Hana oh Hana

Tak setel lagi rupanya prob Hana ni. Ingatkan masa dh hantar gi nursery almost 2 weeks dia dh ok. Mau bottle feed tapi hati me start risau coz masa 1st week bekalkan 4 x 2oz EBM, cuma luak 2 botol tapi masuk 2nd week cuma sebotol je. Haisy.. xley jadik ni. Hati makin risau takut dia lapar. Hati ibu.. mana pernah sesaat pun stop pikirkan hal anak. Masa Aulia dulu x pernah plak de prob gini. Sebab tuh org kata setiap anak tu berbeza peelnya. Masa browse net cari info terjumpa article nih dr Kellymom.

Reverse Cycling

By Kelly Bonyata, BS, IBCLC

What is reverse cycling?

Reverse cycling is when baby nurses frequently at night and less frequently during the day.

Why do some babies reverse cycle?

* Newborns may reverse cycle in the early days or weeks simply because they have their days and nights mixed up.
* Distractible (and/or very active) babies or toddlers may nurse more at night to make up for missed or shortened nursing sessions during the day.
* If mom is very distracted or busy during the day, baby may nurse more at night to make up for missed or shortened nursing sessions, or simply to get more uninterrupted time with mom.
* If mom is away from baby during the day, baby may take just enough milk (by bottle or cup) to “take the edge off” his hunger, then wait for mom to return to get the bulk of his calories. Baby will typically nurse more often and/or longer than usual once mom returns. Some mothers encourage reverse cycling so they won’t need to pump as much milk. Reverse cycling is common for breastfeeding babies who are away from mom part of the day, especially those just starting out with the bottle.

Tips for handling reverse cycling

If baby is reverse cycling and taking very little milk when mom is away at work:

* Be patient. Try not to stress about it. Consider it a compliment - baby prefers you!
* Use small amounts of expressed milk per bottle so there is less waste.
* If you’re worrying that baby can’t go that long without more milk, keep in mind that some babies sleep through the night for 8 hours or so without mom needing to worry that baby is not eating during that time period. Keep an eye on wet diapers and weight gain to assure yourself that baby is getting enough milk.
* Ensure that baby has ample chance to nurse when you’re together.
* If you prefer to pump less milk while you’re away from baby, you may choose to encourage baby to reverse cycle.

Owh.. mama sgt terharu sbb Hana lagi prefer mama dari any bottle or teats!! Tapi as a mom, mama masih risau Hana x dapat khasiat secukupnya masa mama gi keje. Hana budak baik la.. xmo mama risau sebab stok mama ngam2 untuk bekal ke nursery next day. Hana jangan risau yer.. mama +ve susu mama sentiasa cukup utk Hana selama mana Hana nak minum. Apapun mama tetap tabahkan hati ajar Hana bottle feed at least sekali sehari dalam masa 8am-3pm walopun dugaan maha berat bila tengokkan Hana menangis sampai tersedu-merayu mintak nenen sob..sob.. Bukanlah niat mama nk menyeksa Hana cuma mama nak biasakan Hana. Petang & malam mama bg Hana direct feeding, the best stimulation utk increase production mama so that susu utk Hana sentiasa cukup.

Mama tetap akan try bagi sampai la Hana terbiasa.. kalo masa dgn mama Hana x nk botol mama x kisah, lagi suka! Mama ajar Hana minum thru bottle so that kalo ada apa2 emergency Hana masih boleh minum stok susu mama. Hana jaga diri elok2 masa mama gi work ok. Kita sama2 belajar.. Hana belajar minum thru botol, mama belajar sabar layan kerenah anak2.. :)
