Called the hotline and had a good chat with one of the counsellors to sort out supply issue. I feel so much more confident now and we have come up with a plan to try and increase my milk supply.
Wish me luck! Not liking my chances of a good sleep tonight... :smt015

When my girlfriend's son started worrying about monsters she told him that monsters dont exist, but "monster trucks" do and they are cool. She just explained that "monster" just means big so "monster trucks" are big and awesome. Her little boy now loves monster trucks and has forgotten all about mon...

Not seeing hind milk when expressing

This morning I had to express before giving DD her 6am feed because she decided to have a sleep-in... and after half an hour I managed to get about 30ml of EBM but when I went to get it from the fridge later after feeding DD I noticed that the EBM had separated in the bottle and 95% of what was ther...

For the first time since I brought my DD home from hospital 3.5 weeks ago, she has only had a breastfeed. No EBM or formula top-up... and she is sound asleep!! Im hoping this is the start of something permanent (well, for the next year or two!) :D It seems increasing my meds may have done the trick....

After DD has finished on the second breast I do go back to the first breast again and continue doing both breasts until its obvious she isn't getting anything anymore.

Not enough milk...?

Hi, My DD is now a month old and Im worried that I may not be able to continue breastfeeding because I dont seem to produce enough milk. I BF until she unlatches and then give her the other breast but I still have to give her a formula top-up. Her top-ups vary from 20ml to 60ml. I am on medication t...
