confinement period? waktu berpantangkah? why not ask your mum to come over and look after you?
faruqy: Confinement period in Bangi is OK for me as the hospital I go to provides paid daycare service of which the nurses come to our place to care for both mother and baby. However, my mother prefers to take care of us herself. Yet, she can't leave Rembau because my father is working and my youngest brother is staying with them. So, my husband will make an occasional weekday visit (in the middle of the week) to Rembau and we'd become the weekend couple :)
faruqy: What about Madihah? Would she be spending her pantang at your current place or at her mother's?
the confinement period after aiman was born was spent in my parents' in shah alam, because we were staying there back then. for aiman's upcoming brother/sister, Madihah told me that she'd like to spend it in Ganu. What more can I say? Silakan. Saya jadi bujang-lah. Muehehe..
faruqy: Amboi! Sukanya lelaki jadi bujang. The only thing my husband doesn't like about being bujang, I guess, is having to send his work attires to dobi for ironing. Haha!
aishah, utk set jamu lepas pantang tu, try to delay mkn jamu at least for 2 weeks since you want to fully breastfeeding. takut effect to baby bcos baby has very very immature liver, so he would get jaundice. hmmm word jaundice terrified me a lot. adam was jaundice for 1.5month. sedih ulang alik hospital selama tu.i didnt take any jamu, didnt bertungku, didnt mandi air serai wangi/pandan, didnt apply anything to my body! sbb pakai je adam terussssssss jadi oren!
Tuty, I've just came back from an antenatal class and was also told about the disadvantages of taking jamu for mothers who intend to fully breastfeed. Urut pun perlu dielakkan dulu sebab ada makcik urut yang terlampau tradisional sampai rahim yang sepatutnya turun sendiri dinaikkan (until the mother experiences severe bleeding; padahal doktor dah bagi ubat kurangkan bleeding dan kecutkan uterus secepat mungkin).Takpe, walaupun Adam jaundice lama dulu, tapi dia baby yang behave :). Kiranya, you got a great reward after such a challenge.
