    Could be the formula. It's hard as I haven't fed her on BM or formula exclusively. Always mixed feed. What do I do? I don't want to change formula brand as it can make it worse. I'm using nan gold ha which meant to be softer on her tummy.

    The other thing, I found I have good energy on Monday and Tuesday and by Wednesday I'm starting to feel tired and can't wait for weekend so DH can help.

    My poor little girl has been sleeping but toss and turn the whole sleep. She seems to finally sleep well for the last 20mins.

    Hard work being a mother!!! Sometimes I wonder what life was like before her. So simple. Yet the joy of having her in my life is beyond words.

    @Minib that's good no constipation. Maybe she just was feeling uncomfortable - once off. I've been expressing today. Only fed him a little in the morning after his long sleep cos he was crying as he couldn't wait for his bottle. I'll try express for the remainder of the day and see how I go. Seeing mat health nurse tmr.

    Talk to your MHN about the challenges. But don't let her make you feel guilty for not BF directly. I found some nurses are so pro BF they couldn't see beyond BF. And it just made me feel worse. Like I'm so scared to call aba for example because I'm doing mixed feed

    The only pressure I've felt to breastfeed was from friends actually saying to persist etc. but mat health nurse and aba are very understanding. In fact one lactation consultant told me not to make it my everything. Another said you know when you've had enough and that most ppl quit after mastitis so she was impressed. The nurse most stressed me out about weight gain

    I know what you mean re friends saying to persist. They mean well but it can give you extra pressure. I've had that too hence I haven't quit yet I think. Some friends though have been supporting me to quit BF. My DH has been telling me to quit. He thinks this is the last week of BF lol.

    Def hire help. If I have twin I would have a cleaner and a nanny haha. Not sure how we can afford it though.

    @Minib: i don't think it is the formula. It is completely normal for them to fuss and uncomfortable to poop. Gelati might have a better insight into this, though. DS is colic so everyday is a battle until he poops. I am using Nan comfort which supposes to be gentle on tummy. But it doesn't make any difference for a colic baby. Anyway, i am certainly switching formula, I just want the specialist to tell us which one to try. We suspect the tin of formula that we opened late last week si bad. We opened a new tin now and see if he will stop pooping at/after every feed. It has been very disruptive for his night sleep in the last few days. Not that it isn't common in the past! However, this is annoyed because i have to wake him up to change his dirty nappy in the middle of the night. The strange thing is that he is refusing his first morning feed at 7am. We forced some down because that's 6 hrs without food. By 9am, he is screaming hunger! That's just annoying.

    @bbhope I'm using nan comfort as well. If you feel like the tin is bad did you open a new one? My friend recommended nan comfort so that's what I've been using but honestly have barely used much and I can see Bub poops less whenever we use it. When solely breastfeeding ds has no problems with popping and does at least 2-3 a day. So really I don't know cos being breastfed he has no problems pooping. When he gets even 30ml formula it goes down to 1-2 so I wonder now today that I'm bottle feeding and he's gotten 90ml formula already how he's gonna go. The good thing is I can see exactly how much he needs. So far pumped 3 times today and have gotten 160, 120 then 65. It will also be nice to see how much I can pump a day. If he can handle formula ok I'm gonna stop breastfeeding. I think I've had enough.

    @Minib - how's the lump feeling? Yeh friends mean well and aren't pushy or anything and some had low supply too but everyone I know seems to be able to feed to at least 6 months and one friend with low supply pumped for 1 year 😁 So I guess indirectly I feel pressure too. Like I'm just being lazy or not trying hard enough. I think we are the hardest on ourselves.

    Yes, opened a new tin. He is still pooping at every feed but hopefully just takes a day to adjust it back. With the formula, DS goes once a day before this pooping event.
