hello mommies.
i started my baby girl with solids this month. as always, malakas talaga kumain ang baby ko.  but i noticed, my milk supply lessened. as in kahit 4-5 hours na hindi sya magfeed from me, hindi na kagaya ng dati na after only 2 hours, i'm "refilled" so to speak. i'm a bit worried because i don't want to stop breastfeeding. i'm aiming at least a year before i wean her off or until talagang wala na akong milk na lumalabas.

i'm still hoping na makapag continue pa rin na magbreastfeed kay stacey because I am proud to say na my baby and i are one of the few who were mixed feeding at first but was successful to move to exclusive BF.

any tips mga mommies? did you experience the same? thanks :)
   I would suggest that u try yung mga malungay capsule, like PRO-LACTA, and always drink lots of fluids and avoid caffaine. ;)

- are breastfed babies always - i mean ALWAYS - hungry?  kasi after magdede ng baby ko sa b**bsies eh iiyak pa and won't settle down unless padedehin ko pa sya - kahit na drain na yung 2 b**bs.
  BF babies get hungry more quickly because BF milk is digested more easily. As long as your baby is gaining weight, you are producing enough milk.  :)

- what could be the consequence of mix feeding - formula and breastmilk? eh since di nga nabubusog si baby sa breastmilk lang, kelangan ko pang magtimpla ng formula.  hindi tuloy sya exclusive breastmilk.
  The consequence is that your breasts will produce less milk.  :( Breastfeeding is supply and demand.  If your baby sucks from you more, you will produce more milk.  If your baby sucks from you only sometimes and sometimes from the bottle, then your breasts will produce less milk.

- normal lang bang hindi maging pantay ang b**bs?  my left is bigger than the right.
  Yes that's normal.  Don't worry, in a few months magpapantay din yan.  :)

- what are the foods that i have to avoid while breasfeeding?
  Alcohol, medication (unless prescribed by doctor), peanuts, coffee.  If your baby has allergies baka sabihan ka rin ng doctor to avoid allergenic foods as well.

- since masakit ang magpa breast feed, nagp pump ako ng milk tapos she'll drink it from the bottle, now im having a hard time getting her drink from the b**bs again... any advice po?
  Hmmm, direct feeding is always better than pumping.  Pain could be caused by incorrect latch; just make sure that the baby is latched properly (mouth fully open -- almost as big as a yawn, nipple pointing upwards towards' baby's palette, and lips pursed outwards na parang isda).  Direct feeding is really the best -- masakit lang yan first few weeks kasi hindi pa magaling maglatch si baby but after awhile pag natuto na siya maglatch hindi na masakit.  Direct feeding will stimulate your breasts to produce more milk.

For some moms, however, they really cannot direct feed (e.g. working moms) so giving breastmilk through the bottle is the second-best option.  It's best to start introducing the bottle only after 3 - 4 weeks, pag marunong na si baby sa breast para hindi niya ireject yung breast.

-- ok lang ba na lagi sya dede, o kailangan p din sundin yung 2-3 hrs interval, kasi pansin ko pag d ko sinundan ng formula every hour gising sya para dede, ok lang ba yun?

If you're breastfeeding, just feed on demand.  Kung gutom si baby, ipadede mo.  No need to follow a schedule.  Pag newborn normal lang na madalas siya magfeed: they're stomachs are only the size of their fists, kaya talagang madalas pa silang gumising para dumede.  Hindi mo kailangang sundan ng formula; eventually pag lumaki ang tiyan niya hindi na siya gigising ng ganoong kadalas.  Don't worry; only the first month is difficult, after awhile baby will settle into a better schedule.

-- ok lang bang d sya mag burp every after breastmilk, kasi minsan nahihimbing n ata yung tulog niya d sya talaga burp d ko na maantay kasi naawa n ko sa ayos niya kaya higa ko n sya.
Pag newborn si baby, it's important to burp after every feed kundi magigising siyang masakit at tiyan at kinakabag and he'll cry a lot.  When your baby is older he'll learn to burp himself already so you don't have to be as strict about burping.

I'm in pain right now. My 2yo bit my nip**e. He sometimes does that pag tulog na siya, probably nanaginip. Now it hurts whenever he nurses on that breast so I always give the other breast. He eats a lot of solids naman so he doesn't drink much from me and surprisingly, 1 breast can sustain his need. At the end of the day however, my other breast will feel heavy and I have no choice but to give it to him at bedtime. Namimilipit po ako sa sakit, parang 1st time kong mag breastfeed na parang ginugupit ang nip**e ko.
No noticeable swelling, wound, discharge or red color. I apply my own drop of milk and air dry it kasi I learned it has healing properties daw. I don't want to use healing creams. Or should I? I never used 1 before. It's been 3 days already. Which Doctor should I go to, my OB?

hi! I am breastfeeding exclusively for almost 10 months now. Yes, breastfed babies tend to get hungry easier. Parang di nabubusog. kami nga ng baby ko umaabot ng 1-2 hours ang dodo session. Madali silang magutom kasi breastmilk is easily digested than formula kaya konting wiwi at poop lang nila, gutom agad. I tried mixed feeding for 2 days after discharge ni baby from hospital, pero di kaya ng tummy niya. Nagsusuka sya. iba kasi yung consistency ng breastmilk at formula. saka nung nafeel ni baby na mas masarap magdodo sa nipple ko, umayaw na sya sa bottle totally. Minsan I tried tricking her na bigyan sya ng bottle pag feeding time niya sa gabi. Nagigising sya, alam nyang rubber nipple ang isinubo sa kanya. Kaya I decided to breastfeed na lang up to now. Some babies naman pag nasubukan na magbottle, umaayaw na sa nipple ng mommy since mas marami silang nakukuhang milk sa bottle. Like yung cousin ko, her baby use to mixed feed for 4 months tapos nung lumakas na yung appetite ng baby, umayaw na sa breast. Avoid spicy foods while breastfeeding,nakakakabag daw sa baby,saka yung may caffeine. minimal lang if possible. no to junk foods also. I think it's normal na mas malaki yun isang breast. sa kin the right is bigger kasi dun sya mas malakas magdodo at mas marami ang milk supply.  Enjoy mommyhood and good luck to your breastfeeding!!

hi mommy, i have a 7-month old daughter naman. exclusively BF sya until she turned 6 months and started on solids. ngayon i give ger breastmilk, formula and solids. basta tuloy tuloy mo lang na i-BF sya if she needs milk, that way hindi mauubos ang supply mo. the law of supply and demand kasi applies also to breastfeeding. if she seems unsatisfied, dun mo pa lang sya bigyan ng formula.

ako naman i decided not to exclusively BF her anymore kasi nahihirapan ako everytime i have to go out and run errands. naaawa din ako kay baby kasi before she wont take the bottle talaga kaya super iyak sya. sabi naman ni pedia ay ok lang daw if i supplement, (supplement lang) with formula.

hope i helped.. ;)

Hello again! I'm glad my pain is gone. It takes 1 week for it to heal. although there's no visible mark or sign of wound or any trouble, nag heal lang siya mag isa. I limit my son's nurse on my right breast to once a day at bedtime just to empty it. I have to bear the pain but if it's only once a day, kaya nang tiisin
Any advice on how to wean my son? He's 27 mos. He nurses only at naptime in the afternoon and bedtime. Pampaantok niya kasi dede session namin. He doesn't take the bottle. He also doesn't talk yet. We're scheduling him for speech therapy but that's another story.

Ganyan talaga pag breastfeed......

Busog na ang baby pag huminto na sya sa pagdede :D

Kahit di muna sundin ang 2-3hrs interval okay lang kasi always ready naman yung milk eh... un nga ang good thing about breastfeeding di napapanis at always on the go ang milk mo

Kaya siguro di pantay breast mo kasi di rin pantay pagpapadede mo, kelangan once nagdede baby mo,half sa kabila and the other half sa kabila na naman para maging pantay....

wala ka dapat i avoid na  kainin...... pero pag may sipon ang baby mo , avoid mo muna mga cold drinks
korek ka jan sis..

to all e-breastfeeding moms 6 months onwards...pls help!
« Reply #26 on: January 14, 2011, 12:09:12 pm »

Hi mga mommies! :) super inspired ako sa mga mommies who breastfeed (no formula milk) their babies! i read here na yung iba up to 3 years and some even longer.

kayo gaano na katagal kayo nag bf? as in pure bf milk lang...walang formula.

ask ko din, yung mga mommies na 6months onwards kapag nagpapa-breastfeed ba kayo..direct ba? or minsan pinapag bote niyo si baby? hindi ba nagkaka nipple confusion si baby to the point na ayaw niya na dumede sa inyo? hindi ba kung magbote si baby, possible mag decrease ang supply ng milk?

thank you so much! super need ko lang talaga ng answer sa mga tanong ko. kasi i think my IL's are expecting na ipag-bobote ko na baby ko kapag nag 6mo na siya. e ako gusto ko until 1 year sana direct siya. kaya kelangan ko ng mga sagot  :)

my baby is 8 mons na and i am still breastfeeding, directly, no bottle whatsoever. although im thinking of mixed feeding her one of this days  ;D  depende rin naman sa mom if she opts on mixed feeding or not once the baby is 6mons up. from what i know, the more you breastfeed lesser chances of depleting your supply.
 
as for me, im gonna breastfeed until wala na talagang tutulo na milk hahaha

hello mommyjaz, good to hear na you're ok.  yan din yung fear ko pag lumabas na yung ngipin ng baby ko. he has one now.  me nilagay kang oinment or yung breastmilk mo lang ginamit mo?

@cowgirl_mommy, sabi sa breastfeeding class ko, your breast will not sag.  its the law of gravity that makes it sag...plus old age. hehe

@mommy baby_rian. ok lang mag take ng gamot para sa sipon mommy sabi ng lactation consultant ko. :) pero ako personally i dont drink medicine unless absolutely necessary. yung tipong hindi na kakayanin ng water therapy lang at isang katutak na calamansi juice. hehe.  i mix feed my son too.

Hi mommies.  I just had my 2nd baby 2 weeks ago.  With my first baby, i had more than enough bmilk... At 2 weeks, i was exclusively breastfeeding na.  So i was expecting it would be the same this time.  But here i am, two weeks na, even with pumping every 2 hours, my milk supply is still super few (1 oz total per session).  I'm taking malunggay capsules and drinking a lot.  My diet is the same as with my first baby.  Only difference is i'm having trouble with sleep this time, as in haven't had a good night's sleep since i came home, not because of the baby, but more of postpartum blues, parang ang dami kong iniisip.  At night nakapikit lang ako, i get up to pump, then pikit lang ulit, sleep really is elusive.  Anyway, just wondering if anybody else experienced reduced bmilk the 2nd time around when the first time was overflowing...???  Losing hope with bfeeding...
