Breastfeed Journey - AMAZING

Darwisy,Me,Alin with her baby, Ku, and aira (Lunch Hour during BF time) The group BF that i called them 'BREASTFEEDING SUPPORT GROUP' I decided to BREASTFEED for many reasons, but the two biggest reasons were the health of my child and the money I would save doing it. And my husband was very supportive, as well. In preparation for my new role as a breastfeeding mother, I did a lot of research on the internet, bought numerous BOOK on the subject, and read as many message boards as I could get my eyes on! Still, I was not as PREPARED as I would have liked to be - reading about breastfeeding is quite different from doing it! I Returned to work when my baby was 2 MONTH old. By this time, we had turned a corner and breastfeeding was going much more smoothly. At work I pumped three times per day. My abundant milk supply has made PUMPING easy but because the BREASTPUMP is not as efficient as a nursing baby. One day I have to put Darwisy ad-hoc at NURSERY because of certain reason at that time and from there we meet a friends who has done BF. So I called them BREASTFEEDING SUPPORT GROUP. They are a few friends that I meet Azlyn, Lina, kuHaslinda, Sue and more instead I can’t remember their name. It changed my life. I know that sounds dramatic, but hearing the STORIES from other mothers, especially those women who were going through the same things or even experiencing much worse problems, changed my perspective completely. I felt proud that even though we were experiencing trouble, my baby was thriving on my milk. We weighed my BABY and I learned that he had gained .It gave me the motivation to keep going. By the time Darwisy was 6 months old, I had stored 50 bottle = 6ounces each of milk stashed in my freezer. Darwisy is turning one year old in a 2 month, and he weighs 9.5 Kg, which means he wears 24m clothing! He has taken slowly to SOLIDS, and milk is still the primary source of his nutrition. He is wonderfully healthy, and the happiest baby I've ever met. He now wiggles and pinches and stands while nursing. It is one more challenge to overcome in our nursing relationship - a relationship that I expect will continue until Darwisy decides he is ready to cut the ties to his babyhood. When he does STOP NURSING, I can honestly say I will MISS it!

salam..bolehkah saya ber'bm'? terima kasih.

agak kabur tentang perincian. maksudnya akak pump banyak2, mungkin pada malam hari, pastu store dalam freeze. then bila nak pergi kerja + hanta baby p nursery, akak bawak kuar (letak dalam apa ye?) then sampai kat nursery, masuk dalam peti ais dia? nursery tu panaskan milk dengan microwave? air panas?

satu lagi, bila pump kat tempat kerja, store dalam freeze opis? then bawak balik umah? pakai apa ye? (yang saya tahu sikit2 milk kan delicate,prone to infection)

untung ada support group.tempat kerja saya sikit orang, dan perempuan cuma ada 2. bujang dan tak BF.

harap dapat detail pengalaman akak..macam akak kata, buku takkan sama dengan praktikal.


terima kasih.

Aza - w'salam lina
1)lina letak susu utk pergi taska dlm cooler bag. (Ni ada di jual di kedai menjual alat pump susu)lepas tu akak akan ambil 2 susu baru dan satu susu lama dlm peti ais bagi pd taska.

2)bila lina start bekerja -routine lina pump susu pukul b4 pergi kerja dlm pukul 6.00am, pukul 10.00am dan 3.00pm. Masa utk pump tak boleh skip sbb kalau kita skip pengluarsan susu akan bekurangan sbb tiada pemintaan. Jadi tak boleh ponteng pump susu.
3)Susu yg sudah dipump boleh simpan di peti ais office ataupun susu boleh bertahan 8 jam dlm room temperature, sebaik nyer beli cooler bag, jd kita boleh simpan susu dlm bag itu.
4) tempat kerja lina dekat dengan taska bila lunch hour lina pergi ke taska dan susu kan baby dan juga lina simpan susu di peti ais taska. (Lina bawa guna cooler bag)

5)Di taska mereka mmg ada alat pemanas susu, tp boleh guna air panas utk memanas kan susu tersebut. Sebelum di panaskan susu mesti di biar kan terlebih dahulu supaya zat dlm susu tidak hilang.

Harap penerangan ini jelas dan dpt membantu aza..Good luck ya.
