  • New moms Camille Co, Patti Grandidge, and Regine Angeles agree that each pregnancy is unique. Camille gave birth to her first baby in late March 2021 and Patti had her second child in mid-April, while Regine became a mom the second time back in late October 2020.

    Patti thought she already prepared well and brought all the essentials to the hospital. But when she and her husband got there, her breasts “got so engorged” that she  "thought they're gonna explode."

    The now mom of two knew she needed to express the milk. Problem was, she didn’t bring a breast pump with her.

    "I literally had the Philips breast pump sent to my room,” Patti said during the recent online event for the baby care brand Philips Avent. "I have so much milk this time."

    The model/baker/event host added that her breasts also grew so big when she gave birth to her first-born but not as big as with her second child. She also didn't bring a breast pump the first time around, so she thought she wouldn't need it again.


    On the other hand, Camille felt her boobs remained the way they've always been throughout her pregnancy.

    "Before giving birth, I was checking out my boobs," she recalled during the online event. "My boobs did not grow at all."

    The travel and fashion blogger added that she got worried that she wouldn't be able to produce milk with her seemingly unchanging breast size. So she sought the advice of birthing coach Chiqui Brosas-Hahn, who was also a panelist at the online event. She realized it's about having the right mindset.

    "Finally when I started breastfeeding, it was such a totally painful experience," Camille said. "All mommies say labor is nothing. Breastfeeding is painful. No words could explain what I felt at that time."

    Meanwhile, Regine can't help comparing her experiences: "For my first pregnancy, I didn’t experience any morning sickness. I was working until I was 8 months pregnant."

    The actress added, "I was taping. With my second, I was stuck here at home. I was experiencing morning sickness for the first 3 months, and all day. I adjusted a lot."

    Worse, Regine said, "I got pregnant during the peak of the lockdown. It was so hard." When she'd have a food craving, for instance, she would end up cooking it herself.


    She still cooks a lot these days, when her baby's already 6 months old. That's because neither her husband nor their helper know their way around the kitchen. She also busies herself breastfeeding the baby and supervising the toddler's homeschooling.
