During admission, I was only able to express out 20ml breast milk 2 hourly for both sides. However, my baby needs around 70ml @ 3 hourly in 1st day, 110 days @ 3 hourly in 3rd day. I would never ever managed to catch up such volume. Hence, my husband and I made a wrong decision by top up formula for our baby.

The situation become even worst as I ate and drank a lot of herbs soup, black dates…
