Milk supply

Going to give birth soon and I’m afraid I might not have enough milk supply to provide my baby :( it’s so tough to breastfeed, didn’t managed to breastfeed for my #1. I wonder how some mummies managed to do it...

I can’t latch properly... milk also only started 5 days PP. I started pumping and taking lactation cookies and herbal pills. Saw an increase to the point where I can store a small amount in the freezer :) Baby still can’t drink much if I DL, so I resort to pumping and just comfort nursing when needed. You can do it! Don’t give up. I pump every 2-3 hours. Sometimes I’m so tired or I’m out that I drag to 4-5 hours.

Don't be stress. A fed baby is the most important thing. Start massaging your breast now to prepare your boobs for breastfeeding. You can Google YouTube on how to prepare/massage your breast for breastfeeding during pregnancy.

Perseverance and discipline is what makes breastfeeding journey works. Don't think so much too if you need help on breastfeeding tips,just drop me a DM on my IG @mummyJlife

Don’t think of it, I didn’t expect myself to do it too but your supply grow along with your baby. Don’t be too hard on yourself ok. It will come naturally.

I would think most mums are able to do it when we see our babies! All the best! :)
