'Dad' again

I'm happy to announce that I'm the father again to a new born baby boy. This little cute angel joined our family last week. That's why I've not updated my blog since then. As there's so much to do for the new born. i.e. all the diaper-changing, bottle-feeding, etc. Just exhausting. I do hire a helper during the day time to assist us during our paternal and maternal leaves. However, still, I'm the one that wake up every few hours to feed my boy. Sleep has become a luxury. Thank God that I'm an 'easy-sleeper' that take me no time to snore, unlike my poor wife who is a 'awakener' that can't sleep easily but wake up in a snap with a bit of noise. Though I've experience of being a hands-on dad for my older son, every baby is just different. So far, my boy doesn't neg for hugging and all that. But, the bad thing is that he doesn't suck much! So the feeding part is torturing, it just takes too exhausting to huddle him to suck bottle. I hope things will turn around soon. Otherwise, I don't know how can that be managed when I get back to work in about 2 weeks. I just wanna pray.....

Congratulations! You must be so happy.

Just curious -- you get paternal leave? I've never heard of that in Hong Kong. In Europe, yes, where governments are very generous about parenthood, but not here.

So you're the one getting up for night feedings. You're a good dad. :)
Are you feeding formula? Or is your wife preparing natural milk in advance?

鹿米館, Thanks for your blessing! Great blog that you have been writing, keep it up!

Joyce, I only got 2 days of paternal leave (the check-in and check-out days of my wife at hospital. Yes, I'm feeding formula with some breast pumping supplimentary as well.
