Avatar f tn Congratulations on your having a 4month old, A Breast Pump is the best thing to get they are a woderfully easy way to pump off your milk for Baby,In the US we have small plastic bags especially made for Breast milk that the Milk is poured into after expressing, and then put into the Freezer to be given to Baby when its feed time.
1528695 tn?1360582320 How long does it take for your milk to dry up? Mine feels to have decreased in amount, but if i manipulate my breast/nipple (as in hand expression) i get a few squirts and drops.... then i quit. Does the milk totally stop coming out or is this my new normal?
140844 tn?1204941653 Breast milk is good left out until the next feeding.. they say it can stay at room his tempature up to 10hrs.. but if my baby does not finish i give him the remainder at his next feeding or put it back in thhe fridge till next feeding . This is NOT the same for formula as it must be discarded after 1 hr.. but NOT tell your dh to put it back in the fridge. P.S. heat the breast milk only in warm water Never put it in the microwave.. it will lose all it benefits!

10389360 tn?1410823968 Hello! Out sweet baby girl ChloƩ arrived safely in her due date of may 12th..ftm, in labor for 14 hours (which was prolonged by epidural I'm sure, I went into labor at 430am, dilated to 8cm by 1130am and then got epidural) and pushed for 24 minutes! Question about breastfeeding. I have gotten into the habit of feeding her on the left side exclusively and then pumping on the right to build a frozen milk supply. Is this OK? Anyone else doing this?

Avatar f tn and today i gave it too him but its very watery. is that normal for breast milk. he usually has milk run out of the corner of his mouth a little bit and its very white but when i gave him the bottle that had been in the fridge it was more clear and watery. i feel like its not as good as if i just feed him from my breast.
Avatar f tn When will you start to get milk in your breast? I am 31 weeks and have yet to get mine, it makes me nervous cause I plan on breast feeding.
5612058 tn?1373576034 Enough wet and poopy diapers and if the baby is thriving. Breastfeeding is a supply and demand thing so just let baby eat and you will produce enough. Make sure you drink water and stay hydrated.
Avatar f tn since u cannot take medication cuz of breast feeding, maybe you could freeze some milk and have the surgery since that is all that will help or just plain medication, or you may have to wait till your done feeding, and have surgery or take mild pain meds, because i had it and it is painful after surgery too. so you will need to be on medicaion.
Avatar f tn When do breast milk starts coming out the breast I had my baby on the 29th no milk still
Avatar f tn But the amout tranfered via breast milk is very small. I had my kids tested just to ease my nerves and there thyroid functions remained normal through out breast feeding (BF each one, 1 and 1/2 years). The pediatrition said they usually dont monitor kids BF with mother using PTU cause the amount is so small. Pregnancy and postpartum AND breastfeeding can alter your thyroid levels. unless you are experiencing major health issues I would not jump into TT.

Avatar f tn Say I keep breast feeding all day in 2 months will I get more milk or less
Avatar f tn Pump as much as possible and put the baby on your breast too. Stimulating your breast sends the signal to the brain to produce milk. Also make sure to get lots of fluids.
Avatar f tn I'm 5 months pregnant but I still don't have any breast milk. Is this normal? If it is when am I supposed to get it?
Avatar f tn Is there a a specific time that your breast start to leak breast milk or does it happen at different times depending on the woman? If so when did y'all start noticing your breast leaking?
10665671 tn?1413744449 I'm a stay at home mom. Breast fed my both kids till 1 year. I'm on my 3rd baby now & plan on breastfeeding again. If you plan on being with your baby 24/7, there's no need to pump all the time. You can if you want milk on hand, your milk will be good frozen for a few months. If you don't have a heavy supply of milk I heard there's a tea you can drink it's all natural, that helps your body produce more milk.
Avatar f tn Is it okay for baby to drink the clearish breast milk from the breast?
