must be patient with the milk flow. my milk came pretty late. initially was only a few drops.. then the engorgement that was so terrible that i cant sleep n tears kept flowing out of my eyes.. took panadols and finally able to sleep. same here i drink a lot of water and soup and massage. CL told me some milk come very fast and some come very slow for different people. but important is must always let baby suckle or pump out to stimulate the flow. now i managed to from few drops turn into 60ml of milk. still not enough for my baby though so i put him on breastmilk(direct suckle) then feed formula.
jia you! jia you!
take panadols to ease the engorgement pain. as for crack nipple, i strongly recommend you to try medala purelan 100. was recommended by Kandang Kerbau Hospital nurse. i tried it and find it really good. it heals my nipple very fast. also it is edible. but i always make sure that i wipe my nipple to clean off the cream before feeding as i dont want my nipple milk holes to be block. i realised the more i feed or pump, i started to have more milk holes opening up slowly.
Me also same ... 5 days then got milk n 1st 2 days cant pump out much also, only few drops, n was down with flu n cough make me want to give up more.
On the 8th days then got more milk about every 1 hour can feel the milk but every pump is only abit so have to pump 4-5 times then got 40ml-60ml...
Btw, no worries Chelle... Formula is as good ... my 1st one i also never BF.. give my gal formula...
Mummies... Here we are, reporting.
After 12 hours of labour, our little boy was borned on 17th June, 9.01pm. Normal with epi.
Like most mummies, baby refused to latch on at the hospital, had to supplement with forumla. Now, at home, only got a few miserable drops of breastmilk. Still persisting.
Lets jia you for each other!
ya i onli pump once per day now. really tiring. after pump i sweat like mad. wt this stupid weather i cannot tahan aso. i on the aircon wen i pump.
i feed her formula and she vvvvvv punctual. 2hours 1 time 80ml.. 60 not enuff for her.
tht bf was easy... bt with the pain and the work to pump/feed... think i 2 more weeks after confinement i stop.
sigh... same here. i thought that bf is easy.... ... but i cant give up because i ever have enzema and both my hubby n i have sinuses. so it is better for me to continue bf no matter what... have to make baby stronger.
i stop drinking red dates .. i got cough and i dont drink enuff water first week.. i dont like the taste and i also find it very heaty.
now i drink hot water. they say next time your stomach or tummy will be big.
sometimes i dont know want to trust what old pple say. but they always say they experience before, tell us is see we want follow or not.
but to me i think if you are not feeling well now, you shud stick to what you prefer... later constipation get worst.
Any more havent give birth June mummy??
Mummies, if you scare red dates tea too heaty i recomend another tea which is suitable also.
Highlanders Brown Rice tea, i brought fr "si lu" but my dear husband say can get fr provision shop also.
I ever saw it at NTUC also.
Its not heaty n can help digestion...
