Today marks Amsyar's 18months birthday. Which also marks my 18th mths
breastfeeding journey.I am more that gratitude could eventually mean to Allah
for this opportunity and blessings. To be able to cope with all the ups and
The most feared month of the year was ramadhan.this time I had to go through
twice during this journey.but Allah knows best and provide sustainance to us in
all ways. Alhmdulillah I never missed sahur for all my bf days and 25oz per day
was nvr less by an ounce those days.alhmdulillah.berkat ramadhan.
From all those glorious days of reaping 25-30oz per day, the journey was nvr
smooth. Challenges were always there. Work load and stress may b the main
culprit as for me from three times per day of pumping at work, barely to get
one session was already a struggle. Ending with only 3oz per day, I was really
grateful with the rezeki for my little one, amsyar.
Amsyar had gotten the opportunity to be exclusively fully one whole year on
breastmilk. And that was more than a wonderful achievement for mommy! For
3months he was on formula once a day, and then started to have only one bottle
of mommy's milk for the next 3mths. So sad but yet its the truth.
Thank you Allah for all the gold fluid for my baby boy. For now I have
decided to end the pumping journey, and continue only direct feed at night and
weekends until whenever the milk is still there.
So now, officially declared, I have stopped pumping milk.
What a beautiful journey.
Now continued.Until there is no more :)
