juz wondering, for those who BF their kids till 1yr etc., as their consumption increase, will our supply increase too?
if not have to exhaust both breasts at a single feed? enough to go around meh?

Gals, gymboree has 30% off everything. Anyone wants anything? I getting their swimsuit for my niece.

Anybody wants almost 100+ balls? Those used for filling up mini vinyl playpools? Need to let go. Collect from my place at AMK.

hi ladies,

my son is back to rejecting bottle again...haiz...everyday now try giving to him but somehow i always caught him at the wrong time then i end up having to throw away the milk...and after that i'll latch him on...i've tried asking my hb to feed him but no use, he still cries...

those who bottle feed, do you normally wait till your baby ask for feed or give them even if they don't ask anyway at the regular interval ?

i think i may be a bit gan cheong that i prepare the bottle too early or too late...sigh...i have 2 months left before going back to work so hope he can accept the bottle in time...

tute, wat I did previously is...latch him and when he stopped to breathe or reopen to grab, stuff the teat into his mouth...that helps him wean off me. but alas...the special kind of feeling during latching is also missed.


p1nk1e, it's a matter of demand and supply too. when they older, they start on solids too.

sgwave, i've having the same issue with my boy for the past 1.5wk.. he used to be drinking abt 125ml every 3 to 3.5hr.. but these past 10 days, he tends to throw up milk so we cut back his intake to only 110ml per 3hr.. and sometimes he cant even finish..but he seems alright.. so we havent brought him to the pd..

re medela swing tubing
i also never sterilise.. dont think we need to right? according to the instruction booklet just hang to let it dry.. if you want it to dry faster.. then leave the pump on to run with tubing on without bottle..

re scheduled feeding.. i think it depends on your preference.. we try and give him every 3 hours to try and establish a more predictable feeding pattern..

re: bb's appetite

Went KKH today, heng ah, baby's hearing normal even though she had a bout of ear infection.
She screamed and cried very loudy during the hearint test though, only managed to test for right ear but luckily that was the infected ear in the first place. :p

bkkgal, you mentioned that you watched your baby on the monitor. What bb video monitor did you buy? Price? Is it good? Thinking of getting one too cos baby getting too big for the Arm's reach mini co sleeper so may need to move her out of my bedroom to the big cot in baby's room.

By the way, on weekdays I pass by your mum's place after work at 6-6:15pm, she would have already left for your place right? Working this sat morning, hope can pick up the breast pad from her after I knock off at 12:30pm.

My gal also drinking less and less milk, heat up EBM, end up she either drink a bit then don't want like just now. (110ml left with 70ml) or fuss and don't want to drink although it's her usual 3-3.5hr feeding interval. Don't know why. :p

i've also been trying hard to feed my boy via bottle. recently getting better. but then, i think he only 'allow' me to feed via bottle. when my mum/hubby try, he will usually refuse and cry loud loud (tho he will also fuss when i feed, but after a few tries, he will 'guai guai' take). if cont like dat, dunno wat will happen when i go back to work. now must make sure my mum try feeding him at least once everyday.

forgot to add. based on my experience, if i bottle feed when bb is already crying loudly for milk, usu won't succeed. if i do so when i think bb is hungry (eg. alr 3 hr since last feed), then will turn out fine most of the time.

got a silly personal qn. please dun laugh hor.

our breasts now will leak milk every now and then right? so how to BD ah? isn't it very gross if it drips drips drips? anyway to prevent?
 

sgwave

Member
Kitsune,
If your gal drink very much less than the usual feeding interval, does she want more in the next feeding or ask for milk earlier?

bx,
your gal is so guai, never reject teat when u feed her.

I tried feeding my gal based on 3hr interval, but end up having to pour away 90% of the milk. So nowadays, I only give after making sure that she is hungry.

Eileen,
I also cut back on her feeding to abt 100ml just now....still cannot finish

I bought the Dancing Dsisy monitor from Kiddy Palace $299. It's got infra-red so can see in the dark too.

Yeah, my mom still at my place abt 6 pm on weekdays. Sat/Sun is her "off days"...keke so she at home, you can go collect from her then


How's raeanne tonight? Good girl or not? Mine nowadays oso drink 70 ml out of 110 ml and dun wan already.

Just latched her. She drink happy happy and then bbbbrrrappppp! Big POO!! Almost leak, change her and then happy like bird again. Now hb trying to put her back to sleep while I pump.

sgwave,
she will fuss and cry during the feed. i will keep telling her "ok ok", wait for awhile let her rest then she stop crying. she drink her few sips then continue crying. then i repeat. when left abt half bottle of milk, she will get used to drinking and stop fussing liao. must be patient. dun think that once they start fussing, they are rejecting the bottle. try to soothe them with words. pat pat them.
