Jiayou all mummies!
I bought the fenugreek today and started after dinner, shall update to see how it works out. My left breast gives lesser milk than the right. About one-third the amount, also has nipple blockage in this breast. Sometimes after pumping, will have a lump at the areola area which I think does block the milk flow somehow. After my 55ml this afternoon, my evening pump only about 30ml. So I think volume not consistent. Like I pumped out one large volume then next time cannot get such large volume again.
Squeeze already still have white spot!

Same here, I managed to pump 150ml this morning but subsequently only got 50ml of milk for the rest of the day. Think the breast refill the milk very slow. Lol.

Then starts to latch, if baby falls asleep start counting 1-5 . It already becomes a habit for my baby to suck when I start counting. If he stops , mean he asleep. Thrn move him around , put down on bed, or massage him. Quite useful.
hihi! alot of things happened after my long absence. just gave birth thru csection on 2/11. stayed for 3 nights supposed to be discharged on Sunday but baby developed jaundice so had to stay one more night. got discharged on monday, but her jaundice still high so had to sun her but weather has been terrible!!
went for checkup on Thursday her jaundice still high 14, but paedi allowed us to bring her home to try sunning her. brought her for checkup again on Friday, jaundice got even higher 15.5 so no choice had to admit her for 2 nights.
had to go to and fro to breastfeed her, finally got her discharged today. jaundice now down to 6.5, phew! but still gotta sun her for another week.
baby no.2 breastfeeding quite well but my milk supply not that much yet. how many times a day is the norm to pump breastmilk? but if pump still have milk for baby to suckle? or do you top up with formula? coz when she was admitted in hospital for jaundice I still breastfed her but I told the nurse to top up with formula if she is still hungry...
Hi, my baby girl is now 6 weeks old. I have frozen expressed breast milk to give away. About 35 packets dated from 22 Oct 2012 to 10 Nov, range from 120ml to 150ml, suitable for baby less than 2 mths old. I am a non smoker. If interested pls e-mail me to email@example.com or text me at 93274303. I live in Simei.
I top up with fm if breast milk isn't enough. If I pump, I dont't latch and vice versa since I am already having low supply.

Congrats to B Zhai & Morning Dew! Take a good rest!
I was discharged with baby yesterday, is reli tired after give birth, especially cannot take a good rest in hospital. My blood pressure still high before I discharged, need to meet my gynae again tomorrow, hope it is under control already!!!! But my feet still very swollen =(
Luckily, I started to pump milk today, it was quite successful. Will try to latch on more when my nipple recover~
Give birth and Motherhood life are not easy, salute to all mummies~ All the best!! Jia you together!=)
Same here. I let him latch once a day when he wants an afternoon snack in between feeds. He just falls asleep and suckles for half an hour or so. just very nice to lie with him on my bed. Other times he takes bottled formula and breast milk.Originally Posted by wobblymummy:718456
Would like to share a little on my birth story!
Was induced at 145AM
Started with 2cm dilation
Contractions started stronger around 6+
Had epidural around 8 ish
Water bag burst by gynae around 10AM
Dilation at 8-9cm around 130PM
Started delivery at 423PM
My boy was out at 449PM 11/11
He's 3.32KG <3
Had 2 sessions of breastfeeding so far.
The previous round, tried latching for 1hour plus.
He didn't suckle.
Mostly felt comfy and zzz.
Any tips to get them to suckle?
