This is a discussion on EDD (September 2009) within the Year 2011 and earlier Mummy forum, part of the Mummy Meeting Place category; Originally Posted by newbie2009 What brand of pump you using? Frankly I also never go and calculate how many times ...
I have this breast shells which my husband bought for me earlier when my nipples were super sore. Now I use them to contain milk from one breast while I pump on the other as the unpumped breast will leak when there is a letdown. Im now considering to buy another pump because I realised that the letdown is faster when baby is sucking on one breast while I pump on the other, meaning letdown is faster when both breasts are stimulated at the same time =)
Baby was born on the 14th. So now 7 coming 8 weeks old
You can go to the Philips Service Centre
You can buy the Motor Pump, and the adapter, should be around $100 for these two items.

How much are you pumping currently? Yes, you will be able to achieve faster letdown when you latch the baby and pump at the same time.
.. you have to try to keep your baby stay awake in the day as much as possible. You have to try and observe what can wake your baby....
For mine, let him lying on the floor or changing his diaper, do wake him up..
Sometime his 2 KoKo wake him up as they were playing so loudly..
Or bring her down for a walk after 1 of her afternoon feed.
Or try to entertain her after her shower till next feed. Normally if you can let her stay awake for 2 hours in the daytime twice in 1 day, I believe she will able to sleep longer at nite..
I will let my son stay awake after his shower time (after 9am feed) till about 1030am or 11am, then will make him sleep using the sarong. He will wake up again to drink milk at 12pm, normally after that he will sleep straight away.
Then will try to let him stay awake again after the 6pm feed till 730pm..
His feeding time are fixed. 1st feed in morning 6am, then 9am, 12pm, 3pm, 6pm, 9pm and last feed for the day 11pm...
I will try to stick to this timing, only allow him to drink half an hour earlier or later from the fixed time. Eg. if he cry at 1130am, I will feed him but not earlier than that.. or he sleep till 1230pm and still have not wake up, I will feed him with him sleeping and drinking.
At nite, he will normally wake up at 3am or 4am, but i will not feed him i will juxt put him at the sarong and shake him till 6am then feed him..
Normally, they will be trained after a while.
Started his training last week, now he wake up near to 5am so I am perserving...
Tricia mummy, i am trying to keep her awake too.. not easy!!.. in the meantime also try to establish her bed time routine... if not when i go back to work i will be in trouble!!
there is a philips sales gg on. maybe you all can go down and take alot at advent items..
Philips Carnival Sale on 7-8 Nov 9-6pm @ 620A 1 Toa Payoh
he's going 9 weeks, im cant tell how much he drinks as he latches on but during his first month he will latch for 15 mins and sleep for 3 hours.
now he's latching for about 10 mins and sleep for 2 hours...his bottle feeding in the day is 60ml every 2 hours, this resulted from his colic a couple of weeks back
I have a problem. My baby recently changed her drinking habit. She seem to take in milk after 4 hours. If we feed her exactly at 3 hours, she refused to drink and cry. Not sure what happen. and she has been quite cranky lately. Not sure what happen. is it colic???
Any sept mummies start to bring their baby out?
Just my 2 cents of thoughts =)
How many Sept mum has send your baby for immunization? Sent my baby on the 6th Nov for jab. Ended up having slight fever for 2 days. sigh.
Btw how tall and heavy are your babies? My baby weight has reached the 97%, while his height is among the 90%.
Your baby should be 2mths old now? Abit early for the DPT jab that causes slight fever.
So what's your son's current height & weight? Are you looking at the health booklet chart for the percentage? I feel it's not that accurate for the 1st few mths, the curves are too close to one another. But, 90% over, that just shows your baby has enuff to eat and growing well. Must be a tall macho hunk in the future =)
Twice for his checkup, twice for my checkup.
Nearby shops a few times just to stroll
T3 to eat Popeye's (then I realised Tampines also have..grr)
Ran around the island to distribute thank you gifts for my friends (we did not hold a baby shower)
Think the record was 7hrs out. But very tiring cus I am still on total BF & have yet to totally master the skill to bf in public, I had to do it in the car or find quiet corner..abit mafan. He only likes to be carried and he gets fussy. When that happens, nothing can calm him excepts my boobies. *lol*
then when rch home, baby will get cranky mah??
I brought my son out to vivo one sat around 6pm then back hm before 9pm but the nx day he dont want to sleep abit cranky.. then last sat i bring him out in the daytime, come back home olso cranky..
BUt i bring him out for few times . Havent 1 month already bring him to my checkup and to ntuc.. hehe.. then baby actual 1 month brg him go pray pray and give cakes to some elderly relatives..
Just that the recent 2 times get cranky lei..Hais..
