Breastfeeding Journey - Week 8

I have been getting good progress in my breastfeeding journey!

In my first breastfeeding post, I lamented how difficult it was to sometimes get 1oz. In my second post, I was happy that I was consistently getting 2oz (while nursing). These days, I consistently get 3oz (while nursing). Yay!

And a couple of times, I actually hit 4oz while nursing.........Yippee Yayyy!!!! So happy until must take photo. Ha ha.

I was smiling from ear to ear looking at the 4oz :)

Happy baby after Milkie Milk session


No fat fleshy tights yet (my target!!) but not as skinny as before.


At least I'm now assured that I'm producing enough for baby Erin's daily needs. Next challenge is to build up storage of expressed milk cos I'll be starting work in a month's time.....ok, gotta take things one step at a time!

Haha looking at your photo, I am reminded how very pleased I was to see a decent quantity of milk (wah, real milk! MILK!) after pumping!

Didn't know that breastfeeding pillow could be used for baby to sit, heh.

Way to go, mummy! I know how that feels (to see the supply increasing!) . Wishing you abundance of milk in the days and months to come :)

YAY!! U manage to do it so well in your bf journey. Frequently we mothers are so frustrated when we do not get enough milk esp the first few weeks after giving birth right?

Do share this with everyone new mom you know out there so they do not give up bf their babies, esp in the initial weeks after delivery(where they usually give up breastfeeding)....

Hahaha happy right when u can have so much milk, bravo! Let bb Erin drink more milk n sleep more...slowly u can see her chubby!

Yay!! Actually I think it's the 6 weeks thingy that I forgot to tell u. I read somewhere it says not to pump before baby is 6 weeks old, coz u won't get much either, because milk supply will be properly establish only after 6 weeks, and only then the supply will be consistent n a lot. Either drink plenty of fluid n eat more carbo. It helps.
