    They're called afterpains and they do increase in intensity the more children you have so it's possible you didn't feel them the first time round.

    Hi,

    I do have similar issue. Stomach ache occur sometimes during feeding. Always need to run to toilet right after feeding. What I did was rubbing some "po sum on medicated oil" on my belly button. It works for me. My mom said is because of "wind".

    really? "wind" then should we be eating more ginger?!? Haven't had ginger with rice for a long time as it gives me pimples... what do you think?

    Hmmm, I am not sure. However, I noticed my belly button was protruded towards the end of my pregnancy, and ever since then I get stomach ache pretty often.

    hmmm...If you don't like to consume ginger, you may boil ginger water and bath. Another option is my mom will boil lemon grass with chicken soup. This is very good to get ride of 'wind' too.

    thanks mavislohsp will try the lemon grass with chicken soup and see if that helps. the pains get pretty bad, especially if my baby feeds a long time (40mins), but at least it is "normal" so I know i'm not suffering from something weird!
