Finally, we are home! His weight on the day of discharge dropped to 2.91kg.
The first day was terrible! The baby cried the whole day and night wanting to be carried and fed. I was like a cow 24 hour!!! No chance to rest at all. As I did not engaged any confinement nanny, I will have to take care of him myself. Glad that I have a good helper to relieve me once in a while. But I was left to handle him throughout the long night. Hubby woke up once in a while to give me some morale support though. However, as previous, he dared not carry the baby yet.
I only got the chance to sleep at about 6am in the morning. I couldn't take it any more and pass the baby to my helper. Instructed her to place the baby under the sun from 9am to 9.30am as he had mild jaundice. Guessed little boy tired himself too crying the whole night and he slept throughout the "sun-tanning".
The whole day, helper took over him so that I can catch some sleep. She did the cooking for me while I breastfeed him. Guessed he must have not used to the surrounding and temperature of our house on the home-coming day, thus the non-stop crying.
But today, he was better. He just drink and slept. No more crying at night too. He is a fast drinker too. He was satisfied within 15 mintues to half an hour on the breast and goes to sleep.
And I had already settled into the new routine. Morning will be my rest time, Afternoon time was spending coaching the 2 girls on their work. Late afternoon, have an hour of nap. Evening time was 100% for Nicholas.
