These past 2 days, I have been sleeping with my family downstairs since Amni and I was down with fever. Both of us caught viral fever from Fawwaz and Fahri. I was the last to caught it, and it was really tiring. My body ached all over, I was cold, I had sore throats, and I caught a cold bug from Fahri.
And I have never ever timed how many times Fahri wakes up at night. Between 10 p.m. to 12 a.m., at least 5 times he woke up, and between 12 a.m. to 6 a.m, it was every hour. To sum it up, he woke up like 10 times per night, and it bugs me off.
He still co-sleep with me, due to the fact he is still breastfeeding. But my back hurts a lot, adding to the fact that I had a viral fever. Thanks to the doctor who gave me 2 days MC, I can catch up with my sleep, but I don't know whether I can continue with Fahri's night breast feeding.
Yes, my EBM has been depleting slowly. And Fahri is still a fully breastfeed baby. Next Saturday, he will be 21 months old (1 year 9 months). I did asked my hubby whether I should stop breastfeeding Fahri, but he said it was up to me. Thinking that I only have like 3 months to go, make it a much harder decision.
But whew.. who can tahan when your baby keeps waking 10 times at night? I don't even have the time for my own self pulak tu. Kadang-kadang, tengah malam nak pergi bilik air pun, dah ada budak whining kat atas katil. Even when I want to do my Isyak prayers, he will cry out loud. When I want to brush my teeth and cleanse my face, I have to run to the bathroom for a quick 2-3 minutes fix.
Should I supplement him with formula at this stage?
Now, thinking about formula, I cannot simply go to the supermarket aisle and choose any formula milk that I like. Remember the episode about Fahri's eczema? I badly thinks that I should go for soy formula supplement. So it is between Isomil or Snow (maybe I will stick to Snow since that was what I gave to my 2 older kids before). I did call Nieza to ask her about it, but she said not to worry much about it (oh, how I envy her for relactating her first daughter since she gave birth to her second one.)
Oh Lord, please help me. I am at loss...
