"Breastfeeding can be challenging. But in spite of the humps and bumps on the road, breastfeeding is a journey definitely worth taking!" This is a quote from my latest book Breastfeeding: A Journey Worth Taking.
Most moms encounter breastfeeding challenges in their breastfeeding journey. That is why it is essential that a mom finds a support group that will help her overcome her challenges. Those challenges can be multiplied if a nursing mom is caring and nursing more than one baby.
I know this to be true because at I was tandem feeding my boys frequently last year. There were times when they were doing this every night. This year, my eldest son (who is over 5 years old) has been breastfeeding less frequently. So, tandem feeding is no longer our norm at night or during afternoon naps.
But as I look back on those times, though they were extra fulfilling, they were certainly extra challenging as well. Thus, I'm glad that "Seeing Doubles" Multiples Support Group will be launched by Medela Moms tomorrow, February 8 at 9 AM at the Medela House in New Manila, Quezon City.
Moms with twins were invited to share their experiences of carrying, giving birth to, breastfeeding, and raising multiples. This would be a great opportunity for couples who are expecting multiples to learn from other parents of multiples. This is close to Medela Mom, Beng Feliciano's heart because she is also a mom of twins.
Committed to being more than just the Philippines' authorized distributor of the most well-known and trusted brand of breastfeeding products, Medela Moms is all about supporting mothers and babies in their breastfeeding journey. This is why they organize learning events related to breastfeeding and parenting, provide breastfeeding counseling if needed, and help coordinate breast milk donations whenever necessary, among other things.
The event is free of charge but attendees are required to pre-register by texting or calling MedelaMoms at 0917-8110821 or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Sign up now to experience the first support group for mommies of multiples in the country! Giveaways, special promos, a candy buffet, and other treats are in store for participating mommies.
