being a breastfeeding mother

firstly alhamdulillah and thank you sooo much for all the doa and well wishes..

alhamdullilah..its been 3 weeks now...i've been wanting to update earlier, finally only today sempat...

well its been an amazing 3 weeks so far..now i understand how all mothers feel when they say, bila baby sleep u actually miss them..

when baby is asleep i open my phone and look at his pictures from day 1...so far we've taken his picture everyday, subhanallah, in 3 weeks he has changed so much..

breastfeeding, alhamdulillah its been going well...let me tell you to all mum-to-be's, breastfeeding awal-awal tu sakit, but after like a week, then everything dah numb, it gets much easier...nobody told me that it's sakit...and it requires alot of determination...the day baby was born, he was asking for milk every half hour..dahlah i just came out from the operation theater,n sooo tired...my baby didn't give me a chance and asked for milk so frequent. and when he suck it was soo sakit...

and when the nipples crack and your baby suck it, its also sakit

day 2 he did the same thing, asked for milk every half hour...and this time my drugs is a lot less, so when my uterus was contracting while he was breastfeeding, ohh it was sakit as well...giving up almost became an option because it was just so overwhelming, n some people kept on saying oh u tak cukup susu kot..

but my family, my hubby, and the nurses all supported and gave me motivations to keep on going...esp from my mum, who reminded me that breast milk is rezeki from Allah swt, i must YAKIN that its enough for my baby, the more the baby suckle the more milk will be produce...and true enough a few days later, all started to settle down..and now alhamdulillah i'm starting to pump the extra milk..stock up alhamdulillah, of course tak byk lagi..just slowly pumping...

so my advice to everyone, DONT give up..because MashaAllah when ur susu is banyk and ur baby is well fed, its just the best feeling..

Ramai say breastfeeding babies, no need to burp...but my baby if tak burb he will be so tak senang, he will cry n cry..n sometimes muntah...but when he is well fed, n then he burps, alhamdulillah he will sleep nicely..

u know the funny part, i think breastfeeding is more overwhelming that my c-section n healing the pain n my wound..but now i'm glad i didnt give up...alhamdulillah...

InshaAllah the next entry i will write about my labour...

p/s: does anybody has any natural remedy for diaper rash??..i have been putting cream, and now better alhamdulillah, tapi i want to put something natural pulak, because i dont want to put so much chemical on my baby's skin.

breastfeeding memang mnyakitkan mase mule2. very true. org tua2 kate, baby boy memang kuat menyusu compared to baby gurl.. :)

Zaff Zafrina said...

i'll asked doc about the burp. baby NEED & HAVE to burp. for breastfeeding babies, kena burp for at least 10 minutes. sebab nanti later-later, diorg akan sakit or byk kali muntah & digestion system diorg akan ada problem
