Other Breastfeeding Mommies


I mentioned here that I’m very fortunate that the organization I work for supports breastfeeding for its female staff and we’re provided with the an expression room where we can pump milk during officer hours. As I’ve said, one of the reasons I’m still breastfeeding now is because we have an expression room here at the office -  a very conducive place to pump breastmilk while I’m away from home. Aside from the room itself, fellow breastfeeding moms I’ve met in the expression room sort of became my support system during this journey of mine.

We’re a loud bunch – hence, the additional memo posted in the room that only 2 staff are allowed to use it at a time heehee. There was a time when there will be 5 moms using the room simultaneously and during these times are our chika moments. We talk about increasing our milk supply, feeding our babies, our babies milestones to our company’s benefits, our company’s local chismis hahaha!

Earlier this month, one of the mommies left the bank for greener pasture (as one mommy put it – bakang baka lang ang peg!). We all met up for lunch as despedida for her. It’s sad that it took one mommy to leave the bank for us to have this kind of get-together.

I'm not sure how long I'll be pumping milk for my baby but I'm enjoying it while I'm doing it. Thanks to these moms who continue to inspire me to give the very best to my baby. Cheers to breastfeeding!

Awww... you're breastfeeding =) Haaay... I so miss those days! Breastfed Adriana for 12 months. Should have extended! Haha! Not many companies give such consideration to breastfeeding moms. You Mamas are lucky! =)

Yes, we're really lucky! :) Hirap to maintain the milk supply if we don't pump milk kasi. Kaya very helpful that we have the room where we can express milk.
