My experience as a working breatfeeding mother :) :)

Post  SDMummy on Sat Sep 06, 2008 11:58 am

Salaam. I'm a first-time mother to a 9 month old baby. Alhamdullilah, I have managed to breastfeed him since birth although the first few weeks were challenging and I had to succumbed to pressure and gave formula. However, I tried my best to continue to breastfeed and Alhamdullilah, managed to cut out formula completely before he turned 1 month, I think.

At work, I try to express twice a day- once before lunch and once before balik time. I am working with the Government and we do not have a breastfeeding room but I have the pantry all to myself during these times, which I think was easier because I the fridge and sink are easily accessible. My boss and colleagues are also supportive, which helped so much too.

To top it off, since coming back to work, I have to travel from time to time, ranging from just 3/4 days to 9/10 days. Whilst I took my baby with me once (and insya Allah, again tomorrow for a 2 weeks business trip), most of the time he had to stay. Again, Alhamdullilah, I have managed to prepare my EBMs for him to consume whilst I was away. I suppose these are the challenges of a working breastfeeding mother and we always hear that it is always hard for a working mother to maintain exclusive breastfeeding. However, I believe, with strong support from family, friends, colleagues and bosses and of course, correct 'niat' and strong will, insya Allah, we working mothers can breastfeed our babies.

Plus, it gives me comfort that even if I'm thousands of miles away from my baby, my milk is still in Brunei satisfying his hunger Smile Smile That is one thing, I know, no one else can give him besides me Smile Smile

1st time mother, working and also breastfeeding

Post  idola on Sat Sep 06, 2008 12:01 pm

Ive been BF my son for almost 13 months now. I also work with the govt. Honestly speaking i was about to set up a BF support group in Brunei but then i found this website. So i'll just contribute my knowledge and experience about BF here and share with other mommies. My knowledge about BF is not from school.....hehe i gather my info from the internet, books and also from online mommies who BF. Nanti tah suruh durang join the forum. It will be interesting. After the breastfeeding week, i can see that we need more exposure about BF in Brunei. Not enough publicity. People still malu-malu about it. Thats why it is important to form this kind of support group in Brunei. Thanks again for forming it. Ok now lets rock this forum...... Very Happy

Wow!! That's really great SDMummy.. Congratulations to you.. I hope your experience would convince others that you could continue giving breastmilk to your baby even if you are thousand miles away from your baby...

!st time mother, working and also breastfeeding

Post  idola on Sun Sep 07, 2008 6:20 pm

After all the excitement of this forum i forgot to share about my experience on BF and also working. Hehe terlampau labih excited iatah jadinya. Very Happy Anyways, i decided to BF my son when i was about 3 months pregnant. Once, i told a fren of mine that i cant wait to BF my baby! She told me its not going to be easy, mesti kuatkan semangat and banyak sabar. She had successful BF her daughther for almost 3 yrs of age. My mistake was not doing my research about BF during my pregnancy. I want to BF but no research! Haha i bought my breastpump!! but not doing research. Adakah patut!! Oh well, i learn as i go. Alhamdulilah, i still BF my son until now.

I only started to express from work when my son was 7 months old (Not much research, iatah baginya!) I have my own office/room so its easier for me. Ive told my colleagues about my BF journey and they have no problem with it. Even big boss know about it. Hehe sampai ada one time shes the one who approach me to go to the breastfeeding for one minute thingy. Haha normally i'll leave 3-4 bottles of EBM if im at work and come home during lunch for direct feed. If my milk supply is low, i can only manage to leave 1 bottle of EBM so i'll rush home from work to accomadate my lil one. Rasa jua kan full BF ani iatah dikatakan pengorbanan seorang ibu tu namanya. Hehe

I have make the right decision in giving my son my BM because as a working mother, i feel guilty leaving him everytime im going to work. At least with my EBM in the fridge, it will make "the special bond" with him more stronger each day. Yes we do have special bond. If u want to have one, start BF. Hehe I agreed with SDMummy, semangat and niat is really important inorder to become a successful nursing mother for a long time. We can do it, so do u!

During this Ramadhan, i'm thankful that i'm still BF my baby as usual. I also still expressing while at work 2 times and manage to get few ozs from it..Alhamdulillah..

2. Habatu Sauda (Available at Mestari jaya)
3. Buah kurma ( banyak kan makan kurma masa puasa ni, insyaAllah! It will increase ur milk supply)
4. Water chestnut (U can get it from the fruit stall di Athirah, if ke sana baru makan ni....hehe)
5. Dried longan ( u boiled it with rock sugar)
6. Soya bean
7. Oats and horlicks ( recommended to mix it together but sometimes i only drink oats for breakfast)
8. Milo (Dulu yes, but now not anymore coz i have breakouts if i drink too much of milo)
9. Drink plain water ( i Normally drink 2 big bottles of sehat)
10. Pil ASI-air susu ibu (if im desprate banar, i will take this. Untuk melancarkan air susu, u can get it from athirah as well)

Besides, eating well balanced diet, i also eat whenever i feel hungry. Hehe eat in a small amount. Dont ever miss breakfast, lunch and dinner because it really affect ur milk supply. Pump frequently. Be happy, jangan stress-stress. Lastly will be doa, minta dipercukupkan air susu tani sampai 2 tahun. Amin...!!

first time mum & breastfeeding

Post  twoninesix on Tue Sep 09, 2008 7:52 am

Salam mummies! I'm a first time mum to a one week old baby girl, and have just started breastfeeding. I wanted to join this forum because I think it's so difficult to find support and advice about breastfeeding in Brunei!

While I was pregnant, I did lots of research about breastfeeding from the internet and from books, but it was still hard to start breastfeeding right away. Since my daughter was born by c-section, for the first night, I wasn't able to care for her and she was given formula. The second day after she was born, I did my best to breastfeed but had trouble getting my baby to latch on. Luckily some of the nurses at the ward were very very supportive and would sanggup to come into my hospital room balik balik, just to teach me how to get my baby to latch! But of course, we still had problems with latching on, and the nurses again suggested that I supplement with formula. Reluctantly I had to agree because as much as I wanted to breastfeed, I didn't want my baby to go hungry. Alhamdulillah, the next day, my milk started coming in and I was able to begin breastfeeding but we still hadn't really figured out how to latch on properly. I had to suffer from extremely sore, cracked and bleeding nips for a few days - pernah sekali atu, sampai nangis2 while breastfeeding because of the pain!! Eventually, I managed to get my baby to latch on properly BUT she prefers my right breast and still has trouble latching on to my left. So what is happening now is that I'm breastfeeding exclusively from my right, while pumping on my left.

I knew breastfeeding would be challenging, but I didn't think the early days would be this challenging! But it's so worth it though, and Insya Allah, I will breastfeed my baby exclusively for as long as possible. These days, I'm always checking websites such as kellymom.com and the LLLI breastfeeding forums to see if they have the answers to some of the many many many questions I have! I hope I can find help on this forum too! Very Happy

Congratulations twoninesix for breastfeeding your daughter succesfully.. breastfeeding is really challenging but it's worth for your child in the future..especially for the IQ and immuunity of your baby... Don't give up ok... Try to breasfeed from your left breast also ok, your daughter is still learning and will get used to your left breast but it takes time..just be patient and keep trying.. Very Happy Latching on is really hard especially for first time mums, i'll post some pictures and tips on how to latch on for you ok..
