Hi everyone,I was part of Sep due date, but almighty blessed us with sweet little angel on 28 Aug.Its such a wonderful feeling. Will tell u more when i reach home.
final awaited sleepless nights have arrived!!!
nice name dear!!!!
Happy to announce the arrival of our prince on the 25 th August . Still trying to get to know him and his needs will update the birth story and his daily routine soon. It was a normal delivery.
hi YaminiC, bf was a headache for me too, it startet in hospital that i got confused by all these different opinions and suggestions and afraid that i dont have enough milk. I consultet last week a la leche league counsellor lady and visited first group meeting of breast feeding moms,that helped me a lot! The most important thing they told was to trust in yourself and be confident and optimistic.Your body provides everything your baby needs, beliefe in yourself and your body, dont lose trust in your body, the crazy it sounds but it makes a huge difference.
I talked yesterday to a very experienced doctor whom told she is mother of two girls as well. She informed me that the mind of a mother while breastfeeding is so important that if a mother consulted her for medicines to stop lactating she knew and even told they wont need to take as the thought of stopping to lactate will already itself do the job..it usually turned out to be right. )I mean to say dont think like i dont have enoughmilk, try to think and imagine lots of milk in your breasts.
i would sugest:
check frequently the weight gain of baby, if its good then dont worry about feeding
check on amount of nappies (4 to 6 is great)
Is your doc offering laser for nipples? check on practices who offer ( is there white spots on or cracks?)
let your nipples air dry as often as possible, you can use lanolin cream and let always some drops on milk dry on them ( i ALWAYS do that religiously and never had problems so far)
contact la leche league lady its incouraging a lot
try to stop worrying and think positive
actually i got the information that laleche league is advising not to use formula as every mother if not real medical reason is able to provide ev erything a mother needs, so pumping to get your nipples used to the sucking and keep on letting latche on is great as the more stimulation the more milk will come
did you think about letting your LO first drink some pumped milk and then give breast as the worst hunger will already be gone so the sucking might be bit less??? Just a thought
If its hurting too much use the shields but try in between without too maybe similar strategy then with the pumping?? I stopped using them last week as mine was sucking too much air with them and they really botherd me but if your having pain they are great
not sure if any of these is helping you but really hope as i know by heart how much it worries a mom to be insecure about breastfeeding
@Shama and Nisitha congratz and all the best wishes for you and your LO´s enjoy those great days the fullest
