I will be back

The title says it all..

I will be on hiatus until dont-know-when.... Confinement lady has left since Tuesday and I take care of Aden myself from then onwards.

Being a new mum is especially a challenge and is a 24 hours job seriously. The most challenging part to me is the midnight milk time, Aden need to be fed like every 2-3 hours so I feel like I dint sleep at all. I miss my beauty sleep actually... So now whenever he sleeps during the day time I'll make sure I catch up some naps as much as possible. Aden can be very fussy at times that even add more stress to me. I have thought of getting a maid or part time helper but on second thought, maid could means trouble.. So I better dont take the risk.

For the past few days I was so stressed out and tired. I feel like I am alone and am going to break down. So I googled alot of child care infor, I joined forums and post questions. Fortunately many mothers out there gave me some valueable comments and encouragement, and with MIL and my mum's helps, I am feeling better eventually. I know if other mums can do it so can I, I just need more times and patience. Many told me it is just a phase and I will get through it soon. Well I guess thats true, nothing is more important than seeing my baby grows healthily under my care (no matter how tiring or hard the journey is).

So, I wont be visiting you guys so often already but I wont give up blogging definetely.
Til then, take care and see you soon! ;)

  4. Just hang on there. Things will certainly be difficult in the beginning but it will get easier as Aden grows. Raising him on your own is the best thing you can give to him. Watching him grow is very rewarding. Enjoy every moment. You can do it! :)

  7. Yes, when baby sleeps you also snooze. It's going to be exhausting taking care a newborn. From 3 months old onwards it should be better. Hang on there dear.

    Don't worry about blogging. :)

  10. Hi Hayley,

    I know how you feel. I shared the hard times with my wife when our son was a baby.

    Be strong! Your baby is precious.

  11. Maid can help around the house, let you rest a little more. Most of the maids are quite efficient in taking care of babies because they are used to taking care of their siblings and also their own babies....

  15. Hayley加油!!!
    我自己照顾bb的第一个星期也几乎崩溃了!但是渐渐的会上手的,开始的两个星期不管白天黑夜我也是bb一睡我就睡,过后就可以白天在看戏了,呵呵!

    晚上我喂配方奶,bb可以睡比较久=p母乳的话bb很快起床。然后尽量拉到半夜12点喂bb,那他就半夜起来一次而已,而且我都喂比较多让他饱饱,过后就是凌晨了。很坏的妈咪,通常人家都是两个月起才这样做的,哈哈。我第三个星期多久这样做了=p

    有什么问题记得我们可以fb那里谈谈^^加油!

  16. Hayley, I wonder how are you recently since the CL is not around and I'm very sure you can do it. Hang on, you can Mei! Baby sleep, we sleep too. This is what we call the stealing nap time! Baby have mood too. Probably after 3mths, baby habit of sleeping, taking afternoon nap and feeding will be almost certain. Gradually you'll know and catch what baby Aden wants and so on.

  17. The key is a routine schedule. Once the routine is set, you'll find yourself more manageable with Aden. Just to let you know, babies are 'routine' creatures :)

    And for certain, you are not alone dear. All mommies go through this phase.

  18. 这种时候家人的帮助及关心很重要!

    慢慢来,总有一天你会习惯的。

    家务方面就只好看开点,不要那么坚持心情会好些的。
