Breastfeeding, a journey, an everyday learning process, a sacrifice for both parents but most especially to the mom, but all in all its a priceless gift wrapped with love and joy.
Before getting the hang of it, its a challenge for me every day, every hour and every demand of lil boy. And yes for the first 2 weeks I pumped till my hands get numbed, just to make sure i have enough supply for the next hour or so, he's still learning to latch at that time. And to increase and established my milk supply i ate lots of soup and pump pump pump, from half oz, to 1 oz till i got that 4 oz per pump was really one of the blessed moments in my life. Raine learned to latch properly at 3 weeks, from then on till today I exclusively direct feed him.
I also experience an oversupply of milk and an almost empty breast for the hungry baby, the sore nipples, and the pain that goes with it that makes me shed a tear for the first two months of breastfeeding, thinking this too shall pass. Sleepless nights, feeding every hour or every 30 mins without the burping time, all in, there's no more time to sleep, again this to shall pass. The truth is, it's not easy to breastfeed but its all worth it.
Our breastfeeding journey continues with the support of my family, my husband and of course the free milk supply as a blessing from the Lord. And through this everyday journey I learned not only to value each drop of milk but breastfeeding is not only a choice but an obligation not only for the mom but for the dad also. Without my husband support and cheer, I wouldn't withstand those painful, no sleep and no rest days/nights. Taking breastfeeding as an obligation we (hubby and I) make sure we supply enough milk for Raine, with that comes lactation massage, vitamins, healthy food and reading researches, and yes who says it's simple and easy. and so, kudos to all the breastfeeding couples
What makes it worthy? its priceless (yeah free milk supply=savings) kidding aside its really priceless = healthy and happy baby= happy mom and dad= happy and blessed family! I guess I'll have another post about the joy of breastfeeding...
P.S I'm breastfeeding Raine while typing this..
