Titus @ 3 months
Finally, 1 small milestone. Did times fly? Hmm, maybe not when you are the one going through it day by day? Thankfully, my maid arrived soon enough to help ease the load. So now I have more “me” and baby time, without the need to keep stopping to wash the milk bottles, worry about sterilising my pump kit in time and etc. How about my baby? He is getting more interactive, smiling at people, making all the funny sounds or should I call it noises? Then again, it is always music to my ears isn’t it?
Actually, was it hard to take care of a new born? You bet, the hardest part is to guess what he wanted. Also, you worry is he sick or not feeling comfortable when everything seems wrong. Then again, after trying everything, you are just relieve that it is just one of theses day whereby he is just being cranky and it will soon passed. I think for me, the most time consuming part is breast pumping, when I am up every 4 hours to pump. These are the trying times when I have to “force” myself awake to pump, unable to carry my baby when he is crying his heart out. Then I asked myself, why am I getting myself in such situations each time? However, eact time, when he had the satisfied look after a good breastfeed session, you tell yourself, all is worth it and you will do it again. The bond and the feeling is no where near when you bottle feed him, strangely, but the baby seems to know the difference. However, each time, you are relief, he cried out for milk when being outdoors, you can quickly direct latch him to provide the much need comfort and to satisfy his hunger.
Oops, did I come too near? The cock-eyed look! :p
Who is blurping me, let’s me check it out now!
The satisfied look after breastfeeding… 🙂
The drowsy look, everything looked blur now…
Good morning, I am awake!
