We ever heard the funny statement? Fresh milk comes from cows and chocolate milk comes from chocolate cows. Huhu. What happens to strawberry milk? Hehe
Many mommies including myself had question buzzing around breastfeeding? Such as my baby is always hungry. Am I producing enough milk? Am pumping like mad everyday but still do not acheive my target of filling the second layer of the freezer. How do I know if my baby is getting enough milk? I had a c-sec can I produce enough milk? Should I replace breastfeeding with cow’s milk coz of my low milk supply? Fresh milk or formula milk? Is there a chance to increase my milk supply?
Be it breastfeeding for the first or second time. There are times when we may have sightest doubt in ourselves. That tiny little voice at the back of our head. Here are some tips.
The mind is a powerful tool that Allah has granted us. The mind powers and instruct the body to behavior or act in a certain manner. Like there is a saying. There is no mind over matter. If you don’t mind it don’t matter. Drown-out that voice of doubts and replacing them with singing birds of joy singing:
“You can do it,
Take a step each day,
step by step,
Its part of nature,
And a part of me,
A part of who I am,
To naturally breastFed”
Your actions are reflected though your mind. Shift your mind 360 degrees to a more I-can-do attitude. Rest assure, thoughts are like prayers. Set your mind to always ask from Allah for the very best for you and your baby.
As mentioned in my previous posts. Doas are the direct communication to Allah. Ask only from Allah with patience, gentle and kindness. Doa yang tiada putus-putus. Yakin lah rezeki datangnya dari Allah.
*** Pumping your new breast friend
The newborn babies are sleepyheads in the first few months. Pumping in between of direct feeding can help to change your breastmilk into the next gear from colostrom to breastmilk. And to increase milk supply by pumping every 2 hours. Once when you get back to work or University and where time is conjested with endless meetings and assignments. (We provide one to one guidance, do WhatsApp us for more information) secure a 15-min pumping schedule atleast once every 2 hours.
Many may have asked. I have consume Shaklee as guided. But my friend as the result very quickly then I. Why is that?
The best consultation for this is to share your concerns to your re-seller. Since your re-seller knows your history before (consultation and assesement was made before you purchase Shaklee) Follow-ups made can helped with the daily routines and a new assesement needed to be analysed and a new follow-up to be made.
Understanding that each individual is unique to the responses of Shaklee. The body needs atleast 90 days for the restoring, rebuild and repair the damaged cells and tissues in the body. Patience is the key.
****Keep in touch with you re-seller
The first line of consultation is your re-seller. Having a good open communication with your re-seller to help maintain customer-reseller relationship. You need mutual support for Shaklee. Your re-seller is the key. And also a good group of mommies circle helps to keep the breastfeeding spirit alive
The key is plenty and plenty of doas, mind set, power-pumping, shaklee guidance and consultation from reseller and mutual support.
I end here with a favourite quote I heard before “A breastfed baby will InsyAllah breastfed in the future”
As cows naturally produce milk too. Give your very best for your baby. The cow’s milk should be last priority.
