mummy's experience..

hi dear friends..
i just want to share few of my experiences being a mother..especially to working mothers..
Nobody says being a mother is easy, nor hard..with time and experience,insya allah we improve.
We do make mistakes too,now and then..but we eventually learn from it..


- Breast milk is the best milk for babies..i have problems to continue exclusively breastfeeding my child for more than 6 months..Its due of my milk supply and busy hectic work..inssuficient pumping,stress , lack of sleep and rest contribute to the failure of exclusively BF..

so,i gave my child formula milk + BF..alhamdulilah,not much problem after that..but i wish i could fully bf my next baby til 1 year ++.


- I was based in selangor, my parents took care of my little girl from birth til she reached 7 months..She was never sick,she has no eating problems and most importantly she's happy because of all the attentions she gets..

BUT..things started to change once we're transferred to unite with my hubby in Labuan..i have no choice, but to send my lil arissa to nursery because im working..starting from that point, the challenges started to come one by one..Arissa fell sick often,once in 2 weeks..She doesnt want to eat or drink that much..And most importantly,she's not happy! A mother could tell how her daughter feels..and i could feel Arissa's feeling..SHe's missing her grandparents!

Few times,i cried coz kesian kat arissa..few times, i had to take emergency leave coz she fell sick..There's a time she fell at nursery n bruised her face..a mother's heart shattered every time this kind of thing happen to her child...

Luckily,hubby is soo understanding and supportive...and we never give up..we hop from 1 nursery to the other, to find the best nursery..and alhamdulilah,we found the best nursery for her..SHe loves the caretaker there and also her new friends..She always smiles happily every time i send her..


-my lil girl, arissa is a picky eater..just like her mama..hehe..She doesnt want to eat the same food in the same day..she likes,i have to invent new recipes that she loves..A bit tiring at first, but once i see my lil girl loves the food ,i feel soooo happy and relieved..

Oh eats a little during teething period..and sometimes fall sick too..teething period needs a lot of mother's patience..

- I read in a baby book, parents should talk to the baby since birth because babies can understand.
I find this true..sometimes when my baby is naughty,i scolded her and shows "NO" gesture..She will sit down quietly and hug me,Konon pujuk mama lah..hehe..When she misses me or her papa, she will kiss our cheeks..
A baby's laugh or smile really can make u forget ur problems/ hectic work...=)

I love u,my little girl..Arissa Maisara..Mama will try to be a better mom k =)
