thk you mummies!
during e first few days after delivery, e most i could pump out was 20ml frm both sides. baby rejected my nipple so i tried using a nipple shield. it worked.. after that more milk came in n i could pump out 60ml frm both.. ive been supplementing fm also at night n whenever i dint hav enough breast milk.. i think that's when he realized he had to work harder to suck frm e nipple shield compared to drinking frm e bottle so he started to reject e nipple shield too!
but still, my milk supply increased further probably because i used hot towel to wipe my breasts before pumping n e most i could pump was 200ml frm both sides! that was when my breasts got really engorged n it was day 12 already! i had a fever because of that n had to see e doc.. was told that i had an infection on my left breast maybe cos i dint pump out fully.. was given antibiotics n fever med.
then last night, which is day 13, i couldnt sleep even though i was feeling drowsy frm e meds.. my right breast also got engorged! so painful when i lie down!!
then my whole family were telling me to stop bfing.. furthermore i'll be taking care of my baby alone nxt wk onwards.. hubs n in-laws will only be back in e evening so i dont think i'll hav e time to pump n all..
so this morn i went back to e doc n took meds to stop my milk.. yes i feel terrible but i just cant do it anymore.. =(
