If baby cries means ur baby is hungry. One way to identify my dr tell me that babies do over eating and u will know. Some times we think it just our passiveness.
If ur baby is peeing more than 6 times a day n gaining wt then it means he is getting enough milk. Dont worry about the time baby sucks milk. Some babies r expert n suck milk in few minutes n can fill up their tummies.
How frequently do I need to check her wt?
U can check in 15days if u r very concerned otherwise 1 month is ok. Babies till 6 months gain approximately 180-200 gms per week.
As u said her birth wt was 1.75 kg n after 2 months its 3.3kg then ur baby is gaining good wt. Don't worry
Even my baby was 1.72 at birth and now after 2 months she is 3.45.... Though from the very beginning there was no prob in sucking and in the hospital only I started with breastfeeding... It was not adequate so they suggested similac neo sure. Gradually I am observing tht she is interested in breastmilk and less in formula as unlike the last month, the number of formala cans have significantly reduced.... Try laconic powder, saboodana and definitely make ur baby suck milk... That stimulates milk production...
Thanks Anindita.. but my query was long back. Now my baby is 5 months 25 days old and till nw she is on breast milk. I used electric breast pump which helps me to increase the breast milk and had lots of vegetables,water nd milk and was taking lactaways twice. Nw m so excited to introduce solid food after a week.
And all d best 2 u for continuing bm till 6 months.
Hi rosalin... Then it is now my turn to ask for a help from you... Pls suggest me a good electric breast pump that will take less time and also shd b within budget.. I wil join by June and wish to express my milk for her in my absence... If u can tell me the brand and preferably which one is best...
I bought trumum frm flipkart. This one.
Is it fast? Does it make Noise? And how many hrs can we keep the expressed milk in refrigerator
Yes it is fast initially it will come in less quantity and later on it ll increase. U can keep it in room temperature for 4 hrs and in refrigerator 24 hrs. But better not to keep long time. once u take out d milk frm fridge don't put it back so take required quantity every time frm fridge rest keep it back immediately.and very important part is hygienic. Sterilize all the breastpump equipments and bottles properly after single use.
Thanks a tonn for the advice.. I hv got it in amazon as well... Will surely let u know once I Purchase..... All the best...
U welcome :)
