I'm wanting to express/pump so that my other half can be involved in the feeding

Hieya, My Lo is 8 weeks and I had an emergency c section so could not breastfeed in the beginning due to sore and cracked nipples. I feel my supply is low and would like to fully breast feed. At the moment I am combi feeding. My Lo doesnt want to see the breast for more than 10 to 15 mins and gets cranky and fidgety thats when I have to top up. Any tips on increasing my supply so that I can fully breast feed?
Ana

My milk came in late after a retained placenta so the hospital arranged top up feedings. since then baby won't take to breastfeeding - completely rejects the breast. is it possible to start breastfeeding at 4 weeks old or should I accept that it won't happen now?

Pumping just once a day and having partner to feed once a day sounds like a good compromise. Understand your point about my milk changing throughout the day. Thank you

Hi, I am having trouble at night with my 6 month old, he seems to want to feed more at night, he wakes up from 2-3 hours at night, I've noticed aswell that he gets cranky or let out a cry when I stop feeding him and try put him back in his cot. He would rather fall asleep on the breast. it's quite trying. During the day he naps perfectly, just at night that I have trouble with him.

In a similar position to Ana. Had an emergency section and complications after. I’ve ended up combo feeding, my son had a tongue tie division yesterday and have been putting him to the breast constantly but he’s so hungry. he doesn’t seem to be latching properly - just desperately sucks til he falls asleep

my baby is one month old . she is my second and I know her latch is good but when she nurses on my left side there is more discomfort from the right. I have tried a different position... could it be that her latch is wrong on one side ?

hi, my friend had this problem of not having milk for the first 2 days and then her supply was fine. so what happens if my breasts are not able to produce milk immediately after the baby is born? I am concerned about having top up feedings intially and then this causing nipple confusion

LO is 9 months and grateful for a really positive BF journey (sister was a BF peer supporter - support is essential!) but want to wean off BF at a year when I return to work. Currently only feed to sleep (approx 4/5 times a day) but wondering how to even start to wean her off

Hello. Great session. Thank you. My baby seems to latch on quite well, but every few days I seem to get engorged in the right-hand breast. It gets so big, she can't latch on, I have intense pain and feel very cold. How can I resolve this please?

Hello, my baby is nearly 5 months old and exclusively breastfed however, she will only feed when we are led down together and because of this I'm not able to go out for long periods of time. If I try to breastfeed in other positions she gets really upset. Help!

I was told in the days after my baby’s birth that she has a posterior tongue-tie and I was advised at the hospital not to have it snipped as bf was going well. Since then I’ve noticed her latch isn’t very wide and tends to slip back to the nipple during a feed. She’s six weeks now and I’ve not been in pain but she does only feed for 10-15mins max. Does that suggest something is wrong? Starting to wonder if we should we get the tongue-tie snipped anyway? Thanks for any advice!

this is so true what you guys are saying in my hospital midwife was putting pressure on me that my newborn baby is not getting enough milk from me and suggesting to top it up with a formula whereas I was exactly thinking that newborn’s stomach must be tiny and doesn’t need lots of milk at the beginning!
Lorraine Natasha

I wish i was told about my son's expanding stomach. As I was really concerned that he was not get anything in the first few days of exclusively bf. Now he has reflux that has developed, and he is now 5 months. He is now mixed fed.

Breast draining... is it best to let one breast go down completely, or do 20 mins on each breast?
