I’m so sad that Dayre might close down, and I’m so paranoid that I won’t be able to save my old posts on #LittleDee 😭

Now where am I gonna get my #dayremummies update? Sob.

Holding out hope that Dayre might be saved with the petition & survey which I just did. So I’m updating with one of my proudest moments of baby’s eating efforts.

Gave her sour dough bread to entertain herself after she finished her baby biscuit and I honestly didn’t think she would be able to eat it cos it was the crust so it was really hard.

But gosh. She really managed to finish it while hub and I were looking on with worried eyes wondering if we should dig the piece of bread out.

Anyway I’ve been following Dayre accounts on Instagram and if you would like to stay connected, baby has an Instagram account at @/baebyxu 😂

Brought #LittleDee to her first buffet dinner… and I had a shock of my life while walking to the restaurant.

Baby was asleep in her stroller (I managed to successfully transfer her from car seat to stroller somemore leh), and when I exited from the lift… drama happened.

One of the bellboy was pushing a trolley full of luggages.. and somehow it tipped over, AND LUGGAGES CAME CRASHING DOWN TO THE STROLLER.

Everything happened super fast and I was also in a shock but my first reaction was to quickly open up the canopy. Was a bit of blur but I think the luggages didn’t crash flat down and it only tipped the stroller backwards, before I quickly secured it down.

Opened the canopy to see my baby in shock, but not crying yet, so I quickly scooped her out from the stroller and carried her while she let out a wail, but calmed down when I carried her.

Inspected her and aside from being super awake (sigh), she looked fine and could still smile to the bellboy while he looked on in shock.

Ok la long story short, the bellboy (which I realized he was the manager on duty after), was super professional and very apologetic.

He stayed on after his shift ended at 730pm, and went to check on us while we walked out of the restaurant at 11pm.

Soooo his follow up was great, baby is fine, but I secretly wish we had a free dinner or staycation hahahaha.

Since baby was up, I decided to get some food from the buffet spread. Took broccoli, jackfruit, papaya, watermelon & beetroot (which I didn’t feed in the end)… and decided to do it blw style to let her try and self feed.

Was super amazed at how she was chomping down the broccoli even though she hated it when I tried to mash it to give her previously.

Basically we just sat her down and passed her new items after she was done with the previous ones, and dinner was so fuss free cos I didn’t have to keep spoon feeding her unlike previous dinners!

Again.. just reaffirming myself that I really prefer the blw method.

But since now we have started her on tw, I might just continue with a combo until I feel that she can feed herself sufficiently with blw before I make the full transition?

Who is this big girl sitting with us at the dinner table now? 😭

It’s #LittleDee’s first time sitting in an unpadded high chair, and she sat through most of it really well while I fed her until she got cranky and I had to bribe her with a biscuit.

But seriously, who is this big girl 😭

Feeling so exhausted.

Ever since #LittleDee started on solids, it’s been so tiring prepping the food, cleaning up the kitchen, feeding her, cleaning her up, and finally cleaning the mess she made.

But I think it’s really my own doing because:

1) Refusal to blend and purée the food because I simply can’t bring myself to do it (really dislike preyed food), which means cutting up the food individually.

2) Wanting her to try and self feed herself, so it ends up being a hot mess. But I’ve also observed that she prefers to grab the spoon to attempt to feed herself. Aye but baby, you can’t sit unassisted so we can’t do BLW.

3) Was initially very adamant on doing this entirely on my own. Why? I’m also not sure. Maybe too stubborn lol. But I think moving forward some of the meals I’ll get my parents to help, or at least feed her at their place so I only need to clean her or the mess up.

Doesn’t help that this girl only likes the sweet stuff and hates her greens. Broccoli is the worst, but other veg like spinach, kale & caixin takes soooo long to feed.

I just miss the days when I can sleep for 8 hours straight. Or the days when I can snooze my phone and laze in bed until 12pm.

Ok better sleep when baby sleeps.

One of the key job scope of being a mother is cleaning up after your baby..

But today I experienced one of the lowest points in my life. Where I literally kio #LittleDee’s sai.

Back story to this is that she already had pooped twice in the morning. Actually she usually poops once every morning, but if she doesn’t poop after 12pm she won’t poop for the day already.

But her last poop was on Fri and I was worried that she would be constipated despite eating quite a lot of papaya, so I decided to paste this TCM herbal sticker thing on her belly button yesterday which will supposedly help her to poop.

And so she did – twice in the morning! So I thought that was it, so when I was feeding her solids in the afternoon she gave the “uhhhh” sound, I didn’t think she would poop again and ignored her.

After she was done with food, I brought her along with the feeding chair to hose down in the toilet.. and when I opened her diaper to throw away I realized it was full of poop!!

She was wet from the shower so I couldn’t go back to the room to get the wet wipes cos else she would drip poop along the way.

So I decided to rinse her butt in the sink.. except I realized because her poop is now pastey and no longer watery like before – IT WOULDN’T COME OFF 😭

And that’s how I ended up literally using my hands to dig out her poop. So gross I can’t even.

Lessons learnt:

1) Do not question my baby’s cues when she makes the poop sound.

2) Must leave wet wipes in the toilet.

😪

So while we were on our way home, #LittleDee started whining and it escalated when we turned into our carpark:

When hubby was getting ready to reverse and park, I told him that our daughter will stop crying, and obviously he didn’t believe me.

Lol but guess what – she did! And hubby was very amazed hahaha. I told him I observed it a couple of times already, think she knows that when the car is reversing, she’s gonna get off and be carried lol.

Just really quite amazed at how smart babies are 😂
