As many of you know, I am a breastfeeding mom and I am proud of it. I am glad that these days, there is a wider support for moms like me. Even the government is showing support to breastfeeding. I really think it is high time that more moms should give this natural feeding a shot.
Anyway, I am friends with one breastfeeding/entrepremom over at Facebook and she has posted some questions recently that surprised me or made me think.
Her first question was: If you are to sell your breastmilk, how much will you sell it?.
I am very blessed that after six months, Maxyn is still purely breastfed. It is not easy, I tell you. But I am determined and with everyone’s support, I am able to express enough for her daily consumption and still save for a few days. I think I have stock in our freezer that is good for a week or less. So if I will decide to sell my breastmilk, I can. But I will not. Instead of selling them, I will look NICU’s that are in need of it and will gladly donate them. In that process, I hope to inspire the mommies to also breastfeed. I really wish I can become a breastfeeding counselor someday.
Her other question was: If you will ask your hubby to pay you PhP4000 (the price of formula milk consumption) for every month you breastfeed, where will you spend it?. I wasn’t thinking when I answered her question. My answer was I’ll spend it for self beautification. Hahaha! Of course that is not my final answer. I don’t have a definite answer now. I think I have to think about it. Maybe on gadgets, clothes, kids’ stuff? How I wish my hubby will really pay me for breastfeeding our kids! Hahaha!
How about you, if you were asked the questions above, what would be your response?
