how you pat him to make him burp? can describe?
I also bottle feed my baby. latch her can take 1 to 1.5 hours. too much time. cannot do housework and rest.
I give her formula at night time, and ebm at day time.
is your baby a lot? I find my baby sleep very little. most of time she open her eyes and make noise want me to carry. I feel tired sometime.
i think i will give medela swing a try, but hard to find comments or reviews online...
now i only give my baby milk when he is very hungry, it is very obvious coz he will get really anxious when i offer him bottle or nipple. only this way he will drink faster and more !
he poos a lot, and he pees a lot also. if so, i suppose he is feeding well. for myself i pump every 2 hours, or every 3 hours, if he doesnt drink, i will discard. this is to ensure that my milk keeps coming in and when he is older, i still have milk for him
Any of your babies having dark green poo? Is it normal or not normal? My baby is having dark green poo and sometimes having diarharrea too. Sometimes is ok. Any advice?
my girl she vomit out her breastmilk on last night. she almost vomit out whole bottle which I feeding her. I dont't know what happen to her?
is it my breastmilk not hot enough. currently I use warmer in 40 degree, is it too warm. or I would put in 70 degree? will it too hot and damage antibodies of breastmilk? anyone can share how you heat up the breastmilk?
this early morning, she also vomit a little milk (formula) when she burp after she drink 80ml, after that she continue finished her 30 ml milk and sleep back. I feel super stress overtime feeding her.
anything I do wrong?
mummies, please help. I about loss now. should I continue feeding her breastmilk? is she dislike breastmilk?
you know the way you carry yr baby when botter feeding? i hold him on my left arm in the same position and pat him with my right arm, like hugging him like that. have to pat very long. this mornign i pat very long but he dont burp again. think depends on his mood want...
i heard that green poo is bcuz our baby drink foremilk only. try to express out and botter feed .
I think I overfeed my girl then why she vomit. I current reduce her intake for 90 ml. hope she get better.
how many hour your boy drink 90ml?
will your baby sleep a lot? I find my girl if she not sleep, then she will cry and keep demand the milk.
hi alisa and hotmilktea,
so far how you handle your boy? I so far ok, but find feeding her very stress and tiring for pumping breastmilk. sometime feel like given up.
my girl also recently can't sleep, usually she will sleep after drinking her milk. But now she has been crying and dont want to sleep. Maybe my mum's plc is on upgrading, has been making of alot of noise and digging the ground.Making my girl can't sleep at all. She also demand for milk after her poo. Really can't handle if she crys too much and have to carry her patting her to sleep.
I find too stress and tired too as not enough sleep in the middle of the night. My mum also feel that too, she has to handle her in the middle of the night. Both of us feel so tired, and I feel more stress after pumping the milk out and so little.
Handling babies is very tiring . I kind of got used to it. Every morning he'll demand for attention, every afternoon, he'll sleep more and every evening, he'll fuss. Just have to stay positive and talk to baby, let him hear your voice and feel your touch. I read in Kellymom that babies cry and fuss because they want to be loved and cuddled. This is a new environment for them after 9-10mths in the womb so they really need getting used to here. Every time my baby fuss, I just encourage myself to persevere and give him lots more love. I scolded him once coz he made me so exhausted but I felt really guilty and I told myself never to do that again. I try not to offer him pacifier and infant formula because I want to persevere and not take the easy route. I believe pacifier will only solve problem temporarily coz what he really wants is attention and cuddling, and true that formula makes him sleep longer hours but I tell myself just hang on a bit and he'll learn to sleep through the night . I've friends who total breastfeed their babies until 1 or 2 years old so I keep using them as models to motivate myself. Jia you, mummies!
I m dwn with flu, went to see doc and I emphasize 3 times that I m BF my 3wk old son, so watever medicine he gv must be safe.
YET he prescribe me the flu pills that is NOT safe. I check online n call the pharmacist, lucky I did a check. now he got to drink formula n I pump and throw all milk away. Goodness me what doc is that
my girl about same as your girl. currently my place is upgrading the lift, very noise also. my girl sometime shock by noise sound.
my girl usually take 110 ml last few weeks. but recently, I find I overfeed her. have few times, she vomit out her milk. feel terrible when saw her suffer for vomit ouout the milk. I reduce to 90 ml every 3 hours. but my girl keep asking milk after 1.5 hours. her mouth keep looking milk. look like very hungry. I did not feed her. I afraid overfeed her. she crying then I have to carry n pat her.
do you burp after you feed your girl. I feed my girl the she will fall in sleep. but after I start burp her, she awake. put her in cot bed, then she dont't want to sleep. have to carry and pat her. sometime can take about one hour to pat her to sleep. she sleep half to one hour then looking milk again. really tiring. me cannot rest.
Wow, really great. Can sleep for 3 to 4 hours. Then you have more personal time.
My girl seldom sleep so long. I take care my girl alone at day time. Sometime hard to get the time to pumping breastmilk.
So you should not have the problem to pumping milk if your boy can sleep 3 to 4 hours.
Alisa, you give your boy breastmilk day time and formula night day?? I actually want botlle feed my girl breastmilk at night time, but i found need time to warm up the breastmilk at night time. Some time cannot know what time she wake up for her milk, so cannot warm up the breastmilk. Do you bottle feed your boy at night time??
Ya, i find tha fully breastfeeding mother is very "wei da".
Lyra, are you working mother??
Pang, I dont't bother going back to doc, and decide to just stop BF for 2 days. My boy kinda reject formula, he dont't really want to drink and didn't poo at all since yesterday. I just want to recover quickly, can't even go near him now.
Lyra like myself, we are not working at moment. After my confinement ends which is this Sunday, I will be takin care of my boy full time. It's really stressful coz he dont sleep frm 12-4am this morning, sleep for a while then wake up at about 6 again! We are going to buy Yao lan soon. Although I m very against the idea. But if it can coax him to sleep then I transfer him to bed, sld be ok I guess
Hotmilktea, I heard from lactation consultant if we have cold, we can still breastfeed provided the medicine is ok for breastfeeding. dont have to stay away from child because even before you exhibit the symptoms, the virus is already in your body and you would have already passed it to your baby. If we have the antibodies and breastfeed it to the baby, baby dont need to take medicine. That's what I heard. Maybe you can call up the lactation consultant to ask again. Look for breastfeeding friendly doctors coz I find not all doctors are knowledgable about breastfeeding.
i actually replace breastmilk with water, so i put 90ml of water + 2 scoops of fomula. i dont put 3 scoops cuz i feel that will over fed as breastmilk is also filling want. Maybe you can try too.
Lyra & Alicia, I read about that too, but because the flu is passed by my hubby and I am sneezing very badly that I have to take medication. If not both of us are down and my mum is alone taking care. I want to recover quick but am really pissed that the pill is not breastfeed friendly.
Yes you r right, I have encounter doc and pediatrician not BF friendly and am very disappointed.
I use medela pump in style. Good n quiet.
I never seem to have time to pump except at night when baby is sleeping. He's feeding throughout the day he's practically glued to me. Have to feed him formula twice nightly because he was not sleeping but kept feeding n feeding.
I agreed. Man never know how busy we are when we take care of the baby. They will think we stay whole day at home. Free and easy.
I also hard to find time to pumping. i only able pumping 4 times a day (about 6 hours per time). Also face pumping half way to carry and pat her.
90ml water + 2 scoop. I will try next time.
But will your boy asking milk before 3 hours?? Do you feeding him??
