Mom's Little Ones

Yesterday was my first day pumping trial at the office. Pretty excited to bring home fresh stock for little Mika. Everything was ready- the pump- the bottles- the cooler bag - the quiet room all for myself. Then i started my madela pump---errr--- not working?!! Ooh my, i accidently left the pumping vaulve at home- sigh- frustrating. No no no. This is not happening again! I need to pump or i will missed my pumping schedule.

Then i remember the marmet techniques- hand pumping. I said to myself; why not? Just give it a try! So i did. And to my surprise (it still surprises me!) it works like wonders! The outcome is like using electric pump the only drawback is your hand will ach afterwards :) Lenguh la sikit!

The Mom's Little Ones bottles makes me smile- there are little (2oz each) which make it easy to hold and it motivate you to see such progress (because the smaller size). It has coloured cap so i can put aside one colour for next pumping session.
I manage to get 7oz(waa!!) that noon and put those little bottles in the my little cooler bag. Hooray for my first pumping day at the office!!

P/s: If you are new to breastfeeding please don't be discourage. I'm exclusively bf for 2months now- i remember my first 3weeks without milk - its frustrating. Especially when you see the others' babies started to breastfed immediately after birth!

i also luv marmet n learned it by picture from the's so inportant for emergency case..hehe..the production was amazing too..if can, just continue marmet for a few minutes after your pumping session to get more milk..u easily can get another 1-2 oz from both side..
