Hope your son recover soon.
You provide the beastmilk to infant care everyday??
I heard some of my friends said, if breastmilk start dropped, hard to increase the supply. DOnt know is true or not. I unable pumping during my office hours. As mentioned by hotmilktea, really not much companies allow mummy pumping breastmilk during office hours or provide a room for us to pumping.
I miss my kids when i am working. Sometime will keep calling back and find out how my kids. Really cannot afford if i am not working.
Hope ours kids be happy and be healthy.
Yup I can foresee that too if I start working.
my hubby can support , in fact he doesn't agree me to go back to work.
But I am really not a full time mum, and I studied so hard for my masters I sld put it to use and earn money myself
i also dont't like my hubby give me pocket $ and spending $ I got to think twice.
Having said that, not sure if I can even find a job! I am happy to work part time too
A bit late to join e forum but am glad to see there are so many advise around... My son was delivered in 25 Oct 11 though my EDD was 4 Nov Looking after him full time and loving it! but reality is cruel.. need to look for a job soon so that I can help out financially too... hopefully can find a job that works from home... so i can see him 24x7
this is my rabbit boy - jayvern =)
Hi all! I'm a first time mum to a three month plus baby boy. Was just wondering for those mummies who breastfeed their babies, how often do you nurse? And how well does your baby sleep? Cos my baby has reverse sleep-wake cycle (up all night but sleeps a lot in the day). Any tips to help cos it's very stressful... Many thanks!
My menses came today, I guess it means my breast milk will decrease soon.
Not necessary, our body react differently.
Many westerners milk no decrease even when menses, I think because of their intake of daily products such as cheese etc.
My anenatal consultant said 1 look can tell the expressed milk is frm Asian or westerners.
Anyway, my target was until 6mths, iif can is good , if not I already try my best. Can't wait for 6 months so I can go back to jog too.
My target is for at least 6 months, but if can persist longer then better.
Now try hard to increase my breastmilk, but really difficult.
Hotmilktea, why now cannot jog?? Or your mean go back to job??
I am working mother, sometime i found bore at home if i be full time working. I found that not easy to be a full time mother.
this pic was taken last month. i bought 2 packs everyday to Infant care and i can manage to express 2 packs per day so the bags are not decreasing.
to all mother who still want to breastfeed their babies, Jia Yu!
How I wish I can expressing more and keep my breastmilk as you.
You bring 2 bags to infant care and you able to expressing 2 bags... mean you can keep maintain your breastmilk.. so good.
Dont know can i drink papaya soup to increase my breastmilk?? Haha, some of my friends told me, is too late to drink papaya soup.
my son originally have this problem..everytime he burps all e milk will come out... and then i mix his formula (enfalac A+ HA) with friso comfort... he started not puke so much milk out... and now only once in a blue moon then will puke milk out if he doesn't stay still while drinking his milk... friso comfort is thicker so it will settle in their stomach longer too... so they won't be hungry that fast but not all baby are ok with it...so i'm only giving a suggestion for you to try
Sorry first time mum here -- really unsure about parenting...
for me at nite after 9pm i make sure all e nitefeed all are done in dim light in baby's room.. even when i feed him n put him back to bed i did not talk to him.. sometimes after feed he seems not tired... i just leave him at his cot... and he will play a while a fall asleep on his own...
Wow so envious your baby can self soothe himself to sleep. My baby is reaching four months in a week's time.
Yup I'm trying to be very boring at night so that he knows it's night time. And he does not like swaddling at all - he's very strong, can break out of the swaddle since one month. He has started flipping from back to front since 2.5 months so I dont't think swaddling will help. He tends to wake up crying at night when flipping cos he can't turn back - do you experience that?
