Is it true that your baby is consuming lesser? My baby appetite is still growing. It seems that he get hungry very quickly.
If your baby gets hungry very quickly maybe you want to increase the amount that you are giving him? maybe add another 10ml to see if he can last longer?
Now he's already 2 mths, his feeding interval is between 2.5 to 3hrs. He drinks about 120ml per feed. He used to drink 150ml but dont know why suddenly he always didnt finish the ebm and often left about 20 to 30ml and i find it so wasteful to throw away the ebm, so that why i cut down the amount to 120ml. Now he is fine with 120ml, if he wants more i will give him more. Currently i'm still monitoring his intake.
Are you still wearing mitten for your little one??? When shld we remove it??
hihi....have not been posting....if you all remember, my baby was born on 16th sep...2mths plus now...
last evening my baby experienced her first colic....we were so stressed out...did not know why she kept crying and not drinking....the way she cried was really scary, super heartpain...and nothing can stop her...can only carry and let her go to sleep....hope tonight will be better...
by the way, any of you experience breast reject? dont know why since yesterday she starts to reject my breast while all the way i was on total breastfeeding, only sometimes i miss 1 feed to feed her formula...now my breasts are super engorged....was really disappointed when she did not wanna suck my breast this morning...
i've removed her mittens eversince she started to lick her mittens...i thot it is very dirty so let her suck her fingers instead..and yes, she sucks all her fingers, not her thumbs only....
the breast rejection prob could be due to her colic. as her stomach is full of wind, she has no appetite to drink. you might want to keep patting her back to see if it helps. else, give her the colic drops..really helps
Some experts believe sucking fingers is good cos babies and comfort themselves whenever they want....
me keep my fingers cross and hope it remains like that and wont become worse....hahaha
Is it better to let baby suck the pacifer or his fingers? So far whenever I see him put his hands into his mouth, I will attempt to stop him. Worried that this might have side-effects (for example: he might think its a way to get my attn...)
But like some mummies said in the forum, their babies dont want the pacifer when they introduce it to them. Some of the used it to comfort their babies and it works for them when the babies cry. Can search the forum about pacifer, cos some mummies posted on it and they also gave their views on it. So i think it depends on yourself and how you look at it.
like what another mum has said, he may take in lesser in late afternoon..also, applies to 5-7am..every baby differs..so long as grow n poo..ok then..
but my baby is less than 5kg (weighed 2nd half Nov), lesser than all yr babies who drinks as much..just starts alternate with FM n freq is lengthened..
