Is it possible...?
Is it possible to stop supplementing with formula and totally switch to pure breast milk?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions I received from our readers.
To be honest, as a mom with mixed feeding history, this question is difficult to answer.
I myself, was not able to wean from formula until my son (first baby) was 18 months old back then (yet, I was soo happy to be able to finally breastfeed him again – no formula needed, even though it was so so late).
That does not mean it is not possible.
I’ve heard a lot of successful stories on how a mom was able to transition to fully breastfeeding from the initial supplementation.
And today, I am so lucky to present one success story here.
Meet Canny Ong
She is a first-time mom, who once struggled to breastfeed her baby (with 80% supplementation + 20% breast milk).
But with her persistence efforts, she is able to mostly breastfeed her baby (pushing the supplementation down to only 20% by the end of the third month, the rest is pure breast milk).
What an achievement!
I believe you must be super curious, what did she do to boost her milk supply to be finally on par with her baby's demand?
Let's hear her story out.
