    The full functionality of having cells fully ready to go is very important. I have classified my cell storage into four tiers. Obsolete cells in tier 4 are stored partially charged. Current rotation cells are short term stored fully charged. Tier two cells that I will rotate into use sooner instead of later are stored at 4.05 volts, and tier 3 cells that I will use later instead of sooner are stored at 3.9 volts.

    Infant sleep/wake rapid cycle is normal, I think; but best to get qualified advice if any concerns.

Good luck with it all. Maybe ask your baby doctor or I can ask my wife for other suggestions when she gets home. She worked OB for years before she switched to family practice and she still sees many children and babies. Itís hard to know anything for sure but she may have some universal suggestions.

LOL I toss all my cells in one bin...But then my Lab looks just the same. ahahhaa

    Infant sleep/wake rapid cycle is normal, I think; but best to get qualified advice if any concerns. Of course but that not until mid next week.

    Haha my gracious. Wife said donít elevate crib or bassinet because baby can roll in an unsafe position. Wish I could find a sleeper like we had to show you. It had a harness so baby couldnít move or roll around. IF it is reflux itís hard to deal with. Not a whole lot you can do.

    What a handsome lil man he is. Thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures with us. Vinh you may try making the swaddle a bit tighter so that his arms are not too loose. When babies shake and move their arms, that can wake themselves up. But when the swaddle is snug, it keeps their hands and arms tight and close to their bodies and should not jolt themselves awake. Thatís just another idea that came into mind along with what others have said. If I think of anything else, Iíll post here.

    Cool Re: The Lounge 2021

    Mine New Year resolution is buying the best flashlight with 2 sources of light, thrower and flooder in 1. For the reasonable price, big throw and good colors. Nothing more needed to be happy 😊

    Vihn, you knucklehead and I mean this in the best way. I raised two boys and this is the last place to ask baby advice on. Try your pediatrician, there what you call professionals.

    Vinh if you havenít ordered any of these fireflies T9r yet, I think you should get a handful to try. Itís a great light. Itís not often that I purchase a light before itís been offered here at skylumen as I always like to get the special vn version...but fireflies gave me a coupon and offered it for sale before it was available.



    Some quick measurements using 30t on all three lights. All three lights have the sbt90. From left to right. T9r, ft03s, k1vn90.
    Brightness doing simple ceiling bounce at turn on:
    T9r- 730 lux
    Ft03s- 730 lux
    K1vn90- 850 lux

    Throw measurements 25 feet away:
    T9r- 478
    Ft03s- 546
    K1vn90- 655

    This is not a review. Just my quick take on the light. I havenít played with the light yet. But so far so good. I like that it doesnít look like your typical flashlight. The head looks strange how it tapers off smoothly until it reaches the body. The tail cap thread was really dry but fireflies did include a small tube of lube. Finish seems well, no sharp edges. Fits well in hand. And weight distribution is fairly even. Iím still unsure about the switch. Itís kinda hard to explain. Thereís not much travel on the switch being you donít need to press down to far to activate it. And there is barely a audible sound when pressing the switch. But because of the short travel, the switch takes a bit of pressure to press down. Not hard at all, but just different. You guys will see what I mean once your light arrives. Or maybe someone can better explain this.

    Congrats on the baby Vinh! Very cute and a heck of a lot of work. I have two toddlers at home all day now and it is still not easy. But you got help from your mom and wife.

    Did you get the T9R SBT90.2 version? If so, those numbers are really impressive for the T9R. I think I recall the head diameter is 10mm or so smaller than the K1. Maybe the lumens in the T9R is higher allowing it to throw farther. I know FF got a really good bin.-

    Yes the T9r is sbt90. The numbers are just so so to me. The k1vn is the impressive one. Look at the ceiling bounce numbers for Lumens. If the T9r was brighter than the Ft03s and throws further than the Ft03s, then itís impressive. But the T9r is still a very great light. Probably one of my top 5 due to size and performance and weight.

    Too much work so the price is outrageous. The stock light is great too though!
