It made it easier...

Compared to my 1st breastfeeding journey, my 2nd was easier...but the 1st week always the hardest part same like my 1st...but this time no stress at all...because I now it will come eventually, same method used makan sup papaya muda & "topis" jamu selapan on my nenen...

When Gemma was born, I'm so glad that she can latch easily on me...but the problem is I don't have gatas (susu) yet. So, when she breastfeed...she melekat like 30mins to 1hr pun boleh, then my nipple starts getting blisters, the pain everytime she latches...OMG!! PUNYA SAKIT!!!

When I went to the poliklinik to check up on Gemma's jaundice, one of the nursers saw my blistered nipple when I'm breastfeeding. So she took pity on me and asked me to pump my milk until my nipple heal, "Nanti tu baby hisap pula kau punya darah...bukan tu susu", I know she was right. For 1 week Gemma didn't hisap on me, we bottled feed her using my EBM(expressed breast milk).

This is where my Ameda electric breastpump come in handy, not only it save my time (took only 10mins for pumping session), it increases my milk production, seriously!!! I feel like producing milk for two babies...


Yes, This is my EBM stock, reaching 100packs I think, malas mau kira. My freezer penuh sudah...all the daging-daging/ayam-ayam/icecreams kena pindah to our 2nd fridge.

In case you've been wondering why a SAHM (stay at home mom) want to keep this much EBM?
Well, I wanted to stock it a bit for when emergency (palis-palis) happens, but this is not done intentionally. This is all engorgements, sakit tau nenen bengkak!!!

Now I am super ready to go for my sister's wedding in Ipoh & INDIA!!! (doi punya lama lagi bulan 10) :(

P/S Remember mammas
positive thinking, stress free & happy thoughts is also an important role for producing milk. Happy breastfeeding!!!

Hey!
Os!! hehe, Since everyone calls you Os, I call you Os juga la :)

I want to buy some milk storage bags but some are selling them expensive and some are selling them cheap so... I need your advice bah.

I bingung on this two things:-

1) Ada difference ka what bags or brands of storage bag you use?

2) Kalau mau kasi panas the susu nanti, cannot place the bag in hot water ka? because some say biar defrost, then transfer to bottle and THEN place bottle in hot water. Macam banyak keja ni if like that...

Tolong kasi enlighten me please??
