Greeting from Baby Zheng!


DOB: 19 Oct 2008
Weight: 3.5kg
(big horr...? No wonder En En said mummy is Oogway -tortoise...)

Mummy and baby now back to Alor Setar for confinement. Having breastfeeding challenge everyday and mummy is happy coz got abundant of supply (engorgement) but sad as nipple cracked and sore for a few days already. Hoping baby Zheng is able to learn the correct latch on and good suction soon. Was having breastfeeding marathon during the first 3 days in hospital, mummy is almost a zombie.

Wish to thanks tips and advises especially from Jess, Alice, Chanel, Angie, Loh from MMPS and Sandra. Without encouragement from you all, this is really a tough journey!

Congratulations!!! Zheng is so cute...full of character and mischief already on the first day LOL

I had sore nipples too for a while - I used cocoa butter nipple cream (Palmer's) and also went bra-less for them to heal.

If you have time, you can check out my post on breastfeeding position: http://apregnantpause.net/2008/02/19/if-you-have-decided-to-breastfeed/

Swaddling him in a square cloth nappy helped a lot!

Congratulations! Stumbled upon your blog and am so glad that you are breastfeeding your baby. It's a constant challenge but well worth it. Take care. I'm sure you will enjoy that special bonding moment with your `new arrival'. :)
