Envy you all... can feed baby directly~
My dear daughter likes to use my nipples as soother, she can latch for 2 hours and still drink full serving of FM =(
Now i usually express out to feed her, meaning more stuffs than just teats and bottles to wash.

世上只有妈妈好。-like that dont't need papa .
but for us women in developed countries, our milk are still of good quality .. but good balanced diet is VERY important coz when your diet lacks a certain nutrient, your body will dip into it's own body to supply it to breastmilk.. e.g if you lacks calcium in your diet, your milk will stil have calcium, but you will suffer from osteoporosis and maybe weak teeth and nails too.. Good diet is for our own good..
but , the FATS in the milk can be affect in some ways .. i was reading up on how to increase the fats in our breastmilk, it seems tht the only way is to latch frequently and empty the breast each time..
one interesting point to note is that our diet can affect what kind of fats is more in our milk.. if a woman always eat unhealthily, e.g fried foods ~ meat ~ the percentage of saturated fats(aka. bad fats) would be higher.. if a woman take in very little saturated fats and more unsaturated fats(aka. good fats), the percentage of good fats in her breastmilk would be more than bad fats.. source of good fats can be from olives, olive oil, nuts, peanut oil, canola oil and avocados, and some oily fishes like cod fish and salmons

do take sometime to read this:
kellymom.com :: Fenugreek for Increasing Milk Supply
She'd rather wail until shes tired then sleep, and suck on her little fingers than drink from the bottle
When she was a month old, there were a few instances where we got her to drink from the bottle n she was ok, didnt drink very willingly, but at least she drank. Now shes 9 weeks old, she has been on "hunger strike" for a few days heart very pain
The only person who managed to get her to drink, was my grandma, even then, she only drank 60ml. from 8am-730pm she only drank that 60ml, and is genna bluffed to drink one. Then at 730pm i latched her on, she sucked n sucked n sucked until 830pm...
Any idea what I can do? I've tried tommee tippee, which is very close to the shape of a real nipple, tried nuk, the sillicone ones, latex ones, ALL she dont want
i have heard of tonnes of babies, whom refuse to drink from bottle at the caregiver, whole day only drink less than 50ml.. thn when mummy comes home, they start breastfeeding buffet via latch on .. just wakes up more often for night feeds nia..
dont pek chek.. maybe you try to spoonfeed him some ebm 1st? thn you try to let him latch.. if he struggles too much, just lets him go.. try again 1 hour later .. remember to pump out after he refuse to latch.. if not later affect our supply..
confirm he is not given any teats or pacifier anymore right? if he is sucking his thumb, just remove his thumb away from his mouth..
