Baby’s 1 month old!

So! Baby is a month old already! Time really flies! There was SO much to learn in such a short period of time and it has been a little challenging talking care of a newborn.

The first 2 weeks went by without any issue.  But in the 3rd and 4th week, he started having reflux and gas issues.  We had some frantic trips to the 24 hours clinic and the pedi but it was solvable – new parents’ jitters I suppose. 

The poor kid was really suffering from the reflux issue and we are trying every possible way to give him relief. It is really worrying and stressful when the baby cries ams nothing you do soothes or calms them.  

There’s a baby fair coming up and unlike the previous times  (twice) I went while I was pregnant, I feel like I don’t have to be restrained or feel guilty or scared about buying ‘too much’. Now as the wipes and diapers and other stuff are fast depleting, I’ll have to restock on those supplies when these fairs come around. 

I bought the mamaroo swing by 4moms. My darling baby likes it so I’m gonna get another one to station at my house (we are still staying over at my parents’ place).

I haven’t bought a stroller and carrier so I’ll be getting these during the fair too. Doesn’t want to buy these too early – when I was pregnant. 

It’s almost 3am now.  Baby will wake up at 4 or 5am to feed.  It’s been a long while since I had slept without interruption for 4 or 5 hours. Things are just different – you can’t go out for a movie or out for a nice dinner because the darling baby demands all of your attention.  😊 

So yep. Still getting used to the whole parenting thing. And btw these Philips avent bottles are  really crap. Lol. I know.  That was random. 😆
