Chloe Isabelle – 5 months

  Look see! Lil’ miss turned 5 months and we didn’t have any cake to celebrate. I promise to make one for her 6th month when she starts solid food.     V is having more fun with her sister now that he is getting a reaction when he does something. Chloe likes her brother so much that she laughs at all the silly things V does. We are collecting points as who make her laugh the most and V is a sure winner.   Dad put up her playpen where she stays in the morning while I do some chores, sometimes I find her asleep with one toy in each hand. Yes she tends to grab everything she can reach and puts it in her mouth, which also means I can no longer wear earrings I almost lost one at the mall. She is demanding more attention from us entering 5 months. Protests when her dad holds the ipad or phone while carrying her. When she wakes up in her cot oh dear she …

Chloe Isabelle – 4 months old

Oh October what a busy month that I almost forgot to post that our Chloe turned 4 months old. Time is flying fast but each day we are full of joy. Chloe is such a happy baby that just lights up a gloomy day! His Kuya V loves to cheer her whenever she tries to roll to her tummy and back. Although she would sometimes shower her brother with vomit kisses he just adores and love her to bits.     We have been attending a baby massage class and she just loves every stroke. It’s also our first mom-baby group activity, there’s just some joy when you are around babies and listening to stories of other Mum assures one that we are doing the best thing we can for our babies.     At four months old: Weighs 6.2 kgs and is 63.5 cm long Received her 2nd dose of DTap, PCV, and Rotavirus vaccines Manages to sleep on her own (I put her down on the crib half awake). Sleeps on her back …

Chloe’s Tummy Roll

A  baby milestone happened today. While I was preparing her clothes and water for bath. I came back with a sight  of our little princess on her tummy. Shrieked with joy and clap my hands, she laughed along with me. I rolled her back with a camera on my hand and waited for her to do it again. She just stared at me as if saying “What’s the big deal Mum?!”

Our Princess you’re growing up fast. You have rewarded Mommy with 3-4 hours of sleep at night and unlike your Kuya you sleep in your crib. Swaddling helped you sleep from my arms to crib and you can even sooth yourself to sleep.  For morning naps you either sleep on your bouncer our flat on your tummy. Just recently you discovered your hands and feet. You would stare at them cute fingers and laugh when you get to lift your feet up. Daddy is having fun watching you lift your head while you hold on to his fingers.

to swaddle or not?

  Sleep has been a main concern when I gave birth to Chloe. Our initial plan was to transfer V to a bed of his own so baby can sleep with me in bed (as I did with V before) but that didn’t happen. On our first week at home, Chloe slept in her crib but she would wake up every 30 minutes and with my C-Section it was hard for me to stand-up and get her in and out. With lack of sleep and discomfort on the surgery I decided to co-sleep with her in bed with me. I would get 3 to 4 hrs of sleep when she’s beside me and easier to breast feed her at night as well. One scary night came when I fell into a deep sleep and I woke up to a crying baby beside me with a pillow on covering her! Scared the life of me that I didn’t get any sleep that night. I decided the following night to let her sleep in the crib . …

Chloe Isabelle is 2 months

We welcomed baby Chloe’s 2nd month with a visit to her Pedia for her scheduled vaccines. She had 3, one injection in each thigh and the last one taken orally. I was breastfeeding her during the vaccination hoping she won’t feel the pain but boy did she cry while looking at me as if saying “It hurts mama.” Days before her baby wellness check we had vomiting incident of more than a cup full which made me worry. According to her Pedia as long as she doesn’t get any fever her spitting out after feed or during burp time is normal and even commented that she could be overfed. I was advised to feed her every 3 hours and burp her really well. Kuya V was quite sad that I didn’t bake any cake for Chloe’s 2nd month. The reason why we didn’t have any cake was fever, baby girl had fever for 2 days after her vaccine and she demanded to always be carried and won’t even settle even when I carry her in …

Baby wearing: The BabaSling

We are slowly discovering the joys of baby wearing. I had a chance to wear Vierte when he was about 3 months old and became a must have whenever we went out since he didn’t like to stay in the stroller. For V I used the baby pouch and ring sling. Before Chloe was born I was already searching for the best carrier available and was already interested in buying the Moby Wrap and BabaSling. Just before we were about to purchase either a surprise came when Grace and her daughter Pristine came to visit bearing gifts and one of them is a BabaSling.     I’ve been watching TheBabaSlings how to videos and been reading the instructions for days and finally managed to wear Chloe comfortably in the sling, even managed to breast feed her in it.   Worn her twice while we were in the mall and we’ve got a few stares and praises on how cute she is inside, once I heard someone commenting that the baby might be having a hard time …

Chloe Isabelle is 1 month

Chloe is a month old! C and I have been talking about the night we went to the hospital and if it weren’t for the 2 emergency CS who came after us Chloe should have been born on the 24th. All those seem just like it happened yesterday. During our hospital stay we struggled with breastfeeding that I almost resorted to formula good thing the nurses around me was encouraging that I was feeding her just fine. Here we are a month after happy to say that I have established a good  breast milk supply. Oh sleep..well I’m lucky if I get a good 3 hours and that only happens if she sleeps beside me in bed with her Kuya Vierte. The first week we came home I let her sleep in the crib but that didn’t work for us, I kept checking if she was ok and by the time I’m sure that she is breathing well and I’m about to sleep Chloe wakes up hungry. In the morning though she sleeps long hours …
