Hi mga sis! I am about to give birth on February and want to breastfeed. Never ko pa na try yung mga nursing top, puro lang ako daster na open yung harap pag nasa bahay. Now gusto ko i try yung mga nursing wear, I think mas convenient kase itataas mo na lang at hindi mo na kailangan magbukas ng buttons. Question is, what do you usually wear at home when breastfeeding? Saan ba ako makakabili ng mga murang nursing tank top lang na pwedeng pambahay? Pag nasa bahay ba you still wear a nursing bra? CS ako eh so will spend most of the time at home for a few weeks after delivery. Lalabas lang siguro ako kung doctor's check-up, grocery, etc.

Thanks!
I feel the breeze, my top is down, and all I do is ride around
and where I go I just don`t care, a place to chill to get away
I take it day by day, no work or play no where to stay,
and I just need to clear my mind to find my role and space in time

^Bra-less ako pag nasa house, I don't wear bra at all. Lol. Kami kami lang naman so keri lang. Nung first few weeks of breastfeeding namin, kapag nagle-leak ako, I use lampin lang. Tsaka comfortable eh, when I just gave birth I used to wear button down shirt na pambahay pero summer came I wear sleeveless lang and maluluwag na shirt when at home. Convenient for me kasi taas damit lang latch na agad si baby.

When I go out naman, nursing bra lang and a loose top, honestly I don't have any nursing top nor dress basta none except for a nursing bra. Before I got pregnant kasi I like loose tops na talaga that I pair with leggings or shorts, up until now na nagbe-breastfeed ako I can wear them. I bought na lang a nursing cover, I can't breastfeed parin kasi na all out when in public. Hehe.

Try to search Elin.ph ata yun, madaming nursing wears and Nursing Mommies PH on Facebook.

I find that using pyjamas are better kasi may buttons and less losyang.  I would still wear nursing bra in case I need to pump.  Sa first two weeks hindi siguro kailangan if purely breastfeeding.

sis periwinkle, sa bahay, bra-less ako pero before my 7th month, lagi ako may washable nursing pads. I use this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00SG2WU0C. I've also tried medela's collection shells - eto medyo hassle minsan kasi pag yumuko ka matatapon ang nagleak na milk dun sa shell.

Hindi ko masyado gusto nagamit ng lampin para sa leaks ko kasi kelangan tight ang shirts ko to keep them in place. Kaya yang nursing pads ang best para saakin.

Pag nalabas ng bahay, I wear nursing bras and recently lang ako bumili ng nursing dress hehe di ko pa alam paano gamitin (my son is 9 months old now). Usually t-shirt or button down shirts ang gamit ko, basta naitataas okay na. Magandang nursing bra ang bravado, I have 4 and I love them.

Enjoy your pregnancy days sis, sleep a lot!!!! Hope you'll have a smooth breastfeeding journey. :)

So i tried to latch my 16 month old the other day, first thing in the morning yan. I squeezed my breast para sure na may lumabas na breast milk, he unlatched and shook his head no. I asked him if he likes mommy's milk and he shook his head no again.

Today i showed him my breast, he just smiled. Usually whenever he sees breast he'd want to latch. I asked him if he wants mommy's milk, ng shook ng head. Mga 2 weeks narin ata siya hindi ng hihingi ng breastmilk. He can drink about 16-21 oz of fresh/formula/soy milk from his straw cup. Does this mean he weaned off by himself already?

Gusto ko sana to breastfeed him now kasi he has cough and colds and we're travelling in 2 weeks time okay sana for take off and landing pag breastfeeding.

Normal Lang po ba na wala pang 1hour gusto na ulit mag latch ni baby? Madalas kasi ayaw magpalapag ni Bunso, he's exactly 1month today. kaya minsan nakalatch sya habana kumakain ako. Sabi pa ni hubby bakit daw parang Hindi na sa satisfy is baby.  :( alam ko may nakukuha naman sya sakin kasi nagpupoop and nagwiwiwi naman si baby.
Thanks po sa mga magrereply.  :)

Hi sissies.

Mayroong breastfeeding group sa fb that you might be interested to join. BreastfeedingPinays

May mga bf advocate dun na makakapagadvice at iba pang mga mommies na nagstart from scratch din. Informative. It made me feel confident about breastfeeding. Kaya pagkapanganak ko, goal ko ang bf  kaya now pa lang nagpprepare na ako
I do nothing when confused.

:) mine..mine..mine..mine.. :)

Hello MommyNice, yes there are growth spurts for baby young babies until they are 1yo. You can join breastfeeding pinays on fb. It's normal for babies to keep latching kasi yan ang pinaka nagcocomfort sakanila eh. You're doing great mommy! palatch lang ng palatch! :)

^ Binder helped me a lot when breastfeeding post CS. Football hold usually ang nire-recommend para hindi madali yung incision, but never ko pa na-try yun. Lol. I did the cradle hold nung nakaka-upo na ko, nakaya naman kahit cradle hold because of the help na rin ng binder. But yung first few hours talaga na di ka pa makakabangon let your husband or a nurse help you para ipatong si baby sayo para maka-latch. Make sure na lang na open yung airways ng sa nose para the baby can breathe properly.

Oh and side-lying position does wonders too especially at night, pwede naman siya kahit newborn basta make sure na tama yung position niyo.

post-CS din ako and I started to bf baby when he was roomed-in (a day after he was born). If it wasn't for the Lactation Consultant who mentored me daily on bf (nasa hospital kami for a week, baby had complications), little one would've been on formula day 3 pa lang; it was so hard!

I cradle baby in my arms and the binder helps. Hindi ko gamay yung football hold.

sis, a nipple cream will help but if you want to address the root cause of sore nipples, you need to let your LO latch properly.  timing-an mo yung pagbuka ng mouth nya (rooting gesture) then "isubsob" mo yung head nya sa breast mo so that his mouth covers a big part of the areola too. THIS VIDEO might help in understanding how our LOs latch.

Re: engorgement. I believe this incidentally happens when baby doesnt latch properly and gets relatively little milk  compared to milk production. Sis, i suggest you express the "excess" milk in a feeding cup (I use Medela cup) which you can give your LO later (or as a stock when bf becomes tough especially in the wee hours).

I learned all these from my extended stay at the hospital (baby had complications) and super nakatulong kasi i never had sore nipples after the first time i did, as I learned how to let LO latch properly.

 Hi sis thank you for this :) . Its been 9days, still failed pa din ako sa pag latch. Nakukuha nya lang lagi yung upper part ng nipples ko. Nanood na ko ng vids regarding sa latching ang dali panoorin hirap gawin sa actual :( .may progress naman na nippies ko kasi may tumutulo na na gatas though pag nag pump ako halos wala pa sa 1oz nakukuha ko. Hand express naman matagal tumulo feeling ko nalalamog na boobs ko..Frustrated na ko pero hindi parin ako susuko,ngayon sore nipples ako kaya pump muna gagawin ko habang nag papaheal ako .para  latch ulit kami hindi ko kasi talaga kaya yung sakit parang sumasakit din yung tahi ko sa tiyan halos dumugo na yung nipples ko. minsan gusto ko na talaga mag pa consult para lang mabigyan ako ng tamang latching.

Naku I agree sis; kahit andami mo nang nabasa about breastfeeding techniques, pag actual na, iba na. Ang hirap. Nagka samaan pa kami ng loob ng mom ko nung dumalaw sya kasi iyak ng iyak baby ko kasi di pa ako magaling magpalatch. Gusto ni mama ibottle-feed na kasi naaawa sya sa bata.

But no, I was determined to learn the ropes of breastfeeding kaya chinaga namin ni hubby talaga. If u need a lactation consultant's help na, I'd recommend the one who mentored me sa Providence hospital. Natuto talaga ako and I can't thank her enough for the daily visits she did during our confinement.

I joined the Breastfeeding Pinays. Mejo naloloka lang ako kasi some mothers are super anti formula talaga. Na parang, no matter what happens, mag breastfeed ka lang. Kahit sabi na ng pedia na mag try mag mix feed, just continue breastfeeding. I think it's important to find a pedia na BF advocate talaga. Otherwise, bat pa mag consult sa doctor kung di mo rin pala pakikinggan at susundin diba?

Apir!

Napansin ko din yan as in para ka masamang ina pag nag formula ka.  Ako nag start talaga ako sa FM kase hindi ko talaga alam yan breastfeeding ang preps ko puro panganganak dahil sa kaba ko hindi ako nakapag prepare sa pag BF.  Until nag mixed feed ako then EBF pero hindi ko na yun na share sa BFP at minsan talaga meron iba dun na ewan ko kung passionate lang ba o talaga lakas lang maka husga.  Madami din nga dun yung nag consult sa pedia pero mas marunong pa kay dok hindi rin naman sumusunod nag sayang lang ng bayad sa pedia.  Kaya nga ako BF advocate si pedia at kilala ko almost my entire lifetime kasi sya ang pedia ko nung bata pa ko kaya matindi tiwala ko sa kanya napasunod nya ko mag EBF.

^^oo lakas lang maka husga ng iba. Alam ko naman some docs have a hidden agenda or vested interest kaya yung iba nagrerecommend ng formula. My uncle, who has been our entire family's pedia since we were kids, is not a strict bf advocate. Ieencourage ka nya mag bf pero hindi rin sya anti formula. He recommended mag mix feed sa sarili nyang apo and I don't think magagawa nyang ipahamak sarili nyang pamilya. This was when halos maloka na yung pinsan ko kaka try bfeed after CS hanggang nilalagnat na and ang payat na talaga ng apo nya and matamlay na ewan.

He recommended a bf advocate pedia sa akin kasi alam nya na I'm determined to breastfeed. So dun muna ako in the meantime. Sad lang na parang moms who choose to mix feed or to give formula ay parang mga nanay who just 'didn't try hard enough' to give 'the best' for their kids.

I agree about sa BFP.. Talagang dapat bf ka no matter what.. Kesyo hindi daw updated si pedia/ob kung disagree sila.. I think hindi rin updated siguro pero totoo din para saan pa med school nila diba? Edi sana sila na nagdoktor no? Haha

May nabasa pa ako nun comment na admin parang "they don't love their babies enough pag hindi bf" something like that..

Well, breastfeeding group naman kasi sya kaya natural ganun sila magcomment, tho minsan nakakaloka din. It's a matter of own personal choices naman kasi ako ebf lang talaga, ayoko magformula ever. Pero i'm for feeding bottles if ever pump ako milk.. Deadma sa nipple confusion at cupfeeding na lagi nila pinipilit. :)

I'm 33 weeks pregnant and I want to be mentally, emotionally and physically prepared when my baby comes especially when it comes to breastfeeding. Can I already take malunggay capsules even before I give birth to make sure that I have enough breast milk when my baby comes out?
