I also cannot take cow milk, since young I took goat milk.
did you ask pediatrician whether she can take goat milk?
i know a mummy whereby her baby doesn't even drink milk, not even goat milk or soya bean.
so the baby has to drink Vit oil everyday.

Talking about paternity leave, is every daddy entitled to that or only based on company? My hubby didnt take paternity leave when I gave birth, he took AL!!
Depends on each company. Like my hubby only has 3 days paternity leave. And he's from the govt sector.
Oh. I better call him and ask him to check now! If not AL wasted. Lolol.
Mummies.. I am getting very tired of even expressing milk now and my milk flow seems to have slowed down already. I hate my battery breast pump cos it feels like there's no difference from manual when I've got to hold it and press the button to release suction. It's tiring! Been feeding my bbgirl formula milk whenever she cries, and just A LIL bit of whatever breast milk I managed to express out. Probably only 1-2oz. It's only the 5th day and I'm afraid I might totally stop giving her breast milk cos my hands are aching from expressing the milk out. I've stopped latching her on cos she rejects my breasts with so much force. She claws my face and literally grabbed my specs and threw them on the floor (i didnt know a 5day old baby is so strong. Lol). She almost ripped out my necklace as well. And she shakes her head like as though in spasm when I try to put her head to my nipple. It's all the signs of her telling me "mummy you're TORTURING me. STOP IT!" okay to be fair, she does try to suckle sometimes when i bother to try to latch her on. But only for awhile and there she goes wailing her lungs out again...
Anyway, i'm hoping to get opinions on which electric duo pumps that is recommended. I'm trying to buy it off second-hand or brand new from other mummies who did not use it and selling off at lower price. Saw a few duo pumps for sale on the forum here, but I dont know what is the difference and which one I shld get.. Appreciate your feedbacks!! Thanks in adv ^^
Hi shalynn, I m also on my own with no CL nor mother in law nor my own mum. Hubby took 2wks leave initially to help me out....after that I m on my own . Everything is all manageable except for the sleepless nites.... it's 4wks tmw n I m feeling real tired ....long for hubby's off days so that he can take over the nite shift ...hahaOriginally Posted by ShalynnShafii:665069
My ger is an angel at day time but a demon at nite time.... always want to be carried...the moment you put her down, she will start to cry....but daytime she's happy to sleep anywhere....dont know why.. .sigh....
Hi engraved ...I m using avent electric pump n I love it....can't imagine life without it now...it comes with battery operated function as well so you can still use it when on the road but I have never used it so can't say whether it's good or not...
So normally I will press a few times manually to tell the pump the speed I want, then after that i will press another button n the machine will take over based on the speed I set earlier ...dont know this info sufficient for you not....let me know if there is any thing else you want to know....
Dreamalyn- how much did you buy it for? It's hands-free after you set it to auto right? Means you can do other things while it pumps the breasts? Haha.
Think some where between $250-$300.. (I bot the 'out and about set' as I planned to pump in office when I go back to work in Oct/Nov)....can't really rem .. .but I m in nz, spore might be cheaper.
Hmm... I still need one hand to sort of support the bottle....but some times I hold the bottle in place by squashing it between my breast n my thigh when lying in bed so I could use my phone to surf the net...
Amazingpig - Then you supplement baby with FM? Do you still pump regularly or just once in awhile? My baby only 5 days, and I already feel tired of expressing breast milk. My hands feel damn sore already. Today I only express ONCE, and I mix with the breast milk I express last night (less than 24hrs in fridge), total about 1oz only. Today didn't manage to express much cos keep getting disturbed. Like the once I was expressing, baby suddenly cry. I no choice but to stop expressing. And only managed a little bit though my milk from both nipples still leaking -.-" Sian. After that too tired to continue . But the few times that I manage to express, normally take quite long. Can take half - one hour or so. dont't really remember.
Medela freestyle is duo pump? Is it hands-free or need to hold on?
Dreamalyn- is your pump single or duo? i hoping to find a duo pump that dont need to hold, LOL. got such thing?
Hi Engravedx - mine is Ameda dual electric pump.
So far ok..
Blackangel- is it handsfree? Lol. Noisy mah??
Any mummies have not signed up for their baby bonus yet? For those who have, how to go about doing it?
Mine is single pump. I dont know got pump dont need to hold on one not....maybe you can go to the shops n ask?
Day 5 still quite early for the milk to really come in....be patient.... you got eat green papaya soup not? Really really effective one....
Talking about baby bonus, I also have not do....mine will be a bit complicated as I m overseas....have to ask my brother to be trustee also as we dont have ocbc n Citibank accounts..... Better hurry up n do it.... 4k ..dont play play
Dreamalyn- i looking for dbl pump, cos my nipples seems to like to leak milk together at the same time. =="
I never drink green papaya soup. dont know how to cook. O.o maybe i will ask my mum see if she know anot. Lol.
How long are we given to do the baby bonus ? I also no ocbc and citibank acc..
No need to be an existing member to open cda account with OCBC or SCB. Apply n they open new account for you.
I have been a human feeding machine since baby born. Feed on demand n she is drink more now. dont know how much I give her cos in hospital n latch her on all the times. Nipples not sore cos I think Kandang Kerbau Hospital taught me the right way to latch on. Hopefully I can do it wen I'm discharged tomolo.
Any mummy bought support pillow for breast feeding? Used the one provided by Kandang Kerbau Hospital n I thinking used to it. Reduce tiredness n also help cos my hands are still numb after a while
Eve- go to the bank directly to apply?
So envious that baby can latch on so well for you. My bbgirl refuse it terribly. Lol. I also at Kandang Kerbau Hospital but i think they never teach me properly. (
Just put my gal on top to latch on and then my friends are free!
By the way - think Engravedx is talking about Baby bonus not CDA. It's different.
Anyway, I did everything in hospital for convenience sake.
