Hi all mums,
I am new to this forum. I have questions to ask and need you share your experience and advises me accordingly.
My son is 3 mths old today. He is 6.5kg and 59cm length. I started Breastfeeding fully after 4th day of chinese new year. The rests are half formula and breastmilk. I suspect i have low milk supply, therefore, I took domperiodon and fenugrek to increase it. I let my son suck and the improvement is that he only suck 10min n stop. I think he got enough and he fall asleep. Sometime sucking till 30min to 45min. Is this normal? I was told to let baby such each breast 45min to let the milk comes in. So, a slight improvement here, we just let baby suck till he stops, Am I right? But....
Today, my son got the 1st PPD injection and has a fever, he suck my breast for almost 2 hours and yet still want to continue sucking..and throw out milk as well....he shows he needs milk ....he shows he want to suck...I am worry, will he over eat? ? ?
My son is light sleeper at time. At night between 8pm onwards, he will show the difficulty in sleeping. Will any mum having the same problem and how you solve it out?
I was told to pump every 3 hourly so as to increase milk supply. My both breasts don't feel full or half full. When pump, its only 2 OZ, is this normal??? to you. I do it after feeding my son at 9.30pm to 1130pm. I pump at 1230am.
If i will to pump after 6 hours, i may get about 6oz. Is this normal to everyone? ( I took fenugrek).
Do anyone experience after taking fenugrek and your milk supply increase and you stop taking it, your milk still in good supply??? Can I stop taking fenugrek to increase my milk supply?
Hopefully, With the hardwork I have for both at work and baby. I can breastfeed till he is 1 year 1st follow by ......2yrs??Let try...
