Hopefully it will get better after some malay urut n shift my womb back in place.
Medela I think Esther wanted to sell one right? How's the Ameda that you r using?
To all mummies doing massages currently, do you all do jamu or traditional malay massage?
The one with pilis on forehead n some herbs in abdomen is jamu right? I dont favor that as it smells n IMO not suitable for bf. What do you think?
I'm currently trying another lady I think is normal oil massage plus push back womb.
The cloth binder dont't have those stringy type. Never massage breast but did teach me how to unblock ducts. I think she never massage breast coz we will be bf constantly.
How bout your current service by your masseur? Can anyone comment if I'm getting a real massage package?
whomovedmycheese- Congrats to you!! So happy that your labour was short n sweet!
bbanna- hope your turn will come soon!
Hi all mummies, i went for check up this morning and doc says fluid has reduced n placenta is getting over-matured.
So i'll be admitting to KK tonite at 1am to be induced.
Shall hope for e best!
Hi all mummies,
My baby is admitted to hospital A&E due to jaundice again.. his level went up to 308
this morning.. after doing a series of checks at hospital, the doc suggest us to bring
baby hm for a day.. He gave me two options.. that is to feed half FM and half BF.. another is to completely feed FM for two days.. I dont know what to do.. although I wish to persist on bf but everyone I consulted say to feed FM for these two days and tts what I m gonna do.. since the level is soooo high..
However the doc say dont ever give up BF.. even if baby got nipple confusion..
And I am very upset with my mother in law, I told her to stop ginger, wine and chinese herbs long ago.. She said ok.. but she still put aloooot of ginger in all the dishes I ate.. And my soup always got wolfberries, and last nite she soak the pig kidney in wine! Faints* She told me only after I ate.. And just now at hospital, the doc warn my mother in law to stop putting ginger in all the dishes.. she finally listen
sigh.. I hate jaundice
your hubby is there to support your BF but my hubby say feed FM for these 2 days cos my baby Juandice is really high @ 308.. :'(
But the doc say I still must pump every 2-3 hours to keep my supply up.. sigh.. Just now I pumped, I am able to express 200ml of Breast milk..
I dont know whether ginger will affect or not but the doc at Kandang Kerbau Hospital A&E say to stop ginger completely for me..
O man.. I m gonna miss bonding time w him these 2 days.. Just hope he doesnt reject me after two days
thanks kikilow n sparklingstars.....
i've been waiting for a long while but still feel disappointed that i did so much exercise but still failed to deliver on time.
sigh..... what to do? such things cannot predict.
all you mummies jia you on bf k....
dont give up and remember whatever we do is for e good of our babies!
Hi all ,
disappeared for a while, i delivered on 19 May, 24 hours labour, admit on 18 May.
I got slow dilation, in the end i gave up n use epidural after 12 hours of endurance..
I was very distress in the delivery room, the anxiety and the tiredness.. made me cried few times .. as doc said if my dilation is very slow after epi, i have to go through c sec.. so i was praying that i could go for natural birth..
Luckily that i was able to dilate faster than before then i had assisted delivery with forcep .. coz long labour, no energy to push.. and i developed fever also..
Now i am coping with the motherhood life.. trying to settle down ..
other mummies jia you!
I dont know bout ginger but doc say its best to avoid them..
as for wolfberries, I also not sure can or not but now as I am very paranoid w what I put inside my mouth,
I would play safe to stop everything that could be a possible cause of BF jaundice..
rem k.. keep your diet simple and dont eat alot of heaty stuffs if you r BF
and yep, I will contd to BF no matter what.. hope baby can accept BF after the two days!! lols
Sparkling star, my baby was on mix fm n breast milk for a week upon discharge. Thank god she got no nipple confusion. I just started exclusive bf since last 3/4 days.I'm sure your baby will not reject you.
Wow you ladies are good can pump 200 ml. I couldn't exPress well using my manual pump. Using my hand I can only get 50-60ml. At times 30 ml.
Any idea how to store separate session of those little excess milk?
If you have alot of stuffs in your freezer or if ppl around you open the door pretty often, the milk can last bout 1 mnth
But if you do not have alot of items in freezer then the breast milk can store for max 3 mnths..
I use electric pump, if I use hand or manual.. I dont think I can express that much as well..
yah you re right. but i would like to have warranty. for me, ameda is pretty good. but hard to say cos it s the first and only breast pump i ve used so far. hehe..
i hate jaundice too. dont be sad ok. you can express your breast milk and feed him when he gets better and have reached about 1mth old. wishing your son a speedy recovery. i know how you feel. but jaundice is very common so try not to be too upset k. about mother in law, hard to stop them from doing things their way.. it s not like our own mother. well since she listened, then thank goodness. hehe. smile and be positive
in fact hubby almost bought fm. i was very upset and it didnt help that my mum and mum in law wants me to give her fm too. they all pity my daughter being poked each week. i know it s tough. but i cant bring myself to feed her by bottle cos of the bonding during bf. i hope it wasnt a selfish act on my part. but dont compare with my situation cos her highest level was 274. it didnt exceed 300. thus it s good you re gonna feed your baby fm. anything to help lower the level. i was pretty emo when she wasnt with me for 2 nights. be patient ok. can always go and visit your baby.

congrats. 24 hours labour. that s very tough. glad you got to have natural birth. keep on trying.
i m still learning too. bit by bit. alot of trial and error. nowadays she tends to cry on and off from 7pm to about 11pm. and i had to carry her and let her suckle till she falls asleep cos i am scared neighbours get irritated. but i m trying to stop her habit cos it s draining for me to hold her for about 15 - 20 mins every hour or so and i cant do other things. her cries are the loud and scary type. like i assume ppl will think i am abusing her. hehe. i always panicked when she cries and we re outside. perhaps 1st time mum so i m a bit kanchiong. hehe.

My baby girl poped yesterday afternoon ( 25 may)
I started to feel contraction after going sleep at 11.30pm. Went to hospital at 3am, ve checked by nurse, already 2cm, it was 3 am at that time..
My following 12 hours is so suffering. I had a long and painful labor even with epi at 4.30am . The epi dose not work on me at all, when my dr came to break water bag at8.30 am, it's still 2cm and I screamed while checking. They increased the epi dosage from 10 to 14, I still feel treerble pain at right side all the while, left side has no feeling. anaesthetist came at 10.30 am to check my back, put even stronger epi with max dosage 15., Till 11am ++ , i still have no prograss still at 2cm. I cried thought I must go for c-sec later. However after a while, mircal started to happen, not sure if the new epi or the gas made me starting to feel mind blur and sleepy. I still woke up to deep breath becos contraction pain every 2-3 mins. At 12.30pm, I was 7cm already in this hr. my contrAction was more stronger and a lot of pain every 2 mins. By about 1.30 pm, my both legs totally has no feeling and I heard nurse said I'm fully dialacted. I started to push, but can only see baby hair go out and go in again. Eventually dr came in, he used vacuum while I was pushing, after a few push, baby head came out and he pulled out baby body while next contraction. Then I heard baby crying, I always thought I will cry when i see baby, but I didn't at that moment, perhaps becos still in very blur feeling.
I'm recovering now, have to work hard on bf.
