Sleep according to Kheira

kiksleep

I love how my baby sleeps. Ever since she was born, I believe that she would show us her personality as early as day one with the way that she would sleep. As a new mom, I couldn’t help but take a few snaps at ‘em… and by a few snaps – I meant A LOT! Here are some snippets of the many faces my lil’ Kheir-bear has been giving us whilst asleep…

How adorable? I wish I know what she’s dreaming about. I’m soo curious! So aside from her adorable faces whilst sleeping – I don’t know if you noticed in the pictures, but her wandering hands also play a major role. Here are more pics of her wandering hands 🙂

I think, all this, she inherited her sleeping ways from her dad. Here are some evidence regarding this theory lol

I know what you’re gonna say – I take waaay too many pictures of my family sleeping. Did I just seem like a creeper mom?But who wouldn’t? Aren’t they just the cutest?? This is why I need more memory on my phone! I wonder what else she got from her daddy!? I Love my family! 

I’m sure that each and everyone of us just loves to captures even the little moments. Share some of your amazing memories with me and Kheira. We would love to see some snippets of your lil’ doves in sleeping positions you guys think are funny, interesting or even weird! Comment box below 🙂

Breast is Best!

I want you all to meet my new best friend – my Medela Swing Pump! My lil’ bundle of joy is here and I just can’t get enough of giving her all the nutrients and vitamins from my breastmilk.

You should know that there are a lot of information out there regarding breastfeeding, and all of them has wonderful things to say about it. There may be people who will tell you about the downside/ disadvantages of it, but its mostly towards the mother and not the baby. And its usually superficial, i.e. sore breasts, cracked nipples, or the pain being unbearable blah blah blah – Just always remember: breastfeeding isn’t for you. It’s for your little miracle!

I, for one, is ecstatic about breastfeeding. Two best things about it (in my opinion is) It’s Nature’s BEST and IT’S FREE! You don’t have to spend for the BEST milk God has given you to provide for your little one. It was so amazing seeing her latch for the very first time. I swear I thought she read a manual, while inside my belly, on ‘how to get milk from mommy’s breast’. She was my lil’ pro!

I’m so grateful for my new friend, Maricel Cua of The Parenting Emporium (formerly known as Medela House). They have been helping me throughout my breastfeeding adventure.

Though we did have our ups and downs, starting with the first week my Kheira came home. She suddenly wasn’t latching on me AT ALL. Like she totally forgot how to breastfeed after being in the hospital. This went on for the whole week. I was very sad and heartbroken. I thought that that was it and she was done! It hasn’t even been at least a month!

Because of the help and support of Maricel, and the rest of the Parenting Emporium family I learned a lot from their breastfeeding workshop/seminar. Plus they really help you out even with the most ludicrous questions you have in mind. It’s amazing how much they can teach you and what you can learn from them. I highly recommend going there and experiencing it first hand.

I would elaborate every single thing I learned from them, but that would just save you guys the adventure of actually sitting down and absorbing all the information yourself. Plus, it’s a good way to also educate your husbands/ partners in this experience. Yes, they need to be there! The dads also need to know their part in breastfeeding. He will be your best support system in time of need. Sometimes information overload can happen and when its too much for you- he can be the other half of your brain. Well, in my case that was where my fiancé stepped in and I’m glad he was there to be part of it as well. I believe it made him understand more of what I’m going through with the process of pregnancy.

Thank you Medela Philippines (Maricel and Beng)  for helping me with my first ever breastfeeding experience! Still going strong because of you guys! ♥

Remember to always get fitted so that when you’re pumping it fit right and its comfortable because those are key into giving your baby your breastmilk for a longer term! ♥

If any of you reading this, residing in the Manila, Philippines, and you are embarking on your breastfeeding journey I highly recommend checking them out for yourself.

How excited were you when you found out you were having a baby? Yeah. Well I wasn’t. This isn’t the best intro in the world, but that was reality. I’m 24 and having a baby. It wasn’t exactly in my life plan. It took a while for me to wrap my head around it. I’m so thankful for, my boyfriend at that time, husband who has been my main support through all this.
