So here’s my breastmilk stash for my Baby Samuel. Before I gave birth, I have decided to 100% breastfeed him but he had a difficulty latching as I have inverted nipples and so we resorted to feed him formula milk.
Since we have a breast pump, I just expressed breastmilk and stored them in breastmilk bags then freeze them for long term storage.
A couple of days passed postpartum, we took Sam to his pedia for his follow up checkup and unfortunately, we found out that he has jaundice (a yellow discoloration of the skin, mucous membranes, and the whites of the eyes caused by increased amounts of bilirubin in the blood) and is not recommended to be fed with breastmilk. This got me even more frustrated because I strongly believe in the wonders of breastmilk especially the colostrum which is available only after giving birth. Despite all these, I was never disheartened to give my son what he deserves and so I still continue to express breastmilk even if I feel some discomfort at times. I’m even recovering from mastitis up to this moment which I got because my Samuel is not feeding on me and my pumping schedule is not constant so there were clogged milk ducts which had some infections.
Last Friday, we went back to Sam’s pedia and thank God for a wonderful news! My baby can now enjoy mommy’s booby milk! 😂😁🍼 Not only we can save money from constantly buying formula milk but also, my son will be a very healthy baby and I’m planning to continue feeding / expressing milk for as long as he wants and as long as supplies lasts! 😂😆 P.S. I’d like to thank Pampanga’s Best for the deep freezer 😅😉✌🏼 haha! We just borrowed it from my in-laws so that the milks will have their own freezer away from our dogs’ chicken supply and our household’s fresh meats 🐷🍗🐟 @vpharmaph @megamalunggay
