Hi!  I experienced the same when I stopped breastfeeding for 1 day.  Sobra ang hinina ng milk ko pero tyinaga ko yun for the next 1 week (as in I pump every hour).  In your case na 3 months, di na suggested that you re-lactate kasi iba na quality ng milk mo (imagine storing it for 3 months) and your baby might experience some inconveniences like constipation and the like.

Relactation is still possible even after 3 months.  Most important in re-establishing milk production is the frequent and regular stimulation and emptying of the breasts. This would mean a job for
either your baby when you're with her or your breast pump while at work. Offer your breast at every chance you see --- kahit comfort sucking lang, when she's going to sleep or has just awaken.  Kahit kasi wala siyang naiinom masyado, the sucking will send the signals for your breasts to make
the milk. Pump at least every 2-3 hours, even if you see no milk coming out. Even if your baby is done nursing, pump both breasts for 5-10 minutes to further drain your breasts. Of course your baby will still need supplemental feedings of formula until you have fully established your milk supply again.
But offer the bottle only after nursing and use a slow-flow nipple.  The tendency with fast flow nipples would be the easy preference for it over the breasts with very little milk coming out. Pag na-establish na milk supply mo, switch to exclusive breatfeeding na.

Galactagouges like malunggay capsules (Natalac or Prolacta) 3 caps 3x/day will be very helpful. Fenugreek too.  And follow the usual tips for nursing moms -- water, shell soups, oatmeal with soupy milk.

Is mixing fresh malunggay on my soup better than taking malunggay capsules? Which kind of malunggay can I use, the top ones (yung light green) or the big ones (the dark greens)?
Title: Re: continuity
Post by: keih liwanag on October 27, 2008, 01:30:17 pm
sis ehrika, yes it's possible. my sis in law had milk until her two kids' 2nd year. super nakatipid sya. i remember nung wala ako milk, i ask for hers. hehe mag-ka-age kase 3rd son niya tsaka 1st kid ko. so ayun. hehe hirap lang coz she's from meycauayan, the transfer is difficult, baka masira diba.

mommyjazz, sabi nila it helps daw, malunggay leaves in soups.. pati daw halaan ba yun. dark ones ang ginagamit namin nun. tapos sabay sila dapat ng intake mo ng malunggay capsules. sakin nun nireseta is natalac.
Title: Resuming Breastfeeding/breastmilk
Post by: christina on May 06, 2009, 09:49:07 am
Hi mommies! ask ko lang...is there any way na maibalik ang breastmilk?  You might be familiar with what's going on sa amin ni baby Patrice...and with all the stress eh parang wala ng lumalabas na milk.  She refuses to take the breast na kasi wala na nga syang madede..hay..so sad...eh with her delicate condition, super maganda talaga kung breastfed pa din sya...im taking natalac and eating malunggay pero it seems na talagang ayaw na bumalik yung gatas ko...

un lang po...bow! thanks! =)
Title: Re: Resuming Breastfeeding/breastmilk
Post by: yshaleigh on May 06, 2009, 09:54:53 am
continuous take of liquid like water, milk then yung malunggay.. tpos hayaan mo lang mg latch yung baby mo hanggang sa may lumabas.. o kaya naman try not to think of her condition pa mag breastfeed ka.. kc ako nga as much as possible kahit inis ako,, i made sure na happy thoughts ang naiisip ko while breastfeeding...

i know its hard on ur situation but just be strong sis..

yeah, pwede naman.  pag madalas na feed si baby sa breast mo, dadami ulit ang supply.  stimulation kasi ang key for the breastmilk to start flowing again.  maybe you can try nga feeding her pag sleepy na. source of comfort din kasi sya.  for mommy. hehe.

ako din inverted nipple and mahina ang milk ko pero kahit na na fufustrate ang baby ko mag suck i still let him latch on my nipple para kahit mas madalas syang naka formula atleast i am still giving him breastmilk kahit papaano. Basta may konting milk pa sis pwede pa ma work on yun sabayan mo na din ng malunggay then lots of fluid then i pa suck mo lang parati.
Title: have no enough milk :(
Post by: MomFromBaguio on April 30, 2010, 12:55:27 am
Hi everyone, I'm a mother of two, 3+ years and 8 months old. I was searching for forums for more than a week now,I'm really glad, I saw this site.. It helps me a lot by simply reading posts but I guess wala pang nakapag share ng problem tulad nito:

I was breast feeding my son since birth pero hindi siya mataba, yung weight niya halos nasa base lang ng normal growth chart ng mga babies. Di ba po pag breast feeding, healthy and mataba sana? Worried na po ako. Parang hindi ko yata nasusuplyan ng enough milk baby ko? Though kumakain narin siya ng solid foods.

Another thing, madali po siyang magising, konting ingay lang, ayun, gising na, lalo na kung hindi ko siya karga. May mga times din na umiiyak siya paggising, na gusto pa niyang matulog pero hindi na niya makuha, kahit iBF ko uli. May time din po na magigising siya pag tinanggal ko na yung breast tapos kakalma pag binalik ko.

Balak ko na po siyang ibottle feed kaya lang ayaw naman niya ng bottle feeding. Pero sa tingin ko talagang kelangan na niyang magbottle feed. Gusto ko rin try na iwan si baby sa husband ko with the formula para mapilitan siyang magbottle feed. OK lang po ba yun? help naman po. Thanks!

sis did your pedia prescribe vitamins? baka kelangan niya ng vitamins.

siguro nga kulang yung milk mo sis. kasi friend ko na EBF, medyo big talaga baby niya. me, i'm mixed feeding kasi kulang breast milk ko. buti na lang i didnt have a problem with her using the bottle. since birth naman kasi mixed fed na sya. i breastfeed her at nights, pampatulog niya. alam ko pag kulang ang milk ko pag halos 30 mins na syang dumedede tapos di pa sya nakakatulog. kaya timpla na ako ng formula. pag naubos na niya formula, dun pa sya nakakatulog. pag madami naman milk ko, satisfied na sya sa breastmilk lang.

Hi! Alam mo sis as in same ang problema natin sa mga anak natin... I have 1 year old baby girl and proud to say na breast feeding ang ginagawa ko sa kanya kaso hindi siya tumataba tapos alam mo yung underweight siya for her age... Sinubukan ko i-bottle feed pero talagang sapilitan ang pagpapadede sa kanya sa bote. Alam mo yung kulang na lang e magpakamatay ata siya sa pag-iyak dahil gusto niya dumedede sa akin.

Sa ngayon ang isa pa nga sa problema ko eh.... ayaw niya kumain ng solid food :(, mahina dumede or should I say na ayaw talaga dumede sa bote. Sa totoo lang hindi ko na rin alam ang gagawin ko.

thanks mommy jo :) sabi nga sa mga nababasa ko oatmeal helps daw para dumami yung milk. kaya nung last na naggrocery kami ni hubby super buy ako ng oats. sana nga mapadami niya milk ko.hehe.di kc ko kumakain talaga ng oats eh..pero for saab pikit mata kong kinakain yun ;D
Title: Re: Re-lactating
Post by: steffani on June 08, 2010, 11:34:18 am
for me dumami milk ko dati kasi religiously, every three hours, i use the breast pump talaga, until wala na talaga lumalabas at kupos na ang boobs, hehe... ito lang kasi is a technique para dumami ang milk... kahit si baby ay nagdede naman sayo, pumping after will ensure na ma-drain talaga ang boobs mo, making your body think na malakas ang consumption ni baby, so next time dadamihan niya pa ang production... anyway the milk na you pumped na di ininom ni baby pwede mo naman ilagay sa freezer or throw it away (or give sa dog --- nakakataba sya ng dog, swear)... or give sa other babies whose moms dont have milk (or kung may malapit na orphanage with babies).

sa oatmeal naman, what i did before was i use the milk for lactating mothers para i-mix sa oatmeal tapos di na ako naglalagay ng sugar... i also added fruits and even dried fruits to add sa taste... biruin mo, for 3 months, breakfast ko was laways oatmeal... for my case naman kasi i love oatmeal (plus my mom was always looking over my shoulder... hehe)

here's some good news... if you always drain your boobs which leads to your body always producing more every three hours... papayat ka... i swear by this... i went back to my dalaga weight and figure (except for the tummy part na medyo saggy pa from lack of exercise)... tapos add na dun na i had bigger boobs, hehe...

side effect naman, eventually magmukang deflated balloon ang boobs (lalo na after draining with the pump talaga)... pero i learned na once i got back to my normal hormone level at medyo may laman na ulit ako (dahil di na napupunta kay baby lahat ng fats ko), my boobs were no longer deflated... tapos i would do 30 push-ups three times a week (TTHS), which added lift sa boobs kasi nag tighten ulit ang muscles... so perky na ulit si boobies (di na nga lang sing perky nung wala pang baby...)  ;D

i've read na dapat nga mag-pump every 2-3hrs, lalo kapag nasa office ka, para lang ma-trigger yung glands na nagpo-produce ng milk, to produce more milk... law of demand and supply lang, mas nae-empty ang breast, mas malakas production ng milk... pero hirap ako sa pag-pump, nasasaktan ako.. siguro di lang ako marunong.. kaya mas preferred ko kung si baby nagde-dede sa akin... nung bumalik ako sa work, di ako nagpa-pump sa ofc, pero pag-uwi ko naman sa bahay puno na breast ko, as in masakit na nga, sakto breastfeed ko na si baby.. 10months na ngaun si baby, meron pa rin ako milk.. di nga lang super lakas para mag-exclusive breastfeeding ako... kaya pa yan mommy judith, mind over matter lang.. saka inom ka ng malunggay supplements at sabaw, and eat healthy para nutritious yung milk na mabigay mo kay baby :)

Post by: Shanelle™ on June 12, 2010, 11:25:19 pm
tyagaan lang din sis. Ako din 10 mos na si baby, mixed feeding nga lang. Tips lang ulit:

1. Numero uno tip is direct feeding as often as possible..nothing beats talaga.. find time to do direct feeding.

2. Pumping every 2 to 3 hrs helps a lot.

3. Take galactogues.

4. Take lots of liquid.

Goodluck po sa mga breastfeeding mommies. Wala talagang papantay sa breastmilk kahit Enfa series pa yan heheh.

mommy kaydet normal reaction kay baby un lalo na kung totally mo tinigil breastfeeding for 7mos.. luckily for me, di nagkaroon ng confusion si baby sa bottle and breast ko, 10mos na sya ngaun pero love pa rin niya mag-breastfeed kahit na like din niya bote niya  ;) try mo siguro minsan, habang nagdede sya sa bote, alisin mo saglit tapos offer mo yung breast mo, baka sakali malito sya tpos magustuhan niya eventually mag-breastfeed :D kung di umubra, pump mo na lang.. kahit di direct breastfeeding, importante breastmilk pa rin, the best milk for babies talaga! good luck sis!

For moms here, it's really hard for us to produce milk once we stop breastfeeding.

My advise is to re-introduce your baby again to breastmilk. Better if direct to breast, but if ayaw niya kasi nasanay na siya sa bottle, try pumping. As with the experience of other moms here, even with pumping, it's hard to produce milk again. Always, try pa din feeding your baby directly kahit sa una ayaw niya.

Try to pump regularly, once every 3 hours or less, to stimulate production and para "maisip" ng breast na nagbe-breastfeed uli si baby. Milk production/supply depends on milk demand so "trick" your breasts that more milk is needed by pumping - this is the idea behind pumping regularly.

hi mommy! try mo parin siyang ibreastfeed! ok pa yan since may tumutulo. basta let the baby suck and suck dadami ulit yan in time. best way talaga ang baby mismo magsuck. para sa kanya din naman un!

hello mommy! parang anak ko ang dinedescribe mo ha! halos parehong pareho tayo sa mga babies natin. ang anak ko lang so far ok sa parehong breastfeed at bottlefeed, pag stored breast milk or formula from the bottle wala siyang problem, except kapag tinotopak anak ko and naghahanap ng breasts ko wala akong choice kahit tapos na siya. i think pampatulog or pampakalma na lang niya un.

pansin ko din madaling magising kapag breastfed siya. konting galaw ko lang gising agad. dapat talaga nakahiga ako sa tabi niya para mahaba haba tulog niya. problema nga un kasi pabalik na ako ng work.

wala pang 2 pounds ang nagain ng baby ko nung 1st month niya. kaya sinuggest na mixed feeding na daw. kasi sobrang stressed ako sa supply ko kaya ang konti lang. nung nadagdagan ng formula ayun relaxed na ako dun naman dumami milk ko. kaya 1-2 bottles of formula lang siya, minsan wala pa ulit.. tapos ang laki na. hndi mataba as in bochog, pero may laman na.

may factor din daw kung ilang months/weeks ka nanganak. ako 37 weeks pa lang nanganak na ako kaya maliit si baby. may friend ako almost 40 weeks na nung nanganak kaya malaki baby niya.. also sa family nila malalaki talaga babies nila pag nanganganak sila!

check mo din family history mo kung gatasin kyo. kami sa family ako lang matiyaga magbreastfeed, konti daw milk ng mommy ko sa aming magkakapatid kaya formula babies kami, pero determinado ako sa breastfeeding ko kaya meron pa ako ngayon.

` i breastfeed for 2weeks lang kasi
inverted nipples then not enough milk ..
aun , after 1 month lan ngkaroon na ko ee ..
sana puwede pa , may tumutulo na onteng onte pa ee .. ?

hi mommy! try mo parin siyang ibreastfeed! ok pa yan since may tumutulo. basta let the baby suck and suck dadami ulit yan in time. best way talaga ang baby mismo magsuck. para sa kanya din naman un!

hello din mommy! sad to say hindi na talaga ko nakapag-breastfeed sa kanya :( Super iyak kasi pag iniintroduce ko ulit sa kanya. Tapos days after na rin, nawala na rin yung milk ko. sayang! :(

working mom po ako, since day 1 ng breastfeeding namin ni baby konti lang milk ko...kaya hindi ko po siya na-exclusive breastfeed even for one day...di ko din na-try ubusin through pump kasi i tried to pump eh masakit...tsaka pag magsuck si baby masakit din kasi mostly nipples lang suck niya, hindi kasama areola...3 1/2 months na siya now, nagbbreastfeed pa din kami pag-uwi ko sa haws sa gabi...hindi po ako nagpupump ng milk sa office kasi hindi mother friendly ang office...i'm hoping na magtagal pa ang milk supply kong kakarampot  ;D  may mga days din na stop ako 1 da ng breastfeeding...pero until now meron pa din po konti...i'll try nga po uli magpump, baka sakali dumami...ganun po pala kasi dapat gawin, di ko po alam eh...i tried malunggay tablets pero onc a day lang...dapat pala 3x a day...kaya pala hindi effective sa akin...feeling ko lang pala un...

kaya pa po ba dumami milk supply ko kahit 3 1/2 months na si baby and i'm working?ano po pwede kong gawin? maski hindi po sya exclusive breastfed, feeling ko po kasi mas ok pa din one glass of breast milk than no breast milk at all...tama po ba un?

Sis Stay-At-Home-Mom:

Ang alam ko kase matitigil ang supply ng milk pag hindi mo ginamit. Automatic na ginagawa ng katawan yun. For my case, hindi kami magkaintindihan ng newborn ko nun. Pakiramdam ko may milk, pero ayaw naman ni baby. Kahit magpump ako, konti lang nakukuha. So after a week ng pagtry, tumigil na sa pagproduce ng milk kase nga hindi naman nagagamit.

Hi sis, mukhang mahirap na ata situation mo. Pero, I'll ask a churchmate who is a lactating expert. Kaya ako, kahit hindi nakaka-breastfeed, I try to express milk para continuous ang production.

hi sis, here's the reply of a churchmate who is a lactation consultant:

"It's still possible to breastfeed. There's such a thing as RELACTATION.  But it will take lots of determination and effort.  The mother has to persevere in decreasing the amount of bottles and giving her breast slowly daily, replacing 1 bottle at a time with her breast.  Your can log on to LA LECHE LEAGUE and research on relactation.  Hope she's able to do it."

Ayan, so go go go lang! ;D God bless!

hi mommy! I just read from what to expect when expecting the first year book that you can relactate by pumping. This will stimulate your breast to produce milk. So you could try pumping while trying to baby back to BF. This way pumping and baby's sucking will help stimulate milk production.
 Good luck mommy! Hope you and baby will be successful!

@stay-at-home-mom,

6mos. na rin yong baby ko, mixed feeding ako, pero during night time lang ang breastfeed. Humina ang milk supply ko, so may mga time na naiinis ang baby ko kapag wala na siyang makuhang milk, naawa ako. Yesterday i bought electric breast pump, pero parang wala namang nangyayari, sobrang konti lang talaga ang nakukuha kong milk.

mga sis ano pa ba pwede kong gawin para dumami ulit ang milk supply ko, working mom kasi ako. Gusto ko kasi now bumalik ulit sa breastfeeding kahit working mom ako.

Post by: joluessi on September 23, 2010, 12:32:02 pm
hi mommie ghnykhy, try to pump pa din kahit sa tingin mo walang lumalabas.. the more you pump or nurse your baby, mas dadami yan.. supply and demand nga lang daw yan eh.. hehe.. and as much as possible, give your breast to baby whenever you have time, pag nasa bahay ka.. ako working din, nagpa-pump ako sa office, at least 2x a day, and then, pag nasa bahay ako, breastfeed si baby.. although mixed feeding na siya, kasi minsan, sobrang takaw talaga niya, at least meron pa ring breastmilk.. more fluids, more soups (especially malunggay).. you might also want to try yung powdered malunggay capsule, Prolacta or Natalac or yung Fenugreek.

Post by: Kermy on August 28, 2011, 01:01:12 pm
My baby was born prematurely at 8 months. I was able to express breastmilk while she was confined in the ICU of the hospital but it only lasted for 3 weeks. My milk production probably stopped due to the stress I have to deal with while my baby is in the hospital. From the time my baby was discharged, he was formula fed.

It's been 3 months and I'm thinking of breast feeding him. Is it still possible? Thanks.

yup. it's still possible but mahirap. you would really need to be determined and committed to it para mag succeed ka. you can read up on how to relactate from the net. search ka lang sa google.

Post by: a_y_e_n on August 30, 2011, 07:07:02 pm
pareho tayo kermy! im also trying to relactate. problem ko naman si baby ayaw maglatch saken since nipple confused na siguro. nakachat ko sa isang online discussion si ms abbie yabot of LLL. eto sabi niya, I saved it kase for reference:

it is best if baby is below 4 months old, mommy is not working and can do a 6 week 24/7 direct latch with baby... how easy or how hard it is depends on :
1. is baby nipple confused?
2. is baby open to going back to breastfeeding? fast learner?
3. is mommy really open to relactation? her body's general health and relaxation capability
4. how supportive mommy's environment is to relactation (including family, househelp and doctors)


balitaan mo ko kung ano magyayari sayo ha.  :)

I agree with both mommy ayen and mommy purple_girl. :)

many moms have been able to re-lactate even months after they have not done it.

In Africa where mothers die of aids, women (surrogate mothers) who have not been breastfeeding for years were able to do so using malunggay and massage.  This is called lactation massage.  It uses light long strokes on the back and shoulders.  A massage center in greenhills dose this tyoe of massage.

@sis Kermy:

i sought the home service massage of fabella hospital midwives. usually it's 3 sessions (an hour a day, if i remember it right). they massaged my whole body to help me relax and to stimulate blood circulation. i felt "emancipated" from all the stress that time. i really don't know if that's FACT or myth, but my milk production improved after that. i only availed a day of their service though. i also took natalac (malunggay capsule) and took lots of fluid-- milk, water, soup, broth (in viands). expressing milk through breastpumps also stimulates milk production, but the best is to have your baby latch on. without sounding "bastos," our lamaze instructor told me to let hubby "latch on" because his force of sucking is greater than our baby's.  you can try hot compress (wet towel with warm water but not so warm to burn your skin) on your chest. it sort of "unclogs" those milk ducts. milk just drips from my nips afterwards. ;D

believe it or not, it took almost a year before my body ceased producing milk. i breastfed my son until he was two years old, and it was only when he turned three that i lost the uncomfy feeling of slightly engorged breasts, and there were times that i tried to squeeze milk from my breasts to see if i still have them (milk) and i was surprised i still do.  ;D

goodluck, mommy. hope you'd "revive" your milk production soon.

parang wala nang milk ang breasts ko. nahospitalize kasi ako ng more than a week. therefore, hindi ako nakapapagpadede. hindi rin ako nagkapagexpress dahil halos one week na groggy from onand off fever. to cut the story short, eto pagbalik ko, parang wala nang gatas. nakainom na ako ng ilang malunggay tablets at pinapanurse ko siya kahit napakasakit na ng nipples ko at nagtatry akong uminom ng maraming tubig ulit.

may pag-asa pa ba? ilang days kaya before bumalik yung milk? ngayon kasi napipilitan akong bigyan sya ng gatas sa bote lalo kapag grabe na yung iyak at halos half day nang hindi nakadede sa kin..... any thoughts... plssss.

My baby is now 4 months and turning 5 on November 4. I do have really low supply of milk and I lost my last drop of milk when he was 2 months. I tried pumping it that time pero wala nang lumalabas. I tried taking motilium (prescribed by lactation expert) at pumping my beast but I still have no luck since hindi ako masyado nakakapag pumup kasi medyo busy ako kay baby. Pero puede pa kaya ngayon kahit wala nang lumalabas sa breast ko na gatas? Gano po kaya katagal bago maestablish ulit yung milk ko pag nagpumup ulit ako? Salamat po sa magrereply.

@mommy mamaix26 - its always about the supply and demand.  at wlang mas effective sa pag drain ng milk sa breasts mo kundi yung baby mo.  as for relactating, i suggest that you see a breastfeeding counselor.  how long it will take for you to relactate depends on how long you can get your baby to learn how to drink milk from your breasts.  depende din yan kung me nipple confusion si baby or wala.  Good luck sis.

@sis Caddin -- im not sure how that will work kung 1 1/2 yrs old na si baby. kasi from what i understand if you want to relactate, you have to be with the baby 24/7 and direct feed ka dapat para matuto mag latch ulit si baby. why dont you seek help from a breastfeeding counselor? kung me FB ka, like mo yung FB page ng La Leche Manila and post your question there.  :) hope this helps.

You can still breastfeed if your baby is willing to latch on your breast.  Baka kasi nasanay na sa fast flowing milk galing sa bottle.  Though sayang din kung dika magbreastfeed kasi aside sa mahal ang infant milk (1-3 years old milks) mas nutritious din kasi breastmilk.  To increase milk supply, drink water before and after breastfeeding the baby.  Then take in as much sabaw as you can kung pwede every meal.  Yes nakakasawa din minsan puro sabaw peru you need it to help milk production.  Sabaw with malunggay is the best then there is this shell that also helps in milk production, I forgot the name sorry.  I can say that this shell is colored cream outside and medium to large sized.  Rough yung shell and you have to brush the dirt away before cooking.  I hope you can breastfeed again! :)

Sayang sissie... Best talaga for me breastfeeding... nasanay na ang baby mo sa bottlefeed because di masyadong mag-effort para makuha ang milk.  Sa breastfeeding kasi the baby has to stimulate first to get the milk moving... Tapos nasanayan na rin siguro ang taste ng formula kaysa breastmilk.  Anyway, just see to it that the baby gets burped and observe the reaction to the formula (sometimes kasi naka constipate or naka loose stool yung formula)

Huwag mo nang pilitin mommy zeatot.  Kawawa lang talga kayong dalawa.  See to it na nutritious yong food ni baby pag mg solids na.  Observe din reaction to milk formula.  Pag wala naman bad reaction, ok lang yan.  At least naka breastfeed ka kahit short period lang.  Think of it as an opportunity rin na mas may freedom ka.  Hindi masyadong naghahanap si baby kung wala ka.  Baby ko ayaw mag stop mg breastfeed medyo mahirap din kung may out of town trips ako. heheh :)

You can always try next time with the next child if meron kang plano to add. :)  I don't know if I mentioned before but my first son, 4 months lang talaga ako ng exclusive bf tapos ng mix na ako kasi parang ayaw na niya then by the 6th month formula na talaga.  Mas preferred niya kasi walang effort.  Eto namang second son, up until now - he's almost three years old ayaw pa magpa-awat... magtatantrum kung diko na pina bf.  heheh :)  in the meantime, bond with your child in different ways :)

Title: relactation
Post by: shin3ythree on December 08, 2013, 06:07:56 pm
Hello everyone, I'm new here. Tagal KO ng naghahanap ng forums about breastfeeding. I'm a first time mommy and my baby girl is turning 2 mos. This Tuesday. Ask ako ng advice re. Relactation. Nagpabreastfeed ako for almost 3weeks and nagstop ako kasi lagi naming nagbubuno ng baby KO dahil nagagalit sya kasi hina ng milk KO and inverted pa nipples KO. Since, nakapagbottle na sya sa nursery pa lang, hinayaan KO na lang na formula na lang inumin niya and di na din ako ngtyaga mag-pump kasi di pa umaabot ng 1 oz. yung napapump KO. Ngayon decided nako magpabreastfeed ulit kasi best un para Kay baby. Kaya lang di KO na nafi-feel na tumitigas yung boobs KO. Anong gagawin KO? Please help. Thanks!

Same problem ko pati niya mga mommies. 6months na baby ko and 3months kolang siya na breastfeed. Ayaw niya na mag latch kahit pilitin ko. Flat nipples kasi ako. May ways pa ba para mag produce milk ulit?

Good morning po! Today lang po ako nagregister sa site na ito. May tanong po kasi ako on how to relactate almost 2 months na po kasi mula noong nagwork ako at nagstop magpump para kay baby. Bale 4 months old na po siya at never po siyang dumede sakin kasi as in lubog po talaga ang aking nipples  :'( kaya laging pump lang ang ginagawa ko kasabay ng s26 na milk formula. Napansin ko po kasi na ngayon matagal mawala sipon niya e dati naman d siya nagkakasipon or ubo nung nakakadede pa siya ng gatas ko kaya gusto ko sana ulit magkagatas iipunin ko nalang sa work.

Possible din po kaya ang relactation kahit 6mos na ako nagstop? 8mos na kasi baby ko. Nagtry ako magpump pero walang 1oz ang nakukuha ko. Aside from that ayaw na isuck ni baby breast ko.

Hello mommies! I am a first time mom, for now turning 8 months na ang baby boy ko sa Sept.  1. Stay at home mom din po ako, si hubby lang ang nagwowork. 😊 Gusto ko pong humingi ng tips kung paano maaabalik milk supply ko. Since napanganak ko po si baby, hindi sya nakalatch sakin, nagkagatas po kasi ako mga 5 days na after manganak. Nilagnat na din sya that time kasi wala syang nadedede sakin, so pinacheck up namin agad si baby that night, so inadvice kami na mgformula muna for support. So nagbabottle fed si baby since then, nag purchase din ako ng di kamahalan na breastpump para mabigyan ko kahit papaano ng breastmilk si baby pero sobrang struggle ako kasi yung two breasts ko, 2oz lang nakukuha minsan 1oz lang. Hanggang sa natuyuan na ko ng gatas kasi kahit anong pump ko or hand express ko, di malabas ng maayos. Wala din akong ibang kasama kundi ang asawa ko, sya lang ang kahalinhinan ko sa pag aalaga pero nagwowork sya so kaming dalawa lang ni baby ang naiiwan sa bahay.

That time din, colic baby sya and mostly hindi na ko nakakapagpump na tulad ng advised na atleast 2-3hrs. At since flat nipples yung sakin, kahit anong try ko ipalatch si baby sakin, inaayawan lang niya at nakakatulog nalang sya sa sobrang pagod kakaiyak. Sinabihan din ako ng relatives ko na "gutumin ko daw at wag bigyan ng bote" triny ko kaso awang awa ako sa baby ko kaya ayun formula fed sya.

Awa ng Diyos, hindi naman sakitin ang baby ko pero alam ko sa age niya at development niya ay nagkakaroon ng delays. Like, hindi siksik yung katawan niya, pero yung weight naman niya is ok naman daw for his age sabi ng Dra., pero upto now hindi padin niya kyang umupo by himself o kaya sa pagdapa naman, matagal na ang 5 mins.. Naiinis lang kasi sya hehe 😅 Saka lagi syang nasasabihan na bakit ang payat niya for 7month old baby? Masyado lang akong worried para sa baby ko, na hanggang ngayon sinisisi ko sarili ko na hindi ako capable enough dahil di ko na breastfeed baby ko dahil alam ko yun ang pinakaimportante para sa health niya. Kaya eto po,  tinatry ko pdin magkagatas kahit alam kong malabo na. 😢 Sa totoo lang, lahat ng negative na sinsabi nila sa baby ko,  sobrang masakit,  naiiyak nalang ako pero alam ko naman ginawa ko lahat ng kaya ko para maalagaan sya.

Haaays, pasensya na mga mommies, medyo madrama...but hoping for helpful tips baka sakaling maibalik ko pa BM ko.

Thank you in advance mommies! 😊😊😊

Hi sis! You can search on google about ways to relactate though it may be hard since almost 8months na si baby, exclusive breast fed ang baby ko for 2 yrs then mixed na up to 4 yrs since sumuko na din ang gatas ko sa sobrang tagal hehe! anyway while breast feeding i take lots of malunggay, napurga na nga ako sa malunggay nun saka lots of fruits and veggies talaga plus the malunggay supplement pa, maybe try eating this and may massage daw para manumbalik ang milk, i just dont know how, anyway dont be too hard on yourself, a lot of moms naman share the same dilemma as you plus 8 months na si baby start introducing na sa fruits and veggies para mas maging healthy.dont mind other people, just focus ka lang sa kid mo kahit ano pa sabihin ng iba. 😊
