Anyway, being Chinese and considering the confinement period of four weeks, I often thought that the four week mark was meant to be your day of liberation. However, I must say that I did not really feel 'liberated' after four weeks. It still seemed like I had been on the treadmill since I was admitted to hospital. However, after six weeks, I can definitely say that it has gotten much better. You have figured things out and the baby has matured and grown so much.
Isaac is now 2 months old and he is doing so many things he could not do before. He can now entertain himself much longer by staring at objects, sucking his fists and sucking on his pacifier or his joon joon as we call it in Hokkien. Previously, he always wanted to be close to people or carried. He would totally ignore the hanging objects on the mobile on the rocker. He took forever to breastfeed. He now stares intently at the objects on the mobile, he can track objects so well with his eyes, he feeds so much faster now (I never thought this day would come) and he is now cooing and smiling. I can't wait for his first chuckle! He is simply adorable :)
So it is true, to all new mums and mums-to-be, it does get better!
