28 weeks pregnant mother

Question: Dear All. I am at my third trimester. Should i be lactating colostrum from now on, which indicates that we are ready to produce milk? Has everyone experienced lactation signal during end of pregnancy? If m not producing colostrum now, does that indicate i cant produce enough milk after delivery?

Answer: leaking is normal dear and is generally nothing to be worried about. It happens as yor body is preparing for delivery and lactation in advance. The liquid is known as colustrum and leaks even after delivery. If the leakage is a lot,you might need to wear breast pads that will help in keeping the breast dry. Do not worry.It just means that your body is ready for lactation during this period.You will not need any medications for the same. you are just in your 28 weeks dear. normally leaking starts from third trimester.
Answer: Hi dear.... It differs for different women.. as for my experience I did not lactate colostrum in my 3rd trimester... But only after delivery.... Then I had my lactating started and I fed my baby with exclusive breast feeding for 6 months and my baby had enough milk... So don't worry as of now.. have positive thoughts... Happy pregnancy

Question: My baby is 1 month old now and he always expects nipple to his month.... does that mean am I not producing sufficient milk for him?? How do i know he s getting enough milk? How to chk In My body that I have enough milk production??
Answer: Hello! if you notice these signs, your baby should be getting enough milk:Your baby is feeding at least six to eight times a day .Breastfeeding feels comfortable and you are free of pain in your breast and nipple after the first few sucks, once your milk has let down .Your breasts feel softer and less full after feeds.Your nipple looks the same shape as when the feed began, or is slightly elongated .Your baby looks a healthy colour, and has firm skin that bounces right back if you pinch it gently.Your baby is alert when he is awake, and readily asks for feeds.Your baby is wetting two or three wet nappies in the first 48 hours, which becomes more frequent. Once he's over five days old, he should have at least six wet nappies every 24 hours. Your baby's wee should be pale and odourless .You can see your baby swallow while he is feeding, and he seems to be latched on properly. You'll be able to hear him swallowing more clearly too, once your milk has come in.Your baby changes rhythm while sucking, and pauses during feeds. He should start feeding again when he's ready, and come off your breast spontaneously when he's finished.Your baby’s poos are a yellowy-mustard colour by the time he’s five days old .

Question: hii all my baby has completed 8 months.. till now I am giving breast milk only.. but now a days at night time she is not getting enough milk. I am staying at Bangalore.. can u give heritage milk to my baby?? if s how many times can I give and how much??
Answer: If you breastfeed it's really good but any other milk for drinking purposes is absolutely not advisable . Either breast milk or formula milk or combination of both. nothing beyond this. And yes you don't need to feed much. Give breast milk when baby wants a sleep or Max of 3-4 times during day time along with solids and in night you have sufficient left to feed.

Question: I used to produce upto 600 ml milk a day till last week. Suddenly it has reduced so much that it is hardly 250 ml in a day. I have tried taking medication like lactare capsules and lactonic granules. I drink 4ltrs of water everyday and have a healthy diet. Inspite of all this I produce very less milk. I have PCOS, I wonder if that could be reason for low breastmilk. If so what can be done to restore milk production. Desperately need help with this.
Answer: Hi, no second though over consultation with your gynec or at the most endocrinologist as PCOD is definitely associated with low breast milk.
