Biggest accomplishment today!

I know I've been missing here for a while. My schedule is crazy, moms. I love it! It's a schedule that revolves around the husband and the kids. Every day, there's also work—photo shoot, interview, meeting, writing. I'm a busy working mommy and I love crossing out items on my to-do list. But of all the stuff I accomplished today, this is what I'm most proud of:

I filled up a 5 oz bottle with my breast milk all in one sitting!

    1. I normally express 1-2 oz din! Kaya nga biggest accomplishment ko for the day yang 5 oz na yan! Hindi normal yan! Sobra akong nawindang kaya na-blog ko nang di oras

    1. Please tell your friend that it is completely normal to express just a few ounces! I hardly ever filled a bottle myself when I expressed at the office!

  8. Wow! Congrats Frances. I stopped pumping milk at the office when Emilie turned 1. She still feeds at night when I get home though I think I can no longer satisfy her. So a bottle of Nido is on stand by. Hats off to breastfeeding moms like you. Thank you for all your advice and articles on bf. Really helped me a lot!

    1. Okay lang yan, Liz! I also did that to Vito, at night na lang ako nag-nurse when he was around 10 months old. I'll try to breastfeed Iñigo longer but if hindi kaya, I will feel no guilt about it!

  9. That's really an accomplishment mommy topaz! Bigla ko tuloy namiss magbreasfeed and magpump. I remember when I'm still working, talagang religiously akong nagpupump sa office for my twins kaya I managed to breastfed them exclusively for 10 months. =)I salute you girl! That's the best thing you can give to your baby. Ang daming benefits kapag breastfed sila eh. No unnecessary vaccines and hindi sakitin ang baby. =)

  10. Yey! Happy for you! I felt the same happiness when I am able to pump 5oz for my little girl before. I usually pump 1-2 oz only and whenever I reach the 5 oz mark, I party! There are times I get to produce 10 oz in one seating! But that's only when I get so busy at work that I only get to pump at the end of the day. I know how it feels! And I used Pigeon breast pump too! My partner in all those pumping days. Keep it up Frances :)
