Coming to the end of Maternity Leave

Can't imagine my maternity leave is finishing soon, to be exact 4 more days and I'm back to work. Took 3 months and left 1 month for flexible usage, I don't think 7 days of childcare leave is enough.. lol.. 

I miss work but on the other hand I miss my girl too. I miss her cry, her smell etc.. The list going to be long man!!

In order to get her into routine/schedule, we started her infant care early, especially me as I'm still breast feeding her, so I got to set my timing for pumping milk, keeping stock etc. And also clean/tidy up my messy room.. My clothes have been flying all over the place. >.<
I'm glad so far things have turn out well (keeping my finger cross), and Baby Yi He is getting hang on the schedule, manage to sleep 8 hours straight, at least Mr Tan and me can have a good sleep for work.   

How's my 3 months you have been wondering. I should say is a great and wonderful journey for me. Despite all the cries and sleepless night and I'm glad Mr Tan share the same views. Few weeks ago he asked me when are we going to have our 2nd? Haha.. Of course I hope it will be soon, but we have to find a bigger place as currently we are sharing the same room as baby. If we have the 2nd one now, I have no idea where to place her.. living room?? haha.. joking!!

Ok time for some photos!! Of course is my precious one! Haha..

I am a new mummy. My baby boy is 2 weeks old.

Can I find out how you manage to get ur baby girl to sleep through 8 hours after 3 months?

Also, do you pump after every feeding? I'm still trying to do TBF and build up the supply. Can you share the frequency of ur pumping and how you store the milk?

Currently, i m only able to pump 50ml of milk per pumping after nursing my baby. So, i can only fill up very little of the storage glass bottle. Can I add on my subsequent days of milk to the same bottle and later freeze it? How many days can I add on to the same bottle?

Sorry for so many questions. Appreciate ur sharing, thanks!
