I’m a believer in breastfeeding my babies. With my first two boys, I wasn’t able to breastfeed for long. It lasted 8 months with Zayed and 1 year and 1 month with Zayan. With my twins, I’ve been breastfeeding for 1 year and a half month and still going.
Earlier, when I went back to work after having the twins, my babies would still fall sick. I was quite disappointed as I knew that breastfeeding would keep the babies healthy. Maybe I wasn’t breastfeeding them enough. I wasn’t able to express much milk at work. On average, I could get 2 to 4 bottles of 4oz feeding bottles; I’d fill them up to the brim if I could. I guessed it could be because of the tight deadlines and stress at work. That amount of milk is not enough for 2 babies!
Being a full-time mom, I could breastfeed my babies as much as I could. They’re less likely to fall sick nowadays, except that 1 week of stomach flu that my boys caught.
