Mil asked me to stop bm cos last few days when i not ard, she giving fm, she felt that fm giving my girl to look more chubby. These days i m back n started back on bm, she feel my girl slim down alr?♀️
Older gen are like that. They are not educated on breast milk benefits.
The reasoning is funny. Lol. But explain it nicely to your MIL. If you have BM in thr fridge you can explain how to thaw and when to give but if it is a lil bit complicated for your MIL to understand then you might want to consider mix feeding.Read more
Sorry to hear that. BM is still the best for babies! Chubby babies don't mean they are healthier. As long as the baby is at normal weight and height for his/her age, it's ok. Many ppl don't understand that. Pls be more patient and carry on Mummy. You're doing great!Read more
Can mix. Morning and afternoon can give bm then when u want bb to sleep through use fm. Don't need to fight with her jus do that u feel is right.
Explain to ur mil nicely that BM is beneficial to babies due to its antibodies content which is absent in fm. Babies need it to build up immunity system. Can do mixed feeding if weigh growth is a concern. Ask ur hubby to explain to her as well.Read more
Just explain Grannies grew up and they are taught FM is better than BM
I just explain that BM has the antibodies to build baby's immunity. So it's important for baby to drink BM. I have to feed both though, coz not enough BM. :(
You are baby's mother not her.. Feed what is good for baby
Talk to her nicely if not talk to your husband
Just explain to your mil nicely or ask your husband to talk to her.
- May I know when to stop giving formula? My daughter is 15 months old now, don’t know if I should stop giving formula, give fresh milk instead?Anonymous
- Hi all , I do not have enough breast milk for my 7 days baby . Is it okay that sometimes I gave my baby breast milk sometimes give formula milk ? Is there any side effect for baby ?Anonymous
- Any newborn mummies experienced feeding breast milk and baby is constantly pooping then asking for more feeds? I’m feeding breast milk and formula concurrently because I feel that my breast milk is causing baby to have diarrhoea(???) She’s only 21 days old but is on 90 ml of formula and hungry for milk again in less than 2 hrs!!! Is it normal and will she be over fed?
Perfectly normal. Heh. My baby could poop 4x/day, and even if she pooped just after drinking, she would be hungry again immediately. Just respond to your baby’s cues:) when baby cries, go through the list of all the needs.. hungry/tired/scared/soiled diaper. One of them is bound to be correctKristal Ng
