I do introduce pacifier, no choice she is addicted to my nipples!! At times, she will reject the pacifier n look rather piss. Sigh.
Yr confinement lady is right, keep carrying then baby will get use to it. So, I looking for alternatives to put baby to sleep.
Oh isit? I did not know that manual suction is more efficient. I usually gauge by seeing the flow n feel my breast, if they are soft means emptied.
Thanx mommymin, nightingale n littlelady!
So having dry skin is normal... Was still thinking why apply lotion still peeling... So they are shedding in-utero skin...
I have not try to bathe my gal yet, but have been watching mum do it... So scary.. My gal will scream n struggle n kick... So dangerous... Then again this will pass right... Then i'll shall wait...
When i had my 'show' i thought it will probably be the next day or the day after... Who knws i gave birth on the same day!!! Hahaha but urs will defintely be soon!!!!
All the best girl!!!!
And you shld go grab as much rest as possible before the baby arrived!!!
By the way, no harm bringing your breast pumps to the hospital, at most just leave it in the car. Never know when it may come in useful. My friend had engorgement on her 3rd day and she regretted not bringing her pump - cos baby may take a while learning how to latch on. So just bring and standby
Hi I have bought the swing. So far so good but I think is slow for me , maybe my milk output is not as much yet. As what has mentioned in the previous threads，suggested to change to larger shield to prevent leakage. you use already?
Oh have you pm me? I should have gone to the spree earlier! Then I can get my medela freestyle..
Thanks for sharing!
you decide for yourself .... Whether you are able to do some adjustments so that you are able to provide for your baby n massage at the same time....
Im now so glad that i left 2 sessions.... Hahaha.. After this i can concentrate on just latching my baby on... I find pumping quite troublesm...
Regarding the massager, I started mine on the 7 th day and I'm seeing the results on the 3rd to 4th sessions so I think quite useful cos it helps to slim tummy and clear toxic from body if that is what really happening as told by my massage lady.
Thanks Mrs_Eg & Nightingale!
I'm so confused and tired...most mummies who posted their birth experience had their babies within the same day or next day...not me...not sure why
Continued to have bloody show this morn and also contraction pains the whole night so early this morn decided to go hospital. But after bath and getting ready, suddenly the pain eased and subsided. Called clinic and nurse says it's not in actual labour pains yet, just early signs of labour so in the end decided need not rush to hospital.
Later on, talked to gynae and she suggested for me to go induce labour tomorrow morn saying I have 80% chance that I can dilate successfully since I already 2cm dilated n my cervix is very flexible. Sigh...had wanted natural but bo bian think I will go induce tomorrow. The waiting game is KILLInggG me!!! So excited now about tomorrow...mayb cannot sleep tonight again haha...
Nightingale, thanks for advice about bringing pump to hospital on standby...so have to sterilize first before bringing down rite but for sterilize they must b used within 24 hours? Sorry all these are so alien to me being first time mom
