    Hi all, its been awhile since i log in to forum.
    I am a first-time mummy and am wondering how you guys knew how much breastmilk to pump or feed baby with each time? Got so much of things to enquire and learn.
     
  41. fion

    fion Active Member

    michelle, ermm.. all depends on the bb intake.. for pumping, of coz the more u can get the better... just keep it for future use.. how old your nb?

    ohhh.. initially really need to latch n pump latch n pump.. empty ur breasts to send signal to your body u need more milk! Say easier than done.. I been thru twice.. first gave up after 2wks.. cant keep up to my boy demand.. second doing better.. close to 3mths.. but only partial feed.. very tiring!

    Are u staying in fernvale?
     
  44. spongebb

    spongebb Member

    Hi Michelle!

    Personally experience: I latch on demand for the first 2 mths. (almost latching on 24/7 +_+) Afterwhich i tried pumping out everytime bb finish a feed so that i can build up my breastmilk after i go back to work. 1-2 weeks before going back to work, i started to pump at the timing that i know i will be pumping at work so that my body will be used to it. (eg: 10am and 4pm). I remember few days, i can't wait to go back to my bb so that he can relieve my engorgored breasts. heehee....

    bb is on full bm for almost a year and is still latching him now [​IMG]

    qiqi, very good! I cant leh.. my supply just not enuff... even with my mum so supportive over bf.. she even asked me to stop after seeing both of us struggling.. Latch, Pump, FM.. and she even asked me to stop pumping cos no milk! even I am using medela electric pump.. and worst of all.. I drank green papaya fish soup 4 times a day for the whole mth! still.... sigh...
     
  46. spongebb

    spongebb Member

    i didn't succeed for #1, he refused/ dunno how to latch. [​IMG]

    #2, i decided to invest in medela freestyle! *thumbs up* and luckily #2 is a natural at latching! haha... but my problem now is dunno how to wean him off. *facepalm*

    qiqi, i even suspect the electric pump not working well.. but my sis delivered 3 wks b4 me test on it for me.. its ok! milk flows well.. she is fully bf for a yr+.. so I really has no milk...... if I have #3 i will try again!
     
  48. spongebb

    spongebb Member

    hmm... babycupid, maybe u try fully lactch on for the first month for #3. At least wait for the milk to stablise.

    i rem i tried to pump during when bb was 1-2 weeks, also no milk flow out. i was so confused cos all the while bb is latching on well, for a while i thought die liao, did bb drank enough for these 2 weeks mah.... then i heck care and focus on just latching. started to pump only before returning to work. so far so good.

    qiqi,

    my #2 ok with latching on but every hr for abt 5-6 times.. then she got upset and just need FM to cool her down.. too hungry i guessed.. so while she FM I tried to pump lor.. the most i get 30ml-60ml.. until 2mths+ still ard there.. both sides~ very pathetic.. sigh...
