Baby C’s appetite and demand for milk are becoming stronger each day. My breastmilk is insufficient to satiate her ravenous appetite. I now have to increase the formula to keep her tummy full. From 2 ounces of formula a day, she’s now drinking around 4-5 ounces of formula on top of my breastmilk. My breastmilk is still not a lot. Today is the first day I actually expressed out my milk to see how much milk I have and sadly, I only managed to milk out 2.5 ounces from both breasts after painstakingly sitting and pumping till my hands ached for around 20 minutes.
Baby C also tends to suckle at full force for a short 5-10 minutes and then she will drift back into slumberland and then treats my teat like her pacifier instead of suckling for milk. Consequently, she drinks very little and gets hungry pretty fast.
I have asked hubby to buy some raw papayas and I shall get my CL to boil some papaya soup tomorrow in the hope of boosting my milk supply. I also intend to get some Milkmaid tea to drink. I heard Milkmaid tea is really effective in boosting milk supply. Does anyone know where I can buy Milkmaid tea in KL?
