    JJ I haven't done any sterilizing this time but last time I would keep everything in the sterilizer until I used it or sterilized it again the next day. If it was wet I would just shake over the sink to get what I could out then use.

    Any suggestions for a bub who is being lazy at the boob and taking forever to feed? But will greedly take a expressed bottle.

    Congrats Jay and welcome baby Hilton! Love his name and the pics are precious xo

    JJ I have been leaving things in the steriliser until I need them.

    ABH my bub is the same. Feeds are taking 40-60 mins and sometimes she falls asleep before she fully empties the breast. I've been expressing the milk she leaves behind. First make sure bub is not wrapped, the cosier they are the lazier they'll be. I let Amy feed til she starts nodding off, then sit her up for burping, then back on the boob for round 2. The second time she nods off I do a nappy change to wake her up, then back on the boob for round 3 til she falls asleep again. After that I wrap her and put her to bed. Unfortunately no way to speed it up, just have to be patient and enjoy the bonding time. DH gives her the expressed milk at night and it takes him 5 mins!

    Ann- sorry you're having a tough recovery. I hope the worst is over and you'll be better soon.

    Hi to everyone else

    And so you should feel sorry for yourself, you're having a rough run. I hope at least one of those things if not both clear up soon.

    I do the whole, pull off the boob, burp and nappy change too. And I agree, sometimes that doesn't work so I wrap it up.

    Simpson, I don't express the left over milk but like that idea.

    This is probably a silly question, but how many mLs is enough for a feed of expressed milk?
    I've only breastfeed so work in minutes, not millilitres at my feeds 😊

    After 2 weeks most bubs can consume up to/over 100mL per feed. When L feeds well she takes about 20 ish minutes before she falls off and will sleep for 3-4 hours. But when she farts around its 3x 20 min and she still only sleeps for up to an hour. I guess my issues are causing low supply which is a pain because we've done so well the last few days and havent needed any formula top ups but tonight she smashed 80mL of EBM plus 100mL of formula.

    Thanks lots, I'm seriously very close to giving up but I'm so freaking stubborn Just took some of my post-op oxycodone for the pain and I didn't even take any post-op.

    Lots I looked this up online the other day as I wasn't sure either.

    Apparently it is 150mls per kg of body weight per day.

    So if bub is 4kgs and having six feeds per day it would be 4 x 150 / 6 = 100mls per feed.

    Remy is 3.8 and doing 7 feeds in 24 hrs so 81mls per feed. If I was going to go out and leave her with someone else I would make sure there was at least an extra 50-75 mls tucked away in the fridge just in case!

    Ngaiz you poor thing, what a rough trot. Hope it's all cleared up ASAP.

    Lots I'm averaging 2 pumping sessions a day and each session gets 30-50ml into a bottle. DH was getting 2 feeds done with that, but since yesterday Amy can drink all of it in one feed.

    Bedlover thanks for that info, very helpful!

    JJ- I remember your recommendation about getting cloth nappies as they would have so many uses, I went out and bought some following your last post about them & now plan to use them as extra protection in the cot and change table too. Anything that means less washing is great! Thanks for the tips.

    Bedlover- I have an electric steriliser and was thinking of leaving the sterilised bottles in there too. I think I read somewhere that they stay sterile for up to 24hrs in there so I'm guessing you'd have to re-sterilise before if you weren't using bottles all the time?

    Thanks for the feeding tips Simpson, I'm going to remember the burp and nappy change to keep bub interested!
    Also appreciate Bedlovers post on the amount of mils to give during a feed as I agree, most people talk about length of time, not necessarily volume.
    You ladies are a wealth of information, I'm learning so much already but I'm sure I'll have a thousand questions once our baby girl arrives.

    Ouch Ngaiz, you poor thing! I hope you get some relief soon!
