My Breastfeeding Journey : EBM Storage



Assalammualaikum,



Happy One month old sayang mommy, Razin !!!


Last 2 days I started fed razin with bottle, practicing before mommy masuk kerja. This is a must! for working mom, u have to start early so your baby can adjust and alhamdulillah Razin  can handle with it and he didn’t refuse it at all. Bravo my boy!


As I mention in my  previous entry, I already filled my fridge with EBM (EXPRESS Breast Milk) and been taught my mom how to care and handle with it. A bit tricky and work to do tho but yet the benefit is superb. Inshallah Razin, I’m trying my best to feed you with love and mommy’s milk darling.


For breast milk storage i bought the Lansinoh brand at Mothercare shop, at that time I assumed the price is reasonable (even though I know Ahmad J thought it is damn expensive ) 1 box with 50 bags for RM 72  So meaning 1 bag equivalent to rm1.44 and it definitely one-time-use only. My bad! Please kindly do some research before purchase babies –mom things at shop Nadia! Few minutes ago I just purchased breast milk storage through facebook , Autumn brand 2 boxes, 50 bags for ONLY RM 27. 42 cents per bag, *facepalm*. Well might be the brand but the function is still the same to keep the EBM and after that throw away.




Back to the EBM, I follow the MOH (Government hospital) steps.



Penyimpanan Susu Perahan 


Tempat / Suhu Penyimpanan EBM
Tmpoh penyimpanan
Suhu Bilik (23-25 celcsius )
4 jam
Bilik Berhawa dingin ( 15-25 celscuis)
8 jam
<15 celsuis
24 jam
Peti sejuk (2-4 celsius)
<7 days
Susu  Perahan Beku ( Frozen EBM)
Tmpoh penyimpanan
Bahagian pembekuan peti sejuk 1 pintu
2 weeks
Bahagian pembekuan peti sejuk 2 pintu
3 months
Deep freeze
6 MONTHS
Telah dicairkan dalam peti sejuk
24 hours ( and tidak boleh dibekukan 



I just use normal 2 doors fridge, all my frozen EBM only can lasts for 3 months inshallah.We need to transfer the frozen EBM  to peti sejuk bawah seawal mungkin, means for tomorrow feeding ,kite boleh prepare malam tu.Then for morning session ,just transfer amount susu yang baby kite perlu .Mcm my first time with razin , i hanya panaskan 2 ounces and the balance keep in fridge .But remember once you transfer it the balance only can lasts for 24 hours.On the first day I tried only one time feeding , morning .At first he struggle a lots , keep pushing the teat but because he was hungry at that time after bath I guess he don’t have choice either to drink it or NO –MILK .Ya mommy can be that cruel! It’s not easy peeps seeing ur son crying and kalau tak kuat semangat memang I bagi je DF but bila bab ni memang kena Hati kering sob sob ….and at last he finished the milk.Incase ta habis, dont worry the milk boleh simpan at room temperature for 1 HOUR!


On the second day, we fed him with EBM 2 session, morning and lunch time.Alhamdulillah , he accept and after that he also still direct feeding. Phew , lega, The one problem that can occurred in bottle –feeding and breastfeeding is *nipples –confuse –syndrome * .That time you baby maybe comfortable with the bottle and refuse to be feed direct .But don’t worry, if let’s say your baby refuse to bf, just remember the skin-to –skin  method,(put you baby on top of our chest )  our baby ada 6 sense , they can smell our body odour and kenali kite melalui itu. Inshallah he will continue bf. I really hope Razin and I don’t have that problem :)


How frequent I collect my EBM-pump?


Ikut suka! No specific time! There are lots of advice to set a specific time to pump the milk, some mothers prefer to pump every 3 hour , 4 hour .I trying to adjust time but staying at home, and attend to razin when he cry made my * jadual * kacau bilau. But I always set in my minds I really need to have EBM stock at least 2-3 portion – 3 times feeding for razin. Usually 1 session I manage to get 4- 5 ounces if I’m lucky. For me, not the amount or effective pumping time is the matters, but the effort and at least I able to keep as much as I can for Razin when i start working.


I also started to do power pumping ,and it’s will be my 4th night tonight, and surprisingly my EBM increase a lots .Alhamdulillah.Will share with you guys about the power pumping and my EBM stock.



Till then ,

~Nadia`

My Breastfeeding Journey : First Month

Assalammualaikum, 

EBM  : Express breast milk 
BF  : Breastfeeding 
DF : direct feeding 


I just can’t believe, 3 more days Razin will be inshallah One-Month-Old and Alhamdulillah I’m still able to breastfed him. I’ve join few  groups in Facebook regarding the breastfeeding –mom and read the successful breastfeeding mom as well and tell you what? it really motivate me to bf Razin inshallah until 2 years. Rania dulu I tak sempat nak fully bf atas few factors termasuk la lack of knowledge /experience. I still remember I ‘m not able to keep  enough EBM stock before started work, only gave one bottle equivalent to 4-5 ounces per day to the my babysitter (my aunt) which is definitely not enough for Rania, so we need to top-up with formula milk!!. And plus I only get my breast pump after 2 month.


So now learned from mistakes, I started to pump my breast milk when razin is 2 weeks old. I try to keep stock as many as I can.Kadang –kadang ada aura negative dtg menjelma when I only managed to pump 3-5 ounces per session. Ouchh see so sikit but NO NO , I need to be more focus, inshallah  I need to rajin meng-pump  and it seems that my milk is more  on night time so........




Especially now when Razin start to merengek manja even though tengah df, so aura negative datang  ,” susu mommy tak cukup ke ? “ ke razin tak kenyang ke ?....

Big NO –No it’s not true sayang , pertama sekali kenali size perut new born baby kite !!



There ‘re no such things “not enough susu ke “ baby tak kenyang ke , sebab because of that thoughts la buatkan kite terfikir untuk berikan formula milk, or ada yang lebih teruk lagi siap berikan makanan pejal pada baby before 6 months old, I bet you guys read about babies yang alami sakit teruk kat usus sebab babysitter/nenek berikan bubur  ! Nauzubillah!!
ALLAH swt jadikan susu ibu ni mengikut keperluan baby kite and umur and also size stomach nye , so inshallah cukup susu itu for our baby.

Besides df, breastpump spectra 3 ni la  my new best friend forever.ke mana i pergi kesitu la dia berada. Wish me luck peeps, towards exclusive bf 3 months.( my target now!)


My EBM yang paling banyak buat masa sekarang , Breast pump spectra 3 ni dah 5 tahun usianya, the suction still kuat mcm dulu . been thinking to purchase new compact ,light and double pumping breast pump for easy portable to work. But for now lets continue with the old breastpump until i decide which one as there are lots of brands and more choices berbanding dulu yang i tahu hanya medela and spectra.
 Let's continue our hardwork to stock more EBM and always keep in our mind, breast milk  is the best!!

 
Till then , 
will continue more regarding MY breastfeeding journey! Inshallah

Rania vs Razin



Assalammualaikum , 


Hello , Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri sayang sayang kawan ku blogger semua , raya kali ini mommy beraya di rumah saja la ,maklumla tgh dalam confinement . Kesian kat Rania la kena raya di rumah je , tak berjalan ke mana mana pun.

Inshallah , mommy habis confinement kite jalan jalan okay sayang.
Harini genap 24 days my lil son, Razin.Kejap je , pejam celik pejam celik dah almost one month.Masyallah can’t wait till pantang , kaki mommy terketar –ketar dah ni nak jenjalan .
Sejak discharge 15th July haritu , Razin’s serum Bilirubin tinggi melebihi paras normal which is 225.9 umol/L ( ref: 17-170 umol/L) ,jaundice . Nampak tak? memang tinggi especially razin baru 46Hours, not even 2 days yet tau. So I direct ke KPJ and admitted him for double phototherapy and exclusive direct feeding.Alhamdulillah after 2 days in ward, Razin discharge with bilirubin level 120 umol/L .yay….
So far nothing much different between Razin and his sister ,Rania , Cuma razin minum susu frequent dari rania and manja lebih agaknya .hehhe Thanks to ALLAH swt sejak Razin lahir , Rania being a really good sister,indeed she helps a lot .I’m bless.

Learned from mistakes, I started to keep ebm(express breast milk ) stock earlier. Target to breastfeed Razin 2 years. Inshallah. Pengalaman mengajar kita kan, I’ve read a lot about breastfeeding , shared experience with other mothers too and memang semangat sangat now.Hope tak hangat hangat tahi ayam la !!
Razin :
Day 1: 2.63 kg
Day 10: 2.9 kg
Day 21: 4 kg


Terkejut mommy tgk berat razin , alhamduillah  .Time kakak Rania dulu, 1 month baru 4.1 kg .itu beza nya baby boy and girl agaknya.wow so excited , a lots of things need to explore and new experience with lil baby.
Till then,

14th July 2014 (Monday)

 0740hrs

 Alhamdulillah so far puasa masa tu dah masuk 2 weeks , puasa I tak skip lagi , masih ada kudrat nak berpuasa walaupun sarat mengandung.As usual after sahoor dan subuh , get ready to go work and nak get ready rania to school. Luckily Ahmad J around as he take leave until Tuesday sebab cuti public holiday.As normal Ahmad J tak habis habis suruh I ambil leave suruh rest at home, bt knowing me degil skit ni I still berkeras nak pergi kerja , plus I have meeting that morning , Important meeting . But again, Kite merancang Allah swt yang menentukan. Akhirnya masa yang di nantikan tiba, one of 3 signs of labor dah muncul which is *turun darah * or medical term nya , ada bloody show . But no pain at all so I still maintain tunjuk to my mak and she said better check. At that time I’m 50 -50 sebab masa rania dulu banyak kali false labour , tapi teringat juga dulu time rania pegi labour room dah bukaan 7 cm.Dangerous , better not to take risk kan . SO sempat get ready rania to school and I went to hospital with Ahmad J, Mak masa tu siap ckp nnti if tak jadi ke pe call la .I pun masa tu rasa cam ta jadi je nak bersalin. Hehehe Btw the other 2 signs of labour that you really need to know and go to hospital is when your water breaks and when contraction starts frequent in every 10-20 minutes.

0825hrs

 Arrived at emergency department , after register ( I boleh siap jalan berlari lagi okay ) I serahkan diri ke labor room for CTG and all check up, My gynae is on leave but last Friday dia ada pesan if sakit just datang hospital and she will come to see me .Alhamdulillah nasib baik Dr Lim dtg juga even cuti kalau orang lain tak tahu la kan.CTG done , heart beat #babyadik Alhamdulillah in normal range , ikutkan contraction very mild : and tak sakit sgt pun.

0935hrs

VE (Vaginal Examination) done by midwife : bukaan OS is 4 cm.owh my ALLAh this is no joke I’m gonna deliver soon. Macam tak percaya this time Alhamdulillah Allah permudahkan jalan.

0945hrs

 Dr Lim Arrived from home and ARM (Artificial Ruptures of membranes ) done .or Bahasa melayunya pecahkan air ketuban . DR Lim offered some painkiller because after this I will start to feel  pain and contraction akan makin  kerap .alhamdulillah I still can bear the pain, so I refused! But Dr Lim did mention about Entonox gas , which is i think is not working pun for pain , she said eventhough i can *tahan * the pain why need to waste energy tahan sakit better take , lagipun the side effect only lasts for second.


1115hrs

They start with IV medication : Pitocin and lepas tu Ya Allah the pain mcm ,arghh I can’t define the pain with words.Tuhan je tahu , sakit nya tu even ahmad J Nampak macam tak senang duduk walaupun I tahu he try to look super cool with buat lawak bodoh dia and calm but deep in his heart I knew he worried .Maklumla first time teman isteri dalam labour room , Time rania he not able to be in the labour room together.jadi i amikla entonox gas for the first time.Frankly speaking , at that point of time tak de effect ape pun .Sakit itu masih sgt kuat !!.:P

Dup dup dap dup dap.. around

 1303hrs

Alhamdulillah lahir la anak kedua kami , putera kesayangan Ahmad J and Sharifah N , WAN RAZIN AJF ke dunia ni dengan sekali push without episiotomy .alhamdulillah . we did it , seriously I really proud of you suami, you so cool calm such a loving husband .i couldn’t thank you enough for all you did for us , rania and I rasa bersyukur sangat di pinjamkan seorang suami and baba kepada kami !thank you sayang sebab sanggup melayan kerenah i yang extra mengada,sorry ya. i'm in pain..:P Ampun ~~

 Thank you ALLAH swt , so next selamat berpantang to me . yay holiday with my adorable babies !

Till then, inshallah will share you my breastfeeding journey and hope!

Rania's School Holiday : Zoo Taiping & Night Safari

Assalamualaikum,

As promised, we brought Princess Rania for *jalan –jalan * memandangkan she started her school holiday last week. I felt guilty when Rania start to ask where we should go for holiday because in Rania’s mind Holiday means must-stay-at-hotel with family or BEACH! We both have to work on weekdays and luckily last weekend after work we did impromptu plan to brought Rania to ZOO Taiping & Night Safari.
After Kenduri Doa Selamat ( Berkhatan )  my nephew at Tapah, terus ke Taiping .Tidak dinafikan hampir semua orang termasuk my sister cakap rugi pergi waktu malam sebab mostly all animal tidur but knowing me, I nak juga alami nya sendiri so at least I can tell people I’ve tried, best or nope lain cerita. Lagipun this is my first time ke ZOO Taiping (I’m not sure la masa kecil pernah pergi ke tidak tu kena Tanya my mom) but definitely this is rania’s first experience (dulu bawa rania ke zoo Negara je).
Waktu melawat Night safari ialah dari pukul 8 malam hingga 11 malam kecuali weekend and public holiday will open until 12 midnight.


Ticket Price as below: this one I took from ZOO Taiping & Night Safari Official Website :
Bayaran Masuk untuk Night Safari            
Dewasa:RM20.00
Kanak-kanak(3 -12 tahun)            :               RM10.00
Kamera video    :               Free of Charge
Keretapi Mini Night Safari : Percuma


I’m not sure for price ZOO Taiping but I assume it will be cheaper than Night Safari’s ticket. There are mini train at night for side seeing but Ahmad J and I thought that it will be more fun if we just walked to see all animal closer, by the way it’s only 2.5 km. As been told by the tour guide in Night Safari, every each papan tanda details animal there will be a sign/symbol of sun or moon shows either the animal is nocturnal or day animal. As usual mommy and baba yang excited lebih sebab baru je jalan rania start to membebel hungry la, takut la because seriously no joke memang sangat gelap , bak kata husband nasib baik ada family lain yang juga berjalan kalau tidak memang we all naik train je.

Terlalu asyik menikmati keindahan alam ciptaan ALLAH swt , we all tak snap pictures pun and the main reason pun sebab GELAP kan so no point la nak snap pictures.

Ahmad J thinks we wasted  money because u tak ble nampak sangat pun semua binatang binatang dalam zoo ni sebab ada yang takde pun dlm cage ,and I memang sangat setuju la denga Ahmad J.Even kami jalan pun tak nampak clear inikan visitors yang naik train, dah la laju train tu memang sangat tak berbaloi. Good exercises for Ahmad J selepas  non-stop makan at kenduri keluar peluh tengah malam and bad night for me as I got body ache and muscle cramps .hurmmmm…

Selepas habis one round, there were a booth with your pictures taken at the entrance by the Zoo Taiping Staff  in frame, snowball  and in the plate as well for souvenir with ridiculous price yet because we don’t have any picture taken together, we bought it for RM 35.



And again this is my experience and opinion about it , if you guys have a great time kat sana care to share. The most important things is spending time with your loved ones no matter what kan ?even kalau ke pasar malam pun with your sayang pun happy.

Till then, lala land is calling will update more Rania’s School Holiday activities soon Inshallah .

Rania's baby adik : First Trimester

Assalammualaikum,


I still remember 8 months ago when 2 of my colleagues got pregnant .Masyallah is the best and good news ever, we shared same dream to get pregnant soon and yes they made it .Alhamdulillah. At that time, I always hope and pray to ALLAH SWT and i confident with ALLAH plan for us, HE knows better what the best for us. I keep waiting and waiting until 20th November 2013, my menstrual period delay 1 week, I’ve checked urine pregnancy test (UPT)  not once but twice and pretend not to be over-excited but seriously deep in my heart I wish I could shout and shared with my family and friends.


IT’S POSITIVE.




Tears *



Ahmad J trying not to be excited too when I told him the good news because still early and fragile, His act normal and started to be my “dietician” and Gynae Doc!
For double confirmation I run another UPT at Hospital and booked an appointment to see my Gynae doctor, Dr Lim Soo SOo a humble nice and easy-going Chinese lady doctor .



Alhamdulillah, This second pregnancy is totally different than my first, I don’t have a morning sickness symptom at all, I gain weight a lots and redness, itchiness and rashes all whole over my body and FACE!!

Became lazy obviously, Never cook for 8 months only baking which is very rare.
The only things I love to do with no excuses are cleaning clothes, hang the clothes and folds it .hahhhahhahha .

Kakak Rania is the happiest girl , when she know she will be kakak soon and inshallah she will share same birth month with her future baby adik , which in JULY .Save duet mommy baba celebrate birthday nnti sekali je hehehe .We started to educate her from day 1 until now , so that she will prepare herself to be kakak, learn to share, to help , and the ONLY thing on-going is the soon -to-be kakak-still-sleep under mommy’s armpit.

Boleh dia cakap nanti baby adik tido dalam baby cot , rania need somebody to hug me and sing lulabbly like mommy did.Baby adik can sleep by her/his own as in mommy tummy pun adik can sleep alone right ,mom?

Banyak akal betol.

Inshallah , Rania will understand soon will be the best sister to her brother /sister.

Till then, will share more about baby WR ‘s preparation. yehaaa…

P/s : Time to sing lullaby to princess kakak Rania.
