First of all, thanks to FirstCry for providing us with an opportunity to share our parenting experience.
My son is just two weeks old; born on 5th July 2020 at noon. He weighed 2.6 kgs at birth and was put in incubator initially for two days for observation. This distance affected his breastfeed directly. But somehow, we could manage to send his mom’s milk, which was fed by the nurse at the hospital, which was so considerate.
During the first week, he slept throughout the day with intermediate breastfeeding, and the doctor advised to feed him every two hours. He cried every hour and a half during the nights for his feed automatically. In fact, we didn’t need an alarm to check the timings. He was punctual.
Later on, in the second week, he got tuned to our habits, started balancing the day and nights equally. In fact, during the day, he was so happy to spend time with us. He enjoyed looking around and watch the surroundings and the people.
But the concerning part was that he started sleeping during the day and the night with very few breaks for feed. We had to wake him up for his feeds. Further, we also tried to improve his feeding rates and also active interaction with balance sleep.
At last, the very important thing was the pandemic, which really scared everyone. So we are taking the utmost care of our baby, and no one is allowed to touch him or come near. We are asking our relatives and close ones to visit in the near future because everyone is so eager to see the baby.
Safety comes first. If some people happen to visit, we give them proper sanitisation at the entrance and also treat them as foreign guests and ensure they maintain distance from the baby.
So it’s better to call your close ones until the situation gets alright. We have also cancelled all our rituals, functions and parties due to the pandemic. But, I pray to God that it goes smooth, we have a cure, and the pandemic ends soon.
Happy to share our moments.
