All About the Baby

I take back everything I said about coping w/out sleep. I was totally konked out after just one week of looking after him full-time. He's been getting pretty hyper recently and I'm wondering whether my [excessive] drinking of coke is the reason for this since I'm breastfeeding him. Am a coke addict and had stopped drinking that much of it since the pregnancy. Just started doing so recently after I passed the 1mth confinement...Hubby was very nice & understanding this weekend, taking care of Aidan and letting me sleep as much as possible.

Being a mom of a newborne can be a scary thing. I constantly wonder whether I'm doing things wrongly and am afraid that I may screw up somehow due to my ignorance. I get even more conflicted when people [especially if it's ur mom] tells me that what I'm doing is wrong and bad for the baby but when I do my 'research' and check the internet or ask about it in a parenting forum page, I get the assurance that I'm doing the right thing. But it's not that I'm totally enveloped by this paranoia..and I doubt I'm suffering from any post-natal depression. I do love being a mom and truly enjoy the company of Aidan..and I think I'm darn fortunate to have an understanding & loving hubby who is totally hands-on in the caring of our baby :)

I mean I only need to go back to camp once in 5 days? and lessons are only at night.. the day time I'm sOooOOo free and no one is around coz everyone is either in school, work or camp....that is why i'm sooo damn bored!

Aiyo, he is really so...cute in that gym. His cheek is so chubby, just like Chloe. You are doing very well, he grows so much.

I fully understand how you feel, hoping he would sleep more and wish he eats well. With YC so supportive, I think you would not go into post-natal depression. Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you'll start having positive results. Diff people has diff opinion. So you can choose not to listen. There is no good or bad in handling a baby. It's how much you believe. Most importantly, trust yourself. You sure can one lah!

Re:
Heh..yeah, Aidan is getting chubbier by the day. YC is actually worried that he may get fat but I think it's okay for babies to be chubby lor :)

Thanks for ur support! Will also constantly check with u if I'm really unsure of myself since u have more experience than me..

Can you take one photo of Aidan looking like Poka? Hehehehe. I think it can be done! :) In my mind Aidan is still this super guai baby, deceptive little fellow :P

By the way I found some girl auctioning the whole 2 inch set of Ci Boy Deris for one hundred bucks cheaper than Pixtoon!! Gonna buy it after CNY hehehe. If you come during CNY period (that is if the proposed bai nian thing really takes off, and if you wanna bring Aidan to collect ang pao hehe - must get from Derek! He "playing cheat"!!), I may be able to show you ALL my Ci Boys stuff. Hur hur hur.

Re:
The only time i see him looking remotely like Poka is when he is taking a crap..that's when he look really constipated~
Yeah, Aidan bluffed most of the people with his 'guai' behavior during the manyue *sob*..

Eh..u sure the Ci Boy set will still b ard after CNY? U waiting to get all ur angpows ah? Err..what proposed pai nian thingy?
