Can’t believe my maternity leave is over, I’m going to back to work again =(
Ainsley’s first meetup with Baby K.
Ainsley has been co-sleep with me ever since she was born, was her first time co-sleep with grandma since I was admitted to hospital after Baby K born. She only get to meet baby K on the second day. They came over after lunch time, Ainsley was so curious seeing her baby brother for the first time. And she requested to carry him like her own toys. WH’s relative came over in the evening to see baby too. All of them only went back around 9pm.
We discharge on the 3rd day instead of 4th day since Doctor Ang say I’m good to discharge. Baby K was back with home with us after the phototherapy. The first visit polyclinic on the 7th day is different from Ainsley case, baby K was asked to test on jaundice and his reading is over 200. Doctor asked me to cut down on ginger and traditional confinement, and we have to come back next day to check if his jaundice is going down.
As baby K was so sleepy, I have to express out to feed him to ensure he is taking enough milk. And thankfully the jaundice reading did went down next day. And we were ask to come back for the next week as well, I didn’t follow for all the trips down to Poly, it was too tiring for me. One of the day we are force to wait for more than 2 hours to get everything done. Thankfully his jaundice reached a safe level within 2 weeks time. We did not have this issue with Ainsley previously, she was all fine after discharge from hospital. After jaundice, the poor baby was having flu as Ainsley spread the virus. On his full moon, WH get him a Mickey mouse cake, which Ainsley happily sing him a birthday song, haha.
Second month, baby eczema and cradle scalp start showing sign on his face and head. My poor baby start with some rashes on his face and get worse over days. So we have no choice to bring him to see doctor and prescribe him the medicine. Apart from that he is cheerful and showing me his smilling face.
Third month, went back to polyclinic for his vaccination. One dose rotavirus plus two jab. He cry so loud! Must be very painful for him and shock as just woke up from nap. Doctor commented on his weight, bigger size as average baby.
Baby K is 4 months old now, my fatty boy is growing more active and strong each day. Fully breastfeed baby and with a good weight, probably another michellin to be. Just that he been suffering with baby eczema and cradle scalp, And he has been down with flu again for the second time. My poor boy, doctor does not recommend any meds as he is too young for that. When he can’t sleep well, means I can’t have my sleep as well. Thankful that WH or mil will help, else I would not be able to cope with this. My happy boy can now flip over and turn in different direction. Hopefully his flu, ezcema and cradle scalp go over soon.
Ainsley start her new school earlier in this month, so fast she is adapting well. Definitely she is jealous with baby sometimes, but she also loves her brother a lot, always wanted to kiss n sayang him. I hope the two of them grow up as close sibling. Ainsley has become more talkative compare to last year, she loves dance and sing. But still very shy and quiet with strangers. Will updates her new school when I have time..
