Engorged!!!
Hey mummy may I know the solution to engorged breast? I tried the cold cabbage method but it only gave me temporary relief.
Drink loads of water! 100plus or H-Two-O works for me too. I find that usually when I have engorged breast or clogged ducts is because I’ve been having too much “GOOD” food already HAHAHAHA!
Pump regularly! Perhaps 2-3 hourly. Dont skip pumping sessions and try not to go longer than 3 hours of not pumping. Else it will be engorged and i know the feeling so painful! Cold cabbage and cold c

Visit LC, they will help u to squeeze out all the block ducts!! It's super pain but super effective, and continue to pump every 3 hour to avoid engorgement!
Super Mum
Cold cabbage can reduce your milk supply so don't overdo it! You can use cold or hot compress, massage in circular motion. If the lumps become red and if you feel feverish then see a doctor.

Milk Supply
Hey mummy, my baby fully latching and drinking more frequently every hour I'm worried my milk supply has lessen. Is there anything that will help with milk production?
Super Mum
If baby is fully latching, no worries on milk supply dropping. Baby's frequent feeding will tell your body to produce more milk to make up to the demand. Just keep hydrated.

Lady V
Hi mummies, is bikini waxing safe during preggy? Wanna know cause really cant see what happening down there and didn't want husbands help to shave 😅
If you're not experiencing sensitive skin, it's safe to do waxing
Yes it is safe. I have been going since pre-pregnancy, but stopped during my first trimester, as the doc didnt advise me to go for it. Plus, the place dont do it for ladies in the first trimester too.

If using wax and not laser it’s pretty safe

I was told IPL was unsafe. You can check with your gynae first
Acid Reflux!
Any tips to keep acid reflux at Bay? I'm at 31 weeks and the burning feeling up my throat kept making me throw up 😞 would love to know if any of you mummies manage to counter this. Thanks
sit up at least for an hour after meal or snack.. have gaviscon if acid reflex happens, if not just leave it
I ate gaviscon. I suffer frm acid reflux too.. tried milk n everything else but it still made me throw up. Gaviscon is my saviour!
Drink warm milk with honey it helps a lot
take smaller frequent meals.. i don't get acid reflux most of the time but when i do have, gaviscon does works for me.
Gaviscon works for me. Try to elevate head when sleeping
