Nagpa-pump din ako before ng breastmilk sa office. Im using Avent manual pump. Then nilalagay ko sa freezer sa office para pag-uwi ko malamig pa din.

Ang nakakaloka sa ginawa ko, kc im on sales madalas sa field ako, sa kotse ako nagpa-pump at hindi ganun ka-tinted yung salamin ng kotse! Meron akong nursing wrap pag nagpa-pump ako!

Mahirap talaga pag-iniisip mo pa lang gawin at lalong mas mahirap pag nagsisimula ka pa lang pero masasanay ka na din at mama-master mo pa! ;D You just think, its the best for your baby. then magagawa mo na yun.

Yup!  Kakayanin ko.  Basta iisipin ko na I'm doing it for my baby's well-being.  Siguro I'm going thru baby jitters (hehe...parang wedding jitters!).  Nakaka-overwhelm naman kasi yung responsibility ng pagiging mom.  But although I know I have to make sacrifices, I don't see naman why I should give up my dreams.  Tama naman diba?!  A baby shouldn't be a hindrance.  Dapat maging inspiration pa nga sya for you to do better sa mga endeavors mo.  :)

« Reply #17 on: March 26, 2009, 04:36:06 pm »

Mommies,help naman.. i will go back to work next week. i want to continue giving my baby breastmilk.

what stuff do i need? for now, i only have manual breastpump. a friend will give me medela pump in style but still not here. so, i dont want to buy another one because of financial reason.

aside fr breastpump,i need to bring bottles. is 2 bottles ok?i have plenty of milk.
is it ok to mix the milk in 1 bottle until its full?then to the other bottle..during different times of expressing?then transferred it to 4oz bottles when i get home?is it safe?

plus where will i put the bottles of milk?we dnt have ref in the ofc.and while traveling.should i but a jug?or can u recommend something that is more economical so i dnt need to buy a jug. and its also so big. can i just put it in my bag?

haay.nastress na q mommies. please help me!

ako mommy ang ginagawa ko is pag 9oz yung bottle at 5oz lang ang napump ko ilalagay ko sya sa freezer or kahit sa thermal bag lang then pag nag pump ulit ako for example 3oz ang napump ko palalamigin ko muna sya pag lumamig na ng konti itatransfer ko na sya dun sa na una kong ipump... at pag papadedehen na si baby lalagyan ko lang ng milk ko yung 4oz bottle niya then pag nagutom yung natira naman... di naman napapanis eh but syempre tikman mo pa rin before ibigay kay baby...always remember na unahin mo yung unang bottle na na pump mo kahit yung 1st bottle eh mix (1st and 2nd pump)......
bout sa jug buy ka na lang ng thermal bag then punuin mo ng ice para di masira yung milk. mura lang thermal bag 400 lang ata bili ko dun.... ;)

Pareho tayo, balik na rin ako sa office next week...ayoko pa nga e huhuhu  :'(

Medela din ang gagamitin ko, pero Swing. Sa separate thermal bag ko ilalagay yung milk ko. If i'm not mistaken ha, may kasamang thermal bag and bottles yung Pump in Style. Better ask your friend about it nalang before you buy anything.

May tanong ako sa mga mommies n nageelectric pump: ilang oz ang naeexpress ninyo sa work and how often do you express? Ano brand gamit nyo? Is it enough for your baby or do you still use formula?

Share nyo naman mga experience nyo...

ok nga tong tip mo sis. nabasa q nga din na mas fresh ang milk, mas ok. at mas ok ang nasa ref lang kaysa nasa freezer..

gagawin q nga yan sis.

sana magenough na yung pump sa gabi at sa umaga..

thanks for the rep sis.

feeling ko sulit naman mag electric pump kasi 2-3 months worth ng formula lang yon, e yung electric pump magagamit mo pa for a longer period. not to mention na mas healthy ang breast milk.

i heard kasi from our neighbor that their 4-month-old grandson consumes 8k worth of milk every month (NAN)!!!! e halos isang medela swing na yon sa ebay (brand new, sealed). hehe yung bili ko sa akin 9.5k sa ebay nga sa monday ddating. sana sulit naman.

cassie, san ka nag eexpress sa office? hindi ba awkward mag express sa cr?

sis SAHM ako... pag nasa labas ako at engorged na talaga yung breast ko sa car ako nag eexpress ng milk...
ako mommy ang ginagawa ko is pag 9oz yung bottle at 5oz lang ang napump ko ilalagay ko sya sa freezer or kahit sa thermal bag lang then pag nag pump ulit ako for example 3oz ang napump ko palalamigin ko muna sya pag lumamig na ng konti itatransfer ko na sya dun sa na una kong ipump... at pag papadedehen na si baby lalagyan ko lang ng milk ko yung 4oz bottle niya then pag nagutom yung natira naman... di naman napapanis eh but syempre tikman mo pa rin before ibigay kay baby...always remember na unahin mo yung unang bottle na na pump mo kahit yung 1st bottle eh mix (1st and 2nd pump)......
bout sa jug buy ka na lang ng thermal bag then punuin mo ng ice para di masira yung milk. mura lang thermal bag 400 lang ata bili ko dun.... ;)

watdyamean palalamigin muna sis?pagkapump dahil warm pa yung milk,palalamigin bago itransfer dun sa unang na pump na nasa thermal bag?

pagkauwi mo sis d mo na freezer? ref lang ok na?

sige sis buy na lang ako thermal bag. thanks so much for the reply sis.

yes sis palamigin mo muna bago mo itransfer dun sa una mong na pump na milk.... ganun ginagawa ko nun.... pag nag express naman ako sa labas pag uwi ko check ko muna if may enuf pa yung milk niya pag hindi na enuf yung stock niya na milk sa ref ko na lang ilalagay para hindi masyado malamig pag dinede niya....
sis wag mo sa door ng ref or freezer ilagay yung milk ha, ilagay mo sya near sa blower (or yung pinag lalabasan ng lamig).... i think kaya mo mag BF ng pure mahirap nga lang.... tyagain mo lang... ako nun pag alam kong aalis ako kinabukasan buong araw ako nagpupump para ma sure ko na madami milk si ej, alam mo yung napump ko umaabot pa ng 2days niya na milk knowing ang takaw sa milk ng baby ko hehe

hmm.  i've been back to work na for the last nine months and i still breastfeed my baby.  the number of bottles that you need depends kung marami ka milk. ako, i bring along 3 5oz bottles kasi yun lang kaya ko express.  3-4x ako express sa office, 8-11-1-3.  maganda kung may makita ka room na pwede ka mag-express para may privacy ka.  tried kasi dati sa cr, medyo mahirap sya. tsaka icky. i was super, extra careful na hindi dumikit any important part ng pump sa any surface sa cr. whew.

pwede mo mix yung na-express na milk from different sessions for as long as halos same temp na sila. so sessions 1 and 2, lagay ko muna sa ref. when its time for session 3, mix ko na yung milk expressed from previous sessions.

yung medela pis, may kasama na sya na cooler bag w/ ice pack.  kung wala ka ref, the cooler bag will do.  sabi it can keep your milk cool for 12hrs.  from experience, kelangan frozen talaga yung ice pack para sya mag-last ng 12hrs. may mga mura naman na thermal bag na nabibili sa mall. i believe yung lock&lock, less than 500 lang. haven't tried it yet, though.

mas marami ka nga makukuha milk pag sabay mo habang feed si baby. however, medyo tricky sya lalo na pag medyo malaki na sya.  my rjed pulls at the pump's tubes and kicks the bottle pag sinasabay ko sa feed niya kaya medyo mahirap.

if you're going back to work na next week, i suggest you have a sort of 'practice run'.  try mo lumabas ng bahay whole day, see kung pano ang magiging sistema mo pag-express pag halimbawa nasa office ka na.  take note din sa amount of milk na nauubos ng baby mo while you're away para alam mo kung how much ang kailangan mo i-express sa office.  i still express milk sa gabi kasi i found na di enough ang na-express ko sa office to meet my baby's demand. 

medyo mahirap, pero kaya.  and its all worth it  ;D

good luck!
