Baby C has been sleeping with me on my king-size bed since the day we were discharged from the hospital on Saturday last week while the confinement lady sleeps on a single-size mattress on the floor. Baby C is quite a good baby but will cry when she soils her diaper with poop or when she’s hungry. On the first night, she pooped almost every hour (only stains of poop on her diaper, but this cleanliness freak baby wants to be cleaned up immediately) and cries for milk quite frequently. I tried to breastfeed her exclusively but she’s crying for milk almost every hour if fully on my milk and this is exhausting me. I think my milk is a tad thin as I have been ordered by the gastroenterologist to go slow on food – preferably no meat, no milk, no rice, no red dates water, no hardcore confinement food, strictly no alcohol, very little ginger in order to rest my guts that have been inflammed. If care is not taken, the inflammed guts could be infected and this could be a serious condition.
The lack of sleep is making me give up breastfeeding exclusively and I ended up asking the CL to mix feed her with formula. Tonight I will ask the CL to sleep in the adjoining room next to my room with Baby C on the baby cot. This way, I hope I can have a restful night.
