Nyehnyeh..sounds so professional pulak kan siap ada jurnal ni..heheh..
But because ada yang dah tanya..
so let me share u the secret of me having the 100 packet of 4oz frozen ebm by 2month of my confinement period.
(kan ke lagi best dapat tulis cenggini.."so let me share u the secret of me having 1 million dollar by the age of 28..heheheh..but the proudness is still the same la having 100 packet of ebm compare with 1 million dollar..hahaha)
As i mentioned in previous post..iam not the kind of "meriah susu" mommy..
I start to bf since baby Mia is one day old..meaning the first food she took is my milk..wink wink..
shes so clever..first trial je dah success to suck my booby..
On the second day, both of us went back to my hometown..and baby Mia start to show her taring on that nite..dia nangis..dia nangis n nangis for the whole nite..me,en.laling and my mom take turn to take care of her..the non stop cry makes me wanna run away from her..i hope shes still in my tummy..(nasib baik tak meroyan)..i try to bf her all night but shes kind of tak puas..
The next day, baby mia still cannot sleep..still crying like mad..i dont know what else can i do..my mom and my day ask me to give her formula..but i still refused coz i know baby at that age oni need one spoon of milk to feed her.takkan la my bm tak sampai one spoon..i asked en laling to bring Mia to An Nur..mb sumtin went wrong ..so en.laling,my mom,me and mia went back to my home in bangi.when we reached home,i try to pump my milk,but notin comes out..and i started to realized that Mia's face was so dry..mb my mom was right..i dont have any milk..i dont want my baby to dehydrate bcoz of my stubborness of giving her the formula..
So..i finally agreed to feed her the formula yang sangat mahal..one small tin is about RM50 (forgot already whats brand that daddy bought dat day)..with a super heavy heavy heart i prepare 2oz of formula for her..and she sleep like a baby after that..mb my moms was right..she was hungry for 2 days..no wonder menangis tak berhenti..i pumped my boobs every 2hours to stimulate it..first pump until 4th pump no milk come out ..never give up never surrender..
i bf her everytime she woke up..and still she need another 2oz of formula on dat day..on the midnite i pumped for the fifth time ,and guess what i produced the milk already..yeahhhhh..not much pun..not even 0.5oz..i pumped n pumped every 2hours that nite..and manage to collect total amount of 1.5oz for 3 pumping session.siket gila kan
Alhamdulillah on the fourth day my milk start to flow..i stop to give her formula eventho my parents asyik berleter nak bancuhkan susu for her..i never give up to bf her and it seems work on me..my mom ask me to finish kan the one tin formula tu pun i reject...walaupun membazir rm50, biarlah..as long as i know my darlin mia having the goodness of the breast milk.
so for the new mother dont give up to bf ur baby eventho u think ur not producing any milk..stimulate the boobs by pumping and direct bf..insyaallah "milk will come softly"..ekekek..
so during my confinement period, my pumping schedule is as below (i start pumped for ebm storage at 2weeks old Mia.
i manage to colleact around 11-12oz perday and will use 2oz for Mia's bottle training.
so my frozen ebm will be 2-3 pack of 4oz..so thats how i did to collect the 100pack of ebm during my confinement period..4pumpping session daily with no ngelat ngelat..rajin kan..but i do enjoy my pumpping time..tgk susu flow into the bottle macam tgk duit jatuh dari langit..
and now bila dah start kerja..my pumping schedule change as below
Around 22oz perday..
Full day at nurserry Mia need around 6x2.5oz = 15oz..
so i still have 2 pack of 4oz to store as a frozen ebm..
if hantar half day , Mia need 3x2.5oz=7.5oz
balance 3-4pack of 4oz for storage..
im not yet expert pun..still in learning process..but i do hope i can maintain my productivity until my darlin mia turns two yo..
To all mothers who already give up on bm..dont worry,i dont judge you on that pun..i do believe that all mothers want the best for her baby..if nak bagi formula pun mesti kita nk bagi the best formula for her..yang paling mahal pun takpe..klu nk ckp minum susu lembu nti anak tak pandai..hellloooo i dulu minum susu lembu taw..pandai sampai masuk university jd engineer juga..if ada yg ckp baby yang tak minum susu ibu tak sayang mak dia(bonding)..meh sini i nak nak ketuk kepala anak yg tak sayang kat mak..so dont u worry babe..
