How to prevent the arrival of premature baby? progesterone

leave a comment »

I wrote this post few months ago.

In the 34th week, I experienced pain while walking and went to ob-gyn to do check-up.
My condition has 50% risk of delivering premature baby.
In the 35th week, I was prescribed progesterone which made me so drowsy.
I remembered how I dropped the pen I was holding half-an-hour after taking progesterone.
Then I did not feel my baby moving too, perhaps he suffered from the drowsiness as well?
As a rule of thumb, if I feel 5 baby’s movements every 2 hours, it should be ok. My ob-gyn has more lenient rule, at least 12 baby’s movements per day.

Though progesterone caused my drowsiness, progesterone helps to prevent premature baby, so it is ok to endure the short term discomfort.
The financial cost of having premature baby is large, amounting to ~$1,000 per day of hospitalization until the baby is mature.

Dear baby, welcome to the highly competitive world! Being creative is better than being competitive

leave a comment »

Dear baby

Do you know that there are courses out there that keep on telling Mommy “teach your baby or toddler [insert any of these: to Read / Math / Music]”? To accelerate the rat race, the advertisement goes “You can start when your baby is 3 months old.”

Yes, Mommy started to teach you things that Mommy thinks as necessary, such as praying, sign language, idioms, texture exercise, mirror exercise to increase self-worth / self-love and awareness of body parts, vowel exercise. You responded by happily producing sounds that Mommy still does not understand: baby language.

When Mommy told a friend, he said that Mommy is highly . competitive. However, Mommy thinks that it is good & essential to introduce you the joy of learning early in life. Since you received a lot of (second-hand) toys and was given a few new toys, Mommy will not buy you any toys. We are a frugal family and Mommy wants to save for more important things for your, e.g. healthy fruits & vegetable. However, Mommy shares with you the joy of our world through play in the nature (including parks / beaches / hills / mountains / lakes) enforced with powerpoint slides to help you remember the words, beautiful books, shopping groceries in the supermarkets / markets (Yes, the markets are your playground).

Sometimes, Mommy wonders if Mommy if a competitive person. Recently, Mommy learned from Uncle W that being creative is better than being competitive; and Mommy thinks that Mommy is a creative, instead of a competitive person. Do you know what are the differences between being competitive and being creative? Mommy will write another post in the near future.

Since you are my dearest, Mommy aspires to gives you only the Best that Mommy can afford to nurture creativity, independence, and happy learning in you since your early days.

In fact, Mommy acknowledges that Mommy learned and shared a lot to you through voice notes about many lifelong skills while being pregnant with you. That perhaps explains why you are a happy baby, as observed by Aunt Flower who helped to care for you when Mommy was too weak to carry you around.

Mommy wants you to grow in a happy, healthy, harmonious baby, toddler, child, and then adult. They said it takes 10 years to grow a tree, 100 years to nurture a human being (十年树木,百年树人).

Mommy happily takes on this challenge. Mommy feels that while nurturing you, Mommy also benefits because Mommy has a chance to learn new things that Mommy did not learn as a kid, and re-learn beautiful things that Mommy has experience.

May your life be abundant with joy, happiness and generosity.

Love,
Mommy

How to soothe baby to sleep? An understanding of light sleep vs deep sleep ; 4+6 essential tips

leave a comment »

What are the differences between light & deep sleep?
LIGHT SLEEP:
aka REM (rapid eye movement),
our brains wake up,
dream and stir, turn over,
adjust the covers without fully awakening.
Babies have twice as much active, or lighter, sleep as adults.
Light sleep helps the brain develop because the brain doesn’t rest during REM sleep.
During REM sleep the body increases its manufacture of certain nerve proteins, the building blocks of the brain.

DEEP SLEEP:
quiet sleep,
mind and body are quietest,
muscles are loose.

About dreaming while sleeping:
Baby has more dream sleep than adult.
I find it funny when my first son chuckled in his sleep, his tummy vibrating on me and his mouth making a large grin.

How to induce babies to sleep?
1. gentle rock.
2. nurse / breastfeed.
3. sing lullabies.
4. ensure that babies are not too hot.

Blueroselady: I personally find that latching my first son is the most effective,
possibly because it quenches thirst and relieves hunger,
gives warmth and secured feeling through close body contact.

Since my spouse has no breasts,
he sings the soothing Ave Maria and it works.

More modern version:

Unlike adults who can usually go directly into the state of deep sleep,
infants in the early months enter sleep through an initial period of light sleep.
After 20 minutes or more they gradually enter deep sleep,
from which they are not so easily aroused.

Babies have shorter sleep cycles than adults.
About an hour after a baby goes to sleep,
he begins to squirm,
he tosses a bit,
his eyelids flutter,
his face muscles grimace,
he breathes irregularly, and
his muscles tighten.
He is reentering the phase of light sleep.
The time of moving from deep to light sleep is a vulnerable period during which many babies will awaken if any upsetting or uncomfortable stimulus,
such as hunger, occurs.

SOLUTION:
When your baby enters light sleep,
and you are sure that baby is not hungry / breathless,
1. do not move him e.g. from your lap to his cot within the 1st 20 minutes,
2. lay a comforting hand on your baby’s back,
3. hold his hand,
4. sing a soothing lullaby,
5. play soothing music / pre-recorded voices of your singing / saying prayers,
6. be there next to baby if he is in your bed (beware of the risk of pressing into him);
you can help him get through this light sleep period without waking.

Do not force your babies to sleep deep for too long.
Why?
“Nightwaking has survival benefits.
Tiny babies have tiny tummies,
mother’s milk is digested very rapidly.
If a baby’s stimulus for hunger could not easily arouse her,
this would not be good for baby’s survival.
If baby’s nose was stuffed and she could not breathe,
or was cold and needed warmth,
and her sleep state was so deep that she could not communicate her needs,
her survival would be jeopardized.”

But, here is a good news for tired parents:
“From three to six months, most babies begin to settle.
They are awake for longer stretches during the day and some may sleep five-hour stretches at night.
Between three to six months, expect one or two nightwakings.”

A piece of for parents:
“Remember that your baby’s sleep habits are more a reflection of your baby’s temperament rather than your style of nighttime parenting.
And keep in mind that other parents usually exaggerate how long their baby sleeps,
as if this were a badge of good parenting, which it isn’t.
It’s not your fault baby wakes up.”

Personal note:
When our first son was 2 months old,
he loves to wake up at night and needs someone to chat with him.
Oh my goodness!

Recipe of home-cooked puree for baby : 12 fruit puree + 7 vegetable puree

with one comment

If I have to work every single day of weekdays,
for each weekend,
I plan to prepare 1-2 fruit puree & 1-2 vegetable puree.
Then,
I feed few portions to my baby immediately,
and freeze the rest.

My preferred puree:
must be nutritious.
must be easy & quick to prepare.

Follow the 4 day wait rule when introducing a new food to baby – offer your baby the same new food for 4 days to test for allergies to that food.
This applies even when you are making homemade baby food. Never introduce more than 1 new food at a time when first beginning solid foods.

For babies of 6-8 months, steam the fruit if possible.
Why? for easier digestion.
Note: Do not cook banana, avocado.

To thicken puree, add CEREAL.
To thin puree, add BREAST MILK / formula milk / water.

Steam first then blend, instead of blend first then steam.
Cook the food, let it cool a bit, toss it into a blender or food processor and puree away.

General directions
:
# PEEL, core and CUT hard fruit (e.g. apple, pear) into slices/chunks
# STEAMing is better than boiling. Steam for 5-10 minutes / until soft. Alternatively, you can bake http://wholesomebabyfood.momtastic.com/bakebabyfruits.htm
or blanch. I prefer steaming.
# MASH : use blender.
For soft food, e.g. banana / avocado / kiwi, use fork to mash.

How to buy pumpkins?
Look for smaller pumpkins with few blemishes that are heavy & has intact stem. Avoid pumpkins that have soft spots.

My first son tried pumpkin puree when he turned 8 months old and loved it.

Here are vegetable puree that I carefully choose for my baby:

@~@ ASPARAGUS PUREE
1. remove the woody stems by bending each spear until it snaps – it should snap at the point where the fresh green tip ends and the tougher part begins.
2. steam
3. mash

Freeze well.

Minerals: Potassium, Sodium, Selenium, Phosphorous, Iron, Magnesium, Calcium
wash, then boil, steam or microwave the florets.
Do not feed the stems because they give some babies gas!
Freezes well but may be watery when thawed – best frozen in pieces.

@~@ CARROT PUREE
Vitamins: A (19,152 IU), C, Folate
Minerals: Potassium, Sodium, Phosphorous, Iron, Magnesium, Calcium
Choose large, older carrots – these are actually richer in nutrients than baby carrots.
Freeze well.
TIPS: Do not reserve any left over water to use for thinning out the carrots if baby is under 8 months old as Nitrates may seep into the cooking water.

@~@ POTATO PUREE
Method 1 : peel then boil then mash with fork.
Method 2 : bake then mash with fork.

@~@ SPINACH PUREE
Tips: Do not use cooking water to puree.
Spinach puree MUST be immediately eaten, frozen or stored in the refrigerator. Studies done on spinach and nitrates in particular have shown that with improper storage and preparation, the nitrate levels may actually increase.

@~@ SWEET POTATO PUREE
Vitamins: A (24,877 mg ), C, Folate
Minerals: Potassium, Sodium, Selenium, Phosphorous, Magnesium, Calcium
Bake is more efficient.
can also steam in cubes.
Freeze well.

Although I am not anti ready-made puree,
I may buy them and feed my baby them,
especially for traveling
when I have little / no access to warmer,
but I prefer to prepare home-made puree,
because it is fresher and has less artificial.

Blended brown rice / white rice +  breast milk / formula + any of / combination of : ikan bilis / anchovies + ginseng + lotus seed + prune.
Since these require daily preparation,
if I really have no time in the future as I must go out to earn $ for our family,
I may consider any of these :
# Nestle Cerelac.
# Moon Rabbit Brand Si Sen Brown Rice Powder.


How to freeze home-made puree?

# Let the steamed puree cool down first before freezing.

# Use ice-cube trays with lids.
I think the ice cube tray with lid is a good investment,
we can use it to make fruit puree cubes to be added to yoghurt. To retain the freshness, some people use cling film to go round the ice cube trays to seal out odors (especially if you keep uncooked meat in the freezer); but I do not prefer this method because the plastic may stick to the puree.

# Use Avent cups. Fill in < 100 ml, so we can top up with cereal / breast milk / formula / water. For feeding, can warm the cups with bottle warmer.

# Use cleaned glass bottles* from EYS Chicken Essence / bird nest.

Of course, if I can afford the time to prepare puree daily, I no need to freeze.
I can eat the remaining puree that my baby cannot finish daily.

*Glass that is not specifically manufactured for freezing has the unfortunate ability to crack, leave behind tiny, microscopic shards and fragments and also is prone to bursting.
Baby food jars (e.g. Gerber, Heinz) are not manufactured for freezing or for extreme heating.

How long can frozen baby puree last?
3 months just like breast milk.
But consuming within 1 month is the best for the sake of nutrient retention.

Consider also baby led weaning.

Lyrics : Favorite lullabies to soothe baby to sleep

with one comment

ITSY-BITSY SPIDER

The itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the water spout
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain
And the itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the spout again

HUSH, LITTLE BABY

Hush, little baby, don’t say a word.
Papa’s gonna buy you a mockingbird

And if that mockingbird won’t sing,
Papa’s gonna buy you a diamond ring

And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Papa’s gonna buy you a looking glass

And if that looking glass gets broke,
Papa’s gonna buy you a billy goat

And if that billy goat won’t pull,
Papa’s gonna buy you a cart and bull

And if that cart and bull turn over,
Papa’s gonna buy you a dog named Rover

And if that dog named Rover won’t bark
Papa’s gonna buy you a horse and cart

And if that horse and cart fall down,
You’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town.

TWINKLE, TWINKLE, LITTLE STAR

Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are

BRAHMS’ LULLABY (LULLABY AND GOOD NIGHT)

ROCK-A-BYE BABY

GOLDEN SLUMBERS

DAY IS DONE

LITTLE BOY BLUE

SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW : A lover introduced this song to me & I love the song being sung by the Hawaiian guy.

TOORA, LOORA, LOORA

ALL THE PRETTY HORSES : I love this song.

Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry,
Go to sleep my little baby.
When you wake you shall have
All the pretty little horses.
Black and bays, dapples, grays,
All the pretty little horses.
Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry,
Go to sleep my little baby.
Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry,
Go to sleep my little baby.
When you wake you shall have
All the pretty little horses.

AMAZING GRACE : This song always reminds me on a cold night inside a warm room with Christian friends watching the movie “Amazing Grace” in UK.

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now am found
Was blind but now I see

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come
‘Tis grace hath brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home

How sweet the name of Jesus sounds
In a believer’s ear
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds
And drives away his fear

Must Jesus bear the cross alone
And all the world go free?
No, there’s a cross for ev’ryone
And there’s a cross for me

ARE YOU SLEEPING? (FRÈRE JACQUES)

OH MY DARLING CLEMENTINE

In a cavern, in a canyon
Excavating for a mine
Lived a miner, forty-niner
And his daughter, Clementine

Oh, my darling, oh, my darling
Oh, my darling Clementine
You are lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine

Light she was and like a fairy
And her shoes were number nine
Herring boxes without topses
Sandals were for Clementine

Oh, my darling, oh, my darling
Oh, my darling Clementine
You are lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine

Drove she ducklings to the water
Every morning just at nine
Hit her foot against a splinter
Fell into the foaming brine

Oh, my darling, oh, my darling
Oh, my darling Clementine
You are lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine

Ruby lips above the water
Blowing bubbles soft and fine
But alas, I was no swimmer
So I lost my Clementine

Oh, my darling, oh, my darling
Oh, my darling Clementine
You are lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine

Then the miner, forty-niner
Soon began to peak and pine
Thought he oughta join his daughter
Now he’s with his Clementine

Oh, my darling, oh, my darling
Oh, my darling Clementine
You are lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine

There’s a churchyard on the hillside
Where the flowers grow and twine
There grow roses, ‘mongst the posies
Fertilized by Clementine

Oh, my darling, oh, my darling
Oh, my darling Clementine
You are lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine

In my dreams she still doth haunt me
Robed in garlands soaked in brine
Though in life I used to hug her
Now she’s dead, I draw the line

Oh, my darling, oh, my darling
Oh, my darling Clementine
You are lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine

Now you scouts may learn the moral
Of this little tale of mine
Artificial respiration
Would have saved my Clementine

Oh, my darling, oh, my darling
Oh, my darling Clementine
You are lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine

How I missed her, how I missed her
How I missed my Clementine
Till I kissed her little sister
And forgot my Clementine

Oh, my darling, oh, my darling
Oh, my darling Clementine
You are lost and gone forever
Dreadful sorry, Clementine

How to teach baby to communicate faster? 1. Sign language

leave a comment »

Hello readers!
你好!

I used to serve as a volunteer who teach hearing disabled children maths. It happened that the skill is also useful for mothers and babies, especially if babies cannot talk so well yet.

Being able to communicate is an essential form of survival skill and can make babies HAPPY.

A testimonial from Bennett & Melissa Z., CA: “Sarah learned her first 10 signs at six month and it made our lives much easier. Instead of screaming, she could tell us when she was hungry, thirsty, or tired. She learned another 50 signs by nine months and that was a blast. Now she is talking much earlier than the other children in her preschool and we think it is because of her signing.”

I learned how to sign Dad, Mom, Eat, Milk from www.babysignlanguage.com/basics/#first_five_signs
Dad / Daddy / 爸爸
Mom / Mommy / 妈妈
Milk / 母奶

WORDs that I think as important to learn to sign for:
pain / HURT
ITCH / 痒

hungry : use MILK / EAT sign.

I need DIAPER change / though I usually can smell & hear baby farting!

I need burping : try to use the sign for WIND, inspired from 肚子进风.

I am COLD / HOT.

I need HUG 抱抱.
Dually useful to mothers, the sign for HUG is useful to stop breast milk from leaking.

MORE : for I am still hungry
ALL DONE / finished : for I am full (do not over feed me).

Please
Sorry
Thank you
It is almost like you are blowing a kiss out, to thank the person – but the sign is a bit lower.
The thank you sign is also a great way to remind older kids to be polite when out in public without being overbearing or embarrassing them.

Yes
Think of the lucky cat (招财猫).
No
Seriously, no is a wonderful way for a baby to avoid frustration by enabling them to communicate when they object to something. You can teach no whenever you ask questions to give your baby an option. Say you offer your baby their pacifier and she does not take it. You can then say, “No – you don’t want the pacifier.”

Parents can also name the emotions that babies experience.
e.g.
HAPPY
Sad : The sad sign looks like you are making tears fall down your face. Take both hands with fingers outstretched, and pull them from above your eyes down to about chest level.

Angry : Teaching more complex emotions signs like angry is a for more advanced babies. It is a useful sign, because it helps you identify and acknowledge an emotion that a child is feeling.

Sleep : To sign sleep, start with fingers extended and spread apart. Beginning with your hand over your face, move your fingers down to end with your hand below your chin and your fingers touching your thumb.

Bed

More resources:
# Wordsbythehandful
# I also love the illustrated books by Mimi Brian Vance, a U.S. Diplomat for nearly a decade.
Hopefully, your and my babies learn to be diplomatic as well!

Besides sign language, how to promote speech development in our children?
2. Talk to them until we are blue in the face.
3. Read aloud to them from books (e.g. story books, poems, idioms).
4. Sing to and with them.
5. Engage with them in conversations, even when they aren’t yet talking.
6. Respond when they try to get your attention. My first son cries when he is ignored, while he was 2 months old, he wants a chatting mate in the middle of night, a challenging baby!
7. Reward their efforts.
8. I also use a pre-recorded voicenotes / lectures / prayers.

I started teaching my baby sign language when he is 1 month plus.
It is never too early to learn.
Bye-bye & Good luck!

Breastfeeding is the new trend but not entirely free

leave a comment »

When I was visiting Copenhagen,
the capital of Denmark,
I was inspired by how a mother breastfed her baby publicly.

If I were to do it in Singapore,
people will probably stare at me.

Therefore,
I only go to shopping center with nursing room(s).
I endure swelling of breast if I have to go some places without nursing room(s).
Yes, lactating mothers can use a cloth cover,
but I dislike the potential reduced oxygen for my baby.

According to http://singaporemotherhood.com/articles/2013/02/making-sense-of-formula-milk/
breastfeeding has increased from 54% – 75% in the last 5 years.

The article mentions that breast milk is FREE.
In my humble opinion,
breast milk is not entirely free.
To provide babies with rich nutrients and antibodies
(in order to protect babies from illnesses like diarrhoea,
lower respiratory infections,
ear infections),
lactating mothers have to eat well.

Lactating mothers may be depleted of calcium if they do not have sufficient intake of calcium from e.g. milk.
To be safe, we can take calcium supplement.

Lactating mothers must also eat a balanced diet.

Diverse food (e.g. Chinese, Indian, Malay, Italian, French, Japanese, Korean food) so babies will grow up liking the worldwide food.

What if breast milk is not enough?
Do not feel bad about supplementing breast milk with formula.
