i've been bfeeding exclusively since my baby was 5 days old, kasi non lang po ako ngkaron ng milk. then after 2 weeks, he turned yellowish. the pedia told me to stop bfeeding until ma-diagnose clearly what type of jaundice was it. during that 1 week, i expressed my milk para di mawala. it was diagnosed bfeeding jaundice so i resumed feeding him again, though not always directly from me 'coz i sometimes had to go out, so he was bottlefed pero bmilk pa din but pag nauubos yung expressed milk ko, he was given formula 2-4 oz lang naman til i get home. my problem now is, nagtataka ako kasi sa gabi, i breastfeed him and okay naman ang feeding nasasatisfy naman sya. when he wakes up in the morning, i'd breastfeed him for like 2-4 hours with little breaks lang, di pa din sya nasasatisfy. even after he's taken a bath, he'd nurse from me again, he wouldn't sleep 'coz he's still hungry. i give him my breasts alternately pero siguro because na-consume na niya milk from both breast, he'd cry and wouldn't latch anymore kahit ano gawin ko. so what i do is napipilitan ako to give him formula para lang masatisfy sya. after giving him the formula okay naman and nakakatulog naman ng ayos.

i don't know if i'm doing something wrong. i'm taking malunggay caps 3x a day, drinking lots of fluids and soups, always letting my baby stimulate my breast to increase milk supply.

bfeeding moms...i need all the help i can get 'coz i don't want to give up bfeeding.

help,
she

Hi She,

Just like you, im also a breasfeeding mother.  I just gave birth to my 3rd child, he's almost 4 months old and have been breasfeeding him. I understand how you feel, lalo na when you really want to breasfeed your baby. That happened na also to me. I realized lately lang din, that when you're pressured or stressed, it affects the production of our milk. I noticed when i am relaxed and was able to sleep well, i have plenty of milk. We can't avoid being stressed at times, and all i can tell you is , its okay to give formula milk kung talagang wala na silang nakukuhang milk sa atin. Don't force yourself. It's not your fault. Our bodies just need to rest lang sometimes , once we've rested our body will start producing again, kasi you're doing the right thing naman, drinking lots of fluids, sabaw, malunggay. Don't eat maasim na sabaw daw. Ako I dont. Then if you feel like you have lots of milk,pump mo and freeze it. That's what i do, i freeze some of my milk, sayang din kasi. Don't worry too much.  :) Good luck! Happy breastfeeding!

Hi She. Don't give up! You seem to be on the right track kasi it's said that the more the baby feeds from you, the more you'll produce milk. In my case, I hardly produced breastmilk (even with malunggay capsules and plenty of water and soup) and my baby had difficulty latching. Whenever I expressed (for at least an hour every 3-4 hours) less than 1oz lang lumalabas. If your milk is increasing when you express, your body may be starting to listen to your baby's cues for more milk. A clear sign that your baby's not getting enough milk is if he's not thriving and is losing weight after the first two weeks (it's normal for a little bit of newborn weight to be lost initially). Also if he's not wetting enough diapers in a day. Ok lang to supplement with formula but try using yung mga premie nipples, they have smaller holes kaya he'd still prefer to suck your breast come feeding time.

My baby was a little bit jaundiced too when she was born (though not enough to put her under bili lights). My pedia recommended morning sun between 7:15am and 8:30am. She also said that pooping helps eliminate the yellowness; so if your baby's a regular pooper mas mababawasan agad yung jaundice.

try to do direct feedings muna.  this will help you boost your milk supply. and if possible, don't give mix feedings para maging malakas ang demand for breastmilk.

Pero how to fight yung frustration knowing (and hearing from your baby's screams) na nagugutom na sya?

Correct me if I'm wrong na breastfeeding yata is for stay-at-home mommies talaga, as in walang tanggalan? Kasi po in my case nabibitbit ko pa nga si baby sa work and may private room kami pero wala pa rin, ang taba-taba niya and parang I was thinking na what if I'm starving my baby sa kakaunting lumalabas sakin? Alam kong gutom pa sya kaya di bale na lang. I guess it's weakness na rin on my part, better luck to me next time, sana.

definitely not only for stay-at-home moms.  it could work well even for working moms.  i'm a working mom who was able to breastfeed exclusively for 2 straight years, started mixed feeding when my son turned 2.  he's now 3 1/2 years old, and he's still on bedtime nursing.  i prefer to follow the child-led weaning.

milk establishment is very important at the earliest stage.  this will ensure that your supply will continue to be very well established even if you go back to work with the help of your breastpump.

i am now bfeeding exclusively. nagtataka lang ako parang mabagal weight gain ng baby ko. i bfeed him on demand and halos wala na nga ako ginagawa kundi mgbreastfeed. breaks lang is when i eat and take a bath. he's 3kgs. at birth, now he's 2 months and 4.3kgs. pa lang sya. diba dapat 1kg every month ang gain?

one more prob of mine, yun nga di na ako makaalis sa tabi niya. i tried putting him on the sling pero ayaw niya kasi siguro he couldn't move freely. pag kaylangan ko umalis napipilitan ang yaya mgbigay ng formula kasi kulang yung iniiwan kong breastmilk. konti lang naiipon ko kasi nga he's nursing the whole day. i couldn't bring him naman kasi i ride puv's.

hey i can relate to this. when I was breastfeeding, parang yun na lang ang pwede kong gawin, every hour nagugutom sya tapos more than 45 minutes syang kakain every time. Chubby naman si baby nun pero parang parating gutom, and ang hirap mag-insist na i-breastfeed ko lang sya exclusively, siguro kasi first child ko sya and nakaka-guilty pag iiyak sya dahil gutom and tinitingnan ka na ng masama ng mga kasambahay mo. Hehe.

i can't help you out with regards to your dilemma, since ako mismo i did not get to breastfeed exclusively. in fact, when i started to work i eventually stopped lactating, pero nagko-comfort sucking pa rin si baby sa akin. i accept my shortcomings, and i try not to be hard on myself. i wish you luck, and i salute all the mothers who do get to continue breastfeeding! :)

I had the same prob with my baby too when he was younger. Back then he was also exclusively breastfed. I read articles at kellymom.com that it happens, some babies even up to 10 days. My baby before poops once a week lang. I feel there should be no cause for worry because he's happy, doesn't complain of any pain and his tummy isn't firm. Also when he poops, the consistency doesn't seem he's constipated. Our Pedia however isn't confident. She said BFd babies poop more than once a day. We had him xrayed and there's no obvious negative result. We were advised to go to a pedia gastro-something, which we found out can cost us almost 100K. We put the plan off unless we see something wrong. After 2 weeks his pupu became frequent and regular.

We put the plan off unless we see something wrong. After 2 weeks his pupu became frequent and regular.

same here,i asked our pedia regarding this matter.nung newborn p baby ko he would move his bowel frequently.ganun daw talaga pag breastfeed,kada dede mag dudumi.nung mga three months naman siya na alarmed kami kc he would move his bowel after three days and for one month ganun siya hanggang sa ngaun every five days naman.akala ko noon constipated siya but how could that be e bfeed siya?his pedia assured us that there's nothing to be worried about kc mareregulate  lang daw bowel movements ni baby around one year of age.and yung irregular bowel movements ni baby is normal lang.minsan on the fourth or fifth day niya na di nag pupu tas magpupupu na siya two times a day pa and it's normal  so there's nothing to be worried about.
i had this problem din na yung baby ko doesn't seem to get enough milk from me kc he is easily distracted.for example naka latch on siya then may magsalita lang sa family namin or makarinig ng favorite commercials niya(yeah,believe it or not yung clear and cream silk or yung lucky me na kumakanta maglaro tau lalala)na didistract siya manonood then di na mag lalatch on.tapos iiyak pag tapos na kc gutom pa pero once na na break na yung first latch on ayaw n niya mag latch on.nung check up na niya sa OB nag gain naman daw siya ng weight so kahit distracted siya pagdede as long as his gaining weight there's nothing to be worried about.his 7.6 kilos na at 5months. :D

it helps na relax tayo when we breastfeed...ganun din problem ko before parang feeling ko di enough yung milk na nakukuha niya sa akin. my mom told me na kailangan relax talk to baby or sing him a song while nagfeed sya sayo. sabi ng iba its all in the mind if we worry too much na kulang ang nakukuha ng baby magiging kulang daw talaga. mag exclusive breastfeed ka muna for the week and kung talagang hungry pa sya iba yung utusan mo to feed him using formula para alam niya yung difference. i read it somewhere na kung mommy din nagbibigay ng formula parang naguguluhan daw ata ang baby so if you plan to mix feed iba dapat yung nagbibigay ng formula.

practice makes perfect. also ask your pedia about it.

about naman the poo time. my baby now doesnt poo regularly and advise ng pedia is to give him atleast 4oz of water daily. i read in the net (searched sa google about baby poop) that breastfed babies don't poo naman daw regularly kasi walang nawaste na vitamins kaya walang dapat ipoo as long as regular naman yung pee niya and nag utot naman sya its ok.

mommyjavvy820, ako din BF sa youngest ko, he is 1.6 yrs old na, until now bf pa din ako.... actually pareho tayo mas gusto ng baby ko sa left,  and napansin ko din na mas madami milk ang left side compare sa right... so ang ginagawa ko sa araw sa left, pag medyo tulog na lipat ko sa right, and then pag gabi puro sa right na...tapos lagi pa din ako may sabaw, fruits and mga green leafy vegetables yon daw mganda sa bf moms, itry mo din... ako honestly never pa ako nag take ng natalac.  medyo libangin mo para magustuhan din niya yong sa right side kasi kung ihinto mo talaga yong sa kabila baka mawalan na totally ng milk supply yong side na yon.

 ang maganda sa mga BF moms. itry mo din, ako never pa ako nag take ng
mommyJ, true siguro yon, ganon din ang pagkakaalam ko e, yong isa daw rice at yong isa e drinks/ulam... mas matamis daw yong isa....

ganun din ako nung nagumpisa mas marami yung supply ng left ko pero what I do alternate talaga lagi ganun kasi sabi ng aunt ko para daw lagi may milk yung dalawang breasts. i read din sa books na dapat every 2hrs nag extract tayo ng milk so kahit hindi nagbf si baby sa atin extract tayo ng milk. ako rin ganun problem ko ngayon kasi parang humina yung supply ko, pero mukhang dahil din sa puyat.

hi mommy javvy! i'm a breastfeeding SAHM, currently bfeeding my second son for almost 8 months na. nung una problema ko din yan, nakaka-frustrate diba. lalo na pag umiiyak ang baby, napipilitan ako magbigay ng formula kahit ayoko. pero di ako nag-give-up, what i did was constantly put him on my breasts, as in di na kami naghihiwalay mag-ina. ;D the soups and the malunggay helps, pero what increases the milk talaga is yung frequent stimulation ng baby...the ever famous law of supply and demand na sinasabi ng mga bfeeding articles, totoong totoo po. ;) don't measure your milk supply sa dami ng na-pump mo kasi hindi ka talaga masasatisfy pag yun ang tiningnan mo. basta just nurse directly as often as your baby wants kasi sya ang magsasabi sa system ng mommy if he needs more, surprisingly your breast will produce more talaga.
important mommy to give him both your breasts para pantay ang milk production kasi pag sa isa lang sya ngffeed,naku mommy baka yun isang breast malaki at yung isa maliit. ;D
good luck mommy, kaya mo yan!
Title: Re: need help low milk supply :(
Post by: she on June 10, 2008, 02:23:02 pm
I don't know if familiar po kayo dito sabi kasi ng matatanda yung right breast daw un yung solid foods like rice and then yung left yung liquid kaya daw dapat laging pantay pag nag BF ka hehe..

oo nga mommy naniniwala ako dyan...actually sakin left ang food, right ang water, kasi yung medyo thick and creamy yun daw ang solids side, then yung lighter at malabnaw yun ang liquids side. kaya nga for the first 6 months no water talaga diba kasi we supply water already through bmilk.
sabi pa nga sakin nung naghilot sakin pag may hiccup daw baby bfeed lang...totoo naman mas mabilis mawala hiccup kesa painumin ng water from the bottle. ;)

Drink drink drink as much water, juice as you can.  At least 2 glasses before and during breast feeding or pumping.  And lots more glasses throughout the day.  Almost to the point that you feel you want to go to the bathroom all the time!  Soup, fruits, vegetable all help because obviously, liquid is the main ingredient.

Relax and rest.  You need it to let the hormones do the walking!

Don't sleep on your chest.  Lie down on your back so no pressure on the breasts and the breasts will not "think" they're full.

Breastfeed directly as frequently as possible.  Some pumps do not express milk efficiently.  Baby will also need you for the warmth and comfort, even if he is full.

tips on milk supply:
- lots of liquids :)  preferrably warm or hot :)  pls stay away from caffeine :) wont decrease your supply, but remember what you drink, is same as what u feed your baby ^_^
** read some tips that if you can, DRINK WHILE NURSING :)  before and after would be great also :)
- malunggay :)  this is really really really effective :) there are a lot of malunggay capsules/supplements in the market today, you may try that :)  what i did, or what my mom did (hehe)  she planted malunggay, then she would just boil this with water and a little bit of salt.  Most moms use malunggay as an ingredient in a dish, my mom made malunggay the main ingredient.. it's like eating the malunggay like a malunggay salad :)  the taste.. well.. not so good hehe .. but highly effective in producing milk for sure :)
- think happy thoughts :)
- relax.. if you're stressed, you will notice your milk supply will decrease...
- try to feed as often as you can.. if your baby won't feed so often (most girls don't feed as much as boys) express milk and store in freezer... expressing milk as often as you can will help in continuous supply of milk.. it's like telling your body that you need milk.. milk is produced on demand.. so if your child's demand is high, the body will produce more.. so if you take a routine say every 2 to 3 hours of feeding/expressing milk.. then your body will produce milk every 2 to 3 hours also :)
- put warm compress on your breasts..plus a light massage.. to help ease out milk... (this also helps for engorged breasts)
- it would be great to have a good breastpump :)  really good ones are a bit expensive, try scouting for used ones :)  look for those with double pumps :)  most of the time, when we express milk on 1 breast, the other breast leaks milk also, so double pumps would ensure no milk is wasted, plus you save time on expressing milk :)  and if you plan to breastfeed for a long time, get the electric pumps :)  this task even though rewarding, is also very very tiring.. so would be great if you wouldn't have to manually do it :)
- heard about lactation massages?, haven't tried this yet though :)

hi mommy! the one thing i learned and did when i was having problem, NEVER GIVE UP!!!  :)  someone told me, impossible na hindi nasasatisfy ang baby mo, kasi our breasts produce milk that satisfies our baby's need. basta breastfeed ka lang mommy, eventually magkakasundo rin kayo ni baby. :D i've been successfully bfeeding for 8 months now, i'm so glad i didn't give up on bfeeding. go mommy, you can do it! ;)

Hay kainggit talga kayo mga mommies! Ako kasi, one month lang ako nakapag BF sa anak ko, inverted nipples ako. mabibilang mo lang sa kamay kung ilang bilis nakadede directly anak ko mostly breast pump ang gamit ko. pag BF ko siya directly sa dede eh iyak siya ng iyak kasi wala siyang makuhang gatas.. nag try din ako ng natalac capsules pero kunti lang talga lumabas sa kin.. nag gagatas din ako nun pero sad to say bigo ako... :(

Sabi nung OB ko nun mas maganda daw kung directly BF sa dede at hindi pump para daw hindi humina ang supply ng milk at nasstimulate ang hormones ng mother para maglabas pa ng milk katawan natin.

try mo sis yung seafood na halaan(seashells) pampalakas daw yan ng milk supply very good alternative kung sawa ka na sa malunggay soup.

Ask me lang, totoo ba na nakakatulong yung pagsipsip ng husband sa dede pag inverted ang nipples? kasi my tita told me and some of the nurse staff sa hospital na kung dito nga lang daw mister ko eh pasipsip daw yun para may lumabas, i dont know kung biro lang yun o totoo..

Payo ko is padedehin lagi si baby kahit ubos na.  Basta don't forget to burp her well afterwards.  Make sure you get plenty of liquids but not too much water this will decrease the quality of your milk.  Avoid softdrinks, don't sleep on your breasts, avoid getting stressed or anxious.  Malunggay is the best!  Maraming pwedeng gawin sa malunggay or luto sa malunggay.  Kung maglalagay ka ng leafy veggie sa ulam think if pwede ba ito ma substitute ng malunggay.  ;)

::u2:: ilang months na baby mo?
yan din problem ko eh pag nasa work ako hindi ok ang production ko ng milk. di na nag engorge yung breast ko eh pag pipilitin ko naman ng pump mga 1 oz lang so ginagawa ko inaantay ko na engorged na talaga ako para maka 16oz ako. sabi ng sister (nurse) kasi daw si vierte is into solid food na 8 months na kasi. pero pag kasama ko naman si vierte ok naman yun supply ko ng milk kasi mukhang nasatisfy naman sya sa nakukuha niya sa akin. pero may stock pa din syang formula sa bahay kasi kulang na yung napump ko daily for him

hello Ms.Gailey :)
Actually mag3mos pa lang yun baby ko sa July 9. Kailangan ba magschedule ako ng pagpump? kc pagkasama ko naman sya nasasatisfy ko naman din sya. Pero kapag dito na ko sa work hanggang 6oz lang o minsan less pa nakukuha ko... nagwo-worry ako na baka di magtagal mawalan agad ako gatas? 
Title: Re: my baby doesn't seem to get enough milk from me
Post by: gailey on July 07, 2008, 08:15:50 pm
hi U2 oo ischedule mo yung pump mo para di ka maubusan. ako ganito ginagawa ko since 2pm yung shift ko ang last "nanan" (feed) ni vierte sa akin is 1230 so pagdating ko ng office inum ako 2 glasses ng water then pump na agad ako tapos every 2hours na after that o kaya by demand (pag sumakit yung breasts pump agad) hanggang masanay yung body mo na ganun yung pag pump mo pag di mo kasama baby.

before scheduled na pump drink water, during pumping drink water and after din water ulit.

kaya mo yan!

Thank you Mom Gailey :)

ano kaya pwede ko i-take na vitamins? feeling ko nagdry din kc skin ko.  :-* at minsan parang nauubos na kandila pakiramdam ko :( kahit malakas ako magwater at lagi ako may soup alam ko di sapat dahil sa puyat at pagod sa trabaho.

Gusto ko sana maging matagal yun supply ko ng milk kay baby Eula. 3mos pa lang sya ngayon. Dapat ba lagi ako nagtake ng NATALAC? kahit ba haggang sa mag1yr na bebe ko? kc minsan lang ako nagtake nun, tuwing kailan ba advisable 3xa day? ilan mg?



Senxia na gusto ko lang talaga

naku ako din parang na drain na. eto yung advise ng cousin inlaw ko who exclusively breastfed his son till 2yo. lagi dapat may food sa tabi natin kahit crackers and especially fruits kasi nga parang natutuyuan tayo after pumping or breastfeeding para ok din yung produce ng milk. as for the natalac naman nung nagstart ako bumalik sa work 3x a day ako nagtake kung ilang mg naku di ko napansin kung ilan mg yun nabili ko. ngayon 6 tablets kasi humina yun supply ko eh. mukhang effective naman sa akin yung pag take ng natalac so try mo din mag take 3x a day.

mommy u2 electric breastpump ba gamit mo? working din kasi ako. before manual gamit ko konti lang milk na naiiwan ko kay baby pero never pa nangyari na kulang kasi i think that is what he needs for that period. nung 3mos kasi si baby nagiiwan ako ng 12oz lang. kasya naman yun nga lang direct agad uwi ko wala ng lakwatsa. i take natalac capsules, effective sakin.now kasi paguwi ko lang sa house dun ako ng pump hassle kasi sa office and mas mabilis pag fully engorge na breast.  in one pumpng session sa isang breast, 10oz napupump ko. freezer ko na yun for tom. then dun sa part na yun ko ilatch si baby, para sya magdrain ng excess. i believe kasi na di nauubos supply ng milk specially if si baby talaga ang nagsuck. once na sleep na sya, that's the time na pump ko naman yung isang breast. i take lots of fluid sa office pa lang and nagdadala din ako ng fruits. to maintain the supply, avoid caffeinated drinks or even chocolates, it would take the moisture of your body. try to relax while breastfeeding or even pumping. if you feel like konti na lang lumalabas, stop, relax for a while and resume again. if you have time massage the breast area from shoulder down near the nipple area with simple hand strokes. now, im leaving my baby with 23-25oz of milk a day.
pero mind you, sakto lang din yun sa kanya.. it really takes a lot of effort for us moms to breastfeed our baby lalp na if we're working pero it's all worth it..

i also take pala calcium and natalbest as my supplements..

Mommy Lizdm thank you ang ganda ng share mo sa akin :)
electric pump ang gamit ko :) sige i will try na magtake ng mga supplements at iiwasan ko magdrink ng may caffeine  :-X minsan kasi sa kagustuhan ko makainom ng maiinit at antok, nakakapagcofi ako at chocolate flavor yun Anlene ko (Pwede ba anlene chocolate??? di ba flavor lang yun???) :( alam ko sobra kasalan sa bebe ko at minsan nga pati peanut butter bad din sa akin pero good sa baby kaya ginagawa ko :)
 

Ano ba dapat ko i-take na di ako aantukin? sana'y kc ako magmilk kaso napansin ko nagtrigger allergy ko :( okey ba magANMUM ako? at ano Vitamins pwede ko take? help naman po :)

hi u2, if you're not taking calcium supplement dont stop taking milk. kasi baka naman mawalan ka ng calcium sa katawan mo. chocolate is ok once in a while pero coffee and soda, no no talaga ako dun. try fish or meat broth and naalala ko few days after i gave birth pinagluto ako ng tahong with gata, ok daw gata for milk production. fruits and veggies important din, kasi accdg to my doctor, pag puro water daw ang intake ni mommy parang water lang din daw nafefeed ni baby.. i'll post yung binigay sakin na diet for lactating moms.. right now eto lang nareremember ko.. kasi to be honest medyo mahirap i-follow and maintain.. but it's good to have an idea. and malalaman mo din naman sa sarili mo if your eating the right kind of food or not.

rice - 6cups a day
fruits - 4 kinds a day
veggies - 1-2cups a day, not sure, ill check
milk - 2 glasses a day
taho - twice a week
egg - every other day
butter, oil (canola,olive, and the like)
meat, pork and fish - i'll check how much in a day
water and broth

U2,try to drink soup with malunggay.kami pag nag titinola with malunggay talaga tapos pabalik balik ako ng scop for the sabaw.masarap kc hehe.try mo din natalac capsules,or clusivol OB.those works for me upto now breastfeeding padin ako fully,bihira mag mix pag naalis lang ako o naalis kami pero bihira talaga.my baby is now 10 months old.ang saya mag breastfeed kc never nagkaron ng diarrhea or never na constipate baby ko.malakas siya kumain ng solids.saludo ako to breastfeeding moms lalo na sa mga workingmoms na still breastfeeding.
Title: Re: my baby doesn't seem to get enough milk from me
Post by: gailey on July 11, 2008, 08:30:56 pm
may clusivol ob pala, di pa naman ako nag vitamins ngayon. lamon kung todo lamon lang and natalac at malunggay herb tea.

qstn sa mga Working BF moms

turning 9months na si vierte and napansin ko lang na pag nasa work ako di na gaanong engorged yung breast ko usually sumasakit lang sya pag patapos na yung shift ko pag nag 2hr interval ako na pump konti lang yung na-pump (mga 2-3oz) ko compared to yung antayin ko na talagang masakit na sya nakaka pump ako ng (8 to 10 oz) nagworry lang ako kasi baka pag inantay ko yung 7hr bago mag pump eh mawalan ako totally ng milk. pero pag kasama ko naman si vierte ok naman yun produce ng milk kasi di naman sya nagagalit.

ganito din ba experience nyo?

2x a day ata. ;D limot ko na kc i stopped taking it na. as for the milk supply,mga sis ganon talaga,one the baby starts on solid,unti unti mag dedecrease ang supply natin.maliit na nga dibdib ko ngayon e saka di na ko na eengorge pero meron padin basta na susuck ni baby so make sure kahit nag pupump kyo,nag susuck padin si baby sa breast niyo for milk kc sila nag sstimulate ng hormones to produce milk(yung sucking nila),and it's not the same  as the suction of a pump. :)

sabaw, shellfish, malunggay, and try pro lacta. dapat always hydrated ka so keep a glass of water nearby. drinking warm water before and after breastfeeding (or expressing milk) also helps.  :D goodluck

help din po. Si baby ko gusto niya sa left lang lagi dede. Pag lipat ko na siya sa right ayaw niya suck nagwawala. 11 days old pa lang si baby. Nitong week lang siya natuto isuck nipple ko kasi tinuruan ako ng OB ko nung check up namin ni baby nung Tuesday. Una nagaaway muna kami bago niya masuck nipple ko. Sanay din kasi ako na sa left hawak kay baby (ulo nasa left) though right handed ako kaya hirap din ako iposition siya sa kanan. Nung una pump lang ako tapos sa bottle niya dede milk ko. Nung times na yun dami ko gatas. Naninigas din breast ko from time to time kaya pump ako every after 2 hours as much as possible. Pero nung natuto na siya feed saken parang di na naninigas breasts ko. Parang feeling ko din onti na lang milk ko kasi malambot na breast ko. Pag tulog siya try pa din ako pump kasi masakit na nipples ko gawa ng lagi nga siya sa left dede. Ngayon nagpump ako napakaonti ng lumabas. Malambot both breasts. Normal ba to mga mommies? Pag nagdede naman siya sa left tumutulo naman milk ko sa right (let down). Ayoko mawala milk ko. :( Kahit pump ng pump tyinatyaga ko pero parang ayun nga napansin ko lagi na malambot breasts ko. Umurong na ba gatas ko? Ayoko kasi pure formula si baby. Mixed feeding kasi si baby. May times kasi na ayaw talaga dumede saken. :( Huhuhu ano po gagawin ko? Advice naman po. Thanks!

Mixed feeding din ako. the whole day na nasa office ako, formula milk siya..tapos pag uwi ko hanggang sa buong magdamag at hanggang before ako makaalis ng office, breastfeeding ako.. nakakatakot! baka maubusan na din ako ng mik.. sama hindi..

whenever nakakabasa ako about moms who are having difficulty in breastfeeding nalulungkot ako...im proud to say that im breastfeeding my son Quillan, EXCLUSIVELY, NO FORMULA MILK, for 2 years now!

my secret, aside from the ginisang halaan with lots of soup and malunggay leaves, i also take natalac capsule 2x a day. lots of fluid in take everyday... lagi mo lang sya padedeen...as much as possible wag mo ng haluan ng formula para hindi masira yung rythm ng milk supply mo... you know the rules of supply and demand...

honestly, medyo hirap na din me ngayon kasi ayaw niya pang humiwalay, no prob for me at all kc im SAHM, but the thing is, he's big na...hirap din pag nsa public and i cant work at home coz whenever i start, he always calls for me to dede...kaya think about it...you know the pros and cons...

Hmmmm I don't think bigla na lang yan mawawala unless magkulang ng stimulation. Padedein mo lang si baby sayo for sure lalabas yan sis. Nung una ganyan din ako. So ginawa ko talagang nagpadede ako kay baby. Every 2-3 hours or basta pag gumuguhit na yung dede ko papasuck ko na kay baby. Pag minsan mahaba tulog niya I wake her up then padedein ko hanggang sa makatulog siya uli cause kusa naman siya bumibitaw sa nipple. Nakahiga ako kung padedein siya pag ganung ginigising ko siya cause dumederecho tulog niya once bumitaw na siya sa nipple. So ayun dumami milk ko. Wag ka mafrustrate lalo ka lang mawawalan ng gana na maperfect niyo ni baby breastfeeding Make sure din na alternate ang boobs na pinapadede mo. Basta si baby ang makakapagpalabas ng milk mo.

Mga sis may question ako. I am back na kasi sa manila and si baby naiwan sa mom ko sa province. 3 days na ko di nakakapagbreastfeed pero nagpapump ako. I noticed bumaba na supply ng milk ko. I decided to take Natalac na. However, iniisip ko kung effective ba ang ginagawa ko para lang di umurong milk ko in a way na kahit bumaba supply ng milk basta pump lang ng pump para di umurong and take Natalac nga to help. Makakahelp nga ba mga sis? Kasi ang mangyayari niyan sa weekends ko lang mapapadede si baby. Buti na lang din mahaba ang dadating na holiday. For sure exclusive na uli si baby saken magfeed nun. Please help mga sis. Ayaw ko umurong milk ko. Kahit every weekend lang na mapabreastfeed ko si baby ok na saken wag lang talaga uurong milk ko.

Naku sis cye ang tagal mo pala nastop magpabreastfeed. May possibility nga na umurong na yan pag ganun. Sana nagpump ka muna pag ganung iyak ng iyak si baby pag pinapadede mo sayo. Tapos try try mo na sayo siya dede. Ganun lang ginawa ko til namaster na niya pagsuck saken. Pero mas OK pag si baby talaga suck sayo. In the morning try mo pasuck. help mo siya na masuck yung nipple mo. For sure naman tinuruan ka ng OB mo or pedia kung paano magpabfeed. OK lang naman na magiiyak siya sa morning pampalakas daw mg baga yun saka di pa prone sa kabag pag cry sa morning. Alternate mo pagfeed ha kaliwa kanan ganun din sa pagpump.

There is this concept na re-lactation... even moms who stopped breastfeeding for months can still breastfeed. It takes a lot of patience though.

You might want to try to hire a lactation consultant. I know one, si zeny... check her site http://zenconsulting.multiply.com/

If you want to do it yourself, marami sa internet na how to's... :) From the breast feeding classes I've attended (ang group na MOMIMOR usually may free breastfeeding classes check mo din sa site ni zeny sa calendar usually every month may free session and support group), I learned na you will just need a small tubing, a bottle of milk and of course your breast and your baby hehe. Ididikit yung tubing sa breast mo, yung tubing ngsusuction naman ng milk sa bote... kumbaga dinadaya mo baby mo.. pinadede mo sya pero yung milk galing sa tubing na pinapadrip sa nipple... para your baby will suckle but won't get fussy due to lack of milk... the milk dripping on your nipple solves that :) medyo malabo ata ang description ko hehe, sorry... You have to religiously do this until bumalik ang supply ng milk mo kasi stimulation from your baby's suckling is the best way to up your milk supply :)

and oh.. wag pilitin ang baby to suckle, kasi higher ang tendency to refuse the nipple..kumbaga natratraumatize sila. Best to tease them first.

goodluck :)

Breastfed (pure) my youngest daughter for 3.5 years (December last year lang ako nag stop).  Ini-stop ko na lang kasi in preparation sa pagpasok niya sa school sa June, kahiya namang nagdedede pa sya sa akin.  SAHM ako ngayon, wasn't able to breastfed my other 2 kids that long before (the longest dati was 4 months lang for my eldest, mixed pa, coz I was working then) kaya kinareer ko sa bunso.

For those who like to breastfeed their babies, para dumami ang gatas tama yung kumain ng masabaw na ulam lalo na may malunggay, halaan, tahong (ingat lang pag may red tide).  Yung hipag ko naman sabi ok din daw yung may dahon ng sibuyas.  She breastfed her 5 kids.  Tapos walang diet-diet kasi you need all the nutrition you can get kasi 2 kayo need ng pagkain.  But be sure to eat healthy.  Matakaw ang breastfeeding moms pero hindi naman pwedeng basta anong makutkot lang (chips, softdrinks, etc) ang kainin pag gutom.  Ako nun, I'm hungry every hour pero have to check the things I eat kahit snacks lang.  Ang saya lang kasi kahit matakaw ako I even lost weight becoz of breastfeeding.  (The thinnest I went was 103 lbs, even lower than my normal weight nung dalaga pa ako. My weight after giving birth was 135 lbs.).  Pero ngayon nag gain na ako ulit, nasa normal weight ko na ako - 120 lbs and will maintain it na lang kasi nag stop na nga ako mg BF.

Warm water stimulates milk kaya pwedeng punasan or hilutin nyo ng bimpong may mainit or maligamgam na tubig ang dibdib nyo before padedehin ang baby.  Ok din ito kasi at least alam nyong malinis lagi ang dede ni baby di ba?

Avoid sleeping with your arms up.  Di ba minsan pag natutulog tayo, nilalagay yung kamay sa noo.  Iwasan kasi magde-decrease ang milk supply kasi nai-stretch ang ugat na dinadaluyan ng milk.  Nangyari sa akin dati, hindi pantay dami ng milk ko, mas madami sa kanan kasi nagtataas ako ng kanang braso ko sa pagtulog.  Kaya mas gusto ng anak ko dumede sa kanan kaya may slight na difference tuloy ngayon sa size ang breasts ko.  Kaya importante na alternate breasts ang pagpadede or else, ang sagwang tingnan na hindi pantay ang ating dibdib mga sis.   =)

And yes law of supply and demand po ang milk production natin. That's the wonder of nature sa atin.  Kaya sa mga working moms, ok na mag pump na lang ng milk before you go to work and while at work, then give it to your kid when you're at home na. Ok naman ang mixed feeding kasi at least your kids will still get the nutrition from your milk.

Don't breastfeed right after you arrive from work or after a strenuous activity.  You pump it and throw it and after ilang minutes saka pa lang magpadede.  Sirang gatas kasi yun and pwedeng mag lagnat si baby.

Yung masahe or hilot is a big help basta alam nung nagmamasahe yung tamang paraan.  Usually it's to massage your shoulder blade pataas, parang pa butterfy stroke sa likod then pa spread out na hagod.  Nakakatulong kasi yun to open up the veins na dinadaanan ng milk kaya lalakas yung milk supply after.

Take your vitamins also kasi it's not enough na may milk, dapat maganda quality ng milk that we give our kids. Also have a calcium supplement also kasi syempre ka share din natin sa calcium ng katawan natin ang baby.

Be conscious also of your position when breastfeeding. Usually kasi naka slouch tayo pag nagpapadede lalo pag nakaupo.  Mag stretch lang kayo lagi after each BF session to maintain your posture.  And have some time for exercise pa din kahit super busy na tayo sa bahay.   Wag nyo akong tularan kasi I now have scoliosis kasi napag walang bahala ko posture ko and didn't get enough exercise then.  Hindi pa po enough your household chores for our exercise sabi ng PT ko.

Sori napahaba reply ko but I hope I've contributed something in this thread.  =)

To increase your milk, try to nurse/pump on a regular schedule, ideally every 3 hours, at most every 6 hours.  The stimulation will ensure that your suppyl will not go down.  To make it easier for you to nurse in public, try investing in nursingwear.  Wearing breastfeeding clothes will allow you to nurse discreetly, comfortably, and in style in public.  Try the beautiful nursing clothes from PLUME.  They offer fashionable nursingwear (the clothes are so fab they don't look like nursingwear at all).

Their website is www.plumeshop.multiply.com.  Check it out. It might be of help to you.

Goodluck.

Post by: keih liwanag on January 29, 2009, 07:22:01 pm
sis grammy.. share ko lang coz wala rin ako breastmilk before and i wrote this and submitted it to medical city's breastfeeding month contest. i knew it won't be chosen because it's not a successful breastfeeding story, but all i wanted that time was to give the mommies out there (like you) a lift of faith and optimism even without having milk. and for those na baka nadedepress na for having no milk at all.

here... it was entitled MYTHBUSTER MOM

In time of my baby’s arrival, I was so looking forward to the time when I get to hold her in my arms and breastfeed her. That was the peak of my expectation when I can truly say, ‘I really am a mom.’ Being the organized and schemer person that I am, I planned every detail of it. From buying breast pumps to breast creams, I was ready.

It was saddening because when she came, I have no milk to offer her. Several tries have happened. Even her pediatrician helped me, but to our demise, I am milk-less. The hospital, being a breastfeeding advocate, didn’t allow me to have formula milk inside their premises. The pediatrician had to convey a secret instruction that I can buy a formula milk, just so my baby can drink milk already since that was our third day. The doctor clearly stated that it is just a substitute, I have to try harder to produce milk. Who am I to disagree? If there was someone right there and then to be asked who wanted to be a promoter of breastfeeding, I’d be the first one to volunteer.

I was only able to provide her milk for two weeks. And it stopped.

I then, was able to substantiate that some things, or myths rather, are meant to be busted.

First myth. That women with big breasts produce more milk. I, ever since I was in high school, was born (or should I say blessed), with above-average size of breasts. But would you believe that my sis in law sends me then her breast milk (via breast milk plastics in coleman) all the way from Bulacan?

Second myth. That having no breast milk is hereditary. My mom as well didn’t produce it when she was a new mom to me and my brother.

Third myth. That if you had all kinds of soup, from clams to tinola with lots of malunggay leaves (Sajina), you’ll produce more milk. Believe me, I have tried everything!

Fourth myth. That you need to be at your outmost relaxed state for your milk to flow. I was. I listened to soft music, prayed, and my hubby massages my back and shoulders because he too believed that it can help.

I am not on the verge of proving that these things are falsehoods. Some I am aware of have medical explanations. All I am saying and wanted to share with this story of mine is that when you really have worked hard to produce milk, and if you have exerted extra effort in providing this one of the important things your child can receive from you, yet there’s not enough, then you are just probably one of those who are not meant for this. Do not be stressed. Do not blame yourself. God has other plan for you. Do not waste your time thinking ‘what went wrong,’ or ‘what else should I have tried.’ Just spend all your time taking care of your new angel. ;-) It surely is more than a blessing. And indeed worth thanking for.

The ad implies, ‘share the joys you have experienced because you have chosen to give your baby the GOLD standard.’ I may not have given my daughter too much gold, but I promised her that I will give her happiness beyond gold - - until my body can and until my heart beats.

i feel really guilty na mix-fed yung baby ko and i always try to give mt baby more breastmilk pero konti lang, to the point we are all stressed about it ( me, the baby and hubby). im was so convinced na breastmilk lang si baby, but unfortunately konti lang lumabas. the lack of breast milk even contributed to my post-partum depression, i was too hard on myself.
sobra kasi, i feel that there is a double standard over those moms who give breastmilk vs. those to give formula. im still trying to do my best to breast fed my baby habang there's milk pa.

Hello Grammy......

habang nasa house ka, padedehin mo ng padedehin baby mo...kasi the more na nag breastfeed ka, the more na mag produce ng milk ang breast mo, baka kasi pagdating mo busog na si baby sa formula,kaya wala na rin syang ganang uminom sa milk mo.... kelangan soup talaga with malunggay and papaya...tinolang manok baga!!!heheehe
more on ginataang gulay,basta masabaw...more milk intake

Factor din ang stress but not the main reason siguro,basta tell her yaya na wag muna padedehin if pauwi kana to make it sure na gutom sya pagdating mo.... it will help talaga

hhaaayy it's been awhile since i read the posts here but anyway, better late than never.  I've been breastfeeding my baby since day 1. she's 6mos now & there were times na nawawalan me & when i recall the things i drink & eat, here are my proven lists why i lose my milk:

* drinking soda / iced tea and/or coffee (i just tried once dahil sobrang natakam ako & for the whole day i produced limited milk)

*lack of sleep

*not drinking enough water

*stress or exhaustion. when i clean the house i need to do it fast so i could rest before the next feeding time.

*not enough carbs, fruits & veggies

so i always drink water every 30mins to 1hour interval.  i don't like drinking soup but still my milk production is good, i just keep myself hydrated.  i limit intake of sodas, iced tea & i don't drink coffee (i'm not much of a coffee lover anyway.)  eating cereals helps me a lot & try drinking a cup of sustagen premium with 4teaspoon of instant oatmeals twice a day.  at first, when my baby was born till she reached 1month i ate a bowl of oatmeal cooked in 1 tetrapak of milk & with slice fruits everyday for breakfast.  and my breast was indeed leaking with milk! now since my breast is stimulated to produce milk i drink the cup of sustagen premium w/ oatmeal before going to bed at night.  hope this helps you mommy grammy

1. exclusive breastfeed mo lang ang baby, if you're staying in your house lang
2. kung lalabas ka naman ng bahay or going office, mag-pump ka ng milk mo then i-store mo lang sa ref
3. if you are working, magdala ka ng pump sa office, then every 4 hours, mag pump ka
4. drink lots of fluid pati mga soups
5. for support, drink ka ng PRO-LACTA (ground malunggay leaves yan in capsule form), inform your OB para alam niya that you are taking it

enjoy breastfeeding! ;D

anong sakit, sis? if i may ask.

kasi sabi, kahit may sakit si mommy it is still ok and safe na mag breastfeed pero depende na rin siguro sa sakit.

Its safe to bfeed kahit may fever or colds  :) basta wag lang yung other sickness na you have to take antibiotics. Pansin ko mas malakas resistensya ni baby pag bfeed, lahat kasi kami nagka colds dito sa house, I thought mahawa si baby. But I was wrong, hindi sya nahawa.

Try eating oats everyday, it helps increase milk.

hi mommy! i had same prob before. what i did was for 2 days, weekend ata yun, my baby and i just had the time together, playing, sleeping, and bfeeding him every after 3 to 4 hours. i de-stressed myself and just had lazy 2 days. in short, give yourself a rest and continue on bfeeding your baby. since you got sick, i think you minimize the times nursing your baby baka nga kasi mahawa sya kaya siguro umunti din. now that youre ok na, i hope magaling ka na, be healthy and take a good rest. your body needs to rejuvenate itself. tanggalin din ang stress. minsan yun ang culprit :)

sis, try massaging your breasts, this can help in stimulating the ducts producing the milk... kapag sumasakit check mo if the baby is latched on properly... what i do to achieve a perfect latch is i prepare my babies na my back is leaned against pillows tapos when they are perfectly latched on na... i slide na lang to my side (i do this pag antok na din ako hehe...)

i also drink lots of fluids and lahat may sabaw din... wag mo masyado pump milk mo unless you will have to leave the baby kasi you have work or errands outside the house... remember sis, the suckling of the baby is a big stimulator so our breasts will produce more milk for them :)

Hi mommies,
I gave birth to our son who has a cleft lip two months ago and while still pregnant with him, I was very convinced to breastfeed him exclusively. Although success rate on breastfeeding cleft babies is very slim, nag-attempt pa rin ako and I'm one of the unsuccessful cleft mommies. So nagpa-pump na lang ako ng breastmilk ko. Kaya lang compared sa first child ko, ang konti ng milk ko. I average only 6 oz per day. Hindi pa rin ako naggi-give up and will soon return to work. Gusto ko sanang mag-increase yung milk production ko. Any tricts, suggestions or success experiences that anyone could share? Thanks

hi mommy! congrats on your new baby! pareho tayo, pinagbubuntis ko pa lang baby ko very convinced ako na mag breastfeed kasi hindi ako nag breastfeed sa 1st baby ko...nanghinayang ako... eniweis, to increase your breastmilk try massaging ur breast before you pump and i-hot compress mo. tapos drink lots of fluids - water, soups, juice. kumain ka din ng malunggay. siguro mga 2 weeks after i gave birth, lahat ng ulam ko may malunggay, kahit na hindi nilalagyan ng malunggay, nilalagyan ko ng malunggay. hehe or you can take natalac or prolacta. as much as possible dapat di ka stressed, kasi it can decrease your milk. na-experience ko na din un na may araw na pag super stressed ako, konti lang un milk na lumalabas. rest ka lang if you can.

or...you can check other threads, yung mga contributions ng ibang mommies regarding how to increase breastmilk...

enjoy!

Thanks sis for your tips. try ko yung massage at hot compress. So far, I've tried eating as many malunggay I can, lahat na ata ng food na pwedeng lagyan ng malunggay nilagyan na. Feeling ko nga pati yung mga nakikikain ng same ulam na kinakain ko, maglalactate na rin eh. I'm also drinking natalac at I express milk as regular as I can. Problem ko, sobrang nocturnal ng baby ko at puyat na puyat ako. Probably it could also be the reason bakit konti lang milk ko. Kasi sa first born ko, yung 6 oz, isang pump ko lang yun eh. Eh mas nagsisipag akong mag pump ngayon, tsaka pa konti. Thanks for the tips again.

Hi, thanks for the advice. Problem ko lactose intolerant ako so cannot drink milk. I just take calcium supplement para hindi bumagsak ang calcium level ng body ko while expressing breastmilk. With soup naman, palagi na kaming may soup at may malunggay leaves pa, konti pa rin. Lumalakas na consumption ng baby ko yung supply ko the same pa rin. I can only do 6 oz per day. I just wish I could express 6 oz per session.

Pump ka lang po lagi ng breastmilk. In my case, nagti-take po ako ng Natalac. Pati Pro-lacta (may nakuha akong mga free samples). Taking warm bath or shower also helps. Minsan sa shower pa lang po tumutulo na yung milk.

Then I just bought an double electric pump ng Playtex. Sabi kc nakakarami daw ng breastmilk ang electric pump kysa sa manual. Ngayon ko pa lang ita-try. And advisable daw po yun sa mga working moms. Will let you know po kung totoo!

Thanks sis for the tips, naka-Natalac na rin po ako. Ang problem ko, ang konti ng milk ng nilalabas ng right breast ko, halos hindi siguro makaka 1 oz. Inggit naman ako kung nakaka 5 oz ka with Natalac..... :(  May factor din kaya na manual pump ginagamit ko? ang mahal kasi ng electric pump.

Hi mommy che, i've been breastfeeding my baby exclusively for 8months now.  eating oatmeal helps a lot.  i don't often eat viands with soup yet i have good production of milk because of oatmeal.  you can try eating oatmeal with fruits, cook it with milk or in my case i just put 4teaspoons of oatmeal to 5tablespoons of sustagen premium every night.  avoid spicy foods, sodas, iced tea. drink plenty of water & juices but more on water.  eat lots of veggies & fruits. dont stress yourself & take lots of sleep if you can.  i noticed if i lack sleep i don't produce milk well.  before i took Prolacta for 2 weeks to help lang but now i don't need it. hope this helps

they said breastfeeding is like the law of supply and demand daw. the more often you pump daw, mas madami rin ang milk production mo. i think this is also right. i tried this, madalas kong pinapadede si baby like every 2 hours.

if u do pump, i know it would be inconvenient but as often as you can talaga. try mo din daw yung malunggay. sabaw na may malunggay. goodluck!
Title: Re: Problem about breastmilk
Post by: mOmMy nI yAnCeE on March 31, 2009, 03:53:04 pm
sis grammy.. share ko lang coz wala rin ako breastmilk before and i wrote this and submitted it to medical city's breastfeeding month contest. i knew it won't be chosen because it's not a successful breastfeeding story, but all i wanted that time was to give the mommies out there (like you) a lift of faith and optimism even without having milk. and for those na baka nadedepress na for having no milk at all.

here... it was entitled MYTHBUSTER MOM

In time of my baby’s arrival, I was so looking forward to the time when I get to hold her in my arms and breastfeed her. That was the peak of my expectation when I can truly say, ‘I really am a mom.’ Being the organized and schemer person that I am, I planned every detail of it. From buying breast pumps to breast creams, I was ready.

It was saddening because when she came, I have no milk to offer her. Several tries have happened. Even her pediatrician helped me, but to our demise, I am milk-less. The hospital, being a breastfeeding advocate, didn’t allow me to have formula milk inside their premises. The pediatrician had to convey a secret instruction that I can buy a formula milk, just so my baby can drink milk already since that was our third day. The doctor clearly stated that it is just a substitute, I have to try harder to produce milk. Who am I to disagree? If there was someone right there and then to be asked who wanted to be a promoter of breastfeeding, I’d be the first one to volunteer.

I was only able to provide her milk for two weeks. And it stopped.

I then, was able to substantiate that some things, or myths rather, are meant to be busted.

First myth. That women with big breasts produce more milk. I, ever since I was in high school, was born (or should I say blessed), with above-average size of breasts. But would you believe that my sis in law sends me then her breast milk (via breast milk plastics in coleman) all the way from Bulacan?

Second myth. That having no breast milk is hereditary. My mom as well didn’t produce it when she was a new mom to me and my brother.

Third myth. That if you had all kinds of soup, from clams to tinola with lots of malunggay leaves (Sajina), you’ll produce more milk. Believe me, I have tried everything!

Fourth myth. That you need to be at your outmost relaxed state for your milk to flow. I was. I listened to soft music, prayed, and my hubby massages my back and shoulders because he too believed that it can help.

I am not on the verge of proving that these things are falsehoods. Some I am aware of have medical explanations. All I am saying and wanted to share with this story of mine is that when you really have worked hard to produce milk, and if you have exerted extra effort in providing this one of the important things your child can receive from you, yet there’s not enough, then you are just probably one of those who are not meant for this. Do not be stressed. Do not blame yourself. God has other plan for you. Do not waste your time thinking ‘what went wrong,’ or ‘what else should I have tried.’ Just spend all your time taking care of your new angel. ;-) It surely is more than a blessing. And indeed worth thanking for.

The ad implies, ‘share the joys you have experienced because you have chosen to give your baby the GOLD standard.’ I may not have given my daughter too much gold, but I promised her that I will give her happiness beyond gold - - until my body can and until my heart beats.

hi. mga mommies.
problema ko din ang milk productions right now.
2weeks na after i gave birth and patak patak lang talaga ang nakukuha ko sa breast pump. Pero during the first week dumami naman ang gatas ko as in. sobrang hard ang breast ko and kahit hindi ipump tulo ng tulo ang milk. sadly hindi ako allowed mag breastfeed during my first week dahil i was taking medicine kc until manganak ako may UTI pa din ako. during the first week nahirapan talaga ko dahil ang sakit sakit ng breast ko dahil sa dami ng milk. hindi ako nag ppump noon kc ang sama sama talaga sa pakiramdam. until nung time na, na mag breast feed na ako, aun patak patak na lang. ngaun gustong gusto ko mag berast feed kaya kahit sobrang sakit mag pump nag bbreast pump ako. nag ttake na din ako ng natalac at malunggay. sabi kc nila sobrang masustansya ang milk ng mommy. gusto ko din maging healthy sya. un mga babies kc na nakikita ko na bfeed sobrang tataba eh. gusto ko sana maging mataba din si baby at healthy. until now im still praying hard para mag produce ng milk. this site really help me through out my pregnancy. and mommy keih thanks sa pag share mo ng article na toh. it helps.

Hi everyone! Just wanna have some advise, almost 2mos. pa lang kasi akong nagpapa-breastfeed and yet wala ng makuha si baby though i used to eat soup dishes naman (esp. w/ malunggay  :)). I'm a working mom kaya mixed feeding niya. Bakit po kaya nawala milk ko? could it be possibly caused by stress? :(
Please advise.
Thanks.
I've exclusively breastfeeding my eight month baby now and here are my observations why sometimes i don't produce my milk:

1. not drinking too much water.

2. drinking too much iced tea, soda or coffee.

3. lack of sleep

4. eating spicy foods

5. stress or exhaustion even simply cleaning the house lessens my production of milk

6. skipping meals.

on the other hand, here are ways that makes my production well:

1.  at least 6 to 8 hours of sleep & i sleep at least before 10pm

2.  i drink 1 glass of water after every feeding'

3.  i limit drinking iced tea, and no soda & coffee. if i crave for coffee once a month only & decaf.

4.  i eat oatmeal at least 2x a week or drink 1 cup of Sustagen Premium with 4teaspoon full of oatmeal.

5.  should i do household chores i make sure it's not too strenuous

6.  i don;t often eat with soup but instead i make sure i'm well hydrated

hope this helps

i just delivered my baby and kakalabas ko alng from the hosp. nasstress ako sa mom ko na magbreastfedd agad. well, gsto ko naman talaga prob is yung nipple ko is kinda flat, so hirap si baby isuck at hindi niya masubo ng buo. hirap na rin ako kasi masakit na breasts ko dahil siguro hindi pa makalabas yung gatas.

earlier today, try ko pa rin talaga ipa-suck kay baby then naexcite ako dahil may nakta nkong liquid sa kanya.  :)  at maya't maya na sya mag nagddrip. hindi pa rin kaya ni baby sken. but still, pinapractice ko rin sya. i have this medela breast pump na gift ng sis ko. ginamit ko sya para lang lumabas yung nipple ko. nakakakuha naman ng gatas, 1oz.  pero grabe ang sakit. kasi nga sguro bago pa at first time ever! naiiyak ako sa sakit talaga. feeling ko nga lalagnatin ako. a few hours back ni-try ko ulit, pero humina na yung batt, so hindi na makakuha mshado ng milk. ayoko gamitin yung adapter niya, natatakot akong baka makakuryente sken  :-\

i just delivered my baby and kakalabas ko alng from the hosp. nasstress ako sa mom ko na magbreastfedd agad. well, gsto ko naman talaga prob is yung nipple ko is kinda flat, so hirap si baby isuck at hindi niya masubo ng buo. hirap na rin ako kasi masakit na breasts ko dahil siguro hindi pa makalabas yung gatas.

earlier today, try ko pa rin talaga ipa-suck kay baby then naexcite ako dahil may nakta nkong liquid sa kanya.  :)  at maya't maya na sya mag nagddrip. hindi pa rin kaya ni baby sken. but still, pinapractice ko rin sya. i have this medela breast pump na gift ng sis ko. ginamit ko sya para lang lumabas yung nipple ko. nakakakuha naman ng gatas, 1oz.  pero grabe ang sakit. kasi nga sguro bago pa at first time ever! naiiyak ako sa sakit talaga. feeling ko nga lalagnatin ako. a few hours back ni-try ko ulit, pero humina na yung batt, so hindi na makakuha mshado ng milk. ayoko gamitin yung adapter niya, natatakot akong baka makakuryente sken  :-\

endure the pain mommy, ako nga inverted pa yung nipple na isa, pero eventually mawawala den. yung nurse noon hinihimas pa likod ko kasi namimilipit ako sa sakit. i suggest keep your baby sucking, para masanay sya & mastimulate yung breastmilk mo since the saliva is vital to the production of milk.  Now she's 8months & still exclusively breastfed :D

hi po meron po ata na nipple na pwede ikabit kung inverted nipple para ma suck ni baby.. tapos yung sa gatas po pag nag pa breast feed dapat constant sya so pag nag work dapat at least twice a day ma pump mo sya kase yung sucking ang nag papadami ng gatas.. sakin po kase ganun habang pinapadede ko sya na madalas lalong dumami yung gatas... nung una 1 oz lang na pump ko tas habang tumatagal nakaka 4 oz nako :)

a hot compress will help loosen up clogged milk ducts. tapos drink malunggay tablets (i buy mine from health express) 3x/day.  also try to pump every 2 hours.  the more you pump, the more milk your breast will produce.  kailangan  lang mag tiyaga but don't give up!  breastmilk is really the best milk there is!

Thanks for the tip, parang nagawa ko na rin yung hot compress and malunggay tablets eh. Now I'm down to just 5 oz per day. Pero hindi pa rin ako give up, wish ko lang talaga na madagdagan kasi ang takaw na ng baby ko. Eh I'm back to work so I can't express as often as I used to. But thanks for these...

since baby can't suck which is the best stimulator to produce more milk, i advice that you start massaging your breast. increase your fluid intake & all the soups you need. buy natalac or fenugreek which will also help in increasing your milk supply

yes mommy. nagnatalac ako before. kinabukasan ko manganak, malakas na ang milk ko kaagad. :) natalac is a capsule-form of malunggay. :)

also took natalac.  mukhang ok naman sya.  there was a time na stop ako take tapos parang humina supply ko. i dunno kung psychological lang.  during that time, konti lang din drink ko fluids. so i can't say for sure if it was due to lack of fluids or not taking natalac.

hay..susubukan ko yan..sa akin naman..
my production of milk is okay..
in fact, i breastfed my baby for 8months (that is from birth until now)
what my problem is, that im obliged to do mixed feeding..
because by november 9, i will go back to school to study and finish my last sem..
unfortunately, i was not with my baby for 8 to 10 hrs..
and that is monday to saturday..
from november to march
the thing / question that bothered me is
"paano kung mawala ang gatas ko?"

its a big deal for me because
1st---as a mom, im so proud to see my growing baby everyday knowing that the nourishment he is having for 8 months is from me..
2nd---my rule of thumb of being a mother is to breastfeed until i still have a breastmilk..
3nd---financial..
syempre not after the graduation may trabaho agad..
board exam muna..
di naman sigurado ang pagpasa..
hay.. sana di mawala breastmilk ko..
para pagkagraduate libre ulit sa gatas..
  ;D
and nakukuha pa ni baby yung right nutrient made for him..
 :D

Post by: momy weng on November 04, 2009, 12:43:13 pm
Let me share my experience @zairen for me, ok lang din na mag mix feeding as long as naibibigay mo kay baby yung milk mo...
When i gave birth up to now eh nag breast feeding ako while giving her formula at the same time...SA una mahirap kasi working mom din ako.
 Alam mo bang twang tuwa ako dahil 7months exclusive breast feed si baby at super dami talaga ng milk ko..palagi akong umiinon ng natalac capsule twice a day plus intake of more fluids like water,eating oatmeal at lahat ng ulam ko eh may sabaw at malungay leaves, fresh fruits is important din. KAya nga sa sobrang dami ng milk ko eh namimigay ako ng milk with my ka officemate which is hindi nagpa breast feed kasi inverted nipple sya..From mon-fri during ofc break time nag pu pump ako ng milk, every day i collect more or less 30 oz of my milk (morning,afternoon,snack time,nyt time at mid morning) grabe ang lick ng milk ko pag na late ako ng uwi sa bahay kasi alanganin mag pump specially pag nasa mall...Kaya nga lagi kong baon sa coleman bag ko ang pang pump ko, ilang bottles or plastic milk storage para in case of emergency na mag lick sya eh ready na mga things ko. Believe me, when my baby is only 1 month old syempre panay tulog yan at bihira or konti pa pag intake ng milk niya. I start  collecting my pumped milk until mag 3 months sya naka   150 pcs of my milk and stored it on my freezer.
Yes,  i bought nanny milk storage 1 box contain 50pcs plastic storage- first i collect tig 2oz each plastic
2nd box- i collect tig 3 oz
and the last one box - i collect 6oz b milk
I collect my milk first 2 box nung time na naka leave pa ako so before i go back to work may mga naka stored milk na agad ako.  I remember naka travelled pa ako sa MAcau 4 days(company outing namin last March) without my baby, basta may storage milk lang ako sa house. Then nakapag uwi din ako ng pumped milk inside sa plastic storage mga 10 plastic with tig 4-6 oz of milk.
Pero nung pumapasok na ako sa ofc, syempre dahil sometimes stress sa work, and due to sleepy hours hindi makatulog or maka rest at pagod sa biyahe when i go home...nabbawasan talaga ang milk ko, so i got worried kaya when my baby turn exactly 6 months i introduce na agad sa kanya un solid foods like cereals so everytime na magkukulang ang milk ko pinapakain na lang namin sya ng foods.
Pero ngayon happy narin ako kahit nag wo work ako no worry at all kay baby dahil  malakas sya kumain ng foods may formula intake sya na 4-8 oz a day plus brestfeed parin sya when i got home, lab parin niya milk ko.

Title: Re: diminishing breastmilk quantity
Post by: cutie_enzo on December 30, 2009, 07:34:31 am
mommy, tyagain mo lang....the best way to increase your milk production is to breastfeed your baby frequently. It's a simple rule of supply and demand. While you breastfeed your baby, your body release special hormones that tell your brain to produce milk because your baby needs it.  So yun pagsuck ni baby ang stimulant for your body to produce more milk.

Kaya humihina talaga if our baby is having milk formula as a supplement.

Padedehin mo sya every 2hrs...makita mo, dadami ang milk mo. Pa-prescribed ka rin sa OB mo ng lactation pills para makatulong din...and kain ka ng meron sabaw like tinola and nilaga.

Lahat ng matanda suggest dahon ng malunggay. Isasama mo sya sa kahit anong sabaw na lulutuin mo. Ginawa ko to. At maganda nga kasi madami gatas ko. Mag 8 months na baby ko pure breastfeed pa rin ako. Pero hindi ko na sya madalas gawin. Pag feeling ko na lang na hindi na ganun kalakas nagmamalunggay ako ulit. I drink din yung Anmum Lacta twice a day. Iwas din ako sa mga fried na foods.

tapos ang problem pa eh, although hindi naman problem talaga eh, pag breastfeed ko na si baby eh, nakakatulog agad.. si baby kasi takaw sa tulog pag umaga..

ayaw ko naman siya buhatin pag madaling araw tapos antok na antok ako, baka kasi mabitawan ko siya..

i still breastfeed her multiple times in a day before she takes her naps and sleeps at night. parang pampatulog na lang halos. she's eating semi solids na din naman. pero I'm still concerned kasi diba dapat babies her age should get enough milk.

Hi to all Mommies!

I am breastfeeding my son since he was 2 months old but only at daytime co'z my work schedule is at night shift (11pm-8am). However, I noticed lately nagreduced ang milk supply ko. And I am so worried about it because my baby won't drink milk formula at daytime co'z nakasanayan na niya breastmilk sya pag daytime. Naaawa ako sa baby ko kasi ang gaan-gaan niya na ngayon. I think the other thing that contributed sa pagreduced lalo ng milk supply ko is because hindi maganda ang tulog ko since I gave birth to my son. Stress ako lagi at sometimes hindi din ako makakain ng ulam na may sabaw.

Any advise you can share para mag-increase ang milk supply ko? I want to breastfeed my baby till he turns 1 year old if possible. Please help! thanks:-)

Drink lots of water
Include in your regular diet:
malunggay
talbos ng ampalaya
masabaw na mga ulam
- try out mo malunggay or talbos ng amalaya sa tinolang manok, or tinolang isda.

If you have access to a ref in your place of work - consider manually expressing your breastmilk into baby bottles and store these in your office ref while you are at work, then bring that home to your baby each and every day.  All you need is a breast pump - or better yet, two of those, so that you can sterilize them regularly.  I know that one Italian brand of baby products (I bought mine at SM that time) have a breast pump model that connects directly to a baby bottle such that as you pump the breast pump, the milk flows down to the baby bottle.  Do the breast pump every two or three hours - about the same interval that your baby would demand your breast milk.

drink a lot of water din or fluids every after feeding. akala mo lang na di nabubusog si baby mo...bka naman matagal yung interval ng feedings kaya nagugutom si baby...malunggay  is the best. also yung tahong and other shells produces milk.

hi sis,
sabi ob ko yung breastfeeding mental din yan think positive, and also law of supply and demand. the more your baby feeds from you exclusively you'll continue to produce milk. what i did since i gave birth i breastfed every 2 hours mula recovery room  palang yun kahit CS ako then i'd visit the NICU every 2 hrs noon. when i got home from hospital, nagdemand feeding na ako. my baby feeds every 1 1/2-2 hrs, then sometimes 3 or 3 1/2 hrs in the night. What I did, i drink lots of water 10-12 glasses a day ako kahit nung di pa ko buntis coz i don't take juices or softdrinks. i drink anmum also. i don't get to eat soup everyday but my first week everyday ako may soup. i try to incorporate malunggay in what we eat.  totoo rin yung after a warm shower/bath lalakas milk flow mo. it helps also to massage your breast while feeding your baby. you can try researching din sa lactation or breastfeeding websites. doon ko lang nabasa yung warm shower & massaging helps.
Title: Re: What are the other ways to increase Breastmilk supply?
Post by: shopgal on April 12, 2010, 11:33:51 am
hi! you should manually express milk in the office, not only to increase supply but to maintain it as well.  i read somewhere that to increase milk supply, you should latch/pump milk every 2 hours. to maintain supply, pump/latch every 3 hours.  if you want to stop milk from flowing, kahit 4-5 hours na lang. breastfeeding works on supply and demand. so kung long hours na hindi nilalabas yung milk, our body thinks that it does not have to produce anymore. tiyaga and commitment talaga for working moms.  good thing we have the legal right to take "lactation" breaks now. hooray! hehe

Lucky naman ng ibang mommies. I gave birth 1 month ago. tried malungay soup, natalac, massage and everything. pero wala pang 1 onze talaga ang lumalabas. ayaw na ng baby ko mag suck, that's why we gave him formula na. 
is there still a chance makahabol ako? I use breastpump everyday pero talagang konti lang.
may mga mommies ba na wala masyado milk production? thanks.

Hi! Me too I had a hard time to pump before kasi super konto up to 2 oz lang. I took Natalac, medyo dumami pero konti lang. According to my pedia, ipa-suck mo lang ng ipasuck kay baby. Kasi pag hindi na-suck isipin ng brain naten dead si baby,so our breast don't produce milk anymore. And that's what I did dumami din milk ko,principle ng supply and demand lang yan. My problem now, ayaw na rin magdede sa bote ng 3months old baby ko kahit water kelangan pa idropper.

Hello mommies.  Newbie here and a first-time mommy. Breastmilk is also my problem and my frustration. 

My daughter is 2 months now.  I'm also suUuper frustrated kasi konti lang ang breastmilk supply ko... less than 1 oz (for two breasts na yun ah).  Ayaw din mag-breastfeed ni baby kasi super konti lang nakukuha niya kaya at her age, formula-fed na sya :( 

I don't want to give up rin.. thanks sa tips, will try Natalac.. sana it will work for me

hi mommies,  naging problem ko din yan nung mga 2mos old pa lang si marcus, di sya tumataba kaya kahit na gusto ko exclusive breastfeeding sya eh humingi na ko sa pedia ng magandang formula.. pero di ko tinigil breastfeeding kasi alam ko the best pa rin un para kay baby.. pag-uwi ko galing ng ofc, tigil na formula si baby, sa akin na lang sya dede hanggang sa umaga, ganun din pag weekends.. bibigyan ko lang sya ng formula kapag umiiyak sya kasi ibig sabihin kulang na yung breastmilk ko... luckily, hanggang ngaun na 9months na si marcus, breastfeeding pa rin ako ;)

mommies, eat healthy.. malunggay and tahong effective un.. drink lots of fluids esp water.. try nyo rin natalac, it works for me.. saka mas maganda pa rin kung si baby ang mag-suck kaysa pump, mas magaling sila kumuha ng milk ;)

hello mommies!! 3 weeks old pa lang baby ko and so far I'm still exclusively breastfeeding. So far super nalulunod ako sa malunggay, I boil it with a little honey tas I drink that ok naman. Plus soup and water, so far ok naman milk production ko. I also eat oysters etc pero minsan lang kasi di ko siya gusto.

One week na rin ako nagpupump I bought an electric pump kasi ok din magpa increase ng supply if you pump between feedings. So far through pumping nagincrease na yung milk ko from 1oz per breast ngayon 2oz na siya per breast.

Meron ding Sun Angel malunggay tablets so far ito pinakamadaming malunggay content, 500 mg per tablet.

Good luck sa ating nursing moms!! Sana tumagal pagbreastfeed natin sa mga babies natin!!! :D

Mommies question -  Gaano katagal ang isang session at ilang beses sa isang araw? Ako kasi mga 2 mins malakas tapos I stop pag wala na. Pinaka marami ko atang nakuha is 1 oz, per breast. But my baby and I are only on our 4th week so hopefully mag increase pa sya. I'm using Elmo Manual breastpump, trial run lang kasi, hehe. Eventually I'll upgrade. :D

Sis i suggest na u ask advise from gynae, there are tablets or medication para dumami ang gatas i was given script before pero i did not take kc i decided to go for bottlefed, many mums i have heard did it... in fact meron din to dry up the milk kc super engorged ang boobs ko.

It's a common problem. Askko lang, after birth pinadede mo ba agd sau si baby o sa bottle muna?baka nagka nipple confusion sya. Nararamdaman mo ba na naninigas dede mo?pag ganon may milk ka. dapat hugasan mo maligamgam na tubig breast mo then massage it gently. eat a lot drink a lot. pag ayaw dedehin ni baby tapos feeling mo mabigat na boobs mo then pump it and store your milk sa ref para pag gising ni baby may dedehin sya.pg nababawasan milk the more magproproduce nnman kaya mas dumadami milk mo. hope this hepls. :)

Post by: dedski on June 21, 2010, 02:34:58 pm
1. breastfeed, breastfeed and breastfeed, if you can't breastfeed every 4 hrs, you have to pump para ma-stimulate parin ang milk production. kasi yung sucking reflex ng baby ang nagpapadami ng milk.
2. drink lots of fluids
3. take supplement capsules like natalac
4. eating malunggay and tahong helps daw

mommy leilatoto from my experience, i used breast pump. like every three hours talaga, walang skip, i would pump until wala na matira... eventually dadami yan... think supply and demand... wag ka lang magdepend sa pag breastfeed, dapat you pump talaga until maubos laman ng boobs mo...

drinking lots of fluid (milk + oatmeal at night) helps.

eating oatmeal also helps sa pag increase ng milk supply ko. tsaka kahit madaling araw after feeding ng baby ko, i make sure na may biscuit ako kakainin. then plenty of water and enough rest. tapos massage mo din dibdib mo para ma-stimulate yung milk production. na try ko mag natalac pero i find na mas effective yung habit na ginagawa ko, hope it may help ;)

sis dadami din yan.. basta pagdating mo galing office offer mo kaagad breast mo. ako i was pumping sa office din. until now im breastfeeding pero mixed feeding na ako. hindi na ako nakakapagpump sa dami ng gawa sa office. suggest ko gawin mong 3x a day yung NATALAC and kain ka mga shells. limit your coffee intake.

Yung wide neck kunin mo,para at least di sya maconfuse sa breast mo at sa nipple ng bottle.I bought nga yung tommee tipee isa daw yun sa pinaka malapit sa breast ng momy.. Ako din before pinasuck ko kay hubby siguro mga 2 days nung nakauwi kami sa house kasi wala lumalabas na milk.pero sandali lang kasi baka c hubby na makakuha ng sustansya ng colostrum,ayun sabi niya may lumabas daw kelangan lang mastimulate. kaya dampian mo ng warm cloth breast mo tapos massage it para magflow yung baradong milk ducts sa breast.
Title: Re: Paano ba dumami breastmilk?
Post by: mommynikyle on June 30, 2010, 10:29:23 pm
breastfeed, breastfeed, breastfeed!

mommy baka naman hindi dahil konti yun milk na nakukuha niya kaya sya umiiyak. you'll never know naman kasi kung konti o madami yun nainom niya kasi di mo naman alam kung ilang oz na nainom niya. try mo different position kasi baka hindi lang sya comfortable.

kapag nag bottle feed ka na kasi baka umayaw na sya sayo that would lead to decrease milk supply. yung sucking mechanism kasi ni baby iba sa pump, mas effective pa din mag labas ng milk si baby sa breast mo. siguro feed him more frequently, wag mo na antayin na umiyak si baby bago mo sya buhatin at mag feed. usually every 2 to 3 hrs gutom sya so expect mo na mag feed sya. tignan mo din yun signs like pag nag open sya ng mouth parati at naghahanap ng masusuck. unahan mo na before pa umiyak.

if inom ka kasi ng natalac tapos hindi rin mag feed si baby sayo or hindi ka mag pump mag engorge lang yun breast at hindi nailabas baka mag lead sa paghinto ng milk supply.

Tama po sinabi nila. Aside sa eating lots of malunggay leaves (ihalo sa kung ano-ano ulam or soup), kain lang ng kain and ofcourse lots of fluids.
 
@ ipa-dede ke hubby  ;D ..hmm never tried.
 
Working mom din po ako.Regular 8 hours ang trabaho at gabi na kung makauwi.But til now, nagpapa-breast feed parin ako sa kanya. Luckily, meron pa lumalabas. I have never tried to pump these boobies when I returned to work. Basta sinundan ko lang po ang advise ng OB ko na "2 weeks before ka bumalik sa trabaho, mag-alot ka ng specific sked na magpapa-breastfeed ka na". So I did.
 To illustrate, 7pm kasi ang dating ko sa bahay galing work. So nung 2 weeks, bago ako bumalik ng trabaho, hindi ko na sya pinapa-dede the whole day.Basta fixed ng 7pm ganun.
 
Medyo masakit kasi gustong-gustong lumabas na ng gatas-pero Ok lang basta me lampin lang hehe..
 
Ayun effective naman. Til now, like what I have said breastfeed parin po ako.pampatulog niya kasi eh. pero nagde-dede din sya sa bote when I am not around.

hi mommies,

i'm a soon-to-be-mommy and i'm planning on exclusively breastfeeding my baby and i hope it works fine. i'm a teen mom also and i am a nutrition and dietetics student that's why i really want to breastfeed my baby because of it's health benefits both for me and my baby. i've also done a lot of research and reading so that i would gain more knowledge about breastfeeding aside from the one that was being taught to us in school.

our milk supply arrives on the 3rd day after our delivery usually mas matagal pa pag first time mom and mnsan earlier if this your 2nd or 3rd pregnancy/baby. but don't worry mommies kasi kahit wala pa yung milk supply,meron naman yung colostrum it's the yellowish substance that contain the nutrients our baby needs. ito ang main ingredient ng milk natin for the first ten days medyo konti nga lang ang naiinom na milk ni baby at first few weeks pero we should not be discouraged to stop breastfeeding. we should feed our babies by demand para magincrease din ang milk supply,pumping breastmilk can also help para magincrease ang milk supply.

aside from drinking lots of water and having a healthy diet we also need support from our family,relatives and peers when it comes to breastfeeding dont be discouraged and dont give up easily on breastfeeding your babies. we should also be confident in breastfeeding our babies kasi it helps in increasing our supply.

hope this helps po sa mga mommies who want to breastfeed their babies.

basta po be confident while breastfeeding your baby it really helps in increasing our milk supply.

ako kase 3 months lang nag breastfeed with xander eh.
Pero i noticed na mas marami milk ko kapag hydrated ako.
Actually parang buntis ka rin, lagi kang gutom.   :o
I suggest if kumakain ka naman gulay, kain ka ng malunggay.Kami noon almost lahat ng ulam na pwede nilalagyan namin ng malunggay, like tinola, nilaga.medyo weird lang lasa sa una, di kase ako mahilig sa gulay eh. so my OB suggested natalac 2x a day.
Saka drink ka rin ng low fat milk,para madami kang stored na calcium.
try to avoid yung alcoholic drinks and smoking ofcourse.
also no o din yung junk foods and lots of sweets, parang na hyper kase si baby nun. hehe

ok na source na to,.. hehe..

puwede ba mga momsis eh malunggay tablets? minsan kasi feeling ko nagkakaron na ng shortage yung milk ko.. bagal ko magproduce ng milk.. hmmmmmmmm....

yung face ng baby ko now, almost 30% namumula.. hindi naman siya maumbok.. kala namin baka kagat lang.. kaso medyo madami.. saka ayun nga hindi maumbok.. sa sarili kong pananaw, baka allergic siya sa kinain naming tinolang manok.. two days kasi namin inulam ng hubby ko yun.. naglilihi ata si hubby.. yun lagi request.. ;) kagabi lang namin napansin yung redness ng mukha ni baby... so now, di na kami nagulam manok.. wala kasi pedia ni baby may seminar.. kaya la pa kami mapagtanungan..

regarding naman kay sis mixx,
sabi pedia ni baby, drink a lot of water..
take vitamins.. ok lang din daw kung pre-natal vitamins tatake..
then eat soupy meals...
sabi naman ng sister ko,
don't drink cold water kasi nakakatuyo ng milk..
drink milk.. kahit powdered milk basta mainit daw.. kahit milo..
wag mag softdrinks, alak, kape.... ( lungkot ng buhay  :'( )
wag daw tataas kamay kasi nakakatuyo din ng milk  :-X
atleast 16 glasses according sa internet.. pero puwede namang substitute yung soupy meals nga and fruits para di na magbilang ng glasses of water...
pag napapansin mo na madilaw wiwi mo, ibig sabihin dehydrated ka.. you need to increase drinking water...
kailangan talaga madami water..

kahit lahat yan sinusunod ko,
namumrublema pa din ako sa slow production ng milk ko.. huhu... gusto ko sana kahit 6 months mapabreastfeed ko baby.. impoortante daw un sa development ng brain ni baby..

*ate malunggay (buti nalang may tanim na malunggay lola ko  ;D)
*tapos every dinner parating my tinola and the likes na sabaw sabaw
*cleaned my nipples with lukewarm water, kasi raw baka yung dead skin cells nakakabara sa openings dapat for feeding
*and lastly, my bf tried na dumede kasi pampastimulate daw yun ng flow ng milk and it worked, siya nga ata nakadrink ng colostrum. hay! ::)

i agree with fegloria1954 and shopgal to manually express your milk at office. dapat kasi mailabas mo yung milk maximum na yung 6 hours para di manghina yung milk supply mo. kasi ang mangyayari, the lessen na di ka makapag BF or express, the lessen na yung supply ng milk. also avoid mo na laging ma-engorged yung dibdib mo, kasi magsisimula na yun ng paghina ng milk supply.

if di ka masyado mahilig sa malunggay, you may also eat oatmeal then plenty of water and sabaw talaga para makapag produce ng maraming milk. lessen mo muna yung inom ne caffeined drinks kasi nakakahina din ng supply yun.

di pa naman huli ang lahat, hangga't may little amount pa ng milk na lumalabas sa iyo, kaya pa rin dumami ulit yan.

try mo sa clinic nyo mag express and make sure alam ng boss mo para walang hassle sa work.

good luck  ;)

you can take malunggay capsules or fenugreek. :)

pero mommies, alam ko kapag stressed ka talagang it will affect your supply kahit gano kadami pa kainin mo na pang pa lactate. You should be getting adequate amount of sleep.

Goodluck mommie.

Ako din working mom and I was bf'ing at the same time. Kaso nag wean na ako at exactly 1 yr and 1 wk ni baby -- me butal pa ano. :)

tama sila.. demand at supply ang rule sa breastfeeding kaya wag ka sumuko if u have low milk supply, express to the max!! haha.. ganyan din ako nung una.. at masyadong stressed!! napansin ko nga na pag napaktulog ako ng maayos eh halos sumabog ang milk ko. pero pag pagod, konti lang... avoid mo din mga caffeine.i

i also tried fenugreek capsules available in healthy options.. nakatulong siya kaya lang mhal din mag maintain!! 650 pero 100 caps pero klangan mo kc maconsume ang 3000mg/day so 9 caps a day ata ang nilalaklak ko nuon. pampabukas lang naman daw un ng mga ugat kaya pag ok na milk supply mo, pwede mo na itigil. ngaun ok na milk suplpy ko..  ;)

yung dark beer na try ko din, half cup a day... cervesa negra ba!! kaya lang may debate kc kung may bad effect to kay baby.. pero talagang dumami ang milk ko nun, i dont want to take the risk kaya tinigil ko na..  may nabasa din ako na brewers yeast,sa mercury nabibili at piso lang ata ang isa mganda daw sa milk supply  pero un ang dko naitry kc ok na naman sa fenugreek.. good luck, sana nkatulong ako.

i agree with the other moms.  breast milk production kasi follows the law of supply and demand so if at night walang demand, then tendency talaga ng body mo mag produce ng less milk.  better if you pump every 2 - 3 hours during your shift.  you can leave take home the expressed milk so that your baby can consume this the following day.

my first post though I am not a newbie sa SP, di lang me agad nagpamember.  I breastfed my daughter for 1 year and 9 mo.  Dami na ipin kaya tinigil ko na.  I am a working mom.  I trained my daughter na pag morning may bottled milk sya then pag gabi kay mommy na.  Pag mga 6:30 pm wala pa ko sinusumpong na sya pag nakadede na ok na ulit.  What keeps my milk flowing is continous breastfeeding talaga.  I drink much liquids (anything wag lang softdrinks).  Sabi ng MIL ko ang mga babies daw magaling magsuck ng milk kahit wala ka na magkakaroon ka talaga.

Sa office ako lang ang pinkamatagal na nagbreastfeeding and ilan lang talaga ang nagbreastfeed (too sad).  I always encourage all moms to be na magbreastfeed.  Kasi so far lahat ng kilala kong hindi nakapagbreastfeed for atleast 6 mo., yung baby nakaranas maconfine before the baby turns 1.

hi sis.. i experienced the same dilemma too. ang hina ng milk supply ko nuon.. sabi kc ng mtatanda, mag iinom daw ako ng kape.. which is a big no-no pla.. kc diuretic siya.. dapat mdaming tubig ang inumin.. and lots of rest.. npansin ko kc, sobrang pagod ako nuon, halos walang tulog at pahinga.. pero pag maayos ang tulog ko, wow! ang dami ng milk supply ko..

natry ko kc uminom ng fenugreel seeds na available sa healthy options.. 650 ata 100 caps.. kaya lang u should take 3000mg/day kaya 10 days ko lang ata naubos un.. yan kc ang lumalabas pag nagresearch ako sa net about low milk suplly, so try mo din..
nag work naman kc sakin eh.. ang alam ko kc, pampabukas siya ng mga ugat so, kapag ok na ang milk supply mo, pwede na itigil

baby ko din, sa bote muna pinagatas bgo sakin.. kainis yung hosp na pinanganakan ko.. 2 days ko bgo nhawakan c baby eh wala naman siya diprencya... my pedia says na breastfeed mo muna bgo sa bote para mas hanapin niya ang breast mo kesa sa bote..

ayun, sana nkatulong ako.. =) ;)

question lang po sisses, is it normal na pag meron ka humihina yung supply?  i've noticed kasi na pag meron ako medyo nagdidip yung supply ko.  mas less yung napupump ko compared to usual.  so nag reresort ako sa pagkuha sa freezer stash.  pinapalitan ko na lang pag tapos na and nag normalize na ulit output ko.

Hi sisses!

I use prolacta to help increase my milk supply. Since I started going back to work kasi, I can only express milk 2x a day, so nagkaroon ng slight decrease. I read somewhere na ok din daw ang Nalacta. Although di ko pa rin na-try. Yung fenugreek capsules daw, makes your breastmilk smells like maple syrup daw. I don't lang if it has effects on the baby, kasi baka manibago siya sa smell. Check out this site re fenugreek, http://www.breastfeeding.com/all_about/fenugreek/all_about_fenugreek_side_effects.html

Hope it helps! God bless!

hi mommies, i have q's regarding fenugreek. Do you just take it at birth to jumpstart milk production? Or do you take it daily as a supplement to increase and maintain milk supply? Are there any known side effects to mom and the breastmilk? Is it safe for long term use? To moms taking fenugreek, how long have you been taking it?

TIA!

hi mommy ayaka1217, bigay mo lang kay baby yung breast mo.. i think nasanay na kasi siya sa bottle kaya sa una, hindi niya kukunin yun.. share ko lang yung advise ng aming ninang who is currently getting her lactation consultant certificate:

Quote
It's still possible for your friend 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 friend can log on to LA LECHE LEAGUE and research on relactation.

Hope makatulong.. And don't give up just yet.. Mas madaming benefits for you and your baby when you are breastfeeding. ;) Kung gusto mo ng back-up, you can try one of those malunggay capsules. I am using Prolacta kapag feeling ko konti ang milk ko. Pwede din malunggay tea, pero naubusan kasi ako ng supply nito eh.. Hehe. Malunggay soup is also good. And tahong or talaba.. :)

God bless!

Hi mommies, share ko lang. Yes, there is an EXISTING act for breastfeeding moms out there. REPUBLIC ACT No. 10028 (http://www.lawphil.net/statutes/repacts/ra2010/ra_10028_2010.html) was signed last March 2010 (http://www.philstar.com/Article.aspx?articleid=560792) by former president GMA. Sana lang talaga mas nai-implement siya ng maayos. Like yung BF station for buildings. Kahit dito sa office namin, walang matinong BF station eh. Buti nalang nagagamit ko yung server room namin. Hehe.. :)

As for your concern mommy juvieanne, agree ako sa karamihan.. Hehe.. Nung bumalik din ako sa office, nag-start mag-decrease milk ko kasi limited lang ako nakakapag-pump. Madami kasing ginagawa eh. :( Kaya napilitan akong mag-mixed feeding. Pero nakatulong din sa akin ang malunggay capsule. Prolacta ginagamit ko. Tapos, lots of fluid. Tsaka dapat hindi ka nagugutom. More calories on your diet, kasi nabasa ko dati, calories help in producing breastmilk.:)

For more on increasing milk supply, you may also visit the Breastfeeding Support Group (http://www.smartparenting.com.ph/parentchat/index.php?board=79.0) SP thread. I think, first and foremost din, we should know how does milk production work (http://www.kellymom.com/bf/supply/milkproduction.html) so we'll know how to increase yung production.

Sorry, napahaba. Hehe..;) God bless mommy!

mommy, ako un. my OB gave me motilium when i was discharged from the hospital 4 days postpartum and la pa rin akong milk. i took motilium for 2 days then ang lakas na ng milk ko. pero my OB said to stop lang pag ok na yung milk supply.

this is another link on the domperidone or motilium:

kaso sa US di sya approved for use as galactagogue kasi di pa alam kung me napupunta sa breastmilk. but it worked for me. and i took it again when i felt my milk supply was low. effective nga sya. i only took 1 tablet 3x a day.. then gradually reduce to none pag ok na yung milk supply.

Hi mga mommies!
My baby boy is turning 8 mos. old this December 1. Di na siya nag BF sa akin since 3 mos, old siya.Ewan ko ba, pero pag breast ko na, ayaw niya and nag-aaway na kami   :(. Pero until now, I'm giving him my breastmilk via feeding bottle. Continuous lang ang pumping ko,di pa ako nagmissed kahit one day. I'm a working mom and kahit san ako magpunta dala ko ang pump ko.I've been doing this for 5 mos now, and I'm still grateful kasi kahit di na sa akin nag BF si baby , nabibigay ko pa rin sa kanya ang benefits ng breastmilk. Mix feeding siya pero 1 to 2 bottles lang ang formula, the rest is yung expressed BM ko.na.Right now medyo mahina na yung milk kasi, 2 to 3x a day na lang ako magpump and nagstop na ako ng Natalac. I guessed nasa tiyagaan lang talaga. Magsisipag na ako ulit kasi para naman kay baby yun,babalik pa kaya sa dati yung milk supply ko ?

Mommy inurse mo lang sya lagi and magpump ka 1 hour after nursing. Pump output is not necessarily the same amount as naiinom ni baby. Check kellymom.com for other techniques how to increase milk supply, pwede kasi wrong latch, sleepy baby can affect your milk supply.

hi mommy sarraii!  congratulations on your new born!

feed on demand lang po mommy.  basta gusto ni baby mag nurse, nurse mo lang siya.  tama si yummie mummie that pump output is not necessarily the same amount as nainom ni baby.  babies are more efficient in getting milk from the breasts that any pump available.  also, pwedeng di naman because baby is hungry kaya umiiyak siya.  maraming pwedeng reasons why baby is crying.

Post by: Sarraii on November 30, 2010, 06:52:37 pm
sabi kasi ng pedia ni baby breastfeed daw dapat every 3 hrs so minsan pag ala pa 3hrs umiiyak na si baby ayaw ng mom ko na ifeed ko kaagad si baby. so ok lang na whenever gusto ni baby ifeed ko lang sya?
Title: Re: How to Increase Breastmilk Production
Post by: mummienina on November 30, 2010, 07:12:21 pm
you should feed on demand.. hindi inoorasan. un ang nakakababa ng milk supply. i think ang ibig sabihin ng pedia is hindi lalampas ng 3 hours. say tulog sya, dapat gisingin para dumede pag umabot na 3 hours since last feeding. ganun ang advise ng pedia ko kung tulog si baby, wag hayaang di dumede lampas ng 3 hours.
Title: Re: How to Increase Breastmilk Production
Post by: kulasa on December 07, 2010, 01:28:31 pm
ako din sbi ng pedia ko feed on demand,so maski mahaba tulog ni baby di ko naman sha ginigising..kpag tulog sha tpos puno na yung breasts ko, nagppump na lang ako.aside form that i take 3 capsules of natalac after each meal,so 9 capsules sha a day..i buy it na lang per box na around 800 pesos,100 pieces na sha.also try having halaan soup na may malunggay and drink lots of water.and always think na overflowing yung breasts mo ng milk,kasi ako dti ganun.nstress ako nung nagwork nko konti lang lumalabas sken so iniisip ko habang nagppump ako na marami akong milk and iniisip ko yung baby ko.ayun dumami na sha ulit..=)

Title: Re: How to Increase Breastmilk Production
Post by: mummienina on December 10, 2010, 01:59:05 pm
Usual output ng pump talaga is 1-2 oz. Pero once sanay ka na and may let-down ka during pumping, makakarami ka din. Ang fenugreek or prolacta effective sila basta parating na-eempty yung breast. So padedehin mo lang si baby as oftenas baby wants and if busog pa si baby pero puno na breast mo, pump ka.
Title: Re: How to Increase Breastmilk Production
Post by: kulasa on December 10, 2010, 05:27:12 pm
ako din ganyan nung una 1-2 oz,max na yung 2oz..pero minsan habang nagppump sinasabayan ko ng pageexpress by hand kasi minsan di nkukuha lhat ng pump..pero ngayon madami na sha mga 2-3 oz na sha..i take lots of fluids lang and malunggay capsule and mas madalas na kasi ako magpump,nagseset ako ng target na number of times na dapat makapag pump ako kpag nasa work ako...and yun lang tlaga hwg pa stress and hwg ka mashado maconscious sa dami ng pinupump mo para di ka mapressure..hehe

nung nagsimula ako ako, less than 1 oz lang napupump ko. pinagtatawanan nga ako ng asawa ko sa sobrang konti. pero sabi nila wag mo daw ijudge yung milk supply mo sa dami or konti ng napupump mo.  mas effective pa din daw mag drain ng breasts yung mga babies natin.  ngayon i can express at least 4-6 oz per session.

nagamit mo na ba yung fenugreek capsules? nababasa ko yan pero curious lang ako kung ano difference niya sa natalac or prolacta

actually you don't need to pump if your baby is with you all the time and nurses often. if you are away from your baby, or at work, or pag mahaba tulog and engorged na yung breasts, you have to pump. the breasts will never run out of milk as long as milk is needed. see this link for more info: http://www.askdrsears.com/html/2/t022800.asp (http://www.askdrsears.com/html/2/t022800.asp)

Post by: kiddiedoc on December 23, 2010, 02:42:05 pm
Mommies I really want to breastfed my 4 days old baby, problem is I don't have milk when I gave birth, I latch as frequent as I could pero wala pa din, so I resorted to formula milk temporarily and took supplements, luckily now at 4 days may milk na ako, problem is baby doesn't want to suck on my breast anymore, nasanay na sa nipple ng feeding bottle, so what I'm doing now is to pump, my worry now is baka magdiminish yung milk supply, any advice mga mommies para dumami ang breastmilk even if its expressed? Thank you so much:-)

Tyaga lang...
Title: Re: EBF moms needs help!
Post by: mummienina on December 23, 2010, 03:21:43 pm
Hi mommy kiddiedoc! That's how i started din.. Tagal dumating ng milk ko kay i resorted to formula the first few days.
What did to take baby off the bottle was i nursed her first direct, then if she does not seem satisfied, i give the bottle after.
Another technique which i read sa breastfeeding book, is to use nipple shield. Since medyo nasanay na baby mo feel ng silicone teat, hindi sya gaano manibago sa texture ng nipple shield.
Another useful technique also - which can be used when babies have nursing strike - you hold baby to you while both of you are bare. You topless, baby in her nappy. Sleep with her or hold her like that until she gets familiar with your scent. You can sit reclined or on bed with pillows on your back, hold baby chest to chest, her head near your breast. Soon she will try to move towards your breast, assist her to latch.
I tried this one when baby refused to nurse nung around 4 mos sya. I did this every afternoon during her nap time, we slept together. Effective sya.
Hope these tips help!
By the way, congrats to you new baby! Enjoy breastfeeding!

Ganyan din ako dati.  sabi nila wala daw akong milk kaya nag bottle feed din ako.  pero persistent lang ako na kahit sinasabi nila na wala akong gatas pinapasuso ko lang sya.  hindi mawawala ang milk supply mo kung patuloy mo lang sya pinapadede seio.  i think nipple confused lang si bebe mo. nangyari din yan sa akin pero ginawa ko, ineliminate ko talaga ang bottles hanggang sa natuto sya ulit mag suck sa akin.  go lang ng go mommy.  maganda magpa breastfeed.

'ello po.. ako naman, not allowed magbreastfeed kasi nagttake ako ng antifungal medication dahil sa spores na nagkaroon ako for more than 1 month.. masama pa nun, kung how many days na nagtake ka nung gamot, equal lang siya sa days na dapat mong hintayin bago ka makapagpadede ulet kasi yung effect nung nagsstay sa katawan and masama siya sa pregnant kaya siguro may possibility na makaapekto siya sa bfeed baby.. tinetake ko na yun for more than 2 weeks, and goodthing, may gatas pa 'ko, kaso baka maurungan na ako ng tuluyan :( bale, 1yr and 4 mos na siya, more than a month na akong hindi nagpapadede sa kanya pero i make sure na hindi nagbblock ang ducts ko kaso lang.... pakunti na siya ng pakunti, takot ako na baka hindi na mahintay yung 10 days na paghihintay ko bago ulet siya mapadede, sayang pa man din dahil kahit bottle fed na siya eh gusto niya pa rin dumede sakin..

I put my breastmilk sa bottle and feed it to her. so now, we are mixed feeding. I tried giving her my breast but she refuses na kaya I turned to the bottles. Is there still a way for my baby to prefer direct feeding than feeding from the bottleS? everytime I give her my breast, nagwawala na sya and iyak na ng iyak kaya nililipat ko agad sa bottle. I also had 2 sessions na with a lactation consultant, she's a great help on increasing my milk supply pero hanggang dun lang...

hi mommy trins,
baka naman hindi properly latched si baby .. u can searched www.kellymom.com on how to properly latch our babies para sau uli sya dumede..
hope this wud help..
Title: Re: How to Increase Breastmilk Production
Post by: mummienina on March 03, 2011, 03:12:48 pm
mommy trins, you can also try re-acquainting your baby to your breasts by holding her while both of you are undressed - you topless, baby in her nappy. She will smell your breast and find it instinctively. You do this when you put her to sleep and sleep with her. Ito din kasi ginagawa pag nagnursing strike... See nursing strike in kellymom.com. I did this before, every afternoon when my baby naps, we sleep together. After about a week, ok na uli.

And may nipple preference na siguro si baby mo to artificial teats kaya ayaw niya dumede sayo. Try using nipple shield to transition from bottle to breast. Para di sya manibago sa texture, me mafeel pa rin syang similar texture sa artificial teats. Then remove mo nalang yung shield after some time.

Hope this helps.

I've found this here on SP re Breastfeeding FAQs which enlightened me and motivated me to continue breastfeeding. Been bfeeding my baby boy exclusively for 5 weeks now. There are times na parang nawawalan ako ng motivation pag nakikita kong parang di satisfied si baby. But this one helped me:

"Malunggay is a galactagogue. It is a breastfeeding tool that may aid a breastfeeding mom in increasing her milk supply. However, it can only aid you in increasing your supply if you still follow the supply and demand rule. Meaning, you breastfeed your baby directly as often as you can. No amount or type of malunggay supplements can increase your supply if you limit the times you put your baby to your breast."

hi mommies!  ;D

dont know if its really applicable sa lahat ng nag-bbf ha,share ko lang po.

 I noticed na mas kaunti yung nakukuha sakin ni baby if im pagod.puyat at di masyado inom ng water.
but if im well rested like nakakatulog sa tanghali,well hydrated at hindi stressed,mas ok milk supply ko.

natalac also helps.. i take yung natalac FEFOL..yung may iron,folate, at vitamin b..mas expensive lang ng konti sa plain natalac pero its worth it naman.


Title: Re: How to Increase Breastmilk Production
Post by: mummienina on April 30, 2011, 11:03:06 am
yung hormones kasi responsible for milk production mas active during sleep, kaya mas maganda and malakas supply pag well-rested and with good sleep ang mommy. Kaya din parating advice sa mga books and articles na sleep when your baby sleeps.

Xandernok, how much yung natalac fefol? How many times a day iinumin? yung prolacta kasi parang la na effect sa akin.

Mommies, tanong ko lang, yung boobs ko kasi i feel parang always soft na. Feeling ko always empty na sya. Dati kasi nafifeel ko sya napupuno or medyo matigas angd heavy pag lapit na feeding time. Ngayon hindi na. Pero when i try to express manually, yung konting press, me lumalabas naman and minsan nagspray pa yung milk. Humina na kaya supply ko?
Title: Re: How to Increase Breastmilk Production
Post by: xandernok on April 30, 2011, 01:04:36 pm
hi mommy n,

i cant recall if natalac fefol is 12++ or 14++..
and medyo mahirap din bumili nyan,kase lagi out of stock sa mga mercury.
so pag bumibili ako maramihan na. :)

Once a day ko lang tinatake yung natalac fefol eh. pero pag plain natalac lang gamit ko, twice a day ko siya tine-take.
I havent asked my OB though,lagi ko kase nakakalimutan! haha

reg your question about kung humina yung milk supply mo, it depends if you're direct feeding baby,and kung anong age na ni baby..the older they get,the more milk they consume. nung first month kase si hailey,lagi rin puno and matigas breast ko eh,pero now bihira na lang...lakas na kase dumede eh. pag nag-pump ako ng milk ,nauubos na niya yung 4oz.. she's only 3 months by the way.
try mo kaya i-pump so you would know kung marami pa.. pag kase direct feeding hindi mo masukat kung ilang oz. nadede ni baby eh.hehe

pero its so true,nakaka frustrate if you feel na parang umuunti na yung milk mo,and mayat-maya na dumedede si baby kase gutom agad.i also feel worried and so praning na baka hindi na enough yun milk ko .  :(

from kellymom.com:

IS BABY GETTING ENOUGH? -- QUICK REFERENCE CARD
~~~ BIRTH to 6 WEEKS ~~~
WEIGHT GAIN:
If baby is gaining well on mom’s milk alone, then baby is getting enough. A 5-7% weight loss during the first 3-4 days after birth is normal. Baby should regain birth weight by 2 weeks. Once mom’s milk comes in, average weight gain is 6 oz/week. If these goals are not met, call your lactation consultant. More on weight gain.
WET DIAPERS: 5 - 6+ sopping wet diapers per day (after 1st week).
Expect one wet diaper on day one, increasing to 5-6 by one week. To feel what a sufficiently wet diaper is like, pour 3 tablespoons (45 mL) of water into a clean diaper (if baby wets more often, then the amount of urine per diaper may be less). Urine should be pale and mild smelling.
DIRTY DIAPERS: 3 – 4+ dirty diapers per day (after day 4).
Stools should be yellow (no meconium) by day 5 and the size of a US quarter (2.5 cm) or larger. The normal stool of a breastfed baby is usually yellow and is loose (soft to watery, may be seedy or curdy). More on infant stooling.
OTHER POSITIVE SIGNS: After a feeding, mom’s breast feels softer and baby seems reasonably content. Baby is alert, active and meeting developmental milestones.

IS BABY GETTING ENOUGH? -- QUICK REFERENCE CARD
~~~ AFTER 6 WEEKS ~~~
WEIGHT GAIN:
If baby is gaining well on mom’s milk alone, then baby is getting enough. More on weight gain. Average weight gain for breastfed babies:
0 - 4 mo   6 oz /week   4 - 6 mo   4 - 5 oz/week   6 - 12 mo   2 - 4 oz/week
WET DIAPERS: 4 - 5+ sopping wet diapers per day.
To feel what a sufficiently wet diaper is like, pour 4-6 tablespoons (60-90 mL) of water into a clean diaper (if baby wets more often, then the amount of urine per diaper may be less). Diapers may be wetter in the morning, especially with older babies. Urine should be pale and mild smelling.
DIRTY DIAPERS: Depends on your child.
Number ranges from many per day to one every 7 – 10+ days. After 4 - 6 weeks, some babies switch to an infrequent stooling pattern. This is normal as long as baby is gaining well, and stools are soft and profuse if several days have passed. More on infant stooling.
OTHER POSITIVE SIGNS: After a feeding, mom’s breast feels softer and baby seems reasonably content. Baby is alert, active and meeting developmental milestones.

Pero same din, when I manually pump mega squirt pa rin siya, and naghuhurt pa rin pag nag leletdown ako.. But I think nagdidip na supply ko. :(

nabasa ko sa kellymom.com, normal lang daw na breasts feel soft or empty specially if nag-adjust na yung supply to baby's demand. Pero nakakapraning pa rin. E now pa naman, puro laro lang gawa ng baby ko, pati when nursing naglalaro. Di ko lam if nakakakuha ng milk.

Bukas magweigh-in kami. Sana malaki ang weight gain.
 
Nag-oats na rin ako for breakfast. I have to buy prolacta or natalac pa. Pero parang walang effect na sa akin, pansin ko lang.

happy and relieved! :) i saw the WHO chart. and so happy na okay lang ang weight and length gain ng baby ko. worried kc ako everytime may nagsasabi na ang baby ko is so thin. i think i'll print another copy and give it to my baby's pedia pra di na niya iinsist na itigil ko na ang pag-bbf.  hehe... ;D

and i'll try the natalac fefol na sabi ni mommy xandernok baka mas effective kesa sa plain natalac. ;)

thanks mga mommies!  :)

I'm breastfeeding my daughter until now that she's two years old. as in exclusive breastfeeding lang.. Ang natutunan ko during my first few weeks nursing her, dapat talaga everytime na gising si baby, gutom man o hindi pinapasuso.. kasi iba pag yung baby yung nagsstimulate.. tabi ko na nga sya matulog para kahit hatinggabi hindi ko na kailangan bumangon.. grabe nun.. dahil sa dalas kong magpadede, punong puno yung boobs ko ng gatas.. kaya siguro hanggang ngayon nagpapadede pa rin ako.. it really paid off yung sacrifice na mag exclusive breastfeeding... sobrang close namin ng baby ko ngayon tapos ang dali niya pumick up ng kahit anong ituro namin sa kanya...

hi mamachi -- its not advisable to pump as early as two weeks kasi konti lang talaga makukuha mo. the first 6 weeks are intended for you to build up your milk supply. in short, bfeed ka 24/7. dont feel frustrated if you're getting that much milk lang when u pump.  if you can run errands in less than 3 hours then do it pero if you cant, im thinking maybe you can bring ur baby with u?

Hello mga mommies.. I am new to this forum.. nakita ko kasi to while ngsesearch ako ng answer sa dilemma ko. my baby is now 4mos. old. tas recently npansin ko d na nageengorge dede ko saka lagi nang malambot. Iyakin n si baby kasi less milk na naiinom niya. Paless ng paless talaga. naawa ako sa baby ko, kea pala di na sya mahimbing matulog kasi gutom.. lagi niya tuloy nasusuck kamay niya sa gutom siguro. Nafefeel ko naman minsan na kumikirot dede ko kasi ngsstimulate siya ng milk. Pro kulang sya eh. I've tried drinking malunggay ( pinakuluan na dahon ng malunggay) mixed with powder milk. Ska sa mga nabasa ko sa inyo na mga med na iniinom, I bought natalac. Sana bumalik na sa dati milk supply ko.

Totoo ba talaga yun na 1 week kang nkataas ang kamay natutulog nwawala na talaga breastmilk supply mo? Yun kasi sabi ng biyenan ko. D ko din naman alam un kasi ngaun lang niya sinabi kung kelan less n supply.

Ano po masasabi nio? Sswitch ko na po ba sya into formula? Direct feeding ako sa kanya kea pg umiinom sya water s bottle d na marunong magsip. Working mom ako pero work ko homebased lang..

Nawawalan b talaga supply ng milk? :-[

Post by: Kimps08 on September 06, 2011, 09:28:30 pm
hi mommy kceres. welcome to the forum and kudos to you for breastfeeding your baby.

madaming dahilan kung bakit umiiyak si baby at yung gutom isa lang sa mga dahilan na un. babies like to suck too which explains minsan na if you remove your breasts, umiiyak sila. nagiging comfort zone na din kasi nila un.  another thing is that, when you breastfeed, you breastfeed by demand kasi breastmilk are easily digested compared to formula milk. so they may need to drink from you more often.

as for you question about yung one week na nakataas yung kamay mo mawawalan ka ng milk supply. that is not true. the only time that you lose your milk supply is if you stop breastfeeding or if you skip one meal and decide to introduce formula milk.  think of it as a law of supply and demand. the more you direct feed, the more you are telling your body to produce milk.

If you're working at home and you're able to direct feed your baby...dont stop.  and it doesnt mean that if you're breasts are not engorged, wala ka na milk. the last thing you want to have is an engorged breasts kasi if your breasts are engorged then it is signaling your body to produce less milk...and we dont want that.

happy breastfeeding!!!  ;D

mommy kceres , dont consider or ever tried mag mixed feding jan na tuluyan mawawala supply mo.. exclusive breastfeeding is really a tough job ,, sobra lalao sa woring moms, in my case 13mos na si baby ko but still exclusive bfed pa din siya,, there are times na feeling ko mahina supply normal lang yun minsan naiinsecure ako sa iba baby na sobra taba compared sa baby ko na hindi ganun kaaba pero siksik at matangkad naisip ko minsan to give her formula pero tru network support group SP moms, babymama, the chronicles of nursing mom, lumakas uli loob ko ang now i consider myself as a hardcore when it comes to breastfeeding,,, ang laki tipid din, i just invest to to a good double elec. breast pump pero kung SAH mom ka lang okey naman mas lalakas supply kung directfeeding,,
all advice given by mommy kimps were all true and  i agree..

just keep it up 6mos onward puwede mo na sya pakainin ng solid plus breastmilk kaya wag ka susuko

Title: weening issues
Post by: JesLie15 on October 23, 2011, 02:57:53 am


Hi everyone!

I just want to ask anyone who can lend a suggestion or an opinion.My youngest is already 1yr and almost 2 mos old and I'm proud to say from the day he was born until Sept 24 he was drinking solely breast milk. Then on Sept 25, I had mastitis. So the doctor gave me anti-biotics and have advised me to stop feeding from the affected breast, so since I would not be able to provide enough milk for him coming from 1 breast only, we started mixed feeding him. It's very hard because even if he's asleep he'd know that what's given to him is not my milk. After the mastitis passed, i started feeding again from both breast. And sad to say, until today my milk supply have not been the same again. And I'm having weening issues, somewhat like separation anxiety. I'm not yet ready to let go of breast feeding my baby. So I was wondering if anyone there knows a sure shot way of increasing my milk supply again. I've tried drinking malunggay capsules already and it did not work. It's hard to just take a good rest since I work in a very stressful environment. Can somebody please help?!...or should I just start letting go? :(

wow, ganda naman ng thread na ito. nakakainggit ang daming exclusive breastfeeding. mix feeding kasi ako since nag 1 month si baby kasi parang di enough yung milk ko. lalo na that time parang ang hina ko pa kumain kasi kakapanganak lang at lagi puyat.

meron po ba dito umiinom ng Morelac? yun po kasi iniinom ko, nung wala ng morelac sa mercury, bumili natalac hubby ko, pero sabi ko parang mas ok yung morelac kasi clear yung capsule. super effective po ba yung fenugreek? gusto ko talaga dumami milk ko, 3 bottles sa 24hrs ang baby ko ngayon, tas the rest breastfeed na. 5months na po sya.

Hello Mommies!
 

Bago lang po ako dito. :)
What do you mean by BF on demand? Kasi ako wait ko lang maghanap si baby saka ko siya i-BF.
I gave birth last Oct 17, nakatikim siya ng Formula since wala akong milk nung first few days ko, after that direct feeding na si baby lagi. May concern ako, sa Dec 5-9, out of the country ako, parang hindi ko ata kaya mag store ng supply ng breastmilk ko for the 5 days na wala ako.. Kasi everytime na mag pump ako, 1-2oz lang nakukuha ko :( Sa isang araw maximum na ang 4oz na mapump ko. I don't know the brand of the pump, pero basta Barney yung box niya hehe. Ano kaya pwede ko gawin?
Title: Re: How to Increase Breastmilk Production
Post by: ch0c0_holic on November 11, 2011, 01:52:34 pm
As early as now, mag pump ka mommy in between feedings para makaipon ka ng milk na iiwanan mo kay baby. tyagaan lang. ganito ang ginawa ko nung nag out of the country din ako last month:

1.) pump at 6am
2.) shower, bfast, feed baby before leaving the house
3.) pump at 9:30 am, 11:30am, 2:3pm and 4:30pm at work
4.) pump immediately when i get home around 7-7:30pm
5.) feed baby directly
6.) feed baby again before goin to sleep
7.) pump again at 10:30pm
8.) baby feeds 2-3 times from 10pm til 6am but i still wake up around 2 or 3am (if kaya) to pump again.

ganyan ako katyaga para makapag iwan ng breastmilk for baby :)

dunno if it has been said already since i havent done backreading yet, my neighbour taught me to brush my breast from top of the breast consecutively, all from top. para raw dumami ang gatas talaga, & another from my kapitbahay also is to "itapat ang breast" sa tabo na may tubig & alugin heheh for milk production din yun kase yun ang ginagawa niya and effective naman sa kanila..

luckily for me, what I did is to take malunggay capsule & after ive given birth, lahat ng ulam ko may sabaw tsaka malunggay so talagang may milk naman, what saddened me is I only breastfed my baby for 1 month due to going back to work. (OT Mods sensya!)

Title: Re: How to Increase Breastmilk Production
Post by: jhenbreak on December 14, 2011, 12:43:04 am
Sis hijanica01, ang advice sa akin ng lactation consultants ko noon, kapag nagsugat daw ang nipples, wag raw pahiran ng kahit anong cream, breast milk lang din daw ipahid ko panggamot.
 
Ii hired lactation consultants after I gave birth to teach me well on breastfeeding.  I breastfed my baby every two hours, actually, I was pumping my milk, at exactly every 2 hours nga kasi hungry si baby. I thought I wouldn't have much milk kasi my mom and my cousins didn't have much, but luckily I had plenty.

My baby drank purely breast milk for 6 months. I apply warm compress muna on both of my breasts para matunaw yung namuong milk. Then, while pumping one breast, may nakasahod sa kabilang breast para hindi masayang yung tumutulong milk. I pump as often as possible para magdeliver ng message yung breast ko sa brain ko na in-demand yung milk ko. I was able to pump 9 ounce of milk every 3-4 hours, sabi nga nila pang-twins daw yung milk supply ko. Ina-adjust ko na lang yung pumping intervals habang lumalaki na si baby; from every 2 hrs, naging every 3-4 hrs, then every 6 hrs, then every 8 hrs, hanggang sa when I was about to stop every 12 hrs to once a day na lang till kusa siyang magstop. I take 1 malunggay capsule a day lang. Then I eat anything pero my lola told me not to drink milo kasi daw nakakahina ng milk production, sinunod ko na rin para sure kahit na hindi talaga ako sure kung totoo nga, hehe!

No stress, no crying, positive thoughts, more on thinking of my baby while pumping, mas nai-stimulate yung breast ko to produce more milk. Stress and crying daw affect milk production sabi ng consultants ko. One lesson I have learned sa seminar na na-attendan ko: Baby + Breast + Brain = Breastmilk.

Title: Re: How to Increase Breastmilk Production
Post by: working_girl88 on December 14, 2011, 10:28:09 am
sis hijanica01: siguro rest mo muna yung breast mo, use breast pump muna siguro.. mali nga yung ginawa ko eh. nung nagkaron ng sugat yung nipples ko, binigyan ko sya ng formula kase 2nd day pa lang ni baby may konting blood na sa nipples ko kaya natakot ako na baka makain ni baby yung blood ko. hay.. sayang tas eto medyo mahina yung milk ko kase hindi masyadong nastimulate yung breast ko. this is just my POV sis. hope this helps.  :)

^Ako sis I started with mixed feeding, pero ngayon Exclusive Breastfeeding na ko! Grabe,Akala ko forever mixed feeding na ko. Thanks to SP talaga, the support group really helped me! May times na feeling ko mahina milk ko, tapos pag nagpump ako onti lang nakukuha ko..Pero to think na hindi naman nagrereklamo baby ko at satisfied siya pag direct-fed siya, meaning Ok talaga ang supply ng milk ko. Hindi na rin ako nakakapag take ng malunggay capsules, plus I eat everything that is served dito sa bahay..

Mommy trinity_ata, philips avent manual breast pump gamit ko. Pero I suggest try mo medela kasi yun ginagamit sa hospitals. Hassle yung avent kasi it has 8 pcs, so idi-disassemble at i-aassemble mo yun every after pump para linisin. And there is this small part sa pump na madaling masira, though hey provide extra, kung lagi ka nagpapump, mauubos mo yung extras na yun, and the pmp is useless without that tiny white valve as they call it. Ngayon mas okay na buy ng electric pump kasi mas convenient din.  ;)

Hi Mommies!

I just want to share how I am increasing my breast milk production.  :) Since I gave birth on December 9, 2011, I've been eating lactation cookies by mommytreats. I've been exclusively breast feeding ever since.  ;D

mga sis ask ko lang did you ever have any problems regarding allergy on breastmilk? my pedia told me kasi if i dont follow a strict diet(no dairy, nuts and poultry prods) its ok to continue bf, but if i cant stop myself from eating those then my LO will suffer... he's colicky and had reflux already  :-[> symptoms also were red skin rashes, worse comes to worst he will suffer from lung problems when he gets old  :(... my LO nga pala has cow's milk allergy and pedia gave NAN HW1. Hopefully i'll find brave answers here who continued bf despite those circumstances  :-\

@chardonnay:  hi sis, i don't think mag sstop naman yung breastmilk pag nag stop eating lactation cookies.  kasi yung friend ko, nag order lang siya for a week supply then after nun hindi na siya umorder ulit kasi daw madami pa naman breastmilk niya. exclusive din siya nag bbreast feed ngayon.  :) medyo pricey nga lang din.

haluan na lang ang mga ulam natin ng fresh malunggay to supplement breast milk production.  ;D

Title: Re: How to Increase Breastmilk Production
Post by: ericamm on January 06, 2012, 11:57:19 pm
^hello sis, ano gamit mong pump?

based sa mga nabasa ko, as much as possible more than twice ka sana makapagpump.. Double the hardwork talaga pag pumping para ma-maintain yung malakas na milk supply..yun din yung nabasa ko sa guide ng medela. Naku, easier said than done talaga, wish ko lang ma-maintain ko din ang milk supply ko pag back to work na ko.

dati I was also taking malunggay capsules, ramdam ko naman na mas malakas milk supply ko nun kasi lagi tumutulo yung milk ko. Ngayon I stopped na, pero ok pa din naman kasi direct BFing ako, I don't know lang para sa mga nagpa-pump, ang alam ko lang dapat talaga madalas ka magexpress.:)

update ko lang mga sis, fenugreek works like a wonder for me. I was worried before kasi from average 12-15oz /day napa-pump ko it went down drastically to 6-9oz, 3 pumping sessions na yun. Then I took fenugreek  2-4caps a day, it went back to 12-15oz/day nakukuha ko, then I stopped drinking it ulit bumaba ulit supply ko, lalo na naging twice a day na lang pag pump ko. Im taking at least 2caps ulit ngayon everyday.

Title: Re: How to Increase Breastmilk Production
Post by: Casie on March 13, 2012, 08:43:02 am
When did you buy po? Is it really effective? How many days ka dapat muna mag-drink bago lumakas ulit yung milk?
Title: Re: How to Increase Breastmilk Production
Post by: happybroomstick on March 13, 2012, 10:16:27 am
^makiki-sagot na din :) took fenugreek tablets from Healthy Options din. One capsule everyday lang and on the third day I noticed na mas creamier yung milk ko. Kung dumami, I cannot say kasi direct feeding ako so hindi name-measure. From my readings and advice ng pedia, yung supply is affected ng demand so again, kung lesser na ang times ng pag-pump, mas may chance na mag-decrease ang milk supply. :)
Title: Re: How to Increase Breastmilk Production
Post by: jeuno on March 14, 2012, 12:19:14 pm
@cassie - yes sis, effective sya sakin. I drink 2 caps after lunch and sometimes i'll drink another 1 in the evening. Since twice a day na lang ako sa office nakakapag pump, nababawasan supply ko. Pero nung uminom ako Fenugreek nag increase ng mga 3oz-5oz yung napa-pump ko.

@happybroomstick - oo sis depende talaga sa supply and demand. purpose lang naman ng paginom ko is para ma maximize ko yung pwede ko ma pump pag nasa office ako. pero pag sa house direct feeding pa rin ako. It's the best pa rin para ma stimulate yung milk production.
Title: Re: How to Increase Breastmilk Production

^yup, glad to know more and more moms are striving na ituloy-ituloy ang pagbigay ng breastmilk sa babies nila :) ako naman hindi ko kinaya ang fenugreek. i hate the fact na it affects the smell of urine and sweat. stick na lang ako sa Natalac capsules, water, and soup :)
Title: Re: How to Increase Breastmilk Production
Post by: jeuno on March 15, 2012, 03:00:46 pm
^Actually amoy maple syrup yung fenugreek e, kaya nga lang ang strong masyado ng amoy niya, naiiwan kahit sa kamay. Nasanay naman na ko. Yung Natalac sis everyday ka umiinom? and ilang caps?
Title: Re: How to Increase Breastmilk Production
Post by: happybroomstick on March 15, 2012, 10:08:51 pm
^1 capsule a day lang. direct feeding kasi since i am a sahm so feed on demand naman kaya i have no problems with supply. i noticed lang mas effective and fenugreek than natalac kasi agad-agad sa fenugreek nakita ko difference sa quality ng milk.

To increase your milk supply.
Pump CONSISTENTLY and ON TIME!

Its like you trick your body into producing more milk.  If you pump often at REGULAR intervals, alam ng katawan mo that you need more milk!

You also need to eat and drink a LOT!! :)

Also, think HAPPY THOUGHTS when you are pumping! 
Nega and Stress leads to slow/minimal let down..
Title: Re: How to Increase Breastmilk Production
Post by: jeuno on March 30, 2012, 03:59:52 pm
^correct sis, talagang nakaka apekto yung stress sa let down. kapag pagod na ko sa work tapos nagpump ako, ayaw lumabas. minsan magleletdown after 15-20mins. I don't have much time pa naman to pump. kaya minsan pag puyat at pagod ako pumasok, for sure wala ako maiuuwi milk kay baby

mga sis tips naman o,
nagdip yung supply ko,hirap na ko maka3oz man lang,pinagsasama ko pa napump ko from left and right breasts para maka 1 bottle good for one feeding ni baby..working mom ako so worried na ko dahil 5 bottles na lang ang nakastore sa freezer ko.

nagtatake ako ng moringa caps pero wala na atang effect sakin.uminom ako kagabi 2 caps bago matulog and kanina pagpump ko 2oz lang!nakupo! may effect kaya na  nagswitch ako to Milo from Ovaltine these past weeks?

im thinking of buying fenugreek now, isang klase lang ba yun? what brand should i buy? hayz,nakakatakot,ayoko pa tumigil from breastfeeding, 1 year na ko exclusive.

Hi Mommies!

@mommy she

Have you heard about galactagouges? These are natural food products that helps increase your milk supply. There's this bakeshop that sells lactation cookies for P150 per dozen and they come in 3 yummy varieties. You can order them from Crazy Bakes. You can place your order through text or just call them at 0916-5518744.Natural malunggay also helps! I've also heard about breast massage to increase milk supply. I'll be taking some classes soon and will make sure to share what Ive learned with you.

Good luck with breastfeeding your little one :)

ano po ba best way para dumami gatas sa breast ng asawa ko help po... kulang kasi gatas niya for our baby.. salamat ng marami for answering/replying
Title: Re: Mother's Milk
Post by: MomiAnn on January 07, 2015, 10:09:15 am
Wow! Hi ronaldbestdad - i was quite surprised na isang "daddy" ang mag post ng topic about breastfeeding, pero this is really good kasi you seemed to be a hands-on dad because of this.  I am really not an expert in this matter, pero because I believed in the benefits of breastfeeding sinikap ko talaga magpa-breastfeed, and successfully I was able to do so with my first child for 2 1/2  years and am planning to breastfeed for my 2nd baby - I am 6 mos preggy at the moment.

Eto mga ginawa ko to ensure adequate breastmilk flow, with the generous advice of my child's pedia na nag-push talaga sa akin magpa-breastfeed.  Since I am working then, yung first 2 months na maternity leave ko exclusi ve breastfeeding ang ginawa ko, yung 1st week ni baby may kasamang formula milk pero sabi ng pedia i-stop ko daw formula at mag pa-breastfeed lang daw ako ng magpa-breastfeed anytime gusto ni baby, nangatwiran pa nga ako kay "Doctora" na kulang breastmilk ko pero ang sabi niya maliit lang daw bituka ni baby at maliit lang din ang capacity to "eat" thus hindi kailangan sobra sobrang milk ang ipa-inom.  Kailangan nga lang ng tyaga at puyatan talaga - kasi pag formula milk pinainom mo usually 2-3 hours kaya ni baby before mag ask ulit ng milk, pero pag breastmilk after an hour uungot ulit ng gatas.  lalo sa gabi halos every hour I am awake to breastfeed.  Then when I returned to work, una manual breastpump ang binili ko pero hirap makakuha ng gatas, then my reliable pedia once again advised me to use electric breastpump to ensure continous ang milk supply ko kahit matagal na oras hindi makapag pa-breastfeed, and it really worked.  naipapainom ko kay baby yung expressed milk ko thru the elec breastpump at nakapagbreastfeed ako for 2 1/2 years kahit working mom ako.

Masabaw na pagkain din is really good para dumami ang supply ng milk, and of course the ever reliable "Malunggay".

Hope this helps :)

Hi ronaldbestdad... momiann is right. Dapat din po hindi stressed ang mommy kasi nakakabawas ng milk.  Eat healthy foods lalo na masabaw.lots and lots of water.some mommies are taking lactation supplements and foods(lactation cookies) to boost their milk supply. My 8th months baby is still breastfed up to now. The best po talaga ang breastmilk. Marami benefits na makukuha si baby pati din si mommy.

Wow hanga naman ako sayo.. good job! Wala pa akong baby 7 months preggo palang ako pero ang dami ko nang nireresearch at binabasa about sa breastfeeding. Sobrang nakakatulong po daw ang mga masasabaw na food saka syempre malunggay. Pero ang pinaka importante daw ay magtiwala si Mommy sa kakayanan ng katawan niya mah breast feed. Palagi din po daw dapat nakasuso si baby para mastimulate ang milk production. Wala pong masnakakatulong kungdi ang sarili. Yung iba nga hindi naman nakakakain ng masustansya pero nakakapag breastfeed parin. Positive attitude and syempre stay hydrated. Pagnagpapadede maganda na may tubig sa tabi. Swerte ng asawa mo kasi supportive ka. Malaking benefit po ng breastfeeding hindi lang kay baby, sa health din ng mommy at sa bulsa ni daddy. hihi

Muntikan ko na ipag formula milk si baby ko dahil sa hirap pero pag naisip ko lahat ng magagandang idudulot ng breastmilk.... nawawala ang sakit at hirap. Tuloy ulit magbreastfeed.hehe....
