Meltie my baby drinks alot of milk at night (if this helps) i noticed. Ill feed him 4oz by 9pm then after 30 mins he wil ask for milk again so ill make another 3 oz and give it to him he either finish it or lil bit leftover then he will fall asleep till he gets hungry (like 30 mins ago about 2pm). Now im pumping milk. As baby gets older they become wiser too, they know they wont work hard int the bottle unlike sucking breast so dont be disheartened, try to decide if you want to give baby ebm or latching.. So your baby wont get nipple confusion as this stage.

Wa felicity, you are very creative .. Tink I will learn from you and keep singing to her.. Though I dont tink I can sing whole day too.. Haha.. I did the mummy love you and mummy sayang you thing too, though onli wen she's cranky and I'm trying to soothe her.. Haha.. As for reading books I never buy anything to read to her ...Maybe I will go online to buy too.. Hee..
hey felicity, i also sing happy bday song! lol and made up some songs w new tunes , just one or 2 lines.. baby charlotte, drink milk milk , blah blah blah.... i'm thinkingof what i can sing or do to prep her to bathe.. so far i bathed her myself yesterday for the first time.. she pee and kicked alot on me.. wailed as usual... :/ hope i can make bath time fun for her...
Hope your baby is sleeping now! Hmm i just woke up at 4am to latch, baby drank for 20mins on the right.. and she slept.. can't burp too.. had to put her dwn around 4.40am... then i went to pump and store milk.. just done.. zzz i find myself so hardworking man.. latch n pump.. taking 1.5hrs... left less then an hr to rest before baby wakes up again.... good nite /morn to all!
Today will be a better day!
hey lizzy, thanks for your DOM n berry essence! I was having a messy noght, havent started to drink... will try tml! Shld drink after feeding? at least let the alcohol flush out of system?
Hmm your baby drinks quite alot! Hmm my baby has her own measurement of appetite, she will stop drinking when its enough for her.. recently all the snacking made her overfed i guess, end up she has been vomitting alot out.. almost every feed also got regurgitate or vomit.. some of it can be as much as 30ml i think... denshe gets super cranky n cry non stop, then snack again... until i dont know how much ebm to supplemebt her.. in the end latch better.. but she'll be chewing frantically.... :/ dont know if your method will work on my baby... i'm also concerned about nipple confusion.. so far i feel she's getting quite well w latching in day n bottle ar night... my milk supply low so i latching her whole night for now too... super tiring..
She slept n woke up again n whole night I went to bring baby out of cot, latch her n changed her diaper etc, tired max.. N all my hubby does was to grumble why baby kept crying so noisy, without moving an inch to help.. I'm so frustrated n exhausted already, feel like kicking him off the bed. Ugh!!
Hee yea make up new songs or use familiar tunes... I use happy birthday song's tune n sing "good morning skyler" x4 to her every morning... Then I'll ask her to say good morning mummy.. Haha.. But today.. I just hope I get to sleep later... Zzz...
Zz my baby is up again.. latching her too.. wah whole night never get to sleep much... wondering if i take care myself , how long can i last .... any more efficient way? i'll be alone w baby in the day from month 2, and at noght hubby sleep , cannot expect him to wake up to feed coz he got sch next day....
Ya same here. A lot of friends keep asking me to sleep when baby sleep. But, not always possible coz baby dont't really sleep through for 2 or 3 straight, excluding the coaxing her to sleep time. The insufficient sleep and tiredness is causing me headache and body ache, which make me harder to take care of her. When will the cycle end? Haha, sometimes, just wish can outsource for awhile..
Now her eyes are wide open, staring at me. Oh dear.. Does she want milk again? She just had..
Sighz.. baby also cranky last night.. After her feed at 4am, she refused to sleep.. No matter how I pat her or switch off all the lights telling her it's night time and she should sleep, she just refused to.. Then kept fidgeting, grunting and finally crying.. Removed her soiled diaper and before I insert the new one, she pooed all over then changing mat.. Cleaned up the mat, cleaned up her butt again, insert new diaper and she pooed again.. Argh! Clean butt again, remove diaper and she pooed on changing mat again.. I really want to cry.. Finally put on fresh diapers and she decided she's hungry again after all e pooing.. So latch and latch and latch for almost 2hrs! Was so relieved seeing her close her eyes.. She actualli smiled in her sleep.. Milk monster!
Lingz exactly!! I kept saying my baby is a milk monster when she used to latch nonstop every waking hour!! Now I'm latching her again... I want sleep...
Yup erlina.. Everyone says sleep when baby sleep, my mum also says.. But she doesn't really sleep in the day... Not even up to an hour!!! At night usually she can sleep better but last night was terrible... Latched from 1+ to 2+, 3+ to 4+, 5+ to 6 and now latching again... In the day she latches every hour so there goes my rest... Sigh..
Meltie jiayou!! It's super tiring but we can all do it! We r super mummies!!! Zzzz...
Hey Lingz and felicity jiayou! I'm latching my baby again.. so fast hungry again.. just fed at 6.30am, 7.30am hungry.. zzz i dont know if i can last today..... i need a break!
Yup let's all jiayou!! Now I'm with baby while my buns r steaming n water boiling... Gg to bathe her soon... Hope after bathing n latching she will sleep a bit more n I can rest!
Wow vern baby bathe so early! I normaly bathe baby 11+ baby woke up 2am for milk and 5am again.. I should change his sleeping patterns cos his 5 hours straight is from 9pm to 2am but thing is how will i do it lol
Just wanna check did any of your baby goes to you just for comfort suck... Recently i increase my baby intake so ytd she had 100ml then 1 hr later 40ml... N she still wanna latch... I scare i over fed her. .. After latch 5mins ko!! Many times .. Sum times she have not even latch on will sleep on my boobs...
Middle of e night i stop supplementing with fm full latch on.. But ytd night after her last feed of ebm.at 10pm.. She woke up at three to change diapers n only latch 15mins on 1 side... Then ko!! I wonder if enuff... Coz day time she will latch both sides.... Then 5+she latch another 10mins zzz till 7.45.am like that enough when she's awake she.drank n drank sonetimes is fm... I scare bf too little.... N i cant really pump after latch like no milk... Wondering if my 'well' dried up isit
Lizzy haha I chop chop get it over n done w she just blasted a shot of explosive poo into the tub as i was about done bathing her.. Quickly got her out of the contaminated tub n wipe her omg >< luckily she was calm throughout her bathe n only started crying as i was dressing her.. now baby latching again...
Rodorsany, my baby I dont know is it comfort suckle cos she will suckle every hour these days n on one side only :/ snacking her way thru the day n almost doesn't sleep!! Keep having to latch her, entertain her or coax her.. Middle of night usually she also suckles hungrily on one side only n fell asleep... If you keep latching I dont think will dry up one... That's what I read jiayou!!!
Hey rodorsany, my baby also! Hmm was latching uer whole of this morning feeds.. she wakes up crying hungry, i fed her on 1 breast like around 10mins, she falls into deep sleep.. and i can't get her to burp .. and she just doesn't stir like in the day, to switch breast... i also dowan to wake her up coz i suoervtored, just wanna put her down to sleep.. but this happened through the night.. hence she seems like she's not fed fully and keep waking up every 1hr-2hrly.... zzz I am wondering 10 -15mins feed on 1 breast , is it enough? Or how can i make her interested to take on the other breast and feed till full?
I also have that 'dry-up' feeling esp i pumped at 4.30am, baby woke up to feed 1hr after that.. and she suckled around 15mins and fell aslp, most of the time did not hear her swallow one.. like sucking nothing and i feel very dry.... :/
Justamom: WHAT????? Your CL asked you to FM for.those stupid reasons????? Wtf. Sorry. I'm very angry with her. No good CL would tell you to do that. She is telling you To feed fm just so she can sleep longer at night!! That's horrific. Please please please dont't feed fm. You should really try 100% breast milk. You can! Good grief! And there was a thud when she places our baby down?!?!? I'd fire her on the spot!! Seriously. Please take care and stand firm. And it's UTTER rubbish that feeding baby 100% breast milk will give diarrhea. What sort of crap is that? So all through human history, women bf their babies and they get diarrhea? And where does those CL think women in the past and women living in poverty with no access to fm feed their babies!??
Sigh. I get so angry when I hear people with supposed more knowledge bully new mums and lie to them or ttell such rubbish, unfounded facts. Hang in there with bf!
rodosany / meltie ,
initially I hav tis prob too , after feed with fm still keep crying .. then latch not more than 2 mins.. baby sleep .. hence he just want comfort suck .. no choice I intro pacifier to him ..cos was thinking Hw if I head to wrk or outside shopping mall .. if he gt tis habit .. more difficult to train him again ..n care giver will hav prob coaxing him to sleep .. as already so used to suckle nipple before sleep .. sigh now still training him to get use of pacifier .. not easy .. sigh .. just feel that latching having more probs ..nipple confusion n they actually reject bottle feed .. even now I try change new bottle teats .. my baby refused keep crying .. no choice change back to old ones .. headache sometimes .. !!
Meltie: good for you and husband for telling he CL off. She sounds really bad.
Dont be too down about the milk thing. Actually what you are doing will super ramp up milk production! Pump then latch then pump latch..
Oh and I went to buy latex pacifier yesterday. It was worth it just to see my
baby's reaction when I stuffed it in her mouth. Haha she spat it out with a disgusted llook on her face. She took to it later but never suckling for very long. I'll only use it when in the day, I want her to nap and she's not sleeping, I'll give it to her.. have not't used it since..
Purpur baby took pacifier... Coz i intro long ago.. But when needed will give her But not from me... Think she very smart.. No nipple confusion.... Coz my husband or dear daughter or mother in law give her pacifier she took... I give... She wail... Give her my boobs shut up!!! Lol
Reiann: yup after checking w some other mummies they also mentioned that not mixing breast milk n fm will not give diarrhoea.. that's nonsense..! think she wants to zzz longer...just waiting for 11more days before she leaves! Ya I was like shocked when she places his head down to the mat..he cried after that thud! OMG !! Was thinking of asking her leave earlier but hubby says another 11more days to endure!!
Reiann.. I agree should not give fm for conveniece sake!
Btw Had a talk with mother in law ytd.. She support me in partial firstly coz im not a full time stay at home mum... 2nd my milk not alot... 3rdly i get to rest... She says breast milk is good.. But issue is if due to less milk stress no point.. Just give whatever I have... She mention if got surplus to store she'll clean up e freezer to store.. So now just give whatever i have.. dont fret coz stressing over it wont increase flow..
Oh yah she mention about baby wants me carry put to sleep or comfort suck all these are e bond build fm bf... baby will want no one other than mommy.. Bond build will never b broken... So mommies jiayou e bonding very impt.. Treasure every little moment.. Think of it... Tired worth it.. Coz money cannot buy!! Of coz those who btl feed bonding can also b build up!!
Justamom... Do not give in... Imagine if you did not hear or notice hw will e cl treat your baby....
If can change i would say... For me I will not let anyone hurt my child... Unless over my dead body...
Oh yah.. Other than singing n reading.. Can recite poems... Thats what I'll do occasionally
Mayb #2 .. I learnt alot of songs n stories and poems... Mandarin english cantonese.. Hahaha there's something I'll do too.. Signing.. My #1 now learning proper ones from me and #2 song signing
