previously i was using NUK then now change to Tommy. Ya my son will also struggle when direct latch on but if on bottle, he will not.
after i mixed with formula, i start to give him water but i count to 10 mouth only then stop cuz i use breastmilk as water on the formula.
my son also poo less le, sometimes only once a day and sometimes 2 day once. think this is ok cuz they are growing le so their poo is getting lesser. if u see yr gal continue to put on weight then don have to worry. i realised my son get fatter if i feed him full breastmilk. haha...

I mix in the day feed, night feed is by my hubby so easier for him to feed full formula. I pour 120ml of breastmilk and 3 scoops of formula. If full formula will be 120ml of water, 4 scoops of formula. Now I gave full breastmilk in the day feed to cuz he can also last for around 2-3hrs le and to save on powder $$, hee... So I only gave 140ml of breastmilk. On my above mixture, the water level after powder is 140ml.

I'm giving him Fisco & Enfalac. I will alternate each powder. Now give Fisco then later will give Enfalac. I will be trying Similac after I finish Enfalac but will continue on Fisco. So far he ok with both Fisco & Enfalac.

I bought Tommy warmer as I have Tommy bottle, other warmers are too small to fit Tommy bottle and I can warm the milk bag in the warmer directly too.

When u are feeding breastmilk, u gave express wan? Not latch on ya? I tried to feed direct to him in the past few days as my nipple cracked, when I express, it cracked more but when I latch on, it actually healed! But ytd realized my son was playing with my nipple instead of sucking... And when I thought he is actually not hungry, he cried for milk... But on the next feed, he did suckle fm me... Think he thought I'm playing with him...

Hi alisa, ,
I given my girl frozen breastmilk, but sometime give fresh one. My refrigerator about full already. But my girl intake is not much. she now still drink 90 ml to 125 ml for every three hours. I unable increase as she cannot finish 125ml. somemore I only give her day feed. night feed I give formula. I actually want give breastmilk on night feed but I don't how to for the breastmilk. any mummies can share the experience?

I don't mix the breastmilk and formula powder, because my girl has not pass motion for 4 days. I worry so much. I feel super stress and cried. what can I do for my girl. I did put ru yi you and massage her tummy. I felt I really lousy mummy. I got no experience to help my girl.
now I know really not easy be a mother.

mummies, who going to take care your baby when you give back to worker? I am hiring a maid to take care my girl.

Hi! Dun get too stressed up! U r doing fine!

My friend is giving EBM almost totally. At night when giving EBM, she will get her hubby to wake up to warm the milk and then feed baby. It takes quite some time to warm the milk so her poor hubby dun really get enough sleep haha. She will hold and nurse baby mean while. Then when the milk is warmed, hubby will feed baby. She feels that by latching on, she doesn't have enough milk, so she chose to feed EBM...

I think u shouldn't mix breast milk and formula in one bottle to feed coz I read somewhere that its really not good. If I find out the article, I'll share with you all.

If you are feeding baby full breast milk, its common for total breast fed babies to not pass motion for days. Babies older than 1 mth old won't pass motion as much as younger babies too. If you r worried, u can go to a PD for check up. If baby shows no sign of constipation and is gaining weight, then she should be fine.

I'm going to do part time work instead of full time so I'll prob enlist my parents or parent in law's help to take care of my baby for a few hours in the day.

All the best to you, mummy!

Try massaging the lump as you pump. Could be blocked duct. Impt to rub it so that it unblocks coz otherwise it may lead to mastitis which is infection and will cause fever.

yes, it true. I always lazy to massage, just simple massage for few second. I always felt my breast pain and block. then have to do hot shower to give full massage to my breast.
The mastitis is very scarely. I did one time during confinement. Very suffering.

Hi Lyra,
Thanks you so much for the encouragement.

I will try to using method as you recommend. I think is my girl like pacifier then can use to cool her down when waiting milk warming. But she dont like pacifier.

Will you feel painful if baby wase the EBM / cannot finish the EBM??

Hi Alisa,
Massage during when you having hot shower. It works to me. Hope work to you also.

My freezer is almost full also.
same as you, i found my breastmilk getting lesser. Unless i hardworking to pumping more time per day.
I seldom latch on, because i dont know how much she drink. She easy get hungry.
I thinking ask my maid give EBM at night feed. Do you think is good?? i afraid later she give too cold to my baby. and also afraid baby crying when waiting the EBM to warm up.

Alisa, will you painful if waste your EBM??
Some people breastmilk is free, dont need feel painful when waste. But maybe i have limited breastmilk, so sometime feel very waste. That day, i pumping whole bottle (about 5oz), i careless and wasting all whole bottle. Feel so waste and painful..

Alisa, do you give your son gripe water?? I heard people said is helping to poo poo also.
When my girl not poo poo. I always massage his tummy and belly. And also will give a little warm water morning when she waken up. I dont know which method is work for my girl, but she pooed this morning.
Hope the method work to your son also. I can understand your worry.

You have to massage the lumps away before or during pumping and pump all out. Best is to latch on. Had lesser lumps when I latched on more frequently

Yah, I felt heartache at first if my mum throws away EBM when my baby can't finish it. But I got used to it. No use feeling upset coz the EBM really can't keep. But if its my own carelessness that wasted the milk, then I'll feel super heartache!

my son managed to poo le! alot sia! i haven given warm water yet! tho he stained his shirt again but i don mind. hahah!!!
Haha. We parents are so happy to see poo poo! Yup, if baby haven't pooed for a long time, when he finally poo, it'll be explosive! My baby hasn't pooed for whole day and at night, everything came suddenly and very loudly!
