When I was pregnant, I took time to attend various breastfeeding classes. Now I'm still able to exclusively breastfeed my 4.5 months old baby despite having to work away from home. Recently, my 4-month preggy colleague asked me on the cost of buying a pump. I recommended her the Spectra because it's the cheapest double electric pump that I know. And when I saw this giveaway, I immediately thought of winning this for her. I was overjoyed to hear that she have decided to breastfeed her baby as she was inspired to see me pumping in the office everyday. Her name is Ruby Libo-on, due on Sept. She works as a warehouse staff while her husband works as a security guard. Their combined salaries barely meet their monthly expenses for a family of 3. Not being able to breastfeed her first born really ate up a chunk of their income.
And surprisingly, my entry was chosen! I was so happy for my colleague Ruby. "Ask and you shall receive." When I informed her about the good news, she was so thankful and committed herself to breastfeed her second child.
Ruby: Mas healthy kasi si baby pag sa akin dumididi, hindi kagaya sa formula na sakitin gaya ng panganay ko dati, sakitin kasi formula siya.
Ruby: Inventory assistant, Monday to Friday yung pasok ko.
Ruby: Wala pero my area naman na pwede mag pump.
Ruby: Pag sa bahay ako direct, tapos nag-iiwan ako ng gatas. Tapos pag sa trabaho naman, nag-ppump ako.

Sally: Maari niyo bang ikwento ang pagsusubok na naranasan ninyo habang nasa trabaho at sabay ang pagpapasuso?
Ruby: Pag sa trabaho na ko binibigyan ko ng oras yung pag-ppump. Yung baby ko kasi naiwan sa bahay so nag-iiwan na lang ako ng milk para sa kanya. Umiinon talaga ako ng maraming tubig saka mga liquid na pamparami ng gatas. May time talaga na parang kumokonti yung milk ko, ininuman ko ng malunggay capsule.
Ruby: Kumain at uminom ng pamparami ng gatas. Tiyaga sa pagdadala ng pump para my pasalubong na milk pag-uwi kay baby. Saka bigyan talaga ng oras yung pag-ppump para hindi mawawala yung gatas.
