He couldn't latch properly for a little over a month and would get upset when he failed to latch again and again. While he cried, I would get letdown and there was milk spraying everywhere! Haha! Those were the days...
I also remember a lactation consultant came to assist me at the hospital while I was so clueless about breastfeeding. I thought that because Raees wouldn't latch, he didn't want to feed! While helping me, I specifically recall her saying,"second child nanti you akan expert dah."
Well, I wouldn't call myself 'expert'. Just 'more experienced'. I'm sure she would be proud to know that Raees eventually became a BF baby for almost 2.5 years :)
So with this second pregnancy, I'm as prepared as I can be. I gained a lot of useful information all this while and the time will soon come for me to apply it. Got myself a new pump for a start. Smaller and more convenient, I'm super satisfied with this purchase.
Only a few days left til my due date. So excited! Can't wait to meet the little one :)
