    October 6, 2016 at 5:52 pm Thank you Anjelica. I love you . And happy happy birthday. One of the things I really love to do as a mother is breastfeed . My firstborn son loved his breast milk more than anything and he got it till 20months . It was different with my second born ; I had no milk at the hospital when he was born and he cried so much that the midwife advised me to buy formula; which I did and on day two he begun feeding on formula . Day 6 is when I got some milk and later on I had milk.but this my baby would never feel full after breastfeeding and we had to add a bottle of formula on. He was such a hungry baby always eating :) then I had to go back to my work when he was only 5 months ; by 8 months I would struggle to feed him; he rejected my breast milk; he only wanted his bottle. I couldn't afford breast pumps and had no refrigerator to store breast milk. That's was the end of my baby's breastfeeding. He is a healthy boy; still a bit chubby; and I really wish I had a trainer about the best way to feed my baby when he was rejecting my breast milk. I just felt like sharing this with us. So if someone else is going through this; I guess Anjelica or anyone else here can mention on how best this momma can get help.

      October 7, 2016 at 4:57 pm Lyzette, I LOVE that you shared that! You're amazing! What a journey you went through with your second. You clearly value breastfeeding and it sounds like you did everything you could to get as much breastmilk to your second babe. I hope other mamas will find encouragement from your story. How do the women at HOFWIC handle breastfeeding? XO, Anjelica p.s.I'd love to hear other breastfeeding stories as well.
