C.O.L.I.C

written by ~warhans~ at 1:37 PM 0 responds Links to this post

Kembung Perut (COLIC)

Kembung perut biasanya dikaitkan dengan bayi yang menangis disebabkan oleh sakit perut.Diagnosa ditentukan berdasarkan ciri-ciri berikut:

1. Bayi menangis berterusan atau kerap menangis buat masa yang lama tanpa sebab-sebab yang jelas.

2. Masalah ini berlarutan selama 2-4 jam sehari untuk sekurang-kurangnya 5 hari seminggu dan selalunya bermula pada umur bayi 2-3 minggu dan beransur kurang/pulih apabila bayi mencapai umur 3-4 bulan.

Mengapakah sesetengah bayi mengalami kembung perut?
Sebab tidak diketahui. Beberapa teori termasuk :

Usus :
1. Alah kepada protein susu lembu.
2. Alah kepada laktosa.
3. Usus belum matang. Pencernaan karbohidrat yang tidak sempurna akan menyebabkan kembung dengan "angin" yang berlebihan.
4. Ketidakselesaan disebabkan "angin".

Biologi :
1. Cara menyusu : kurang atau lebih menyusu dan kurang sendawakan bayi.
2. Terdedah kepada asap rokok. Ibu yang merokok sewaktu mengandung atau di dalam pantang akan menyebabkan bayi berisiko tinggi untuk kembung perut.

Psikososial
1. Ibu bapa yang tertekan.

Lain-lain
1. Sistem saraf bayi yang belum matang menyebabkan ia lebih sensitif kepada faktor persekitaran.

Adakah ramai bayi yang mengalami masalah ini?
Dianggarkan 1 hingga 5 dalam 10 bayi mengalami kembung perut.

Apakah tanda-tanda bayi anda mengalami kembung perut?
Bayi akan selalunya :
1. Menangis sekuat hati dalam jangka masa yang lama.
2. Diikuti menarik kedua belah kaki ditarik ke perut dan tangan dikepal.
3. Tidak selalunya berkait dengan perut buncit, muntah, demam atau tanda- tanda penyakit yang lain

Adakah kembung perut akan menyebabkan masalah serius yang lain?
Kebiasaannya bayi akan sihat dan boleh membesar dengan baik.

Bagaimanapun, masalah ini mungkin boleh menyebabkan tekanan perasaan dan kebimbangan di kalangan ahli keluarga.

Ibu bapa merasa kecewa dan risau melihat keadaan bayinya.

Bagaimanakah untuk mengelakkan masalah ini?
1. Tiada rawatan yang khusus. Keadaan ini akan pulih dengan sendiri apabila bayi berumur 3-4 bulan.

Jika anak anda kembung perut :
1. Elakkan terlalu kerap mengangkat bayi ketika ia merengek.
2. Selimutkan bayi sehingga selesa dan dodoikan dengan lemah lembut
3. Kurangkan bunyi bising
4. Bawa bayi anda bersiar-siar
5. JANGAN SEKALI-KALI MENGGONCANG BAYI ANDA
6. Jika ibu bapa merasa tertekan atau penat, cuba dapatkan bantuan orang lain untuk menjaga bayi dan ambil rehat yang secukupnya.

Dapatkan nasihat doktor jika :
1. Tangisan bayi anda seperti di dalam kesakitan.
2. Ada masalah lain seperti muntah, perut buncit, cirit-birit atau sembelit.
3. Bayi anda demam
4. Ibu bapa terlalu bimbang atau penat dan tidak boleh menangani masalah ini sendiri.

Apakah ubat yang boleh membantu?
1. Tiada ubat yang berkesan untuk meredakan kembung perut.
2. Anda boleh mencuba ubat untuk "angin" atau "colic" dan sejenis ubat bernama "dimethicone" untuk mengurangkan rasa kembung.

Bagaimanakah untuk mengelakkan masalah ini?

Jika bayi anda menghisap susu botol:
1. Amalkan teknik penyusuan yang betul, pastikan saiz puting yang sesuai dan sendawakan bayi anda di antara penyusuan.
2. Cuba tukar susu contohnya susu soya selepas merujuk kepada doktor anda.

Jika bayi menyusu badan :
1. Teruskan penyusuan susu ibu, tetapi ibu perlu mengelakkan makanan tertentu seperti kobis, broccoli, bunga kobis, kafein dan makanan yang dibuat dari susu lembu.

Peringatan

Kembung perut (colic) adalah masalah yang mencabar tetapi ia tidak menimbulkan kesan bahaya kepada bayi pada masa akan datang. Diagnosa yang tepat adalah penting.


Dapatkan nasihat doktor jika:
1. Diagnosa tidak dapat dipastikan
2. Adanya tanda-tanda penyakit serius yang lain.

2 is better than 1

written by ~warhans~ at 3:10 PM 0 responds Links to this post

I remember what you wore on the first day
You came into my life and I thought
"Hey, you know, this could be something"
'Cause everything you do and words you say
You know that it all takes my breath away
And now I'm left with nothing

So maybe it's true
That I can't live without you
And maybe two is better than one
But there's so much time
To figure out the rest of my life
And you've already got me coming undone
And I'm thinking two is better than one

I remember every look upon your face
The way you roll your eyes
The way you taste
You make it hard for breathing
'Cause when I close my eyes and drift away
I think of you and everything's okay
I'm finally now believing

That maybe it's true
That I can't live without you
And maybe two is better than one
But there's so much time
To figure out the rest of my life
And you've already got me coming undone
And I'm thinking two is better than one

I remember what you wore on the first day
You came into my life and I thought, "Hey,"

Maybe it's true
That I can't live without you
Maybe two is better than one
But there's so much time
To figure out the rest of my life
And you've already got me coming undone
And I'm thinking
I can't live without you
'Cause, baby, two is better than one
But there's so much time
To figure out the rest of my life
But I'll figure it out
When all is said and done
Two is better than one
Two is better than one

- 1st time dengar lagu ni kat channel mtv.. best la plak..

futnot: yes.. definitely.. 2 is better than 1..

Overdue pregnancy: What to do when baby's overdue

written by ~warhans~ at 3:19 PM 0 responds Links to this post

Your due date has come and gone — and you're still pregnant. What's going on?

Although your due date may seem to have magical qualities, it's simply an educated guess about when your baby is most likely to arrive. It's perfectly normal to give birth one to two weeks before — or after — your due date. In fact, your pregnancy must continue two weeks past your due date to earn the official label of overdue pregnancy, also known as post-term pregnancy.

Enough already!

You may be more likely to have an overdue pregnancy if:

- The exact date of the start of your last menstrual period isn't known
- This is your first pregnancy
- You've had prior overdue pregnancies
- Overdue pregnancy runs in your family
- Your baby is a boy

Rarely, overdue pregnancy may be related to problems with the placenta or the baby.

Whatever the cause, you're probably tired of being pregnant by this point. Your back may ache, and your ankles may be swollen. You may be struggling with heartburn and hemorrhoids. You may have trouble sleeping because you simply can't get comfortable —or anxiety about childbirth may keep you awake.

Rest assured, an overdue pregnancy won't last forever. Labor may begin at any time.

Keeping an eye on your pregnancy

Prenatal care will continue after you pass your due date. Your health care provider will watch for signs of complications, such as preeclampsia. He or she will also check your cervix to see if it's begun to thin and dilate in preparation for labor. If you're more than one week past your due date, your health care provider may track your baby's heartbeat with an electronic fetal monitor or use ultrasound to observe your baby's movements and measure the amount of amniotic fluid.

Giving baby a nudge

Sometimes, it's better to deliver sooner rather than later — particularly if your health care provider is concerned about your health or your baby's health or if your pregnancy continues more than two weeks past your due date.

Why the concern about two weeks? At this point in pregnancy, your baby's size may complicate a vaginal delivery. In a few cases, aging of the placenta may compromise a baby's ability to thrive in the womb. An overdue baby is also more likely to inhale fecal waste (meconium), which can cause breathing problems or an infection after birth.

If you and your health care provider decide to induce your labor, you may be given medication to help your cervix soften and open. If your amniotic sac is still intact, your health care provider may break your water by creating an opening with a thin plastic hook. It doesn't hurt, but you may feel a warm gush of fluid when the sac breaks open.

If necessary, you may also be given medication to kick-start your contractions. A common choice is Pitocin, a synthetic version of oxytocin — a hormone that causes the uterus to contract. The dosage may be adjusted to regulate the strength and frequency of your contractions.

Hang in there

You're in the homestretch! Whether your health care provider suggests a wait-and-see approach or schedules an induction, do your best to enjoy the rest of your pregnancy.

- Accept your emotions. It's OK to feel frustrated or disappointed. You probably didn't bargain for more than 40 weeks of pregnancy.

- Take advantage of the extra time. Sleep while you can. Put the finishing touches on the nursery. Stock your freezer with extra meals. Address birth announcements and thank-you cards.

- Make plans. Your health care provider may want you to stay close to home, but that's no reason to miss a new movie, go out to dinner or take a walk in the park. Don't be afraid to make plans just because you may need to cancel at the last minute.

- Put your answering machine or voice mail to work. To keep well-meaning friends and loved ones informed, consider recording a greeting with the latest on the pregnancy front. "We're patiently waiting for the big day!" may be enough to handle the inquiries that are sure to test your patience.

- Treat home remedies with a dose of caution. A simple Internet search will yield countless results for "natural" ways to trigger labor, such as eating spicy food or having sex. Some tactics are relaxing, others silly — and a few may do more harm than good. Get your health care provider's OK before trying any home remedies, herbal supplements or alternative treatments.

- Stay in touch with your health care provider. You'll need frequent checkups until your baby is born. Make sure you know what to do if you think you're in labor.

Soon you'll hold your baby in your arms — and the long wait won't matter.

Taken from here

Coping strategies after 40 weeks

• Have something planned for every day. Don't stay at home wondering whether you can feel anything happening. Get out of the house - but not too far!

• If you haven't already stocked up the freezer, do so now. After your baby is born, you'll be really glad you've got lots of food in the house.

• Tell friends and relatives not to ring every day to find out what's happening - say you'll call them when the big event has taken place!

• Go out for lots of last-minute treats with your partner. It won't be so easy after your baby's born.

• Rest - if you're finding it difficult to sleep at night, take a nap during the day. Put your feet up. Play some music. Don't fret if you can't sleep, dozing is fine. Build up your energy stores for labour.

• If you think your labour has started, but you're not sure, phone your midwife and ask for advice. Don't hesitate to give her a call if you're worried.
