Waddaya know..it's my 600th post on this blog!! And I'm glad to say this little blog milestone also includes a story about milestone in my life.
I gave my first breastfeeding talk :)
It's more of a forum actually, with the wonderful ladies at Petronas.
They have a very strong breastfeeding support group within the company and they have events like these on an annual basis. I'm glad to be invited as one of the panelist. The title of the forum was "Cabaran Menyusu Si Kecil" (Challenges in Breastfeeding Your Child). With me were three other mothers, all Petronas employees.
One lady is breastfeeding by exclusive pumping. You heard that right. Her child refuses to direct feed so she pumps all the time! The other lady works in a 'hazardous' environment and still breastfeeds her child. The other happens to be the president of the breastfeeding support group, who, like me, travels a lot. And yet she managed to breastfeed all 4 of her children!
It was truly inspiring listening to their stories and I hope what I shared also helped inspire the ladies of Petronas (also known as Petronita) in breastfeeding.
You know, I've always wanted to share my experience with an audience. I'm glad I was given chance to do so :)
