Saw some pregnant mums sharing that their bodies have produced colostrum and they are using syringes to draw the milk out. Why does this happen? I thought breastmilk only comes after bb is delivered? Any method to get colostrum to come earlier? Worried about not having enough supply, or that milk comes late....... :(
- Mama’s when does your breastmilk starts after giving birth? I have been stimulating and pumping yet no sign of colostrum or milk. Any tip for a new mama here?
I had nothing until the 3th day when the lactation consultant came and squeezed really hard it was so painful 😅 but only then a few drops came out. If you're struggling how about find help from an LC?Dee
- I am worried i might not have enough breastmilk for my baby, but also worried that if i take from donating mummies we do not know how safe is the milk. My friend suggest that i feed goat milk to my newborn if i do not have enough milk. Does anyone here do the same? As in feeding your bb goatmilk?
Yes i fed goats milk. Fresh goats milk is the best and closest to bm. It maybe a little more tedious, goats milk need to be refrigerated properly. Then after warmed up. Also they cost as much as formula. Well at least for me, when i did my calculations it came up to about the same amount. You can get it delivered to your home from the farm or you can purchase it at prime supermarket. There is also chocolate flavour. Well my lo always took the normal milk.

- Is there anything we can do to get our milk supply to come in quicker? Worried about not having any during the first few days.....Melissa Chan
