My baby gal Bowie 8 month, way before she was born I want determine to breastfeed her as this is the best gift I can provide her with. As I am the first one in my family to give birth and breastfeed there no one I can turn to when I have difficulty in breastfeeding, forum way the only place I can find all the information.
I still remember how my mum way nagging at me when I tell her I going to breast feed my baby, she give me all sort of reason why no to breast feed and the most funny one is " all of you also not BF one also grow up well on formula" she will never understand the feeling of BF your baby and knowing this is the best gift to provide your baby.
I have success in Bfing my gal for8 month despite all the tireness of not enough sleep.
Think my journey will be ending soon as my supply is super low this few day, hope it will come back and I can continue to bf my baby, I really do not wish to give her formula
You can do it! Has your menses resume? Mine came back in full swing in the 9th month. I just continued despite a much slower letdown and dear son was rather impatient to continue suckling.
He's coming to one year soon, and I'm looking forward to celebrate my one year of bf journey
My menstrual return the 2nd month after I give birth, this few day when I express milk I cannot Feel the letdown at all when my gal latch at night I think she cannot suck any milk out and she keep crying.
Cooked fish soup and drink milk tea yesterday hope that will increase my milk supply.
Really do not wish to end my bf journey so soon.
Yesterday try one time formula for my gal she dont like it, really dont know what to do
I experienced the samething when my menses returned. No matter what i eat- fish soup, milk and milo - my supply was still low. This is because we produce less milk due to the changes in homone level from menses. Instead, I gave formula to my son and he takes well to formula. Maybe you should change to another brand of formula.
I not having my menstrual now, itjust sudden low supply which I do not know why
Today just find out I am in the early stage of pregnant, want to check with the mummies here....
Is it still safe for me to continue breastfeed?
Is there any way for me to increase my milk supply? Still safe to drink milk tea and sacre tea?
I check with the gynea it ok for me to breast feed. I will just drink soup to increase my supply
Congratulations on your pregnancy and breastfeeding to 8 months so far! Well done!

All the best on your breastfeeding and pregnancy journey!
Thank you the articlar is useful, it give me the confident that I am still able to breastfeed when I am pregnant
I have to stop breast feeding as told be the gynea as I am having some spotting, I have to stop breast feeding if not I will cause harm to my unborn baby.
This two night my baby have been crying alot at night cause she cannot latch on, it really hurt me to see her cry till so bad
Ohh no So sad to hear that!
Is there a breastfeeding counsellor you can speak to? They're very good in helping breastfeeding mothers through emotional times... I've called the one in my country a couple of times and they are wonderful.
Hope it works out well for you.
