Pening jugak nak mencari formula milk yg bersesuaian nih..
masa kat NICU diorang kasik Lactogen, tapi i’m not happy with it. his stool nampak a bit watery n berketul2. tapi i beli la jugak lactogen sebagai back up bila dah discharged tu.. first week kat rumah dia mmg fully breastfeed, but when his weight turun mendadak tu, i did top up a bit with lactogen.
tak berpuas hati dgn lactogen, i bought Anmum plak.. first week minum mmg ok.. his stool pun nampak normal jer.. but bila masuk jer 2nd week, dia dh start nangis2 tiap kali membuang n his stool bertambah watery.. he also poops everytime i gave him formula. bila kasik breast milk ok pulak. my SIL cakap mesti sbb x sesuai susu tu..
so off me go to the shop and get Snow pulak.. sempat minum sehari jer susu snow tuh. terus cirit birit.. haish.. kebetulan nurse datang, dia suggest NAN pulak. emaknya ni pun pegi lah beli NAN.. tetap tidak berkesan!!
at that time mmg depend on breastmilk jer laa.. but keadaan becoming worst bila his weight terus turun masa weekly check up with his paed kat HSB tu. doctor dah buat surat utk admit dia.. they want to monitor his weight n feed him through tube. saya mmg tak berpuas hati laa bab nak masukkan tube tu. enough with the pain he had for the first 2 weeks of his life!.. lgpun dia bukannya tak nak minum, tapi blom jumpa susu bersesuaian jer.. plus his having cirit birit as well, sbb tu he is losing weight.
nasib baik masa tu Dato dr Teh (Head of Paed Dept) ada. i ask her if they can give me few more days. i promise kalau his weight tak naik jugak after this, then they can admit him. so, she allows us to go home.. :) dah jadik mcm tu, i went back to lactogen laa.. walopon he still pooping every feeding, tapi at least tak de la cirit birit.. Alhamdulillah after a week, his gaining weight. so, diorang x jadik ler admit.. :)
after few weeks with lactogen, my milk supply bertambah kurang. instead of 2-3 kali top up per day, dah increase to 5 times per day. lepastu his stool bertambah watery n kadang2 tu mcm cirit jugak.. then perut mmg kembung sentiasa. tak tau dah nk buat mcm mana, i think its time to change the formula milk to soya base. drpd symptom2 tu he probably have lactose intolerance (main agak2 sendiri jer nih).
so Isomil it is.. Alhamdulillah masalah pembuangannya selesai.. his stool pun soft n yellow/brownish jer.. perut pun dah tak kembung lagi..
but 1 of the doctor in HSB told my friend (her son has quite similar problem with Z^ch) that soy based milk x brp bagus compared to cow’s base.. banyak ler kekurangannya.. hmmm.. i read the content, lebih kurang sama jerr.. then tak berpuas hati, i asked paed at KMC, dia ckp mmg ler dulu2 punya soy base milk tak bagus sangat.. but isomil dah pun di advancekan and has been added with all sort of ingredients utk setanding dgn cow’s base..hmmm.. ok la tu kot.. we have been using Isomil for more than a month now..
however, being me, still x berpuas hati.. search more info from internet. mmg rata2 ckp soy base tu tak bagus sgt. you shouldn’t gave soy base milk to your infant unless mmg dah tak der choice lain dah..
so, pagi semalam, just being curious, saya pun gave him anmum. just ONCE nk tgk ok ke tak.. sekali, tgh hari tu terus dia cirit birit…mmg kuar mcm air jer.. WAAAAAAAaaaaaa…!! I am sorry sayangggg… nampaknya mmg confirm he is lactose intolerance..
plan kalau harini tak baik2 jugak, mmg kena bawak g pead jer la.. Alhamdulillah dah ok skit. berak2 tu dh kurang laa.. and his stool pun dah more solid n soft dah.. but his tummy still unsettled laa.. kembung2 lagi.. huhuhu.. kesian anak mama.. I AM SO SORRY DEAR….
hopefully kat ireland ada la Isomil nih.. or any soy base or lactose free milk.. sana mmg tak bnyk sgt choice.. mmg mummy kene angkut stock bebanyak ler sbg bekal bwk balik sana nanti..
updated - OMG! apesal Isomil naik harga dgn mendadak? last 2 week beli baru RM53 ke RM56 ntah.. today dah jadik RM63++.. but with new added formula katanya.. hopefully Z^ch x de alahan ler dgn new ingredients tu..
