May Shuen and Li Shuen at 1 month old

(1) They both drink 3-4 oz per feeding. Their feeding time is every 2-3 hours. So per day, Mummy have to produce about 40 over oz of breast milk!! challenging, but trying very hard to achieve that. Sometimes, when one of them can't wait, have to give formula. Averagely, one of them will have to take formula once everyday, normally before their sleeping time.

(2) May Shuen will cry very fiercely when she feel hungry, can't wait; While Li Shuen still can wait for her milk if somebody cuddle her.

(3) Both sleep at about 10-11pm and wake up at 7-8am in the morning. Of course, in between they wake up for their milk 2-3 hours interval

(4) MS is able to flip over while she sleeps on her tummy yesterday.

(5) They wanted to be cuddle, especially May Shuen. When we carry them, they will sleep, but when put them on the bed, they will open their eyes and wanted to be carry again.

(6) May Shuen is 3.9kg now wheareas Li Shuen is 3.65kg. ( FYI, our big sister, ES is 15kg now ).

Electric Breat Pump

Mummy's was feeling painful on the left hand when expressing milk during last 2 weeks. It went off gradually after few days.

During that time, Daddy suggested why not consider for an electric breast pump. Mummy was hesitate about it as we already have the manual breast pump. Daddy had purchased online and asked his colleague to take back from US as it is more cost effective then.

Just started to use it this morning. Wow, it makes life much more easier!!!

I can update on baby girls' blog while expressing. It is designed with an electronic memory that puts you in control by learning and continuing your personal pumping style. The electronic memory learns and at the touch of a button, continues your personal pumping rhythm. The gentle-draw vacuum mimics baby's suckling to create a steady milk flow that requires less pumping. Patented massage cushions flex in and out, replicating baby's suckling action and stimulating a fast, natural let-down. In addition to mains power, this single electronic pump can also operate using battery power and as a manual pump, for total flexibility.

The most important thing is, it also come with the appropriate pressure while expressing and you wouldn't feel uncomfortable. As experienced before in hospital, you will feel painful with some breast pump. Because of the pressure...

Thanks daddy for the wonderful gift!

Carry babies

ES likes to carry her sisters. We told her she can only do that when Mummy and aunty are around. ES taking photo with Daddy and MS. Where's LS?

She is sleeping...

Wake up during night time

TO take care of the two babies, if they wake up for feeding during night time, Each time will take one hour for both feeding, and change diapers if needed. So, if wake up 2 times as now, it will take about 2 hours. Not easy ya... Some more plus with the timing for pump out breastmilk, Alamak... Seems like whole night is not sleeping at all!!!

Totally free from formula!

Do we look the same?? May Shuen on the top, and Li Shuen at the bottom of the photo

MS & LS are 12th days old. Glad to announced that both of them had been totally free from formula from yesterday 8.30am till now. So, the theory of Demand = Supply is right... Hopefully can continue that... Total volume of breastmilk pumped put from yesterday 8.30am till 6.30 am this morning is about 21 oz, not calculating in the amount of breastmilk which directly feed to LS ( most of the time direct feed to LS while bottle feed to MS. As I was not so good in bf both babies at the same time, challenging! )

Both of them slept after feeding. Didn't make much noise. Or maybe Mummy was too tired, didn't hear it. The confinement aunty helped to bottled feed them. I still wake up 2 hourly to expressed out the milk.

ES had a good day yesterday. She went out breakfast with Daddy on the Saturday morning. Taking one cup of Milo, 2 half boiled eggs and some breads at Old Town Coffee. In the evening, Daddy took her to her favourite place, Jusco to buy her a new pair of sport shoes and grocery. ES told mummy few days ago that she feels pain when she wear her current sport shoes. So, Daddy had promised her to get a new one this weekend.
