Hi Joanne, yup, the lactation consultant die die ask me feed 30min but I think by 15min he can drink a lot . If 30min won't that be too much for him? I scared him dont get the hind milk so I pumped out quite a bit first so that he gets some fore milk and hind milk.
I now take care to burb him well and ensure he has no sucking sound when drinking so that he will not vomit so much. Now he only "vomit" a bit of milk that trickles down his chin. I guess that's a reflex due to weak stomach muscles.
Does anyone newborn baby sometimes breathe loudly?
Like heavy breathing like that.
yes my newborn was like that... especially the first 2 weeks... then now just after 1 month you wont notice any heavy breathing..
Maybe can try cleaning his nostrils with tissue? Sometimes could be blocked...
is your baby always hiccup? my baby keep hiccup, sometime can be 10 times for a days.
I cant remember the name of antibiotic, sorry for late reply. but i thought normally GP would know which antibiotics to prescribe for breastfeeding mum. I read somewhere that actually even under medication it's ok to breastfeed, it's up to you end of the day.
My baby tend to hiccup after feed too, quite regular. I think it's ok.
dont clean baby's nostrils yourself! you may hurt his delicate skin. If his heavy breathing is bothering you or baby, you can bring him to a doc who can prescribe saline water n an apparatus to suck out the mucous. Hope baby is getting better!
I actually do double confirm with my gp for the medicine. but he said if breastfeeding, the. antibiotic will went to my breastmilk, he cannot ensure baby won't sensitive with the antibiotic.
I feel better now, wondering can I stop the antibiotic.
do you think should I stop?
Does anyone feel painful at the vagina area and where we pee?
I dont feel pain when I pee but overall the whole area feel sore.
Is it becoz also I hasn't recover frm my stitches?
Hotmilktea, just keep washing with water. I wash each time I go toilet and change my pad after every toilet visit.
Now my wound has recovered not painful already, just tender. Today is my 12th day post delivery
I had the worst wound coz besides episiotomy, i had a really bad tear. So on the first night, when the epidural effect wears off, the pain was so terrible that I couldn't sleep n the pain killer had little effect. The wound site was swollen too and it hurts when I pee. Couldn't pass motion at all.
I used the medication the hospital gave me to clean my wound every time I go toilet. I alsod use sitz bath n sit in salt water to help the wound heal.
Same here, after epidural wear off slowly, I feel a bit of pain and I asked for pain relief straightaway before the full pain kicks in. Luckily I did that coz nurse took like 20-30mins to give me and then the drugs need time to kick effect too! And I feel do pek cek that I cldnt talk to my friends who visited me! and worse, I dunnoe why I must pee, 6 hours after delivery cannot walk, they give me a pan, I still can't and got to walk to toilet to pee, and it took like 20mins for me to pee. So strange feeling.
Btw, can mummies share how much they lose their weight right after confinement? My mum n relatives keep tellin me to eat and eat and eat! Say after confinement then lose, but how!!!!! Eat so much how to lose . I have lost about 5kg now, still looooooooong way :x
A week after delivery, I lost half the weight I gained during preg. I gained about 12kg. Now, I have not measured yet. Maybe I'll weigh myself later today. I dont know where the weighing machine is... Staying at in law's place...
I think it's good we dont try to slim down now coz we need to breastfeed baby n breastfeeding uses up a lot of energy. I feel hungry all the time. I went to childbirth class n the nutritionist say the amt of nutrition intake for lactating moms is the same for preg moms so we should still continue our preg diet to give baby enough nutrients. But of course if we breastfeed, we'll slim down faster.
Yah, I lost about half also, I gained 11.5kg. I feel hungry too but sometime too hot to eat anything.
Btw, does anyone feel nipple sore? I think lately my boy suck too hard as compared to few days ago.
So now both very sore and I using breast milk and nipple cream, but seems quite useless.
