Of eeky stuff...


At times,I think Aidan looks v adult..especially when he isn't v happy~



*sigh*..Aidan's still purging...Had bought the medication recommended by the paed and had given him 2 doses (1 per day) as per instruction but he is still expurging watery stools..Funny thing is, he does it when I'm feeding him (formula - not bfeeding)..so in the middle of his feed, he'll start squirming and his face will turn red and I'll smell a distinct odour..Of coz I'll scramble then, and quickly bring him to the changing pad to help him along the way.. And *sob*, he's been rejecting me when I try to breastfeed him...First time that he's done that. And to make it worse, he'll suckle briefly and then, he'll turn away and start sucking on his fingers! *arghhhh!* Hm, maybe it's his fingers that making him sick.

I wonder whether he has any stomach upset, like us adults do. I mean, he's pretty well-behaved as he doesn't cry or fuss about that much..and he's still kinda active..so, if not for the diarrhea, I wouldn't know that he is sick...

Hopefully, he gets better soon or else I'll have to bring him to the paed, which I'm trying to avoid coz that would mean that I would have to go to a hospital again..

Maybe huh he picked up something that gave him intestinal virus *sob*
Hmmm.. could it be that he wasn't *very* hungry when you nurse him hehe. Sometimes OCA also does the same thing... act very dao and refuse to drink.

Hope the little darling gets well soon!

Re:
Has OCA ever gotten intestinal virus? It causes diarrhea?
Unlikely that he wasn't hungry..It was during the first feed right after he woke up in the morning..and he had also just 'purged' so he should be hungry..I'd tried it later in the afternoon..strange thing is, he refused it when he was lying in bed but when I cradled it, he was better but he only suckled for awhile and feel alseep in like 1 min..

Thanks..I hope he gets better too *sigh* Heartpain man..

Sleepy, not hungry
hi Angie,
think Aidan is sleepy, not hungry, that's why he's "rejecting" by pulling off. read this from Elizabeth Pantley's No Cry Sleep Solution book.
when his diarrhea is better, u may wanna give him some BabyLife from GNC. it's a bifidus powder u can mix with yr mommy's milk or water. good for the intestines. there hv one for adults too.
oh yes, don't change the Avent teat to faster flow. breastfed babies need the newborn teat ALL the time so they get used to "working" for their food.
hope the lil' one gets well soon. u take care too!
hugs,
lily

Re: Sleepy, not hungry
Hey Lily...
I dunno..I usually don't hv a problem when I breastfeed Aidan first thing in the morning coz that's when he really hungry..even if he's sleepy, he will definitely suckle a little and fall asleep soon after...but today, he simply wouldn't take it and uses his hands to push my breast away and start sucking his fingers..bah. And the thing..I usually nurse him to sleep in the morn and in the afternoons so the whole of today, he hardly slept...tho he was groggy..
Thanks for ur advise on Babylife..will definitely look it up when I visit GNC..
Yeah..don't worry..am still using the newborne teats coz he drinks from his bottle really fast so I've no problem with it...

Appreciate ur advice...does Qile have problems like that at Aidan's age?

He could be allergic to cow's milk. Charlene had really bad diarrhoea when we gave her cow's milk when she was a baby. We switched her to soy formula till she's about six months.

Re:
Yeah..I reckon so too but am just wondering why did he suddenly develop an allegry for cow's milk :(...
Paed did say it could be lactose intolerance ..switch to soy-formula n continue to breastfeed him..

Poor baby!! He looks so sad in the pics, and like he lost some weight.

Perhaps you may want to switch to soy formula and just try and see if there is any improvement. Or try the bifudus culture that someone else recommended.

I don't know if the rejection of you is cos he doesn't want to drink at all, or because he doesn't want to bf any more. Christopher rejcted me near the end and I decided to wean him but because I wanted to tail down my milk production slowly I stil continued pumping for a couple of weeks and gave him EBM + formula. You could try EBM, it would give Aidan the benefit of you milk without the pain of trying to get him to suckle.

But if it's cos Aidan doesn't want to bf, then it could be because he's tired from the purging and doesn't want to work so hard for food.

And the reason he poops when he drinks formula is cos the drinking and the milk going into his tummy wakes up his gut and it becomes active thereby pushing out stuff the other end. It probably doesn't happen with bfeeding cos the flow is slow and not fast like formula.

But wah... 150ml in 10 min... even now the best Christopher can do is 100ml at one time... about 10 min. He doesn't drink 150ml at one shot unless he is very very very hungry or thirsty... I say again, I'm impressed...

Hi
Yeah, it really hurts when they reject your breasts. I share your feelings. I was weaning my girl earlier this month, reduce to once every 2 days, and now I still try to bfeed but nothing much is left! So it comes as a shock when she rejected me and even start to yell and push me away! Very hurt...

I would like to go back to bfeeding...really enjoy the closeness we share then, especially when she's looking up at you while suckling....my heart melts...

Re: Hi
Realised I didn't reply to this comment of yours..

I know what u mean abt that feelings of rejection. Breastfeeding is one of the best experience I had..that feeling of closeness and bonding with ur child. I really like n treasure that feeling..
Jus wondering..why just once every 2 days and not everyday at least? Your supply must have dropped drastically becuz of that...
