My freezer...

My expressed breastmilk is now resident in my freezer, I can hardly squeeze in any more. I even contemplated with the idea of getting a chest freezer. But well, since I'm back to work, the older dated milk will be moving out and making way for newer dated milk.

In fact, I've two refrigerators in my home! One for frozen food and the other for frozen milk. Just so that the smell of the food isn't breathed into the milk. I'm proud of my milking achievement, but I'm not sure how long my breastfeeding career will continue. I don't find it condusive to express milk in my office, as there's no proper room. It's also quite a hassle transporting pump and milk to and fro everyday. More importantly, I quite dislike washing my pump many times a day.

Milk, not vanilla ice-cream

Many say breastmilk is the best graded milk, it gives the best immunity, nutrients and etc. Different researches give different analysis, I don't read them too seriously anyway. The experiments are always evolving. To me, the best about breastmilk is the huge savings on formula milk, and latching gives me great bonding too. I missed this bonding badly when I stopped breastfeeding Jazz. I'm glad to have the feel back with Jareth again. I love having him close to me and combing my palms over his hair whenever he milks.
