Is there a difference on using frozen expressed breast milk from baby month 1 or 2 vs frozen breast milk from the last 2 weeks (she’s 3.5 months now) nutrition wise?
my LO in 23 months. He was unable to latch so I pumped for 6 months 4-5 times a day. Prior to pumping I used to enjoy nipple stimulation during foreplay/sex. Now it feels like nails on a chalkboard. Did the pumping damage my nerves? Anyone with similar experience.
I’m a new mommy with 3week old son. I breastfeed him but I don’t know is he full or not. He takes hour to bf. He drinks expressed milk mostly from evening to morning from bottle(I do pump every 2hrs in these hrs n this pump is making my nipple soooo sore 😞). I think he just don’t want to bf, he gets full through bottle only. When i see him drinking from bottle I feel so bad like I couldn’t feed him. How should I console myself!
I feel confused about how much expressed Breast milk to leave my baby when she is bottle fed- she is 3 months old. I go back to work soon and she is exclusively breast fed so I have no clue how much milk she takes in. She eats 8-10x in a 24 hour period . How much does she need in each bottle?
I am returning to work from maternity leave in 3 weeks and my mom will be watching my daughter. Right now I exclusively breastfeed and my husband gives her one bottle at night which she takes reluctently. I want to get her used to taking a bottle easier and also not be so dependent on comfort feeding on me since I will not be around while at work. I need my mom to be able to soothe her too and right now its only me that can. I am thinking of pumping and giving a bottle or two during the day in addition to the night bottle in the next few weeks leading up to my return to work to get her used to it. Does that seem like a good idea? Will it ruin my supply? Any other tips to make the transition to work easier? Im getting so nervous...
Before having a baby I never understood why mothers breastfed. I was formula fed & turned out just fine, right? After doing some research I decided to try breastfeeding without knowing how much work was involved. This week my son had croup. I'd heard that breastmilk changed when your baby was sick. I am so fascinated after comparing milk pumped when he was sick this week (11/1) to tonight's pump (11/4). 11/1 is clearly more thick and more yellow in color. After seeing this I feel more than ever that all this hard work is best for my boy! How cool is this???
Going back to work this week! I am EBF but will have to bottle her (not formula) while I'm gone. My baby girl is 4.5 months old. How much milk did your babies take at that age? She feeds every 2 hours usually. (8-10x a day).! I need to know so I can prep her bottles for my sitter
Hi, first time here. I have a 3 and a half months old son and he got his 3m checkup the other day and was told I need to pump more and feed him more often since his weight gain was lower end of growth chart. Though he doubled his weight from the birth weight, I decided to feed him more often like 3-4hrs instead of 4-5hrs. Then suddenly he stopped drinking as much and started to wake up more often at night. So I started giving him my breastmilk in a bottle before going to bed after he'd drink breastmilk only from one side. Now he sleeps better and wakes up once a night and would drink both sides of breastmilk again. He woke up this morning and I knew he'd be hungry again but he only drunk one side..ugh I just don't know whether if it's my milk supply or he's really n... More
Ok I need breastfeeding help I'm 7 months pregnant and my one year old twin daughters are still nursing. It's hard I didn't plan this pregnancy and wanted to breastfeed till my girls were two, because I just think it's best. but they are 12 months old by the time I have the baby they still won't be two and I have a hard enough time nursing the two of them as it is I'm thinking maybe start pumping. I may just wean them off or pump and give them my milk that way and maybe nurse them at night. I'm not sure any suggestions.
Do you pump and clean all your parts and bottles at work? I'm looking for some tips. We have a common kitchen which is a little bit of a walk from the new mother's room. How do I avoid embarrassment for me and my largely young work friends? I know I know its my baby's lunch, but it's also my bodily fluid.
