All breastfeeding moms know this: nursing is no walk in the park. It is definitely hard work, and includes plenty of trials and difficulties, especially in the start when you’re still learning the ropes and getting used to constantly feeding. You can count on months of sleepless nights (nope, no rest during the day as well), latching and feeding problems and milk supply issues. There are so many things to learn when you’re a newbie mom, and sometimes it can still be difficult the second or third time around (every baby is different). Honestly, things are only beginning to look up for me after seven months of nursing Tristan, mainly because I have finally gotten used to breastfeeding and I have discovered a few tricks and tips to make my life easier.
I share some of my breastfeeding experiences and advice on this new series called BFF: Breastfeeding Friends with our topic: Good for baby, good for you. I am with my good friend, mom of two boys and breastfeeding advocate Nicole Hernandez-de los Angeles in this mini-show and she helps me tackle all the benefits of breastfeeding in this episode.
This show is produced by Natalac, which is coincidentally my partner in my breastfeeding journey. I’ve been taking the malunggay supplement since I was eight months pregnant (back then I took 3 capsules a day, and now I am down to 2 capsules a day) and it really helped increase my milk supply. It really worked wonders for me, as I never had issues about low milk supply (and Tristan has a huge appetite). I am happy to recommend it to breastfeeding moms and to those who are pregnant and are planning to breastfeed. Natalac really is the best malunggay supplement!
