Let me tell you something, these adults are too much, I am only a few days old infant and they expect me to do all sort of impossible things. One of them is breast feeding!
You see, I have got some issues with my food, first my mama stuff me her breast and expect me to suck, and I oblige, but come on, when I suck I expect something to come out, but NO! I suck and I suck and there was nothing, so I gave up and protest. Mama became upset because I protest, and then my popo came, and she took me away from mama because I was protesting very loudly. And popo and papa start negotiate with me, telling me that my mama is now very sensitive, so I better pretend I enjoy her breast. And so I tried again, but mama was so tense that I don't like it! And I protest again, this time popo took me away and calm me down but now mama is crying, so papa had to calm her down. And I got hungrier...finally the adults decided to give me some formula milk, and they decided to use the spoon to feed me. Because I was so hungry and when the milk came I was so excited as I moved my head around the milk spilled all over me, and I need papa and popo to feed me to prevent spillage!
Finally about a week later my mama started to have some milk and I finally get a little bit of milk, but I have grew faster too, and I wanted the milk to flow faster than she can provide, so I started to tell her, but she does not understand, and keep stuffing the nipple in my mouth, so I put on a strong fight to get my "fast food". Eventually my protest got my popo's attention and she gave me bottle with expressed milk. That is what I called food, fast and easy! After a while on the bottle, they decided to put be back on the breast again! Since I am contented I will just entertain them by sucking casually on the breast to make my mama happy.
Now I am 24day old and I finally think mama's breast is good enough for me, although I sometimes wish for the "fast food" but mama's breast is very comfy to sleep on after the feed, and the bottle is too "commercialized" and too "cold".
Note from mama:
Breast feeding is the toughest experience for the whole episode of having a child. The tips I get from friends and family and help from professionals are the most valuable. The breast feeding ordeal is still not over yet, and we both are definitely getting better each day. Yesterday (21/7) is the first time that Kai-Jin never cry when given him my breast (He usually screams when is feeding time.) . I am very please with this and hope will start to get better each day. Thanks again for all the advice and help!!!
