Haha! The way you feeding baby same as me...I slowly slowly reduce the fm...I not sure exclusive pumping is work for every mummy o not..i was exclusively pumping as I prefer pump out to feed my baby...the quantity was increased indeed...I can't remember how it's to increase actually as I kept pumping, pumping n pumping...haha!
Actually, I still learning to increase the quantity...so let's Jia you o...
Nice to meet you!
yea my output will maintain then increase then maintain. now it maintain at 70-80 instead of 50 at the start of the wk. lookibg forward to increasing again. as i just took extra domperidone.
sonetimes emotional stress and tiredness will cause supply to drop. yes i make a point to wake up at night to pump too every 4hrly. luck for me my mun takes over the care so i just need to rest and pump. i dont need to fuss over baby's feeding burping and changing also i do help out also. so it gives me alot of free time. i can still meet my friend for lunch and go gym. all these so i try to keep myself stress free so it will encourage milk flow.
Yup...I was pumped out every 4hrsly...even midnite though that's tiring n sleepy...but I insist to do it in order to maintain the milk supply (gained via here) haha...I had tried to pump every 3hrsly before but I felt dizzy after that...gt one time almost fainted...dont know y?do mummies hav tis kind of experience?
think bcoz its too tiring. i used to do 3hrly too. but too tiring and dragged to 4hrly...Originally Posted by EFW:678646
I wanna thanks all the mummies out thr for giving me valuable tips on BF!!! I finally got good news!!! I managed to total bf my baby now!!!! I started on pumping and decided to give direct latch a go and it indeed work miracle !!! I have total bf for my first day yest after struggling for 2months!! Though she latch till my nipple bleed and it's so sore, but all these is worth it!!! now pumping is such an easy chore. I dont need to keep carrying my pump around. I just need my baby!!! And I just need to pump about 15 mins to get 100 mls. Unlike last time, I need 1hr!!! So direct latching did really help alot alot!! Indeed thr's no easy way out. just have to latch and latch. Now I just have to have her latch properly to solve my sore nipple issue and I can foresee I happy bf-ing bonding time with my baby!! I am just sooo happy!!!
