I am going to see pediatrician next week too, so can ask..
i also wonder what is the consequences if baby dont drink..
I see most mummies mentioning that their babies can sleep 5-8hrs a night. Why can't my pui pui do e same? In fact these few nights, he has been waking up every 2hrs for milk! Maybe it's growth spurt. Hopefully it is... Already he can't tahan more than 3-4hrs without milk...but every 2hrs is making me so tired again....
Btw, any mummies wanna add me to facebook, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
I can understand how you mummies feel about e invasion of privacy. In fact my very own mum also always come into my room without warning, play w pui when i'm trying to put him to bed or close my door very loudly n make baby jump. When my Bro in law goes to work, i'll bf in e living room as it's more airy n i can watch tv. But my mum always forgets that n bring my relatives home without informing me. Think it's a 'senior citizen' thing... They Cannot...Will Not...Do Not... remember all these....
Mummies, let's not ever do it to our daughters, daughters in law next time! Kekeke!!
Another good news I just fed her another 80ml just now at home. She takes medium flow well. It's the teat flow problem. I think nuk m 0-6 still slow for her.
But I would advise you change to bigger teat flow and coax her to try again yourself. dont't be like me let her go hungry only to find out. Trust your mother instinct. Our instinct knows best.
. I think I will stick to pigeon. Today first time feeding her drink at 1 go 80ml twice using pigeon.
Yesterday after I bought it also fed her twice 50ml. Will monitor for another day or two.
My mom scolded me for giving her slow flow. I said I follow the packing guide and online says bf must keep to slowest to work baby jaw muscle. Haha then she say I crazy to follow crazy guidelines set by non experience people. She tell me as long as baby when drinking flow too fast will leak from mouth and choke one. If she can cope with fast let her be. Then she even say our breast got so many holes to spray milk , bottle teat only 1 hole . True also lol
Ok, will try your method, my nuk teat is S size still, go to buy M and pigeon tomorrow. Hope my next attempt at 1 hr later can see some progress.
Bbanna any good news from your feeding.
I plan to have breast strike when my mum is here. At least she can help me feed and I'll concentrate to pump and wash and sterilize. Objective is to see how much and how often she is drinking in 24hrs. I'm not sure if thesis a good idea. Scared later reverse effect she won't latch then end up I got blocked duct then difficult also. Maybe only for 2 days is ok ya?
