My girl have shown improvements in her milk intake. Thank the few patient teacher carrying her to feed her. She doesn't drink when put down. Really tar crazy Jie aka princess. She's drinking 70-80ml every 3hr now. If total 7 feedings I think 490ml-550ml isn't that bad.

I also feel lazy to prepare ebm at night rather latch but I think I'm giving teacher a hard time to feed her. Even teacher is getting worried she drinking so little compared to peers. People drinking 100 every 2 hour.
She can actually play with nuk teat, I see her sucking for 1 min pretty strong suck but never see bubbles in bottle. When I remove to see only 5 ml.
She can even blow the teat or dont know what she does the milk flow our from air vent.
Whomovedmycheese and Kikilow, does your nuk bottle have such flow out from vent when baby drink?
I wanted to speed the flow but nuk only have 0-6 and 6-12. Pls advise.
Azzzima, what do you mean by compensate back by feeding remaining by bottle?
Does pigeon have various level teat size rather than bounded by 0-6 months?
I might just grab a pigeon wide neck to test.
I seriously need to do something to get my girl to be able to drink more from bottle.
Does M size teat for milk helps? Arggh the nuk teat guideline quite restrictive. S for breast milk and only got 2 level... Even avent and dr brown got newborn level and infant level. Pass 3 months no longer newborn already.
Happen to see this kellymom.com :: How much expressed milk will my baby need?
Puts my heart at ease a little.
My boy jx wasted 90ml of my ebm.. So naughty..
Hopefully too.. Miss my pre preg boobs.. Now so pointy n saggy..
Some more my boy like to suck one side specifically during his first month.. Now one side big n one side small.. So sad
Poor sleepy head. She used to sleep 5 hours at home in the day now only bout 1.5 hours in total at center. Hope she will get used to the noise like rest of the kiddos there.
Hmm for eg baby drinks 400ml each day. Let s say she drinks 140ml when the mum is at work. She ll drink the balance at night. I think they know how much they are drinking daily so it s up to us to feed them accordingly.
Like for instance my baby drinks alot in the day. At night she ll just take snacks.
Hmm hope you understand what I am trying to say. That s what I think. Cld be wrong but it s based on my observation.
Oh I read your link so I observed correctly. Was bored so did some calculation haha. Glad you re relieved. I understand your worries as I ve been there too. That s the thing about latching on. Not sure how to see if baby s eating enough not. So now we know. Hehe. Take care and try not to worry too much. Same goes to me and the rest of the mummies here. Maybe if any of us has another baby, we ll know what to expect.

i think baby know how to count their daily intake. Like in the day i fed my gal more , eg. 100ml-110ml, if she finished it, when come to night feed before her sleeping time, she just take in about 70ml or less, so total for her each day at most can go up to only 600ml, she never exceed 700ml per day, but she will keep herself daily intake between 500ml to 600ml.. amazing..
Isy, you can try S size teat for 6-8month? Since your gal can cope with fast flow..
My gal know how to scream for milk or scream when she is frustrated.. very loud, untill i surrender to her..
I also miss my pre-preggy boobs.. i used to have small size boob, now seems like very big there, clothes can feed bottom but tight on top, feel uneasy.
My friend who just successfully wean her 1 yr old gal from sucking her breast, said she miss the latching so much. When your gal see your boobs and have no interest on it, i think we will feel abit sad tht time..
Times flies very fast, this will be over very soon unless no 2 is on the way
ganbate all mummies
Hi azzzima, yes understand on the reverse cycling. But I dont't think I have chance to latch her that often as she falls asleep by 8:30pm every night. Wake up 6 or 7 am. The dreamfeed twice is I put to her. I think if I were to give her pacifier she'll still sleep. Let say she's taking 100 x2. Then plus day feed average 60x4=240 total 440ml in 24hrs.
I would rather she takes more during day and together sleep through the night. dont't mind comfort nurse her.At least I have a target to pump, otherwise the transition for our boobs so difficult. I shall try bigger teat size first.
Hi icejelly I have given the teacher M teat 0-6 today together with S. Shall see any difference.
The nuk classification for 6-12 months seems like bigger teats to adjust to her mouth not sure any difference in both S teats for the 2 sizes. I drink and test couldn't really tell the difference lol.
May I know how do you all clean your pump parts when outside?
So heavy to carry my pump around plus cooler bag and bottles
Yes, it is very heavy. Every time I go out it's like I going for a short holiday. A lot of things to pack. Btw, are you using the Avent via cup to store? Must be careful. Yesterday mine spilled out quite a bit.
