Haven't been updating the journal much as my life now revolves round the li' Prince of the household now..When he sleeps, I rest/check email/surf net/nap and when he wakes up, every precious moments is spent with him.

I'm now a baby shutterbug. Thank gawd for digital cameras!!! If not, I would be having to develop tons of photos, most of them of him zzin away.. I now understand why most moms find it so hard to go back to work after their confinement period ends. It's so easy to get attached to your babe...just one smile from him and my heart just melts~~Babies tend to grow so fast that you want to be there to notice all the changes..

Gotta bring Aidan for a routine checkup at Gleneagles later. This will be the last time I will be bringing him to see this Dr KL Yeo that was recommended by Raffles Hospital. She is such a 'brash' person..I can still remember when she told me on the day that we were supposed to be discharged that Aidan had a slight tinge of jaundice & she dismissed it saying it should be ok. I asked her whether she did tested his jaundice level and she said it wasn't necessary. After I insisted on it, the test came back indicating that photo-theraphy was needed! Sheesh!! In the case of my friend's babe Chloe,it was the same too. She even told them to go home. The day after, the Chloe's skin tone became extremely reddish/yellowish and they had to bring the baby to KK during the night. Chloe's jaundice level had reached a high of 300, which was pretty dangerous. Chloe had to stay in the hospital for abt a week for treatment. What kind of pediatrician is this!? We were so pissed by her nonchalence.. And the way she relates to pple is awful...! You have a query and she answers you with one word type of reply. I mean comeon, we are all new parents and definitely worried abt our kids. And she doesn't even try to be 'gentle' or professional..just simply plain bochap..bleah! I'm going back to her today because I just want to check his jaundice level again, since she has all the previous records. This will be the last visit I swear!

P/S : Baby Aidan is 1 week old today :)

Does Aidan ever smile? He looks majorly pissed off all the time. :P

Actually, his main expression is to stare blankly w/out blinking..yeah, looks like he is pretty TL most of the time but it's in a cute way [I'm biased!]..haven't really seen a big wide smile yet though..but he ain't a grouchy kid. Doesn't cry much :)

Ooo, good, good! I like a baby that doesn't cry much. Hehe.
Dec. 29th, 2002 11:33 pm (UTC)
Quite easy to make them stop crying what..feed them heh! Babies r so easily pacified.
eh..u have lotsa experience looking after babies ah?

No lar, enough to make milk, feed them, burp them, change diapers and uh... change clothes. I can't deal with bathing them. Heh.

Hey..not bad already!! My hubby only knows how to carry/feed/burp him..the rest he taijee to me though I do have a confinement lady helping so that's cool..

Babies don't smile when they are this young. Even if they do, it has to be due to reflex. :D

HI Angie

First, a BIG congratulations to u and YC! Aidan got YC's eyes. Btw, read ur story re pediatrician... Do u know that Raffles Hospital opened its Children's Centre in Oct...I must say its pretty good..doc's pretty friendly and as since it's new, there's not many ppl...so we 1st time parents can take our own sweet time during consultation -- I did! You can ask lots and lots of questions w/out being rushed or sushed...I brought Charlize there one time and I must say I'd definitely go back again, though I think its quite pricey.

GIve it a try!

Once again... Congrats! I'll visit u during one mth get-together ok...meanwhile take lots of rest...

How's the breastfeeding?

Hey Rita!!!

R u back in S'pore yet? Thanks for ur well-wishes!

Oh..I didn't know abt the Children Centre. How come the hospital did not recommend it to mothers of new borne babies? Weird! How pricey is it? I actually understand that the first few injections tt the babe is supposed to have in a year are free in polyclinics BUT the wait is usually horrendous since it's usually crowded.
Yeah..the 1st mth celeb would most likely be on the 19 Oct..can't wait to see both you, hubby and Charlize heheh..so tt Aidan can check out one of his gfs-to-be *grin*..

Erm..breastfeeding has not been v successful coz when Aidan had jaundice, nurses recommended that he has more liquids since i was still producing colostrum..actually, I'm still not producing much and Aidan has pretty much rejected me *sob*..am soley on formulas now ...What abt u?

Do send me more pics of Charlize..:)

Congrats Angie & YC.

Actually the wait @ Polyclinics isn't too long. Go just before lunch time. You'll be out in less then 1/2 hour. I went along with my cousin and niece twice when the Daddy was out of town.

Was going to add ... about the breastfeeding ... don't give up yet. Another of my nieces was like Aidan - rejecting breast-milk. Mother's milk Production was also kinda low at first, but now baby refuses to take any other milk cep Mummy's.

Thanks Frances..:)
Firstly, which polyclinic did you guys go to? I know some polyclinics are more crowded than others..lemme know!

Hm..how did your cousin made her baby revert back to breastmilk? I am 'producing' some but he just simply refuses to drink it..I don't want him to starve so I end up giving him formula *sigh*..
