Regine Angeles's son Alesso is now three months old.


Three months after giving birth to Baby Alesso, Regine Angeles revealed her first frightening experience as a first-time mom.

It happened in October, when her son was only two weeks old.

On Instagram, she recalled, "There were red-orangey like crystals inside his diaper. A sign of dehydration.

"Turns out I wasn't producing enough milk. His weight dropped."

Naturally, she panicked.

"I was crying. Imagine the horror of being a first-time mom and knowing that you're not providing enough for the needs of your child.

"Ay, grabe iyak ko, pang-teleserye!"

But she insisted on feeding Alesso with breast milk.

Luckily, she and husband Van Victor Leano found a milk donor for a week, while she worked on increasing her milk supply with some help from a lactation consultant and lactation capsules.

Looking at Regine's latest picture of Alesso, he is a healthy and happy baby, who turned three months last January 2.

Lesson learned from her true story: Do not easily give up.

Make sure you have a strong support system. 

And if you need breast milk donors, there are Facebook pages with active members who are more than willing to donate.
