If there is one thing motherhood did to me, it’s realizing the impact of breastfeeding.
More than anything, I was more concerned on what to feed the newborn. I actually prepared for formula feeding, and planned on what the doctor would recommend. But luckily, my OB-GYN was strongly urging me to TRY breastfeeding.
So we did. And we fell in love with it that my husband and I made it our advocacy. We both realize the many wonderful things breastfeeding did for our family. You can read a compilation of my own stories here. We still breastfeed our almost three and a half year old little girl when she wants. Upon waking up, before sleeping, and just whenever she’d feel like it. It was really a journey worth taking.
I am just so happy to find out that a new book all about breastfeeding is coming out. And it’s authored by a Filipino mom and published locally!
The book, “Breastfeeding: A Journey Worth Taking” will be launched next Saturday, January 25, 3:00 PM-5:00 PM at Mothercare, Active Fun Building, 9th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City. The book launch will also feature talks that will surely inform and inspire moms about breastfeeding.
It is free, but you need to give a heads up if you’re attending. You may do so here.
Congratulations to Teresa Gumap-as Dumadag, a work-at-home/homeschooling mom, for this book! May this book be an instrument to reach out to more families the many wonderful benefits of breastfeeding.
