Mummies who have given birth.. I have questions regarding post-delivery care.. Hope you all can share.
Did you all shower after delivery? Or "confinement" rules kick in already and cannot shower? How to keep clean down there since menses come and we cannot shower? And also I heard from a friend that we should avoid touching water, her hand was in great pain after her confinement cos she kept washing her hands. So cannot wash hands or wash face?
and any constipation? That's my greatest fear of all
Jia you everyone! Hopefully i can go home w my lil girl tomorrow. I need a good recommendation for nipple cream!!! So painful but very fulfilled so cannot give up!
Have a smooth delivery! Keep telling yourself "I am in control and breathe~~ 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10..." repeatedly. It worked for me!
Congrats Yanting and kcws!! I've been missing in action past few days as the iPhone app kept kicking me out and I didn't have access to a laptop.
How is everyone so far? I'm struggling with my confinement nanny. She wants to always bottle feed baby so can sleep longer and keeps saying my milk not enough. Of course not enough compared to your 60ml formula !!
My gynae gave me medicine for constipation, she asked me to take it if by day three I still can't poo. I am more worried on the cleaning after I poo as I had episiotomy.
Anybody looking for confinement nanny? I have mine to highly recommend. She is very experienced and used to be from a reputable agency but now working on her own so looking for clients. She can cook excellent confinement dishes, have knowledge of herbs and traditional chinese medicine. Her handling of baby is highly raved. She sings n talks to my boy when he is awake. Can tell she is very passionate in her work.. My boy was born 3.20kg but now he's a month old and almost 4.5kg! She is pro-breastfeeding and even helped me to get hot towel to massage my breasts. My breast milk is over productive thanks to her cooking.. So I am helping her to find her next customer as she is very good! Interested pls PM me, I am sure she will be very popular once she is in the market for sometime n not bounded by agency. you can quote my name to get a discount!
Thanks kcws for the update! It's really helpful
yes stellaC! I m also wondering the same thing about showering n washing of hands!
a mummy - does glens provide like bath towels in case I need to shower? Ha..
any mummies donating the cord blood to public instead of private? We just decided and they must take 3 tubes of blood before I pop. As if I m not in enough pain
still waiting patiently for my turn.. Will try to enjoy the last week!
Yikes - heard from my cousin in law that medela nipple cream works!! She says becoz of that she dares to bf! you can try?
hi all, my edd is on 26 sept, very excited but a bit scared...
Try talk to someone who do full breastfeed to encourage you, ask your CL stop talking that you dont't have enough milk. Every new mummy need time to boost up supply. My sister in law dont' have milk at first 2 week at all, she manage to bf her baby more than 6 month. You can do it also.
Hi mummies, was just looking at the thread cos it reminded me of myself last year! I'm a sept mummy too! My boy will be 1 on 24th
Have been fully bf my boy for close to a year now. I remember it was tough at first, with baby crying for milk every few hours. It makes you wonder if you have enough milk. But dont't give in easily to fm! Just let nature take its course! If there's demand, there'll be supply let baby continue suckling and latching and your supply will be established
Drink plenty of fluids and soups! It may be painful at first, bear with it and your body will get used to it.
Have a great journey ahead with your loved one mummies
