a breastfeeding journey begins...

I started the pumping on day 4.On that time 'the makcik urut' just massage me for 3 days.Only after that my milk has smoothly came out.

Alhamdulillah my swing helps me a lot.The pumping session normally about 4 times a day(early morning, 12 pm,5pm,and before bedtime ). Each pumping session I could get 8oz.Will keep this stock when I come back to work soon. But now,I have storage problems.Hmmm...my fridge is not enough to store my ebm.Almost full already.Should I buy deep freezer?hmmm....nak letak kat mana plak deep freezer tu.Alahai...will think about it.
Or the best way is...not to cook(alasan la tu..).So the storage can be allocated to my ebm.

Actually this moment are most enjoyable and I really excited to do it.Really missed the previous pumping session(Umar and Muadz). I'll try to give Arrazi an exclusive and full breastfeeding as long as I could. Same like his brothers, 2 years ++. InsyaAllah.

To increase breastmilk I normally consume(in the confinement period)
1. blended oats with hot milo - morning
2. red dates (boiled) - afternoon or anytime
3. vivix from shaklee (helps me to recover too and built new cells) - 1 or 2 teaspoon per day
4. barley drink


ebm stock - day 19th

I think my ebm stock is not as many as other nursing moms.But still syukur with the rezeki'that was given to me and my baby. Rasanya stock ckin lg banyak....takpe kin...will beat you one day...hehehe.....
