TB = tuberculosis? Don’t worry too much! Just trust the doctor. Maybe seek an 2nd opinion instead? Can try PD at TMC!Read more
- Hi mummies my lo is currently 10mths old and he sleeps about 11/12hr for the 24hr cycle, im constantly worried that it will affect his growth... How long usually does your lo sleeps?
You need not be worried. Its quite the opposite really. The more baby sleeps the better he can develop. As they grow their sleep pattern changes and the hours decreases...even now as adults we are supposed to have 8hrs sleep ideally and as you age it gets lesser 4-6hrs with multiple power naps in daytime 👵Zann

- I am feeling very sad and disappointed with myself. I have been breastfeeding my lo from birth now. She is 7 mth 3 wks old now. We have come a long way, I direct latch her whenever she is with me, and I pump hard at work whenever I could squeeze in time between meetings and conf calls and general work, so as to provide enough for her when she goes ifc. Couple of weeks back she fell ill and later I fell ill too. I always take a very long time to recover from stupid tiring coughs. Needing to get better, I had to take cough syrup and subseq TCM herbs. Little did I know that despite the prescribed med being safe for a lactating mom, it affected my milk supply tremendously. I stopped my med but my milk supply is not coming back. I cannot yield the same volume anymore despite stopping the med, drinking lots of water, milk and eating lactation cookies. I really feel very sad..as I wanted to give her this precious gift of bm for as long as I can. I love the bonding with her whenever she latches on.
Breastfeeding safe medicine just means that it will not affect baby if some of the medicine goes into ur bm. It may or may not cause ur milk supply to drop. I don't think it is reasonable at all to expect ur body to still be producing optimal amount of bm when u are sick and u also mentioned that it's a long draw Anne tired out cough so the body is tired and also has lesser resources to produce the bm. When u are fully recovered u may or may not be producing the original amount as ur boobs may have adjusted to the new production rate. U can try ur milk boosters (not everyone have the same and not lact cookies always work) if u know what they are or just go for a wide variety and a lot of known milk boosters and hopefully u will hit jackpot If it really drops, u can just latch less and then bond with her through other things. She will still want to be with mummy yar. There are many other first experiences that u can be there for her too so it's really ok. Don't need to be too hard on urself.
