To all bf mummies,
Just to share.. I experienced extreme engoregement on my breast the third day
and no matter I use hot or cold compess or pump out milk, it still hurts..
I was in sooo much pain that I was gg to give up.. luckily a malay massage lady who
was supposed to help me w pstnatal massage help me clear my blocked milk ducts as well..
It was extremely painful but you will feel sooooo relieved after that.. and milk flow is definitely smoother..
breastfeeding is really not as ez as it seems..my boy latched incorrectly and my nipple bleed.. but to all mummies, dont ever give up!!
After gg to toilet, I use boiled drinkng water to clea the wound then dry it w toilet paper..keeping it dry is impt..
After doing big business..lols.. I use boiled drinkin water, put in a water bottle and spray on the backside..
after that pat dry.. dont use toilet paper to rub, just pat..
May I know what did you all ask hospital to feed baby? Fully bf or mix? I am currently using both coz I'm too hot n pain to bf every 2 hours. Tested my milk level via pump that day pathetic 5 ml both side. Guess milk not in yet. How bout the rest? Any idea how to increase milk flow?
My milk came at third day n it was extremely painful cos badly
engorged.. So do stock up on cold cabbage leaves asap!!
for me I told the hospital I want fully bf n cup feeding (enfalac)
so as to avoid nipple confusion..
First week supply will not b alot but it will subsequently increase
no worries ya! Mummies perservere!!
HI mummies, i just came back from hospital , got spotting this morning, doc did ve check and i only dilate 0.5cm .. and contraction is oredi 7 - 8 mins apart..
