Lucia desde el día de su nacimiento, cuando salimos de quirófano estaba pegadita de su tética, esa conexión es hermosa, te desconectas del mundo y eres solo tú y tú bebe. Ver su carita y sus manitos aferradas a ti es algo mágico, no existen palabras para describir esa sensación. ❤️
Breastfeed or Bottle? Everyone's question since we know we are going to be moms. I confess that I was always inclined towards exclusive breastfeeding, as I had read the benefits and advantages of breast milk during pregnancy and I really dreamed of being able to feed my princess Lucia in that way.❤️
Lucia from the day of her birth, when we left the operating room, was close to my chest, that connection is beautiful, you disconnect from the world and it is only you and you, baby. Seeing her face and her little hands clinging to you is something magical, there are no words to describe that feeling.

Y bueno, como siempre no puede faltar el que te diga que no lo estás haciendo bien, que le des tetero a la bebe para que duerma, que tu leche no alimenta, que le des agua para que se llene, en fin mil y un cosas que en vez de ayudar, te estresan; yo me mantuve firme y solo daba pecho a la bebe a pesar del dolor de la adaptación.
La pediatra inicial de Lucia me recomendó mantener la alimentación de la bebe a base de leche materna, pero por condiciones médicas de mi princesa aproximadamente a los 2 meses y medio pasamos de lactancia materna a alimentación complementaria, ósea nos aceleraron la ingesta de alimentos que normalmente es a los 3 meses, también a incluir en su dieta la leche de formula y a continuar con su lactancia materna. Lucia inicialmente no tolero la leche de fórmula, pasamos por varias marcas hasta encontrar la indicada, algunas le generaron cólicos, otras reflujo, hasta que gracias a Dios encontramos una que ella asimilo perfectamente bien. 😉👍
Although not everything was happiness, in my particular case the process of breastfeeding was quite painful, the first days there was no pain but from the first week it was terrible, since the nipples peel while they adapt to that constant suction Of the baby, on the one hand Lucia was crying and on the other hand I was crying too, the adaptation is strong, but thank God I had the support of my mother in those days, and with her techniques she helped me a lot, too It is very important to take into account the breastfeeding positions, since that facilitates the feeding of the baby and reduces the fatigue of the breast a little.
And well, as always, you cannot miss the one who tells you that you are not doing it well, that you give the baby a bottle so that it sleeps, that your milk does not feed, that you give it water so that it is filled, in short, a thousand and one things that instead of helping, they stress you out; I stood my ground and only breastfed the baby despite the pain of adjustment.
Lucia's initial pediatrician recommended that I keep feeding the baby with breast milk, but due to my princess's medical conditions at approximately 2 and a half months we went from breastfeeding to complementary feeding, that is, they accelerated the intake of foods that normally It is at 3 months, also to include formula milk in their diet and to continue breastfeeding. Lucia initially did not tolerate formula milk, we went through several brands until we found the right one, some generated colic, others reflux, until thank God we found one that she assimilated perfectly well.

Actualmente mi Lucia continua tomando teteros, en la mañana al despertar sus buenos días son un besito + un abrazo y: "Mami teté"; y en la noche antes de dormir después que le colocamos la pijama también reclama su teterito, claro ahora es más grande y ya lo toma con leche completa y cereales como arroz o avena.
All the doctors who have seen my baby have recommended that I breastfeed until 2 years of age because breast milk certainly immunizes, it is the most complete food that your baby can receive, it contains all the minerals and nutrients necessary for their healthy growth and development. Nowadays Lucia is 2 years and 5 months old, and just 1 month ago it was that we stopped the therapy because I suffer from cervicoarthrosis and they indicated a strong treatment that prevented me from continuing to breastfeed, because if I do not think that I was still breastfeeding or "taking chichica" as she tells him.😆
Currently, my Lucia continues to drink bottles, in the morning when she wakes up her good morning is a kiss + a hug and: "Mommy Bottle"; And at night before going to sleep after we put on her pajamas, she also claims her little Bottle, of course now it's bigger and she already takes it with whole milk and cereals like rice or oatmeal.

I confess that if Lucia's health condition had allowed me, I would have continued with exclusive breastfeeding, in my particular opinion it is something magical and gratifying to breastfeed your baby and to know that with that you protect her and help her developing. And also because Lucia really enjoyed breastfeeding, she had as a favorite soothing therapy, therapy if she cried, therapy for afternoon naps, therapy for sleeping at night and therapy whenever possible hahahaha!
Thank you very much for reading my publication, for allowing me to participate and share my experiences with Princess Lucia! God bless you!😘
