My husband pro breast milk so that explains why he bothers.
Hehe... Maybe you can make him get more involved. Sent email or what hahahaha so he might read up.
Anyway I have finally reached my destination. But it s raining heavily. Lesson learnt must check weather as well. I was desperate so used nursing cover while alighting the bus. Now the journey back. Wish me luck. Anyway NIE nursing room is very very very good. Very clean n spacious.
Actually all our hubby are nice just that some of them is the kind that more involved and read up themselves, some learn by listening, some listen already forget but willing to help. My hubby 3rd type that's what makes me boiled.
When I was in the labour ward.. my hubby was busy helping me with the fever plaster.. flip and flip.. I told him he shall be the commander and I just listen to what he ask me to do..
Do your babies like to put their hands in their mouths? My baby keeps doing that.
Isy.. How many times does your girl feed every day?
Let me see these 2 days I think she got cluster feed in the late afternoon guess to prepare for her 9:30pm sleep.
In 24 hours about 7-8 times latch bout 5-10 mins. Feeding time interval still not fixed at 3 hours though I wanted it to be. Somewhere 2-4 hours. I never feed ebm now. Only 2-3 times since last 2 weeks. She can drink bout 70-80 ml during the time I feed her ebm.
Oh almost forget she also 2-3 times snacking of 1-2 mins latch coz at times I see 3 hours try to offer her but she still dont't want. Or I offer when I dont know why she cried, then when she dont't want then I know she wants to nap
I love my 3am pump. Hehe whole day latching can hardly see anything when pump. Yesterday night before sleep only have 20ml each side. 3am 1 side got 120ml so satisfying. But only 1 side coz the other side latch my girl girl already.
Have your supply stabilized? If you pump every 3 hours vs every 4 hours any difference in ml?
Yes it helps abit. But most importantly feeling relaxed plays a huge part in expressing the milk. I have managed to pump 20ml. Will keep up with pumping frequently.
I feel like bringing my baby where ever I go cos I am going back to work very soon. thought of bringing her out with me again later. But I have yet to bring her out with stroller. Must plan out the journey carefully. But thank God there are good people who helped me yesterday. If not I ll be more tired. The only thing that backfire was I need to pee and I was alone. So had to hurry home. All is good getting more confident in handling her alone.
