harith ami & muhriz

In this scorching hot weather,tiba tiba teringat winter la pulak.Dulu winter asik ckp nak balik Malaysia,sini sejuk sejuk.sekarang tak on air cond habis berpuluh puluh.Among the three countries i have lived in;the States,England and Deutschland,yg teramat sejuk adalah semasa di West Lafayette,Indiana.Pernah the temperature drop down to -20Celcius,boleh imagine?So kalau pegi Deutschland masa winter,punya la eksen,asik ckp kat hubby "alaa sejuk sikit je nie" padahal dah ketaq kepala lutut jugak.I wonder lah bila boleh pergi balik.Tapi definitely pegi cuti-cuti tak sama dgn duduk kat sana.The feeling will never be the same.Tipulah kalau cakap tak rindu living abroad;the environment,the weather,the food,the people and the lifestyle hiks.But the other part of me sgt bersyukur sudah berada di Malaysia,dekat sikit nak balik kg!Tapi sekarang sgt panas rasa nak pergi mana mana yg sejuk,tapi mesti berpijak di bumi yg nyata,ke cameron highlands pon jadilah!

For a woman who is new to breastfeeding, support from hubby is very crucial.That is something money can't buy and that is the best thing our darling hubby can do when we are struggling through the first few weeks of nursing,when we are still confused and incompetent.I think i wrote it here before,if it hadn't been for hubby's support,i may not be confident to breastfeed our little one for this long.
People need to know that fathers these days are also aware and support breastfeeding too.And i am not surprise when some fathers or fathers-to-be contact me enquiring about the breastpump!Kudos to you!

Anyway,here are some ways how hubby shows that he supports me:

He helps to wash and sterilise the breast pumps and bottles then assemble the pump again.
In a steam sterilizer.Yes,it is as easy as ABC but action speaks better than words :)

He never questioned my purchase of the expensive pump and other breastfeeding related products.
In fact,he was the one who surveyed and purchased the freestyle for me kihkih,alhamdulilah.Kalau lah hubby ckp "Alah,beli yg cheapest one in store je",maunya mama meroyan nak freestyle nie last2 kene beli jugak ;p Breastfeeding is supposed to be free, but having a good pump make breastfeeding easier and convenient.And being me,pantang org kate makan ini itu boleh boost milk production,semua i try and hubby never complained.

He reads about breastfeeding and promotes breastfeeding to others
Hubby was initially more knowledgeable than i am about breastfeeding.He was the one who handled and stored the breastmilk.When i pumped,he was the one who marked and stored the milk(why past tense?sebab sekarang i stop pump kejap hiks).He often asks other parents if their babies are breastfed hahaha,sapa2 anak minum susu lembu,larikkk,JK!He often tells them he believes muhriz is hardly get sick due to breastfeeding.

He too woke up during night feeding
I fed the baby,he burped him.Muhriz was not a colicky baby but to burp him took sometimes,puas tepuk belakang,letak kat bahu la.Usually i gave up on this and passed him to hubby.

He is proud when I breastfed in public.
And by that,i am even prouder of him.Whenever Muhriz wants to nenen,he will accompany me to the nursing room or kalau budak tue dah melalak nak nenen there and then jugak,he will take out the nursing cover from our baby bag,put it on me and help to shield however possible.

So daddies,you don't have to feel left out.Your role makes a difference.
I hope more guys out there will support breastfeeding :)
Tickets at 10 cents!We just got ours,have you gotten yours?
I certainly need my blogging mojo back.Asik tulis,save or delete hehe.

So another week goes by.Minggu depan balik kg hurray!

Update on dudu;He just found out the way to climb his high chair.First he will make sure his fisher price bouncer is close enough to the high chair,then he will climb up the bouncer,stand on it and hang on to the high chair!sakit jantung mama asik nak memanjat nie.And currently he is obsessed with ripping pages off the book!So there goes few pages of my What to Expect,his bapa's Einstein Biography and his own TS book.Meal time turned into a battle time for 2 weeks until i gave up giving him rice porridge.Ok fine my 9 mths old son,dah besar ye,tanak bubur mama tak kasi bubur dah.So his menu will be something like this,nasi with chicken/chicken balls,fish/fishballs with veggie(carrot,timun,baby corn),steamed tofu,chicken spaghetti cooked with butter and fruits(honeydew,banana,apples,avocado) for snack.Utk mkn dgn nasi i usually buat soup je la but to serve,jgn bagi soup,he hates it huhu.Makan sendiri ok,mama boleh suap sikit2 jer.

Owh what we assumed was high fever previously was actually the symptom for measles(campak).Muhriz's temperature went up all the way to 40C and down for three days.Kesian baby,hubby pon ambil cuti.Muhriz had never been that sick before,never wanted to stay still tapi bile dah demam nie,jadi anak koala,wanted to be held and rest his head on our shoulders most of the time.On the fifth day,demam almost nak hilang but the rashes started to show up.Being first time parents,we went to the dr to confirm kan that was measles.So another 3 hari merengek-rengek,total up to 1 week!Taking care of a sick and cranky baby for one week was not easy.Nor it was fun.Cooking was out of question,mak pak tak mkn betul takpa.tak tido mlm takpa.What is hard is seeing our little one going through hard time,suffering and feeling uneasy.Now that he's back and crawling,nak suruh tido pon berperang ok hahaha.

polka dots baby

Becoming a mother is one of the best gifts and i could not ask for more.Thanks Allah.

And just how did we celebrate the day?Staying home bergolek golek 3 beranak!A total bliss! hihi.And look at this cheeky boy,he turned 9 mths 4 days ago!And he sure knows how to keep mama busy,ape lagi sepah and sepah rumah.The other day die celup tangan dlm deep fryer,nasib baik it was turned off,minyak tak panas.orait,i better keep going before this little monster rises from his morning nap.Happy Mother’s Day to all mommies out there :)
