Alternatively, you can refer to this website. Your baby refuses to drink breastmilk - Pigeon Breastfeeding Advisor
(a) The nipple is inverted or flattened
・If the mother’s nipple is inverted or flattened
Method of coping: There are several methods that can be used. Moms can use a method called “reverse pressure softening”--a technique in which a mom can use her fingers to gently soften the circle around her nipple and areola. This technique briefly moves some of the swelling back and up into her breast to soften her areola. Pushing back the swelling also makes it easy to remove milk with her fingertips or with short periods of slow gentle pumping, combined with gentle forward massage of the upper breast, if you need to remove milk for your baby (Source: K. Jean Cotterman RNC, IBCLC.) Alternatively, a mom can use a nipple puller to evert the nipple using gentle suction.

Do you think we can do a meet up like lunch, tea or dinner before our babies pop???
hi mommies, been some time since i posted. so many updates! i am starting to feel a little panicky now because i have not done any shopping at all. but i can't shop now because i have absolutely no place for storage! we are still flat-hunting and hope to get it all done before baby's out.
now that we're in the 3rd tri, anyone feels those pesky symptoms coming back? morning sickness is back to haunt me, my feet are so swollen, and i am starting to feel very sleepy at 8pm. in addition i've been having lower abdominal pain and it is so bad that i can't lift my legs or walk without feeling pain. doctor says i probably strained my ligament and during pregnancy such strains will take longer than normal to recover, so all mommies please dont't over stretch yourselves!
read some mommies posting about counting baby's kicks - my doctor said i should only be concerned if i dont't feel her for more than 3 hours. i guess any increase/decrease in movements is normal, unless it's totally no movements at all.
now i guess we can't wait for baby to be out! for me, it's more because my body can't take much more now haha...
thanks for the tips..been experiencing pain on lower tummy. Gynae said the baby is pressing on the nerves hence such pain..
also feel sleepy but keep on tossing and turning,,all in slow motion.
It is probably a bit early for those clueless first time mom like me... cos hands-on experience probably better... but I think there is no harm in getting to know more about it first....
Came across this video about Breastfeeding Latch On...
For those who intend to try breastfeeding can pick up some pointers from it.

I read somewhere that our babies will poo when they are in our tummies. Is this true? Why would this happen? Anyone heard your gynae mentioned about this before?
From what i know, baby's first poo is known as meconium. If this happens during your labour, it usually indicates that the baby is stressed. It'll result complications if swallowed.
It's greenish that's why its important to note the colour and time if your water breaks before admission to hospital.
Is it necessary to have post natal massage? how does it help?
I found an article describing the benefits of postnatal massage here...
It's been really quiet in here lately...
How's everyone doing???
How's all the preparation???
We have about 1 month plus to go ppl... hahaha cant wait!!!
Oh ya I still have not 'booked' my post-natal massage lady! Better start looking around!
I think I have started to waddle when I walk. And ankles starting to show some signs of water retention, and in my fingers too (wedding ring feels a bit snug). Wore heels 2 days ago for just 2 hours for an event - and the ankle swelling was immediate! So scary!
