Hi buchokoy, it's been 9mos. already and I thank God for your life. I feel grateful to see you grow each day and see your progress. I'm blessed to see those milestones of yours together with your kuya. It's not easy especially that you are tandem breastfeeding with kuya and you both know how to be selfish and get jealous of each other now, but still, I see that both of you love to play with each other and I know that you'll be the best of friend as you grow. It's not a smooth journey for all of us but I know that this season shall pass and we have God as our guide and pillar to all of this. Always remember that itay and inay love you and kuya 😘😘👶🧒💙💙👨‍👩‍👦‍👦

  • RESOURCE REVIEW: CDC BREASTFEEDING WEBSITE⁣
⁣
The two handouts in the picture above are from pdf files directly from the website entitled:⁣
📌Storage and preparation of breast milk⁣
📌How to keep your breast pump clean⁣
⁣
A lot of you have asked me to review how to store breast milk, so now you have a legit cheat-sheet! The lactation consultants (#ibclcs) and nurses at my hospital given out these exact fliers. They are simple, straightforward, and easy to read. More information is included on the website about exact temperatures for milk storage and times allowances at each temperature. There is also a list of FAQs + answers like “what are recommendations for properly storing breast milk while flying?”.⁣
⁣
The CDC breastfeeding site also includes statistics and reports cards 📊 for the USA if you are curious about that kind of thing (e.g. what is the rate of exclusive breastfeeding in your state?). It provides links to resources for the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) and other evidence based resources and guidelines.⁣
⁣
Enjoy! And definitely consider printing those fliers from the CDC website for your patients (and yourself too!). ||#docshelpmamas⁣

  • The presence of a tongue or lip tie can create difficulties with a breastfeeding relationship and journey.⁠
⁠
Some moms are able to continue to nurse with no issues and a tie being present in her baby's mouth, however a tie may cause issues for other moms who might consider revision of the tie to aid in successful breastfeeding.  Not only that, a tongue or lip tie can have long term effects on a child and his or her oral development.⁠
⁠
The infographic lists signs and symptoms that your baby may have a tongue or lip tie.  If you suspect a tie, consider an evaluation by a lactation professional, SLP, or provider who specializes in tie revisions.

  • After I gave birth to the twins I put in a verbal complaint about the lack of support and discouragement I received from the midwives, nurses and paediatricians on the maternity ward, regarding me breastfeeding the twins. I can hand on heart say, the first few weeks of the twins lives mentally, completely and utterly fucked my head up, and a HUGE contribution to that was with the pressure to formula feed from staff that were meant to be helping and supporting me to breastfeed and all they wanted me to do was push formula. I recently read something online from another twin mum at the same hospital as me, basically going through the exact same thing I did and when I read it I cried. I know I am breastfeeding the twins and it didn’t stop me from doing what I desired, but I still feel like the wounds from such a rough time haven’t healed, and the fact that another mum has had to go through that makes me really angry. After my verbal complaint, I was hoping for some improvement at my local hospital, especially for twin mums, it seems the maternity ward are not well equipped with knowledge or information to be able support twin/triplet mums that desire to breastfeed. It is not fair to add more stress and hardship to any new Mums about how they want to feed their babies, whether it be formula or breast, it’s such a highly emotional time and whatever any new Mum wants to do, should be 100% ok and 100% supported! I feel like I want to do something about it but I have no idea what 😂 any ideas? What was all of your experiences like, after you gave birth whether you wanted to breastfeed or formula feed, and had one or multiple babies? Did you feel supported and encouraged? I would love to hear the good and the bad, for breastfeeding and formula mums ❤️ I know Instagram has a bad wrap but everyone here has fully supported me breastfeeding whether they have breastfed or formula fed themselves, for which I will forever be grateful to you all ❤️ as I’ve said before any mums struggling please drop me a DM, or speak with @kathrynstaggibclc who is incredible ❤️

  • I breastfeed. 
Not Because I think I am better. 
Not because I think less of formula feeding moms. 
Not because I want attention. 
Not because I want to show my breasts to others. .
I breastfeed. 
Because I couldn’t imagine it any other way. 
Because my child wants to be nourished from me.
Because this is what nature intended. 
Because this was the right choice for my family. .
.
Today looking down while feeding my sweet baby I realized my other boob leaked into a heart and it’s just the perfect reminder to why I choose to exclusively nurse.

  • When I asked my husband to take this photo in the middle of a classy Italian wedding, he looked confused. I could sense his discomfort as he mumbled “a feeding photo?”. My husband has always supported breastfeeding, but as someone who really values privacy, he might have preferred not drawing so much attention to my breasts.⁣
⁣
I don’t blame him. Breastfeeding was never part of our parenting plans. We didn’t have any goals or expectations. For us, breastfeeding was just what the name says: feeding from a breast!⁣
⁣
That first latch however, changed everything. Without any help or guidance, my baby climbed up my chest and started sucking. I felt a mixture of emotions too complex to accurately put in words. After experiencing the beautiful yet brutal separation of birth, breastfeeding re-joined us, each time! So we carried on. Beyond our blank expectations, through challenges bigger than I could imagine, against all odds. But I never told my husband how I felt.⁣
⁣
To be my child’s comfort when he falls and hurts himself, when he feels shy, scared or overwhelmed, when he’s tired or bored. To quench his thirst during heatwaves, to put him to sleep easily and peacefully, to nourish him when food doesn’t appeal... I could give him a cuddle, a glass of water, or his favourite snack, of course, but I choose to breastfeed.⁣
⁣
Breastfeeding is the way we bond, it’s me surrendering to this unconditional love, feeling lost in the moment, looking in his eyes, stopping, having a break. I much prefer the American term “nursing”. It goes far beyond the nourishment it STILL provides my son, or the reduced risks of various illnesses for us both. For me, it’s a relationship.⁣
⁣
Perhaps some people looked at us with disgust that evening. Maybe they felt slightly uncomfortable like I once did, not knowing where to look. But if we choose to hide under covers, in toilets, or inside our houses... if we force them to stop before they (or us) are ready, it will always be a taboo. ⁣
⁣
So this is my “failed” attempt at a feeding photo! And this is why I wanted to capture this moment. Because THIS is us in our HAPPIEST OF PLACES. And because it’s normal, it’s healthy and it’s love ❤️

  • I haven’t talked about breastfeeding in awhile but I wanted to update that things are still going so good over here. I am loving it so much more this time around and most likely because I feel more confident and equipped for this. My supply has been “just enough” and it is finally becoming “more than enough” so the freezer stash has started growing again. 🙌🏻

  • Graham has become a full blown clinger these last few days. We haven’t been able to put him down, and he is constantly so upset. We are just coming out of a leap, so we are hoping to see some sunshine soon ☀️
