so what have i been up to lately? other than the bouts of baby blues(yes, it happens).. i've been reading about breastfeeding & burping.
with the wonders of side lying breastfeeding.. it became harder for me to make munchkin burp. she just doze off to sleep. even when i kept trying for 5, 10, 15 mins... she still doesn't give in. worst, she would wake up & think its time to play. blergh. not cute at 3am.
my worst fear was waking up to a choking, gagging munchkin.. (whom then will only burp the daylights out of her) .. and last night i caught her waking up, crying and milk flowing out of her nose! sangat scary ok!
i found a couple of forums and articles where moms faced the same issues. apparently its pretty common. and most will eventually get better with age. and it will also improve with a couple of tips suggested (change before feeds to avoid sleepy eaters.. feed alittle, burp.. feed..).
my take on this.. i'd try anything to reduce my keterkejutan beruk tengah2 malam (dan subuh.. dan pagi..)
