What’s in my mind after my maternity leave?

Lot of things bugs my mind right now. To be exact, things that I have to face when I start work after Hari Raya. Huhuhuhu….

1st, of course about my beloved princess Aimee… After spending 2 months leave with her, of course I will miss her a lot later. And I also worry about the women that will take care of her when I start my work. My in law hired this one Indonesian women aged 24 years to help Opah to take care of my daughter. I met her today. She have a 4 years old son that she will bring together when she work at my in law’s house. My in law agreed to pay her RM500/month, which I and hubby not so agree (her scope of work is only to take care of my baby). Doesn’t it sound too expensive? But, after few discussions with my in law, I and hubby agreed with the choice. I and hubby will pay a bit extra compared to the nursery rate, then my in law willingly to pay the remaining. We think that is better than to send her to nursery right? At least, we have a BIG CCTV at my in law’s house, which is Opah… Heheheheh… Safer I guess. We’ll see after I start work after Raya.

2nd, is about my OHSAS exam on 27th & 28th Oct 2009. I’m so scared and nervous okay! Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! Help me!!! I haven’t started to read anything yet… Huhuhuhuhu…. Too many to read… Argghhhhhh!!!! Chaiyok Amisah!

3rd, of course the work, beloved Dexter… Huhuhuhu…..

4th, is about my breastfeeding. Now, I have started to stock up milk for my baby. Based on my previous experience in feeding my baby through bottle, she could drink up to 4 ounces every time I feed her. So, I put the milk every 4 ounces in each bottle. And I think, everyday, she may need 4 bottles while I away for work. So, now my problem is, I afraid that later when I start work, I couldn’t stock enough milk for her. Because right now, I only managed to get 4-6 ounces in a day (read: with 2-3 times pumping). So, to all mommy who exclusively breastfeeding their baby out there, could you give me some idea on how much usually a baby girl need for every feeding using a bottle? How often usually the baby need to be feed? How often usually will you pump when you at work? 3 times? 4 times? How many ounces usually will you get every time you pump when you at work?

5th, I seriously miss my mom and my dad😥 I really hope that they are still here with us😥

  1. sayang, kalau nak banyak, kena lebih banyak pump.. sekarang ni siang ko bagi yang perahan sahaja.. kalau tidak buat tandem nursing.. sebelah pump, sebelah aimee.. lagi laju.. tu yang aku baca aaa.. aku pun yet to try.. hehehehe

  2. Hi aweng!
    Bestnya dgr ko ngan mel beriya2 nk bf aimee! Hihihi kuatkan semangat okeh. Make sure dpt capai target minimum 6mths exclusive bf tau! pahtu buat milestone baru lagik 6 bulan dan seterusnya.. hihihi. Just nk share pengalaman aku with my little Damia.

    Setiap hari kt opis aku maintain 3 session. Morning (time masuk kije) ngan petang (before balik) ngan tengahari (after lunch/before zuhur). Yg 3 ni biasanya aku dah dpt cukup stock untuk esok laa.. make sure minum air before pump tau. Yup, double pumping mmg lebih efisyen (dan jimat masa of course!).

    Kt rumah plak.. mcm mast ckp, direct feeding sebelah + pump sebelah tetapi ini hanya applicable masa baby kecik pasal dah besar dia dah pandai tarik tu tarik ni nanti habis semua tumpah HAHAHA! Pahtu aku rasa ko pun dah tau, time yg paling banyak sekali susu ialah masa bangun tido hahaha so jgn ler lepaskan peluang pump sebaik bangun tido/subuh.

    Aku rasa rugi sgt sesapa yg x cuba sedaya upaya susukan baby dia.. so aweng, chaiyuk!

  3. allo mama aimee..

    masih runsing pasal bf aimee ye.. normal la tuh.. esp biler nak masuk keje.. riso susu x cukup sume.. mm dont worry too much.. kite pon camtu gak dulu..

    ni experience kiter la.. mase baru2 keje kite perah 3 kali sehari.. sebelum tengahari, sebelum balik keje & malam sebelum tido.. normally, cukup untuk stok untuk keesokan harinye.. kalo lebih alhamdulillah boleh wat stok extra, normally kite bekukan yg balance tuh.. brp oz nak bagi bergantung pada keperluan baby.. mcm aimee boleh habiskan 4 oz, betulla tu wat stok 4 oz dlm satu botol.. (ermm kuatnye susu, nnt membesar bagai johan.. hehehe).. lagi satu petua, after die menyusu akak perah lagi.. (kerap perah lebih byk susu terhasil.. ibarat biler tank dah kosong, die akan tau nak isi balik.. hehehe… –> ayat lebih mudah difahami la kot).. cube makan lagi benda2 yang boleh bykkan susu + kerap lagi perah.. sbb mase ade prob (susu kurg) kiter try cmtu, alhamdulillah jadi.. mula2 mmg la sekali perah dpt stgh oz, 1 oz.. tp xpe, at least ada.. lama2 ok balik..

    mm boleh gak try cam mast ckp.. menarik.. tp x penah try & x penah tau pon..

    gambar aimee tuh kite xleh transfer lagi la.. nak mms pon mslh.. hmm sori byk2.. nnt kiter try lagi.. jgn mara aa… hehehehe..

    salam peluk kat aimee…. mmmuahh!
