Hi catflying, i will be doing my c sec on the 22 Jun as well.
Hi blackangel, congrats! Enjoying motherhood now...
I bought ardo breast pump. It comes with a person to come down my place to guide me. It has a few cup sizes for me to choose. All in the set. Will wash it this weekend.
These things is not expensive so I in law never argue w her. My in law always tell me eat the fish and chicken finish. dont left for her. Left vege for her is enough.
but in the mid of cooking, she eat a bit, I also won't know.
Do you all open the tap to clean your pump or wash hand? I sometimes wash it myself, I scare the CL destroy my pump.
then she will tell me dont wash so many things.
i sometimes wonder in toilet I also use the hose after my business. And in hospital I also wash face and hand using that tap.
is all water.
What does water that is boild before vs tap water related with confinment?
Hmm, to me it make diff, I try used tap water to wash my hand and wash below, after few days my hands start to pain, I ask nanny to boil water for my own used, I let nanny wash my pump but only those washable item, the motor for pump I will keep incase spoilt... I will buy for nanny to eat too but not that much, nanny will share with me too...
I used the water that my CL boiled for the first few days then very troublesome so I used the tap water.
After a few days, my veins on my hand pain, dont know is it because I never used boiled water. ;(
Although my CL asked my mother in law to buy these & that, when we have dinner together, she actually never eat my confinement food.
Today she just fried an egg and share my vege with me.
So my hubby said since the CL not bad in taking my gal, maybe we dont't be so demanding over the food issue.
He asked me to try telling my CL tomorrow that I want to eat a specific dish instead of letting CL to decide what to cook.
Jenni - since you got two daughters, ask you huh, full month bash - do you hold it after ya confinement?
Cos I heard some old ppl said if gal, the full month must hold it before the actual full month date, if boy never mind.
I dont't know what logic and when I ask the meaning of it, no one able to give me an answer.
And my gal hair a lot and I like it a lot, but my mum and friends all around ask me to shave it during her first month. ;(
did you do it for ya both girls?
Black angel, for me I heard before for ger have to do early but for me I will see if it falls on weekend or weekdays, if fall on weekdays I will do it early on weekend... I do confinement myself even is full month, I do up to 40days myself coz heard that actual full month should be 40 days...
My #1 I do shave for her but in the end become no hair, I try a lot of ways but still no hair so my #2 gt hair, I dont want to shave, I just cut abit out myself, I scare shave no hair like my #1 haha... My #3 will not shave too... you can like me cut abit yourself and keeps baby hair...
Actually was sleeping , out of sudden have a very sharp pain and wakes me up, keep feeling my baby want to force herself out like that.. So painful..
Sign of contraction? Is it regular?
Blackangel, how is your milk flow?mine increase to 60 to 70 ml. sigh.... When can I start storing?

Amazing pig, haha not sure, going for check up later then ask my Gynea.
you can start storing your breast milk everytime you pump... Didn't time, use to have sharp pain only once in the while, ytd whole day keep having the pain.. Heard that every delivery is diff so I also can't confirm, need to wait for Gynea to check...
i dont know is it because I not enough sleep, one whole wk of confinement, I didn't really nap...
But on the other hand, I dont't know is it because I bf too extensively so I Pump no milk..practically feeding my girl every one and a half hour. And after her feeding, I think still got milk and dont't want to waste it, so I pump it out. Ended up sore nipples. ;(
I will tell my CL to start making papaya milk for me.
my gal full month on weekday, so I'm thinking if bring forward I still in confinement, so dont know should I bring backwards instead.
For the shaving of hair, me and my youngest sister had all hair shaved off and now our hair not as much as compared to my 2nd sister who never shaved her hair at all! I think I also cut a bit will do!
I think ya baby coming ..because I went for induce, those few days I also feel her pressing it down and very painful...
I also think you have dilated more.
My friend say full month must be earlier, cannot be later.
I thought CL only 28 days. So left the finally few days up to you.
now I whole day so sticky. Wiping with boiled water also to use.
sigh,,hair is oily, walk like zombie, dont know how to go to post natal check up at this stage.
later still have to bring baby to first check up to check her jaundice. I smell like sour fish.
Blackangel, you still trying latch on? I already give up on latching on, she always bite my nipple, maybe my nipple is too short, and I suffer from the lipstick nipple after latching.
Is vomit milk normal? Is it indigestion or drink too fast?
my CL say is normal.

Hahaha..Anazing pig - I feel the same like you. That day bought my daughter went for first check up, I was so worried ppl will detect the smell on my hair and also worried there will be flies... ;(
faster went out and faster came home...hahaha..
Today ask my CL make papaya soup for me, hopefully can boost my milk supply! I want to be a cow!!!
If urs falls on weekdays, you can arrange weekends and before your confinement ends, coz you will be super tired as i believe will have alots of friends and relative to entertain, after they go back you have to pack and look after your baby, if your nanny still there she can help you, if not you will be super tired... Like my #2, nanny go back the day i do ger full month, after all go back, i pack my house and look after baby myself at night, donno is it coz my ger know my nanny went off, whole night not sleeping and i can't sleep too... Faint...
Nanny with me for 28 days, the rest i do it myself, is up to each person... For me is 40 days hehe...
Yah, my girl also always vomit milk (even after I burp her), CL said it's normal too!
But if she keeps on vomit milk, I will bring up and burp again.
Yah, amazing pig, I still latching on, trying to correct my gal's way of sucking.
But after bf her, my nipples will feel a little burning sensation, so I will use hot towel to massage & use ice cube to massage as well.
Jenni - Thks, I think it make sense that I have my gal full month before my CL leaves, hahaha so I got another helper if not I sure Peng San!!!
Hehe...tomorrow gotta bring my gal see pediatrician for her final check on jaundice.
Sat brought her there and her jaundice increases but pediatrician said as long as lower than 15 is fine *phew*
Now at night, CL will give her formula milk, daytime I bf her whenever she wants...
then yesterday I tried to pump after bf her, ended sore nipples... ;(
wow.. all of you are so enthu in breastfeeding!
My mother in law also tell me to breastfeed instead of feeding full fm. Lol. But i'm lazy and scared of sore nipples, pain, not enough milk.
and Jenni, I have the same problem with you. I think its because baby is moving down more into the birth canal, thats why sharp pain. Baby moves very virgously at night for last week. Now has quieten down. This sun is my EDD . going to see gynae later, dont know will ask me induce or not. haha..
talking about full month, so excited. I wanna buy cakes and give out!
Hahaha..so exciting!!!so many mummies giving birth soon!!! Soon this thread will be discussion on CL, breastfeeding, full month bash and etc!!!!
MrsWang - you tried bf first then see whether you r really that uncomfortable. I got a friend who bf all the way and I salute to her.
But I dont't want, because the first few days no milk and my gal drinks a lot so if never give formula milk, I worried her jaundice level will go up.
Mao now bf daytime, night time formula milk.
I use to latch on too but Donno baby drink how much so I pump out, used bottle feed so I know how much baby drink is it enough...
Mrs Wang maybe you try used pump out , if latch sometime baby will bite... It best to bf at least 1 month if you dont want feed too long, baby with bf and w/o bf have diff one , my friend stop her milk once she give bath and she didn't take care well, all her kids keep on go hospital in and out compare to my gers... Sure you want the best for your baby too rite...
For jaundice, ask nanny to bring baby every morning 8am to sun tan, it will reduce the jaundice, my #1 used to have very high jaundice, I so worry and ask nanny to bring baby sun tan, coz even admit hospital also put under light...
