I decided to breastfeed my second-born after having difficulty with milk allergies with my firstborn.
On the first night that Eli was home from the hospital, I noticed that he had fever.
The pediatrician said, maybe he was dehydrated since he doesn’t drink milk a lot, because he immediately sleeps after just a few sucks.
He was a lazy sucker.
So instead of following what was taught, of waiting for a few months until I can pump, I immediately started pumping.
While trying to build my supply, my friend from Manila sent me her extra stash via plane for me to use for the time being.
Since I wanted to breastfeed him and not just give him a bottle of my milk, I made sure that when I arrived from work I would purely breastfeed him while the milk that I had pumped from work would be used for his stash in the next few days.
