Thanks lingz for e info.. I will track closely again ..
Eeneyminey I didn't buy any formula before delivery also.. In Thomson Medical Center mine is fed w similac so now we have one small tin of similac as my supply like getting low yup like Lingz says I think is $1 per bottle.. Is ready to feed formula mix...
Mrsliaw got a lot of milk is a good thing, so envious now!! There was a short while I had leaking too but these two days suddenly supply hit new low... I get very distressed because of this have been crying since ytd... I know it's not good for milk supply.. But dont know why after latching day n night seems to be lesser n feel very sad about it as I worry baby doesn't have enough.. Now trying to latch n pump the whole day hoping to increase the supply back..
Can chk with you. Do you let your baby sleep in air con room or with fan on or totally nothing?
When baby was discharged I let him sleep with no fan or air con but just recently with e fan on cos baby seems to b sweating.
However everytime I breastfeed him in my air con room he slps better n longer.. (also dont know if becos my king size bed more comfy??) dont know whether I shld start letting him sleep in air con room or not.. Some says no good. Some says ok cos hospital also air conditioned...
Mine without aircon, fan not directly at her (blow upwards to circulate air cos im not supposed to have it blown at me also although when I'm not in my room I dont care) and she does sweat but I do swaddle her. She wear short sleeved top n diapers only... W swaddle when sleeping... Usually her arms not in swaddle as she doesn't like n struggle a lot.
Sigh I just pumped... 30ml combined only!! Not even half of her one feed. I dont know what happened, I used to have 110ml feeling so miserable... Now die die have to supplement w fm ...
Ya now Thomson Medical Center got new rules and will charge $1 for feeding fm to baby. I was thinking whether need to get fm or not just in case that i got no milk yet and baby got jaundice thus need to supplement with fm to make baby pee n poo more..
nearby my house got ntuc, but i heard that ntuc and most supermarket now dont really sell infant fm anymore because they sort of want to promote tbf to everyone..
maybe will get from Thomson Medical Center pharmacy like you if really needed..
My girl is sucking very well... Milk flow starting slowly...
I started maasage anyone wrap?? I find so diff to latch on... Aiyo hw .. Any advice??? On 1 hand wanna masage to help in e flow... Now i feel i smell.diff wonder baby still wans me... So sads e lady says leave it till tmrw..
On e other hand i wanna latch as much as possible but not enuff milk so topping with fm...
I just came back from check up.. cervix not dilated, baby also not engaged.. sighz..
She seems to be growing well though, gynae said normal size, but i still think it's on the small size.. measuring 2775gr on 37wk6d. but now, i dont really feel sad or anything even if she is small, healthy can alrd. and my gynae seems happy because the baby not so big, so got higher chance of me doing it naturally..
anyway, i'm more concern of my cervix now.. haihh.. gynae said can wait for the baby to be engaged and cervix to open up until edd, but if until edd still no sign, then can try to induce if i still insist want to try normal, or straight away c sect. but she mentioned induce will have higher risk to have emergency c sect coz she got limit. 12 hours of induce, if no progress then c sect alrd..
i'm thinking to go straight c sect if that's the case.. any opinion?
I stayed in st rapheal. Double ward. ;-)Originally Posted by mrsliaw:692762
So envy you got so much milk.
Rental of Medela Freestyle
maybe it's a sign you're in labor soon!!!!! SO envious.
Eeneyminey, that sounds like a good weight! dont't worry just prepare for a smooth delivery ^^
Eeneyminey, when they induce it means they will break water bag, if within 12 hours you can push baby out, there would be no water inside so you must c sect ....
I'm also in the same boat, I already overdue but my baby still not out so doc make me set a date to induce, afraid baby will eat her own poop.
So i pray hard she come out natural soon.
Just came back from gynae checkup. Glad that he did not check for any cervix dilation. Baby weight somehow remains at 3.1kg, but my weight drops. Gynae just said can be anytime..
Hey mummies, my friend was telling me that to treat sore nipples , we can try using own breastmilk or colostrum apply around the nipple... she said it offered more relief than the creams while felt abit sticky or like not very yummy for baby to latch.. not sure if it works! but do try! I have not't got my tube of lanolin yet!
I'm nervous about this waiting game! every kick or major movement, i'll be wondering if its time already.. though i still go around shopping and eating.. still got something at the back of my head ... haha or rather in my tummy waiting like a time bomb! haha let's jiayou together!
I still not sure how my mother in law will come to support.. i live in a walkup apartment, and she will need to climb 3 storeys to visit.. she may not want.. and she got some arthritis cannot walk much or carry heavy weight.. sigh i'm still wondering if i should quit after maternity to take care of baby myself.. But for now, i think most impt is to deliver first! In my heart i can't wait, but i am so afraid of the pain that's gonna come!! gosh.. really praying for smooth delivery!
Yea treating sore nipples with your own breast milk is also a good solution... I've read that in a lot of places too..
I can't wait to have this baby... Meltie I'm the same like you, sometimes when I feel extra pressure on my pelvis or my stomach tightening, I keep waitin for it to come again so I can term that as a contraction but it never really comes back...
Can't wait for when I'll be running to hospital and then will update all you girls here that I'm finally in labor..
Eeneyminey your baby is of nice weight for now... Sigh I dont't even know how much my baby weighs, the doctor has stopped measuring.. But from the size of my stomach everyone who has seen me recently says its like a 7th month stomach so I'm sure my baby is gonna be teeny tiny little one..
it's late, but I can't sleep.
I have not't updated you all that I bought a Medela breastpump yesterday - erm, Thursday evening (those of you considering buying a Medela, should check out http://www.mummysg.com/forums/f81/my...74/index2.html. I think Ris does shopping sprees or buy a whole lot of Medela breastpumps from the US and sells them here, nothing unusual as many women do that so for e.g. a price of a Medela freestyle pump ranges usually in the S$500 price range, but Ris sells it only for $460! no warranty, but I thought, at that price, it'd be worth a try as it's brand new in box and sealed. her price is probably the most competitive of the lot. even a new non discounted one in the US would be about S$420))
oops, got carried away. anyway, bought and picked up the breast pump from her, and I got it so urgently cos I was sick of waiting for labor, and my gynae has already said that nipple stimulation would help, and I read about breastpump helping to stimulate nipples, so I went to get it.
(and of course I also needed a breast pump sooner or later).
that night, I tried it.. pumped my breasts for about 15 minutes. was a very strange feeling, and I'm not that keen on it. I leaked colostrum!! I was overjoyed (cos I remember reading some of you pre-delivery already leaking colostrum).
that was thursday. on friday afternoon I 'pumped' again, at 3pm, and took a nap. went for a nice dinner with husband, came home and took a shower, and went to bed but my husband walked in and said 'your mucus plug is in the shower. it's really gross' -_- I leapt up and hey it is there!!!! it means my cervix is starting to dilate and thin, I think? I was overjoyed. it might mean that the breast pump is working, in that stimulating my nipples does trigger the onset of labor!
and I fell asleep.. but before I did I felt mild tummy cramps, but it was nothing unusual as I've been getting it quite often the past week+, but at about 2am I woke from it again, went to bathroom, cleared bowels.. and now still can't sleep. I think they are cramps, but I shall call them discomfort - they were 'stronger' when I was lying down sideways. since I am too excited to sleep, I got up and thought I should share this with those of you very impatient to deliver! maybe a breast pump would help!
I just hope it's the start of something, even if it takes days...
I felt crampings again at 3am, 4am..
and at 4.45am, a gush! my water bag broke!
preparing to head to hospital soon, but really, hardly any contractions, so I'll just wait till 6am. some of my friends had this before, water bag broke and they waited a bit before heading in. maybe I'm way too excited - but not feeling much (ok I know I'm so going to regret this later).
