Thanks for the welcome ladies. I am up expressing milk for my boy while he sleeps. Chikoo is going to be 4 months tomorrow. Poppit, glad your lil one was so well behaved during your holiday. TBH, i could do with a holiday, now. Happy 7 months to B, Scottie. They do grow up really quick. I keep remembering my initial days of being mummy. it was tough but I really enjoyed it. Sooz, i had a lazy day today too. i had heard of it, but never thought it would happen to me. But I crave adult company. DH...

Will I be able to breastfeed again?

Chikoo had 11 oz of topup yesterday. he ended up having bad reflux last night. i amnot getting much sleep that could be the reason for low supply too. i think i will aim for combination feed for now rather than exclusive bf as the way i am going is not sustainable. i was hoping that i could replace the top ups with exprssed milk but due to low suplly not been able to dothat. pAMMY havent pmed you as yet coz not sure what way i will be going.

Will I be able to breastfeed again?

yes pam i do think my supply is low. and my lo is feeding ineffectively so it will go down further. for some reason he wouldnot feed from my right side which is my good side. i did try your trick and expressed a bit before offering him and it seemed to work for a while but soon he was upset again. Quoted from "pamelag088" Have you spoke to your HV? Mine wasnt very helpful just said I was doing a good job but I needed advice as I knew it was going wrong. Hope you get him settled soon mine isnt ve...

Will I be able to breastfeed again?

sorry could not reply earlier as had visitors today. you are being really helpful and really appreciate it. i think my letdown gets slower as the day progresses. it is alright early morning and night time. problem is don't get time to express during daytime. Chikoo too gets annoyed when i take the botle away to burp him. but will try giving him just an oz and then putting him to breast. I will have a look at the link. gtg he is a bit unsettled this evening. will come baCK on later.

Will I be able to breastfeed again?

Hey Pammy, first of all a huge hug to you. yes he was refusing my breast yesterday. he would just spit it out. latching has always been a problem but we have made great improvement in that respect. I use tommee tippee's closer to nature bottles. they are low flow arent they? Thanks Pammy, i do make it want to work but yesterday when he wasnt drinking and crying i felt bad for forcing him to take breast. i think the reason was he has come to prefer the fast flow from the bottles. Also he will wai...

Will I be able to breastfeed again?

Thanks Pam. You have been such ahelp. Had a real bad day today as Chikoo did not breastfeed at all. I have decided to bottlefeed now. I will offer him breasts and expressed milk but will not be persistent as I want him to gain weight and be content. Like you said unfortunately we don't get a second chance at it becauuse now i realise what i did wrong.

Will I be able to breastfeed again?

thks pam, i think a hot shower and bit of massage sorted the blocked duct. still got the milk blisters. I had not thought about he going without his night feeds. At present he feeds 2-4 times at night. but again it is variable. last night i had to give him bottle because he would not take the breast. poor chap vomited it all out. but it breaks my heart when my milk is not suffiecient. i know you have been through this too. well done for breastfeeding against all odds. i am aiming to breastfeed h...

1 month on

hi all, just an update. it is month since chikoo's birth. I am still on combination feeding routine. My nipples recovered from the initial damage and i started offering him breast before each feed. He takes 9 ounces worth of top feed every day (last 2 days 11 oz); 3 oz at 11; 3 at about 4 and 3 at 7.00pm. and I think he is so used to that he will cry if not given top up at those times especially the evening feed. yesterday i expressed to see if there was milk in my breast when he was crying for ...

I dont think I can do this anymore

hi Pammy, i have been following this thread. really admire your determination. as you know i am struggling with breastfeeding too. reading this thread has kept me going uptil now. i am afraid to leave my lo with my Mum too for similar reason. As slightest sound from M and he will get a bottle in his mouth. Quoted from "Ginger74" My gyn, he told me first when I was telling him that I am trying to BF DD with nipple shields and for hours, he told me: and have you thougth about your DD? it's hard fo...

Will I be able to breastfeed again?

Thank you ladies for the encouragement. Quoted from "pamelag088" How much is he taking? hi Pam, He takes about 2-3 oz of formula. I have been trying to cut it down to 2 oz or 1 oz but not always succsessfuly. Quoted . How long after a b/f are you topping him up? Maybe you could try just putting him back to the breast instead. How much formula are you topping him up with? Falling asleep at the beast is very common- it's a lovely comfy place to be!! Try getting him to grip your finger while he fee...

Will I be able to breastfeed again?

Thank you ladies. I am making slow progress. I have been putting him to breastfeed last couple of days. Sometimes he latches on well and other times he just wont open his mouth wide or cry. he does tend to sleep on my breast making me wonder if he is getting any. I am defiently producing milk as my breasts feel heavy every couple of hours. S Midwife visited today and she seemed to think he was latched on alright. Today I have put him to breastfeed every time he is hungry but i have had to top hi...

Will I be able to breastfeed again?

Thank you all your advise. It is good to know I am not alone in all this. Bells I will try the scissors technique. I have been holding my breast with the same side hand in sort of C shape. My nipples are on the way to recovery now, so hoping for atleast 2 or 3 good sessions today. Pam thanks I will try and put him on breast when he is not so frantic and hungry. Jen well done for getting back to exclusive breastfeeding. I will be seeing midwife again this Wednesday and ask her to show me the posi...

Will I be able to breastfeed again?

Thanks Michelle for the quick reply. My lil one does not have a tongue tie. i have not tried nipple shields as yet. Have been giving them a thought but have read that they affect breast milk production. Have you used them? I am willing to give them a go if they would help. Thanks once again.
