Little girl at 3 weeks old

Just how time flies! Baby Dyann is already 3 weeks old. She seems to look a little different from birth. She is definitely growing fast weekly! :)Isn’t she a lovely little girl? I bet she is going to become daddy’s girl for sure! Hehe… 😉


She has not recovered from her Jaundice and is really upsetting to see her taking the blood test during her weekly review. Since she is already three weeks old and is still yellowish, she needs to have a blood test done to check on her liver. This time round, blood is drawn from her hand instead of her sole. It is definitely much much more painful! As she has never cry during the usual blood test, however, during that blood test, she was crying damn loudly and for quite sometime. I do not dare to see the blood test process and so I was seated at the other corner tearing. Just tell me how not to cry hearing the little one crying so loudly… Hah! According to Papa Yap and Zhen Jie, Baby Dyann teared as well. Super heart pain can! Thank god, result is out and she is fine! 🙂 While right now, we are still waiting for her urine test result. According to Dr Ho, another reason that her Jaundice is not subsiding could be due to urine infection. Anyway, as instructed by Dr Ho looking at her Jaundice level, I need to stop total breastfeeding for the time being and switch to alternate feeding. Which means latching follows by formula milk feeding then latching again. Baby Dyann surely does prefer latching on and drinking the breast milk, she is still adjusting to drinking the formula milk. On the first day, she tends to throw up the formula mik. Until yesterday things are looking better. So when she is bottle feeding, I would be expressing out the breastmilk in order to maintain the supply. Well, I will be switching back to total breastfeeding after she fully recovered. Hopefully real soon! 🙂
