Having gotten a knack for breastfeeding, my baby drank breast milk well on the fifth day of his birth. My breast didn’t’ hurt even though I didn’t use the breast pump. Then, I was gonna give my baby a bath for the first time. I learned how to do it at the hospital but I couldn’t understand it well. But I was OK. Because my sister came to my mother’s house after me having a baby and she was able to teach me the way she does it. I was able to do it while learning how to do it from my sister. After taking a bath I bottlefed him. He fell asleep comfortably. At the night I didn’t realize when he started to cry at 11:30 at night for a while. I didn’t feel tiredness but I was tired. I thought I would take a nap tomorrow. And I put my baby on the side of me on the Futon bed. By the way this picture is my baby and nephew. My nephew knows baby is weak and has to take care of him by instinct. He looked like he wanted to touch the baby but he didn’t know the way he treats it. After few days he tried to touch the baby bit by bit. He’s gonna become a brother for my baby.
On the third day after having my baby I used the breast pump because a midwife told me to use it. And I got much milk more than I imagined. I heard it already but the milk looked pale milky yellow. I made powdered milk also and he couldn’t wait for the milk and cried strongly four times for the first time. The loud cry came as a surprise to me! I thought he got angry with it and it rushed me. He looks calm and cool. When he even poops, he keeps cool and calm like nothing happened. It’s very funny and I like that!
About one month almost passed after having a baby. I supposed to be with my baby at the same room on the following day of giving birth. It was the first day when I spent time with my baby. At the first night he didn’t stop to cry and I was wondering what to do and went to the nurse station to get some advice. Thinking back now, it was a long sleep. He slept from at 3 to 6 in the morning. So I was able to sleep for 3 hours in a row. But I was sleepy and talked with other mothers about it on the following morning. I feel that it was a long time ago.
