This was the very first time I fed my lil Azumi, it was exactly an hour after I gave birth thru normal delivery. That was the strangest yet the sweetest....---oh well actually there are no words to explaine how I felt during that time. The feeling was automatic, maybe I could describe it as "extreme overjoyed".




When I was still pregnant, I was already determined to to breastfeed my baby even though I didn't have the idea of how would I do it. I heard alot of situations that there are many moms who couldn't breastfeed their babies because they just can't... Thank God, my hospital provides breast massage and seminars about the basic care for the newborns. I learned that breastmilk is like the law of supply & demand lol. Normally, it takes 3 to 7 days (or even 2 weeks ) to have a normal production of breastmilk. Some women are just lucky to begin producing milk during pregnancy.. In my case, it took me 7 days to have that leaking milk like a cow. The breast massage was uber painful especially the first 3 days of 30 min massage every morning during my stay in the hospital... oh well

Until now, I alternately feed my baby with breastmilk and formula milk.

I'm one of those mom's who's not as lucky with breastfeeding. Just can't produce enough milk for both my baby. I only manage to breastfed them till their 2 months.

Hi thanks for visiting sweetytots-booksale

We do have cd's for babies but its mostly nursery rhymes, i find it really nice for babies the same age as yours. Its a VCD so your baby can watch it, my daughter started her "singing career" with this too. You'll be surprised on how much they can learn from this. My daughter was about 8 or 9 nine months when she started reading, because of this VCD, she actually read e,i,e,i,o from old McDonald had a farm. She saw it in a coloring book and read e,i,e,i,o you can just imagine how surprised I am to see her read at 9 months.

I also have brainy baby board books other early learning board books that is best for you baby's age. All at very affordable price of Php 287. The nursery rhymes vcd sells for Php 170 only.

oh, so lovely! yeah, sakin 3 days lang napuno milk ang breasts ko ke bigat grabeh. masakit na masarap mag padede, pero promise ko sa sarili ko sa next baby ko 100% breastfeeding talaga. si nathan mga 2 and a half months lang tumigil, nawalan ako ng gatas pano kasi i stopped eating rice at saka nipple ko ngiging flat sya, sayang nga eh. kaya keep on breastfeeding nakakalose rin ng weight yun, although I don't think you have weight issues pero it's best for the baby :).
