3 months Rauhah

We are late for Rauhah 3 months jab by 10 days. Sorry darling. Your parents really caught up with 'stuffs' since we come back from Kuantan. The appointment scheduled at 12.15pm and I wake up at 11am. Rushing myself to shower and luckily this young lady already wake up, so cheery as usual. Take her for bath and prepare two bottles EBM in case she needs it in the car. So its just me and Rauhah to PCMC. Alhamdulliah, our journey in in the car was at ease. She sits in the car seat comfortably, looking outside to see moving cars, (most of the time) play with her hands and sometimes checking her mother who is driving.

We arrived sharp at 12.20pm and straight away weigh her in, measure her head and heights. I tought it's just a short appointment or at most half hour, so I didn't bring her carrier nor stroller. Unfortunately, we have to wait for two hours (i assume the doctor has emergency operation or something) and aduhai, lenguh mak nak.

Rauhah at 6.8kg with 64cm height

The good thing is Rauhah is not cranky about it but she's getting flu, probably the aircond that caused her so. She's very happy baby and cooing whoever passed by her. Only cries when she needs her milk and after bf her, she falls asleep.

Her name finally been called at 2.40pm and she's awake when she heard my conversation with the doctor. Her look was like 'Oh boy, it's THE doctor!' with wide eyes suddenly open. Funny expression that I almost chuckeld myself while having conversation. Dr. Anthony was so friendly and he explains the vaccin that Rauhah going to take. He then asked about when Rauhah is taking her solid food which I plan to give her when she's 6mo. He briefly explain that nowdays some mothers choose to feed their baby when 4mo but it's okay because their bowel are well functions to process the food.

After that, I put Rauhah down and he starts checking her reflections from her hands (gasping), her knees and leg. He touched her tummy, abs area and checking her lung as well, afraid for phnumonea. Alhamdulillah, everything was fine and he gives the shot. She gives one loud cry and stops when the nurse quickly take and hug her. That is some baby psychological that I love about this hospital. The hug gives comfort to baby,telling that they are okay :) Way different from Al-Farabi Kuantan.

It's just 15 minutes session and I'm very satisfied with the doctor. Paid the bills and later meet a nurse when we heads to the lift. She saw Rauhah still wearing her mittens and advice to stop doing it cause this is the time she needs to feel my skin and touch things. I told her that Im afraid she would scratch herself (well, actually I dont know how long a baby should wear mittens) but she said I shouldnt worry as long I make sure I dont let her nails too long. She said baby only wears it for a week after born and we should let then learn to touch right away. Point taken and I'm happy that I can now always see the cute plumpy fingers!

Bye bye mittens!

Rauhah is yet to lie downward. Few attemps been made and infact, she tries it very hard but only manage to do it half way. She then would scream, like angry with herself. Haha. It's okay sayang. Cube lagi yer. Sleeping pattern still okay, sleeps through out the night and sometimes wake up just for feed (with closed eyes) Hardly sleeps during the day, even if so, it would just be more or less than half hour. The rest of the day would be her play time, gooing and gurgles a lot, especially when people around.

Poo poo? Well, I notice she takes her time to poops since she entering 3mo. The longest she ever hold her poops is a week! Could you imagine how relief I was everytime she poops? I've checked with the doc and it is fine, as long she's bf, no constipation and happy ;) Tapi bile skali berak, memang BOMlah kan. Kene terus mandi sbb banyak sngt. Haha.

See, I have to write down her berak schedule to remind myself on the last time she poops

Sudah pandai pilih direct bf rather than EBM bottle when I'm around. She would drinks through bottle but that would be time consuming cause she keeps on rejecting after few suction. I had bought few teats to replace medela teats which overdue (teats need to be changed every 3mo) but couldnt find the same teats like it. She loves the medela teats so much that there's one point she would prefer drinking from bottle rather than direct feeding. Yeah, teats issue probably also the problem with bottle feeding nowdays. Her babysitter also said the same thing- she prefer medela teats rather than avent teats.
I couldnt find medela teats sold in KL so far, if yes, it's only in Manjaku Kuantan that sells together with the bottle (it cost a lot too and thats why I didnt buy it before this cause I assume I would get it cheaper elsewhere. now Im regretting myself not buying it. sigh)

Anyway, are you still reading this? Haha. This post are more to our notes for her progress but thank you for reading the whole ramblings. That's it for now.  I leave you with Rauhah new distraction, Pocoyo (she would stay still if she see this, probably because it's one item moving, highlighted color and it's communicates) Enjoice!
