Lonerjas: Hope that you can bring your baby back soon. It must feel terrible to be separated from the baby.
Congrats to all Oct mummies!
lonerjas: good good..baby is back w you.. abo you let him shine morning sun .. the traditional way...
pokarudotza mummy: go give birth already?? never see her post..
My nipples are sore and bleeding... sigh.. How to heal faster so can BF arghz.. stop later no supply how?? I hate it. Baby in hospital too long now i like not much supply liaoz.
Apply medela nipple cream but is not healing enuff for me to BF.. sianzzz
you can give more feeds to trigger more supply ( that is what i doing ) If really not enuff i will supplement formula too. Cos my baby jaudice need drink more milk to poo and pee ( flush out jaudice )
Usually 1st week supply is low:
1st to 3days is COlostrum
about 4 to 6 days or so is transition milk ( very low supply also )
then is followed by breast milk ( will increase as you nurse )
dont give up keep nursing. If sore like me express out to feed ( but i prefer latch on )
For those i express out i will pour into formula give my gal or boi. Anyway i not much to store alwiz express 10 to 20ml nia LOL
Sore and crack nipple still can pump?
I also pump out since lacth on is so painful for me...
My milk flow increase these 2 days increase from 20ml to 50ml..
But still not enough for my boy.
His intake is about 80ml each feeding, so I will let my baby drink my breast milk than additional with formula milk...
same same my boy also drk about 80ml..
maybe you apply cream or there's some nipple lotion 1..
that time i also abit sore n lil bleed,he suck till skin bit peel.. i also renn n let him latch..
then worst is he latch on left side dont like to latch on right side.. so right side i pump out and standby..store milk milk for him..
just now my boy throw up everything he drank.. cos my mother in law never burp properly..sad..throw up on me siahh.. sigh.. change his clothes.. wanna drk agn.. this time i burp him.. then now he slpg ... ZZzzZZZ

when my 1stborn was under light with eyes covered like ultraman i also feel like crying suddenly but embarrased infront of nurses so tahan..when i the pediatrician ask me to admit my gal coz high jaundice i also cry... then when i went back home and see baby cot empty i also cry haha... i feel like in a bollywood movie.
last time the doc advised me to drink prune juice so can go toilet easily.
but i eat apple secretly coz inlaw say can't eat fruit...but who can tahan, so many heaty stuff...
I'm doing confinement. Only bathe once a week. Thinking of wiping my body later with warm water. So ley chey...
Anyway, my boy' skin is very dry. Anyone has recommendations on baby lotions that are good for moisturising the thought?
Balance diet at home. Vege i take brocoli ( no cabbage ) i try take more fish ( steam promfret ) Most heaty stuff i took was my vinegar ginger trotter and sesame oil chicken.
reach home, take no vege so everyday eat meat, n fish n chicken all with ginger. fried rice also with ginger... oil use sassame oil.. liver soup w/ vinegar...i like it thou but few days can't poo haha..

I have delivered my boy on 20 October 2009. He weighed 3.6kg and measured 51cm in length. Now busy with breastfeeding... supply is quite good. From the initial 20-30ml each pumping session, I can now manage about 120ml each session (pump every 4-5 hourly). I also latch him on sometimes.
