Slight discomfort

Last night was pretty tiring for me... Jayden was not his usual self, woke up a few times, cried and put him back to bed, this went on for a few times... then he woke up around 5am wide-eyed. Gosh.. I really wanted to sleep, so I kept quiet for a while and see if he would go back to sleep... but no.. he decided to wake up, and I knew he wanted to have some milk... So my groggy self went down to make his feeding, after that put him back to the cot and around 10 mins or so, he went back to sleep or so did mummy. As my hubby wasn't around last night, I had to take care of Jayden day and night without help, and I was so tired! But with Jayden waking up so many times last night, I had trouble going back to sleep after Jayden had his feeding.

And this morning, poor Jayden woke up with a slight runny nose and he felt warmer than usual... therefore he was more cranky and manja... checked his temperature and it was 37.7 dc... I quickly gave him some parmol with his milk... after he woke up from his nap, his fever went down. Hopefully tomorrow my baby will be fine.

18 friends spoke up!:

Mummy Gwen said...

Oh...it's very difficult when hubby not around and facing with a sick baby. Hope the fever go away asap and no running nose anymore for Jayden. You rest well ya.

Fussy mum said...

Oh poor baby, hope he's feeling better today and both of you can have a good nite sleep tonight. Take care and rest well.

Mummy Moon said...

It is 1 of the hardest time for mummy to take care unfeeling well baby. Be strong and wish the fever will not come back ya!

mommy to chumsy said...

oh dear. looks like a lot of people are feeling under the weather. speedy recovery to the lil one.

LittleLamb said...

why not, at night, u prepare a flask of hot water, 1 milk bottle / powder n put inside ur room? then u wont have the hassle to run downstairs n make milk middle of the night...

normally when philip is awake middle of the night, i ignore him. he will get the cue n he will fall back to sleep. it works for me.

Merryn said...

Kristie, i have a tray with a bottle n some milk in a container n a flask of hot water next to my bed in case ethan wakes up for feeding at nite, so that i dun have to go all the way downstairs to prepare them.. u may want to do da same?

oh dear, i know how tired u must have felt today.. being alone isn't helping much too.. hope jayden will feel so much better..

ethan will not take his milk if i mix the paramol in it.. jayden is so good! :)

FAMILY FIRST said...

You know what? My lil bryan is 21 mths old and he still wakes up for milk TWICE a night every single night! Me wanna pengsan also no time.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Hope that Jayden will be more better tomorrow.

I wonder normally will he wake up for his night milk?

mumsgather said...

When baby is sick, poor mommy loses sleep. Hope that Jayden will get better soon and you get much needed rest then.

Wonderful Life said...

Aww... poor Jayden and mummy! Hope Jayden is feeling much better now and mummy gets to rest.

Kristie said...

thanks all mummies for ur concern... he is still feeling a little under the weather... i suspect he is teething... but still have to monitor him...

rachel, joanne & merryn- usually he will wake up only once for feeding, or sometimes none at all... what abt ur kids?

Kristie said...

merryn, ya thank God jayden is not fussy with his parmol in his milk...

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

For Sarah, she wakes up more than once.

So envy you that Jayden only wakes up once or less, so you could have more rest.

Kristie said...

joanne, no need to envy lah... all mummies face different problems with their kids :)

i have read before that if bb wakes up at night for feeding, it means they are not having enough feedings for the whole 24 hours, so maybe can increase a feeding in the day?

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Yalor..I also heard from CC about increase the feeding so that baby wont wake up at night..
I have tried to increase Sarah's feeding, but she just cant finish it.

Kristie said...

yes cc also mentioned it before in MP. I am sure you have tried it too, the best if follow the cues from ur child... when i increased jayden's feedings, first few times he also couldn't finish it, always go wastage or he vommits some milk out. But after a few days ok already.
