This post is very late, but Dr. Shagufta deserves the praise. My baby is almost a year old now, and I'm still able to breastfeed her easily. This is my first baby, and I had no idea what breastfeeding entailed. The first two days in the hospital, I was so panicked because I assumed my milk would just be there...I wasn't even sure colostrum was coming out. I was ready to accept that I tried, and my baby would drink formula, which I told myself while pregnant, is a fine option. However, we met shagufta at her clinic in 2 hour session she educated me, and helped me figure out the proper latch, how to hold my baby, and told me how to supplement formula with feeding cup if it would ease my mind. I gave tiny bits of formula those few days, so that I knew my baby was eating. However, after 3 -4 days , my milk fully came in, and we were able to stop supplementing! Dr. Shagufta called me to check in on me, and provide additional support on phone.
Fast forward 3-4 months, I met her again . I was about to return to work, and needed help figuring out how to pump, how often, and how much to give my baby. She watched us do a feed, weighed my daughter before and after, and helped determine how much she was eating. We then came up with a plan of how much milk to leave behind.
Now that I am a year into this journey, I am sad it is almost at an end, but so thankful to have this bond with my daughter, and grateful to Dr. Shagufta for all her help and support.
