Congrats Irah! Best of luckmelti, havea smooth delivery!
Meltie good luck to you!! Wishing you a smooth and safe delivery..
Last night n this morning... baby cried when latching... Didnt get to latch in e end... Sobz!!!! Boobs letting down.. She just refused to suckle... Whole breast pad soaked...
This morning mother in law can make a comment"she dont like e feeling " wah lau eh.... How hurting that can be... Ytd afternoon baby still latching ....
dont know hw long I can tahan such remarks n baby's crying.... She cried till so fierce!!!
mother in law says becoz i keep pumping... Thats y baby dont wanna suck....But i wanna try give baby as much breast milk as possible... Y cant they uds???
Am thinking of giving up on latching n do exclusive pumping... dont know if i could sigh.... Anyone doing eping? Cant bear to hear baby cry all e time till voice hoarse...
*hugs rodorsany* just keep trying!! I was devastated with the way she fusses and struggles and also cries till voice all hoarse when latching also but these two days slightly better she can latch on faster... So dont give up!! Now I pump once a day or not at all.. But bad thing is, not building up on my arsenal of breast milk!
I was whining in another thread I created under the breastfeeding mummies support group forum here... Someone mentioned could be nipple confusion n when I read up.. The symptoms r all so familiar! So I trying not to bottle feed her.. The most once a day let daddy bond w her a bit.. I hope she can associate daddy to bottle n mummy to breasts n not get confused anymore!!
Meltie!! Yr wait is over!! Jiayou!!! baby wants to say Hi to you!!
Wow! Reading how determined you girls are with regards to breastfeeding makes me more motivated and continue to strive on.
I also had problems breastfeeding. Mother n mother in law not very supportive. mother in law even worse, prefer to give FM.
And it doesnt help that baby hasnt poop for about 5 days now. And he has lost his chubbiness comparing to day 1.
Im envious of mothers who can pump and get so much ebm. Mine is very pathetic. I barely get 10ml for each pumpin session. So i directly latch most of the time. Using medela swing to pump. Not sure if its me or perhaps i shld try another pump.
I knew about nipple confusion... Its really e crying that drives me nuts n e kinda attitude ils are giving me... Praying hard baby will b cooperative n dont stunt me....Originally Posted by felicity:696675
Just thinking next alt best is ebm.. But this will in turn tired me out n zap me of e time i have... My #1 is reacting by wanting my attn....
When only 1 is easier with 2 tough... I wonder how those mummies with many kids handle...ytd no one disturb baby can latch though fuss for a while... Hope later can ... sigh... Damn stressed... No appetite to eat at all... Now eat to me is to produce milk
Yup I really respect some of my colleagues with 4 kids and some age gap not even big, need to bf for both the bigger kid n the baby!! Salute!! Initially planned 2 years later another kid, now really dont know how to handle.. See how first ><
My ils have not't been commenting about me bf baby so far ok.. But ytd baby shower our neighbor brought her 5 month old baby up n mother in law asked her feed breast milk or fm.. She say fm.. Then mother in law was like wah drink fm so big n chubby , so cute.. I just keep quiet.. My baby also chubby what, hummprf!
mother in law just squeezed fresh orange juice for me using unchilled oranges.. Sometimes really appreciate her also.
But father in law is the one will get on my nerves. We dont really talk and he is the type dont do anything never help w hsework just sleep or go downstairs drink beer type. Now one more task.. Carry my baby.. He pampers her.. But he always at home topless n sweating all over when carrying her :/ then he likes to make irritating noises to "pacify" or play with baby.. When baby poo he can say poot poot to her nonstop for like 5 min.. I dont like! I want my gal first word to be mummy, not some irritating noises!! >< everytime mother in law told me to eat or watever just let father in law carry.. I dont want make noise so open one eye close one eye.. Most of the time baby cry only I say need to latch her n quickly go into my room n close door..
Oh n ytd a friend who visited.. Her gal around 2 years old.. she said dont need be too persistent if need to feed a bit fm just feed.. She said she has been very persistent n have to fight her mother in law (finally her own flat coming end of this year) who everytime hear baby cries say need to make fm for baby n my friend die die want tbf.. She said she had a hard time and very stressed n now looking back.. Maybe dont have to be do hard on herself, n told me just relax, have milk feed, not enough just supplement dont be so harsh on myself.. So just to share, from an experienced mummy.. Haha..
Which vaccination is suitable for baby? 6 in 1 or individual injection?
Rodorsany.. Me having the same problem too! Initially I express milk out so that all e consistent pumping can help boost the milk supply.. Then now I'm like over-relying on EBM.. Also hate it wen my CL just waste my EBM.. Keep force-feeding my girl if she fuss.. Wen sometimes all she wans is to be carried.. So I want to try to latch more now.. But baby keeps rejecting me.. We dont use to hav problems with latching .. now she totally rejects my right nipple.. and I have to try for like 10min before she can latch onto my left nipple, provided I can tahan her screams and wails.. I can totally understand wen you say your girl has fierce cries.. Mine do too! So most of the time I gave in to EBM cos I can't bear to see her wail like that..Originally Posted by Rodorsany:696663
dont know what I can do to make her accept me again.. It is depressing.. Last time we have no issues with latching .. Sighz.. My mum say I Mus still continue with pumping so thay CL can help with feeding at night.. Else what is e point of hiring a CL if I dont get rest..
Sighz.. I hope baby grows out of her fussy stage soon!
sigh, i think the only way is to be able to tahan the fierce wailing and let baby try to latch until baby get used to it :/ i really try to stuff my aroela into her mouth while she wails... n she will bite n so painful n she cries n i cry too >< that time confinement both of us crying thru the night damn shag... now she latches on easier.. only when she's too tired yet refuse to sleep then will cry n fuss a lot at the breast. sometimes she will literally pause n freeze her actions, hands in mid air, eyes open, mouth open, motionless.. scare the hell out of me have to check her pulse make sure she's ok. she can stay motionless for a while then later "play" and continue.. think she too tired temporarily knock herself out.. anyone baby also like that?
But I can't tahan her wails.. Like I'm ill treating her.. Sobz.. For me wen she bites, it means she's latching on oredi.. So I rather she bites.. Though very painful .. Esp now nipples like perpetually sore.. But most times now she got very frustrated cos she could not get a good suction I tink.. She will open her mouth and I stuff the aerola in but it will slip out of her mouth then she will wail and fuss and do her wayang with her hands.. And I have to keep repeating until she managed to get a good suction.. For my right nipple she just dont even want to try.. But wen I squeeze got milk .. Sighz.. Feel like gg on full-time expressing.. But I like it wen she latches.. Argh.. Dilemma..Originally Posted by felicity:696770
Lings same tots... But eping is gg to b very.xiong... Just now finally managed latch her on...
I let her rest on my bed while i express... Coz i know nearing to her.feeding time i lock door so ils cant do anything... I keep singing n praising baby for being able to latch on... Though painful but at least she latch.on after multiple attempts... But seems like she's not full so supplement with ebm...
Let's jiayou i wanna try to b successful in latching her so night time easy also just push my boobs to her lol.. (my tots)
I know... I've been supplementing with fm... 1 day she will take about 2~3 feeds of fm depending on my supply..Originally Posted by felicity:696748
Sum how my pump cant seem to pump very well.... Hmmmm too big e boobs e issue??!!!!
Actually what is e difference between latching directly n pumping out using bottle feed breast milk ??
Is it bcos latching will produce more breast milk compare to pumping ??
Anyway, i going for inducing this coming wed ..
Purpur, its okay. As long as you n baby is well. Keep strong for baby.
Pur not much diff... Just latching on helps to bond even further... Both latching n ebm are same milk.. Same nutrients
My supply low too...
Anyway jiayou! Nothing wrong with inducing... My #1also induced...
Purpur, not much difference between latching and expressing.. Like they say latching the feeling is different.. The bond is different.. Plus latch dont need to wash and sterilize pump parts and bottles! Haha..
Anyway dont worry about being induced.. My girl's also induced.. We are both fine! Jia you!
