Is the pill for fever? you can try googling for it but I thought actually there is no pills for viruses. Only vaccine... The pills should be to combat the symptoms of the flu virus like cough, runny nose etc. If you have no fever, its ok not to take the pill? If I have a virus like flu, I might just continue breast-feeding without taking any medicine and just sleep and drink a lot of water. That is if I've no fever. Coz if your body recover from the virus, the symptoms will go away by itself. dont need any pills to help alleviate it.
alisa, you throw away the milk if your boy not finish it or keep in warmer?
how many hours we can keep the milk in warmer? cause sometime I willtake out the milk in warmer half hour before feeding time. but sometime my girl will sleep over the feeding time. wondering long long can keep the milk warmer?
you first in first your breastmilk, or give fresh breastmilk to your boy? I hear someone said we should give fresh breastmilk, is more good to baby.
I find my girl always leaking the milk from her mouth when she lie in bed. sometime little sometime can be a lot. I did burp her after feeding and put her lie in bed. but she always leaking the milk.
any mummies know why baby will leaking the milk?
any method avoid baby leaking the milk from mouth?
thanks for sharing.
Can check out this method to burp baby. Very effective for me and some other mummies.
I took care of my elder daughter by myself and now I am taking care of my boy by myself too. Now I pump about 2 ~ 3 times a day usually when hubby is around to help take care of the kids. I am total breastfeeding my boy now.
For myself, I maximize milk flow by pumping both sides till dry every 2 hours the moment my milk came in on the 3rd day after delivery.
Starting is only 60ml then slowly to 80ml, keep increasing till now 1 side can pump to 125ml every 3 hours. But left side milk flow is lesser I dont't know why sometimes only 40-60ml. my boy is starting to drink more like 120ml every 2.5hr. I didn't BF for 2-3 days coz I taking medicine, today just BF him back. My boy is 1 month old today and it also means confinement over and I am all alone taking care of him now. Really need support and help frm mummies here who will be alone like me!

alisa, do you mean take out 5 oz into warmer for 4 hours? when you need to feed your son, then take the amount you need?
cause what I do is I take out the feeding amount and put in warmer. but sometime, my girl demand early, but the milk have not warm yet. but sometime, I take out early, then my girl she over sleep. really hard to estimate the timing.
thank the info.
I tried the method. is work. another method for me to burp my girl.
you are full time mother? you take care both kids without helper? how you do that? I should learn from you.
last weekend, my elder son (19moths) with me on last 2 days ( sat n sun, weekday with nanny). I feel about crazy to take care both kids together. when they fussy together, both want to carry. very headache. settle the boy already then have to settle baby. after settle baby, boy start fussy already. some more afraid my boy go to disturb my girl.
I told my husband, I feel like myself just a maid, do housework n take care both kids. cannot rest.
