Q.

Borsmelk en net dit!

My dogtertjie is 5 maande. Ek borsvoed haar. Sy wil geen blikmelk drink nie. Ek het al NAN, NAN HA, Novalac, Similac Advance, en S26 gold probeer. Sy drink gretig aan die bottel, maar as sy proe dit is nie borsmelk nie weier sy om verder te drink en dan maak sy haar so naar met die bottel dat sy partykeer opgooi. Wat kan ek doen? Ek wil nie ophou borsvoed nie, maar dit is partykeer nodig as ek haar iewers moet los en ek het nie genoeg uitgemelkde borsmelk nie. Help asb!

Daar is eintlik geen ander oplossing op die stadium. Jou baba weier om enige ander voeding te drink. Sy wil net borsmelk drink. Dit sal nie help om enige ander voedings te probeer.

Lizzy, ek het ''n wen-strategie vir jou. Jy moet die blikmelk (verkieslik Nan-HA dis nie so ryk nie) erg verdun en baba so daaraan gewoond maak. Begin met net ''n 10e blik en 90% borsmelk. Dan 20% blik en 80% borsmelk ens ens. Doen dit elke keer vir drie dae voordat jy verander. Wanner dit 50% blik melk is behoort jy te kan oorslaan na 100% blikmelk toe. Sterkte daar!

Shame, that is a difficult situation.

What you can try to do is increase the amount of expressed milk you have.
Try expressing while you are feeding her (even though she hasn''t fed from that breast yet, you will still have enough milk for her as your body makes milk while you are busy feeding).
What also helps is if you know you will be going out, to wake up once during the early hours of hte morning to express - 3 or 4 o''clock as that is a time when you will have lots of milk to express and it will let down easily as you are relaxed.

Remember that the milk you leave for her in the cup or bottle - she will only take about 60-120ml at a time. IF she is taking more, look at hte way it is being fed to her.

Breastfed babies often reject formula as it doesn''t taste very nice in comparison.
