C-Section Babies Needs TLC

I delivered Faith through Caesarian process for her cord was wrapped along her neck so whenever I push, her hear beat becoming so slow. When my doctor decided to have a C-section I was having doubts because aside from it is too costly, kids who undergone C-section can easily catch allergies and illness.

There is a latest studies that the way babies are brought into the world plays a crucial role on the development of their immune systems. Babies who delivered through normal process get in contact with the mother’s good bacteria as the baby descends the vaginal canal. These friendly bacteria grow and multiply in the baby’s gut, which is the largest organ of his immune system. The more good bacteria an infant has in his gut, the earlier his immune system can be stimulated and trained to be strong.

While C-section does not pass through the birth canal, their sterile birth conditions deprive them of those friendly bacteria that would awaken a strong immune response early in life. Thus, they are prone to infections and allergies and that may include gastrointestinal as well as respiratory diseases.

And the best way to keep the infections aback is to encourage breastfeeding because it has important nutrients for the growth and development of the baby. Breast milk has antibodies that help protect the baby from developing infections. It also provides friendly organisms like Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli. These are probiotics the baby needs in his gut to develop a strong immune response.

So when circumstances arise that you need to have C-section, always remember that C-section babies needs a thorough Tender Loving Care and breastfeeding is the best way to nourish and protect your baby.

Whoop! Whoop!

It is early this morning that I felt the heavy breathing again while coughing a bit hard too. Faith moves a little while trying to get the empty feeding bottle beside her; I took it because it might cause her stomachache sucking the bottle without milk in it. She cried when I did that, so I carried her and we went to the kitchen to prepare her another bottle of milk.

She was lying in my shoulder, good thing my cough did not bother her. Right after I was done preparing with her milk I lay her down back to the bed and gave her the bottle again. She went back to sleep while I was striving so hard with my hard cough.

I went to the living room trying to feel at ease and to close my eyes but I was not successful, I was still having a hard time to breathe, then I called my sister to spare me some of Kuya Jame’s asthma medicines. It helps me though because I was able to breath and went back to sleep.

You’re My Number One

Mother’s Day here in the Philippines is fast approaching. So to all Moms out there advance Happy Mother’s Day to all of us!

I remember one time when I deliberately argued with one of my officemates regarding on being a good mom. It was a fine afternoon and the staff was talking about things in life, then suddenly she judge things about Mothers doing their best just to fulfill a career and all that.

I straightly told her that she doesn’t have the right to judge any Mother whether she is being bad or good or anything because she doesn’t know the whole story. A Mom perhaps left her kids to go to abroad, a mom perhaps gave her kid to someone; a mom perhaps hid the kid for career purposes. Each of us had reasons why we were able to do such thing, and one includes, she have to support her family the reason why she went to abroad, she wanted a brighter future for her kid, and she hid her kids because it is the only way she could have that job to buy milk and food for her children.

A mother is always a mother that she could forgive all the mistakes that her children committed whatever it is, a mom could endure all the pains in the world in replace of their kids suffering, a mom is a woman who provide all the needs of her children even she will be left with nothing.

You’re My Number One

Look at me mom
Shining like the sun
Bright as the day
You’re my number one

And there’s no treasure
That I will cherish like you

And when I smile
They all see you glow
And they all know
You’re my number one

My one and only joy
Is to give you my love

(Bridge)
My one love for you
I give through and through
I see you and the signs that bring joy
That all the world can see so clearly

Look at me mom
Shining like the sun
Bright as the day
You’re my number one
