  • Neri Miranda salutes breastfeeding moms with nursing photo

    As her way of joining the breastfeeding month celebration this August, mom Neri Miranda posted a photo of herself breastfeeding her son Miggy on Instagram. She accompanied her post with a caption that praised all other nursing moms. "Mahirap, nakakapagod, minsan mararamdaman mo na parang may naiipitang ugat... Pero worth it lahat lahat lalo na alam mong healthy si baby," Neri wrote. She's thankful to be able to breastfeed, and promises to continue as long as she still has milk and Miggy still wants to breastfeed. 

    Neri also appeased moms who couldn't nurse their baby. "Sa lahat ng mga mommies na di biniyayaan ng gatas, ok lang din yan, isipin nyo na lang palagi ay hindi naman nagtatapos ang pag aaruga sa mga anak natin sa pamamagitan ng pagsuso lamang," she wrote. "Ang importante ay napapakain natin ang mga anak natin ng maayos at naaalagaan ng mabuti. Mahalin ng buong buhay," Neri said. A lot of other moms were inspired by her post, as evidenced in the comments.

"I was already blessed enough to meet the man of my dreams.... and now YOU!" Michelle wrote in the caption. "Pregnancy is one of the most amazing things that ever happened to me.

The soon-to-be mom announced her pregnancy in May, then got engaged to her American beau, former football player Troy Woolfolk, in July.

    "I'm so happy to be with you every day, witnessing all of your milestones... Every day I get to see your beautiful smile and hear your cute laugh... Me, mum, and your brother will always be here for you. We love you and forever wish you the best. I can't wait to see more of your achievements as the years go on," wrote Aliyah's dad on Instagram. Happy birthday, Aliyah Rose! (
