"I breastfed from a bottle"
Faith Lim shares her motherhood journey on how she breastfed from a bottle.
Majority of mothers are fully aware that breastmilk is the best for babies. Some of us name it as "liquid gold" (You don't just get it whenever you want it. So precious!) Here is Mother who does breastfeeding from a bottle.
Although there have been an increase in the numbers of mothers breastfeeding their newborns for weeks after birth, many of them stop breastfeeding exclusively or stop breastfeeding altogether due to various reasons.
- Returning to work (especially in Singapore because most of the mothers need/prefer to return to the workforce after their maternity leave has ended.)
- Not able to supply enough breastmilk
- Baby was not able to suckle well/properly

I wish to share my experience here. I had introduced myself as a Stay At Home Mom in my very first post (in case some of you missed that entry). I have every reason to direct latch Baby Liv and breastfeed exclusively. My breastfeeding journey has not been easy.
|Although I can never direct-latch Liv again, I'm thankful for the increasing support from my loved ones to continue pumping. S keeps me company whenever he can while I pump. He has been staying up at night to wait for me before we hit the sack at the same time.|
|Most importantly, Liv keeps me motivated to continue pumping . I've learnt that direct latch is not the only way to bond with my baby.|
|10 months of breastfeeding, and counting. Liv is growing taller and stronger by the day!|
