Bottlefeeding Adam

Ever since we moved back to our house Adam’s been adapting really well. He’s much less moody, and seemed to be more relaxed. He loves sleeping in our bed. In the beginning we tried letting him sleep in his own cot but he hates being alone by himself. As soon as I put him in the middle between the two of us, immediately he becomes relaxed and fall asleep on his own. So takde lagila sesi angkat berat, joget2, nyanyi2, and passing baton for Mommy and Daddy mlm2. Whenever it’s feeding time, I’ll hear him stirring so I’ll just breastfeed him lying down and then we’ll both drift back off to sleep. Adam pun pandai bila lapar je buat bunyi then terus pusing kepala n badan mengadap Mommy, dah ready nak minum. He doesn’t mind bathing too, nowadays. Dia senyap je tak nangis2 dah.

The only trouble I’m having is trying to give him a bottle. I’m trying to train him to feed from a bottle because I’m going back to work soon. I started by giving him one bottle a day and increase it to two, three bottled expressed breast milk a day, during the daytime so that he’ll get used to it by the time I get to work. The problem is, he knows the real thing is right there! I would sit down holding him in my arms. He would make that cute little suckling noise telling me he’s hungry. He’d be smiling, expecting to be fed soon. I put the bottle in his mouth and then…uwaaaaa!!! He would look at me dgn muka confused, why is Mommy shoving this rubbery thing in my mouth! I stop and then try again, but as soon as he saw the bottle coming towards him he start to scream, and pushed the bottle with both his hands and his tongue. Tapi I think he’s still hungry sbb bila dia calm down dia make that suckling noise again and sometimes dia hisap jari or my clothes. After a few attempts dapatla jugak dia minum dlm 1-2oz. Lps tu dia tanak langsung dah. I pun pujuk2 dia then dia tido. Sometimes dia moody terus until the next feeding…sian Adam..

Tapi if his daddy feed him, bila he comes home for lunch, elok pulak laju je dia habis satu bottle. Itupun I need to jauh sikit from his view. If he sees me, mula la dia jeling je. I hope nanti bila babysitter dia yg bagi bottle bolehla dia minum habis mcm bila Daddy bagi. Kalau tak sian anak Mummy lapar..

I’m trying to look at it in the positive way. Him refusing the bottle when I feed him means that he knows me already and definitely prefers me than the bottle. He loves me =) But it breaks my heart to see him eating less because he refuse to feed from a bottle. Fortunately ptg/mlm dia compensate balik dgn minum byk2 frequently.

Adam, Mummy’s really sorry. I wish I could breastfeed you fulltime. But Mummy has to go to work…I’m so sorry….I promise i'll breastfeed you all night and weekends ok many times as you wish!

Adam's 1 month check up

On Monday Adam had his first check up. In the morning we woke up early to get ready. Agak kelam kabut jugak sbb yelah this is our first family “outing”. This is also Adam’s first time in his carseat. Masa mula2 masuk dlm carrier tu, dia menangis meraung2. Risau gak dgr rase nak angkat kuar je dia. But we want him to get used to the carseat for his safety so terpaksa biar dia nangis. Alhamdulillah sekejap je Adam nangis2, lepas the car dah start jalan..dia jadi syok pulak duduk dalam carseat tu. Senyap je sambil mata melilau tgk keliling. Tapi yang kelakarnya bila kereta stop kat traffic light ke, Adam tak suka and mula buat muka sedih. Bila kereta jalan balik, dia pun happy balik. Lama2 dia khayal sampai tertido dlm tu..hehe..Adam..Adam…

Sampai hospital we went to Dr Kumari’s clinic. Adam ukur berat. Guess how much he weighs now? 4 kg! tak sangka Adam dah besar. Dr Kumari ckp very good weightgain, pls continue breastfeeding. Lepas tu Dr examined him and gave him his jab. Kesian Adam, kene inject dekat kaki. Menjerit2 dia..

We asked Dr Kumari about rashes since Adam had some rashes on his face and body. She said rashes Adam biasa2 je, no need for special cream or anything, Cuma letak baby lotion je. Adam ada jugak putih2 kat lidah. She examined his tongue and she said that’s only because of milk. All we need to do is mix a pinch of baking powder with water and wipe his tongue with a clean cloth. Basically she said Adam looks healthy, alhamdulillah. She gave us colic drops and ubat demam in case Adam develops fever because of the jab. Most likely he won’t need it.

Lps habis check up, we went to Jusco for lunch. Mummy yg over excited sgt sbb lama giler dah tak keluar rumah. Dgn selambenye mkn Pizza Hut! Huhu…bestnye…nyum2..

Beza betul keluar rumah time berdua and kluar bertiga. Kene prepare awal, kene bawak beg Adam, carseat Adam, stroller Adam. Kene cari selit masa/cari tmpt nak breastfeed Adam. Tapi….best gile la jalan bawak Adam. Mummy and Daddy tak abis2 snap pictures. He’s so well behaved! Alhamdulillah..macam ni selalu la kite kuar jalan2 kan Adam…
Adam happy dalam Maxicosi dia

Adam nangis lps kene jab..sian dia..

Adam @ 4 weeks

Skejap je Adam dah 4 weeks old. Next week dia ade appointment dgn doktor. Adam dah semakin tembam skarang..activity utama Adam tido..biasanya dia tido mcm biasa je..telentang..tapi kadang2 ada posisi2 lain yg lebih menarik..meh kite tgk fashion2 tido Adam..

Yang ni aksi tido paling weird so far. Tido duduk. Adam masa ni tgh moody. I tried holding him in different positions to calm him down. Tgh i pegang dia duduk mcm ni, tibe2 je dia lelap :)

Tgk tu bukan main sedap dia tido

ni pulak dia tido mengereng. pandai je dia pusing badan dia

Ini favourite position dia. Telangkup esp atas badan Mummy or Daddy

Yang ni bukan aksi tido tapi aksi Adam kene mandi. Meraung2 mcmla kene dera..isk3..sian dia tak suka mandi...hehe..
