For most moms, the first bonding moment with their baby happens right after giving birth.
That's when they breastfeed their newborn.
But it does not always become a delightful experience because of this common problem: "Latching on," which is when a baby puts his/her mouth around the mother's nipple, and begins to nurse.
Kylie Padilla has been struggling with this since she gave birth to Baby Alas Joaquin last August 4.
In an Instagram post she put out on September 10, the Kapuso star narrated her breastfeeding struggles.
"Yes, I am a breastfeeding mama.
"Alas and I have our own share of struggles with breastfeeding.
"We have had troubles with latching on both sides."
But she has been working on a solution to this problem.
The actress added, "It's hard to watch him get frustrated when he cannot latch during our AM feeds, but we are slowly learning and working through it, since I really want us to reap all the benefits of breastfeeding.
"Not to mention the high that it gives both of us."
Meanwhile, in a separate Instagram post, Kylie shared the "wonders" of placenta, which was defined by MayoClinic.Org as "an organ that develops in the uterus during pregnancy, and provides oxygen and nutrients to a growing baby and removes waste products from the baby's blood."
Most moms actually forget about this after delivery.
A few, according to to WebMD.com, eat it to "raise energy and breast milk quantity; level off the hormones; lower the chances of postpartum depression and insomnia."
Some, like Kylie, make it part of their postpartum mama health care kit.
The daughter of Robin Padilla thanked her doula (birthing companion), Irina Otmakhova, who is the lady behind Conscious Birth Manila.
The Encantadia star wrote, "Just want to share a little about Conscious Birth Manila. This is my postpartum mama health care kit I received from my doula @Irina_doula
"Everything here she made with love because of her passion for every mama's journey of creating life.
"Conscious Birth Manila has made my experience so much more special and meaningful than it already was.
"Who knew our placentas contained so much nutrients and magical healing powers that could be useful even after birth. Happy mine didn't go to waste.
"Thank you Conscious Birth Manila, I feel as if this whole journey was brought to a pleasant and spiritual close with the memorabilia of Alas and I's cord and of course the imprint of my placenta that kept him alive for nine months."
