Feed The Future

Just have a chance to watch Magseven last nite because I missed the show on Sunday. For me, it's an eye opener documentary to create a public awareness of nursing in public to others. Hurmmm...Trust me, I know how it feels when a woman called mother who wants breastfeed her baby in open place.

My experiences,

It happened long time ago & I'm not married yet at that time. A woman show her skin (boobs to be exact) while breastfed her son inside the passanger coach. At that moment, as a woman, I feel so embarrased. I could still remember how the mens in the train looking at her. Pandangan lucah. Luckily the makcik was not a Malaysian, if not....huhu...lagi la malu :(

Two months after deliver Nuha, we took her to the mall. While bought something at exhibition hall, suddenly Nuha started to cry. I try to make her calm by holding her but it is not working. She cried more loud. Try to find a space for me to breastfeed her but failed. I had no choice. I walk as fast as I can & feed her in the TOILET! At that time I feel terribly upset. Even it just happened 1 time, but I'm gonna remember it for the whole of my life. Plus...I heard some nasty voice said...'Aih...anak kecik nak bawak jalan...tulah dia orang sekarang' Well...typical sound right? Hehehehe...

Since that day, I don't care about what people gonna say or looking at me while breastfeed Nuha. My baby is my priority. Alhamdullilah, my husband support me on this. At the beginning, he is the one who cover up us. He said...'Takpe, jangan malu, I cover, susukan Nuha' :) Thank you ayah for your support! We love you! Then, slowly I manage to breastfeed even when he's not around to cover up us. The confident came after a few times doing so. Never get shy mommies. It's nothing wrong to nurse in public. But, please cover & never show your skin to others. For muslim, it is our aurat to take care of. You can use your shawl (like I use to do, tips - wear long shawl), nursing cover or even cardigan can cover your skin while breastfeed.

Btw, here is the only picture that I took while feeding my future :) Alhamdullilah. Thank you Allah for the rezeki. I can't believe my breastfeeding journey gonna reach almost a year (another 2weeks left). Insyallah, I'll continue it for another year. Wish me luck & all the best mommies!

Homemade Solid Food

Here is some of the menu that I made with lots of loves for my baby recently. From L-R : breakfast - keledek goreng, lunch - nasi goreng cina, snack - betik, teatime - cucur nestum.

Tell you the truth, for the past 3months I didn’t cooked at all (since I’m stayed with my parents for a short period & of course I love to eat my mum cooks...alasan..hehehe). Setakat pegang senduk kacau gulai tak dikira masak la kan. Hahaha.

Now, I’m back to rock my kitchen ;p Cooking always is my favourite. You know…the feeling of satisfaction when seeing your family eat & full their empty stomach. Then they burp & say Alhamdullilah… those normal & everyday reacts makes me a happy mom & wife. Yeah, I’m so delight to cook for them. Insyallah, I’ll always cook with loves & passion in future. Air tangan ibu & isteri pengikat kasih sayang family =)

I notice Nuha suka foods yang goreng-goreng macam cucur, just like her ayah. So I use either olive oil or unsalted margarine (she allergic to butter – dairy products) to cook her food. Kalau goreng cucur, masakla mak nak guna olive oil ohhh anak. Mak just guna minyak sawit jelah ye. Hehe…

Insyallah, I’ll share some recipes that I had been trying so far. If you want to get info about homemade solid food, come & join the HSFFYB group in FB. Keep on cooking healthy foods mommies!

Salam. Hi! Alhamdullilah, we’re already settling down in JB since last week. Both of us are doing just fine. Try to coop & adjust the life with new environment here.

First week away from families was terrible. I miss them so much. At this age, I think the feeling of homesick was totally different. Dulu homesick jugak bila masuk asrama & uni. But this time around is much sicker. Hahaha. You know…a motherly feeling.

A day we had to say good bye was fully loaded with tears & sorrow…such a drama here. Hihihi. Both of mak & I can’t resist crying even though we try hard not to shed any tear…I know how my mum feels. Mak don’t want to let Nuha go… She is the one who jaga Nuha since the day Nuha was born until last week. Nuha was her companion back then. Her love & care to Nuha was unconditional. Pure love I must say. So it’s hard for her to say good bye to her one & only granddaughter.

Until today, every time we had a conversation thru phone, either mak or me will get sebak & shed the tears. Hehehe. Husband said I’m just like mak. Jenis yang senang nangis (Ratu air mata) ;p

Insyallah, sooner or later everything will turn stable, especially the emotion part. hehe. I’m a full time-housewife now. Will blog about it later ;p

Note : Today is my parent 30th wedding anniversary. Thank you Allah for the happiness, barakah & blessing. Alhamdullilah.
