    Breastfeeding my 3 years old daughter

    Yes, Zoe is 3.7 years old and still exclusively breastfed. I know, breastfeeding this long might not for everyone. I totally get that. And I am not forcing anyone who wasn’t comfortable to do extended breastfeeding. So I hope the same goes to all the people who shames me for choosing to breastfeed Zoe until she self wean. We are breastfeeding anytime and anywhere since birth til now. Because for me, it is natural, it is love and it’s our bonding. Everytime she sees me sitting, it’s always an opportunity to latch. Sometimes for only 30 seconds, sometimes til she fell asleep. She’s still unli latch at night and that’s…

    5 Factors To Consider When Buying Nursing Bra.

    Iโ€™ve been breastfeeding Zoe for almost 3.3 years now and weโ€™re still going strong with no signs of weaning yet. As a first time mom who plans to breastfeed til Zoe self wean I really bought a lot of nursing bras. But sadly stopped wearing them when Zoe turned 1 year old because itโ€™s not comfortable anymore. So I told myself next time Iโ€™ll invest and pick nursing bra wisely. Luckily, I found Coobie Bras. They have all types of bra not just nursing bra. They sent me two kinds of bra, nursing bra and scoop neck which are the bestsellers for me to try. 5 factors I consider when…

  • Breastfeeding In Style with Little Roo

    Last time, I post about my views regarding breastfeeding in public here. But some moms don’t have that confidence yet to breastfeed in public. And yes, I hear you mommas! Luckily, I found this local brand that sells a breastfeeding cover. Little Roo The name is too cute and catchy. Isn’t it? It is owned by Mommy Alex, a breastfeeding mom of twins. All the infinity nursing scarves are made with love as she’s the only one sewing at night. Salute to all mompreneurs like her! So let’s support locals! While feeding Zoe suddenly sneak out of the cover and told me “Mom, look Im inside you just like kangaroos!”.…

  • Breastfeeding in Public

    I always wonder why do people remain so incredibly uncomfortable with breastfeeding in public? Why does society still seem so put off by a woman using her breasts for what they were really made for? I’ve been breastfeeding for 3 years and 2 months now. We strike anywhere and anytime when Zoe is hungry. I usually don’t have a cover since Zoe hates being covered. She keeps on lifting the cover on and off and it’s really inconvenient for me. And besides I don’t really see anything wrong from feeding my daughter especially in public so I don’t get it when people awkwardly stare at me when I feed Zoe.…

    Breastfeeding a Toddler

    I knew very early in my pregnancy that I wanted to breastfeed my daughter, Zoe. So from unang yakap to the very first latch til now that sheโ€™s almost three weโ€™re still exclusively breastfeeding. Yes, breastfeeding is a choice. But i hope pregnant mommas will choose to breastfeed their little ones for the first 6 months. I planned to stop around the two year mark. But as that milestone rolled around, I thought to myself, What am I going to do if we stop nursing? It makes things so much easier. She falls asleep faster, I donโ€™t have bottles to deal with, and flu season is starting so Iโ€™ll just…
