The things that makes me feel like i accomplish something is when i can feed my baby and then she sleeps for hours. Feels like i fulfilled my responsibility as a mom. :)
But the first few days upon her arrival is real torture. At that time susu tak ada, only colustrom je.. And Mya was demanding to be fed every 2 hours. Kesian tgk dia cam tak puas everytime i feed her. Time tu bergegar satu rumah dia menangis..Tp i had to constantly let her suck so she can get all the nutritions even tersengguk2 mengantuk masa bf.
The first time i breastfed her was surreal..x sangka i can nurse my own baby, i mean i saw everyone else doing it and now its my turn. I can feel the connection and the love, looking at her angelic face.. I just want to protect her from the rest of the world..
About cracked nipples masa baru2 bf, Ouh, sakitnya menyucuk2..everytime she suckles it's torture to me. The trick is to put a few drops of your milk around the nipple area. That would cure the pain. Atau pun pakai nipple cream pun boleh.
In my case day 5 only, my boobs start to produce milk. I felt my boobies so engorged, sakit.. I had to pump it all out. Every 3 hours if Mya is sleeping i had to pump, bagusla bak kata org, the more you pump or bf your baby the more milk is produced. So dont give up if the first few days nothing comes out, who says bf is easy..?
I tried as much as i can to fully bf Mya, but in a day maybe sebotol dua pakai formula milk since tok mama kdg2 nak tidur dgn cucu nya.
But now Mya prefer to sleep with Mommy at night, nak bau ketiak i kot baru leh tido.. Kalau tak terkebil2 je dia. Hehe
So what's your experience in nursing your baby? Share with me!
