Remember when Kapuso celebrity mom Kylie Padilla shared a snap of her breastfeeding her firstborn, Baby Alas Joaquin? The first-time parent published the photo on her Instagram page in December of 2017, then a netizens’ debate on breastfeeding in public took place in the post’s comments section.
Fast forward to the present day, in commemoration with the month of breastfeeding, Kylie touched the subject matter yet again through a creative shot of her breastfeeding Alas. She wrote:
“You know that look your baby gives you when your little one wants to feed? how she or he pulls down your top and tells you FEED ME kahit pa maraming tao sa paligid? And you remember how before you got pregnant nahihiya hiya ka pang makita ng iba ung katawan mo, ngaun wala ka ng pakialam kasi mas importanteng mabusog ung anak mo?”
The returning GMA-7 star went on:
“And you know how baby teeth are growing but we are still breastfeeding so sometimes may konting kagat here and there? Ngaun sanay ka na sa monster baby teeth biting! Remember SLEEP? Yeah it’s still a thing.”
As of press time, Kylie’s post has amassed over 45,000 hearts from her followers. Tons of online users also praised her for being a doting, responsible parent to her baby with fiancé Aljur Abrenica. On top of it all, she also mentioned in her lengthy post that she initially planned to breastfeed Baby Alas Joaquin for a year. But now, she finds herself “rethinking” if she will extend it.
“It’s more about the bond, that I can’t let go of. Apart from the struggles, breastfeeding is one of my favourite things about being mama. Even though sometimes it has been one of the most frustrating at the same time.
Happy breastfeeding month to all mamas! You’re all doing great! Though a whole night’s sleep would sound great, don’t think Alas will allow it just yet.”
