I managed to breastfeed Jayden for 6months before I weaned off. The initial stage was depressing as I do not have any breastfeeding support from anyone. My MIL(Mother-In-Law) felt that the bm(breastmilk) is too diluted and I was cause Jayden to go hungry and my mom felt that I needed more rest. Plus the fact that Jayden TGA condition also add a challenge for me to combat breastfeeding as a first time mummy. I always feel breastfeeding is a gift from God that we give to our babies. Its the best and only we as mummy can do it thus I am set to breastfeed no matter who stood in my way.
Here’s a video how he stole my heart away during his 1st month.
Jayden is a good natured and beautiful baby. He gave me the countless moments of joy of being a mummy despite the sleepless nights, carrying demands, looping baby lullabies. I managed well without any confinement lady and am appreciative to spend many personal moments with him.
I am sharing some snapshots of his growth below till one year.
