It’s been a year and ____ days since that first day that I went back to the office after my maternity leave. (Had 83 days for my maternity leave) ANG BILIS!
Imagine the Separation Anxiety a mom has to undergo. Simula first day, kaming dalawa na magkasama, tapos biglang kailangan mo na pumasok. Imagine the mind torment a mom has to undergo while she is away from her child. I even remember going to the office driving while crying because you’re to emotional to leave your son. That you even want to make a Uturn to return and kiss him over and over… Which is why I made this step by step instruction for a first time lolo who knows nothing of breastfeeding. All I know is, apo niya yun at gagawin niya lahat para sa apo niya. Until today, Lolo Boy is still taking care of JK whenever me and my husband goes to work. Mas at ease ako sakanya kesa maiwan si JK sa Yaya. Atleast aside from me, there’s this someone who can “manage” JK.
I have no regrets that JK has NO YAYA at all and being a hands-on Mama. Before and after work, I see to it that we do that Mother-Son bonding which is Breastfeeding and playing at the same time. Having no yaya at all will make you a master of your Child. You know every piece about him. Plus the fun fact that you will always be his/her human hero 💙
