Relactation?

I've been discharged yesterday alhamdulillah. Felt much better now, physically and mentally especially after seeing the two boys. Firas dah boleh berjln ke sana ke mari, dah boleh main, dah boleh gelak. Kata husband, sepjg ketiadaan saya dia cuma 'terkapok' dlm dakapan husband, langsung tak boleh diletak, langsung taknak main dgn org lain, etc. Rindu sangat pd mama yer sayang :)

After nearly 2 weeks of not nursing firas directly, my milk supply drops tremendously to only 1oz yesterday. Tried to pump at the hospital during morning on the day i was discharged, but only few drops coming out, hence i resorted to hand expressed, and the total collected is only 1oz. Really sad but the other part of meeself was some sort of already redha with it. As far as i remember, i pumped only once a day during the days i was warded (before the surgery). Monday i went for surgery, and only wednesday i had the energy to pump again, that time i got only 6oz in total. Thursday i pumped and got 3 oz, and friday (the discharged day) i got 1oz.
Besar sungguh dugaan Allah kali ni.

Last night, i tried to bf directly and firas didnt seem to get enough. As such i supplement with ebm once throughout the night. Today, i also supplement with ebm once, and i tried to feed him with solid as much as possible :p Opps dia dah upgraded from finely blended puree to normal rice ok. I fed him with rice and chicken soup today and he simply loves it! Malam ni, i dont know yet but i have the feeling of having to top up with ebm again since my breast feels empty all day long. I'm one unhappy mom definitely :(

Nevertheless, the journey is still ongoing, and i tried not to think too much about it. Mungkin ada hikmah disebaliknya. What i can do now is try not to feel too depress about it, drink loads of plain water day and night, and berdoa pada Dia moga rezeki firas masih panjang lagi. And yes starting from tomorrow i shall continue eating white lobak hoping it will boost the supply.

pray for me my dear friends....i feel very sad indeed :(

boleh bfeed lagi yati, but it takes a while utk susu tu bertambah. i experienced it earlier this year, masa kene outstation berderet2..igt tak yg time kite punye breastpump part hilang masa kat philippines?? huhuhu..

jgn give up, teruskan lactate as many time as possible utk boost up EBM level & supplement with solid food/formula milk so that firas x lapar. keep on to avoid susu kering.

like myself, few weeks gak nak dapat balik 'let down' tu. now EBM dah up balik utk zafyra's reverse cycle (dah nak masuk 17 mo ni!) be strong!

julie- doc mmg x kasik pose seminggu dua ni takut gastric recur.

belum give up lagi, cuma a bit terkilan when thinking of having to top up with formula one day nanti. Mmg now kite try to nurse him as much possible, and kasik solid bebyk so that tayah guna ebm :p
