I'm a member of BF Pinays fb group but I unsubscribed to the posts. Why? Because it makes me feel bad and down. I tried to exclusively breastfeed my baby for 3 months. I tried everything para dumami ang supply ng milk ko. Pero no luck. Sobrang sakit sakin painumin ng formula si baby that time dahil sa nababasa ko sa fb group na yun. Na-down din ako kasi feeling ko ang useless ko. Kaya I decided to unsubscribe. After nun, I felt better. I still breastfeed my baby pero mix feeding na.

I breastfed my daughter for 2 years and I'm planning to do the same with my son. Sana same like before na hinde ako nahirapan. Nung nagpa prenatal massage ako, sabe ng therapist andame na daw ng milk and she asked kung may lumalabas na, sabe ko wala pa naman. Nagcclog na sila sa loob ng breast haha.

^Winkar22, FED is still best, don't worry. I'm sure lahat naman ng moms gusto mag breastfeed pero hinde lahat naa achieve yon for different reasons. Doesn't make you less of a mom :)

^ True! And thank you!

They made it like giving formula milk to your baby is a very evil thing. Pero ineencourage ko pa din yung mga friends ko na new moms din to join the group. Madami naman talaga matututunan. I just don't like the way they demoralize those who mix feed.

^sis winkar22, I'm sorry to hear na ganun yung na-feel mo sa group. I admit may mga members dun na medyo walang pakundangan magsalita esp. pag may nagtatanong about mix-feeding or formula feeding.  Kaya ako ang binabasa ko lang, yun mga post mismo ng admins, saka if there is something that I feel na pwede ako makatulong..Strictly no mommy-shaming sana ang group pero may mga nakakalusot...

Wala me fb so di me maka join sa group. Pero paunti unti ko binabasa tong thread and I take notes, madami naman ako natutunan 🤗

Hirap kasi ako mag bf sa 1st ko, naawa naman ako nagugutom so formula sya all throughout.. keber na kung mabash. Healthy naman syang lumalaki at bihirang bihira magkasakit. Pero with my 2nd and current pregnancy, gusto ko naman maexperience mag bf 😃

^sis j.warner, madami talagang hirap magpabreastfeed...hindi naman sa dahil ayaw nila, minsan may mga medical conditions or may mga circumstances kaya di makapagbreastfeed...di naman porke formula eh masama na...basta di nagugutom...

sa case ko lang kasi, madami gatas...even now may gatas ako..kasi my youngest stopped breastfeeding only last May at ilang weeks preggy na ko noon so dere-derecho lang si gatas...sa mga naunang anak ko magmix feed din ako pag di keri magpump ng magpump

it's not even the admins, it is most especially the admins.

marami pang mga fb groups where they can learn breastfeeding.

^^ Haha! True! Sometimes napapaisip na ako kung saan nila nakukuha yung mga iba nilang advices. If I'm not mistaken sila din yung admins sa "Tamang Kain" group. Didn't bother to join na. I joined another fb group na lang about healthy solid foods for babies.

Here are some of my experiences about breastfeeding:

1. HINDI SIYA MADALI. Akala ko nung preggy ako chill lang kapag nagbreastfeed. But NOOOO. I was super mistaken. Mahirap sya. Super sakit sa una. May point na natatakot ako tuwing magigising si baby to feed kasi masasaktan nanaman ako.

2. Baby needs to latch properly para maka-suck ng maayos and mabawasan ang sakit. Akala ko basta salpak mo lang sa boobs mo si baby okay na. Lol. Challenging yung first week. And yes, dumugo ang nipples ko dahil hindi okay ang latch ni baby.

3. Nakaka-drain sya ng energy. That's why you need to eat often. And sleep whenever possible.

4. Wala kang magagawang iba kasi most of the time you are nursing the baby. Afterwards, you feel tired so you eat or rest. Then after a few hours gising nanaman si baby. Repeat cycle.

5. There was some point that you wish may boobs din yung husband mo. Especially during nighttime when you see your husband snoring while you nurse your baby.

I hope I still remember everything, it's been so many years :D Every kid is different and every experience varies too. All I know is that as moms, we try our best. It's just so annoying that there are some moms who feel superior than others. Eh hinde lang naman sa pagpapakain natatapos ang pagiging magulang.

^sis, sad truth madaming ganun, yung porke nakakapagpa breastfeed sila for several years eh feeling superior...ako kasi goal ko kahit exclusive during naka-maternity leave ako then mixed feed pag pumapasok na ko wala problema sa kin...

saka yung tamang kain, feeling ko kasi alam na ng bata yun kung kelan nya gusto kumain...at kung ano available sa bahay yun ang binibigay ko...basta durog maigi keri na yun...para di magselan...

^Onga sis eh. Ang importante naman mapakain mo ng maayos and tama, the best way that you can. Nakakairita ibang moms na pag nalaman mixed or formula feeding ka, as if harina yung pinapakain mo sa bata. Oh well, I guess culture na din ditto talaga yan. Same way na sa US, frowned upon yung breastfeeding in public and it offends other people.

^sis minsan dito din pag nagpa breastfeed ka in public, pagtitinginan ka na parang binabastos mo sila...saka may kaisipan dito sa tin na pag nagpapabreastfeed ka ay mahirap ka at can't afford bumili ng formula milk...

^sis sa panganay ko, madalas ako masabihan nyan dati...may neighbor kasi kami na di naman sa pag-aano ay hikahos sila sa buhay, nakasali sa 4Ps un dalawang anak, then bunso nila pinapadede nila ng Nan HW kasi daw para daw matalino paglaki, although di ko alam saan nila nakuha yun kaisipang ganun...Nun nagpunta sa bahay namin para isanla yun  4Ps na Landbank atm niya, nakita nya ako nagpapabreastfeed sa anak ko, sabi nya "ano ka ba naturingang may trabaho bakit ka nagpapasuso, walang sustansya makukuha anak mo dyan, kaya nga ako tiniyaga ko na mag Nan ang anak ko eh kahit wala ako pambili, dapat mas may pambili ka"...ganun ang sabi nya...

tapos may isang officemate din akong nagsabi na sobrang kuripot ko daw sa anak ko kasi nagpapabreastfeed ako instead na bumili ng gatas..

^nakakalungkot Naman na mindset yan. Sana maeducate silang mabuti... Walang masamang mag formula but to say na walang sustansya ang breastmilk? Hmmm. Tsaka kung alam lang nila kung gaano kamahal bumili ng breastmilk ano. Ahaha. Tsaka anong masama kung nakakatipid ka dahil nagpapasuso ka? It's just one of the perks of breastfeeding.

I exclusively breastfed my daughter for 19 months. Ang hirap nya iwean kasi hindi sya marunong uminom sa bottle and can't sleep without nursing. Pero happy ako sa naging journey namin. We switched to formula nung nagwean sya but now at 3 yrs and 5 months, hindi na sya nagmimilk at all. She's fine both with my breastmilk and formula.
...all adventurous women do.

^sis simang, ako talaga ang goal ko mapa exclusive ko lang ang mga anak ko ng 6months sobrang saya ko na, pero iba-iba mga bata...Like sa panganay ko, EBF kami nun naka Mat leave ako, then mixed feed na nung pagbalik ko office kasi ayaw nya inumin yung expressed milk na inuuwi ko...sa 2nd ko naman, ebf until 6months pero nagmix feed kami nun ika-6th dahil kumonti breastmilk ko, na bumalik din naman after a month sa tamang dami ng supply.. sa 3rd ko ganun din. Napabreastfeed ko din sila kahit mixed with formula for mga 2 taon sila.  Masaya na ko dun, basta di sila gutom at di sila nagkakasakit.

^ True, true! Well said mga mommies! Mahirap din sa panahon ngayon, medyo madami tayong nababasa sa social media na malakas maka-impluwensya.

Umpisa pa lang ng breastfeeding journey ko napansin ko na hindi ganon kalakas supply ko. Sabi ko sana masustain ko lang kahit 6months super saya ko na. Kaso nung bumalik na ako sa work, ang konti talaga ng napupump ko. So no choice na, mix feed na. Until now, going 8mos si baby may milk pa din ako kahit papano (pero tingin ko malapit na magstop). Naiisip ko pa lang parang mamimiss ko patulugin si baby sa boobs ko  ;D
