When I fed my baby ebm and fm during his prolonged jaundice period, I would rinse the used bottle in cold water, then fill with hot water and a little bit of soap, Shake the bottle and let abit of it run though the teat, then leave it in a container. After I collected six dirty bottles then i will soap and clean in warm soapy water before sterilizing in sterilizer...

I went to my inlaws place to stay for a few days with my boy... mother in law kept hogging him and carrying all day, and I realized he doesn't cry for milk or root as often when he is carried by her or sister In law! Can last 2-3h between each feed in the day instead of just one hour intervals.. I guess because he can smell the milky smell on me and wants to latch for comfort mostly? Haha. Also, each feeding is longer now, about 15-20mins
cherryfrozz, maybe you can try asking other ppl to carry him around for abit and see if he still feeds that often?
but I'm a worrywart mommy, now, i worry instead that my milk supply will fall since he nurses less often :X
Littlekk guess your baby no reflux ? Congrats guess you can stretch to 2h then. For me if too long timing becomes dear son too hungry then will have vicious cycle of crying 4 milk, overfeed puke then crying for milk again.
My girl is 6 weeks old now.. anyone else facing a cranky baby? my girl would cry for half an hour before anything..... she would cry before latching and she would cry before sleeping.. *stressed*

My baby used to be very wakeful in the day. She can go through the day without a single nap, and someone must be playing with her or carrying her, if not she will cryyyyyy her lungs out. She also nursed like, every 1-1.5hours, so i was very tired, frustrated & emo that time. Hubby's support & my mum's help made a great diff.. Now my baby is 9wks old & better already.. So.. press on shinl!!
Yup, I experienced the same thing as faithee when my son was 6 weeks, super fussy baby esp at night, i had to sing to him, play music, white noise etc to try to soothe him. And now at 9 weeks, he is happy and smiley most of the time
I delivered on 10jun. My son is not sleeping well this week and often wants to be carried! He cluster feeds from 10pm to 1am. So I usually latch him till I fall asleep first haha. May I know how much breast milk should a 8 week old drink? My boy's intake decreased but shorter intervals and his poo is sometimes yellow sometimes orange. Is it normal?
hello.. thanks for your replies.. its comforting to know i am not the only one facing this. I thought I did something wrong somewhere thats why the stress o.o
sometimes its obvious she wants to latch because her mouth would be open so wide.. but when i offer her the breast she would start crying and push herself away.. i would need to carry her n walk around to soothe and try to offer again. sometimes.. maybe because i kept offering she became soooo angry at the breast.. but then when she's settled her mouth kept opening! so confusing
Wah that's good... thought reflux normally takes about 4 months to resolve...on a side note.. seems that my son's feeding timing is naturally extending... now stretching to 2 hour feeds! Good news for me, but becomes he pukes after each feed, but at least now is only few mouthfuls kind not the merlion type. More clothes to wash though...haa
I also dont know how much coz latch haha... but I think cluster feed that timing should b normal bah. Coz they need to feed more that timing to last the night. My son also.. but after that he can last till 4am or 5,6 am even. Color wise yah I observe his poo range from light yellow to dark mustard. But orange color so far I never c before.
Oh... that explains the orangey poo... think I ate something spicy. Got to monitor what we ate too. Btw do you ladies have supply issues? Im am still trying to biuld my supply and hope to stock eome before I return to work. But it seems like I only have just enough or have to supplement at times.
I built mine during the 2nd week cause the confinement nanny kept saying my milk not enough =.=
so i pumped after feeding for 3 days.. literally milking round e clock.. that was very very very tiring.. now i have enough to feed a twin lol and faced another problem shortly after.. my girl kept choking coz of the fast milkflow
Wah... can store alot! My 8 weeks old drinks about 90 to 120ml 2 to 2.5 hours intervals. I must jia you can keep drinking the milk tea and pumping!
I am going to intro formula milk in preparation of going back to work. How should I intro it? Let baby have one meal breast milk then next meal FM? Or feed breast milk then top up with FM?
i dont have experience but based on my friend's.. she does it by replacing breast milk by fm one meal a day. so for eg; today replace 9am feed by fm n e rest still do breast milk. tml replace 9am and 12nn feed by fm, e rest still do breast milk. continue till you replace fully by fm. she also advised me not to give the fm but let someone else do it as e baby may get confused and refuse the fm. hope this helps
yaaaa it is stressful especially when you know they want to feed but all they do is cry and get angry at the breast =.=Originally Posted by Potofstars:817273
i havent introduced bottle tho.. scared of nipple confusion.. i hand expressed on a towel to help buffer the fast flow lol..
Thanks shinl & potofstars!
Any mommies with back and shoulder aches~~? I used to use Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub =.= and was recently scolded by my mom who found out I was still using it (i used it before pregnancy and thought it was safe when girl's out) saying it's harmful to the baby. But I dont know what alternatives I have.. suggestions?
I go for massage instead..
