I think it’s quite normal for 1 month old baby to not sleep peaceful. Give your child some time to get use to a new environment ie out from your tummy

Caesarean section after care
I had caesarean last Friday at kkh. Can someone kindly confirm if I can remove the plaster over it already?
Normally there's a follow up after a week, gynae will check and advise accordingly

I went back to my gynae 1 week later after discharge to remove my bandage. Check with your gynae.
When should hubby stop overseas trips in 3rd trimester?
My hubby travels often for business trips overseas. When should I ask him to stop in case our baby arrive early?
Can never be sure. During my last gynae visit, gynae said baby will be in me for next 2 weeks at least but she decided to make her arrival the very next day!

Weight gain
I am overweight, but I only put on 2.5kg so far at 24 weeks. Is that ok? At 20 weeks detailed scan baby’s measurements were all ok.
Super Mum
Thanks everyone. Gynae confirmed it’s fine but I also put on more weight already. 😅

Portable breast pump?
I have bought a Spectra S1+ and am unsure if I should still get a portable electric dual pump for work, travel, etc. please recommend! TIA

Portable ones like S9 or medela freestyle. S1 can put at home, cos bulky. Its more convenient to bring electric pump, not so tiring..
