my baby's umbilical cord just drop, but there are some 'residue' inside the belly button, like black black stuff. sld i clean it with the alcohol swap?
Coz if suck, I cannot monitor how much he is drinking. He drinks way too little. Only max 40ml for breast milk or formula.
I dont't know how hospital can do 60ml.
How much your girl drinking per feed in hw many hours?
I didn't full BF, I will gv about 2 formula. 1 thing I find it strange is bilirubin is expel by poo or pee. But my son constipate when drink formula,
Then how to expel? And I feel nothing can beat breastmilk. I think my pediatrician is not pro- BF, tats y first thing is ask me stop BF.
And the irony thing is, his checkup on tues is 13.1, and yet pediatrician say nx appt is nx
month. Hw you expect a new mum like me to monitor? what if my son went up till 26 again?
I am going to change pediatrician.
my girl drink 110 ml for 3 to 3.5 hours since she was 2 weeks old.
is you eat ginger? as I know, if we eat ginger, then should not breastfeeding the baby.
if you feel uncomfortable for the jaunice, you may go to polyclinic. they will keep follow up till the Jaundice below 100 level.
Hotmilktea, breastfeeding does not require you to monitor how much baby is drinking. That will only give you unnecessary stress. Besides each baby is unique so someone's baby can drink 100ml every 3 hr but your baby can drink 50ml every 2 hr n that's perfectly fine. When your baby suck, the amt he suck is diff from amt you pump out so it's not accurate gauge also.
you r right, nothing can beat breastmilk... Maybe you go to the pediatrician I went to? Dr Ong EK of International Child n Adolescent Clinic. If he's not around, can look for Dr Koh too. The pediatrician I initially went to also not very breastfeeding friendly. My baby jaundice lvl 11.5 when discharged. She asked me to give water n formula milk at night. I never heed her advice n give total breastfeeding n changed a pediatrician of course. Breast milk will help clear jaundice n keep your baby healthy. But if your baby jaundice lvl too high to dangerous lvl, they will advice you to stop breastfeeding for awhile. you can seek second opinion n c if you should stop or continue breastfeeding.
Guess I really need to fatten up my boy fast! Thanx Lyra, I will consider your pediatrician, really annoyed me with anti-BF pediatrician.
Now I am feeding my boy more BF, but I pump out to monitor his intake, only let him suckle when I need to sooth him to sleep.
Btw mummies, how mch weight did you all lose? Today is my 2nd week after delivery, I lost 6kg. But really flabby tummy and very top heavy.
I dunnoe how to lose it off man. Feel sad when I see my wedding pic in jan this yr. so much diff! If go back to my wedding weight I got 7 kg to work , if not is 5kg. But even lose also wun be the same anymore :x
My baby is down with cough and flu.
I stayed awake until 4+am to take care of him, cannot even latch him lying down cause he cannot latch long since his nose is blocked and he's breathing through his mouth.
Put him down in his own crib, he woke up within 10 mins crying again.
P.s. I until now have not't weighed myself. I still cannot fit into my pre pregnancy clothes -.-" Am wearing ugly auntie nursing wear
15-20min sounds good. In the breastfeeding book I bought, it says baby should nurse 20-30min to get the hind milk. Every baby is diff. Mine varies his feeding throughout the day. Sometimes he just take 5-10min n falls asleep, sometimes he go on for 30-45min. I just tell myself sometimes he's just thirsty or wants mummy's cuddle, sometimes he's hungry n wants more milk. I think just feed when he demands n he's fine. I monitored his poo n pee so as long Ashe poo n peenormal then ok.

I also am experiencing the samr with my baby. Is your baby 3 weeks old? It starts around this agen goes on for weeks. When this happens, I tell myself he's getting used to environment outside of the womb n he's needing mummy n daddy's love n care. I try to remain positive n breastfeed him, when he pulls off or fuss, hold him in his fav position, sing to him, reduce stimulation by swaddling him, switching off lights leaving only night lights n rock him while walking around house. Trying diff methods to soothe him. It's a time when baby needs to know someone care for him when he's in distress. Nobody knows y baby will b in distress at this time of the day but we only guess n we can only do trial n error until we arrive at a method that he prefers.
Every night hubby n I will b so beaten by his fussiness. It doesn't help that he's also having cough n cold now. Sigh. No choice, we have to carry on n tell ourselves everything will be better soon. Evening fussiness goes away after a few weeks. When we see his cute face, everything is worth it!
He poos n pees every time after feed when we brought him back from hospital. So much that we gave up nappy. When I was using nappy, he pees even while I'm feeding him!
Now he poos n Pees regularly but I can't say whether it's every time after feed coz we switch to pampers n dont change so often now.
I lost like 5+kg, baby and placenta is about 3, the rest is probably blood and uterus shrink.
Still got about 6, I really dunnoe how to lose, the tummy after massage although smaller but still big and flabby. I didn't gained much below hip but upper body is gone case, ESP the back I think. I feel hungry and eat all 3 meals, but half bowl rice and lots
Of vege and lean pork or fish every lunch n dinner. If dont eat well , no breast milk
Sigh..... How to lose ?
I know I have raised this topic before but I am seriously concern N worried.
My baby is 17 days old and he is havig too little milk. Sometimes he drink only 20-30ml on about 3-4
hours time. If I m lucky, he drinks about 50ml + a few times since he is born only, either EBM or formula is the same amount.
but he is having like 8 wet diapers and yellowish poo at least 5 times in a day, sometimes really explosive.
Even I wake him up to nurse, he fall asleep very soon. Even he not sleeping, he also win drink a
What sld I do? I m so worried he dont get fatten up. And worse is my mum did not agree that I sld wake him up and force him, she say babies grow when sleeping, he will wake up if he wanna milk. Sigh
My baby has jaundice n I was in the same situation. Cried a lot coz baby keeps sleeping n dont feed.
Try not to measure how much baby drink n dont give infant formula. Just feed baby direct.
You NEED to wake up a slept baby with jaundice ro feed! My parents n parents in law keep telling me let baby sleep but I'm very firm on the feeding schedule coz sleepy baby won't demand for feed spo we cannot just wait for baby to wake up n do demand feeding. I wake my baby up every 2-3hrs, never let him sleep past 3.5hr. Baby drink only few min n fell asleep. While latched on I tickled his ears, tickled his feet, do breast compression, still cannot wake up, unlatch him rub his chest, take off swaddle n trousers or booties so his feet r cold, feed in cooler air con room, hold him n talk to him, asking him to wake up n feed etc. Those few days were tormenting. I got depression at 5pm almost everyday n kept crying n crying.
But baby grew out of it! By end of second week, he feeds well about 10-20min whenever I wake him up every 2-3hr. By 3rd week, he sometimes wakes up to demand for milk when it's time for milk. When he dont, I'll still wake him up for milk coz I want him to get used to drinking milk every 2-3hr.
If your baby wets n poos well then it means he's feeding well. My baby is a small eater, drinking 5-10min sometimes n 45min at most but he's growing heavier n taller whether we measured him n he poos n pees well. That's how we know drinking for lesser period dosent mean he snot getting milk. At first I was very worried n now I just relax n let him drink as much or as little Ashe wants. But if your baby is sleepy, wake him up n keep trying to feed him. If he's sleepy due to jaundice,he may not know he's hungry but he is! It's hard but press on n you'll c the light at the end of the tunnel!
