Dear Milkshake, I have the same worrying that my breast milk supply cannot sustain too. As of now, my gal latches on 90% of time so I pump once per day. This pump usually btw 60 to 90ml. Thus, yet to even freeze the breast milk suppy in freeze.
My CL was sharing that her CL friend now doing confinement n the mummy ate 2 whole steamed fish EVERY meal. She pumps 4,5 times per day n per pump 240ml. Really alot of milk supply. For me, I ate fish every meal but only a small portion / piece. Think while this mummy really has very big n good appetite which gives lotsa milk, I will not follow suit as I m not really a fish lover. I started eating fish bcos of the breast milk supply.
Best of luck to your effort in breast milk storage. Jia you!!
I'm eating fish but can't eat every meal . I believe there's other food which can boost the supply as well.
Thanks chendolgal and meilynn. I eat fish too but not whole fish. Usually a few pieces. But I drink soup some 2x a day and I really dont't like drinking soup but for sale of breast milk no choice.
Hope we all can sustain our supply all the way!
I swear by papaya and fish soup!
At first was worried about supply problem, but after drinking 3-4 bowls of the soup, my supply increased from 100ml to 170ml!!
Pissed early morning!! Now I understand why alot of ppl say monster-in-law!! Call me to wake me up ask me about baby! Ask got do hearing test cos my mother'dog bark, baby still sleeping. Ask what test is done? Got bath got eat!! Every day seem to report to her and father in law! They call at diff time to ask everyday! I need to sleep also! Specially I take care of baby at nite! Then keeps tell me not to place baby at rocker! I place baby in rocker to let them see at living room when they visit onli. Since can't place in rocker. I will place in bed in the room. They can't see long ! If that what they want!!
My mother in law do help me to a certain extend but sometimes she is so stubborn and stuck on her own methods it really frustrates me. What to do, haizzzz
Can try pig trotter peanut soup.. also increase milk supply. Steam cod fish do help also..
I also think papaya fish soup really helps. I drank last night during dinner. This morning I pumped 200ml in 15 mins! Usually only about 100ml
Rukia- the thing is mother in law hear too much thing from other! Then everytime got new IDEA! Then she won't say infront of me or my parent. They will call nonstop to hubby or me after that! She can't help much, so dont expect my mum to be maid to baby!! She didn't even take care of her 3 own children when baby ! Then for baby shower, we ask her how many box of cake she want! Every visit seem to have additional box! There never confirm no from her!! I hint her on the my bill will cost alot! She still ask me to buy those package w/ egg, kueks, rice n cakeusy nice nice one!! Those ppl she give won't give AB also! N they wont come, have to bring over to them the cake n they r not relative also! what te pt of giving!! We r not print $$ one !
Does anyone know if we did csect for first child - what is the time gap needed before we can have another child?
As tired as I am I think if we really want another child I would prefer to do it sooner than later. I dont think I can take all the late nights again as I grow older
do you know when we can start exercising? i know within 4-6 weeks, we can only do stretches and light exercise.
how about things like aerobics or jogging - when can start?
btw, i had normal delivery...
You really to tk the leap n plan for no. 2?
Same here, my hubby keep pestering for no.2 but I am already 36 this year, looking after this new born already giving me forbia... Few more years I dont think I can take it anymore, physically n mentally...
I also have monster-in-law! My mother in law called me and msg me about 2 times a day asked me what baby doing. what can a baby do other than sleeping, feeding and playing! They come to my house almost everyday to see baby still everyday msg me. when they come my house, my mother in law will keep carrying the baby for hours. i no chance to see my baby also! super pissed with her, is like her baby not my baby!
Talk about NO. 2, hubby n me intend to have 2 year later, maybe no. 3 if we can afford. But mother in law insist when baby is about 4 or 5 year old then have NO.2, then stop. But I am 32 . I cant wait too long also if we intend to have, we dont like to have long age gap . Can't she just shut up, we already 30 plus, can't we have our own plan. Why do we have to listen to her, she know we dont listen also, it onli make us pissed n dont like them only. I wonder after 1st month will she keeps visit us or ask to visit her every wkend. It will be like no life for me, hubby and baby .
