Eh my baby doesnt like pacifier. He onli open his mouth to look for nipples when he hungry.
I try to let him latch on now onve a day. then e rest i pump out. Cause after he latch on. Nipples pain.
Unfortunately, my gal had got high jaundice level and was only discovered yesterday during check up, gotta be admitted for at least 2 days. Now have to express milk n deliver to hospital for her. So sad n busy... My milk supply has since dropped probably due to stress and baby not latching on. Thought I can have total bf for her benefit, now my gal gotta tk formula to supplement cos my supply is not enough to last her hospital stay. Sob!
you guys advise I manage to get 4 oZ baby jaundice also controlled. Purpeace dont worry mainly is to cure his jaundice after that can still work on Bf.. dont think too much is ok...
we had experience the same thing, for me its only the 7th day after birth..according to research, only the 10th day then have the milk, 4-6 is transition milk whereby its yellowish..I had only 15ml at first..after that felt pain and sore with my breast, gynae said its blockage, need to press and massage very hard then milk will flow..now got 60ml of milk supply
At first i thought if pump more then milk will flow more, so i very hardworking and pump at night, but end up only 30ml..so my conclusion is : if you felt your breast is heavy/pain/uncomfortable, thant means milk is block inside, must pump out..
i also night shift now, my girl drink 3 hour per night,(with formula milk) if breast milk its 2 hours per night coz its diluted..and my girl slept very well in the day and slept very little at night, she is also big eater, so i got no choice but to feed her formula milk first..
dont stress yourself too much, the most impt is you rest well and keep yourself healthy..
Now step is:
1)Always latch on first( i latch on till i felt pain then i switch breast)
2) breastmilk with bottle (coz breastmilk drink more its ok 1, alot of water content, my pediatrician say if you want more milk then you got to drink more fluid)
1)Always latch on first( i latch on till i felt pain then i switch breast, and i wanna have the bonding)
2)Formula milk(Nan 1 pro-heard that its close to mother's breastmilk)
P/s: though ppl say papaya fish soup is good, but my girl got slight jaundice, papaya might coz jaundice too..
Take care and lets keep on perserverse mummies
It's my EDD today but no Idea Is baby coming out.
Wish me luck for him to come out smoothly after 12mn.
I slept with my girl, thought its tiring but no choice, coz i try not to let my mother in law interfere my infantcare, thank God my mother in law is understanding, she also dare not come in during the night coz my hubby will say her..Like many of the other mother in law , my mother in law also wanna use pacificer during, but i educate her by telling her:Mama, lets try not to use pacificer first, maybe the baby is insured as the baby is just few days out of my tummy, need to listen mummu heartbeat and the warmth. etc etc..Actually i also scare that my mother in law is those old fashion type, using those old old method, so before deliver we wnet to library and borrow alot of infantcare book(mag), its really helps as she reallt benefits from there..i also be firm and confident and let her know that i always had my logical reason for what i done..I am also a pre school teacher too, so will assure her i am professional person, blah, blah..
I just maybe your mother in law wants you to rest well during confinement, if you wanna worried about the separation, maybe you can use latch on as an excuse to let your baby sleep in your room..i latch on as and when my baby is hungry, so my baby now auto, when hungry knows how to find my breast, and i am also quick and using the correct latch on already.. Jia you!!
dont be upset, cheer up...you need to rest more ..
dont know y these two night my baby dont wanna sleep on his own in baby cord. And he wants us to carry him.
Once we put him on e bed he will cry immediately. dont know if he sick or he just seeking for us to carry him.
Usually he's not like that.... So tired.
Thanks gers now feel more assure I am able to take Dom I will take tonight if not she complains again.
Thanks jocelyn n Jovin for the encouragement.
My gal is discharged today.. But still have slight Jaundice.
When she is back and I try to latch her, she fell Asleep again very quickly so each time I can only latch like 10 min one side and let her sleep.. Then a while later she wakes up and wants milk again, am afraid she might not be getting enough milk drinking this way. Guess have to give her expressed milk when she is wide awake.
I also have DOM, but baby jaundice, afraid will affect my breast milk so yet to drink. Prob will drink another week later.
I can try more to twice a day. But some days got visitors very hard. I do keep 2 bottles spare milk in fridge.. Thou I hope to have more I feel I am getting so obese.
Wanna take my baby back this noon.. 11 days he been sleeping with mother in law. She fall sick and keep saying is sinus I want my baby so much. Playpen has been a white elephant since 8 days ago. Hope my baby still can adapt to the playpen
