Yasmine Vargas’ recent post on social media is an emotional but inspiring one about motherhood.
KAMI learned that Yasmine had to stop breastfeeding her two-year-old son Cristiano after his pediatrician told her it was time to transition to cow’s milk.
According to Alfred Vargas’ wife, she became emotional when she had to stop because breastfeeding was her bonding time with Cristiano.
However, she later realized that their relationship became better since his son now approaches her to cuddle and play instead of just latching onto her.
“Three days ago, I breastfed Cristiano for the last time. Twenty-five months and 2 days of direct feeding (he always refused the bottle).
“I actually planned to stop a year ago but then Cristiano got confined and I decided to postpone. This time it was his pedia’s decision. I was more than ready. I knew that it was a good time to end this phase of our lives. But somehow I felt very emotional about it.
“So during that last feed I had a few tears in my eyes. We had been slowly approaching this moment since last month.
“Cutting down feedings one at a time, removing first the night feeds. A week later, the morning feeds, and 3 weeks later, the naptime feeds, replacing breast milk with fresh milk and a little bit of chuckie in a cup.
“To my surprise he handled the dropping of feeds with ease. He only cried the first 2 nights and fell asleep in his Daddy’s arms.
“Every day he repeatedly tries to put his hand down my shirt to try to feed but when I tell him ‘no more dede’, he would just say, ‘oh’. Then he stops and smiles at me with his kulit face like ‘Mommy, I had to try.’ Grabe, super cute niya! Ang hirap mag ‘no’.
“I think what made me feel sad is that breastfeeding was our special bonding time. I was his nutrition, his comfort, his safe place. And I didn’t want to lose that.
“But as with anything in life, this ending marks a chance for a new beginning. A new relationship with Cristiano. And finally when he sees me he doesn’t approach me just to latch. Now, he likes to cuddle and play more. Definitely being mother is the best thing that ever happened to me,” Yasmine posted on Instagram.
