Express milk os also our breast milk, so i guess if baby is still drinking breast milk its still ok..one of the parents of my students told me use formula children will grow chubby...so i guess mixed feeding is not a bad choice, night time is really hard to breastfeed..
Lets press on!!
Yar.. having to see... just 40 ml expressing.. is depressing. I not so big hahahha, I am only C cup :P but drink water. Yar drinking alot. I abandon the red dates ginger tea... damn hot... The highest i got was 120ml from both side.. now no hopes . BTW baby is more chubby with breast milk.. not formula.. formula increase weight too fast. Massage i did also.. press till so hard and pain... still no milk flow.. i have to pump for 1 hr to get 2 oz..
Press on.. Hahaha lets press on the milk button longer. No idea how long this can last...
I find warm shower helps with the milk flow... But still not sufficient... Bahh!!!!
I've lost most of tummy and a lil off waist but I'm still at 60kg!!!! Bloody hell!!!
Means I've only lost 5 kg after popping....1 month already man.... Depressedzzzz
I need to lose on the hip! 10 mths to gain weight.. takes awhile to lose them out.. I feel so tempted to head down to the gym to do some light weight lifting for my big arms.. so I can carry baby hahha... and also.. another month for uterus to recover before my kickbox. you know how long normally it takes to recover before we can do gym?
Szecare, your daughter looks so much like you!
Reading an article.. Full milk Production is 25 oz aday!! Kaoz when will I ever reach there
My baby will also latch on and doze off and very hard to wake him up when he in deep sleep... some times when he drinks till no more milk he will automatic let go and cry. If i pump out only got the most 100ml. Only able to last my baby one feed.
I also very sainz every day at home and in pajamas and sick of the soh clothes too... the only place i go is KK Hospital for check up. I can pull up the jeans but cant button. so upset.
This Sunday is my last week of confinement. wah "SI BEH" sick of the food i have been eating.
Ha ha piggyhui!! Finally you coming to an end!! Congrats! Ask Hubby go celebrate!! Me still another damn week to go in damn ahsoh clothes. Once I pretend not enough long pants, mother in law say she lend me her.. Ha ha than I say nvm I go find again!
Erm, can I ask why must b in long pants? I'm usually in boxers at home. I remembered for my 1st confinement, my late mom in law gave me a bewildered look when I woke up for breakfast in boxers. She asked if I wasn't cold... Errr, but i was sweating in my sleep; not sure why then , but heard later that red dates longan tea was heaty...she made that for me everyday without fail... She didnt force me to follow confinement dos and donts though, as long as I'm comfortable, and not pushing myself...
Haa no celebration... but wants to go out and buy new jeans. So upset my jeans all can pull up but cant button. My hip bone big already. Upset....
Good news for me is after confinement finish this week, my hubby promise to bring me watch "SMURFS" next Saturday. JY time will pass very fast .
I can't even pull up any jeans!! But still keeps them.. Hoping that one day I can fit in again I got quite alot of new clothes which I order before I know I am preg.. Now I can wear them some still need to wait awhile more anyway so good.. Can go Kai Kai shopping . me next week.. Hope to go out to do my hair nice nice before full month on sat I also wanna look good! Hope time flies faster... Friday, sat, sun... Counting away.
HAve you contacted any of the massage lady to do massage and jamu wrap for you? My masage lady say after 3 months, skin start to harden and tougher to get back in shape . My session ending tomorrow.. but i will stil put corset everyday for the next one month.
I can't bargain to go out at night unless is to hospital... been missing so many events this month. Thank god i can go for my jacky concert. Hee.. :P
you will be able to fit in to your jeans again... give yourself a bit more time.
Your baby shower also on Sat? So we basically aiming towards the same day to get 'released'. Haha. I am so happy, my confinement lady say i can wash hair once every 3-4 days now but not everyday. To me, its still a blessing cause my mother in law initially say whole month cannot wash. I was like... (disgusted) all day.
My facebook is firstname.lastname@example.org. We shall catch up someday soon ya before our maternity leave ends.
Hmm, for breastfeeding, it works for me this way...
I pump my milk at 4am everyday for my CL to feed my ger when im having massage in the morning. Yield about 100ml both sides.
Then i latch in the morning once at 7am and once at 9.30am. My massage starts at 10am. So in between if my ger hungry, she will feed on my expressed milk. I will pump again around 12-1pm or after lunch and yield about 120ml-150ml. Then my ger will feed on the express milk in the afternoon. She takes in between 90ml to 110ml each time. After i shower in the afternoon, i wll latch on whenever she is hungry. If she sleeps for >2 hours, i will express out my breast milk and store. So basically i start to get busy from evening onwards, cause have to latch her almost every hour. Sometimes i also doubt myself not producing enough milk for her and my in laws will keep saying baby not full after feeding.. I dont't care.. just keep latching whenever she wants, regardless i have milk or not. I just hope that after one of the latching, she will doze off to sleep and give me some peace.
The key thing with bf is dont't give up... stay positive and relax when you r expressing. If your volume is low, it probably means your baby is taking in more when you latch, so what you are expressing is just the balance. Tell yourself, once you clear the balance, your breast will produce full volume again. Jia you k.
Purpeace your full month for your baby also this saturday ar?
Mine is this saturday. I am looking forward to this weekend.. yes tml is friday already. =)
Your confinement also ends 17th Sep? Or you push the celebration earlier cause the actual day falls on weekday?
My CL calculated mine is exactly 30 days from baby birthday (19 Aug), so 17 Sep is exactly 1 month.
As for the massage, i also only started after 2 weeks.. still can see results. It's subjective actually.. if you feel body aching and want some massage to relax then go for it. If not, i think bf-ing will help to lose weight also, just hang in there.
