thanks so much..yup..her poo came out on paste form though she no poo for 3 days. Today 2nd day..will wait n see. Stress about tis poo thingy. :$ I have done the massage but no poo yet.
my baby will cry when she fart sometimes. :$
my gal has both colic n gastro reflux. Colic is cry at certain time every nite. Gastro reflux baby like to tilt her head backwards. Hope your baby ok..should bring to see doctor.
My baby likes to tilt her head backward.. But she never cry or show discomfort.. Does she have gastro reflux? How to cure?
Did you bring her to see doctor as well? My boy usually tilt backwards when feeding as can see he is suffering but yet he want to feed badly . So we have to keep trying. Not every feed but also happen at certain time during feed. I guess more of gastro reflux ? I might bring him to see doc if getting worse. What do you give for the colic?
If suspect your baby has colic, perhaps can try to buy anti-colic milk bottles... More popular brands are from Dr Brown or Tommie tippee... Maybe that can help
Hi shirix n sgnz
if your baby no cry, think should not be gastro reflux.
My baby cry suddenly n refused to drink when she has gastro reflux..then pediatrician teach me faster give 5ml gripe water mix with 5ml water n let her drink, then she will stop cry n continue with milk. It works. She also has to drink 2 medicine & 1 rid wind medicine. Very sad that she has to eat medicine but if no eat, she keep cry.
Colic is eat rid wind medicine for 1 week n it will improve. Can buy rid wind from pharmacy. We try gripe water but think no help n rid wind helps.
you mean the bottle itself is anti colic? Coz thought anti colic is the teat only? Thanks.
My baby cry when she fart..anyone experience tis? I want to increase my milk supply coz baby needs breast milk due to allegory to cow's milk. Anyone has ways to help? I thought of buying the sacred tea from 'origins jamu massage'...anyone tried before? Thanks
@barneybaby: The tips I got from online research and friends for boosting milk supply are:
- to eat oats
- drink brown rice tea
- drink fish and papaya soup
- must have sufficient fluid intake
- adequate rest
- relax when expressing or breastfeeding
- breastfeed on demand so that body knows how much milk baby needs
do you want to try Fenugreek??
I have got 2 types of fenugreek. Bought it few months ago as I thought I won't have enough supply of breast milk but I got oversupply now.
So dont need now.
1) capsule type: 2 bottles of GNC 610mg fenugreek. Bought for $29.50 but selling at $20 now. Expiry date July 2015
2) liquid type: 2 bottles of 60ml organic fenugreek that I bought from iherb.com for about $18. Selling at $10. Expiry date Feb 2016.
Let me know if any mummies is interested.
Happy new year mummies!
Barneybaby, some brands have both the normal and anti-colic range, so check and get the anti-colic ones. Yeah, the bottle nipples are specially designed to prevent too much wind from getting into baby when drinking from bottle. I just started using Tommie tippee closer to nature range, which also supposedly helps prevent colic... Keeping fingers crossed! haha
Sorry. No offence.
Like to ask, how did you manage to have so much breast milk? My baby is now 7 wks old. But he every time is crying for milk. I tried hand express, only around few drops. Been taking fenugreek, not much effect. Very tired..
This is how I increases my supply.
I drank a lot of water and soup everyday.. If possible try to drink papaya fish soup. After every latch, I try pump for 15mins. Started off with only 20ml then slowly increases. I also completely clear my breast by hand express after using electric pump. I pump almost every 3 hours even in the night.
This is my 2nd baby. First baby, I took fenugreek to increase my supply and it works well for me. 2nd baby, more prepared so somehow had more supply.
3 impt questions for you: Have you been expressing correctly using hands?? Is your baby latching properly? How much fenugreek are you taking?
Hope this helps. jia you!!
Guess I need to do more frequent pumps after latch. But how much do you have for each pump after latch? Enough supply for next feed and in time?
As I'm going back to work soon, I do exclusive pumping now.. I can pump about 1.3-1.5L per day.. My baby only drank 400-500ml a day so I stored the rest.
thanks so much but I just brought fenugreek. But I dare not eat as worry got side effects like headache, etc??? How you find eating last time? Can we stop anytime n wont affect the supply or once start can't stop if not will drop in supply?? So you mean tis 2nd baby..you didnt take fenegreek? my baby dont latch 1 week after birth n i bottle feed express breast milk.. do you mean you do latching n you didnt use bottle at all since birth..& therefore able to achieve good milk supply? heard if keep latching from start, the supply will be good but if we do pump out, supply might be harder to be good. How much water you drink per day? I drink quite alot but throat still dry everyday..so it means still not enough water?
I drink papaya fish soup once a week..is it enough? what other soup I can make? My supply now is 20ml left breast n 40 ml on right breast.
Very urgent to hope my supply will be good for my baby as its abit special case.
i just got the dr brown bottles..hope it's good. thanks so much.
I took fenugreek for my first baby and my side effect is I got slight diarrhea.. But good for me coz last time I have got constipation problem but the diarrhea only lasted for a while. Think my body is adjusting to the fenugreek.. I took 4 Gnc pills initially.. Then as my supply increases, I reduce the dosage to 2 pills.. I slowly reduce the intake of fenugreek..
My second baby, I never take fenugreek.. Naturally a lot of milk as I latched and pumped for the first month then pumped exclusively for the 2nd month...
I took a lot of water too.. Not sure how much though.. But same as you my throat still abit dry..
Actually can drink more than once of the papaya soup, I drank about 2 -3 days of papaya soup each week and for lunch and dinner..
