For mummies who have given birth, do you find it troublesome or difficult to let baby latch on after you did the jamu massage? Due to the smell of the oil and also the binding on the abdomen area, I find it even more challenging to BF!
Probably yes, as mummy we have our natural smell and its good to keep our baby to familiar our smell first.. even for baby massage we suggest use the oil without any scent, vegetable oil will be recommend..like grape seed oil ect..
Anyone can share their Exp managing baby wifout any CL or inlaws help?

update: so happy today, with d help of my hubby, baby finally latch & on both sides. though its a short 2-3 mins feeding, I still feel happy..
how do we knw if our stitch below has fully recovered/ closed up? my 1st post natal
visit to gynae was 2 wks after birth & when checked gynae said my stitch showed signs of tearing apart. I told him I'll use d squart toilet at my in law house as d sit toilet is in their master bedroom & not nice of me to go in during midnight. He then stitched it back for me. My next visit will b 3 mths later, to do pap smear & diabetic test. But frm now till 3 mths later, how would I knw if d stitch has totally closed? any experienced mummy can advise?
Initially I have the sane prob n my CL caution me to always start with the breast with issue. Reason being that baby is hungry so will work hard to latch on n drink. If you start with your right n then proceed to left breast, your gal will be half or almost full so def not willing to latch on further.
Jia you k!!
Hi Gracecwz, hubby found the lactus at guardian , but the staff not sure if safe for breastfeed mummy, any advise?
Hi meilynn, thanks for the info , I will try to latch her on left side first, my left nipple is shorter, when she cannot suck well, she would get frustrated, n cry
It's normal for bf babies to have watery stools. Nothing to do with whether your bf got wind.. No need to feed formula. In fact, breast milk is much easier to digest which is y the stools r more frequent n watery. In fact, for the first month, it is expected that bf babies will poop almost after every feed. It shows that the baby is feeding well.
You can search google for pictures of bf baby poop to check if your baby's stool is normal.
