We survived 1 week!

Seriously boobs, 130 mls in 10 mins? You've got to slow down.

I'm just pumping to relieve engorgement and after Isaiah latches. I can't deal with the knobs and lumps and leaks.

Thank you for producing this round boobs.

Later today, my first session of post-natal massage will commence.

Can't wait to ask the masseur to unblock my boobs.

Tummy time today.

My mom caught him turning his head.

#paucheeks is #1weekold today.


Korkor needs to help out in the photo taking too.

Wanted to standardize the backdrop; but he looks really cannot make it here.

So grumpy. Maybe shall take again later.

How about this photo? As the milestone prototype.

Too bad he's sleeping here.

Gangster hands over boob pose. #paucheecks post milk.

I'm trying to direct latch as much as possible without pumping because I don't want to over stimulate the breast which will cause over supply i.e: vicious cycle of engorgement and lumps.

But seems like didi is very contended with the amount he gets by direct latching. And yet my tanks is not completely empty especially at night.

No choice, have to pump. 😭

This other sleeping child has been quite a handful.

He doesn't actively show that he is jealous of didi, in fact he is too affectionate to him.

But we notice he doesn't want to listen to us much anymore. He also purposely "defies" us and always asking for things he knows he cannot have.

How to overcome this ah?

Thanks ladies, those comments were very helpful.

Isaac is behaving exactly like you said your kids are doing.

I also thought because my mom is here, he was acting out. Just as I suspected, he is a little jealous of didi but doesn't know how to show it.

So I sat down and talk to him just now.

πŸ‘©πŸ» Isaac, y r u acting like that? How come don't wan to listen to us? Don't want to go school and keep scolding everybody?

πŸ‘ΌπŸ» I want didi I want to hug him and kiss him (standard response n also avoiding the question)

πŸ‘©πŸ» Is it because you are jealous?

πŸ‘ΌπŸ» (looks at me with puppy dog eyes and in a small voice) yes.

πŸ‘©πŸ» does your heart feel painful? Pain pain here? (Points to his heart)

πŸ‘ΌπŸ» yes (cracking voice)

πŸ‘©πŸ» but you know I still love you what. I got kiss and hug you and say you're a very helpful korkor.

πŸ‘ΌπŸ» I know (to the I love you) but I still want to carry didi etc etc

πŸ‘©πŸ» no need to jealous one. I'm still here. If u jealous also you cannot scold ppl etc. okay??

πŸ‘ΌπŸ» okay

Then we hug and kiss but I don't really know if that was addressing the tantrum problems.

Will see how it goes as the day goes by.

Nvm mummy, don't emo. Look at the camera and smile!
