Back to Work - BreastFeeding Diary Week 1

   I never thought I would love to breastfeed my kids, kasi nga when I got pregnant with Ate kyla I was only 16 young and concious of my body, in short takot akong magkaroon ng sagging boobs! Haha! Ayoko nga! Tapos marami pang ngsasabi na pag magpapadede ka malolosyang ka so mas lalo akong nabahala.

This picture taken in July 2006 few weeks after I gave birth to kyla.

  Hanggang ngayon naaalala ko pa kung paano ako umiyak nung sinabi ni papa na ayaw pumayag ng pedia na mgbottle feed si Ate kyla kasi baka daw hindi magustuhan ng baby stomach niya ang formula milk baka daw mag Diarrhea so I had no option but to breasfeed her, at mas lalo akong umiyak nung sinabi ni papa na 6 months daw akong magpapadede.

  In my mind "HELL NO!" yan ang sinasabi ko haha, pero pag nanay ka na pala hindi na yung pang sariling mong ikakabuti yung iisipin mo lagi nang top priority yung baby mo, mantakin mu yun lagpas na ng 4 years old si Kyla nagdedede pa sya sakin. It was a very good experience though and I love it so so much! Breastfeeding her means bonding time for us!

(Kita naman sa katawan ni kyla ang effect ng breastfeeding! Super healthy sya)

  When I gave birth with Niela I did'nt have any hesitations at all but to breastfeed her even if I was already working by then yun nga lang my supply was not that much kaya me formula milk din si niela and I breastfed her for 2 years and 3 months.

When I gave birth to Kael medyo madalang na mgdede si niela sya na tumigil mag-isa but there are times that she would ask for it pa din she'd say "Nini, dede kiss lang" then she'd kiss my boobs pero minsan nagdedede din haha.

  Now I am Exclusively Breatfeeding Kael even if I am working. Last Monday night I came back to work, I was sad and mangiyak ngiyak coz given the chance I do not want to work na I'd rather be a stay at home mom. Mas gusto kong mag-alaga nalang ke kyla, niela at kael pero dahil kailangan kong magwork work work for them tiis ganda muna ako for now, haha.

I am happy and blessed with more milk supply this time parang ke kyla lang ang dami dami kong milk and I am hoping na magpatuloy pang dumami ang milk ko. It was a big help as well that I bought an electric pump mas marami akong naiuuwing breastmilk for kael everyday.

On my 1st day I went home with 15oz of breastmilk.

2nd day I went home with 15oz of breastmilk again

but on my
3rd day I went home with only 13oz medyo onti kasi hindi ako gaanong nakapaglactate dahil nakatulog ako nung lunch time ko haha, d ko din napicturan.

On my 4th day I went home early so I did'nt get the chance to pump milk at work, pag-uwi ko sa bahay nakapag pump naman ako and I got 9oz, after that unli latch na kami ni kael through out the day pag medyo matagal sleep niya ngpapump din ako naka 4oz din ako so total of 13 oz ulit.

 On my 5th day I got 16 oz! Ang pinakamarami sa lahat!

It's a blessing na marami akong milk mas less din sa gastos at super healthy si kael. Nakakatuwa din at binigyan ako ni God ng katuwang sa buhay na matiyaga, supportive at marunong mag-alaga sa mga bata. I know it's a big challenge for didi lalo at pang gabi ang work ko tapos exclusively breastfeed pa si kael, he would need to wake up from time to time to get a bottle of milk from the fridge, have it thawed, make sure it's warm before he feeds kael. Kudos to you Didi for doing everything for us. I salute you! I love you so so much!

Are you a breastfeeding/working mom as well? How do you handle it?

Please share your thoughts!

Lots of love!

The Bootleg Beatles are back in Manila!

The Bootleg Beatles are back in Manila!

Since their inception in 1980 the band has performed hundreds of gigs across the globe, earning themselves an amazing reputation along the way. George Martin himself described the Bootleg Beatles experience as “A terrific show”, whilst the Mail On Sunday hailed their “Mind- boggling accuracy”.
Neil Harrison (former John Lennon); Andre Barreau (George Harrison) and David Catlin-Birch (Paul McCartney) met in 1979 when they were all cast in the hit West-End production, Beatlemania. When the show finished its run the band, knowing the repertoire inside out, decided to continue performing it and thus The Bootleg Beatles were born in 1980, along with the entire tribute genre.

What started as 4 musicians with black polo necks and a wig has evolved into The Bootleg Beatles’ lauded show which combines note-perfect renditions of Beatles repertoire, spectacular costume changes and a visually stunning video backdrop. The Bootleg Beatles faithfully re-create 6 phases of the Beatles meteoric rise from a basement (The cavern in Liverpool) to a rooftop (The famous Apple concert in 1969) via Shea Stadium, Sgt Pepper and the Magical mystery tour.

After 31 years portraying John in the Bootleg Beatles, Neil Harrison announced his intetion to retire from performing in January 2011. Following an intensive audition process, and much media speculation, in July 2011 the Bootleg Beatles announced Adam Hastings would don the wigs and glasses in the band. His debut performances with the Bootleg Beatles have been met with rave reviews from fans and critics alike and last July 2014 Andre Barreau retired and after many auditions Stephen Hill was chosen to take on the role of George Harrison together with Steve White (Paul McCartney) & Ringo Starr (Gordon Elsmore)

Formed from the original cast of London’s West End hits show ‘Beatlemania’ , TheBootlegBeatles have become ‘an institution’ in their own right with their note-perfect recreation of hits from every era of the world’s most famous songbook.
Every tiny detail is meticulously covered from costumes to authentic period instruments; from the ‘Liverpudlian’ banter to their ‘inflectionperfect’ vocalmimicry. But it’s not only their sound that is soa uthentic; they bear anu ncanny resemblance to the Fab Four. As one reviewer recently said…“It’s not John Paul George and Ringo…but you simply won’t believe it.”

There’s never been a better time to immerse yourself in the magic of the Bootleg Beatles – don’t miss a show that was described as “Off-the-scale fabulous” by BBC Radio’s Chris Evans, and “Flawless!” by Mojo Magazine.  You’ll love them – Yeah Yeah Yeah!

The world’s first and finest tribute band, The Bootleg Beatles, continue to thrill audiences performing their acclaimed homage to the Fab Four. The tribute band are touring the Philippines throughout July and will be stopping off in Manila on July 12, 2016 – (venue to be announced), next stop Davao on July 15, 2016 at SMX Convention Center, & and last stop will be in Cebu on July 16, 2016 at Waterfront Hotel. Tickets will be available soon.
