Wow... Piglim I seriously wonder how heavy my baby is now... have not't been to pediatrician since the one on day 5 (is it normal? No one month appt too!) n no weighing scale at home... I'm getting really bad achy arms from carrying her... I worry end up like my friend whole arm got inflammation cannot move or carry things until do acupuncture :/
Lingz my baby also cry till whole face red n stuff the nipple n areola into her mouth she just continue wailing.. My mum will come n look why cry until like that.. Heartache from her extreme wailing but I will continue to try to latch... Maybe that's why I'm always latching forever... Initially my mum will still suggest give her the bottle instead cos the way she wails not good, keep sucking in air.. Now she just leaves me alone.
I dont pump after each feed cos each feed tires me out way too much to even think about pumping... I dont know need to empty out or not... I pump once/twice a day or not at all.. Really depends...
Reiann I guess many of us r getting sore nipples from latching :/ I started w nipple shield due to short nipples but my friend who is pro breastfeeding n pro attachment parenting shows me articles that using nipple shield should be last resort so I tried to let her latch without n managed successfully n have not used for a few days... Although also means more painful nipples when latching ><
