August is Breastfeeding Awareness month. After sharing the event on Hakab Na!, which I heard was successful, I’d like to share this news to those who are planning on breastfeeding. During the time I was breastfeeding, this book really helped me a lot by giving me the inspiration and the motivation that I needed to continue on breastfeeding. The book is entitled Breastfeeding: A Journey Worth Taking.
This book is actually written by my good friend and author, Teresa Gumap-as Dumadag. The good news that I’d like to share is that she released the Kindle version of her book! Way to go, Teresa!
A lot of moms from various fields have read this book. Dr. Jamie Isip-Cumpas, who is a consultant for the Medical City’s Lactation Unit says, “Teresa inspires readers with her own breastfeeding journey: her perseverance, strong faith and unwavering love for her children made her overcome the challenges she encountered. She imparts helpful and practical tips from breastfeeding positions to nursing wear and even collaborated with other mothers to share their own breastfeeding stories. All breastfeeding mothers can certainly relate to this book. I’ve already kept a copy in my clinic for all my patients to read.” She has breastfed all her three children.
Teresa is the first Filipino to author and publish a book on breastfeeding on Amazon. And guess what?! It became an Amazon Best Seller in 2 categories (Motherhood and Child Care) during the 3-day free book promotion last Aug 1-3.
Teresa breastfed both of her sons for at least two years each, discusses breastfeeding basics in her book as well as her own breastfeeding story that was replete with challenges. She also features stories of triumph over breastfeeding challenges by moms from different walks of life — stay-at-home moms, work-at-home moms and moms working outside the home.
This book project by the author was sponsored in part by the following breastfeeding-related businesses: MomBabyFabric, Indigobaby, Mamaway Philippines, Elin, First Vita Plus Natural Health Drink, Latch a Babe Nursing Wear, Mama.Baby.Love, Mama Chows, Medela Moms Inc., Mommyfide PH, Mommy Matters, Moringana by Organics Asia, Sweet Pea Nursingwear and Zalor Massage Services.
