Day 7 updates

It's been almost a week since I delivered Kaith and I'm glad that everything went on smoothly to date.

Nurses has came to check on Kaith & myself on Day 3 & today, they said Kaith has no jaundice at all & she is healthy, and of course they encourage me to keep breastfeeding Kaith, which I'm already doing anyway. They will come again on Day 10 to measure her weight. Kaith is currently on breast milk & formula milk alternately (poor mummy has not establish her milk supply yet :<), taking 3oz each feed on 3-4 hours interval.

Confinement has been pleasant so far, I've been taking herbal hot bath everyday, and I've also gone for Malay post natal massage on Day 4, which actually has made me feel more energetic & healthier, I shall be going for another round sometime this week. As for the confinement food, I'll have another write up about it next.

Wow! You make confinement sound like so smooth and easy. I had a really tough time for both my kiddoes. Haha.

Actually my last confinement was better when I had my aunt to be my day time confinement nanny; while my MIL helps to take care of baby during night time.

This time I'm more on my own but I think it's not too bad, at least I can still blog, haha LOL.

CONGRATULATIONS! Aiyoh, so sorry for my lateness. Such a wonderful feeling to have a tiny, tiny baby in the house.
By the way, just wondering, isn't it more difficult to establish milk supply if you are supplementing with formula?

Hi K--that sounds so good. Keep getting your strength back and your little ones.

drink more fluid to generate more breastmilk....nurse more to speed up the stimulation...

Muminmiri said...

3 oz? That's good. Mine is only taking 2 oz. It is true if you continue nursing your milk flow will increase. All the best.

Hi Lian, I will nirse Kaith whenever she needs, but sometimes after that she still show signs of hunger so I will top up with formula milk. Anyhow, I'm confident that I can manage to do better as I already did the same for Dillon. :)

And yes I've been bathing everyday from Day 2 onwards (after discharged from hospital), my last CL practises this & it seems fine.
