We celebrated Sophie’s first birthday almost 2 weeks ago, and when I think about it, I should also celebrate the next big thing to her birthday. It is also my first year of breastfeeding her! πŸ‘

She is one smart baby, because she knows whats best for her. From birth up to now, she refuses to drink from a bottle (even breastmilk) and formula. Good thing she eats a lot now, but she still needs mommy during her sleeptime, especially at night.

I get teary eyed just thinking about my breastfeeding journey, with just a little support system, I wasn’t sure if I can do it again next time. But thank God for breastmilk, Sophie is one healthy baby! She may not be fat, but she has a lean and strong body. She rarely gets sick. She is also very very smart. Also, it serves as our bonding time, especially when she needs comfort.

I’m not sure for how long I can breastfeed, maybe for as long as she needs me. It maybe a long and difficult journey, but I know it will be worth it in the end. πŸ˜…

Here I am breastfeeding Sophie onboard the Shinkansen. Strike anytime, anywhere. 😊
