Breastfeeding is a challenge for some moms. I have friends who struggle with their milk supply and their babies are just singletons. Although I am blessed with abundant milk supply for Baby C, I salute moms with twins who are exclusively breastfeeding their babies. When Baby C was 6 months old, she can consume 25 to 32 ounces a day plus direct latching at night. If I have twins, I need to produce around 64 ounces a day to make sure they will have enough milk supply when I am at work. 64 ounces expressed milk a day?! Wow!
If you were able to read one of my first blogposts entitled "My Pumping Paraphernalia at Work", you probably know that I recommend Medela Swing Maxi for working moms. I bought mine from Medela Moms Inc., the exclusive and authorized importer/distributor of Medela Breastfeeding Products in the Philippines. Medela Swing Maxi played and is still playing an important role on my breastfeeding journey.
This February 08, 2014, from 9:00 to 11:00 am at the Medela House, Medela Moms Maricel and Beng, will be launching a support group for couples with multiples. Mommies with twins will share their precious time to talk about their experiences carrying, giving birth to, breastfeeding, and raising multiples! Medela Moms Beng has her own set of double blessings and she will have a special video message plus a special announcement for attendees that day. Although she will not be able to make it on Feb 8, she will be there on the succeeding quarterly meet-ups.
Expecting parents with multiples, this is your chance to ask your questions and satisfy your curiosity. Prepare all your concerns and worries and feel free to ask these moms anything under the sun! They are ready to help you for the arrival of your own set of multiples!
Alongside the launch of MedelaMoms’ “Seeing Doubles” Multiples Support Group, SweetPea, a cocktail/formal nursing wear company will also be launching its line through a fashion show. Celebrity Moms Amanda Jacob and Marilen Faustino-Montenegro and children will be dropping by to share their own modern day mom breastfeeding experiences. Walnut Melbourne PH will be providing the shoewear of their children!
Amanda Jacob will also be conducting a book signing and a limited number of her book, Project Mom, will be on sale that day!
This event is free but pre-registration is required. Sign up by texting 09178110821 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to experience the first support group for mommies of multiples in the country! Giveaways, special promos, candy buffet, and other treats are also in store for participating mommies.
By the way, Baby and I are now on the 15th month of our breastfeeding journey and counting! Hooray! =)
