This is a Monday's Musings - Random thoughts, feelings and musings by Yours Truly entry under my themed blog posts! For more info about the themed blog posts, do read the entry here

I think most of my Monday's Musings entries comes from real life experiences. When irked, amused, I think it makes good content for Monday's boliaoness posts.

Previously I wrote a piece "5 Things That Change Once You've Been Married" back in 2014. Since  then, I've embarked into a new role, as a mother.

Decided to blog about how things have changed since then. I’ll like to hear from other parents on things that have changed for you! Please do comment on this 5 Things That Change Once You've Become A Parent entry!

1. You'll never sleep well ever again.

Waking up every 3 hours because the baby needs to feed or change his diaper. Yeah. Especially if he's breastfed, he'll need to feed more frequently than formula fed babies.

After 6 months, Aidan has kinda slept thru the night. Sleeping thru the night means 5 hours. So, that's the best I can get. 5 hours of sleep at a stretch. I'll take whatever I can get.

2. You'll never stop worrying.

During my pregnancy, we had a few scares. My gynae shared with us some advice. He said "we'll never stop worrying as parents." And it's so true!

You'll worry if he's not eating well, if he's gaining too much weight, not gaining enough weight, has his monthly jabs, have not started flipping like his peers, have started flipping. Basically everything. Just the other week, Aidan had a fever (not related to any jabs). Needless to say, I freaked out. Skai, being the more rationale one, told me to calm the fuck down. -_-"

Gave him some paracetamol and sponged him. His fever soon disappeared.

3. You'll take more pictures of your baby than of yourself.

Forget selfies or wefies with your partner. The only pics that matter are your babies. Sometimes you'll take wefies with your baby but most of the time, it is just a whole lot of spam pics of your child.

4. You'll feel that time passes by way too fast.

Every single day, I feel that he's growing up way too fast. Do I wish that I had the luxury to stay at home with him? Every single day.

Do I feel guilty about not spending enough time with him? Every single fucking day.

Honestly, most days, I hardly hang out with friends. Many times colleagues would ask me out for dinner etc, but all I want to do is rush home and see my boy. Goodbye social engagements and blogger events. Maybe once in a fortnight, perhaps.

5. You'll never stop learning.

You probably thought that after university, you'll never have to read or study again.

YOU ARE SO WRONG.

I have never researched so much in my life before. Reading about pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding and now weaning.

Time passes by way too fast! In a blink of an eye, Aidan has turned 6 months old! That's half a year!

Untitled

I've hit my personal milestone of exclusively breastfeeding Aidan for 6 months! I will continue to breastfeed him as long as I can. Trying my best!

Untitled

I love waking up in the morning and seeing him grin at me. Co-sleeping with him is very comforting too. Though we try to not co-sleep if it's just one of us in bed with him as he is beginning to flip with a vengeance.

Untitled

He has also began to whine and cry tremendously. I think it's mainly cos he is teething and is feeling extremely uncomfy. 🙁

Untitled

He is extremely attracted to light, especially our headboard light. He loves to crawl, well, try to crawl to it. He also is very clingy and loves to be carried upright.

Untitled

We'll be starting solids soon when he begins to sit upright. In the meantime, we're treasuring as much precious time with him. Don't grow up too fast, will ya?

I first found out about babywearing from a girlfriend of mine, Elaine. (She's one of my bridesmaids!)

When I thought about the whole concept of babywearing, I was extremely excited! I knew that during my maternity period, Skai will be back to work.
