Cikebum’s 22 months now. That means I have been expressing liters of the love feeding from my body since the day he came out of my womb.
For those few months too, I have been keeping worries of What Ifs.
What if my BM is lack of nutrient?
What if the supply is not enough?
And my main concern is to enhance the breast milk production.
Since then, I took all measures I could to make sure the stock is enough.
(Read: stock that is ‘fresh from farm’ bcoz I no longer have it expressed since the past 7 months. Haha)
When people say spinach could help, I consume spinach.
When I read that radish is good, I made my tastebud forget how bitter it is, just to ensure that my baby got the best.
When I was told that jantung pisang is effective, without fail I would put it in my lunch plate whenever I see it, putting aside the side effects like angin dalam badan.
Anything, dear… Anything.
There’s only one thing I am a bit reluctant to do. Drinking powdered milk.
I could still tolerate unflavoured fresh milk, but please don’t make me throw up what I have eaten. To date, I have only drunk that milk several times, and that was bcoz we did not have
As an alternative, I put dollops of ice-cream and blend the milk with ice cubes.Result? Yummy milkshake!!! Hehehe.
