    I miss the sleep ha ha

    Would totally recommend getting a pump if your bf. I have and advent one and tip the milk in a closer to nature bottle. Great to use those days when your nips are really sore. And to get a supply of stored milk incase you get sick or want a few extra drinks.

    Totally recommend the Medela Swing breast pump & the Medela Calma teats/bottles they allow you to swap back and forth between breast & bottle with out the worry of bub getting too used to the ease of a bottle as they simulate the same suckling of the breast ... If that makes sense??

    I just bought the calma Amy.. I hope it works as ella won't take a bottle.. She gags and throws up every time!
    I hired a double pump cause of the long hospital stint, but bought the swing when I had ds... It's awesome.

    Ella hasn't been settling well.. Really bad gas. Any advice?
    She is up from 9pm to midnight, and is cluster feeding a lot.
    Passes out on the boob, so I'm struggling to fill her up every feed! So annoying!!!

    We've had this aswell, I got the stomach calm by Bauer for Myles, seems to do the trick, as soon as he is 1 month old I'll change to Infacol... Apparently it's heaps better :-)

    HI Girls, I agree with Amy, I also brought the Medela swing breast pump. Love it. I shopped around on line and got my local baby shop to match the price. $250.00. Best investment. x

    Nala, Beauitful little man. Love the fur kid with buba.
    Beta, How cute and perfect.
    Nicsta, Good luck with the breast feeding. It can be really hard. I am still struggling with it. Olivia is 10 weeks. Do what is right for you. It is your bub. That was the only thing that really made me upset in the hospital. One nurse would say do it this way and no bottles. Another nurse would come in and say give our baby a bottle till your milk comes in. I remember the LC telling me that Olivia was such a good weight born that she would be able to latch on to a brick. So when I am having a bad day thinking of that makes me smile.
    Thinking of you. I am sure it will all work out. Kel x

    The breast feeding has improved today, it got easier once a good mid wife explained a few things instead of just barking orders

    Everything is one day at a time at the moment...or 1 hour at a time.

    BF just isn't working doesn't help I haven't got my milk in yet so she's on formula and skin to skin hoping she will at some point latch as she has issues doing just that
    I have had a cry over it but at the end of the day I have to just keep trying and formula in the mean time.
    I'm off home today woo hoo can't wait sleep in my own bed
    Well hope everyone is ok oh have I mentioned I'm so in love with maddison

    Hang in there Mrs S, its not as easy for some as it is with others... Myles and I still haven't got the hang if it... I express all his feeds with DH doing the bottle feeding, we are also using formula a couple of times a day to help take the pressure off & freezing excess to keep us going, plus I am taking motilium to try help my supply, all the stressing had wiped me out! We are using the Medela Calma teat so that BF isn't lost forever & still can be established, Myles seems more awake at feeding time now so might be a little better, I just need to get up the courage to try him again... So hang in there as long as bub is feeding from some method it's the best thing for her XXX
