Did you feed her with formula too?
Yes. Not enough breast milk.
Wonder is it because baby lazy to suck so waiting for bottle feed?
Have been using same position throughout the past few times. Still can latch.
Out of sudden, refuse to latch from last friday. dont't know why. See me then start to cry so loud when i put near the breast..
perhaps you can try to cut down on your bottle feeding slowly and let her latch more often?
or could baby be reacting to some new scent you're wearing?
I didn't wear scent at home. Guess too hungry till cannot latch as have to wait for breast milk flow out.
you could help baby by pressing on your breasts to make the milk flow faster. Can also have a warm drink or warm bath first to help with the letdown too.
Today latch on 5min then stop. Refuse to latch another breast.
One breast more smelly than the other?
Try to latch when your baby sleepy. they blur blur will latch. then try daytime..
but you try bottle . so they know the short cut to drink milk. cos bottle easier, latching needs effort one..
baby was still okay with the pong altho i myself could have fainted if i were to smell my armpits day in day out the way baby does.
bbs have preferences, maybe it's because the way we hold them. My baby used to latch on better for the right breast, now she latches on better for the left breast. Somehow, the right breast still seems to satisfy her better.
girls, i recently started my girl with solid and realise she dosent empty the breast during her feeds.. i guess cos she is not that hungry to take in so much milk as she takes solid as well.. then at night im trying not to give her milk so that she can sleep through. i realise she is not hungry when she wakes cos i tried not giving for 2 nights and she dosent appear hungry... so at night i get engorgement... i have a feeling that my milk supply will decrease alot if i continue this way (give solid and dont give her milk at night). am i right? so far my menses have not come but if i continue this way, my menses should come soon as well right? im rather confuse on what i should do now.. she should be taking solid since she is already 7mths and i hope to get her to sleep through the night as well but at the same time i worry that my menses will come soon and also worry bout my milk supply.. what should i do? pump? pumping seems to take ages for me and i dont get letdown with pumping.. also, its rather ridiculous to get up at night to pump.. if so, i better let her drink at night isnt it? since i need to wake up anyway?
As for decrease in milk supply, I still am not able to quite gauge yet but I guess it would eventually decrease coz just to side track a bit, what is happening to me now.....is that :-
I would usually breastfeed my gal at night before she sleeps and in the morning when she wakes up before she goes to nanny. But these couple of days she doesn't seem to want my breast anymore ( sob sob...... so now I end up bottle feeding her. I would still need express my milk in the night (around 10.30-11pm) before i sleep whether or not I breastfeed her. During the day, i express once at work. I have given the nanny Frisocreme rice cereal to try out so perhaps that could have an effect on baby's feeding pattern? or is she just bored with my breastmilk? or is it coz she is teething? I still pass the EBM to nanny for a couple of feeds during the day. baby is going on 6 months next week.
snowbear, i feed her before bedtime actually. i usually cluster feed her in the evening. when she wake up from her last nap usually around 6-7pm once, then 8.30pm once and before her bed another time around 9-9.30pm. then she will sleep and wake up at anytime between 12.30-2am and around 6am. 2 night wakings... i figure out that she is not hungry during the midnight wake so i stop giving her milk. i jsut carry her and swing a bit and she will be off to bed and then wake up at 6am then i will give her milk. i dont know why she wake up at midnight though she is not hungry... im hoping she can sleep through without waking at midnight so i stopped giving her and since she isnt hungry... should i continue to give her though she is not hungry?
shespice, my girl sometimes also figid during midnight n falls right back to bed but then sometimes she simply cry... i will wait for a few mins n see if she will falls back asleep but she dosent so i usually carry her up n feed her. but these 2 nights i just carry her n dont feed her but she goes back to bed as well n can sleep till morning at 6am... so i figured out she isnt hungry when she wakes up around 2am as well...

yes she cries. most of the time she cries when she wakes up in the middle of the night. sometimes cry a while eg 1-2mins she will fall back asleep so i usually see how. if she cry more than that i will pick her up n feed her then she will go back to sleep. but these 2 nights she cry, i pick her up n simply carry her while standing n she goes back to sleep as well n only wakes at 6am.. so i figure out she isnt hungry at 2am...thats y i stopped feeding her at 2am hoping that she wont wake up in future knowing there is no milk for her?
actually these few days i keep thinking if i should do this cos like many ppl says, baby sleep through the night when they are ready. its another developement milestone so i thought maybe i should let nature takes it course... but then since i know she isnt hungry, i jsut feel maybe i should not feed her so she can sleep through. of cos the morning feed i will feed her since its been so many hours since her last feed before bed. but then... not too sure if im going against nature this way..lol
ya actually i think fidget n then cooing in the cot is ok.. dont need to feed them.. but then cos she cry ..though im sure she is not hungry, i dont know y she wakes up...
Pump only once I wake up. Milk supply same as 1st month when I just gave birth.
Now menses comes back still continue to pump milk out. Menses not heavy. Only a little, 2nd seems to stop flowing. Very weird.
