Baby diary – week 2

#homedays #confinement #countingdowntofullmonth #butagainnot because I want to fully appreciate this little baby face more and cuddle him more (though I don’t feel this way at night or when I have muscle aches).

We’ve been home for a couple of weeks now. Breastfeeding/nursing is still a journey that needs much practice and adjustment as baby is a human who is constantly changing too. What worked for one day doesn’t always work the next. When you think that you’ve had a tough night, the next one is tougher and you redefine “tough night”. It’s really a constant learning journey with this baby. Dealing with oversupply and gassy baby lately. I still don’t know how to calm him down well. Baby H doesn’t seem to calm down when I talk, sing, carry, and hold him close? Oh well, like they said, every baby is different so what works for most babies might not work for him, but overall, reading more information from books and online have been slowly helping me understand more about why baby has certain behaviours and how to troubleshoot some problems. #trialanderror

He’s been making lots of “growing” sounds this week, like he’s growing longer? “dan duai” in Foochow. His long hiccups continue. His impatient crying when he pulls out from a good latch is so immediate and frantic (aigoo, this baby ah). He sleeps and calms down really well with eyes wide open and paying attention when Wai po carries him. Baba N continues to carry H a lot when he’s back from work and H likes the secure feeling when held by daddy too.
