I agree with bbphir3. That's what I did for my boy. I would wake him up by either tickling him or I would change his diaper or I would burp him in different positions.
Newborns are sleepy. It's normal. By encouraging full feeds at each feed also cultivates a healthy habit instead of snacking which is bad and unpredictable. When babies have full feeds, they will sleep better and be able to feed better at the next feed.
The only way to ensure no engorgment is to feed or pump. The only way to ensure good supply is to keep the demand there. And the only way to ensure good routine is to be consistent.
When I go out, I will breastfeed him in public either using a poncho in a cool place or car or find a nursing room.
When my boy is full, he will refuse to drink.
yup.. me too!! i just go everywhere with my boy nowadays.. unless i can be sure my trip out is within his 3hours interval, then i wun bring him.. even when hubby wants to go out for a movie, i told him, NO!! unless i can bring my boy there.. lol!!
i invested on a ring sling instead.. cuz the "tail" is long enough to cover us when i'm feeding him.. so i can feed him at practically anywhere.. i even bf him at pepper lunch while having my meal halfway.. LOL!!!
be warn of the curious/ KPO/ irritating stares though.. hahahahahaha...
i even realise ppl will c c look look when my boy is sleeping in the sling.. zzzzz.. as if they never c before like that.. bahahaha....
Yeah i will feed her & then pump out the extras but she always stop then continue stop then continue & i realised everytime i latch/express out the other breast will start leaking badly , so i always get myself into big mess Thsi really turn my mood down to latch her on so most of the time after latching i express & let her drink them .. anyway she drank 75 ml , 30 mins later another 50ml should be fine right ? it seems alot to me .. but after she is full she is in her deep sleep already
I never think of breastfeeding her outside because she stop , start .. i am afraid i cannot cope if i breastfeed her outside .. how long did you mummies intended to breastfeed till ? Because i can't really bring her out all the time i not sure how i can manage the milk supply ..
When my son stop, I will ask him to continue unti lhe is full. I won't let him start stop start stop like that because it seems like snacking to me which is a bad habit.
Since now you know how much she is drinking, you can encourage her to try to finish that amt at one go rather than stopping and drinking again.
I breastfed till my son was 7 mths. I returned to work after 15 weeks maternity leave.
I also leaked from one breast when I was feeding him from another. I just bring a lot of breast pads out so that I can change the pads.
For 6 mths of my son's life, I hardly went out. Only to nearby places for not more than 3 hours.
initially i'm planning to bf till the day he starts growing those sharp sharp white white things~~ but i found out about the wonderful nipple shield by avents.. i'm definitely getting those when those sharp sharp white white things pop out!! and bf as long as he's willing.. another reason for me to bf is cuz i wanna make my mother in law shut up about not having enough breast milk etc etc.. she's very very annoying.. n she manage to talk me out from bf-ing my elder one.. so i'm lyk erm.. getting back at her??
