Katarina Rodriguez Shares Her Heartfelt Journey into the World of Breastfeeding

Sep 1, 2023 0 comments


In the captivating world of Miss World Philippines 2018, Katarina Rodriguez, the dazzling runway lights may have dimmed, and the glamour of the stage may have taken a back seat, but something extraordinary has taken center stage—the enchanting journey of motherhood. As she gracefully transitions from the runway to the gentle rhythms of the nursery, Katarina discovers that there is nothing quite like being a mother.

As August wraps up, Katarina's Instagram posts have taken on a different tune, one that resonates with the hearts of mothers everywhere—a heartfelt ode to breastfeeding.


In her latest Instagram posts, Katarina shares a collection of photos, unapologetically embracing the raw and real moments of motherhood. She confesses with a chuckle, "many not so glamorous ones lol," dedicated solely to her breastfeeding journey, a journey that has become her full-time job for the past two years. Katarina's world revolves around Quino and Clara, and yes, sometimes, both at once.

A Peek into the World of Breastfeeding

Katarina's personal journey is a tapestry woven with intriguing threads, and she's only halfway there, unless, as she humorously adds, she gets pregnant again. But the revelation came with the realization of how profoundly emotional this journey is, not just for the mother but for the baby too.

Within the pages of Katarina's journey, there are chapters filled with beautiful, quiet moments—moments of connection and bonding during feeds. She paints a picture of tandem feeding, where she witnesses her children gazing into each other's eyes, sharing laughter, and even holding hands. It's a poignant reminder of the love that blossoms between siblings through the nurturing act of breastfeeding. Her cherished times include reading stories to Quino or Clara, their tiny heads gently latching on, as the moonlight bathes their room.


Yet, like any adventure, there are obstacles to conquer. Katarina admits to relying on ice packs, hot packs, and the infamous cold lettuce trick, well-known to experienced moms. Time management becomes a constant strategic game, and tantrums emerge when one wants "dede" while the other is lulled into slumber. She's had her share of dehydration due to this challenging juggling act. Work opportunities have even been sacrificed, solely because she couldn't bring her baby along.

In the quiet hours of her days, Katarina's prayers have evolved. She seeks divine guidance to ensure her own health, vital to continue breastfeeding Clara, and the emotional courage to wean Quino. The emotions tied to breastfeeding, she confesses, span from happiness to sadness, two polar opposite worlds. Mothers, she reflects, go through a whirlwind of experiences—physically, emotionally, and within their hearts. They often bear these feelings alone, from embarrassment to anxiety to daydreams, all while hoping that whatever they do is for the best of their little ones.


To all the mothers out there on their unique journeys, whether breastfeeding, pumping, tandem feeding, weaning, or making any other decision, Katarina extends her admiration and encouragement. She knows that you're doing your best, and every choice you make is driven by boundless love for your children. Her advice rings true: "Keep on researching, keep asking questions, and keep trusting your mama instincts!"

In sharing her personal journey, Katarina Rodriguez has opened a window into the world of motherhood, where beauty and challenges coexist, and where love knows no bounds. As August, the month of breastfeeding awareness, draws to a close, we salute not only Katarina but all mothers, each nurturing their precious ones, one heartbeat at a time.
