ANMUM Lacta Milk Powder

It’s confession time.
I have been reminiscing a lot recently, mostly about my girls when they were still babies.





I miss having a tiny baby in my arm, or haha one baby in each arm. I miss that sweet baby smell. I miss those warm, tiny hands holding mine. I miss their toothless smiles. I miss folding tiny baby clothes and giggling at how small they are. I miss all those wonderful firsts – first smile, first word, first crawl, first giggle, first steps, and…


I will never forget this picture because besides the fact that my left eye was swollen, the twins’ arrival really changed everything and made me realize what motherhood is *REALLY* about.

Just look at how happy Sharleez was to be the big sister to not one but two baby girls! Awwwww.

And oh my goodness, I miss breastfeeding so much. Nothing can be more amazing than to be able to nourish another human being and connecting them in so many ways while doing so. Sharleez was breastfed longer than Mysha and Myreen and it was partly because she was a singleton. Believe me, I tried my very best to go longer with my twins. Even tried the football hold, crisscross position, and parallel position too! What other methods did I not try? But gosh, when both twins wanted to be fed at the same time all the time, I decided to partially breastfeed them. They were babies then, what did they know about taking turns and waiting to be fed? With Sharleez, I could have gone longer too had I not been pregnant with Myreen and Mysha. When I was still teaching back then, I remember always feeling very excited each time the school bell rang because it meant I could finally go home to Sharleez and surrender my err..boobs to her? The moment I reached the house gate, I would see Sharleez crawling/walking/running to the gate. The joy in her face was beyond words. I would immediately carry her to the room, lie down on the bed with her, and breastfeed her for as long as she wanted.

Want to know my secret to good breastfeeding?

First way to increase your milk supply is to ensure that you eat well and get enough nutrients, and one good way of doing so is just by drinking ANMUM Lacta Milk Powder.

Anmum Lacta is the only milk specially formulated for breastfeeding mums in Singapore and contains DHA. DHA is naturally found in breastmilk. Anmum Lacta also contains Gangliosides, Sialic Acid and DHA. Gangliosides are complex fat components found in brain tissues. And the best thing of it all, Anmum Lacta is low on calories but excellent on taste. So you do not have to worry too much about gaining more weight by drinking Anmum Lacta.

Sometimes, breastfeeding mums find it hard to find time for themselves, what more to eat properly and take in the right amounts of nutrients for themselves and their child? Therefore, drinking two glasses of Anmum daily really helps. I tried it and just like Anmum Materna, it is neither too thick, too sweet, too creamy, or too rich. Try it yourself to believe me!

And of course, in order to have a good supply of breast milk, you need to breastfeed regularly. The initial stage of breastfeeding is not easy, what with the sore breasts, lack of milk, and yeah latching on difficulties, but the only way to increase supply of breast milk is to keep up with the demand. Basic Economics. Even if you are not with your baby, you still have to PUMP! So it’s either breastfeed every 2 hours or pump every 2 hours. No MCs. No off days. No public holidays. If truth be told, when I was still teaching back then, I almost went berserk in school every day trying to find time to express my breast milk. So on days when I had two to three periods free, I would spend one full period pumping. On days when I had only one free period, I would still use that period to pump. It did not matter that I did not get to sit down to take a breather because as long as I got to express, I was already one happy bunny. So my point is, no matter how busy you can get at work or anywhere else, when you are a breastfeeding mum, you have got to make time to express your milk. If I could do it, so can you!

You want to know how much breastfeeding my girls meant to me?
Here’s an excerpt from my old blog again.

And mind you, I was not fully breastfeeding my twins but I could still be that affected. See, even though M&Ms were not fully breastfed, I took great pride in whatever latching on period I had with them. The expressed milk meant so much more to me than Tiffany & Co. even. Why, my expressed milk contained the perfect combination of gems like protein, vitamins and of course Gangliosides, Sialic Acid and DHA.

So breastfeeding mummies, keep on breastfeeding for as long as you can. And get as much nutrients you can because always remember that your baby drinks whatever you take in.

The following email is from CT Farhana who drank Anmum Lacta while breastfeeding.


Mummies, if you are still contemplating whether or not to breastfeed your baby, perhaps you might want to read the following too.


1. Breastfeeding boosts your baby’s immune system
Studies show that babies who have been breastfed exclusively have better functioning immune systems and have added protection against allergies, asthma, Crohn’s disease, eczema, heart disease, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, lymphoma, respiratory infections, and Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Breastmilk contains antibodies and gives an infant immunity to illnesses that the mother is immune to. Also, if a baby is exposed to a germ, he/she will transfer it back to the mother while nursing. The mother’s body will then manufacture antibodies to that particular germ and transfer them back to the baby at the next feeding.

2. Breastfeeding is good for your baby’s brain
Breastfed babies tend to have higher IQs than babies fed with infant formula. An 18-year study of over 1,000 children showed that kids who were breastfed achieved more academically than kids who were formula-fed as babies. Interestingly, breastfed babies spend more time in what is called the “quiet alert” state, which is most conducive for learning.

3. Breastfeeding reduces the risk of obesity
Breast milk contains high levels of adiponectin, a protein which affects how the body processes fat. Low levels of adiponectin have been associated with coronary artery disease, insulin resistance, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. The risk of obesity appears to be lowered the longer a child is breastfed.

4. Breastfeeding helps babies develop emotionally
Babies need to be held. The physical act of nursing is one of the most comforting things for a newborn. Leaving a baby alone with a bottle does not make him/her feel safe or secure. Breastfeeding also stimulates the release of the hormone, oxytocin, which facilitates maternal behavior and bonding between mothers and their newborns.

5. Breastfeeding reduces the mother’s risk of cancer and other diseases
Breastfeeding women were shown to have a lower risk of breast and ovarian cancers and osteoporosis later in life.

6. Breastfeeding helps mothers lose weight faster
Mothers who breastfeed return to their pre-pregnancy weight faster. A woman needs about 500 calories daily to produce milk and breastfeed – the equivalent of a 5-mile jog. Breastfeeding also stimulates contractions in the uterus that help it go back to its normal, pre-pregnancy size faster and reduce lower body fat.

7. Breastfeeding helps save time and money
Mothers don’t have to prepare bottles and infant formula because breast milk is always fresh and ready to go. The economy has been tough and mothers can save some money because they don’t need to buy infant formula. Breastfed babies also tend to require fewer visits to the doctor and therefore,decreased medical expenses.

So do give breastfeeding a try at least, my fellow mummies.

For the greatest journey you will ever take, trust only Anmum.

And it’s definitely double the joy too when both you and your baby are healthy!


As for me, it was double the joy to be able to breastfeed my twins Mysha and Myreen, even if it was for a short period only. 🙂
