my confinement man

I have like 3 or 4 heavy meals (nasik!) a day, and milo-biscuit in between. I'm always hungry, and I'm always hungry. Pity me, there are list of foods I should avoid. Yes confinement period is a challenge for hungry monster like me.

I remember I wrote about the confinement service, the one with massage and food package. We didn't hire them. But I must say that I'm very lucky to have my own confinement man, during his one month (of working)  leave dedicated for taking care of me and our baby. 

I haven't told about my frustration with my milk production, have I? It was the very first week of my baby arrival and my milk supply wasn't keeping up with the feeds. I almost surrender to formula milk, what a fool! It was him who made me keep believing in milk demand-supply,  and that brought me out from constant worry. Alhamdulillah, several tries on breast pump helped stimulate my milk production. And I'm now a happy breastfeeding mother!

kemas plus marinated!

I must admit, he is good with chores ; washing, cleaning, mopping, do groceries.. but I seriously doubt he could handle the kitchen work. He cooked everyday without fail, and it turned out to be the most delish home cooking I ever taste. Must be the love in every spices =)




Previously done by him, yesterday was my first experience of bathing baby. I must learn more from him , hey bathing baby ..eh even changing diapers could be a challenge sometimes when baby gets cranky =)


 sayang daddy

He has started his work yesterday, and I miss him around. 
Of all those I thank you, hubby !
