my baby is worst she cry the whole night and wont calm down.....
Shes now back in hospital for high jaundice, going to visit her later.
very stressful for ftm, cos dont know why shes crying.
For breast milk its hard cos we have a lot of aches and pains so carrying them for long is hard, got a friend to come and teach me how to bf. tips:
the most comfortable position is where you both lay down, if baby suckle for long which should be 15mins on each breast, at least we can rest.
baby falls asleep less then 5mins cos of wrong latching or getting little milk, you will know when baby makes a sucking sound which is air, baby should have not only your nipple but also the aerola, to get baby mouth open wide, tap on her chin, or wait till she cry, position your nipple just above the tip of her mouth and push it in fully when its wide. If baby not opening her mouth, squeeze some milk and rub your nipple from baby nose to mouth.
If baby falls asleep, you can :
pull out your nipple so she wont get used to it, i found out she will suckle and grab into it the next time, and wont take you for granted
Or gently poke her cheek
