Today I wish to share a unique yet the hardest struggle I had to face in raising my little daughter, but first let me tell you a little about myself. Hello! Myself Pooja Jain and I am a stay at home mom of a little munchkin, whom we can call baby V.
When I first got to know that I am pregnant till the time I delivered my baby girl I was always full of worries ….always thinking about how I will be able to care for my kid but never in my wildest dreams I never thought that I’ll have to struggle in feeding my kid….i always imagined it to be the most natural and easy part of motherhood.
But boy was I wrong, I had to have an emergency c-section and my baby was preemie baby due to low birth weight, so she was kept in the nursery for 3 days, where was fed top-feed from a little cup. And even though after 1.5 day every time she was hungry I tried to feed her but she was unable to latch properly.
Having lost my mother just 6 months before my marriage I never felt so alone in life and no matter how much my mother-in-law or other relatives tried I was losing all hopes and motivation. As whenever I tried to feed her she use to shriek with hunger and we has to succumb to cup feed, but somewhere in the back of my mind someone was always nagging me to keep trying….and try I did.
And my work did paid off after trying for 4 days she was finally able to latch herself. I never thought that such little success will give me so much joy; I guess that’s how we mothers are.
So I just want to say to all fellow moms n mom-to-be’s that whatever problem is just keep yourself motivated and don’t give up for the sake of your kid.
