Dana First Check-up

Yesterday at 9:30 am is Dana's first check up. She's already 1 month old and the doctor said, she did really good. She weight 8 lbs and 15 oz. Her doctor expect her to gain more than 2 lbs a month but for Dana, i think she did well. She's a chunky girl now hehe :-) Everytime i carry her i feel like i am holding a ball. She is heavy for 1 month old baby. They just check her weight, head size, temperature and check all her body. No shot this time. I thought they will going to give her a shot but the doctor said maybe we can wait another month before they give her the first vaccination. So will see next month. :-)

Wants more attention...

Since Dana was born, Dustin my 3 year old son wants to get more attention. He's not really jealous to Dana her baby sister but sometimes he get so hyper and he didn't know that he is already acting too much that makes me irritating. He always calling me and he wants to be near me but if i have Dana with me especially when i nursed her, he wants to get more attention. Its been a while since i didn't read him book every night but im glad daddy is the one who taking care of him especially at night when he needs to go potty, brush his teeth, helping dustin to put his jammies on and in the morning, Daddy is the one who prepare breakfast for him and brush his hair because he has this messy looking curly hair and its hard for me to handle it. I dont have any patience with curly hair hehe :-) When mike go back to work, i will make it sure that i will give them both attention, so that it would be fair for both of them.

Baby Colic

Colic is one of the awful thing that happens to all babies. Our 1 month old baby girl has this colic thing every night. Well, not really everynight, most of the times and it depends what i eat. Sometimes i forgot to look for the ingredients and i didn't know that those food will cause her to have colic. Last Tuesday, we went to the Vitamin cottage and look for a colic remedy and we got this 2 kinds of colic remedy. We want to see which one works the best. Also when we went to City Market, we also bought her a little tummy gripe water and see if this one works too. As what i noticed that this homeopathic colic tablets from hyland's works fast than the 2 colic remedy we got. So i think we will stick with this and see how it goes!

Colic Calm Remedy

All mommies wants the best for their children. Just like what everyone says “Mother knows best”. I am a mother too and when it comes to my baby, I always want the best for them. Its hard for me to see my baby crying and screaming at night especially when they feel discomfort from colic, gas or reflux. Its very devastating when it happens but as a parents, we want to give a safe remedies for them. If you are wondering what baby colic is, it is a condition in which an otherwise healthy baby cries or screams frequently. It is more common in bottle-fed babies and also occurs in breast-fed infants. The baby gas also happens to all babies. I know when my little girl has a gas or if she feel pain because it change the way she cries. I don’t know if its similar to other babies but that’s what I noticed to my little girl.

Anyway, when it comes to colic, I found this website at coliccalm.com, this is the only gripe water that delivers FDA regulated medicine, guaranteed effectiveness, safe and 100% natural, no side effects and manufactured in the USA using only the highest quality natural ingredient, free of alcohol, sugar, simethicone, sodium bicarbonate, herbal oils and extracts, citric acid, wheat, gluten, soy, dairy and animal products. This is really good to your baby. Watch this colic video and restore now the peace and happiness to your home by using this colic calm medicine.

Awesome Mom

Before I was a Mom,
I never tripped over toys
or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not
my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunization.
Before I was a Mom,
I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind
and my thoughts.
I slept all night.
Before I was a Mom,
I never held down a screaming child
so doctors could do tests.
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night
watching a baby sleep.
Before I was a Mom,
I never held a sleeping baby just because
I didn't want to put him down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces
when I couldn't stop the hurt.!
I never knew that something so small
could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.
Before I was a Mom,
I didn't know the feeling of
having my heart outside my body..
I didn't know how special it could feel
to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond
between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small
could make me feel so important and happy.
Before I was a Mom,
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night
every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth,
the joy,
the love,
the heartache,
the wonderment
or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much,
before I was a Mom .
Send this to someone who you think is an awesome Mom.

Thank you to Kathy for sending me this wonderful poem about "Awesome Mom". It was so nice of you to send me this. I really appreciate your kindness. Thanks also for sponsoring the baby shower. I really appreciate it. You did a lot to us and you guys are very special.

Baby Clothes

My Little Princess - Dana Fe

Thanks to Rae for sharing this cutie free "Itty Bitty Baby Dress Pattern". I try to make one yesterday and it turns out pretty good. Its not that perfect but it fits well to my baby girl. Anyway here is the picture of my baby girl wearing the cutie pink dress that i made for her :-)

She's 2 weeks now!

Dana Fe, our little girl is 2 weeks old now. She go back to her normal weight and it seems like she gain a little bit more pounds. She is sometimes fussy at night especially if she got a wet and dirty diaper. She cried a lot if she is hungry. Its normal for all babies to have these. Sometimes we have a rough night because the baby keeps us awake. But eventhough we dont have enough sleep, we are happy to see our baby healthy. We are proud to be a parents and we try our best to give Dustin lots of love and attention so that he wont get jealous to her little sister.
This afternoon is Dana's baby shower and can't wait for that moment. Im still thinking what to wear later and guess what? i made a little baby clothes for my little girl! Here is the one i made for her! I sew this last night and it turns out good. Im glad i found a free pattern online or else i will try to do it for myself and try to figure it out hehe :-)

Baby Shower

Today is the day i been waiting for. Why? Because this afternoon, we will going to have a baby shower for my baby girl "dana fe" hosted by our friend Kathy, one of the sister in our congregation. She is also our close friend. The baby shower will be held at Orchard Mesa Middle School at 5:30-8:00pm. I can't wait for that moment. Opening presents will be so exciting! I am sure, Dustin will be overwhelmed to see those gifts and presents. He will be our helper to open the gifts!

Screen printing t-shirt

I’m just done uploading a new scrap kits that I can use for my layout design. Mike also busy putting the new blinds in our bathroom window and now I was thinking to check online and look for a screen printing t-shirt. I came across this website at customyourshirt.com, their screen printing and direct-to-garment digital printing will give you the best results and they offer an incredible pricing. Well, that’s what I am looking for. Let see if I can get one so that I can give it to one of my friend. I am sure she will appreciate this screen printing t-shirt from customyourshirt.com.

Yeast Infection

I never heard this one but when I read the book about Nursing the first two months, I found out about this subject (Yeast Infection). It said they are common in infants and it frequently overlooked as the cause of excessive fussiness. A yeast diaper rash is different than just normal diaper rash. Yeast diaper rash is a dotty, red rash or a peeling rash that resembles a mild burn, typically in the genital area. A baby with a yeast infection usually shows signs in his/her mouth, on his/her inner lips or checks and sometimes also on the tongue. The baby is typically very gassy as the yeast is frequently present in the intestinal tract as well. So you better watch out for that.

Diaper Rash

This is very common why the baby get fuss. If the baby has diaper rash, this is the reason why. That’s why you need to apply a zinc oxide ointment such as Desitin. Expose the baby’s bottom to the air as much as possible; leave off disposable diapers or plastic pants. Well, my baby girl has a little bit of diaper rash and I try to keep it dry and put a baby powder to it. Sometimes I use Desitin especially if it looks really red. Right now, it looks better than yesterday. So if you’re baby get fussy at night and never stop crying. Just check her bottom and see if he/she has a diaper rash.

Spitting up and Vomiting

I think spitting up small amount of breast milk is common and normal to all babies especially if they got enough milk from their mother. Most babies do this after almost every nursing and occasionally a baby may vomit what seems like an entire feeding. It happens to my little girl, she spit and vomit too. I think she cant keep up with my milk. I have enough milk for her and every time she’s done nursing, she burps and she go back to sleep after. There are times that when we put her on the swing and after a while she just spit and vomit. Then I need to nursed her because she’s hungry again. They said vomiting can also be a sign of infection and if the vomits continues, you need to notify your doctor right away especially if the baby vomits forcefully after most feedings and have a sign of fever.

The First Week of Nursing

On the first week of nursing, I am having hard time because my incision still hurt and I couldn’t hardly walk. But I try my best to breastfeed my little girl every 2-3 hours. I already had 2 year experience on breastfeeding so I have an idea on how to breastfeed my second baby in a right way. At first, I thought I don’t have enough milk to give to my baby but my doctor said, I don’t need to worry about because I have enough to give to my baby. I just worried about the day I labor the baby because she lose 9% of her weight. My milk came out after 4-5 days so the second and 3rd day, we gave her formula to satisfied her. The doctor told me that I need to stop feeding her formula if my milk already came out and im glad everythings okay and her weight came back to her normal weight.

Well they said all newborns lose weight after birth. That’s why you need to expect that your baby will lose about 5 to 9 percent of his/her birth weight. He should begin gaining weight by the fifth day about an ounce a day.

Benefits of Breastfeeding

- It has disease fighting cells that help protect infants from germs, illness, and even SIDS.
- It is healthy for both mom and the baby
- Its very different from infant formula.
- You can meet the needs of your baby.
- Its easier to digest than formula.
- You don’t need to sterilize bottles and nipples.
- You can save money by breastfeeding your baby.
- You don’t have to spend for a bottle formula.

The first milk that came out after you deliver your baby is called the Colostrum. This is the thick yellow milk known as liquid gold. This is very rich in nutrients and antibodies to protect the baby on any kind of illness and diseases.

Breastfeeding


We know that breastfeeding is the best thing we can do to our babies. Not only that they can get the nutrition they need, the relationship between mom and the baby will become stronger. They will become more attach to each other and of course the baby will grow up healthy and strong.

Breastfeeding is more than a lifestyle choice, if you choose to breastfeed your baby than to bottle fed them, then you had a great choice! Just like me, on my first pregnancy I rather breastfeed my little boy than to give him formula. I try to give him bottle milk once in a while but he is the one who refuse it. I breastfeed my first baby for almost 2 years and I never felt regret about anything. Im happy because I came on that stage that I gave the best that I could to my little one. Now that I have another baby, I still love to give her the best and that’s the breastfeeding. Breastfeeding is the most wonderful experience I’ve ever had as a mother.

Daddy's Girl!

Mike always want to have a boy but since our first baby is a boy then I was thinking maybe we can make another one and hopefully it’s a girl. Then it happens, we have a healthy baby girl. What I’ve noticed is, mostly daddy give more attention to their little girl especially if that is their first girl in the family. Mike gave so much attention to our baby Dana and I love the way he show his love to our little angel. He also help me change baby’s diaper and at night he woke up easily especially when the baby's crying or make noises.


One of our friend, they have 3 boys and 1 girl and her husband don’t want to have a girl because he is contented to have 3 boys. But then when they have the little girl, it changed everything. The girl becomes daddy’s girl. She is the princess in their family and to us, Dana is our little princess. We love our kids and as a parents, we will give everything we can give to them the Love, attention and time. We try our best to give Dustin more time too so the he wont get jealous with his little sister. When they grow up, I am sure Dustin will be a good brother to his sister and they will take care to each other. As what I see right now, Dana already becomes daddy’s girl and Dustin is a mama’s boy!

First Check-up

Today is Dana first check-up, we have dana's appointment this morning around 10:50am. Dustin and Dana have the same doctor and they will going to check her weight, her head size, temperature and see how she’s doing. She ask me also if I do breastfeeding and I say Yes. My milk already come out yesterday and I think I will stop feeding her formula because her weight is going back to normal. Yesterday when the nurse check her weight, she is 6 lbs and 5 oz., and today her weight is 6 lbs and 10 oz. She has low risk of jaundice too and that is good. Im happy because I have a healthy baby girl and she’s so adorable. I love her so much!

Big Brother


Dustin is a big brother now! And as a big brother, I think he really did good! He really loves her little sister. He always give Dana a hug and a kiss. He also want to help me changing the baby’s diaper. He’s the one who get the diaper and gave it to me. At night, every time the baby’s crying, he woke up and ask “what happen to baby Dana mama fe?” then he go back to sleep after. He care when the baby’s crying and say “don’t cry baby Dana, be happy, Dustin Sultes is here baby Dana”. At his early age, I am sure he will be a good big brother to her little sister.
