When you have 4 kids to handle, time really zoomed past without one knowing! Its 5 weeks since little fellow come to this world and we are back at the Paed for his first month check up.
When the nurse weighs him, I'm not surprise at his weight gain..almost 1.5kg given the amount of milk he is drinking! He suckled so much that my breast "muscle" ache!!
And he is still waking up 2 - 3 times for the night feed. Sometimes, I really feel like just expressing the milk and let the maid handle the night feed but I told myself that this is my last baby and I want to enjoy the body contact and everything of direct breastfeeding. Also, someone ever told me this "Why give (expressed) bottle when you can feed directly? Its fresher. And you never know if any nutrients got loss when you warm the milk."
He is a night owl too! He will sleep throughout the day and waking up only at 10pm. His eyes by then will be as BIG as marble and he can last all the way to 1am some nights! Mommy sometimes dozed off chatting with him but he will make noises to ensure I keep up with him!
He still has mild jaundice and Paed said to monitor him for another 2 weeks. If the jaundice persist, we will have to do a blood test to ensure the liver is ok. But at the meantime, no more tanning for him. Now he has to depends on his own body system to "discharge" the jaundice.
