As per part 1 entry, besides getting info from net, I also engaged with one of LC – FOC.
She is also never seen fren but get to know thru m.com. A very helpful , knowledgeable friend , answering every single question posted by me patiently.
Here I would like to dedicate my highest appreciation to Ila a.k.a Mummy Izz for lending her hands guiding/ introducing me to BF world. May Allah bless and pay for all her kindness to me.
Once pumping session per day is like a burden for me. In-house clinic is quite far distance from my place. And not that comfortable at first. Continual reading SI, seek for more motivation and help from my LC, I upgraded pumping session from 1 -3 time per day. Writing such long email to my superior ( new boss that time-am afraid that he couldn’t understand-moreover he got no child yet . **sorry boss**).
But Alhamdulillah, he understood and don’t question much when I was ‘away’ from my place.
I enjoyed the precious moment away from work ( 15min x 3 /day), sitting on the bed, relax and started “ummi at work” activity. Not to forget few pumpingmates sharing same bed and chit chating about children , BF and etc. **Thanks ladies for great moment**
While I’m trying hard on hand express ( 5-6oz per session, not bad la my skill ), my LC introduced me one of BF gadget, Spectra 3.
Recommended by other mommies in SI too. So, why not give a try. Purchase it from here during sale. This the only pump that I have . electric + double pumping gear . after falling in love doing double pumping, my Spectra 3 started to misbehave . ( or I’m the one who handle it roughly )… I troubleshoot myself, get new spring, press bit here and there.. functioning back .
Sometime pumping drive me crazy. From Spectra double pumping, I down grade it to double pumping collaboration between gear and nature gift. One using spectra and the other side hand express…it works..the collection is the same. * Alhamdulillah, praise to Allah *
But people might wondering , why trouble urself while u can rely on spectra 3 doing the work and u can just relax. The reason is I started with hand express and it was meaningful and satisfying . I don’t want to loose the skill, so I should think of to continue and improve the skill. Searching back pamphlet given by hospital when I delivered Shukrina as guidance and learn from here , helped me to maintain the skill.
I wish I could stop but still have lots of memory to share here about my BF journey. Will continue bout my in-house nursing room, BF circle of concerns or circle of infulence, my company's support towards BF. Perharps can have some photo to view later.
