Having known about the benefits of breastfeeding, I have really made it a goal to purely breastfeed until Gia weans.
But breastfeeding, as they say, is not always easy. I started with cracked, bleeding nipples because of poor latch. I was also not sure whether I was producing enough milk to meet my baby's needs.
Further, my baby has developed jaundice, adding up to the frustrations I have already been experiencing.
I was about to give up until a good friend introduced me to a Lactation Group in Baguio. I had lactation counselling and massage. Imagine the joy I had when I saw my milk dripping from my breast. I thought I didn't have enough. Now, Gia and I are on our 26th month of pure breastfeeding journey.
Having a support group is really important to achieve successful breastfeeding. Mommies should always remember the benefits of breastfeeding and ask for help when needed.
