoy it as I am planning to teach her swimming later in the months to come.

Brestfeeding Mommy

I have been brestfeeding for more than a month now ; still I feel that I am lack of milk supply. Well, my baby girl latch on well with no problem, so poor mommy is feeling bad that her milk supply has not been established yet.
Personally I think I have not been feeding her often, this is because in a confinement centre this is quite hard to do so and then after that Mommy's been ill and unable to feed her for about a week. I had to express out manually using pump. Hopefully when mommy recover she's able to brestfeed fully. My wish is to brestfeed for at least 6 months. Now I can only keep on pumping to maintain the milk supply.

Bedak kid came to visit me & baby with her mother.... of course they bring gifts and oh I have lots of gifts now that I think I can't really use all of it! Then I chat with her mother for quite some time and he was bored. Me and her mother talk about my experiences and how am I going to handle my new baby and some tips to care for her. Lots of ideas and thoughts are shared among us, mothers. I am getting confuse too!
Suddenly, bedak kid was asking me questions like, "Does baby Cher Ru smile or talk often?" Hmm... well I told him,"Baby does not smile a lot but she does when she's dreaming or even when sucking milk! She still does not know how to talk but making some sounds like 'Ooo' & 'Aaa'." Bedak kid ask some more..... "So baby knows I am here to see her?" I say, "Well, she can see shadows only and her sense of smell is stronger.... she knows who her mother is and the rest she will know if you hold her more and talk to her."
After all explanation, Bedak kid went on to chat with her but not touching and disturbing her just talk and baby seems to listen and slightly open and close her eyes. I guess bedak kid's curiosity has been aroused while my baby seems to learn to listen to sounds and sense the existence of people around her, and my guess is she loves attention too!

3 Weeks Old

Little Cher Ru is 3 weeks old. Now she spends more time awake after feeding; she opens her eyes more and shows me more expressions while I photograph her. I think she kinda likes it as she stares at the camera more..... the trick is my camera is red in colour... atracts her I guess!
When that kid looks into your eyes and you know it's yours, you know what it means to be alive. ~ Anonymous

Starting a new life soon!

It's been 20days past since my baby's born. I think I am having a panic attack soon. Well, I'm in a confinement centre now, most of the time I just eat and sleep and feed baby, that's about all. It's good life here in the centre; but as times goes by I am starting to feel panic as I will be on my own very soon. Well, short to say I will be a full-time mommy soon, I guess that's when the real thing starts to hit me!
First of all - I think there's not much help around from parents...
Secondly - I am new to all things.... suddenly feel like an idiot! Hah!
Thirdly - I am practically on my own! Gosh lots of things happening at the same time!
Forth - I think I will go crazy if baby cries out loud!
Although I am most excited in this big project, but I am all nervous as well as I do not know what's coming and I couldn't really prepare much! Ouch, I am stress!
Hopefully all is not that bad and hopefully I can cope........ well. :)
Suddenly, through birthing a daughter, a woman finds herself face to face not only with an infant, a little girl, a woman-to-be, but also with her own unresolved conflicts from the past and her hopes and dreams for the future.... As though experiencing an earthquake, mothers of daughters may find their lives shifted, their deep feelings unearthed, the balance struck in all relationships once again off kilter. ~Elizabeth Debold and Idelisse Malave
