Breast milk moms

Common Questions and Answers about Breast milk moms


Avatar f tn A lot also depends on methods of delivery. C section moms (term or not) take longer to get milk because sometimes your body doesn't recognize that you're no longer pregnant without delivering vaginally. A lot of severely premature babies are better off delivered by c section. These are also the type of babies that can't nurse right away. So if that was your situation: pump!
Avatar f tn No its not painful.. and not everyone leaks.
Avatar f tn Well good news is your little one's stomach is still very small so he or she doesn't need much and typical your breast will produce more milk then needed until they get use to your little ones eating habits!
Avatar f tn 32 pm it was a 30 min delivery very fast got here at ghe hospital at 2 something pm im not getting any breast milk any ways i can get breast milk my bby really needs it he was 3 weeks premature & is i special care
Avatar f tn Just give it time your body will know when its time it is also very important to keep a healthy diet oatmeal and milk also helps produce more breast milk, when I was pregnant with my first I wasn't getting enough milk and I made oat milk and I started leaking all over the place Lol.
Avatar f tn Breast milk is milk. Not like the one we buy From the shop and have on cereal or in our tea. Our bodies produce milk when we are pregnant its the most natural way of feeding our little ones. Of course its up to you weather or not you decide to breastfeed me personally I am going to breastfeed if I can do. Its not as easy as it looks. Our bodies produce enough milk supply for our babies to have a full feed and when they are full they come away from the breast.
Avatar f tn My mother in law says I don't eat ghee so my baby is suffering. Please share your thoughts and experiences. Does the breast milk is really affected by what mother eats?
10665671 tn?1413748049 I don't think it makes any difference if you go straight from the breast or breast milk in a bottle. I didn't have much need to pump, so usually did it straight from the breast. My first child would go back and forth between breast and bottle but my second would only do the breast (kind of a pain). You can supplement with formula if there are issues with no hazard to your baby. But hopefully you won't have any.
Avatar f tn it triggers your milk makin hormones to start. About 2-5 days after the colostrum will turn to breast milk.
Avatar f tn U can keep ur breast milk room temp for 4hrs i had my baby 32+5 shes was in special care for 2an ahalf weeks they went thru it all witg me :) an I was told not to do anything with their brlly button jus leave it alone just watch out for infection
Avatar f tn Don't physically put her in water until after the umbilical cord completely falls off. As far as Breast milk, never feed her twice from the same Bottle. Milk is only good up to 2 hours at room temperature. 48 hours in the refrigerator and 6 months in the Freezer. If you are going to Freeze your Breast milk, thaw it in the refrigerator completely before you heat it, or it will look clumpy and unappealing.
Avatar f tn Thank u do u knw if i breast milk my bby does thathelp me loose weight i was around 135 before preg during preg before i delivered i was 189 n now im 181 :(
Avatar f tn when you started using the breast pump how long did it take for your milk to flow easily am have a steady flow.
Avatar f tn Breast milk has the rule of threes. Three hours out of the fridge. Three days in the fridge. Three weeks in a built in fridge freezer and three months in a proper freezer. You can get bags to store the milk in that doesn't take up heaps of space when you put them in the freezer. My mum told me not to store milk in the fridge door, I can't remember why but think it has something to do with not getting cool enough.
Avatar n tn I was the opposite with my first I had the same problem you are having now I try breastfeeding and all it would come out it was colostrum no milk at all so after 2 months trying I was just driping tiny drops of milk so I just decided to quit breastfeeding I wasn't producing I am about to give birth in a week and I'll see how it goes I am planning breastfeeding but I hope I don't have the same problem..

Avatar n tn Am I the only one that did not know that the blood service also let's you donate any extra breast milk you have? And they deliver it to babies in hospital! I just wondered other people's thoughts on this??
Avatar f tn So I was planning on breast feeding but I have NO BREAST MILK has this happened to any one else .
Avatar f tn But I've seen lots of people who don't have that much milk in their breast to give to baby so they have to give formula. Anything I could do eat or drink now?
283175 tn?1295540865 I personally used formula,there is just the right amount of nutrients needed in formula milk,than breast milk.granted if all mothers could breast feed,then would be a bonus.but formula is just as good. would be interested in seeing other people views on this.
Avatar f tn Mothers milk capsules helped me. Take 2 each time. But if you skip a feeding/pump you are training your body to produce less milk. Your body will only make as much as your baby needs and the only way it knows that is by the amount of times you pump.
Avatar f tn Actually the foods you eat will make a difference in the taste of your breast milk - that's why breastfed babies whose moms have healthy diets with lots of variability end up enjoying a wider range of foods when they start eating solids, because they've tried them before. Some babies are more sensitive to "gassy" foods like broccoli than others, mine never had a problem... Lots of water, and keep taking prenatals - those are the biggest things.
Avatar f tn I fully believe in breast feeding and I've always planned to breast feed! And I'm getting induced tomorrow and I thought it was odd that I hadn't started leaking anything. (I know awhile ago my right nipple was like blocked/clogged) so I gently squeezed my left breast and it came out with no problem! Then I tried to squeeze my right breast and nothing... And I can see it's still clogged. How do I unclog it?!!
