Alhamdulillah, until to date, Widad still consume my breast milk. Determination and support from Mr Hubby, I had well prepared before her arrival. I went to breastfeeding preparation class, bought breastpump and accessories, I had started pump the breast milk from 1st week of confinement to make my breastfeeding dream come true. Another one month to go, then Widad officially exclusively drink Mummy’s breast milk.
I’d also thankful to Allah for giving me the milk supply more than Widad’s consume and need to dispose it. According to Kelly.com, frozen breast milk best kept for 3months in self-contained freezer unit of refrigerator. For Widad’s EBM, I had dispose almost 235.5 oz of EBM. 43.5 oz from plastic liner, 84.5 oz from bottles and 107.5 oz from plastic container. According to Breastfeeding-mom.com, breast milk change according to baby’s age. Depend to the article and Jabbar’s advise, I had re-organized and re-arrange my breast milk and dispose all the breast milk expressed on Jun, July and few bottles from August.
Looking at those EBM, I felt proud and no even a slight guilty because I managed to expressed that quite large amount and Alhamdulillah Widad growth well and healthy. Although, some said Widad had not enough nutrition, not fully satisfied her hunger as she always cried. But, I don’t care what people said, what does matter me, Widad development is good, has good bowel movement, and the best part is the boding between me and Widad. I love when she drink and I can cuddle her in my arm, wrap her with my warmth and love.
