Faith was still crying considerably in the morning. She manages to latch on fine but starts stirring after a while. Not sure why??? It's really a test of the parents' patience. Decided to do hand expression for the colostrum ad we can see an increase in the amount compared to yesterday. Did one round of electric pumping in the afternoon too and it yielded a few ml; not much but it was obvious. A sign to show that Faith has been taking enough - till now 7.30 pm, there has been one change of diaper for urine and 2 for poo. The hand-expressed colostrum has done her well and she has been sleeping soundly now for the past hour while mummy and the rest of the family have their dinner. And to help her to rest better tonight, daddy went out this afternoon to get some breast milk for Faith and Auntie Huiming got her the syringes for feeding. All ready for a better night! :)
