1. A mother milk supply may vary a difference times of the day.Most mothers feel fuller in the morning and less full in the evening.If the mother milk supply seems to be lower in the evening, more frequence breastfeeding will satisfy the babies needs.
2. Babies seems hungry an hour or after being fed.Human milk digest more quickly than formula milk.So, the breastfed babies need to be fed more frequently than the formula fed baby.
Everyday I met about minimum 4-5 mummies daily with breastfeeding problems. I find that nowadays many mummies are not worrying of pains during their delivery or c-section stitches. They are more worry of the breastfeeding problems they will encounter e.g blockducts, low milk supply & engorggement. As I can say 70% mummies have this problems nowadays and I think they really need support with these matter especially 1st time mummies. To make them enjoy their baby breastfeeding time and not to feel so stress with breastfeeding in their early days after their delivery and not to giveup easily.
In the olden days, the month immediately after delivery is considered a time that we've to really cares of ourselves and is call confinement period. This is because during this period the mother's physiological and mentally change. Traditional Chinese, Malays, and even some Europeans nowadays believe than when we take good of ourselves during these period, we will be healthier when we’re old.
Crying is baby’s only way of expressing his needs. However, trying to cope with a crying newborn can be a very frustrating experience for new parents. But it is very important that you approach to your crying baby with as much as calmness as possible, since he can sense your tension and may become even more irritable. Here are some of the reasons why your baby cries, so just have a look on them.
Touch is a natural expression of love, communicating warmth and security. In babies, massage helps strengthen the growing bond between mother and baby. Most babies enjoy massage, being cuddled and touched. The best time to do baby massage before feeding after their bathing and before to go to sleep (about 9pm). If at any point you sense your baby is not enjoying the massage, then stop. The massage can only be done when both mother and baby enjoying it.

Many of my clients ask me 'What should I eat to have better milk supply as these few days my supply droped a lot'.
My advise to breast feeding moms is to have adequate rest. I know it's easier said than done but try to get some sleep when your baby is sleeping as it will affect your milk supply.
Talking about food, eating fish, spinach, apples and papaya soup with fish and a vegetable called 'Pengaga' will be good to produce a better milk supply.
Many perceive confinement period as some form of "ritual" that if you did not follow, your life will fall apart. While it may not be something so critical as such, we would still recommended you to take note of some pointers from this centuries-old tradition.
