My breastfeeding journey - Part 4

After 4 months breastfeeding Kaith exclusively, she is now taking formula milk occasionally as my milk supply is lesser, and also she has increased her milk intake to 5.5oz already (she weighs a healthy 6.8kg now)

It's my bad that I didn't pump as frequent lately, sometimes due to work time constraints; and sometimes due to my weekend activities where I'm always on the go, I just couldn't keep up to my feeding and pumping schedule.

Nowadays she is taking formula once every 2 days, the rest of the time are still on breast milk. Same as Dillon, I don't plan to start Kaith on solid until she is 6-7 months old.


Look how much she enjoys sucking on her fingers...hmmm.... yummy.... :)

Another 3 months to go for your target. Well you still can pump at shopping complex's nusing room. Just keep the bm in another bottle and feed Kaith when she is hungry.

Just do whatever you can. It is not easy to maintain the milk supply if you are working.
