Ladies, know for colostrum only need feed max each side 15mins...coz its so little anyway n may risk sore nipples....how about for interim milk. R we supposed to feed until baby satisfied b it 1/2 hr or so?
The motion is watery ..not hard want. Is it the same?
Breast milk will make baby's stool running.
Did Anyone experience baby crying non stop without any reason? I mean without any obvious reason - not hungry, not wet...
Maybe you over feed, keep your baby upright after feed, try gentle massage around stomach, chest and back and cuddle your baby. If can't stop better see pediatrician.
They say colic baby, no matter how you coax them, they still cry. if your baby cry but if you coax, or carry will stop.. Means maybe just want comfort. Sometimes they cry due to being over-tired.
babies cried for a reason. listen to your baby's cried, is he/she has a longer vowel sound? it can be lower wind/colic, baby probably wanted a cuddle because he/she is scared? does he/she cried more in the evening?

Anyone of your babies got jaundice problem?
I went poly today and last check the level was 187. Today was 183 and the doctor seems like saying the dropping rate very slow.. So end up took another blood test to do indirect and direct bilirubin.
I'm kinda worried now.. Anyone with experience and share?
Yes my baby had jaundice too. Level 180. Doc told me to let my baby drink more formula milk and it works. Milk to flush the jaundice out. And sun the baby for 20'min at 8am and 4pm. I did not sun my baby cos i find the sun rays too strong. Now my baby is fine after the level peaks on day 7
Before i take fenugreek, i only have droplets of milk. With fenugreek, i can pump 20ml. Then recently doc gave me medicine( side effect is sleepy for mum) , milk supply doubled.
Any mummies know when will milk increase if do power pumping. Been pumping every 2-3 hours for 2 days now, seems stagnant? No matter how I pump only 20,30 ml...no increase. Issit normal?
I did try latch on but baby always sleep and dont't want to suck. Any advised to keep baby suck while I carry him? And how to know baby having enough milk or satisfy ??
I did try to touch his mouth, foot and hand but he always sleep. If I place him on bed, always wake up and end up I gave him formula
Thanks for your advise.
I already bought fenugreek and lactating milk and seems working. I will see in a couple days.
