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!
Nini!
