PAMPANGA - With her abundant supply of breast milk, Katrina Velasquez-Puno can probably feed all the babies in a barangay.

Velasquez-Puno, a first-time mother, has been breastfeeding her son Marcus since he was born.

She has been producing more breast milk than her son can consume.

On average, Velasquez-Puno can produce 48 ounces of milk everyday.

Instead of letting her milk go to waste, she has been preserving her breast milk by putting it in special bags and keeping them in an upright freezer.

When Typhoon Yolanda hit the country last year, Velasquez-Puno donated her excess milk to babies in typhoon-ravaged areas.

According to doctors, Velasquez-Puno's condition is normal.

"In the old times, one mother can feed a barangay dahil sa breast milk so this is normal," said Dr. Jane Miclat, an obstetrician-gynecologist.

Velasquez-Puno encourages all mothers to breastfeed their babies.

"Sa mga mommy, dapat kahit ano pa ginagawa mo, i-breastfeed mo ang baby mo," she added.
