Confession of a Breastfeeding Mummy

Many people asked me whether I am still breastfeeding my 2.5 months baby, and my answer to them was yes. The respond that I got from them varies… Some actually said that they are too lazy to breastfeed their child, hence they opt not to breastfeed at all. Some said that their milk supply was low from the beginning, hence they ran out of milk by the time they come back from maternity leave.

As for me, I chose to breastfeed my kids exclusively for a year and continue up until they reach at least 2 years old.
I have managed to breastfeed Noah until I was 2 months pregnant with Zayd. It was really a heartbreaking moment to deny him the boobs when he asked for it. However, I was really weak from morning sickness at that point of time that I had to stop.
My breastfeeding journey with Noah had been a pleasant one but also with its ups and downs. I remembered all the pumping sessions at work (thank god I had my own room, though I had to share it with a colleague), even with my boss sitting in front of me. I have also pumped on the plane from KL to Istanbul and Istanbul to KL, with the ex-chief of navy sitting right next to me (but we were on business class, hence, the seats were not too close to each other).
I have also breastfed Noah while watching the kangaroos during our trip to Perth in 2010. I think the kangaroos were watching me feeding Noah instead at one point of time.. hehehe…

My EBM supply at that point of time was not that great. I didn’t have any extra stocks! Noah will consume what I express the day before. So, I memang akan menggelupur if I have to stay late at work, afraid that Noah tak cukup susu. But syukur Alhamdulillah, I have managed to survive and sustain for a year dengan takde EBM stock.
It is a different story for Baby Zayd. I have learnt through my first experience with Noah that I had to start expressing from the 1st week of confinement. My milk supply pun Alhamdulillah banyak this time around (melimpah-limpah). However, with the help of the Premium Beautiful bra, I had no breast engorgement problem like the one I had during Noah’s time. The bra, with the help of FIR helps to reduce engorgement and also helps with the milk production.
Hence, I have managed to store at least 3 weeks worth of EMB stocks by the time I start work. Well, stock takde la sampai sebulan worth coz I was too lazy to pump all the time. But 3 weeks worth of EBM is a lot, considering the fact that I tak pernah dapat simpan that much during Noah’s time.
We even had to purchase a deep freezer as the storage space in our freezer was not enough to store all the EBMs.

Unfortunately, there was a power outage few weeks back when we went for an overnight visit to my in-laws. Habis all my EBMs got spoilt! Memang hacur lulur hati when I had to throw all the EBMs away.
Since then, maybe due to the stress of not having any EBM stock, my milk supply had dropped. I only managed to pump out 2oz of milk per pumping session. Sedih!
However, since I have started consuming BB Plus Collagen, I can produce up to 10 oz per pumping session, if not more! Alhamdulillah, now I have managed to build up my EBM stock for Baby Zayd.

Post Natal Check-Up

I went to see my obgyn at Tropicana Medical Centre yesterday for a post-natal check-up.  Her main concern was to check my womb position as it was inverted during my 10th week of pregnancy.

Alhamdulillah… After the scan, she told me that my womb is in the correct position and it is clean.  She even said that with the womb in that position, it is really easy for me to conceive the next baby..

I truly believe that wearing Premium Beautiful religiously since the 3rd day after giving birth had helped to correct my womb position and returned it to its “youthful” state.  You can read about the benefits of Premium Beautiful here. With that, I am truly a satisfied customer.

No more tears

Just all smiles 🙂

Baby Zayd is smiling too, because Premium Beautiful also helps to boost my milk supply… So both mummy and baby are happy!

Confinement the Premium Beautiful Way – Part 2

After 2 weeks of confinement, I am loving the result of wearing the Premium Beautiful Waist Nipper as an alternative to the traditional bengkung.

The result can be seen as early as 2 days after wearing the waist nipper, that is Day #5 post-delivery (as you can only start wearing the waist nipper on Day 3 for those who give birth naturally).  Even the kakak that massaged me told me that my tummy and womb looks as if I had worn the traditional bengkung.  She gave me her seal of approval of course… My mom also had given her seal of approval, though she is quiet a traditionalist when it comes to confinement do’s and don’ts.

As for the weight loss issue, I am slowly trying to shed all the baby fats.  My last weight during pregnancy was 75.2kg and I am now down to 67kg.  I have 10 more kgs to go and let’s see if I can achieve my pre-pregnancy weight by the end of confinement period… Insyaallah…

Confession of a Heavily Pregnant Mummy

I don’t know about other mummy out there, but I turn into a cleaning freak once I enter my third trimester.  It happened when I was pregnant with Noah, and now it is happening again this time around too!

Expert calls it the “nesting instinct”.. but I just call it the cleaning freak phase.

I can’t seemed to stop… I need everything to be tidy… and trust me it is not easy when you have a 3-year old running around the house causing chaotic mess!

Besides being a cleaning freak, I also started to become a planning freak too… I kid you not when I say that I have already started planning the unborn baby’s aqiqah… Yeah.. I have googled some webpages to get some ideas on what kind of door gifts people give out nowdays… I even stumbled upon few party planning sites, which got me started to plan Noah’s birthday party too!  Teruk tak?

I am now in my 34th week of pregnancy… 5+ weeks to go.  Doctor had issued a strict order for me to rest as the baby is already in its birthing position and is engaged.  But my mind is going crazy thinking about things that I have yet to buy/get before the baby’s arrival.

H.E.L.P!

Luckily I have finished reading the Hypnobirthing: The Mongan Method book for the 2nd time around.  InsyaAllah I am ready to give birth to the baby naturally, with the assistance of my obgyn of course.  After attending the Hypnobirthing class 3 years ago, I am a firm believer of this method.

I have also managed to service my ever-so-reliable madela freestyle breastpump last week.  Alhamdulillah… I bought the 2nd hand breastpump from a dear friend who had used the pump for her 2 kids… and now I will continue to use it for my 2nd baby… I have managed to use it for over 1 year for Noah and am determined to fully breastfeed this baby too, InsyaAllah…

I have managed to book for a post-natal package from the Tanamera Spa.  I have heard good reviews about the place and service.  They will come over to the house and use their products for the massage.  Went to get a pre-natal massage few weeks back and I am hooked!  Memang sedap ok!  And I also managed to buy their best seller Cold Press Virgin Coconut Oil that can help ease the labor process and avoid any tearing.

I also have my trusted Premium Beautiful corset waiting for me after delivery to get me back in shape.  I can’t wait!  I have gained almost 13 kgs over the past 8 months and I will need to shed the fats and regain my pre-pregnancy weight fast!

This time around, I do not have to worry about boiling or sterilising all the baby bottles and teats.  Now, I have my very own Biozone Food Purifier that can ease the sterilising process!  All I need to do it just to purify a bowl of water and just wash all the bottles and teats with the purified water… SIMPLE and EASY!  I am really satisfied this “super gadget” can help me ensure clean and safe food for my family and clean bottles and teats for my baby too!  Read more on Biozone Food Purifier here.
