When I first got to know I am pregnant, my husband and I started to study about susu lembu and susu gantung. We calculated, if we use S26 formula milk for the baby, one tin will only last for a week, and it costs 50~60RM/tin. So in a month we will spend about RM200++ just for formula.
So you can calculate how much you will spend for baby formula... So I must breasfeed what ever it is. Plus, my company is very good to provide the mother room where it will be more privacy for a mother to pump their breast milk. And not only that there are a lot of shawl or cloth that you can wear while breast feeding without being noticed. Also, you probably have heard all the breast feeding gadget..
- Breast Pump
- Milk Bottle
- Speacial Bra for Breastfeeding
- Breast Milk storage system etc
What I would like to share is breast feeding storage system. Most of the storage system is expensive in the market which can cost about RM50~60 just for 20 bags, and a bag only keep 9 ounce of milk.
This is very expensive.
I found this reusable milk tray, which I thought will be much more cheaper in keeping/freezing the breast milk from a website and for 2 milk trays, it costs at RM68. What do you do, you freeze your breast milk in the tray, and if every compartment are being used you can transfer to ziplog bag and then just take one/two bars when you want to feed the baby. 1 bar is 1 ounce. Isn't easy?
