The only problem I'm happy to have

Welcome to the Milk Mama Diaries Carnival (September). For this month, we will tackle milk sharing and how it can nurture the community, and how this spirit of giving can be sustained. Participants will share their thoughts, experiences, hopes and suggestions on the topic. Please scroll down to the end of the post to see the list of carnival entries.

Ever since I started breastfeeding Jack-Jack, I never thought it was possible that I'd be donating breastmilk to moms who need to supplement their own supply and didn't want to feed formula milk to their babies. I've been eager and hopeful that I'd be one of those lucky moms who have ounces and ounces of frozen breastmilk that their able to fill up an entire freezer. Of course, I was also being realistic, especially since about a week or so that I went back to the office, my frozen stash was almost depleted! So storing a lot of breastmilk in the freezer wasn't an option. Especially since I was using a manual pump then.

Back from the mommy land

It's been quite a while since I posted my birth story here which isn't finished. I admit I haven't made the time to blog when I actually have a lot to talk about!

But anyway, here's to a preview of the next posts I'll have (to force me to write!):

  • Continuation of my birthing story

  • Comparison of the various cloth diapers I have with pictures!

  • Medela's Freestyle vs Ameda's Purely Yours Ultra

  • Plus, I'll be joining CoaNM's September carnival. To join, simply go to here for the mechanics.

    Special thanks to Tiffanny of My Cup of Cocoa for helping me realize that while I may not have a big scope of readers, I do influence a mom, or two, with my experiences thru blogging. And to Jenny of CoaNM for reminding me to blog.
