Baby Daryl Is Born

Baby Daryl was born today via elective c-section. He was born around 2:20pm, weighed 2.57kg and 47cm.

Baby Daryl Sleeping
He has been sleeping more than 24 hours now, still hasn't woken up to look for milk

So far, we can see that he is not as ‘fierce’ as his elder sister, which is a prayer answered. He seems to be really patient too, until now he hasn’t screamed for milk! In fact, he’s so relaxed we’re a bit worried haha, but doctor said it is normal for babies to sleep after they’re born.

You might want to check out baby Rachels’ photos, see if you can spot any resemblance or not!

After bath time, they accidentally put him in a pink blanket because he ‘looked like a girl’, and he looks even more like his sister.

Happy Mummy and Daryl

Mummy was already up and walking early the next morning, to the amazement of nurses. But Poey Chin is a strong girl… the faster she walks around, then faster she will recover.

Rachel has also met baby Daryl, and keeps wanting to kiss him. We gave Rachel a soft toy from her little brother, but she insists on letting him play with it. Another prayer answered, she seems to have no hostility to her brother (yet)

Before the operation, I was put to wait in a waiting room off the surgical theater. While waiting I took some photos of myself.

Wearing a green gown and cap. Later they made me change into blue scrubs and wear a mask before entering the OT.
Adino in pink Crocs
At first I thought I had to wear these pink Crocs. Fortunately a pair of yellow slippers became available.

More photos to come!

  6. Congrats! 🙂 c-section bcos daryl refused to come out? 😉

    Adino: Thanks! No, it was on doctor’s advice

  7. I think maybe yr first baby was also c-sect, I heard if first one c-sect, second one also got to be c-sect., dunno the actual reason 🙂

    I looked at Rachel’s newly born photod, spotted that both babies had same head shape and you have better camera this time 🙂

    Adino: Actually it depends, but in our case yes. Ya both of them have similar features. The camera I used is the same… a Sony Cybershot point and shoot. But probably this time my hands are not shaking hehe
