mga mommies, ano po bang brand ng  nipple ang gamit ni baby sa bahay?   para maiwasan at hindi maconfuse si baby pag magpapa breast feed n kyo pag uwi.  :)

he's practising cup feeding, kaya lang matagal.
baka may idea po kyo? lalu na yung mga mommy na nagpump sa office ng breast milk for their babies.

ano po ang bottle and nipple gamit nyo kay baby?

kahit ako ginakagat at hinihila pero pinagsasabihan ko na kahit nung younger pa sya ng no biting. ngayon naman pag sinasabi ko yan di naman ginagawa.
4months ata may ibang baby na may ngipin na. pero si vierte 10months na wala pa din

Working moms and breastfeeding
« Reply #6 on: December 20, 2008, 06:30:27 pm »

I'm about to be a first time mom by March and I'd like to address my question to working moms here.  I plan to go back to work and graduate school after giving birth.  This seems ambitious, but I have consulted with a few classmates of mine who are doing so and they say that it's doable.  Anyway, I'd just like to ask how many times do you pump while at work?  Does your office have an area where moms can express their milk?

Wow...every 3 hrs!  I don't think I can do that much pumping.  Medo pricey din yung medela electric pumps kaya naghe-hesitate pa ako mag-invest on 1.  I read din kasi in an article online na I should at least wait after I've tried breastfeeding if I have enough supply of milk.  Hay...hirap yata maging working breastfeeding mom!  :(

sis sa pagkakaalam ko, the more you extract your milk and empty your breast(thru direct breastfeed or pump) mas magiincrease yung milk supply mo. yung logic kasi dun is parang psychology mo yung body mo to produce more milk since madals ma-empty yung breast mo. tho, mas ok pa din daw magdirect breastfeed, it has something to do with the saliva of the baby. ako 4mos lang nag-pump, have to stop kasi nung huli nagkaka skin allergy ako and i have to take medications na ;D

So every 3 hour on the average.  Maliit lang kasi office namin and there's no space for me to pump. Hindi ba mahirap pag manual?  Ilang minutes naman yung every pump?

sakin eh mga 10 min lang, basta before you start pump massage mo muna nipple mo to stimulates letdown. mararamdaman mo yun kasi titigas yung breast mo at tutulo yung milk start kana amg pump kasi mas mabilis at mas madami ka ma macocolect. ako i collect 5-7oz. both breast na po iyon sa ngayon kc kumakain na baby ko.
about sa manual pump ok lang sakin kc na excercise yung hands and fingers ko, hindi ko p n try electric pricy kc and nabasa ko s ibang thread na maingay daw. pero you try. baka depende s brand.

try mo ask sa mga friends mo na may breastpump try mo muna kung ano mas madaling magpa letdown ng milk yun ang kunin mo. may iba kasi ma sakit sa nipple, walang na pupump daw..,masakit sa kamay, maingay etc..etc..
 its up to you... ;)

ako din magwowork na soon! I'm exclusively breastfeeding my 2 months old son.

I'm still waiting for my medela pump, until then I can't start pumping pa. Anyway, tips naman po on how you introduced the bottle to the baby and how you avoided nipple confusion. Fear ko lang kasi baka pg inintroduce ko ang nipple sa bottle ayaw na niya sa nipple ko pag-uwi! waaa thanks

Hay...yan din fear ko.  Hopefully di mahirapan si baby sa transition.  Aside from work, I have masters pa, so super late na ako uuwi.  Problem ko pa yung pag-store at handle ng milk na na-pump ko from work.  Sobrang ambitious ba ako para pagsabay-sabayin ang work, school at motherhood?!  I know some people who have done it, so siguro naman kaya ko.
