August is a breastfeeding month, I want to share my journey even its too late 🙂
I don’t have any pictures taken when I am breastfeeding my baby by that time but I have a lot of memories and great experiences while doing it.
Today, my Little Kulit will be turning 4 on the next two months. Time really flies, I still remember like it was yesterday when I was still pregnant and about to give birth. And I am proud to say that I belong to a breastfeeding circle of moms.
When I gave birth and he put on my chest I know by that I am already a mom and I want his first milk will be coming from me, since I am still groggy by that time because of the anesthesia I instructed the nurse that I will nurse him in the recovery area. After 15 minutes I was already in the recovery area and they gave me my son, lucky he was able latch properly on my breast and he was able to get the colustrum which is baby’s first milk. Afterwards he was brought again in the nursery area.
I must admit that I am not a full breastfeeding mom; he was in the nursery room for two days on his third day he was already with me and the nurse instructed me how to breastfeed properly.
At first I was hesitant, I am afraid what if he doesn’t like my milk or if I don’t have a milk and the worse thing in my mind is what if masakit , even my mom told me to hold properly my baby baka daw mahulog ko if masaktan ko. I have a low tolerance when it comes to pain.
But God lead me the way, I was properly breastfeed my baby, I have a lot of milk which I didn’t expect,  I was able to handle the pain for three days.
When it comes to breastfeeding everything went smooth. It’s just that when I go out I need to have an extra breast pad, and if we go out with my baby I have to make it sure that there is a comfortable breastfeeding station.
And I am proud to say that I am exclusive breastfeeding mom for 3.5 months and when I need to go back to the work my break time is to breast pump and for two years my baby is mixed formula and breastfeed.
Breastfeeding helps me a lot to be more confident as a mom and my son growing up as healthy boy.
