No, I dont't drink DOM or any alcohol.
He is too sleepy to latch on, after a while he fall back to sleep.
Now I pump it out, also to relieve the breast, if not engorgement soon, now is already warm and swollen.
When will new born be aggressive to drink?
Omg hotmilktea, I have exactly the same prob as you! My baby has jaundice so he tends to be very sleepy. During the first week we discharged from hospital, I tried all my best but he just drink a few min n fall asleep. I was so depressed that I cried n cried. Every evening, I cried.
I called parent craft and BMSG counsellor. The BMSG counsellor is excellent! Her name is Eveline n she taught me to compress my breast like expressing milk into baby's mouth when he's sleepy. That will stimulate him to drink. Try only when you c that he has stopped. dont compress too much.
She also taught me to not keep baby too warm n snuggy, can unswaddle him, keep his legs free, tickle his ears n legs when he fall asleep etc.
Now my baby does not look so yellowish n he's drinking more. But he is still a small eater, sometimes 10 or 20min per feed is enough for him. My milk flow tends to b faster on one of my breast so I guess counting min isn so accurate a gauge. I pumped out my breast n it seems in 10min, a lot of milk can be pumped out already so I'm not too worried.
The parent craft counsellor isn so good. She insisted that I must wake my baby up n feed him 30min per breast per feed. I was like huh! I'm faced with a sleepy baby... 20min of feed is already very good, moreover my baby was only 1 week old then! She made me more depressed, as I tried desperately to feed him 30min n cried when he dont feed 30min
Now my baby is more awake n he can feed whenever I wake him up 2 hourly but he will drink little bit. In evening, he will suddenly drink a lot like 30-40min before he goes to sleep for the night. I'm also not sure y but I just feed on demand and go with his flow...
Oh n congrats on the birth of your darling baby!

Hi lyra, thanx for sharing your tips!
For some reasons I dont't knw y, my boy suddenly turns so hungry and keep on sucking my breasts for milk this morning at 3am.
I was about to go warm the milk but since he is crying so hard I tried to let him suckle, glad it works.
My breast same as you, 1 side faster/more flow. Whenever he suck or I pump 1 side, the other side will keep flowing , very wasteful I feel.
And my breast also keep leaking milk, I refuse to wear bra coz it makes me feel so breathless.
Btw, my baby is day 5 today, he hasn't poo at all. His last poo is on hospital on Sat. Isn't because he wasn't feeding well since sun till today that's y no poo? When can I expect poo? He did pee and there are traces of bilirubin.
Hmm what is traces of bilirubin in urine like? My baby poo green bits of poo mixed with some yellow at first n I think it's due to bilirubin too. Now it's mustard yellow colour. I heard from breastfeeding talks that if total breastfeed baby did not poo, it's common bcoz they digest the milk so well that there's no waste produced but of course it's better to check.
Maybe you can give BMSG a call? The counsellor may not b able to return your call immediately but they will.
you can stand not wearing bra? Haha. My milk keeps dripping, wetting my shirt n my bed so I must have bra n pad on all day. At nite, I'll air dry the nipples for awhile.
Glad to know baby is suckling well! Hope your baby gets better soon!
I am having bad engrossment till armpit as I though baby latch on is enough.
Went to hospital for Advice on the feeding. Nurse say I am too full with milk ask me full breastfeed.... But sometime baby cry n cry n reject hiks. Having hard time as sometime he want formula milk maybe it fast sucking from bottle but sometime he reject n want breast milk. When he is too hungry he want both. Hmmm...
I realize baby will mostly fall asleep after latch on but will still awake after drink forumla milk, is it true? Or it just coinicident ?
Hi mummies, I have 1 motherlove more milk plus to let go at $50 incl postage. 120 capsules. Expiry 06/2016. PM me if you're interested.
are you eat ginger as you breastfeeding the babies? my 2 weeks old baby got Janice also, the doctor ask dont't breastfeed the baby if I eat ginger. unless I stop taking ginger.
anyone know why fever during confinement?
Is this what old people said 'air go into body'? Or breastmilk blocked?
Anyone faced before? Can share the experience.
Did you see any redness on yr breast? I had fever/ cold on and off for almost a week during confinement and later confirmed that it was early stage of Mastitis..need to see doctor and take antibiotics to totally recover.
Go and consult doctor if unsure. Take care!
Lyra, now I knw y you so happy that time when you dear boy poo poo.
My boy poo poo last night and today I am so happy! Haha .
Hi! I dont take ginger at all now that baby has jaundice. you should avoid ginger too. Few of my relatives say nvm it's ok to take ginger when breastfeeding jaundice baby but they r not the breastfeeding generation, and the nurse at childbirth edu class specifically say cannot, so y risk baby's health?
Hi delivered my girl 8 days ago, my breast milk fr two side is only about 60ml max.
I find it too little, how many ml are you all getting?
I delivered my baby Gal on 9.10.11 (Natural Birth with Epidural), baby weight 3.6 kgs at birth. Now Am feeding my baby both Breast Milk and formula as my current milk supply is not enough for my baby gal. Total pump from both breast (with 3 to 6 hours interval) is about 80ml to 120ml and each feeding would consume approx. 60ml to 80ml.
how long we need to register baby name? 14 day or 1 month?
I took panadol too fever went off but came back the next day so better take antibiotic. Tell doc tht you r breastfeeding n he will prescribe the appropriate medicine for you. dont drag further like I did cos it onlymakes matter worse.
