Hello....breastfeeding is really something that makes your attachment stronger with your child but if supply fluctuates then can cause sadness coZ of baby dependence for food....
Otherwise its a beautiful experience....

Breast feeding is like a boon to every mother to get a great bonding with her child. It's really a wonderful task given by a god to a every mother towards her Child which cannot be performed by anyone else. My daughter is going to turn 2 by this September and I'm still feeding her. I'm just enjoying it a lot. Bcoz I would not get this moment back. All the mothers have to be grateful to god to give such an opportunity .Ofcourse we ll face some issues so time but we should not bother about it. I say I really enjoyed my feeding task. Lastly I would like having a child is one boon means getting an opportunity to feed that child is an another boon given by god. I would request all mothers plz don't miss this opportunity. Feed ur child as long as u can. Thank you

Finally!!! I got an opportunity to pen down the most hard yet beautiful journey of breastfeeding. It was 4th June'18 , at 11:20 a.m I heard my daughter's voice for the first time. She was crying and I was smiling. What a memorable moments it was... I went for C-section because Myra was in breech position. First day I was not in a position to to breastfeed her but the very next day we started trying to breastfeed her. I was not able to feed her because there was latching issue with Kiddo (Myra) I I tried and tried hard but couldn't make her latch. Now the only option for me was to express the milk n feed her. My God it was a difficult task for me. Nurse asked us to bring syringe to express milk, and guess what ? We got one to do the same. My husband helped me to express milk. He was literally doing it. He was expressing my milk. We started storing the milk because we have to be ready to feed kiddo. It was so painful, not only for me but for my husband too. My husband got 10 days of paternity leave. So, this expression of milk continued for 10 days. Now his leave was over, he has to go to the office next day. I was devastated because no body was there to help me out. My mom couldn't come because of health issues. We went to the other hospital for kiddo's regular check-up (jaundice and weight check). There we met a lactation. She checked my breast and said "Saumya everything is ok". She held my nipples and gave it my kiddo mouth and guess what??? Kiddo started sucking it. The happiest day of my life it was. I was able to feed my child from my breast not from spoon. I was so so so happy. Basically the problem was in my way of feeding her. There was no latching problem or problem with my breast. Six months of EXCLUSIVE BREASTFEEDING. Till one year I have not given her top milk. Guys it was not easy to give her exclusive breastmilk but I was so motivated by my Doctor's words "Saumya you can't even imagine what you are doing for your child, you are protecting her from life threatening diseases like diabetes and cancer". This was it. This is the best gift I have given to my child. And this was possible only because of my husband who use to motivate me, give me back massage and use to wake up entire night with me to help me feed Kiddo. Myra is a healthy baby and she isn't even affected by the change of season. No cough, no cold and no diarrhoea.
I am so glad that I got an opportunity to tell everyone about #mybreastfeedingstory .

I have lese amount milk to my baby feeding wat should be do for this problem

hello.. happy breastfeeding week fir all the beautiful lucky mother's..
Breastfeeding has became legal and good thing, even then many mom's shame to feed in public, the bound between baby and mother makes it so adroble,,, such a great blessing..once i faced breast feeding in public as my baby was too small and was went for mall, its good that now a days we can see nursing rooms wherever we go in India 😊 Breast milk is very important for babies, first food for them😊

Breastfeeding is one of the most beautiful experiences. My baby was born with a low birth weight and was hence admitted to the NICU. Since mine was a normal delivery I remember walking to the NICU every 2 hours through the night until the next afternoon just to see my lil one and feed him . He was so tiny and still when he latched on the feeling is unexplainable. The beauty is I've solely breastfed and my little koala bear is perfectly hail healthy and hearty. I'm blessed beyond words and thank God every single day that I'm blessed enough to be able to Breastfeed my baby

Hello everyone. Iam a first time mom.
My son is one month old..i had a c-sec n he was in nicu just after the birth.i had no breast milk supply till first three days atleast and he was on top feed and on other hand i was going through post delivery depression because of n number of reasons like i have not seen my baby till 2 to 3 days as we both were in different hospitals secondly i had no milk leaking there.. (had no knowledge about breast feefing)
I just use to sit and cry.. these all things were going and going on and i thought i would never be able to feed my milk to my baby.
But then my sister she supported me a lot.. and still she is supporting me.. she told me to have patience and keep on feeding and get proper latching tricks.. and she told me about diet and some ayurvedic medicines.. she did everything she could do to make me calm.. and slowly i stopped giving bottle feed to my baby and now iam in exclusive breast feeding..
Also my husband supported me a lot and still he is supporting me doing everything that could make me calm and happy..
Thanks to them!☺
